Well, I have finished the game and I must say...
...It was totally AWESOME!
Really, I truly enjoyed myself, the fact that I have completely ignored my Dragon Age Inquisition in order to play SOTW is a clear proof of that. Both Loren and SOTW have it's own strong and weak points, but if I had to compare, I would say I liked SOTW better for the story. Why? I don't know how to put it in words, maybe is the feeling that I got while playing the game, the feeling that I was playing a tabletop RPG and all characters were my party, and we were doing quests and going in adventures. It inspired me so much, that I have talked about it to no end with the rest of my D&D players about it, inserted some of these characters on my own stories(Krimm, I'm looking at you!
) and really enjoyed this game. I cared about every single one of these characters, for their friendship, for their romance, I was truly happy.
And speaking of romance...
Chalassa was an amazing character. I fell in love with her in the same pace Althea did. Her story, her motivations and her personality kept me in a state of fascination that I only got with Chambara(Don't worry my fellow cultists! I'm still loyal to our mistress of death! Don't kill me now), and her endings, both romantic and tragic made me cry. Fortunately, there was a happy ending, and when I got it, made me rejoice, and I kept smiling for a long time while I was reading my fluffy and wonderful epilogue. And I disagree with those who said that Chalassa would not become a warm and inviting person.
My favorite character is definitely Rowinda. She made me laugh all the time and her quest is marvelous.
I wished I could make a cosplay of her(even though I'm not that old
Krimm reminded me of "Xena:the Warrior princess" for some reason. Probably because she is hot as her.
Riley is Tony Stark. I mean it. He is so handsome and funny, and even though he is greedy, I liked him best of all Male Characters.
I do admit that the game lacked a little bit more of romance and the ending felt a little rushed, but the fact the game was organized as a group of adventurers traveling the world and doing quests, it felt appropriated, somehow. Since there is the talk of the DLC, please do it! I'm all up for it, specially if would include romance and character development! Seeing Chalassa being romantic and having fits of jealousy would make my day! *------------* and I would totally love to see Althea helping her brother trying to hook up with one of the remaining romances, if possible.
Wow, I don't even know if my text makes sense, I'm just so excited now that I have finished the game that I cannot find the words. So, sorry if anything sound weird, ok?
