My issue with the portraits, and a suggestion how to "fix" it

Recommended Posts

Portraits have irked me ever since the original Baldur's Gate, for the obvious reason that they never really fit your character.


Unfortunately, PoE exacerbates this problem by providing a customizable 3D character doll, which adds more details for the portraits to clash with.


To scratch that itch, I suggest to get rid of the player character portrait altogether. Provide customized portraits for the pre-made companions, but replace the "player character" portrait with a symbol, or possibly a mugshot taken from the doll. (The latter variant would also work for player-generated parties à la Icewind Dale).
