First, if you don’t use INPC’s, you totally should. The voice acting isn’t perfect, but it’s generally cute and fun. Rumarin is one of the more popular NPCs added, one of the “super followers”, who has extra dialogue and interactions. He’s certainly one of my favorites.
He reminds me of a few people I knew in college (not so much grad/post-grad because you don’t have time for this bullshit then lol), some sweeter than others. Still makes me cringe, but it’s the good kind of cringe.
So I wanted to give him a new look. I wanna first say that I really have no issue with the vanilla NPC’s or the NPC’s that come stock with INPC’s, even though in the case of the former it’s just a bunch of reused presets over and over. But I mean, that’s okay. Aria fell in love with vanilla Romlyn, and I could never, ever dream of changing him. I’ve grown accustomed to lots of faces.
But I’ve had the urge exactly twice: Once for Erevan (of whom I have screens somewhere. Lawdy lawds…), and now for Rumarin.
I’m a bit undecided on him. I like the character design. Basically I wanted to go for making him like the most prominent person in my head to behave the way he does. I think in motion, with him chattering, things would be different. I dunno. But these are just some screens until I get up the gumption to actually apply the changes.
Also his hair needs adjusting and I’m not sure why it is the way it is.
And Furb is done for the night. Chapter 8 or Rei’s story is soon, but only because it absolutely needs to be. After that, I’m taking a short break. Wanna do something Christmassy for y’all. I’m not sure what it’ll be though. Hrrrrrrmery…
