Is Helmut an optional recruit?

Postby KFCrispy » Mon Aug 03, 2015 1:14 am

i am working on corrections to the recruitment page and watched someone's playthrough of the Helmut battle to liberate Razril. you do get to ask Helmut to join or say something like "suffer the consequences" so i'm wondering if he's really an automatic recruit (which we list him as right now) or if you have the choice to kill him.

He's optional in two ways.
1. You can kill him.
2. THis has something to do with this (I call it) "atonement rating". If you've been acting nice and forgiving all the time, you can recruit him, if you've been punishing, the option to not execute him doesn't come up at al. This is similar to Snowe's scenes.

In my own version i always get the choice to recruit him or kill him....no matter my forgiveness rating.
