Isair the Harborman by Nyila Isair the Harborman by Nyila
That's a photo-manipulation I made to illustrate my very own Neverwinter Nights 2 character, Isair, Shard-bearer and Knight-Captain of Crossroad Keep, a Lawful Good, triple good, Human (he has one quarter of Elven blood) Paladin of Torm.

When I saw the picture of this guy I thought "Wow that's exactly the way I imagine my Isair!" *is totally a fangirl of her own character* :dead:

Here he's in the swamps near his home village, West Harbor, which was recently destroyed, and he's fighting a Shadow Reaver..


So, I got the picture of this guy from the game Silkroad Online ([link]) I had never heard of this game before, but I loved their artwork. :aww:

Huge thanks to :icongallery-of-dreams: for the tree branches. :glomp:

The Shadow Reaver is from [link] (no idea who painted it..)


PS: There's a reason why there's nothing on the left: I use this as a desktop background. :lol:

*Is now a fangirl of your character* Very nice! He's all sexy in that "Force-for-good" kind of way. I love it when I see bad ass paladins as opposed to the goody two shoes Mary Sue variety. Go you.

Holy balls.

I think my husband will be amused by this pic. If for only me going "Haha he's prettier then your toon!"

The hubby has a aasimer (spelling?) cleric of tyr.
The real funny part is his literal partner in crime. My moon elf arcane trickster. The lawful good cleric and the chaotic neutral trickster of tymora.
Odd couple indeed.

Haha well I find it awfully hard to make good-looking characters in NwN2, especially a male.

The only ones I find are ok are the Humans. The Aasimars look a little.. feminine? ;P

My character's prettier than your husband's? Guys don't care if their character is ugly.. You know, my husband's character in World of Warcraft was the ugliest Undead Warrior ever, he had no jaw..

Your couple is fun! :D When I played NwN2, I actually invented my own story. I decided Esmerelle had twins, instead of just one baby. Isair's a goody-two-shoes Paladin of Torm while his twin sister, Maralie, is a Chaotic Neutral Conjurer/ Eldritch Knight. She's a troublemaker, but Isair himself kinda fails at being a paladin because he likes women and is unkempt (somewhat dirty, with messy hair and unshaved). Isair is the one with the shard in his chest, his sister is the annoying side-kick.

I'm glad you liked this little photo-manipulation. :) Thanks for the favie!

Yeah we did that to. We decided that my trickster was Daeghun's daughter who idolized "Aunt Esmie" to the point of arguing with her father, alot.

Either way Ryneth (my toon) got into trouble and Mikail (the hubby's) would always get her out except the whole shard deal, that was all his. Like the whole trial thing we scowled at and went "It's totally Ryneth getting framed".

Technically my hubby's character was human that he put tatoos on to look aasimarish. We just always called him an aasimar though.

I debate writing out our version of the game myself. Maybe after I finish other fics.

I like the story I created for NwN2, I'm thinking about writing it.. Well, not really.. Cause I kinda suck at writing, especially at describing things.. but maybe one day!

I decided that Esmerelle had twins instead of one baby. Isair and Maralie. They both are good-hearted, but Isair's obsessed with his duty to people, and Maralie's just a troublemaker. I like this pairing actually, it's pretty fun, a Lawful Good Paladin of Torm/ Neverwinter Nine and a Chaotic Neutral Conjurer/ Eldritch Knight. Isair's the one with the shard in his chest, and he's the main character, his sister is the annoying side-kick who gets him in trouble at every turn. ;P

Isair is kind of a failed paladin though, he's unkempt (somewhat dirty, unshaved, has messy hair [link]) and he enjoys the company of women a little too much. I can totally imagine him not being able to make his choice between Elanee, Neeshka and Shandra. And he also grew up with Amie.. Dun dun dun! And there's Kana, and so many others.. :lol:

I'm thinking about making a NwN2 mod one day, a "Romantic Encounters" for NwN2, where you can have all sorts of one-night stands and flirt around. It would be for both male and female players. :)

All these ideas in my head.. I can't focus on one single thing, I always make myself very busy with a bunch of different projects, plus all the real life things I have to do! :dead: That's probably why I'm insomniac, my brain is constantly working! >.<

Lol, poor you. I know the feeling with the too many projects, though... There's of Mice and Men, there's the sequel to Memory Lane I want to write, there's another non-NWN2 project, kind of book I want to write... and the second book I want to write... and the mod I want to help with...

