I think we forgot the most important one. You know what it is.

A lot of hatred and sexyness in one simple weapon.

Turning this thread into a discussion of Second World War weapons is not a great idea and will have terrible consequences.

Watching me turn into a frothing fan-boi history nerd boring the arse off the rest of the forum community being one of them. Aside from anything else, at some point tanks will come into the discussion and then you might as well all just call it a night.

agree that this game needs more guns, and killstreaks + carepackages imo

Precisely. Is it too much to ask that there are a few AR-15s on the nautiloid?

I have an MG42 lying around somewhere. It's actually an incredibly horrible weapon: probably the most ergonomically nasty thing I've encountered.

Right, it's Friday - time to log off the old office comp and check Larian forums for a shot of high-brow word porn. Let's see, what have we got - something, something, something, 'sexy weapons'.

Ok: *click*

Ahhhh... All right, probably everyone here is talking about the whips and so on. But that's some good succubi art. Am I the only one that thinks so? Are there succubi in Forgotten Realms? *googles* Nice.

Ok, this actually has me again thinking of the devil character in BG3, which I felt was pretty weak. If you google forgotten realms devils and read the description, it's actually pretty shrewd character study. See the description under 'hierarchy'. Brilliant. I work with these types every day in the office.

They say the vast majority of CEOs are sociopaths: charismatic, compelling, intelligent, socially savvy - but all they want is your soul. Your chosen profession, in other words, and how it makes the devil/CEO richer.

I think they reveal the devil's form too early. I like the painting behind him, but the camera focuses too lovingly on it. I think the whole scene would be much more powerful if it was wink, wink, nudge, nudge that the guy is a devil, but he stays in bland human form like Gunter O'Dimm from The Witcher 3.

It would be interesting if he was some low class devil trying to move up the ranks and he resentfully targets you, another lowlife in a bad situation. But he's your friend, he's your pal. He definitely doesn't try and come off as smarter than you - the most charismatic people let you think you're both on the same level: you're allies, you're fighting the same war etc.

Then the interesting part is how they're actually just using you to get a 'leg up'
.
Anyway, that's just my two cents.

Just one more option for the wishspell. Not that ergonomic, sadly. Too much ammo to carry around. I will follow the advice of not going into details though. Some of the more exotic weapons would be awesome though. Those listed before on this thread and others. Humanity invented some crazy shit to kill each other.

forget about tanks. Considering the dimension travel capability of the nautiloid, I expect nothing less than having access to the U.S.S Discovery,, including its full crew and weaponry.

I think your first photo is actually the tanto dagger.

I've never been a huge fan of Japanese weaponry. I was playing RPGs in the early/mid 80s when all things Japanese seemed to be the new wave of 'cool', and never got the same feeling of excitement that others seemed to share. Katanas and ninja still leave me cold, I'm afraid.

I did venture into a fantasy Chinese campaign and weaponry, however, and have a strong affection some of the Chinese weapons. For some reason they don't appear on the radar much in the West, certainly nothing like as much as Japanese weapons.

I've never understood where to draw the line between japanese and chinese weaponry myself. It seems to me that many attribute japanese weapons as those used by the samurai, the soldiers, and more ninja-esque weapons as chinese, used by monks and spies. But both China and Japan used soldiers and spies and there are striking simularities between the countries weaponry. After all, they are neighbours smile

If Larian will implement east asian weaponry though, I really want to see wind and fire wheels. Those are strictly chinese. And, unlike chakrams, they were not throwned weapons so easier to animate smile

Whips should be in the game. Succubi and lolth priestesses are very found of them.
