  2. Wow. You're still going. I'm aware that my defense being fake doesn't help my defense. My defense wasn't a defense. You won the CNN debate by default because it wasn't real. Hell, you're misrepresenting fake arguments. How is it even possible that I admit the whole thing is a joke and I still come out as least ridiculous? I doubled down because of the way you acted, not because of CNN. My "dogged criticism"! Intentional ommission isn't forgetting. I haven't followed the US primaries at all, I've been too busy. I don't care whether Bernie or Warren get the nom because as far as I can tell

  4. Forget about Bhaal or Sarevok, the true God(dess) of Murder is Lara Croft: I ain't even gonna lie, I'm generally not into the killing portions of these games, but when she rose out of the water with the flames behind her and vengeance in her eyes, I was thinking "Aww yeah, I'm about to murder the **** out of some fools!" And I did.

  6. yes. The untargetability of knock-up lasts for one second, and then they spend one second standing up, for two seconds total out of commission. Yes, you can't do anything to them while they're untargetable, but it means an extra second to gear up for an attack or let a resource recover. You can see me using this on the un-interruptible Oracle of Wael as part of my ultimate run below. (note - as a plus, this worked especially great for a tactician because while they're untargetble they don't count as being in combat, so a tactician (or a party with a tactician) against a solo perception-immune

  7. Well I wasn't really demoted because I was never promoted. I started out here as a political hire. I was the only veteran to apply and was hired for a job I wasn't really qualified for because hiring veterans is a priority. So I started out as a glorified number cruncher auditing public works projects for cost overruns and materials compliance. After two years of demonstrating that I could see lightning and hear thunder, and possessed an advanced understanding of mathematics and data analytics I started to find myself with much more interesting work. Last year I was managing my own projects. S

  9. I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned the Kickstarter scam par excellence: Star Citizen. Which, funny story, is not a scam at all but rather a case study in how crowdfunding success can completely bog down a project. Ironically, I'm sure it will be a wildly successful commercial product... at some point in the 2030s. In any case, how many actual demonstrable scams have come through Kickstarter? Seems one of those words that people throw around so often that it's become almost meaningless.

  12. Again, there's an elephant in the room regarding Deadfire's dip in sales that no perception of quality can account for, I feel. The dip the franchise saw in performance wasn't a 10-20% or a 50% even, or a lack of continued interest or whatnot. From what I understand, the first game in the series has already sold about 2 million copies whilst the new one has struggled to make it to 400k. That's a 70-80% drop right there, and one for a game that, despite assumptions of the contrary, is generally rated quite positively across all user aggregate websites out there, including a 7.8 metascore, an 84

  16. were weird and fun for us to get to kill tob Gromnir, but it bothered us how our player character in the game had to be the idjit getting used by melissan while our namesake were the one who were successful thwarting melisasan and uncovering her plot until we show up in saradush. due to limits o' bg2-style dialogue choices, we must needs treat the Gromnir npc like cassandra. as such we had a moment o' remorse (brief) before we got to the killing and l007ing o' npc Gromnir. @Malcador shouldn't cause much practical trouble... unless you look dangerous (i.e. dark complected) and/or are

  18. I don't think she can blame you for that since 95% of people have the fungus that develops into thrush. She's probably had it for a while but noticed it now? I first got it when I had an infection in the achilles tendon and got antibiotics for it. And I'll have you know that the first time I kissed someone I was 29 I wish I could get demoted and keep the pay I have. It's frustrating as hell to have a metric tonne of responsibility but not enough authority to make proper changes, it's taken away almost all of my motivation to do a good job, and start to halfass it like everyone

  20. Damn thanks a ton! I'm actually using the Devil of Caroc Breastplate on the Herald, but I'll try switching it out for something else, as well as trying the Patinated Plate on the Streetfighter. I was using the Bloody links earlier too, but it was so ugly I couldn't do it lol. Maybe I'll have to suck it up though. I'm so used to the defensive system from PoE1, where armor was way less important and many characters fought naked, so thanks for helping explain how it works in Deadfire as well. I'll definitely spend more time looking into the new mechanics in Deadfire. Also I just wanna s

  26. Huh? It works with every melee weapon attack no matter if it's your main weapon or not. It even works with "bash" from shields like T's Palm and also with Riposte and Offensive Parry. But it doesn't repeat the whole execution of an ability (like repeating a Full Attack) - it only repeats the single hit roll it procs off of. S for example with Sun & Moon it doesn't repeat both attack rolls of both flail heads but only the one it got triggered off. Same with WotEP: it only repeats the attack roll on the initial target but not the AoE cone. Maybe I misunderstood you though. Did you mean t

  27. we call those days "summer" in ca. last summer weren't near as bad as were the previous year, but we nevertheless had weeks where the smoke were so thick the sun were not visible save for a couple hours before and after noon, and even then it were a lurid bloody-red... much like our perpetual irritated eyes. one o' our cars, which we were parking in the driveway in violation o' our cc&rs (shhh, don't tell local security) would daily become covered with a greasy film o' ash. ash is s'posed to be dry and powdery, like the stuff in your fireplace or in the bottom o' your weber grill, yes? u

  31. In practice I find that enemy AI doesn't do this a lot. If you're able to get the enemy AI back onto a tank via some mechanism, it's sticky for a while. I don't know what the internal workings of the AI is, but I have to imagine there's some sort of internal cooldown on changing targets. So there's that. It would be extremely annoying otherwise. On the topic of the enemy AI going after squishy targets - it's a double-edged sword. That's why rogues have so many escape abilities, and also why you can metagame this by taking advantage of this fact. It would be way worse if the AI enemy was

  33. Welcome, welcome, welcome, Concrete Monster! I'm glad to see you posting! I'm sorry I wasn't around to greet you when you entered the challenge. Also, please accept my apologies for the response delay to your recent post. It's good to meet you and it's good to see people active. Best of luck to Elanna! A Priest of Eothas is a compelling choice from an RP perspective, in my opinion. I look forward to future updates, Best, A. PS: I'm almost ready to start posting on my solo rogue. I'll likely start today or tomorrow!

  38. https://www.nexusmods.com/pillarsofeternity2/mods/366 This mod offers a choice of the 8 voice sets from the first game that can be used alongside those already in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire! The installation is quite simple*, the zips are set up to extract all the necessary files to the correct directories. And won't require overwriting any of the default audio files to work. While there are some lines unique to Deadfire - such as acknowledging loot picking up & equipping rare loot, and rare selections lines for every voice set - ideally these should all sound quite cl

  39. I'd say spiritual needs are definitely a thing. Asking 'why we are here' is a big part of what separates us from all the other lifeforms kicking around on this planet. The 'what' is a lot more complicated.

  40. How come? Her Animal Companion is even immune to engagement. You can retreat the bird at any time. As I asked: wouldn't Vengeful Grief + Revive Companion be a good thing? The bonus might last ('cause it has a 15 sec base duration) even though the malus is gone because the AC is back up again? If you have a SC Paladin in the party: even more so... Edit: nope... Vengeful Grief gets removed as soon as you revive your companion.
