Just curious what players tend to want with a female CHARNAME and an NPC male?

Anything that you all don't like?  Would a romance similar to Aerie where she becomes pregnant near the end of ToB have appeal?  Or, would it be better to forgo such a thing until the epilogue?  Does an ingame marriage appeal (a la Saerileth) or not so much?  Is talk of children something that would appeal or not so much?

Thanks,

Bill

Marriage is great, especially if there's mention of a grand wedding with a huge reception, lots of money and titles and a mansion(that's not what _all_ girls want, but I tend to get excited when I hear my heroine's been treated like a princess and showered with gifts and gold) - well, in the epilogue, that is. An in-game wedding can be sweet(like Angelo's in Saradush), but I think that's better left to the player's imagination.

Pregnancy is eeewww for me, without question - lots of issues arise, and I don't want my heroine to deal with those at all. I may not even install such a romance. (Kelsey offers a kid as a choice, and I'm fine with it, as long as there's a childfree epilogue). I'd rather have an option to not talk about this at all(but that's why the romances have branches).

And, um, I think by this point most of people, including the developers, agree that "Aerie's baby" item in the inventory, the in-game labor scene and calling CHARNAME's kid Quayle was a big facepalm.

Most appreciated.   I'd have to think about how to avoid even discussion of kids and allow it at the same time.  I shall think on this.

Heh, agreed.  Makes me think that maybe we should have a mod that gets rid of that ridiculous scene. ^^
