Ahh I see. I guess Andwhy's theory could be true depending on when Quote was submerged. The water could've risen in spurts not killing him completely. Not too mention, the damage beyond repair could mean his memory, but I see how his theory could be flawwed.
The mod is like so epic! Its fits the story really well! The only thing is that if you resume from the last save(in Arthur's house) you still see a sprite of king. Other than that it's really well written!
