Okay, so as we all know, the second Alpha is drawing close and writing is nearing completion on Wrath. The Beta will be here soon after the second Alpha (Don’t ask me how soon, or if that soon is measured in seconds or on a geological timespan, I don’t know). This means it’s time to start thinking about DLC!
If we want it, what we want, how we want it and so on!
So! Let’s Pitch our DLC Desires in this thread!
I’ll go first!
I want a couple things. I want a New Mythic Path where you turn yourself into a robot (or a construct if that flavor is too severe for a DLC). I Love grafts in Pathfinder Tabletop, and while we got “Turn yourself into a Demon” And “Turn yourself into Undead” the final flavor of Grafts is Robot arms (you know, aside from “turn yourself into a mushroom”, or “let the Drow decide what looks good on you!” both of which are Terrible ideas). I want to turn main character into an unstoppable Terminator. Or at least a Golem (if tech isn’t allowed).
I also want Summoner! Wrath has a dearth of arcane casters right now, but you know what would help a lot with that? Summoner, and a new Companion to go with it!
I also want more romance. Romance for everyone!
It made me sad that people who like guys didn’t get a romance option last DLC, but not enough to not get a romance option myself (and I don’t like guys). So allow me to propose a compromise:
The Romance option is a Doppleganger (who is also a Summoner, for best synergy).
This Doppleganger will not have an innate Gender. It will have 5 Character portraits that all share common themes (like eye color and height), but will all be radically different skin tones and genders including at least one that is completely ambiguous, and one that’s a natural Doppleganger form. The Doppleganger will be a romance option, and during the romance, the player preference will end up determining the doppleganger’s chosen form (or continued fluidity of form). To Be Clear, the Doppleganger doesn’t identify as any gender (including non-binary) gender is an entirely alien concept to the Doppleganger and it is experienced at a remove, not an inherent quality of the Doppleganger’s preference.
This DLC would satisfy everyone! People who like Male Romance options get a male romance option. People who prefer female romance options get a female romance option. people who prefer none of the above either get a non-binary romance option or a terrifying Doppleganger Romance Option (complete with dopple-snuggles!) and people who think that this is a terrible perversion and that people on the LGBT+ Spectrum shouldn’t exist in video games have to buy the DLC anyway if they want access to Summoner! Everyone wins! Except that I win twice because I get both Dopplegangers and Summoners.
What are your ideas for DLC?
