Note To Self
No matter how excited I get/got about mods, and the possibility of having a'party' of all brown folk (which I think is why I've been chewing thoughts on DAO lately). Checking out the bioware forums will only hurt me.
Hurt #1 - A Black Sten, titled 'ANOTHER Black Sten'. Wherein the images for the character were called Mugshot Night. Mughshot Day. In His Cage.*
Hurt #2 - Browsing character creation threads, and someone actually did a WoC! Only to have a comment to her say 'OMG! Usually I can't stand PUFFY LIPS but your girl actually looks pretty!'
I think, no matter how I try to change it - I just hate people on principle. And perhaps there's not much wrong with being misanthropic/ having misanthropic views.
[* None of this helps with how I felt when I heard about the Quinari and saw the 'Black Man Tank' in the trailers for the game - no matter how he turned out in the game itself. I suppose it's something that the possibility of an all brown party -still- excites me.]
