You know…I’m pretty sure I was told this earlier kek


#2270

“Fixed” it for ya! :crazy_face:


#2271

Nominating Daniel Wu for Steel as a fancast if he hasn’t been mentioned yet

I’ll redo the others after combing through details again :)) but M!Ortega is Oscar Isaac to me if there was a movie for FH


#2272

@resuri08 did mention him before, but we all gladely take the additional pictures. :grin:


#2273

I read this story and found it captivating and can’t wait for the second one.


#2274

I am aware that it has been days, but I do not care, I have to give you my compliments. Your art is masterful, it is stunning. The symbolism is astounding and inspiring. I love all the details you put in there.

Also, it makes me want to play the game very badly (I bought it, but have yet to play)

Bravo! I hope to see more of your work c:


#2275

Awww, thank you so much ;///;
flails
I love adding details and symbolism, so I’m really happy you like it!

And play it! I’m replaying right now for about the fifth time and just keep getting more addicted to the game :'D

And I certainly will post more, I can be pretty persistent with my fangirling. ಠ‿ಠ


#2276

Mortum confirmed as someone who will kick ass and take names in B2 (potentially depending on the path)

Me: oh shit son /prepares popcorn


#2277

I’m SO excited for that. In the beginning I thought he was alright, but in subsequent playthroughs I chose various options and really, really came to love him.
I mean, he freaking stares down MC if the puppet gets hurt. And then there’s his seemingly very interesting past, and the scene in the hospital where he meets Ortega made me even more curious. Aaaaaah, how am I supposed to wait til the next book without going insane and coming up with weird theories?

Edit:
I drew one of my MCs and her puppet :upside_down_face:


#2278

This looks soooo good <3 and im guessing the girls ur mc and the males the puppet? or is it vice versa? also Mortum is awesome <3 ever since i hooked him up with puppet he just makes my puppet swoon <3 i really cannot wait to see where the love square ends up lol


#2279

The angst for a love triangle of sorts is noice…but I played my Mc as a “I hate you Ortega” kisses Ortega “don’t leave me” cry


#2280

Mortum would’ve had my heart if Ortega just didn’t steal it first :((

Mortum is so quality I honestly feel bad for being unable to commit to them. I’ve settled for being bros with them and hoping we become best buds (as much as possible anyway)


#2281

Yes, I get that. (even worse, I feel like Herald will be added to the “characters I love” list with the next book, and I don’t know how to handle that. At least we can be friends. Phew)

At first I was completely against romancing anyone with the puppet, but now that I finally tried it (and most of the other options, as awful as it felt) I have a save file with MC/Ortega and puppet/Mortum. I feel sorry for everyone involved, but… it’s for science. Yes. whistles
Since I can’t exactly see that ending well I have a friendship save, too.

@Flaine1996 thank you! :'D and yes, she is the MC. I take pretty much every opportunity to play a female character. (the puppet is pretty much an exception)


#2282

mood :sweat:

Unfortunately the first name on her list is the MC :frowning:

I’m curious, what is everyone’s MC’s intentions toward the puppet? Status quo, permanent bodyswap, releasing them, or something I haven’t thought of?

I’m such a marshmallow, I want my MC and the puppet (whatever their real name ends up being) to be friends and kick ass together.


#2283

What a mood. I wonder though how much Herald can see the MC as the MC with his hero worship and all :)) the ultimate betrayal when the news comes out like my friend and mentor is like Darth Vader or something

Well am hoping the puppet stays dormant or just a puppet which my MC can eventually let go of. Maybe a proper burial or something

If they do turn out to be alive alive in my playthrough then will see how much they know and how much of a threat they can be


#2284

@bobsmyuncle in my MCs view she sees the puppet more as a tool but for me im hoping the puppets alive and gains full awareness that my MC either has to squash it back to gain control or to release them and im hoping for the latter so that my puppet cn go off and recruit ppl to save mc or kill mc xD


#2285

I am the same as you though if she doesn’t want to be part of it, I have to assess if she was a threat. XD But if my MC and the puppet don’t know each other physically, I would just probably let her go but the Farm might used her if they know I am using her. :thinking:


#2286

Regarding the puppet, it’s been a while since I played Fallen Hero so I may be misremembering things, but I think that she/he is the mysterious & powerful presence the MC feels at various points.

As far as I can tell, there are 3 possibilities:

1) The puppet’s coma severed or weakened the link between mind and body, thereby turning them into an entity that exists in limbo, one that is only able to interact with the world by reaching out ‘mentally’, or
2) ‘Entering’ them caused them to latch onto you somehow… or maybe it forged some kind of spiritual link between you, giving them a connection to the material plane, like a disembodied spirit or a demon who needs a living host in order to act directly on our world
3) The puppet was a powerful telepath before their accident, and are finally ‘waking up’ - perhaps even in their dormant state they are drawn to your power like a moth to a flame, or they could be unconsciously feeding off you somehow.


#2287

Interesting.

When the MC dreams about the Heartbreak Incident you get the option to accept or fight whatever entity they meet. If you accept you get the flashback with the doctors trying to “save” someone. The gender of the person the doctors talk about changed with what we chose for our puppet. I doubt that’s a coincidence.

Going to put my tinfoil hat on, then.
The MC talks about having found the puppet two years ago, but the incident obviously happened long before that. I still wonder how they even found the puppet. Maybe you are right and whoever the puppet used to be started waking up and called the MC, so to speak. The MC also wonders if they could get lost between bodies somehow, so that makes sense as well.

Correct me if I remember something wrong, please.


#2288

What if the puppet who is secretly the Heartbreak entity wakes up while we’re swapped and won’t let us back into our original body? :thinking:
