...was called the Blackhearted before she betrayed Bhaal in ToB? Or was she never called this, and I just picked it from some fanfiction or another by accident?

Probably. Betrayal doesn't really imply blackheartedness, and I'm sure she wouldn't get a lovey squishy name worshipping Bhaal.

I believe it's mentioned all of one time in the default game.

She calls herself that in the game, yes. In the pocketplane cutscene after you whacked the five Bhaalspawn. Dialogue MELISS01, to be precise.

"True enough! So be it. My name is Amelyssan the Blackhearted, High Matriarch and greatest Deathstalker of my Lord Murder's Bhaalist temple. 'Twas I who led all the chants in His holy name!"

Also, Bhaal calls her by that full name when he replies to her in the next cutscene (DLG BHAAL01).

"And so you have betrayed me, Amelyssan the Blackhearted. The time draws nigh and yet you perform no rites!"


As devSin said, it's probably just a title associatted to her line of work. :)

She got the right to call herself "the Blackhearted" after her 500th post to forums.lordofmurder.net . Back when she was an acolyte, she had to be content with "Amelyssan the Petulant".

Blind as a bat. Didn't even see linky. :)

I'm sure Amelyssan kept that title among her fellow Deathstalkers (which were largely absent from ToB).

I still don't see a link? Maybe in your signature (which I conveniently have disabled)?

Literal-minded translation:

"Okay, people, admit it. Who else copied and pasted, or perhaps typed freehand, 'http://forums.lordofmurder.net' into the address bar of the World Wide Web Hypertext Markup Language browser they choose to use on their personal computer?"

(you can see now how "link" was punchier, if lacking a smidgen of accuracy.)

Oh, DavidW's link.

You've disabused me of the notion that A) Kulyok started the topic (sorry, Domi!), and B) she was talking about her original post.

So what I read at the fourth-grade level. You think you're better than me?! ;)

Thank you. It seems that overoll everyone agrees that the nickname was pre-dating the ToT.
