Dungeon Siege II Chat Log

The SiegeNetwork a transcript of the recent chat they hosted with Gas Powered Games about Dungeon Siege II. Here's a bit to get you started:
Will there be bigger cities where you can interact more?

<[GPG]Bert> The introduction of town portals has allowed us to dramatically increase the size of cities, mostly to accomodate the huge increase in NPC interaction, but also to allow us to portray change over time for the character's actions and choices. It is funny really, our "streaming world" was so important that we forgot to allow non-linear gameplay in DS1. Not anymore, and the story and characters show for it.
