Hello!

We have found an issue where if you give a character a nickname and then remove them from your party right after they could be flagged for deletion and then deleted next time the game saved.

The fix for this is going out in the next patch however there is a workaround you can do:

For the time being do not give out nicknames AFTER you have created a character. During character creation you can change their name. For now avoid giving existing characters nicknames.

We apologize for any issues this has caused. If you have been affected by this please reach out to support@Obsidian.net!

So THAT'S what happened to my party! Well it's nice to know at least. Flounder already offered to help me get back the missing cards at least, once he has a free moment.

Shoot us an email I can rebuild characters.

Any news if this nickname problem is still valid or is it remedied? Just wanted to check out Until starting new croup.
