If you could be any creation, what would you be.

I forgot to add serviles, sorry.

Mixture?  WTF?!

I'd be a gazer, because they have my favourite attack.  Many's the time I've wanted to be able to cast a kill spell IRL.

I wish I had voted for mixture instead of fyora. I always have to think about it--fyora or cryoa? Fyora or cryoa? If I could switch breath attacks at will, well, that would be pretty handy.

Dikiyoba is in no doubt about which graphic, though. The new one. Looking mean and nasty is always better than looking sort of cute.

Edit: Typo.

Fyora of course. Well, Cryoa to be exact. That'd be really cool. I'd go with the old graphic though.

Actually, yes.
All you have to do is do to data and change your pc graphics to drakon.
But I don't exactly know how.

Well, it's probably possible. I managed to turn my PC into a fyora (color-shifted green to take care of those fyora vs. cryoa issues) in G1, at least, at the expense of ever equipping a sword or baton and of the plot making any sense whatsoever. And G1 had the advantage of your PC being the only one to use that section of script, so that would be an additional thing to deal with in G4.

On the other hand, Dikiyoba believes there is one good thing about this idea. Since the modified character is basically useless in battle, modifying the lifecrafter is the best choice, therefore taking care of the whole pants issue.

Yes, you can change any of the PC graphics into any of the other ones. Just don't try the Creator or Turret graphics, or the game will freeze and quit.

Servile. I'm rather fond of opposable thumbs.

—Alorael, who actually gets the feeling that drakons and possibly drayks have thumbs too. It's hard to run a lab without hands, and after all this self-shaping they'd probably get around to improved digits eventually.

Why would you want to be a servile?  They're just like humans... only worse.

Drayks and drakons do have thumbs.  You can see them pretty clearly.

Wingbolts, for sheer coolness factor. Although realistically, probably a drayk, unless someone was silly enough to try to make talking wingbolts. I can live without thumbs, but gotta be able to talk!

The old graphics were so much cooler. But I'd prefer a fyora.

The game often says that the rebels hide in caves so as not to be spotted by creations that fly through the skies.  They are probably refering to wingbolts.

If I absolutely had to be a worthless creation, I'd probably go with servant mind, one of the minds with Shaftoe.  They make creations and put up a fairly good fight.
You lose.

Anyone think that Drakonssss can fly?
Or Drayks? the wings aren't there for nothing,right?
And we Drakonss are not stupid...we are just...mentally disturbed.
And if we are so stupid,how could be have created the truly beautiful Unbound?

I do not see cryodrayks making any thing...

I do remember one of the G3 loading screens was a drayk, and that it described its wings as vestigial, so that's a no. There might have been something in G2 about drakons flying, but given that I don't remember anything about them flying in G4, I don't think they can. Certainly not when you consider how tiny their wings are compared to their size and weight.

See, whenever the game doesn't specify a specific creation to fill these roles, I just assume it's some tiny creation the PC never learns to make. Why use a wingbolt, which is easy to spot and hard to make, when you could make something smaller, like a bird or even a mini-wingbolt?

Dikiyoba has absolutely no proof of that, though.

Except in this case, the game does specify a creation. I'm pretty sure that when you meet Greta in Aziraph Rebel Camp, she mentions that she was spotted and attacked by a Wingbolt patrol flying overhead.

The Geneforge III endings have pictures of the destruction being caused by the Rebellion.  There are creatures that look vaguely like drakons flying above the ruins in those pictures.

Vestigal...sounds familiar...what does it mean?
maybe the wings are for gliding from a cliff or something?  or flying short distances maybe.
or they might have wings similar to a hummingbird...flapping so fast that they probably could support all that weight and fly for a while?
