  • Black Isle Bastard!

It would be nice to have Josh do an update (or portion of one) on this topic.  I stumbled on this in the comment section of FIG.  Giving a little publicity to this initiative could go a long way towards getting some additional $8 additions and fully explaining the initiative from Obsidian's perspective.  Maybe they have and I missed it.

 

The fact that getting a forum badge is completely divorced from financing the pirate crew is a source of confusion to me. If it was one and the same would that not be a stronger initiative?

Hey guys,

 

I just wanted to clear some things up. This was a request by the community to have something similar to the Obsidian Order back from the KickStarter campaign. So I did everything I could to make it a reality, especially since it was a badge that was requested instead of having another title.

 

We agreed that the forum badge and the crowdfunding would be completely separate since we will be already putting the Black Isle into the game. 

 

I apologies for any of the confusion or miscommunication.

Thanks Aarik (cool way to spell your name, BTW).

 

Yeah, I was very confused when I first posted here - I thought the BiB badge somehow contributed to the "Fluffy's initiative" here.  Over time, I figured it out, but it was darn confusing.  Having these things named the same is unfortunate.  I'd bet there are many folks who backed the $8 badge who think it's somehow related to the community initiative here.

 

Great job with all the Q&A's and director's commentaries!  I've really enjoyed watching them.  :yes:

Yes many people already have their unique Obsidian Order title. And many people actually like the default titles of the forum.

That's why we went for the badge instead.
