Sword and Bored: Costume designer

Can you imagine if your character in World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, or whichever fantasy MMO were in the real world? What would his or her armor actually look like? The shoulder pads alone would make it impossible for him or her to just walk around. I usually like to dress my characters in something that is sort of realistic.

In Mo’s MMO, a cosmetic outfitting system was just introduced, so style maven Amilya is going to help him pick the outfit that is just right for him in this week’s comic…

Who writes these stories? Ladies love strong, musculed, good looking guys, not some fat nerds. I tell this as an expert. This comic doesnt make any sense.

Yknow what this reminded me of?
Calvin and Hobbes.
How sometimes Bill Watterson would draw super-elaborate comics as a way to make a long gag or to show Calvin’s imagination. Some of my favorite strips of his. And kinda makes me miss it a bit.
Awesome awesome awesome. Thank you for the feels, unintentional though they may have been.

Sometimes the starter gear isn’t so bad.  My LOTRO characters have mostly retained their low level looks thanks to the coosmetic outfits feature.  The less showy looks just feel more right.  After all Aragorn didn’t get his epic armor until he reached Gondor.

Mo just wants to RP the hero and Amilya keeps breaking character.

I think the armor could have been more over-the-top.  I didn’t get what they were going for until I read the introduction and I realized his shoulder pads are too big and his armor is too fancy (I think?).  Maybe something like this, where the armor is basically it’s own entity and the character is more like a parasite that lives inside it.  I  mean look, dude is hiding a kid in there.
