    I'm trying to be as civil as possible dude.

    I know you didn't mean it as such, but it's kind of annoying when someone starts piping up that they "just don't get it" about something that is clearly just not for them.

    You won't see me talking about how I just can't understand why people are attracted to vagina, even though I have zero use for vagina.

    Because it's unnecessary. And defending it with allusions to your (I'm guessing very limited, and unsatisfying) personal gay experiences is rather passive aggressive.

    passive agressive what now?

    but anyway

    it's like people not liking achewood

    people mention it every time achewood is brought up

    but anyway you said that jacob's ass was fine and I said no male asses don't appeal to me at all

    for me they seem so tacked on

    on women it complements the rest of the shapes around that area

    on men it's just sort of there

    men's upper bodies can be appealing but the ass I just don't get

    the ass specifically

    I like it! Is the PC one of the mercs, in your view? Because I'm thinking maybe they pick up a front man along the way to do most of the talking, since they're largely not good at that, except for intimidation. They need someone clean and presentable to make connections?

    ohhh yeah

    the PC could be a courtier somewhere

    a talking dude or woman

    great idea

    I don't get the appeal of wrestling another guy onto the mat so you can gently caress his foot while you moan in ecstasy.


    No.



    Wait.



    I may be seeing the appeal now.

    I feel like starting wrestling now.

    seriously though organichu you should probably apply some sort of balm to your face

    aloe vera, some kind of petro jelly maybe, whatevs

    anything that retains moisture in your skin, so an ice pack may feel good but it's not ideal

    courtier sounds more like something the player could eventually work their way to becoming - if, say, they're working to better the feudal states position.

    courtier somewhere that just went tits up

    but maybe not a courtier specifically

    someone whos neither feudal nor merchant

    religious, duh, obvious choice

    the player works for or is some religious dude

    EDIT: Or maybe a foreigner

    Aha! Mercs get paid at the court for eliminating a group of bandits, and figure out along the way that this duchy is about to get overthrown. PC is being treated shittily (which is part of why the duke's in trouble) and asks to come along when he/she sees them leaving. They see the opportunity, and agree to take him/her along. They level automatically with one weapon style, and you choose either one to be good at or a few to be okay with, plus points for conversational skills.

    Maybe three mercs (though not tank/DPS/healer because that's cliched) and another NPC or two to fill the gaps? And as you progress in building your network, you send envoys to other powers to strengthen those alliances.

    I'm trying to find something along the lines of diplomatic rank, or hierarchies of ambassadors, but I'm not having much luck. Along the idea of 'leveling up' - consul, for a foreigner; bishop-advocate for a religious?

    Eh, maybe, but Jack Bauer isn't going to make a good ambassador no matter how much you polish him. It's just not his style.

    I'd not like tank DPS healer

    I'd like something a bit more original in the way of combat system

    but anyway

    yeeeess

    main point of the game is political intrigue

    sometimes achieved through talking, sometime through more... creative means. For example killing people or fucking shit up and saying the enemy did it or threatening people or whatever.

    you have wit and cunning and might at your disposal, and you can employ them as morally or amorally as you like

    for example, craftily gain the gratitude of some dude who's the key to gaining influence with the local merchant's guild

    or kill his son and kidnap his daughter

    Harrum: ME2-style recruitment quests for ambassadors to major powers, with optional loyalty-quest analogues to improve it? Also, I'm surprisingly kind of feeling like none of the mercs should be a romance option. One female and one male additional NPC, maybe, for that, but they also need to be critical parts of the story.

    yeah. that's always fun.

    also it would be fun if appearance and impression on people is a big deal

    like, some huge gruff dude in armor with a sword will frigthen people appropriately

    but a guy in shiny armor and lovely tabard might strike people as a noble knight

    one or the other might work
