Yesterday’s accidental capture of the Bluff icon made me wonder about the other two too.
(Two too? Tu Tu? Bleh. Technically correct yet still looking so wrong).
Specifically, what are the Intimidate and Diplomacy icons? Stepping aside from the grammar of it all, still there are screenshots to take and closeups to arrange. And so I did. And now it is blindingly obvious that indeed, I am completely oblivious. Obviously oblivious.
- Of course the Bluff icon is a face playing poker. So is the skill icon!
- Of course the Diplomacy icon is a handshake. So is the skill icon!
- And no, saddest of all, Intimidate is not the middle finger after all. It is two faces, one large one that is overpowering the smaller one. I was missing the faces and only seeing the space in between them (which still does look a little middle-fingery). So. Two faces. Of course, because that is what the skill icon shows as well
Bluff, Diplomacy and Intimidate, seen in their native habitat
But anyway, on with the screenshots. I suspect that the blinding obviousness of it all will strike home rather quickly, at least for both of you who did not know all of this already.
Bluff, from yesterday’s article
Diplomacy. Not the clearest image but clear enough. And what an angry hill giant!
Intimidate. The key is the two faces, not the middle-fingery space between them
Three usage icons
All look the same as their skill
And that pretty much puts the whole topic to rest. I think.
Unless you have more to say?
