After TOB–Life continues for the BG2 Characters.
« on: February 04, 2005, 03:39:13 AM »
After TOB–Life continues for the BG2 Characters. What have you done with your comrades?

I want to say up front, before anything else that this is NOT an advertisement for another game. 

After playing Bg2 for three months (on the ceiling) I decided I wanted my companions to continue their lives and follow a story of my own.  So I recreated them as best  as I could(working with only one hand) and the pictures below is the result.  I was very limited with what I could do for the characters.  I created and  re-colored the hair, beard, skin and clothing, but the program I am using has a lot of restrictions.

For a fun thing to do and before I post anything more, why don’t you try to identify these TOB characters, as well as the famous mod characters we all have played.


I will identify the first character for you.

  What have you done with your comrades?

  still haven't wrapped it up (even have three separate games at the final save), but the idea always intrigues me, in any game with parties of chars.

 anything to help you pass the time.  :)  can PPG expect a prompt report of a successful operation?

         2.  aerie?
     3.  anomen, or young/rejuvenated keldorn? (i would guess anomen except for 4)
        4   anomen?  although sorta puts me in mind of khelben for some reason.
        5  immy, i hope.
         6  kelsey?  (and how much is mr. fain going to appreciate their breakfast habits? ;))
          7  minsc
           8  nalia?  i feel like i'm forgetting somebody now.  are all of these joinables?
      9  keldorn?  that's fantastic/hilarious.  now somebody will put me to shame by naming wife and daughters without having to look them up. :P
       10  another aerie, or perhaps jaheira?
          11  another imoen? now i really feel like i'm forgetting someone... melissan?
        12  viconia (real toughy there... unless it's sendai?)
           13  keto?
         14  cernd, with who i like to call "the Deril Changeling".
      15   sarevok.  nice.  a bit pitchblackvindieselesque, but nice.  :)
      16  valygar
    17  solaufein?

  *drifts happily*
  if i were a producer i would back 'real world: athkatla' 100%.  and make sure it didn't compete with arrested development.  (or drawn together if they'd actually make more of an effort towards new episodes.)
  actually, 'real world: durlag's tower' would be preferable.   :pirate
  i have despised and shunned all "reality tv" from the get-go.  but those offshoots that thoroughly, actively distance and absurdify?  i'm a colossal fan.
 
  @initial visual associations - first i thought of morrowind, then sims2.
  and now i want my 5-yrs-late ultima ascension update to hurry up and arrive...

Sims for BG2.  :D
I agree with Regullus, except for
2. Jaheira
3. Anomen - he looks good in red.
4. Jan - assuming he is meant to be shorter.
10.Aerie

I hope for your next period of recovery you get an even better program. Kelsey's and PC's kids?

I'm with Regullus on 2 vs. 10 (2 has more of a youthful Aerieish look.)

But I think 3 is Anomen and 4 Edwin.

These are quite neat. I'd welcome seeing more.

Is that The Sims, or something?  And who knew Sarevok had such a hairy chest.

I'm surprised no one has commented on the culinary choice of Family Coltrane.

  Perhaps a touch of a spoilsport.  ;)

 I have to say I was stumped by the Anomen/Ediwin pictures. Edwin's picture looks like the classical romantic lead, and Anomen looks like the classic boy next door. In (hopefully) future posts Moinesse will change file names to BG 1 - 17.

That's why I thought it was Jan. He became very respectable post-TOB, but I imagine not less flamboyant. And I always thought that Edwin became a woman.  ;D