I need to lose my job ;P

I really appreciate you taking the time to help with the mod. Creating a mod is a slow process though, so I wouldn't want you to see it as a chore, you can take all your time to write stuff, if an idea pops in your mind and you want to write a dialogue, it's cool! :)

The warmer time of the year is usually when I'm the busiest, there's all these inevitable family reunions, there's a baby coming in July (my nephew :D), and also I'm trying to buy a house, plus all the projects I got myself into.. I need to get a clone or two! ;P

*sigh* I really wish I had more time, but there will be more dialogues, I promise ;) Only not next week, because I will be away, at an exhibition, working at our company booth... my poor feet, they start aching when I simply think about it.

Clone... sounds fantastic :D Or better yet... I have to lose my job, and have more time to write...

I find it hard to make a good-looking character in NwN2, but anyway, here he is: [link]

He's 21, very tall, ashy blond messy hair, light brown eyes, a little stubble. He pretty much fails at being a paladin because he likes women a little too much and he's kinda unkempt (he doesn't take much care of himself, his hair is messy and he's somewhat dirty). He's brave and has a good heart.
I make him start with the militia background.

I used the same character when I played NwN, he was a Champion of Torm. I am very fond of him! :love:

it is hard. thank gawd for the hakpaks. this maybe is a hakpak head? i don't remember seeing it in the game o_O

btw how do monks fall into this "opposite gender" thing? don't they make some celibacy vows too?
Reply
:iconnyila:
Nyila Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Nope, it's not a hakpack head, I haven't installed any head or clothes packs yet for NwN2 (I had a bunch in KotOR II so I probably will go check what's available).

Well, in our world, monks do make vows of celibate, so I'd think that they do in the Forgotten Realms as well. The monks of the FR are created on the Asian monk model, though.. There's a mod that adds a monk character to BG2, Aklon (not finished yet though), and he's romanceable, so I guess FR monks too have little weaknesses. ;P

As for paladins, they have the right to get married (see Keldorn or Anomen in BG2), I don't think they make vows of celibate, their duty's just more important than their wives. :no:

I think the monks are actually the only ones to make vows of celibate in the FR setting. :thumbsup:

:iconmaddama:
maddama Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2008
Anomen... wasn't he married in a fairly non-canonical mod? :D well, given that "our" clerical celibacy has economical grounds, i suppose they could indulge from time to time, without making it too official ;]

:iconnyila:
Nyila Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Actually, Anomen proposes to the Bhaalspawn in BG2: ToB, if you've gone through the whole romance. :P

I don't remember a mod where he was married though.. :confused:

maddama Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2008
does he? i thought all bg romance options were only available in mods :O oh, well, could be wrong.

Nyila Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
No, in BG2 you can romance Aerie, Jaheira or Viconia as a male, or Anomen (he can be either Chaotic Neutral or Lawful Good, which makes two different romances) as a female.

Then some people made a mod, the NPC flirtpack, that adds flirt options to those already existing romances. ;)

I think all these romances are only available to good-aligned characters though, I might be wrong about Viconia, not too sure about her. :confused:

But the Air Genasi are looking very cool, I think. :D

Not to be the stick-in-the-mud here, but since this contains a copyrighted image used without permission, it should be posted in the Cutomization->Wallpaper category, and not in any of the regular deviation categories.

I had to do the same thing for my Nanoha Wallpaper ([link]), which annoys me to no end since this is the most popular deviation in my gallery, and looks set to continue that trend for a long time. :P

In other news, I like how you put this together. I believe the weakest part of the presentation is the bland green background, though. Needs a gradient, some more ghosts, or somesuch, IMO.
