If you could have a second character, what would it be?
Right now, for me it would be the unambitious secondborn of a highly-ranking Borsail noble. My father would be an npc blue robe Borsail Templar with whom I would hang out in the Arbotoreum when no one was around. Since I'm fairly unreliable in terms of staying a long time, I would probably not pitch in enough into events to make my participation necessary. My older brother would be a highly ambitious, vicious person hell-bent on getting a seat in the Senate and rising as high in the ranks as possible. Extra points for a real player. I would probably not see my aide that much unless they played tons and all I would really want is whatever random gossip they've heard and a bottle of good whiskey ready at all times. If they don't have it, I just give them money and ask them to have it ready the next time.
I would probably be either in the Arbotoreum, nursing a single drink, or in Red's, drawing the people around me. I'm not a big creator of plots or a big mover, and I would honestly not give my aide much work. I enjoy slice-of-life, and I might add in something sharp and crass occasionally, and slice-of-life really does make that occasional confrontation sharper and more heart-pounding. I would probably die from being poisoned by an evil fellow, I would probably be an unknown krathi, and it would never show.
As it stands I hope they never open a second character slot for us, because I want what they said they wanted for us--- a single perspective in the world, free of cheats and the unfair learning of secrets. If they ever decide to make an Arm 2 or some other game with the same code base, that has magick and crafting, I would play it, and try something different than what I have now.
