The Fae all have stupid hair.

I mean maybe they were going for a bit of that Charles Vess look. It works when he does it. But here, it's just solid pieces of plastic off of offbrand Troll Doll knockoffs. And it's really getting distracting.

Also, House of Ballads spoilers:

Spoiler:
It turns out the House of Ballads is just a bunch of supernatural LARPers. Yeah they do real combat with real weapons and magic. But they're still LARPing.

Throwing chakrams is fun though.

Still, this game has mainly made me wish there was an equivalent for World of Warcraft*, especially considering that that game's look is pretty much lifted wholesale here.

*albiet a hell of a lot more refined


Got it for the wife for her birthday - she loves it.

I wish I'd gotten her the Collector's Edition though. She wanted the troll statue and the dice and dice bag.

(...which is yet another reason why I love her.)

Alas, I found out about it long after they'd sold out completely.


With the studio closed due to chapter 11, does anyone know if the DLC Legends of Dead Kell and Teeth of Naros can still be purchased and received?

Everything's still up on Steam.

Heck, the whole look-and-feel is pretty stupid. If you're prepared to accept swords so ridiculously large that they would be far too heavy to lift, it seems a bit harsh to cavill at characters who look like something out of 1950s hairspray commercials.


I watch a lot of anime and that hair even bothers me.

On other notes the game did get my wife into WoW and I am throughly enjoying our time together there.

As to the game I give overall a 7/10.

The Fae are supposed to be alien to human ways of thinking--why not reflect it in their appearance? (anyone remember Londo's hair on B5?)
