I mean, who would want to keep such a horribly looking companion?

Make him a young bald female monk if you want to create an original NPC companion but for the love of god take this old peasant away. Thank you.

 

p.s. Oh, and the slippers.

As long as he has an interesting personality and doesn't look like Random NPC #23, I couldn't care less...

To a start I was all against Forton, then he grew on me and I'm not sure why. There is wisdom, and concern, in his eyes. He could just be an emotionless master assassin as well *shrug*

 

EDIT: Resolute.

You know nothing about the character other than what he looks, and in a concept sketch at that. How can you say anything at all?

I posted in the original Update thread containing his concept art that I'm pleased there's an older character.

 

And in fact, I want him to speak in fables and allegorical riddles. Possibly like a tripped out, partially stoned Yoda.

The KS Collector's Edition does not include the Collector's Book.

Which game hook brought you to Project Eternity and interests you the most?

PE will not have co-op/multiplayer, console, or tablet support (sources): [0] [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]

Write your own romance mods because there won't be any in PE.

One thing is an older badass, another thing is an elderly weaksause. Forton is the later. Har! Just look at his sorry face

 

Edair looks older as well, but he actually looks older in a 'competent, world weary' way to me. I like having older characters in games, especially as I get older myself, just not ones that look like Forton...

You can look at his picture and deduce his stance. Pictures speaks more than a thousand words. If you look at Forton, how do you imagine him being? Let's say... make up a character, personality and appearance, how would Forton and this characters relationship be? What would Forton have to say to you, based on what he looks like in the picture?

 

EDIT: Thanks Dr. Explosion. Imma go play with Photoshop now <3 (inspired)

It's the hair, isn't it? I agree.

 

Here's my rendition of a better Forton (feel free to use this for the final game Obsidian)

Yeah, that's much more better.

 

Is it just me, or does he look like someone who'd use the phrase "cowabunga, dudes"?

I'm ok with Forton. The idea of an elderly yet still hard as nails kung-fu master is cool to me. I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of his concept art but that's just my personal preference in art not because he's 'ugly' or anything like that. I kind of consider him to be the Heihachi of this game he just needs to get that hair sticking straight up rather than leaving it down.

 

Edit: I guess he'd need a bad ass mustache as well to pull of the Heihachi look.

K is for Kid, a guy or gal just like you. Don't be in such a hurry to grow up, since there's nothin' a kid can't do.

it isn't possible to get more stoned than Yoda, hell the man is so out of his mind he can't speak sentences in proper order
