The Elin NPCs you meet in game are written childishly.
Also there's that one NPC who explicitly tells you that Elin have the same lifespans as humans, which I understand is a blatant contradiction of established lore.
Someone screwed up royally. Either the Korean writers, or EME's translators.
Welcome to the world of retconning.
Normally when people retcon they'd also change the race description on their main site. Which would be evidence for an intentional change. What I described is just stupidity.
It is all pretty stupid.
I'd like us to compare games for a moment. The Witcher 2 has full nudity. You see a girl's full naked body from head to toe within like the first 5-10 mins of the game. Then we take Tera, it has undetailed nipples on some statues in Velika... Both games rated M.
KT may have altered it as well. But still. A mess is a mess. Difinitive answers need to be decided on.
Personally I think making them genderless beings incapable of romance would be kind of sad... And really hard to RP. Might as well RP a robot at that point. Elin/Popori are flesh and blood. Why not allow them flesh and blood relationships? Why leave the topic this wide open? Are they just afraid to answer this? Are they afraid if they say they do have romantic/physical relationships that people will freak out over pedophilia/beatiality and if they said they were genderless unromantic beings then no one would be able to relate to them and thus cause an uproar from people (like me) who think that flesh and blood beings should have flech and blood relationships?
Also as for the Popori there is one in Pora Elinu who has his eyes set on an Elin. Don't believe me? Go to Pora Elinu and speak to the Popos yourself hehe
Wether they breed or not isn't really the issue I have, just wether they love and can have an emotional AND physical relationship.
As for Popori, there are no female models for them (Other than Elin in the game files listed under Popori_F) and the only way they are female is by the players imagination. Not actual lore.
Nowhere have I seen any lore staing there are female popori or male Elin nor do they appear in game (unless you imagine some of the popori are female but srsly do they look female to any of you?)
I am mainly adjitated by people treating my Elin as a child in RP when I neither act that way in RP nor does lore dictate that I am in fact a child. The lore does state however that Elin have a dark personality despite their youthful appearance. Don't judge a book by it's cover, I do not play a child, nor do I wish to be treated as such, Elin are adults to wether anyone wants to believe it or not :P
Elin and Popori are the same race actually... The westernised version just seperated them for stupid reasons involving people possibly getting upset over pedophilia and beastiality issues. Nieth of wich should apply as Elin are full grown despite their appearance suggesting otherwise and Popori are not animals in the slightest despite the wester rewrite. So the princesses were likely fathered by a Popori in high standing.
Rolled a Slayer named Miyari to solo. She is looking for a guild if anyone is looking for a RPPvPer for their Vanarchy run.
I am an RPPvPer. Seeing as Tera lacks a RPPvP realm (And yes I went to the unnoficial RPPvP server Basilisk Crag and efter waiting in that server's cue forever I found no trace of RP but plenty of grief for it) I am looking for a Vanarch to be to throw my support behind. If im' not mistaken certain Vanarch events involve PvP and some Vanarch seats cannot be obtained without it. I am offering my services as a RPPvPer to any Vanarch looking for a little backbone in their PvP force. My current main is an Elin warrior named Viri though since I am leveling Viri with a friend I may make a solo main to speed up the process of reaching 60 so I will be of better use.
Please respond with any offers or questions you may have.
I just dont get how without an RP-PvP server you lot can take it upon yourselves to designate an already established Server to be an Rp-PvP server. Vote all you like to make it your home but know that its not an RP server and never will be... go ruin some other server with your nonsense or better yet stick to pve its what youre good at... /emote
You're... some kind of simpleton, aren't you?
Also I believe the hair features were already supposed to be in the game but just weren't put in for the western early release in time so thats why it's comming out first...
