In Gothic the Orcs are the enemies and in Risen there are no orcs. Also there are only Humans in the world of Risen. The only other sentient species is are the gnomes but those are treated like thieving intelligent animals most of time.Karavision said:I find it strange that people get mad about the lack of diversity in games that have never allowed any type of character customization and have always been narrative driven to the point of being fucking movies, like Assassin's Creed but have never even raised an eyebrow at the Risen or Gothic series. Considering how weak the narrative is in these two series, there is little reason that you should not be able to play a fucking orc, let alone a woman.
It's a world of pirates for Risen and a bloody prison for Gothic, a woman in those cases would be rape bait.
Also the main character this time isn't the mc of Risen 1 + 2 but another one. Only 2 of the islands and 1 dlc one are somewhat recycled all others are new.
For the synchro... well the german ones is good but then again this is a german developer.
Also the main antagonist this time is the titan lord of death and why he did steal the mcs soul has its reasons which are revealed near the end.
Also for the characters of your crew, one is witch doctor which wears tribal attire and bones, another an annoying would be mage, another looks either like a disinherited gent or bald emo knight depending one how far you are with the story, then there is the thieving gnome, evil ghost inquisitor and the mcs sister, also a parrot.
