After I allow her to accompany the Silver Princess' ghost off back to the village, where am I supposed to find her? Was she taken away by the slavers and thus will be found as I progress through the story, or am I missing something? Oh, and is there supposed to be no journal entries for the Silver Princess quest or did I run into a glitch?

Yes, she's supposed to leave and you don't see her again until you get to the slaver's fortress, much later in the game.

Chaarna will be found again in Markessa's fortress. She has a romance option as well.

Hi!

I tried playing CA a few months ago but I didn't get enough time to get far in the game. Since I'm now a little less busy, I've reinstalled it (version 0.44).

What's already different is Chaarna (a NPC which was not in the previous version I played) asking you to come with her instead of doing the first main quest (well that's what I've understood). If I accept, can I still make that quest with her in the party or am I supposed to refuse her suggestion?
I intend to make a romance with Chaarna so I don't want to mess it up right from the beginning. ^_^

Thanks.

If memory serves, both options (Silver Princess and Sunless Citadel) should be fine for eventually romancing Chaarna. Just that Chaarna won't join you if you do the Sunless Citadel. I don't think the romance has even been written yet, but I could be wrong. Haven't had time to play with the latest patch installed.

I'm kind of partial to the NPCs found in the Silver Princess route, though.

Thanks for the quick answer :)

So I suppose I'll be able to meet Chaarna later in the game if I choose the Citadel. Is the "Silver Princess" thing still available after the Citadel?

I think going to one disables the other. It did for me in .43, but I haven't played a .44 game yet. I think this was mentioned in the bugs thread.

As for Chaarna, yeah. Whether you go Silver Princess or Sunless Citadel, you find her later along the game.

Chaarna?s romance is incomplete. I am unsure if SirBillyBob has included all of her romance banters and flirts yet. (I have been busy focusing on other NPC's?also I don't enjoy writing about love...I prefer writing Althon or Vildamyr...?) There is enough banters now for an enjoyable roleplaying experience. More will be written for high level adventures. I am still toying with the idea of Candella or Aleigha having a romance option.? Candella has an interesting twist in her storyline(I think Aleigha would be easy to write though)but it would be up to the players which one should be a romance and I wouldn't start writing it until I finish up with Kessa and Althon. ...
I am also partial to the Silver Princess NPC's. In the near future their will be an option for Icar to join the group if they take my b route and not go to the swamp. (I am really enjoying writing banters with Rurik, Aleigha and Icar.)
BTW Chaarna has actually been planned longer than most of the NPC's. She didn't make the first cut of NPC's but I have always had some idea what I wanted to do with her. If you play the Palace of the Silver Princess, you will not be able to go to the Sunless Citadel.

Correct, you should not be able to do both mods. Right now, it seems there is a hole that allows you to do both. For Chaarna, it doesn't matter which one. The romance isn't until you rescue her later. Even then, you only have the rest of the slaver mods to do at this point, so the romance won't go far because the game will be complete before her romance is.

Once we have the new Selgaunt city added, you should be able to run through more of her romance (and the other ones as well).
