I think I’ll play some SWTOR
No full goatee in the Neverwinter character creator, and the scar/hair part is on the opposite side with the other. Apart from that… well, this has been your “the Neverwinter CC is solid” post.
Oh, hi, Cliff from Veronica Mars. What you doing in Hobgoblins? I still love you. It kind of makes you even more awesome if that were possible.
Wait… what?? Someone from Hobgoblins besides “Zed” in Pulp Fiction had a career before/after Hobgoblins?
He was also the guy on Party Down who tried to scam investors and held a gun on Ron:
So I went to his IMDB and…
He’s frigging GAULT in STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC
WHY DIDN’T YOU EVER TELL ME YOU USED TO WORK AT CLUB SCUM, GAULT?!
Torian’s pretty comfortable sobbing in the corner anyway.
While I’m not arbitrarily opposed to the idea of throwing my protagonist into a M/M romance… there hasn’t been a male romance option to “do it for me” yet.
Varric could have been, alas…
Finally got around to posting some images of my main, a bounty hunter (Mercenary) named Rayin like all my other primary characters in RPGs since Star Wars Galaxies, ironically.
He’s currently sitting at L45 as my crippling alt-itis means I’ve got characters all over the place - my Sith Warrior I posted last week is L27, for example - and still working on finishing Voss. Because Sith corruption on a non-Sith genuinely annoys the hell out of me, the fact Rayin is Dark V isn’t immediately obvious in these screenshots. This guy is all about the credits and is aggressively misanthropic, which on more than one occasion has led poor Mako to say things like, “You’re a monster” and “I think I’m going to be sick.” Good thing that girl likes her cheap, shiny trinkets!
Wish I had more action shots, but I only started taking screenshots of my characters. Story wise, I don’t actually find bounty hunter all that entertaining. It’s a bit too episodic, but given the nature of the profession I’m not sure what else they could have done. You get a couple bounties, you kill them, get a couple more, you kill them… etc. The story finally had an interesting turn that made me go, “Ooh, I wonder what’s going to happen now!” at, well, L45 on Voss. The rest, while fun in parts, was predictable and more than a bit repetitive. Not so, I hear, for the other classes in the Empire.
Still the sheer damage this guy puts out with a near-full Arsenal build is obscene, making leveling - when I focus on it - pretty quick and easy. Plus bounty hunters definitely get the best (mechanically) companion in the game, and they get her first. A lot of other classes have to wait for a healbot, not us! We also get Blizz, a fucking Jawa who is awesome. So I’d say the deficiencies in the story when compared to the other classes are more than balanced by the rest of the game.
The alt I’m playing the most now.
Rana and her hilarious “heavy armor.” Always liked the combination of that hair and scar.
It’s fun playing a Light side Sith, because they seem to come off as being less about ideology (the Sith code and whatnot, complete with their obsession with malice and violence) and more about getting the best, most reasonable result with the least amount of risk.
