Here I am again, immersing myself into the lore of a role-playing game. This time, Divinity: Original Sin 2. I’ve played the first one and finished it. It was one of the best RPGs of its kind. It’s reminiscent of Neverwinter Nights and Dragon Age: Origins. I figured I’m going to spend a lot of hours again on this one.
My main character
While I had the option of creating a totally new character, I opted to choose one of the origin characters. A friend of mine said it would be a waste of voice-acting if I didn’t. So I went with Ifan ben-Mezd, as a ranger. I always play ranged characters primarily, stealth characters secondary, and caster characters as a third options. I never play melee.
Technically, this isn’t my first post on Idlectic, far from it. This may very well be my hundredth blog post since I started blogging, but I lost all of those articles in a single blunder back in 2010. This is the Idlectic story I’m going to share. Feel free to read if you’re interested, if not, no worries.
I started Idlectic sometime in the middle of 2008, for my birthday. My purpose for starting a blog back then was just to add another hobby, and to practice my writing. I love video games, and I like to write stories sometimes, I was also a game designer back then, so topics along those lines was mostly what I posted. Idlectic was an extension of who I was.
I had this string of articles explaining my gaming habits since I was a kid, from getting my first Nintendo Famicom, to joining the PC Master Race when I reached freshman high. I posted about my favorite games over the years, from Contra, to Skyim. I also posted the occasional game review, although rarely because I suck at writing reviews. There was no shortage of posts about video games in Idlectic.
