    Beamdog let us see the new Aribeth model (they promised to change the hair color) and honestly, i'm pretty blown away.

    If they keep changes up to that level of quality the EE would be something worth buying, I think, even before any new content is made for the game.

    What do you think?

    I assume this is the shot of Aribeth that damedog is talking about, I put it up on the local media archive for easy viewing purposes :

    That jaw... makes her look more like a tranny to be honest. :shake: It's an awfully blurry shot and possibly unfortunate angle, but still.

    Not saying that there's anything wrong with trannies, it's just that Aribeth isn't supposed to be one. Not unless this is another Beamdog SJW "enhancement"... :lol: Honestly though, such a strong, masculine jaw would fit a male head model. As blocky as the old model is, at least there's no mistaking it for a male. With this "enhanced" one, well... could have fooled me!

    I think the politically correct term is transsexual/transgender. :nono:
    I can see where you're coming from, but the original portrait art shows her having quite a square jaw as well though.. :square:

    There are quite a few versions of Aribeth out there, these are more flattering:

    Can someone explain the functional utility of armor that essentially highlights her breasts while leaving the skin between them and her chin completely undefended?

    Just wonderin' . . . .

    :p

    It's venerable chainmail bikini legacy, not to be questioned. :shake:

    But yea, on the list of stupid female "fantasy" armours, Aribeth's ranks pretty high on the list. Back when NWN was current, I remember the devs making excuses that it's really just "ceremonial" armour or something silly along those lines. I guess Aribeth just didn't get the memo that she should only be wearing it for ceremonies.

    The model does look much improved, I thought they'd said they wouldn't change the graphics first, but perhaps they reconsidered.

    Also, classic bikini armour.
