What was he?
Looks like a developer's self insert.
He was Dave Attell, host of Insomniac
>What was he?
the devil. why was this so hard for you to figure out anon? are you thick?
Some sort of demon
cock demon, he wanted to suck jerry's cock
Dimm as in dumb
he was Gaunter O'Dumb
since his name is a ripoff of walter o'dim from the dark tower series he's probably some evil magic man thing
t. never played the witcher games
A demon who appeared after the conjunction of the spheres.
Pretty sure this is the right answer. He's from another world, right?
All monsters are.
Didn't humans also show up in a dimensional merge?
yeah its the elves world originally, but human supremacist groups spread fake stories about how the elves arrived there instead
he's a cross between the Faustian devil and some regular demon
you're not supposed to think too hard on it, he doesn't fit very snugly with the rest of lore
this guy threw me off the series. everytime he showed up i was left wondering if i had met him before, and who he was. such a fucking boring looking character, i see what theyre going for, but in a game with about a thousand other random NPCs you cant interact with that look just like him made it confusing.
He has a unique face model though? You having a stroke little buddy?
His point is that the dude looks plain as fuck and too similar to random npcs
Yeah, that's the point.
So did the devil really turn his heart to stone the moment you made the pact? That's kind of what I got from the story.
Because then none of it was really his fault.
He became unable to feel, not unable to think.
He should have realized that killing iris' father and confining her to that house with 3 unholy servants wasn't a good idea.
He chose to spread all that misery and suffering. He might not have chosen the exact manner of his immortality, but he chose how to use it.
That's a good point. I kind of understood that the devil compelled him to do those things, but maybe it's better to assume he just took away his capacity to feel remorse.
Iirc the only negative trait they mention Olgierd had before he made that pact is that he was jealous of his brother.
>Olgierd had before he made that pact is that he was jealous of his brother.
That's the wrong way around.
Vlodomir(?) was jealous of Olgierd.
It's been a while, I remember him thinking that his family favored his older brother over Olgierd, that's why he resented him.
Ehhh not him, but I think it was the opposite. Olgierd always tells you his little brother Vlodomir was brave and skilled (to honor him after death), but in reality, Vlodomir was a cowardly retard that was jealous of Olgierd.
Olgierd is the older brother too.
then i had it completely the other way around, thanks
Gaunter didn't do anything to Olgeird other than make him immortal. He always had a "heart of stone", he was a murdering highwayman even before he was immortal. Gaunter just gave him enough to let him ruin his own life and see the consequences of his actions. Anyone who would willingly make a deal that involves sacrificing your own brother is already an asshole at heart.
You have to admit, putting him in the main game as a seemingly inconsequential character - and one of the first ones you meet - was pretty good writing.
they could have put the dlc in the main game then.
>who was that guy?
>pay more to find out!
I completely forgot about this guy by the time I got to the DLC.
No, he looks like a an npc, shitty character design and clothing, they made up that shit along the way, stop pretending otherwise
all that tells me is dlc was being developed before release, an abhorrent practice which has become standard
expansion packs have been a thing since forever
yeah and they used to wait until after a game was released before making them
witcher 3 came out with gamebreaking bugs yet they were working on dlc before release
Based retard. All they did was pick a random throwaway NPC and make him a big deal in DLC. They could have done the same thing with that girl with a big ass in the tutorial area. The one with the little herb shop. You know who I'm talking about.
Herb shop lady will be the main antagonist in TW4 after she finds out Ciri killed her soldier dad in self defense in Novigrad
Nah Gaunter gets way too much focus in the opening to be just a random throwaway NPC, he's got a unique high quality model and voice actor for a guy you have 1 conversation with. That Herbalist should have come back at some point though for the same reason, White Orchard has a lot of effort put into it that doesn't always get reflected in the rest of the game when it comes to that sort of detail.
Dude gets even less focus than herb shop lady and the Polish Gaunter voice actor voices several other characters in the game. English one voiced a lot of randoms in TW2
>They could have done the same thing with that girl with a big ass in the tutorial area
Shame they didn't. She was criminally underutilized.
If that was TW1, Geralt would fuck her in every possible hole
>All they did was pick a random throwaway NPC and make him a big deal in DLC
The first time you meet him he disappears magically like he does in the DLC. They knew what they were doing with him from the start.
>and one of the first ones you meet
Where? I’m on the bloody baron quest and have never seen this guy. Does he show up later?
he shows up in White Orchard
Lawful evil fucker
>master of the universe
>looks like a serbian street vendor
A former rave kid, failed actor and a wannabe pua.
The points where roads cross are fucking plagued with spooky shit. At least if you're not American where the intersection-based planning would mean you'd have to have a spooky haunting every twenty metres or something.
Anyway I digress, where two roads cross is some spooky shit. The English have a thing about it, the Scottish too (though both have mostly forgotten, but there's legends like the crossing at long melford) and the balkan states can't fucking shut up about their crossroads, in which devils are the feature rather than spooks.
Meet at a crossroad and the devil will come to bargain. He will promise to make the impossible possible and probably ruin your life. The more djinn-like clauses aren't usually part of that, they'll usually just fuck you up for asking for stupid shit.
So who is Gaunter O'dimm? I'm seriously asking I don't play video games.
If you don't play vidya, you can youtube it
I only read screenshot LPs. Preferably in the original shitpost.
Shame. It's very watchable, like a movie
A super demon/otherwordly entity/god
Just a powerful 4 dimensional bro who gets his kicks messing with the local ants (read:mortals)
the master of mirrors
its Totally Not Satan
Gaunter is literally the Devil of the Witcher world.
Not some random demon or evil spirit, we're talking about almost God tier (and God might have abandoned that world, assuming he ever cared for it or existed at all in the first place) incarnation of evil. Although he's clearly a reflection of evil commited by humanity rather than the cause of it, and his deals are always honest.
>Hearts of Stone, an expansion to RPG game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015), has a main storyline heavily inspired by the legend.
Well there it is
owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome
Stay up late, Insomniac!
Fuck this, I'm at the Temple of Lilvani with my fucking hands up. I'm not starting my-fucking-self, you fucking stupid bitch. This stupid fucking justice, all fucking righteous fucking demon, O'Dimm, is doing this shit. You fucking demon! I swear to fucking god I'm gonna find out-
