With astarion it’s very obvious that larian try’s hard to make some interesting characters. But it shows also that they are no passionate DnD fans.
Compare astarion with hexat the vampire rogue from bg2 (Charakter designed by beamdog). Vampire rogue but has to wear a magic cloak in daylight and totally sucks during day (stats and skills). But when the sun goes down.... holy shit.
That’s how it should be made.
hehe, without a day/night cycle you can't have that
Good thing the Tadpole allows our Vampire-Spawn to run around in sunlight!
