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'.
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.
