Curious about the Strange Old Hermit you meet directly after the avalanche. I think the creators of the game intended you to think he's actually Belhifet spying on you (maybe I read this somewhere). Hence him asking where you are heading, his running down of Kuldahar, and how he just kind of vanishes after dialogue if you walk away from him. Also, if you would happen to attack him, he vanishes magically (via some spell like effect). This along with the fact that he is actually the only live person strolling through the goblin-infested valley. Am I right here? Maybe its obvious to others, still I'm not sure-- Is this revealed somewhere in game that I missed or just something to assume?
