I've gone and REMASTERED all of my old Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic inspired minifigs in FULL HD! Check 'em out:

The "Revan" is based on the appearance of my KotOR protagonist when I first played the game, all those years ago. Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO later based Revan's "canon" face on the same one I chose, so it works, right? Not that I care about canon anyway. What they did with Revan in SW:TOR was really sad. Really wish we had gotten a KOTOR3 instead...

 

Anyway, enjoy!




#489057 Scorp's RPG Corner - now reaching The Outer Worlds

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 03 November 2019 - 05:47 PM

I've been going in blind for my first playthrough. Refuse to read anything about the game or look anything up. Making decisions based on my gut and what seems like a good balance between doing what's right and getting fairly compensated. I was planning to play a Firefly-style outlaw with a heart of gold but "a powerful need to eat sometime this month." :P But so far I've ended up leaning a little bit toward appeasing the corporations in many of the conflicts. Or at least not openly rebelling against them. Wonder if the game will let me continue walking the line...

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 02 November 2019 - 11:30 AM

I've been having the same problem with the game being WAY too easy. I started the game in Supernova mode because I enjoyed the survival mode in Fallout New Vegas a lot... but I found the inability to save my game extremely frustrating, so I switched to Hard mode. And ever since then, the game has been an absolute BREEZE. And this is on a talky character with most points invested into Speech and Tech skills, barely any into guns. Occasionally a fight will be prolonged due to an HP bloated enemy or two, but it's not really hard, just slow.

 

Still, I've been enjoying the game so far... but it certainly hasn't blown me away. Straight off, I'm just not a fan of the setting and visual style. Don't get me wrong, Fallout combined with Firefly sounds like pure heaven to me, but I find the art style ugly and garish, and the writing is so comical it's hard to take anything seriously. I'm still waiting to run into a quest with some real OOMPH to it. One where crap really hits the fan, and something big explodes based on the decision you make. But I'm taking my sweet time, so maybe I just haven't gotten there yet.

Thanks for keeping my thread updated better than I do, Nightstalker! :D
And for keeping me drawing too! I'd probably be way out of practice by now if not for you, haha.

And now, it's that time of the year again...
INKTOBER DUMP!

Pretty badass stuff lately! The angels are awesome, and I love the Jabberwock, but I'd have to say the best one is that dragon vs. hydra. Good perspective, and the hydra looks great.

#488745 Official Wulfgard Q&A Topic

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 17 June 2019 - 03:02 PM

Quick question. Not that I am gonna use it for Wulfgard purposes or so. But is there someone that can shapeshift from a human into a dragon, or a dragon into a human? I know there are dragons and shapeshifters, but just curious about this option, even if its too extreme for this setting.

 

 
I'm not sure I understand. Not going to use it for Wulfgard? So, is this a Wulfgard question or a general mythology/folklore question? Since this is the place for Wulfgard questions, I will answer it in our universe:
 
There are many tales of dragons taking human form, or even of other beings such as dwarves turning into dragons permanently due the possession of cursed artifacts, etc., most famously in the case of Fafnir. Some families claim dragon blood in their heritage, citing stories such as these about their ancestors. The truth of these accounts is widely disputed, but since most dragons possess a great deal of mastery over magic, it's certainly possible that they might take on another form, either through an illusion or physical shapeshifting. Tales speak of ancient dragons taking the form of high elves and becoming great leaders among their kind, preferring to interact with the Alfar over the shorter-lived and less magically-inclined humans. They say a green dragon lives in elf form in Mímisholt with the ljosalfar, and a silver dragon rules the mythical city of Voc, high in the Jagged Edge. If any live among men, they do a good job of hiding it.

Posted by Saber-Scorpion on 06 June 2019 - 01:20 PM

Part of me is dumbfounded that we're actually getting a Baldur's Gate 3, after all this time and three canceled projects later. The other part of me is already tempering my expectations. It's not the original team (goes without saying), no Infinity Engine (odds of that happening are astronomical), 5E ruleset, likely that no characters from the original series show up unless The Sundering plays with some things, and likely a new battle system that isn't Real-time w/ Pause. Co-op is a good thing though.

 

So... probably not really Baldur's Gate 3 then. :P Probably just a random new D&D 5e (ugh) game using the Baldur's Gate name for nostalgia bux. Yeah, I know Baldur's Gate is a city in the forgotten realms, but no one buys a game called "Baldur's Gate" because they're such a big fan of that fictional city, lol.

 

I think Larian are great - I love Divinity: Original Sin - but I can't help being pessimistic about the idea that anyone could revive the true spirit of the BG series. Closest new game I've played to the feel of the original engine is Pathfinder: Kingmaker, by Owlcat. But I'm not sure either Owlcat or Larian has the writing chops to come up with a good enough story. Still, I'm glad it's Larian and not Beamdog.

 

As for old characters showing up, they might bring back Minsc through some gimmick or other, since he's shown up in some recent comics and games.
