  1. I think unique is just used improperly in that sentence. I personally cannot recall any special spell that only came from a grimoire.
  2. That's not true at all. It's much like the movies. If Movie A makes 30 million off a 3 million budget, the studios take notice. If Movie B makes 150 million off a 100 million budget, a lot of times they shelve that franchise. As for the DnD edition wars, I won't really get into that. Sword Coast Legends is going to live or die by how good it's story is. If the story is good, it won't matter if it's a bastard version of 5E or not.
  3. When story NPC's are involved, I like as many as possible. I want all the interactions, all the banters, all the story. If I'm doing something like IWD, or just an adventurer party in this game, I like 4 NPC's. The classic set-up of tank, dps, healer, caster.
  4. It's not a top tier ability by any means, but I've gotten some use out of it. Pushing someone from Red to Yellow, or Yellow to Green after a fight, or even using it mid combat for someone who was low red and starting to get the limited health. I don't understand why Kana himself had the ability though. It doesn't seem to really mesh into his character concept (that I can recall) as well as some of the other picks.
  5. Thanks but that's not really the issue I am worried about. I had never seen him w/o the weapon focus, so I was worried the game was bugged and God knows what else would mysteriously vanish from my characters later on. However, I guess I just recruited him a little too early or Obsidian changed Eder gaining a free weapon focus. I'll have to make a new character and get him to the Vale and check and see.
  6. I'd love to see a RIFTS video game. (Not counting that N-Gage handheld quickie of a game.) I never really liked the system Palladium uses, but I love that setting.
  7. I quite enjoyed Shadowrun: Dragonfall, thought Shadowrun:Seattle was pretty decent, enjoying the hell out of Pillars of Eternity, and dyyyyyying for Star Citizen and Torment. I'm pretty happy Kickstarter is around.
  8. Sadly, WOTC trashed that world as part of their big '4th edition is the greatest thing ever,' push. Now it's just a generic points-of-light fantasy setting.
  9. It would be in Talents and Abilities. AFAIK, there's nothing that says 'You may engage: X' in the character sheet however. It's just thought that if it doesn't say anything, it's one, if it's more, it's in the description of an item/ability you have. A character can engage one target only base-line. Abilities like Defender increase this number, as do Talents like Hold The Line. Some items even increase this number as well by having the Guarding enchant, such as a rapier you can find pretty early in the game.
  10. Thanks for the replies. I will have to go back to an old save and check, but I thought I grabbed him at level 3. I could be wrong however. So you are saying Ruffian is basically a flavor talent he gets for free at a certain point, and he's not actually missing any talents?
  11. So, I started a run to mess around until the big patch hits and noticed Eder was having a lot of difficulty with landing hits compared to normal. Checking his character page I realized he didn't have Weapon Focus: Ruffian. I can't think of ever picking him up and him not having this weapon focus. (Don't get me wrong, being able to select a different weapon focus for him sounds amazing, I'm just worried if this is broken what else is borked with my save?) Did something change between my last game start and now? He's level 3 and has the talents in attached file.
  12. Cipher is my favorite, however I have had a lot of fun playing as a melee Rogue and as a Wizard.
  13. It's doable at four. Big things is the Archmages have to die first, and then the Champion. If you are getting overwhelmed, you can use the doorway across from the throne steps as a tanking point and have your casters rain spells safely from behind. Kana's summons also work well as distractions during the fight. You also could go hire an adventurer for the fight (even if it's just for the one mission) if you want another meatshield to protect your backline.
  14. Oh man, the Orlan he just posted is fantastic. Nnnn, need more male Orlan portraits!
  15. Yeah, see, it's one thing for the foreigners to curse in foreign tongues. But when the game spells "duke" and "earl" as "duc" and "erl," even though the pronunciation and meaning are identical, I kind of feel like the writing is being a little self-indulgent. Just a little. (Now, if it were pronounced "duck," on the other hand, that'd be awesome.) I could be wrong, but I thought those were the old Norman and French spellings of the words we now say as 'Duke' and 'Earl'. I get your point though. I just think that Pillars was trying to be consistent with it's language instead of just pulling off letters from real world titles like Bioware does quite a bit.
