Playing too much Rogue Trader has rotted my brain so now I’m just working on more elf shit. Story of my life.
All of my babbies, in chronological order
I got distracted from my BG3 Honor Mode run somewhere in Act II with Rogue Trader. I guess because it is an all new story so it feels fresh after a few play-throughs of BG3. I tried it a bit a while ago, but I have returned with renewed vigor after realizing that you can ALSO kiss elves in Rogue Tader.
In the beginning I accidentally romanced Cassia because it seems completely impossible not to. You just be kind to her and now suddenly you’re in a relationship. Like I get how she would easily fall for the character in her circumstances,,, but literally I just told her she was beautiful when she was feeling insecure about her looks and then suddenly we were in a relationship. I guess that’s how Courtly Love works or something. The only way to avoid it was to be unnecessarily harsh with her. I had to break that off. I’m playing an old scoundrel ex-mafioso, I don’t thinks Cassia REALLY wants him.
I even tried reloading and playing it where I did NOT tell her she was beautiful (which I still think I should be allowed to do without wanting a relationship with somebody), and STILL it was a almost impossible to avoid a relationship! I get it, she was sheltered and just read a bunch of books about knights and princesses and you just rescued her life from a harrowing ordeal so she imagines you’re all gallant and stuff. It makes sense she would have a crush. But why does the game flag me as being in a relationship just because she wants to be?
It was like BG3’s Gale in the earlier days where the dialogue options were all either “we bang now ” or “kick him in the balls.” There’s no “I’m flattered but no thank you.”
Anyhow, sorry Cassia, you’re better off without me. I brand bratty elf boy-toys now, you wouldn’t be into it anyway.
