If we all wanted only dark, we'd be playing Aetolia.
Jester breaks limbs with puppets, not immersion.
If we only wanted dark, we probably more than likely wouldn't be playing any IRE game... Every single one of them had silly things that "broke immersion of the game" .. As Calira said, they don't really do that. They're just as much a part of an immersive world as anything else in the game. Court jesters and the like go back... Extremely far in history.
Would the balloons be more palatable if you had options in balloon animal?
Firecracker battlerage is one of my favourite lines in Achaea.
The balloons though, ew. I remember the class being released and even the history/nostalgia behind suicide mice wasn't enough to get me past the cringe factor of balloons - I couldn't bring myself to make a newb even to play with the lowbie skills.
