Well-Actually War Trall Delicious Vlish Posted May 12, 2007 Share Posted May 12, 2007 After having played through the game a couple of times now, and having a bit of extra time, I have decided to take up a challenge. I am going to run a warrior through. He will be pro-shaper. He will never use canisters. Unfortunately, he will be forced to use the geneforge... Which is why he will be anti canister and pro-shaper. I have not decided if he will betray the shapers in the end for another sect. He will play with honour, roleplayed as a sort of knight errant. Battle magic will be disdained. Icy crystals, spray crystals, wands, everything like that, full of bad juju. Swords and batons will be his main weapons, typically swords. Shaping will be allowed, although he will never add to his own shaping skills. Blessing magic will be limited, achieved though items, to allow him to give 'commands' to his army. Captain's Shiv and other items will be hoarded to this end. I will be full clearing as much as possible. While I intend to have high mechanics and leadership, and I might work around some nasty areas, I will go back and clear that area of rogues eventually. Everything must be slain with thorns and steel. One on one brutal toe to toe combat. With no battle magic or canned battle magic. And this will be on torment. Healing magic will be completely unrestricted. A good leader and a wise knight is well versed in medicine and anatomy... And I fully intend to care for my charges with the best care available. While I plan to be pro-shaper, any creation in my care will not die from neglect or poor treatment on the battlefield. I plan to experiment with vampiric items, and the first ethereal bindings I get will go in to the oozing sword. Oh, and that is the last finishing twist. Every named sword in the game, from the Stunning Blade to Tek's Spectral Dirk, every special unique sword that I find will be hoarded, not sold. And at first chance, will be escorted to an anvil, where I will place an enchantment of my choosing in to the blade, and then that blade will be used in a duel with a worthy foe... Hopefully a tough somewhat unique creation or enemy. For example, the maddened dryak in the early part of the game could be killed with the Stunning Blade after I find something to upgrade it with. Then there is Krazo. There is no shortage of worthy foes to test my mettle against. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
