Te’ijal and Vampirism

This occurred to me recently: Te’ijal is so hung up about being a vampire that throughout the game, she only identifies as vampire”, and “Gyendal’s sister”.  She moans and wails and cries and flails and mopes and sulks when she was turned back to human. Heck, her class is “vampire” – and “ex-vampire” when she was human – instead of “archer” or “fighter” or “vagabond” or whatever. I mean, Ulf’s class is “Scholar” instead of “orc”, so what is up with Te’ijal?

In the letters she sent, she was obviously upset about losing her vampire skills. Basically loss of power. Her brother Gyendal, who is evil, is not concerned about loss of vampire powers. All throughout The Lost Orb and Darkthrop Prophecy, he has made not a single peep about vampire.

Word Of God says that vampires are pretty condescending to humans and think that being human-like is the WORST THING EVER. This shows that Te’ijal is not a good person. She only cares about humans for shits and giggles and lulz. She doesn’t sympathize with humans. She just doesn’t want her toys to be ruined! She enjoys lording her powers over others! For crying out loud, she complains that people are no longer scared of her glare!

So does it mean that Te’ijal actually had nothing better to do every day other than “hunt” and “be vampire” that when she was no longer a vampire she could not move on and focus on other things? Because Gyendal is not at all concerned about not being a vampire! Even if the argument is that “he’s so evil he cares more about evil plans than vampirism”, that is no excuse! It shows that Gyendal is more human than his sister because he’s capable of ignoring the fact that he’s not a vampire anymore and instead focuses himself on his goals.

AND TE’IJAL IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE “GOOD VAMPIRE”. AAAAAAAAAAAAGH.

THIS IS DRIVING ME MAD. I DON’T BLOODY CARE I’M FUSSING OVER SOMEONE ELSE’S GAME. THIS BOTHERS ME VERY MUCH.

Aveyond Cooking: Gyendal and Mel charaben/kyara-ben (character bento)

I figured I would populate my blog with at least something…

This is actually a rather old creation that I made on Black Friday 2012. I woke up extra-early that day, so I thought I’d cook myself a rather extravagant lunch. Here’s human!Gyendal-and-Mel bento, based on my own interpretations of how they look like.

Aren’t they simply adorable?

Super Secret Aveyond Project

Amaranth Games is making a very special release for Aveyond 3 soon, so I’m working on something special to celebrate it. I plan to put it up for public view along with the official release, or at least soon after. I’m not part of the development team, nor am I involved much in the process beyond beta-testing, so I only have rough estimates of when it will be launched.

My guess is that I have at least until early summer. I try to finish as much of the project as possible, but if I was not finished by the time of the release, I think I will post whatever I have and update as I go.

A secret is a secret, but I can say that this involves art/drawing.

Some teasers/samples:

^This was the initial “teaser” that I posted once the first round of beta-testing was done.
