This post is part of The 30 Days or ARPil event created by Pizza Maid of Pizzamaid.moe. You can find more information about it in here and the 30 questions here. If you are interested on seeing who is participating on the event, there is a block to the right with all blogs that are part of it too. Let me know if I forgot someone or put someone in there by mistake. 🙂
All my answers will be about my character Rakuno, my ratonga monk in Everquest 2. From this point on it will be him doing all the talk!
Question 14: How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?
Having fur I usually have more tolerance to cold temperatures than most races. On the other side of the coin, I usually have more trouble with heat. When I have to deal with extreme temperatures I try to focus as much as I can, control my chi in a way that the temperatures won't bring me down. It is the only way I can get through places like Lavastorm without fainting after five steps or going completely naked.
There was this one time where I had to infiltrate some bad guys. My contact was able to put an illusion so I looked like one of the dwarves that worked for them. I don't know if this was part of the illusion or just some psychological thing but I actually felt like I didn't have fur. It felt cold even though I was wearing clothes proper for the freezing temperatures. Honestly, after that I experience, I really have no idea how you furless people can go through life without wearing heavier clothes. I guess you just are used to the cold.
