Jade Empire was so good. It’s still one of my favs from Bioware ever. I see a lot of shades of it in Dragon Age.
Eeeyup! Spirit World/The Fade, Jade Golems/Caridin’s Golems, Wynne/Cole/Wild Flower Spirit Sustaining Life, etc
DA:O might have been BG’s technical spiritual successor, but Jade Empire has its narrative DNA stamped all over the series.
