Yep, I redesigned Raene Wolfrunner – redesign was done a few weeks back even, she’s just not made a show until now. The new look is meant to be more like the WarCraft 3 Sentinels rather than the World of WarCraft ones, but still remeniscent of both between design and colour. There’s been a whole lot of debate back and forth both on whether the look works and whether to keep it a Raene-only thing or not. And yes, I completely handwaved the change of outfit. Much like I did with Hanis’ change of trousers.
Redesigning Te’len is also on the schedule, but she’s got that skirt that complicates matters. Still, there’ll hopefully be an updated model available for her before we next see her.
For this particular issue.. I’ll admit, it’s one I actually didn’t really feel too happy about having to make, but also knew I had to make; while Beyond the Tree is ultimately character first, characters aren’t always happy and don’t always have clever remarks coming out of their ears. And some events need to leave their marks.
In the in-game quest where you report back on Teronis, the whole “oh no, he’s dead..” angle is played very short and then thrown aside and (nearly completely) forgotten – for very understandable reasons, as Raene and the player character are nearly complete strangers. Hani and Raene – on the other hand – are friends, so Teronis dying needed to have a suitable impact.
