Designer Rambling: Character List


Recommended Posts

By now, I've gotten some lists from fans as to the number and types of characters that have been mentioned in various interviews.

 

Just some designer ramblings:

 

1. You're probably already aware of this, but depending on whether you go light side or dark side, your companion selection changes.

 

2. The same thing is true with your PC's gender.

 

3. In addition, not only will you have the companions, but there will be points in the game where you even switch off to NPCs who are not in your party to accomplish various tasks, just for variety. So technically, you end up having a pretty large selection at different points in the game.

 

Some of these things we did to seperate the gameplay experience for male, female, dark and light for replayability, other times we did it because it felt right to do in the situation.

 

Hope you guys enjoy the game when it hits the shelves.

OOoooooOOOOh.

 

I like that.

I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you

But I get the feeling that you don't like it

What's with all the screaming?

You like monkeys, you like ponies

Maybe you don't like monsters so much

Maybe I used too many monkeys

Isn't it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

The bolded word is the key for me. I'm glad Obsidian has made sure to improve upon this. So far, I'm liking what I'm hearing.

"Console exclusive is two words Darque." - Nartwak (in response to Darque's observation)

I'm always a sucker for a well thought out game

People laugh when I say that I think a jellyfish is one of the most beautiful things in the world. What they don't understand is, I mean a jellyfish with long, blond hair.

Sounds really interesting and original! Thanks for the info! :thumbsup:

Nur Ab Sal was one such king. He it was, say the wise men of Egypt, who first put men in the colossus, making many freaks

of nature at times when the celestial spheres were well aligned.

So the PC's gender can change depending on whether we go light side or dark side?

Yes, that's always a risk. You see, Palpatine was a little nice girl before she uncovered the secrets of the dark side. :ph34r:

So are you saying, whether we are male or female depends on which party members join?

hopefully that does not mean that actually we has a pretty small selection of npcs. the "technically" modifier does scare Gromnir somewhat. regardless, we will be getting the game so we will very shortly be able to answer our own questions.

 

HA! Good Fun!
