There I was kicking rats, getting my weapons caked in their blood and brains, when I asked myself:
Where’s my blood?
I mean, sure, Sienna asks that to herself from time to time, but what if we saw some scars and gashes on ourselves and our companions, when the hurt came “hurtling” towards us?
I was thinking about something along the lines of the face of the ancient “doomguy”, where when you got hit, and your health went spiraling down… So did your looks…
What I’m saying is: why not give some actual visual feedback to phrases like “Elf you’ve looked better… A lot better” or “I suppose that’s my blood!”. I think it would look nice overall… Give a visual measure of how bloody a mess your team has gotten itself into.
Besides, who wants to see a zealot, hanging for dear life to his ever fleeting temporary HPs, with a clean robe? I mean, really? Not a spot on it? He should be a heap of scars and bloody gashes, propelled forward by sheer hamfisted will!
I got no clue on how much work would go into adding something like that to the game though.
