In the Avernum series, I think the dervish, bladesman, wizard, rakshasi and drake all have good graphics. E3/BoE had some of my favorite graphics though: dark wyrm, drake lord, wizard, empire archer, lich, kazi-- how can you argue with that?

The Drakons in Geneforge, particularily the Unbound.

The Alien Slime in Avernum, and also the Drake Lords or whatever they're called.

Nethergate... the Romans and Celts look very unique to the game.

Subterra... Block of Dirt #31,427 is definitely a work of art.

And of course, Richard White himself. Of course, after a saw him, I died two yesterdays from tomorrow.

In Avernum, the Vahnatai are particularly fascinating. There are also many interesting varieties of golems. And you can't go wrong with those Avernum dragons!

The Exile graphics in general look brighter and more vibrant than the Avernum graphcis, although sometimes the 2D postures were distractingly silly.

My favorite graphics from Exile:
-Empire Dervish
-Troglodyte Khazi
-Erika

From Avernum:
-Vahnatai Warrior
-Slimes, especially when they disintegrate upon death

The dragons are my favorite in Avernum. Speaking of dragons one of my favorite graphics was the custom Khoth that was in the third Blades of Exile scenario, Zakahzi (sp?) Run.

Erika wasn't in Avernum 4, after the whole dying incident that happened at the end of Exile 3...

Unique characters are usually the best. Hawthorn and Prazac from the old Exiles were awesome, but not so much Garzahd. I always liked to imagined he looked like the guy in the picture at the beginning of Avernum 2, not the black robed bearded man or guy with the cane. Vahnatai Lords have a pretty good graphic in both games.

Nobody seems to answer to my latest question so i'll ask again: how can i change the graphic of my characters with the ones of the Vahnatai for example?

If you did it for GF, it works much the same way in A4. The graphics are in Avernum 4 Files, and the one you want is called "Avernum 4 PC Graphics."

I suppose Solberg is better because he actually survived.

Shame on me, I failed to mentioned Exile's demon golem.
