OK. Just a short rant really. The following, in my mind, is a terrible design choice.
If you kill Vanya Shah and then call Rangan as the Kashmirian, he’ll head to his meeting with the Maelstrom on the barge, but if you intercept the Maelstrom and kill / knock him out before he gets to the barge, Rangan will just magically know that “the meeting is off” and instantly turn back up stairs.
Why? (Dear Lord why?!!!) Just have him go to the barge, wait a minute and then go back up. It’s stuff like this that makes me rage quit a playthrough. I had a plan for getting him alone on the barge, but I guess it’s impossible because reasons.
