Legend of Queen Opala: Origin - Emoticon 16

I was going to showcase one of the new characters, but she wasn't finished in time so I'll fill out the blank between last tuesday and the next one with Kythe's adorable emoticon of all the peop...err, Magihounds!

But gaming wise everything has gone really smoothly, I've finished off another cutscene over the week so that the River Checkpoint now opens up naturally during the course of the story rather than magically getting rid of the knights so you can explore. xP

This also means the introduction of Naz'Raala is imminent and just around the corner with only a single cutscene left before I shift my attention and the storyline to the Arlon Farmlands region.

So naturally, I'll see you again next week as always!

  2. Just wondering, since I haven't been keeping up with the Betas, but where are the betas in terms of episodes of total game content?

    1. That was confusing... x3
      But out of episode 2, the latest beta has maybe around 1/3 of the story done and 2/3 of the available locations finished.

    2. Thanks, maybe it would help if I actually played all those betas that I've been receiving each month :-P

    3. After Aslon Farmlands are done there's many other regions left? And I remember you saying the first game would be the lenght of the second one up to the point you reach the bridge and Opala is kidnapped. I don't remember if you said that Origin is going to be bigger than 2, but if it is, will the game already be bigger than 2 in the second episode?

    4. I'm pretty sure Origin is already bigger than LoQOII, and only half the game is done. ;)

    5. Oh I mean many reigons left for the release of chapter 2.

    6. There is also Mount Warrengard and Harmonia Sands, each having additional locations and there might be more regions too.

      Arlon Farmlands alone is a huge region though, it's almost the same size as all regions in episode I combined.

  3. Kythe looks like a smart werewolf here. Is he the one? That would be really interesting to see him turning into a human.

    So how do you think, how much you still need to complete before releasing the full Episode 2?

    1. Ah, I see.

    2. Kythe is a Magihound, a species I created in LoQO: Origin. :3

    3. But what if he possesses the same abilities as werewolves?

      Delete
    4. If he did had the same ability, wouldn't it basically be a massive spoiler to confirm it? x3

    5. You can consider it as a rhetorical question or an unobtrusive suggestion. ;-)

  4. So i went thru the game recently to refresh my memory.
    And thru it a thought/curiosity was present....pubes, more on the trimmed side of pubes.
    So i guess what i'm babbling about is, i'm curious way no pubes, is it just one less thing the artists have to do for their sake or is it a specified thing when creating the characters?

    1. Aaaaaa did i say something wrong.. :(

    2. It is a good question, by the way. Why no girls in LoQO have pubes?

      Delete
    3. Well maybe it's because the girls are royalty, back then the royals had all the time and power they needed to have a servant shave them. I'm sure if the hero tried to bed Hilda the turnip farmer, it would look like an afro sheep.

    4. Lol, this is the first time I've seen Gabe have a Wtf moment. But now that I think about it, I have never seen any public hair on any female character. I feel like I have but maybe it came from fan art.

      Delete
    5. Sure that is true for the royal family but not for anyone else like Emeralda and Milana from loqo 2 or Ra'Tiki and Beatrix from this one.
      But i wasn't asking from an in lore perspective, im just curious about the behind the scenes character creation. Was no pubes a check mark when creating Masquerade character design for instance( bay the way while playing the game again and taking my time to explore every nook and cranny, Masquerade really grew on me a lot, her side quest and mini scene are awesome and her sausage loving personality just adds to that)or did it just never came up.
      But in any case this really isn't on any level something important, in terms of lore who really cares, as for me i'm just a bit curious and that's pretty much it.

    6. Omegalock this is the only one i can think of and what prompted me to ask:

    7. There was nothing wrong with your question, I think I even misread it the first time around because I got the impression you asked for an option to add/remove pubes on the MAIN character. XD

      With that out of the way, I don't really think about it when I design the characters...though I always imagined Osira having a small triangle bush since that was how I used to draw her. x3

      Delete
    8. Weeeell now that you mentioned it teen Farah has the choker, Mhu'Tiki has the glasses and Beatrix has the helmet so the main character should definitely have the pubes...i mean it's only fair.
      But ya the pubes curiosity has been put to rest and nice to hear that Osira is rocking the triangle.

      Delete
    9. yea I support the hairy pube thing (and generally speaking would look appropriate on a mature matriarch like Farah), why glasses yes and not pubic hair? :D (I admit that I don't like glasses)

      maybe making it as option before starting the game, like for the furry thing, so most females could have a hairy pube if someone likes it and not just one character

      Delete
  5. Love the eyes really well done but i wish the main had the same colour it would make them seem more of the same person. One question i have played most of the beta but neither new monster bosses or any animals have shown up will there be some in the next beta?

    1. It's possible, it'll likely come down to how quickly people want the beta...it's always a balance of time/content. x3

  6. Darn, Kythe looks good! ♥

    That reminds me of a thing that kind of weirded me out a bit ever since the first game: Why does the male main character only have one expresseion compared to the females?
    I mean, I get it with the first two games since back then only the females had custom portraits.

    But by now it feels a bit like the hero gets shortchanged compared to the females, where's his male privilege? (Kidding, he has plenty of that)

    Actually, I don't even care that much for the MC but that pic of Kythe makes me wonder what his horny expression would look like... Tongue hanging out and drooling, maybe? Or even foaming at the mouth?

    1. The main reason is because there are so many different main characters to select this time around, so it would quickly rack up a ton of different emoticons if each protagonist face should have an equal amount and then multiply that with every costume you can wear... x3

  7. The last beta of Episode 1 was 0.10 (the last one released in August) and the current beta of Episode 2 is 1.08, if I'm not making a mistake...
    Eh, no symbolic magic of numbers this time, I guess.

    1. Hmm...wouldn't it then make more sense if Episode 2 ends up being version 1.20? ;)

      Delete
    2. Wow, that's a big number.
      If that means it will make the game only better, then that's wonderful.

      Delete
  8. I know I'm basically a broken record, but unlike some big name companies... like Capcom... but when's the next beta drop. Also, did you day something about a nre beastman mode at some point? I'm curious who the artist would be, if that's not my own mental delusions speaking.

    1. Check last week's update Gabe answered your questions here apart from who is the artist.

      Delete
    2. Huh? Didn't notice, and I had checked a but before this one went up, ah well.
      Gabe still updates better that capcom though. Anyways, thanks for that

      Delete
    3. The second Beastman Mode artist will be R_ex, he did a bunch of optional illustrations already in the game so he shouldn't be completely unknown. :3

  9. Sleep Deprivation and Nightfall Raid do not have side quest markers
    opalas description in encylopedia has the description for bal rana
    also it shows the picture of adult farah
    layla shows description of bal ranas daughter and has farahs picture
    mhu tiki has the description of the dark emperor and the picture of farah

    1. Err...Quest markers? Are you reporting a bug for a feature that's not even in the game yet? XD

  10. I'm sure this had been answered somewhere and I just can't find it and for that I'm sorry, but who does the art for these emoticons and do they have a hentaifoundry or something, because these things are beautiful. Such vibrant color and detail, extremely well done pieces. Thanks and keep up the good work.
