preparing urself to witness elia martell being so thoroughly disrespected probably now and throughout season 8 (coz this will obviously be referenced again multiple times probably “uwu yessssssssss jon’s parents were in loooooooooooove and it was so sad!!!”) by the “HOPEFUL LOVERS” that only exist so d&d can hand jon the iron throne on a platter and also draw parallels to joniella:
Lately I’ve been going back and forth so much between “Jonsa is definitely endgame, look at all the evidence and the CHEMISTRY” and “this ship is as doomed as the Titanic, but whatever, I’m going down with it anyway” that I’m giving myself whiplash.

Hi! I love love love your demo, and I'm very much looking forward to the finished game! I wonder if you would please be willing to maybe give us some fun facts about each of the characters? Nothing spoilery, just fun little tidbits/quirks that probably wont show up in game anyway? Thank you so much!
Absolutely! I’ve been sitting on some of these tidbits for a while. I have more, but I don’t know if the rest qualify as lighthearted and fun…
Although Noah and Emry are roughly the same
height - both hovering at about 6'2”- Noah is often mistaken for being even taller, given his broad, muscular frame and big personality. ;)
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Noah’s
natural body temperature runs hotter than most people.
Noah – despite being quite
comfortable roughing it in the wilderness – actually enjoys nothing in the world
more than the luxury of a nice, warm bath. He has an appreciation for the finer things in life, period.
Emry has very distant relatives on his
mother’s side of the family who are originally from Izcapor (this setting’s equivalent of East Asia), possibly explaining his penchant for jasmine tea…
As learned as he is, Emry has a
lot of trouble picking up languages. He speaks only two, and one of them quite poorly.
Many a person has asked Emry why
he never tried following his father’s footsteps to practice medicine. His go-to answer is that he had no skill for
the craft, but in truth, he just cannot abide the sight of broken
bones and severed limbs. He can handle a little blood, but severe injuries
cause him to become embarrassingly faint.
Ask him and Teiran will loudly
proclaim his undying hatred of dancing, but he is – in spite of
his best efforts – a pretty graceful dancer.
Teiran will ride for fun, but
not as often as most nobles due to the fact that his favorite horse broke its leg
when he was a child and had to be killed. :(
Thanks to a combination of superb muscle memory,
perception, and fine motor control, Teiran is very much the type of person who can learn new physical skills with (irritating) ease. Show him how to do something and he can typically pick it up right away, though he struggles
with less hands-on tasks.
He’s basically illiterate and he doesn’t do many one-handed tasks that require focus, so it’s hard to tell… but Desmond is naturally ambidextrous.
Due to his status as a migrant, Desmond
was excluded from the military draft that took most lowborn,
able-bodied men his age during the war.
Before he was eight years old,
Desmond was already training in the Izcapori art of swordsmanship
alongside his older brothers. He never had a chance to become truly proficient, and
hasn’t picked up a weapon in years, but every step he learned, he
tbh I’m not salty about any additions in warriors. I’m just looking forward to playing the game.
I’m just a bit puzzled that they keep adding sword users when they said before they wanted to not add too many. That’s literally my only concern is that there’s too many sword users. Even then I could care less.
I loved the first Planescape: Torment RPG, so I’m looking forward to playing this. I love that it will allow you to solve quests in multiple, different ways. I heard you’ll also be able to play as a female character in this sequel, which is nice, since the first game didn’t have that option.
Night in the Woods
I love the game’s soundtrack and art style. It feels quite rare to come across a game with such a friendly art style, yet has very adult themes. I like seeing works that do that.
Return of the Obra Dinn
I’ve played the proof-of-concept demo of this and ended up writing a positive review of it. I really like the premise of using a time-stopping pocket watch to solve multiple murders and deaths. This is from the creator of Papers, Please, btw.
I’m not sure if I’ll actually play this (I’m terrible at platformers), but I’m looking forward to seeing it come out and hearing people’s thoughts on it. I love how it looks like a 1930s Max Fleischer animation (the game devs went as far as using paper to traditionally animate and paint everything).
Ghost of a Tale
You play as a mouse bard. I feel like that premise alone gets me. The Redwall-inspired world that this RPG is set in looks breathtaking, and the fact that you play as a mouse simply makes that world feel even grander in scale. Also, the mouse is adorable. His name is Tilo, and he has a bell-hat.
