Crowfall takes a deeper look at the Centaur

    
10
Back in the 90s, I was in a very famous TV show.

The Centaur in Crowfall is more than just a normal person whose lower body happens to be a horse. If you want to be archetypical, Centaurs are closer to the Elves of many fantasy settings, an old and arrogant race with designs on conquering everything. The latest development post for the game, penned by creative director J. Todd Coleman, walks through the design of the Centaur from early concepts to the current form.

Coleman explains that his love of the race in older games like Shining Force led to the idea of a split: These somewhat bestial creatures that are nevertheless very refined and cultured. As they exist in Crowfall, Centaur are heavily based off of the Roman Empire, convinced that if not for the all-consuming Hunger, their empire could have eventually conquered all worlds. Take a look at the full article for a deeper look at the horse-people and how they tie into the game as a whole.

I know right, everyone plays a centaur so they can have a horse-sized member.

Centaurs are forever ruined by that baby centaur sketch.

I’m not usually a grammar nazi, but whoever wrote the article on the Crowfall site WAY overuses parentheses… to the point it’s annoying.

“I want a (very real) justification for the Centaurs to be hugely prideful…”

What is the purpose of the parentheses?

“I want a very real justification for the Centaurs to be hugely prideful” … means the same thing!  The whole article is done like that.  Sorry, I know I’ll regret even mentioning this from the flames it will generate, but it’s just a pet peeve of mine.

Namedropping Shining Force is gonna increase the chance I back a project like 10 fold.

You need to pay in order to talk on the WoW forums too, this is nothing new.

TehAcidBaron I’m a bit nervous this is a sign that the game will not have much in terms of gear appearance.

But then again this isn’t WoW so maybe it’s not as necessary.

will be interesting to see how gear will look and evolve on these, generally games don’t make such diverse PC’s to avoid too many alterations to  armor and weapons.
