Gay pride characters!


But then, also the female version.

Somehow I don't think combat-boots are obvously good. And besides, not all good people are gay. Female characters could be fairies!

P.S. I realise the "combat-boots" reference is a bad stereotype and I know that it is not general true (just covering my [nocando]).

Any words in the forum's list of swear words get replaced with [nocando]. This reduces profanity, but means you can not describe a bas.tard sword without deliberately miss-spelling it.

How come they have a little alien smiley face with its middle fingers raised (obviously a f-ck you gesture) but they have the censorship filters on?

The question is, how well this will be implemented.

Again, idea was to make character's actions influence his overall look (i.e. outfit, auras).
Sure, developer can make lawful-good characters look like a pokemons (or gays if you want Handefood), with stupid cartoonish auras, ha another example - asterix & obelix <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />. And I don't want this to happend ,period.

But, provided developer puts some serious efforts, creativity, design into making these changes remarkable - characters may really look awesome whether being evil or good, mages or warriors.


PS BTW what are combat-boots ?

Search me.

Oh, by the way, speaking of the female version, it made me think of this, for some reason. *snerk*

Heheh, saw that on a thread in the Interplay community forums. Yeah, the female characters (except for mage) look pretty risque when naked. But they're naked... When fully equipped in plate armor, plate leggings, etc. they look damned dangerous. The male warrior is almost totally topless when naked, too... but that's another story. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I think alignment would definitely help DD a lot, but it would also make it too similar to D&D. Maybe a different alignment system should be put into place, like instead of "lawful good" you have the "knighthood" alignment, which would be difficult to obtain. Instead of "chaotic neutral" you have the "selfish bas-tard" alignment, with all the appropriate descriptions therein. Something like that would be interesting.

As for appearances, the more options the better. I always wanted to see wings on my character especially after she attained godhood. I also wanted to see glowing swords, or at least colorful swords like those death knights have. More = better.

Stereotypical militant lesbians wear combat-boots, have deep voices, and hate all men.

That reminds me, what was up with the voice of the female warrior in DD? I stopped playing her because it just got on my nerves. The female mage voice was too snooty for me, so I generally stick with the survivor, who sounds pretty good. Yes, I'm anal about voices.

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/offtopic.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" />How would you tell the difference between Chaotic Good <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/suspicion.gif" alt="" />and Chaotic Neutral? The pains of straying of the path of ones alignment but to find one's self again? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> What if your on the borderline of both Chaotic Good and Chaotic Neutral? What then? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ouch.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> Is alignment not how society as a whole views an individual?

Unless DD goes with a 3d engine their "custom" looks department is always gonna be a little bit smaller I think. (DD2 isn't planned as 3d is it, I've just seen rift runner ss that obviously weren't 3d? Frankly I hate the look of 3d engine rpgs anyway, except morrowind) I may be mistaken here, but I've heard that it's just too difficult to build a vast variety of "looks" with a 2d engine, because every frame of animation has to be drawn. (whereas 3d objects can just be shaped out of a few polygons, textured, and attached to your char model).

In Project Ego, the appearance changes according to many things. Read the post here and follow the link: it's simply amazing, even if it's for Xbox.

Project Ego which is Peter Molyneux(sorry can't remember the spelling)'s work? personality that changes the appearance of a character has happened in Black & White which is also from the same guy. if we're not going to zoom all the way to first person mode, then i don't see much point other than just looking good/bad. but then some of us like things that way..... .

Yikes! sorry Egin, i forgot that u have mentioned B&W.
