[Spoilers]Shadowbringers is a Narrative Masterpiece, and Here's Why

Only thing I disagree was that the ancient Ascians were "perfect" beings. Its pretty clear from the MSQ and sidequests that they were as flawed as mortals and can make mistakes. Their overpowered nature in creation magicks ended up being their downfall because nothing could keep that power in check without sacrificing their liberties.

Emet's a good villain but his viewpoint of the mortal races and his methods in dealing with them is flat out fascist (fittingly, from the dude who founded Allag and Garlemald) as the ancient Ascians differences with the mortals are pretty superficial, kinda like the issue with the "Spoken" mortals and the beastmen issue.
