Love in the Age of Dragons

The scenario presented in the comic is pretty much what happened to me the other day. There I was romancing this sweet religious girl (a mistake I’ve made often in real life) in an attempt to simultaneously protect her innocence while inviting her into my world of sin and lechery. Needless to say, these kind of things just don’t usually work out.

I’ve played a fair amount of Bioware’s games over the years and I’ve learned that their scenarios can be fraught with peril and that I should be saving early and often. And I practiced this philosophy when it came to fighting dragonkin, but mostly ignored it when it came to woo-ing my temperamental Orlesian flower. Needless to say, I screwed up and now my character (a human mage named Renaldo Deeplove) is doomed to celibacy for the rest of the game. This carnal defeat must have broken Renaldo’s spirit in that after this rejection it seemed like I was losing every battle I came across. I knew that I had some balance issues in my party, but it’s almost as if my lower-case avatar had lost the will to live without the dangling carrot of digital poonanny.

Thus my new character was born! I started over as a Commoner Dwarf named Steaküm. Honestly, I rarely play as straight forward warrior types and I’m really enjoying the change of pace. I’ll keep you appraised of his adventures as my gallant dwarf and his loyal mabari hound, “Kibbletits” venture o’er the land.
