You know so far, this game went from "uh?" to "hummm Ele Whu?" to "O rly?" to "Oh ReAlly?" to "Oh, really?" to "Oh. Really." and finaly to "Buy."
I rarely like fantasy races, the witcher did them quite well though (everyones an asshole, just like in real life - much more believable). I've seen quite enough 'pixies' and 'gnomes' that arn't dead (and you can't kill!!). So Im glad this game wont start out down that lane (right?? RIGHT?).
I awalys think that everyone overestimates how nice each other is in these fantasy games. The truth is the dragons would have been extinct as soon as they came into contant with humans because dragon horn would be used by apothocarys to create vials of strange smelling liquids that - when ingested - is rumoured to lengthen and strengthen. If you get my meaning.
Still I LIKE all the classic fantasy architypes but I always think "childrens fairy tale" not "could be real!".
Which is quite diffrent from sci-fi where it usually is all about how evil people are. Colony wars, genocide, exnophobia etc etc.
