Just wanted to put the image of Pallegina with Josh Sawyer's face in your head.  For my amusement. :devil:

Flintlock, I just want to let you know.  This is absolutely your fault.

Oh dear sweet Jesus mother of Mary, what have I done?  (Bloody good pic though!  Works worryingly well!)

And now we wait

Ah, the waiting game.  I am sure we will know, from the screams that will echo across the world...

That picture  :w00t:

 

If there are some kind of "romances" take a look:

 

Eder and Aloth -- a lot of fan fiction contain them as a love interest (mostly for female Watcher) so no doubt there will be something. They both have Valentine in update.

Pallegina -- I see her only for Godlike Watcher but some people wanted her regardless of it. She has Valentine in update.

Xoti - I think she has good chance for some kind of love theme because of "normal boring human". In case of Pallegina not being available her chances would be higher.

Maia Rua -- well, big yellow sister with a bird could not be interested in "romance" with non-aumaua. Or at all. 

Serafen -- wild orlan pirate and slave. No, I do not suggest BDSM theme here  :shifty:.

Tekehu -- Godlike aumaua, probably Ondra's one. Well, he has his Valentine in update and looks like male Asari  :p Perfect for some (tragic) love theme.

Just a thought for all those who want to bed Pallegina: Josh Sawyer is writing the character.  That means that when she confesses her undying love for you, when it describes her lying you down and having her way with you, that is Josh Sawyer thinking that up and writing it down, describing your favourite sexual fetishes.  You could say that he is cybering with you, and anyone who announces that they romanced Pallegina and enjoyed, he knows what they did. :alienani:

That was just EVIL!  ;(

 

EDIT: and now I saw the pic. **** my stomach hurts xD

Instead of cinematic scenes like some other games, sex should be that storybook thing they did with scripted interactions. With Josh narrariting and supplying the sound effects.

I'm not really convinced that having sex is a good idea in the first place. It tends to cheapen the whole 'romance' thing. Also, it just might remind people of some recent BioWare titles and cause violent projectile vomiting.

Random person of negotiable affections: "I'm a fine-looking strumpet, ain't I?"

Low-Con Watcher: "Argh - my heart!"

Main character has a wild and thoroughly enjoyable fling with a rich and gorgeous floozie (male or female) via scripted interaction, then breaks it off. Ex-lover becomes jealous and hires a cipher to give our protagonist nightmares. These continue to get progressively worse each time our hero returns to the port. Soon the former lover begins to be featured in these nightmares, swearing eternal vengeance in the form of a howling thunderstorm. Our protagonist must either beg for forgiveness and suffer some utter humiliation while serving the ex-lover's whims on a remote island, or spend an enormous sum to hire a cipher assassin who will end the attacks.

My dream idea for romance is a super long and slow build up to it. In PoE1 you were all just friends, lacking any romantic intrest in each other. So, I'd like PoE2 to have just the beginings of a relationship, just the courtship. Then in the inevitable PoE3, we can have a full blown romance, with all the lovey-dovey.

Such a slow build up that you don't even notice it. It was right under your nose the whole time!

 

At least that's what you keep telling yourself.

It always bothered me in Bioware games how quickly the relationships progressed. They usually move from "hi, who might you be?" to "let's go make kissy-faces" in less than a couple dozen lines of dialogue. It always made the relationships feel forced, shallow and cheap. Then again, their decisions for making romances are made in the faceless-men with suitcases department, so it isn't that surprising.

 

So hell yeah for a more natural and gradually developing relationship. If the game manages to make me care about a character, *then* it has my blessing on introducing the possibility for a romance, not before. Too bad about Pallegina though, she was such a promising character, had all the right little nuances, but I don't think I can ever unsee that Joshugina picture. Seriously people, have some shame, I don't think that character will ever recover from that xD

Billion Dollar Idea: your character takes some weird drugs, and starts having weird hallucinations and sees "Joshugina" and your character freaks out.
"Who are you?
"Huh? Me? I'm Josh."
"Where is Pallegnia?"
"She's here. In my head. Or am I in hers?"
"What?"
"I am her father."
And then your character passes out

If you believe the rumors about romance in PoE2, they're just joshing you...

Have an option to romance the Grieving Mother, and your companions will start making fun of you for having an imaginary girlfriend. :D
