  1. "Immersion" in the way mentioned by Stoner means, that a game shouldn't feel like a game anymore but a virtual reality where you can do everything as in real life, but instead of being a mere mortal you can be a knight, a neanderthal, a member of a special forces unit or everything else a developer comes up with. To me, this is not a game anymore but a simulation.
  2. This is a game, not a simulator. So, there is a distinct layer of abstraction. Most of the time, failing at immersing oneself into the game founds in a lack of imagination. Alas, this is so much more meat on the bone as, for example, a pen a paper-rpg where one has to pretend a green dice on a battlemat is a an orc while some black lines and tokens represent massive walls and barrels. Congrats, this is what CRPGS where all about back in the day. If your fantasy is so crippled you have problems immersing into the game because "text" and "isometric", maybe play some oh-so-immersive "RPGs" like Mass Effect or Dragon Age. I heard, they have romance, too. Also notice, immersion is the most overrated thing ever in gaming. And Skyrim is a bland piece of **** when it comes to gaming.
  3. I never understood what nSpace was aiming for with SCL. For a game that had "NWN" written all over it, it met NONE of that expectations. Still sad seeing yet another stuido shut down with a failed D&D-game. I wonder how much WoTC had to do with the course that game went ...
  4. I remember this being a huge drag whilst dealing with Maerwald. Thx 4 adressing this!
  5. Makes my inner baby jesus cry to hear that Justin Bell considers "Caed Nua" one of the worst tracks he's done for the game. I think it's one of the best. I often hear it whilst doing studies or just for relaxing. It captures the soothing feeling of coming home, that I associate with my keep. Great track.
  6. Worst Pathfinding I ever experienced was in BG II ToB, the cursed Jail in Saradush. My god, what a pita.

  8. Set sails indeed.... off to the islands of Rautaui! :D And your stronghold being.... a Ship! (Don't remember who suggested this but it was someone on this forum) EDIT: As for a Pillars of Eternity 2 High-Level Campaign (Some brainstorming): A) Continue with the "Watcher", now a Duke or Lord with troops and soldiers under his/her command. Hire low-level and mid-level adventurers to conquer the world. A Jagged Alliance, Battle Brothers, XCOM, Real time or Turn Based RPG hybrid. That could accomodate both the feeling of "The Watcher is really powerful now" and getting the Low-Level and Mid-Level campaign. Basically a Low-Level AND High-Level Campaign in one game. Face an army with your army, and defeat the leader of that army with the Watcher in a duel. Hmm.... that... that might just work. 1) You are a Pirate Lord, Captain of the Ship. 2) Your hirelings, adventurers, and companions, destroying the enemy opposition... 3) ... and you dueling against the enemy captain in the end. Your hirelings could scout islands (under your control), search for treasure and such, and when they encounter a big enough encounter, your character steps in to deal with it. I could see it working a little bit like the Stronghold missions, press a button to send scouts or patrols to various locations, and after X amount of in-game time you get a notification "We found something!" and then you get to control your High-Level group to deal with it (and skip all the thrash mobs along the way, go straight to the encounter/event). B) Play as an entirely new character.... or even a Dual- or Twin-Campaign~ basically, either "Start New Game" as a new character, with new beginnings, having his/her own adventures going from Point B to Point A, or continue with a Watcher character who is going the typical Point A to Point B. This solution would give Players who want a new character, a new character, and it'd also give Players who want to continue with the Watcher, to continue. This sounds not like the game, I want PoE 2 to be. Not in the slightest. I hope, nothing of this will come true. Keep it oldschool. Also, there is the Risen-Franchise for those, who can't get enough of Pirates of the Carribean in their CRPG. Rauatai http://pillarsofeternity.gamepedia.com/Rauatai Aumaua (20'000 year old culture of exploring+settling) http://pillarsofeternity.gamepedia.com/Aumaua *shrug* With or without piracy/captain/my suggestion/wish, this area is part of the Eora world (the one Pillars of Eternity is set in) and I think it's an interesring location that I want to explore further. Furthermore, Kana Rua is one of my fav companions, and would like to companion again, and also see his fate :D Yeah, I do know that this stuff exists within Eora, but I don't want to see it in a sequel. I guess I just can't stomach a whole game in pseudo-hawaian-2-meter-sized-shark-people-country with some lame ass yohoho-pirates thrown into the mix. Let alone the thought of it leaves me shuddering. Keep it oldschool. I will continue toi state this point until the devs say someting official about the setting of PoE2.
  9. I want it to be more in the vein of "Eye of the Beholder". Make it POV and fully set in a dungeon.

  11. Only based on assumptions and hints throughout the game and dev's chat: 1. They went extinct when creating the gods 2. From his perspective, he does good things. But the most evil things in history were committed with good intentions. He also is an Engwhithian. Or at least, his soul is. 3. don't know 4. yes 5. basically, it's a lovecraftian tale. Earl of Yenwood builds castle on an ancient engwhithian site and digs too deep in it's mysteries.
