  1. How let down do you want to be? I find the military fantasy genre particularly good at that.

  4. You can always tell when military fiction (science or otherwise) was written by someone who was never in the military. Even if they got the details mostly right. Compare Joe Halderman's Forever War & John Scalzi's Old Man's War. Both are good examples of military sci fi and both are good stories. But you could tell Halderman was a vet and Scalzi wasn't.

  5. I have some insight into this that's perhaps a little different than Lady Rojas. As a recovering nihilist, I will say that I spend an inordinate amount of time sucking down adult beverages. By that, I mean ETOH. Okay, fair enough. That, in and of itself, should be grounds to take my posts with a grain of salt. However, I do what I gotta do in situations where I gotta do it. Doesn't make me important and sure as hell doesn't make me a hero. I'm just a guy doing a job. However, there's more to life than doing a job. I've become disciplined so that I can ruthlessly cut myself off from th

  6. Hello, not sure if this has already been talked about but I had an idea when it comes to building. I was getting my base ready for the upcoming update and wanted to replace my normal grass walls with sturdy walls. The process of replacing each wall with the risk of destroying a build and loosing materials is getting old. I was just thinking that a feature could be added or looked into where for example if you have a regular grass wall, instead of destroying the wall completely, you could just add a wood stem to it making it a sturdy wall, saving a lot of time. Obviously this wouldn't work with

  7. Does anyone else feel like it would be beneficial to allow "Blueprint Ghosting"? For example placing two blueprints inside of each other then building both. I played quite a bit of The Forest and was able to achieve some pretty creative solutions like this. I also think it would help to be able to create some custom size objects like foundations, walls, floors, etc. One example I can think of all the top of my head is that you take a scaffolding blueprint w/grass floor , ghost a smoothie maker through the top and presto, you could then have a counter with a kitchen sink on it .

  8. I'd love it if the Threat Detector could give some sort of notice as to which insect I am being threatened by, or even a directional indicator so I know where the threat is coming from? I guess adding a mini on screen "radar" indicator with red dots for insects would give away too much.

  11. Essence Interrupter can be bought very early in the game. So I would focus on that. Classes that are front loaded in terms of ranged offense and work well in the early game (at least if paired with a fitting second class): Ranger (Marked Prey, Wounding Shot), all Rogues (Sneak Attack, Crippling Strike), Bleak Walker (Black Flames of Devotion), Helwalker (Helscar, MIG bonus, Mortification of the Soul). A Devoted/Bleak Walker is more suited for melee since both classes gain a lot of defensive capability (which would be kind of wasted) and most of their good offensive abilites work at

  13. I also posted this suggestion but I do agree. I think a QOL feature would be the ability to upgrade walls from one level to the next instead of tearing down what you already had and replacing it with the upgraded building piece.

  15. Good morning fellow RPG lovers, it pains me to say that, despite going on a long search, I could not find a one-piece inspired mod for this game (it is perfect for it and here's why): " Deadfire focuses on seafaring and island exploration via a ship. Crews can also be hired to look over them and assist in ship combat. Class-based gameplay returns, with each class having at least four optional sub-classes with unique skills. A new feature in Deadfire compared to the original are sub-classes. " Looking at the overall gameplay, it appears to have already checked in, with one-piece prerequis

  20. Late deliveries, lost/stolen items, deliveries to wrong address (some times even wrong country) plague all mail carriers delivery services and courier services all over the world. But cases where such problems occur are less than one of ten thousand at least if service is actually able to continue business for decades. As USPS handles almost 500 million deliveries per day, there are late deliveries, lost/stolen deliveries, and deliveries to wrong addresses each day, as it is absolute impossibility not have human errors, broken systems, computer/database errors or just bad luck in that amo

  22. As someone that has used USPS before the Trump administration and that for some ****ing reason mail is a political issue. I can say that Honest Government Ad should change their name to Leftist Shill Propaganda. USPS is at best late, at medium your item gets stolen at worst it gets delivered broken....and it is the wrong address. But yeah, lets keep funding them even though everyone has Prime.

