I was always thinking...
I have seen on several posts the whole "Fyoras are cute" thing. I don't know what to make of it, though , I kind of do (half think) that the fyora from the GF2 cutscenes, is fairly cute. (every young shaper's dream is to create the cutest fyora, woohoo!)
I don't know, maybe im not alone, or maybe I'm just a freak. (Absolutely true on former). Or, maybe its a similar thing with kobolds from NWN. Anyway, I'd like some input, well.... maybe.
^.^

Are any of those Fyoras Nicothodes?

I voted for the middle-of-the-road option.

More to the point, do any of them carry pencils?

While not ugly, they are not cute. Rather, they are sleek, scaly, dangerous to the unwary, and smell strongly of sulfur. However, Dikiyoba also finds them to be loyal minions.

Fyoras are mostly just cheap and easy to create. If they last long enough then they grow on you sort of like scaly fungus.

Not cute enough to keep them from being absorbed and made into something better. Something cuter, ever?

Good. I'm glad we agree.
Fyora don't make stupid little noises when you talk to them.
See, the colors aren't close and the Charmander is clearly a fire hazard. What are we teaching these kids?

I like fyoras because they're easy to fillet when I no longer need them. And the best part is that because of their fire-breathing ability, they're already cooked! :D

(Now that I think about it, I could go for a drayk steak right about now :) ;) ...)

Yes, but then again....no one makes any kind of noise when you talk to them...
Lack of voice actors and such. ;)

For all you know, Fyoras run around yelling "Fyora! Fyora! Fyoooo!"

Are Fyoras Cute?

Not anymore, if you've seen the new graphic.

I keep a Cryoa on board for a long time when I use creations in G4. It was doing 80+ damage with its ice breath far into the game and hit level thirty-something before it was finally sacrificed for something more gratifyingly deadly.

The proper term would probably be "scaly".

The adjective to best describe the sensation the original phrase induces for me is "slimy."

Looks,,,, like I am not ENTIRELY alone on this...
I have not seen the dread ugly GF4 fyora, and looking at the screenshots, they still look the same. I guess I did not specify WHICH fyora I was talking about, so (some random and boring apology). Also, when taking comparison pictures, why didn't anyone take any screenshots from GF2, they're all over.
Or, maybe I am just completely insane... (resists temptation to indulge in maniacal laughter, despite its apparent stress relieving effect)

New fyora graphic. (The one in the Rivergate Keep screenshot must be a placeholder graphic. It's one of the earliest screenshots.)

Also, the fyora in G2 isn't the best.

(Dikiyoba modified the eye, but everything else is untouched.)

Jeff started replacing graphics about 2/3 of the way through beta testing. The fyora is one of the few graphics that was changed so all earlier testing games using it are no longer playable with the new graphic. I don't know what types of error may occur if you rewrite the scripts to replace it with an old one.

The new one has more of a resemblance to the raptors in Jurassic Park.

Do not meddle in the affairs of Drayaks, for you are crunchy and taste good with Ketchup. :P

(I hope I remembered that quote correctly.)
