So if physique makes you HUGE and magic makes you have glowy shit, what does guns do?

Skill (guns, crossbows, speed) controls your height.

EDIT:

If you get tied up in combat a bunch, you can actually get scars.  Scars make you harder to love, easier to be feared (as far as I can tell)

I thought they feared 'staches.  And ponytails.  Hair in general was out to get them.

Stache actually reduced merchant prices too.  So, it was both Charisma *and* Luck.

:sadpanda: How will I maintain my impeccable, body? Unscarred except for the deep etching of magic coursing through it?

You only get scars if you get knocked out. At least, I sure don't have any scars.

So if physique makes you HUGE and magic makes you have glowy shit, what does guns do?

Make you taller.

This game('s prequel) posits that chicks dig outrageous 'staches.

Each hairstyle in this one has unique stats, so people can like them or be afraid of them or both. You can even get them if you're a woman, but it increases your "Crossdresser" stat. For men, you increase this stat by wearing dresses and makeup and the like.

Our benevolent and obsessive-compulsive Administration will surely split such topics into their own threads.

Fuck you too.

In the future, new releases should be given their own topic instead of being posted here.  This thread is really for dumping experiences with old titles that you pick up.

Really, the "more topics = better" mantra applies here.

ONCE AGAIN, the title and description of the topic read "Babble about a video game you are playing until enough interest builds to split it off into its own thread."  It's not anyone else's fault that only a few uninterested people can execute part two.

I understand that sometimes offhand posts can beget big discussions that warrant a split.  But especially in these months with many big name games being released at once, I'd appreciate some foresight when bringing up new games.  Otherwise, you end up with people talking about multiple new games in the same post, which is impossible for us to split into respective topics.

I guess I'm at that stage again where I'm beginning to loathe the monolithic threads.

So, you can get STDs in this game? Also, is there any point/merit to boning your spouse in this game? I mean, sure you can pass on an STD to them, and make a baby, but does it DO anything other than make a little footnote in your world?

It might come into play at the ending. I'm not sure. Your kid will eventually grow up, and your family gives you gifts much more often than normal NPCs.

I think, though, that the entire reason to get married is so you can open the demon door that requires you to propose to someone in front of it.

Not only can you get married, you can have a second secret family elsehwere.  I have heard you can do this, have not attempted.  Hell, my hero ain't got TIME for companionship so far.

Your child will stop being a baby eventually, but I don't know about other NPCs. Hell, I don't even know about your child.

Operation: Buy Bowerstone Before Going To the Spire is progressing nicely. Since my fiveminutely income exceeds eight thousand gold, I expect to own every house in Old Town within the hour.
