Yes I agree, that's not really a good way to measure a woman's age! :wink:
More likely the eyes, they're big so indeed could seem younger. In any case at the young age nothing remotely sexy/romantic happens (no kissing, etc) and in general the game is more on the "dark" side*, so I HOPE that is fine! :)

* is very different from my other games. In one of the early scenes you can choose if to save a young thief (a kid) and one of the four possible outcomes is that he gets killed by the guards in a brutal way :mrgreen: so ehm, not Spirited Heart kind of stuff for sure!!
Ooh, I'm glad to hear that this game is taking on a darker tone then some of your other games.

First it isn't just the chest, it's a combination of her face and her chest. A more savvy facial expression would have done a lot to balance out the initial impression. Secondly you say it isn't fair, and that's true. It isn't fair, but that doesn't change the fact that some people look much older than their age and some look much younger. Otherwise you wouldn't hear comments like, "she looks very young for her age", or "he looks old for his age". And finally, it's not that she has a small bust in the first pic, it's that she seems to have no bust at all in it, and then somehow developed a small one in the years between the first pic and the second pic. That suggests something about her age in the first pic.

Sounds good. :)

Just out of curiosity, seeing how Druids obviously have a fondness for plants, and such, and many like Myrth have plants growing on them, would it be logical to assume they are rather aromatic? (Yes, I'm also thinking of a natural perfume).

I could see Myrth, if excited to see Saren, exuding a rose-tinted scent, but if she is annoyed at him, maybe something similar to burnt wood (or subconsciously exuding a scent that brings mosquitoes to bug Saren)

Excellent idea! I can imagine poor Saren being very careful to not upset his beloved/friend/whatever fearful of the bee's!

Heh speaking of Myrth I got some new colored camp images: Loren, Myrth and Jul. Will show them in the coming days :)

I have a small question, in Loren's first game, when did the story starts? I mean, the season, and since it took about one year in their quest to fight Fost and his minions, were it around the same starting season when it ended Or it was a bit more than one year?
(Ok, I know this is REALLy a random question, but it bugged me for a while and I really wanted to know, since I need it for fanfiction interests :oops: )

I didn't really think about it, but yes I guess that one year, so about same season when it started and when it ended, I'd say late Spring/Summer :)

Just a minor question on Shamans and Wizards. Wizards obviously learn their magic from external study (schools, apprenticeships, etc.). Are Shamans magic-users who have an instinctive ability to wield magic? (such as being born with it).

Well yes is something more spiritual, innate. I haven't made my mind yet, in Loren 2 there's going to be a shaman (Nook) so need to think about it. It would be something closer to a cleric than a wizard though, more rituals/prayers than spells :)
