This thread contains spoilers of Desperate Measures, and the rest of the elder god storyline so far.
So, we've done Kerapac real dirty (honestly I was onboard with Kerapac's plan, but wanted him to stall. With all the gods' help we could evac the world a lot easier).
BUT we used the aptly named "eye of Jas" to sow Kerapac to the Needle. But something I noticed about that object- it is the same kind of object as the observations we found waaay back in A Heart Of Stone.
Along with one we have yet to find a use for in game- The Blank Observation. (Which I actually immediately got back from Azzanadra during this new quest, thinking it'd become relevant) The Blank observation was never filled- however I suspect it could be at some point in the future, when we next get access to Kerapac, to absorb the effects of the eye of Jas, and allow us to free him once more, putting the needle back in play.
However to do that, we'll need to get through the elder gods, and the newly bound dreaming dragonkin.
Thankfully, we happen to know an tribe of talented dream witches. Kerapac's device, while ill fated and ill advised- was luckily observed by us and the most talented enchanter known to mankind- Charos.
So maybe more of a two steps backwards one step forward for future dealings with the Elder gods?
Any other thoughts on how we will combat the elder gods? "We call it being a hero"
"That's interesting, we call it utter stupidity"
