Just wanted to say the designer has done a fantastic job with the female characters in this game. Not a fan of the hyper-sexualised fantasy woman trope for a lot of reasons, but apart from anything else it simply makes the game less immersive. Here every character looks very cool but also realistic. This was one of the first things that attracted me to the kickstarter, along with the rest of the beautiful art.

I can think of two other games I am not backing because of terrible art. Isaac made a post on his blog showing it is not just by accident either.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Can't say I've ever played a game where the depiction of attractive women somehow ruined the immersion (tho I suppose the laughable chainmail bikini trope might do it). Having said that, I am digging the artwork in this one. Variety is the spice of life.
