Archetype update: The Centaur - Official discussion thread

Recommended Posts

Centaurs to get Centauri haircuts IMO.

Edit to add some real content: There was an all-Centaur guild on Mourning that was a lot of fun to play against. I'm strongly considering rolling one this time around, although I'm still very curious about the increased warmth requirement and how that will play into campaign balance.

I really hate you guys right now.  I already want to play my Guinea Pig and Murder Deer...now I'm leaning towards the Centaurs as well.  I don't want too many alts in this game. 

 

You really need to cut back on that quality.

ARCHETYPE UPDATE: THE CENTAUR

Why Centaurs?

 

Centaurs are kind of a hallmark for me, actually. I've included Centaurs somewhere in every game that I've ever done. Generally, I have a fascination with "half-breeds", man/animal hybrids, like Centaurs, Minotaurs, Birdmen, Deermen... Of them, Centaurs are probably my favorite.

 

...

 

 

Aracoix confirmed? ;D

Love it! This really helps solidify some personality traits I was considering for my own Centaur lady. Centaur are better than you!

 

In that last armor, I really hope he finds someone to undo it before he has to use the bathroom. Otherwise it could get... messy. (Unless the strap thing in the back goes around each leg instead of all around the back). I am probably over-thinking this.

 

Styling looks great though! I can definitely imagine lots of centaurs talking about how cool their empires were and how they have to hang out with this uncivilized lot.

I know the feeling on the alts. I already want sooo many! Guinea Pig guy is a close second on my list, but I definitely plan on making a Centaur my main. Here's to hoping I don't completely suck at their playstyle! I must do well for the Empire! :D

Most advanced race, yet have to have help brushing their tail.  Just saying....

Now that you mentioned it, what if centaurs had tail plates to protect their tails? I've never seen a tail plate before though but when you mentioned tail, I all of a sudden had the urge to see one.

Seems cool from a design standpoint, the roman vibe has always been a safe bet to representing a notion of empires.

 

I just wonder how they will move and fit into buildings since they're the equivalent of horse and a person crouching on the horse in one space.

 

I do like the idea of injecting lore into certain campaign worlds as that'll indoubtly introduce some thematic element, such as the centaur empire ruins that are temporarily rebuilt, sounds awesome really.

 

I was never much of a centaur fan though, I find them a bit disconcerting a la body horror. Most people don't really consider this, but centaurs have 2 ribcages, so like...that's two hearts and 4 lungs...so yeah. -shudder-

Did any of the Imperial worlds survive?  Will players be able to visit one?

 

Given time and budget -- absolutely. I would love to explore the architecture of the empire. And from a player standpoint, it would be incredibly cool to explore a haunted imperial world, to repair and defend the ruins of a Centaur city... and, of course, to fight off an undead army of Hunger-infested Centaur legionnaires.

 

.. nice.

How do you like the look of our Centaur? Is this an archetype you’d like to play?

I had previously ruled out playing a centaur, but... that armor!

Gonna go play Rome 2: Total War.

You're better off playing Rome Total War 1, that is still miles better than RTW2. If you want the realism, just go for Europa Barborum mod for RTW1 if you want to bask in the legionnaire feel.

I'd say they have a Roman legion air about them... 6_u

 

Seriously though... I don't wonder how they go to the bathroom in their armor, but I DO wonder about lastgirl's comments; how do they enter buildings? Which heart do you stab them in to kill them? Etc.

 

But still... Centaurs!

 

They should get a bonus to ranged accuracy while moving. The world's greatest "mounted" cavalry! 8D

That's what your squire is for.

 

 

The back story is certainly different...I like it! He definitely looks the part.

Its as if every bittervet from every PvP game ever was personified in an overly ornate archetype that costs more to maintain than everyone else, and spend all of its off field time talking about how much it would have owned if not for the patch that destroyed its way of life.

 

That's perfect actually. Love it.

One of the most facinating features of this game. I just hope we get real Centaurs and not some apology to other races since they aren't built into a steed...
