  1. First they came for the poorly written jokes, and I did not speak out because seriously it's not a big deal get over it you babies.


    What if they forced this poor holy being, this Backer amongst Backers (Peace Be Upon Him), to change his bad writing to slightly better writing? Can we trust Obsidian anymore??


    I lived through communist Poland (was born in 1979) and I actually remember seeing censored books and unpublished stuff, because somebody, a political officer, decided it was "offensive" (to the Party or to the Russians). Seeing words changed now to conform to the new standard of "offensiveness" brings back the memories... and they are somewhat triggering.

  2. As a backer, if there is some reason your content needs to be changed, they will contact you. So stop worrying?


    They replaced a bad joke that upset some people with a good joke that rhymes better. This is not the hill to die on and everyone should just move on.



    As a long time customer of Obsidian (loved Neverwinter 2, especially Mask of the Betrayer), I'm not very happy to see anyone with enough Twitter following can easily remove content from your game *they* find offensive. I'd like to buy a game and own it, and not it being retroactively censored by other people. I pay today and content disappears tomorrow, because it didn't met someone's taste? You know what I find offensive? Censorship, having grown in communist Poland back in the day.


    At least I can make an informed decision and not buy the game now. I got my salary today and was deciding which of the new games to buy - well, as I am offended by censorship (reminds me of Gierek, Jaruzelski and United Communist Party of Poland which I remember too well), I won't be backing this game. I'll wait a year or two for a sale. I can :p


    Yeah, I know - I'll buy a Polish game instead. They don't cave in to loud censors.
