If you allow yourself 50 seconds for each one, and don't stop until this time tomorrow, you will be done ;)

OK, I have to ask, is the Boxing Glove supposed to be a bag that the character is carrying? In that case, how can I hold my shield? I always assumed he had a trans-dimensional bag-of-holding or something for the massive inventory I carry around.
I totally support the female avatar. I also support removing the boxing glove. I also support having the avatar change depending on what kind of weapon you are holding so I'm not always wielding a two-handed greatsword as large as me, but that's a LOT more work.

As a side note, I'd like to say that I'm reasonably happy with the number of strong women in the game who are main quest givers or soldiers. A lot of games have serious problems with this, and it is clear to me that you guys have put some significant effort into making sure that women give quests that aren't just "Go find my husband". Credit where it is due: Minarra, Aulowenn, the weapons trainer in Blackwater, Maevalia, etc. are great. Good job guys for being aware of that. Could probably use more, but still.

:roll: And here I figured no one would bother commenting on the boxing glove since that topic has been commented on in every conceivable way.
Truth is Kashim, your limitless inventory is only possible by the magic of Dedevteam. Their existence is known only to Elythara and Kazaul. ;)
But if you want to do something about the massive amounts of stuff you're carrying... there are containers...

I'm unable to claim I know for sure as I was not on board when these characters were added, but I like to believe the guys HAD TO do that because the ladies of the community would hunt them down and skin them alive if they hadn't :lol: :lol: :lol:

Lol I don't recall there being specific complaints on the board, but it does seem true that Crossglen and Fallhaven, the oldest parts of the game world, don't have any of those strong female characters. Even in Vilegard, though two of the three trust-building quests for "important people" are for women, one is a forlorn mom, and the other just needs some potions.

The Crossroads Guardhouse is the earliest addition that I can think of that does, with the soldier in the tower and the thief below.

We're talking about adding some lower level quests in the starting areas- maybe we should look into this angle more as we develop them. Nyktos?

i was thinking of expanding upon the issue with Ogam in Crossglen...

the husband is missing & you have a choice to rat him out - to his wife.

he must be up to something, all hidden in the corner over there... :shock:
not only will we have a strong woman in the game early,

but also something curious & peculiar to interest the player - right away.

Do you think he's sneaking off to feed his bonemeal habit? :shock: :lol:
