All of my characters in their April Fools Day bobblehead forms.
My client weirded out yesterday and of course this happened.
I’ve seen less scary horror movies!
I’m horrified and rolling with laughter at the same time JFC
This reminds me of the “big reveal” from the movie Sleepaway Camp for some reason which resulted in me sitting here laughing so hard I cried.
Finally got my mesmer, Rudra, to level 80, and got him some desperately needed nice clothes and a makeover kit to broaden his body (that armour made him look rail thin) and give him an actual glow.
the norn asked the asura how she was fishing and the asura was like “why? how do you fish?”
I saw this guy again just a few days ago when taking a beb thief to Vigil’s Keep and pretty much completely lost it as I swam by him.
oh, god.. INKING..
AND I HAVE TO FINISH IT BEFORE THE 18th
NO PRESSURE OR ANYTHING.
"But mom I’m a scholar I like books…"
"YOU LIKE SWORDS NOW TRAHEARNE!"
Honestly. To me, this scene means a lot more than people give it credit, or even think about.
What upsets me, is that everyone jumps on the ‘Treesus’ bandwagon, without really paying attention to Trehearne. He isn’t there to take up the rewards when Zhaitan was defeated. He didn’t waltz up and take the credit for Orr. He was told to go someplace HE DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO GO. A task he didn’t even want to do. He was put into a place of power because he was voted into it, only then did he accept it. He gives praise where it’s due, and admits that he could never have done this without OUR help, without the PACT.
Yet people just spout that he’s a credit stealing Kormir-wannabe. I like Trehearne. Despite his voice Acting, he’s a very well made character.
Even then, his voice? I like it. Yes, it sounds unenthusiastic, but he’s TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OLD. A First Born. Sure, not as old as an Elder of any of the other races, but he was born..awoken, to do one thing, Save Orr. After Twenty-five years of making no progress and having no success, you’d be pretty bummed too.
Either way. I like Trehearne, and people need to give him more credit.
Come back to tumblr, crap pants over the notes this post has.
But no, seriously, I’m actually not overly fond of Trahearne, but I don’t hate him, either, at all. I used to. But I’ve been working though nine characters at this point, and he grows on you a bit, like a weed.
More that his personality is deeply tucked away, actually, and it takes repeat plays to catch it. He’d be very good if he didn’t suffer from being underplayed and underwritten like a lot of characters in the PS do, from subdued voice acting, and from bad timing with his introduction for non-sylvari. He has a ton of potential that wasn’t taken advantage of, as well, such as what a necromancer might be thinking when that necromancer is charged with cleaning up a nation of undead, and helping a friend deal with what might as well be a near god of undeath on top of it. That’s just one example of the things the writing team could have touched on that would have helped.
But with what is there, if you look and dig a bit, you find that he’s a bit of a sad person who others seem to look down on, for being a recluse, a nerd, and for the impossible job he has to do, and it’s more than a little depressing and sympathetic. It’s also strange and discomfiting how the Pale Tree talks to him at times, as in the above caps, I wish her tone of voice carried through text. I have never been upset at him for stealing my supposed ‘glory,’ and my post about him keeping Caladbolg was a joke. I do not envy Trahearne even remotely. What praise he gets is well deserved for the monstrous things he’s had to deal with. I just wish they had grasped and taken advantage of his full potential, and that he had been more openly written as a well rounded character.
As for his voice, I think his VA could have been a bit more lively in some scenes, but he did very well in the “imposter illusion trahearne questioning your sanity” portion of the PS. He’s good at sounding intimidating, at least. I’d be more bothered by it, but I don’t imagine years spent in Orr helps with one’s emotive abilities.
All in all, Trahearne is a character I’d like to like. I hope they utilize him properly in the future.
Celebrating memories of Lion’s Arch with a ridiculous Tarnished Coast dance party that started with two other guild members and escalated from there.

Featuring this random blond norn who I can’t even look at without losing my shit.
NO PRESSURE OR ANYTHING.
The boobs were bad enough on humans, and they’re absolutely terrifying on norn.
And oh yeah, since Ilta has the heaviest build
Ass clipping, we meet again.
Those tatas in the first one look like two half melons perfectly cut and surgically implanted beneath her skin.
Anet if you positively must show full breasts in an armour skin, please have your armour modeling artists find references regarding how breasts actually look, first? And no, you can’t use “but it might hint at nipples!” as an excuse. If you turn everything down to best performance, you can see the nipples in the texture map anyway. :]
oh btw scantily clad armor for males that doesn’t turn us into smurfs plz. The gladiator and feathered sets don’t fucking count. I really would like my necromancer and warrior to not be covered completely head to toe, and giant shitty tapered sleeves and a few leather straps across the chest don’t count. Ladies get plenty of options (and it’s even their only choice in some cases, like the zodiac skins.. ugh) but males hardly get any at all. C’mon, Anet!
"I sense darkness approaching… Something intrudes upon the Dream."
I imagine some sylvari have a fine time while they’re within the Dream, before they’re born.. and others, not so much. Jesen was one of those. He most likely got a lion’s share of Nightmare Court created memories, as well as a good helping of fragments from Trahearne’s and/or Caithe’s time in Orr. He just really didn’t luck out with those random memories.
Despite this, he isn’t Nightmare Court, and he’s not a bad person. He’s a very nice fellow, in fact, but very skittish sometimes and very absent at others. Early forays into explosives and alchemy addling his mind didn’t help matters.
I had to do this in pixel due to my tablet losing pressure sensitivity and me being stubborn.
I’m just gonna reblog my own art I posted a while ago at fuckass-early in the morning because I do what I want. %)
I “love” doubletapping because engie is my main and every other button (including on my 17 button mmo mouse) is keybound to deal with kits and shit so BOY OH BOY it sure is fun when I forget to turn off doubletap in JPs!
Much like a mistimed dodge, I managed to reblog this to the wrong blog. Like a boss.
