I’ve explained to some of my friends (those who are interested in video games and the head canons I write for my characters and stuff) that I’ve generally followed a “mold” for what my characters are like in each game. This mold has been something like playing elves, or something like Miqo’te (in FFXIV) every chance I get. So basically, I play generally slim-built characters. (This is just the aesthetic side of the mold)
But lately I’ve been thinking of breaking that mold by trying to play races I wouldn’t play otherwise, simply to add a more interesting turn to the storyline I have going on with my characters. For example, I’m considering playing Qunari in Dragon Age: Inquisition and might main something like Orc or Tauren when Warlords of Draenor drops.
I don’t know… just my thoughts, I guess. I love talking about this kind of stuff but I don’t really know who’s interested in hearing about them so I just make posts like this one. *shrugs*