  23. By and large the difference between a console and desktop GPU is similar to that between a desktop and laptop version of a GPU- lower clocks, better efficiency; and with the proviso that the console 'laptop' has a highly customised SoC type set up. Even much maligned Vega is extremely efficient, when run in APUs or undervolted/ underclocked and may actually be the best selling AMD arch ever due to being used so long in APUs. The problem with Vega was that it was a dual purpose arch with professional/ compute/ science uses and emphasised raw compute power over effective gaming power. In the end

  28. Greetings all! As far as long load issues go, we are indeed aware of them and are looking to. It is pretty difficult to hammer down the exact cause, but we do know some contributing factors seem to be long playtimes, and having more than 10 saves appear to give players issue. Deleting down to a number below that has resolved for some, and always feel free to submit a ticket to us with your computer specs to help us gather that sweet data to help find a resolution!

  30. ^Bill Clinton turned the Democratic Party into the Ronald Reagan Party though, to try to outflank Bush on the right....and it worked. I know it's probably small potatoes but Clinton's role in cementing corporate rule in both parties is significant. Joe Biden is literally Ronald Reagan. Also relevant: Daily reminder that the Republican Party seems to have shed it's "small government, fiscal responsibility" projection since Reagan and is now the full blown "Use federal power to crush dissent" Party. We have an opportunity here to create a Libertarian Left Party or movement if w

  33. It adds a burning lash to all your weapon attacks (fists also count as weapons). The lash is 5% per wound you carry. That means it's 0% (no wounds) to 50% (10 wounds). Most likely the reason you don't see it on the animat is the mechanic of lashes: Lashes are multiplicative dmg bonuses which are based on your weapon damage roll (which is great) but there is a hurdle: any (non-raw) lash has to overcome the respective armor's damage reduction - or DR - of the target separately. Here it's the burn DR of the animat. Not the whole DR though but only 25% (or 1/4th). Again: all lashes (exc

  34. Avowed is an awesome name. It's short, phonetically pleasing and hints what the game's storyline is about (Woedica stuff) but is still mysterious. And it starts with an "A" which makes sure it always is among the first in the list - once that's sorted alphabetically. For example when people look up "list of Skyrim clones" on Wikipedia. Having no "Pillars" in it also makes sure there's not too much confusion whether the game is connected to PoE & Deadfire with more than the IP. "Pillars of Creation" on the other hand sounds like the name of a homebrew D&D campaign or a self-pu

  36. the good thing is everybody who read a Gromnir post related to obama or trump insofar as their authority over state and local police should already be aware the President has no such authority over, in particular, local sheriffs... though am suspecting that bit may have been lost in the not infrequent wall o' text. Kris Kobach claimed he spoke with 'enthusiastic' Trump three times about border wall project at center of fraud investigation oh, and am not sure why it is ok to ignore the recent findings o' the bipartisan senate investigation regarding russian interference. o'bannon

  40. Opps sorry, I thought this was a request programme. Didn't realize one has to justify their preferences. I would argue that you can't dumb down a game if you remove dumb things. Not implemeting stuff that I don't like leaves more resources for the stuff that I do like. Especially if it's resource-hungry quicksand like homes/strongholds and the pale imitation of interpersonal romantic and/or sexual relationships which usually need a ton of good writing to be somewhat non-cringeworthy. PoE and Deadfire have an unlimited stash by the way. If an unlimited stash is enough to turn

  43. being the "first" lich doesn't mean "only," though. he had apprentices in poe1, so clearly unlike traditional d&d liches, concelhaut doesn't mind sharing his knowledge if it furthers his own ends. plus, liches are immortal--who knows how long concelhaut has been around; plenty of time for more liches to arise. even though llengrath has also been around for ages, concelhaut might precede even them since llengrath definitely came about post-wheel, whereas like boeroer points out, concelhaut may have preceded the wheel altogether.

  45. Just wanted to start off by mentioning that I play this game in RTWP, as I come from the Baldur's Gate era. This thread was enlightening. That being said, I haven't finished the game yet - I've managed to read enough of this thread to not read spoilers, but several questions have been answered as far as things being 'broken'. To put it into perspective; I never experienced the transition, since I am new to the game after its final update when allegedly the entire game was left in what has been described as a broken state. I can definitely see why that leaves a lot of you frustrated and di

I have built multiple bases, found bracelets hidden throughout the backyard, and climbed to the highest of things I can climb. Obsidian, you have outdone yourself here, I love it from the bottom of my heart. The following are my takeaways and suggestions. Game Takeaways The game is an immersive survival experience propelling the player into a familiar yet entirely different world. From the character's banter to the bug life ambiance, the game truly makes you feel small...but in a good w
