30 day mass effect challenge, day 20: in which I’d like to visit this place …

Despite my deep and abiding love for the krogan, I would be lying if I said that I would ever want to visit Tuchanka. It just seems … unpleasant, even if there are secret lush and green areas now. Although having my own pet varren follow me around and beg for pyjak meat is almost enough for me to change my mind (I absolutely adored Urz in ME2).

But since I am a fleshy creature that is not entirely cut out for the harshness of radioactive rubble, I would definitely have to choose Illium.

I absolutely love the color palette Bioware developers chose for Nos Astra, the capitalist’s wet dream of a capital city. It reminds me of a futuristic Miami Vice.

Now, I wouldn’t necessarily want to spend all of my time in Nos Astra. According to the Wiki page, Illium is a hot garden world, and cities have to exist in bubbles if they are close to the surface or near the equator. Like, this is why I love Bioware so much. We never see those cities, but dammit, we’re gonna know they exist because of all the codex entries.
