Something a little different today.

I'm playing Pillars of Eternity at the moment, and of course I was almost halfway through the game before I realised you could import your own portraits. I think I've fainted. The elven portraits in the game are fine, but none of them really fit the character I had in mind and so I had to create my own!

So let's all pretend we are very surprised that Kaana made another red-headed original character and take a look at her Elven ranger. I didn't really plan to make a ranger or an elf, but then the game lured me in with the promise of a wolf companion and elves seemed to be a very natural fit for a ranger, so here we go. Giggle

I tried a different style this time to make her fit in properly with the other portraits in the game, and it was a lot of fun to get her "right".

Nice!  Sounds fun.  I did that with Neverwinter Nights years ago.  Mine wasn't as cool as this tho.

Aye, it's always a lot of fun making and playing with your own custom portraits. The second part for PoE, Deadfire, will launch today, and I cannot wait to fire up this portrait one more time! ;)

Very cool, Kaana and it does fit with the art style of the game. :) I've tried a few times to play PoE but it just doesn't really do it for me. I usually play a human female rogue :D Perhaps PoE II might bet me motivated, haha. So many games so little time!

Thanks! :D

And yes, I can well understand how you feel about PoE. When it first came out I didn't like it at all, and stopped playing after reaching the halfway point. But Deadfire looks like it might be a pretty good game, fixing many problems I had with PoE, and so I thought I'd give it another chance.

And I have to say, I really like it now! Obsidian added quite a few QoL improvements since I last played, and especially combat is a lot less of a drag this time around. It's not one of the best RPGs I've ever played, but still pretty good. Maybe you'd like it better now, too? ;)

You're right Deadfire looks much better. Maybe I should give PoE another go...

I hope you'll have a much better experience this time around, like I did. The lore is really interesting, and after playing PoE I'm really looking forward to see Obsidian build on it with Deadfire!

Looks great hon!  Reminds me of some of the avatars we could use in NWN back in the day :)

Aye, the game is cut from the same old school cloth; so the portraits also look very similar. Which makes it even more shameful that I didn't think of a personal portrait sooner - I had one back during my NWN days, too. :faint:

I'm glad you like it! :glomp:

Thanks! :iconnewglomp: I really hope I'll be able to import her into Pillars of Eternity II, too - I got really used to this portrait. ;)
