I do not like Bioware's horned Qunari designs for reasons you can read about at length In the comments on this strip over at my website.

Just feels like a sloppy forced retcon I guess.

Timely scheduled Monday updates on the site.

I so agree with this.
Dragon Age used to be that all races had subtle differences from the human race. I suppose to give an atmosphere of realism. Sten looks exactly like a big human, but it's when you start to pay attention that you notice the purple eyes and the slightly pointed ears. I liked that.
But now it's like GIANT MANGA CHARACTER HORNS. I'm surprised they do not have cat ears....

Then again, it does make them seem less like just another albino giant.

I laughed so hard when i seen this. I agree very much..seems cheep of Bioware to put a new look on a race that was already presented hornless. But Sten is "special" along with the 50 other Qunari merc's and that merchant in Awakening....

btw love your comics, keep them coming!

Yeah, it just feels like a terribly sloppy retcon. Oh, yes, I'm sure that Sten's entire group and every mercenary qunari we saw in the first game either was born without horns or ripped them off. Uh huh. :P

you do know that the hornless Qunari like sten are the ones sent out to protect the borders or for political roles

Yeah, I've read what Bioware's said on it, doesn't make it feel any less forced and sloppy or make the legacy-of-kain-disney-gargoyle-dreanei-tiefling redesign any less generic.

true but now it adds a lil variety to it because the qunari were barbarians, but they were just bigger humans. This way they really are their own race and we will see more variety too the enemies we will be fighting when that game comes out

Meh, my only real complaint is that the whole "Non-horned = special snowflake" thing. If it was the other way around, I wouldn't have such a big issue.
They kinda look like mini ogres now, though :/
