I just wanted to throw this out there since there seems to be a lot of confusion. ALL of my gifs and screencaps are made using the original footage, NOT bluray. It’s kind of funny how often I see people talking about how it’s bluray footage when it actually isn’t. All I do is capture frames that are appealing to the eye and enhance the colors a bit.
So there isn’t some secret subbed or dubbed bluray leak that I’m using (or aware of, for that matter). It’s all just from the original.
This bit of the City Elf origin always really, really gets me
It’s easy to lose sight of the value of money in games like this. When you’re not buying little necessities like food or shelter, it’s easy for all sense of proportion to vanish quickly, especially when you get to later parts of this game and you’ve got 300 sovereigns burning a hole in your pocket.
So I always really loved this moment, because it really stuck with me to drive the economic situation of the City Elves home. You get ten silvers on your wedding day, money scrimped and saved as a gift for you, and you can give it all to an old friend to let them rent a new place. It was a scene that really stuck with me as a bitty DAO newbie, playing through not only the Tabris origin but the game itself for the first time ever.
Suffice to say, getting to party camp and seeing a fancy enchanted set of armor going for 100 sovereigns was a real fucking “holy shit” moment. I’ve always kind of loved the game for doing that to me.
re: that "i've rescinded the callouts of ___ they are now my gf" post
hi all, you have probably seen and/or reblogged the post i mentioned in the title. the person who originally made the post that i then screencapped has since gotten in contact with me and requested i take it down. out of respect for their wishes, i have done just that, and i would like to request that you please stop reblogging it, or if possible, delete the reblogs you have made.
i fucked up and did a stupid thing for the sake of a cheap joke i never expected to receive more than maybe 10 notes, and now it has like… 20k+. i can’t really undo the damage, but i’d appreciate it if you could help me minimise it at least. and please, please DON’T harass the person if you find out who it is, don’t make this worse than it is. thank you!
