icon Crippling inconsistency within GatEB that ruins all DROD lore (+1)  
Prologue room: There's a chest to the right of the bed, and a sink near the barrels at the bottom right corner of the room.
Epilogue room: There's no chest to the right of the bed, and no sink.

Literally unplayable, lore completely destroyed, and worst of all, Beethro has no sink.

Please fix this Caravel. This is a horrfyingly dire situation we have here.

The chest and sink were stolen while Beethro was telling the story. Recovering the chest and sink was originally going to be part of the plot of TSS, but when the planned feature list included everything but the kitchen sink, the sink plotline had to be cut.

The chest is a legitimate plot hole though.

But who stole them? And how did Beethro not notice the thief?

This is a serious canon-shattering issue. We need to remedy this as fast as possible.

Beethro wasn't in the room when the chest and sink was stolen.

The story was told over the course of a few weeks. Beethro had to go work at the Grill, go to sleep etc etc. So there plenty of opportunities for someone to break in.

Makes you wonder, who would break into the home of a smitemaster? Seems like there should be less dangerous targets for a thief.

Sounds like all of this begs to be resolved in the context of another Smitemaster's Selection?

Or one of our community architects may take a stab at it.

Wait, you don't--you don't know why the chest and sink are gone at the end of the game? We...were you not paying attention to any of the plot?

As far as I am aware, the Tuenan Captain's great grandson did not rob Beethro of the chest and sink.

I thought Tendry was the Captain's grandson; ergo, he didn't steal it.
