... What it will be like if Gaia artists start to involve Gaia NPCs in EI/REI?

We all see Gaia NPCs in the CI/RIG items, where we get to see either themselves or alternative universe of themselves. Yet, the only EI/REI we ever had that has a Gaia NPC involved is Timmy (with guest appearance by Lanzer.) Now it's understandable that some people were upset about Timmy due to what happened to Timmy (which in truth, we the people made the decision to turn him into an EI. >>; ) as well as unable to find good poses to use on the avi. And it's understand if people don't want their EI/REI to have Gaia NPCs involved too, fearing to have the same experience as Timmy.

However, for the past two or three months, we see EI/REI involves from growing items into story-theme items. So it got me curious of what would happen if Gaia artist decide to add Gaia NPCs into EI/REI.

Now I dunno about you, but to me, I think it will be interesting to see how it goes. I will love to see an REI where we get to see the daily life of Ivan (I bet there are some of you want to have a "Ride the rogue copy machine" pose) or an EI that involves the adventure of Kiki the Kitty (I'm curious how Kiki and Coco's adventures go with RoRo the Robodog. Of course, I'm also pretty sure some will like to see the adventures of Ultra Satan too.)

So GCD, do you like to see some Gaia NPCs get involved in EI/REI? If so or not, why?
What sort of characters do you wish to see get involved in the EI/REI?
What kind of story do you wish the character to be involved in?

Yes, I'm aware this idea should be related to the Site Feedback, requesting to be made. However, I think we Gaians should discuss about this since this is similar to Timmy the EI item.

Well... Considering the characters introduced in EI/REI's are automatically gaia npcs... Albeit very very minor background NPCs but NPCs nonetheless, I'm having difficulty wrapping my head around the discussion topic. I'm guessing you mean pre-established NPC's?

I'm not sure I'd really want our well known NPC's playing a role in our EI's. Most of them are mundane and ordinary... which would be pretty boring for an EI. Though we did have two other instances of NPC involvement- one was the EI inspired by Crazy Pete's ramblings (something Island Adventure...), and Rosamund's Revenge was about the princess from the Saint Ciel: Agape story. Both were kinda cool. But I really can't see Moira hanging out in the fantasy stories these items seem to take place in.

You probably mean NPC's already established in Gaia since the characters in them are considered NPC's.

It would be awesome to see some EI/REI with, for example, Logan, Ian, etc. I would love a Logan one.

I feel like a RIG with shop NPCs would give us item results of shop-items on loss.

That's not a good feeling to think about.

It is a great idea. Not only could we as Gaian's get some much needed background and character development, but also Items based around our favorite NPC's, AND Gaia could make some easy cash off of us. It benefits everyone, unless you don't like the way they go with the character building.

It could present shop backgrounds, along with perhaps what the NPC's homes look like in background form, various clothing and handheld items, and even the elusive curved backwings that Ruby has on that everyone imagined we'd get, but didn't.

There is a large opportunity that they purposely skip out on with this, simply because I feel they want all characters to remain as flexible as possible. This allows for them to pretty much do whatever they please story wise, to some extent, with whomever they please, whenever they please.
