There is an amusing video out there, with the Drake possessing a Sorcerer just a bit before it dies. The player kind of misses that happening and his other pawns were either dead or just were equally distracted. Either way, the Sorcerer then proceeds to wipe the rest of the party with a Maelstrom. A short lived victory indeed.One of my favorite moments involved having a friend's level 95 pawn, which made the game a tiny bit easier (I think there's some scaling going on). So there I was, traipsing around at like... level 20 or 30, when I stumble across a dragon. This was the first dragon I had stumbled across in the wild, and I was eager to take it on. Its level wasn't that much higher than mine, so I charged headfirst into the foray...
Only to learn that dragons can mind control your pawns.
...and... that having a level 95 mind controlled pawn wiping your party is one of the most "wow, that escalated quickly" moments in a game. I did not expect her to utterly and totally demolish my party so ruthlessly.
We all died and I reloaded my last save and we avoided the crap out of dragons after that.
