  1. Potato Chef is there to keep everyone safe. It can be dangerous to ignore his warnings.
  2. I don't think there's been much conversation about the first-person sequence in the trailer because it seemed fairly unlikely that last year the game could possibly be too far along. It may include elements they're considering (glowing runeswords, fancy casting animations, etc...), but the general consensus is that the trailer is CGI from end-to-end. It's been really hard to interpret "coming soon" statements these days. Most of those happened before a string of California wildfires forced evacuations, and were back during simpler times when everyone still hoped COVID would burn out during the summer of 2020. [Also, welcome to the forums!]
  3. It was released last just week! Should be available on Spotify and iTunes (maybe others too). https://music.apple.com/us/album/grounded-original-soundtrack/1576301412
  4. Is it too soon to speculate about Michigan?
  5. Obsidian seems to be keeping up with the state naming convention. There may even be more than four things in various stages of production. 18. Louisiana - Pillars of Eternity 2 19. Indiana - The Outer Worlds ------------------------- 20. Mississippi - [???] 21. Illinois - [???] 22. Alabama - Avowed 23. Maine - Grounded 24. Missouri - [Josh Sawyer's unannounced project] 25. Arkansas - The Outer Worlds 2
  6. Yeah, that seems reasonable. By project codenames, Avowed is three projects older than TOW2. We really don't know much about the two in the middle, so it's hard to gauge if it's a big head start or a little head start, but TOW2 is the most recent project they've announced.
  7. New Website, New Metadata! TOW2 is Arkansas stRef:filePath="AR_Announce_Trailer_Final_16-9.mp4" Avowed is Alabama stRef:filePath="Alabama_Teaser_Animatic_XboxDigitalVersion_OnlineMaster_ESRB_HD_1080p29_H264_Stereo_-16LKFS.mp4"
  8. TOW 2 is Arkansas! The new website features a short TOW2 video clip chopped up from: stRef:filePath="AR_Announce_Trailer_Final_16-9.mp4" Avowed is Alabama.
  9. I don't think there's been any definite info to find so far. Aside from the teaser trailer, there are only like 3 TOW2-related pieces of media to examine, and both have been fairly scrubbed of interesting metadata.
  10. Depending on how you want to parse the semantics, Halcyon doesn't have to be the only corporate colony, just the only (known) one on the edge of the frontier. Maybe there's another corporate colony even further out. Or a colony slightly closer to Earth. Or a non-corp colony somewhere else on the frontier. Or some wildcat colony that the corporations built in secret. Still plenty of ways to spin a sequel while not retconning TOW1.
  11. I'm pretty sure you aren't talking about Pathfinder Adventures... or even anything related to the original post. Pathfinder: Kingmaker, was not made by Obsidian.
  12. Taming has probably been one of the most requested features since the early access launched. Check out the Grounded Feature Board for some of the upcoming ideas. Pet Aphids and using pheromones to control ants seem to be some of the first "taming" features in the hopper.
  13. I can't say I know for sure why multiplayer didn't happen for the digital game, but I'm going to suspect that player communication and resource management didn't quite work in a way they were happy with. Half of the tabletop experience is scrounging for blessings or arguing how best to approach some impossible check. At a minimum, the app would need integrated voice chat, and a lot of how cards and characters are handled would need to be redesigned to support "player X only controls characters Y and Z" stuff. The digital version does a great job as a nerdy single-player RPG solitaire, but aside from maybe same-room multiplayer, I've got to imagine that there are a ton of things that would have needed to happen to make remote multiplayer feel smooth. The dream though, would have been finding a way to make asynchronous multiplayer work. Playing a few turns here and there, and working through a scenario over the course of couple days would have been fantastic. Getting a mobile notification when it's your turn or "HALP I NEED BLESSINGS!!!" would have been a cool way to play the game with distant friends.
  14. If you want, support@obsidian.net should be able to fully wipe your profile if you give them you PFID (found in "Settings"). Otherwise, you can manually delete all your characters and parties, and sell off everything in the stash. The only things you can't manage as a player are your gold and any unlocked treasure cards.
  15. Back loooong ago, there were some plans for both local and networked multiplayer in the game. There was a "Pass and Play" hot-seat mode, were you took your turn and handed off the tablet to the next player. And up until the game was released on Steam, the main menu featured a greyed-out "Multiplayer" button: RIP Quest Mode Ultimately, both ideas quietly disappeared around when the game was released on PC. I don't recall any rumors how well any prototype network play worked (if at all) before the Multiplayer button was finally removed, but the team joked about increasing the button's transparency each patch until it entirely faded away from view.
  16. I'm still pretty sure you're talking about Pathfinder: Kingmaker. That's, uh, an entirely different game compared to Pathfinder Adventures. Maybe you'd have better luck in the Owlcat forums?
  17. You can check out the Grounded Feature Board to get an idea of where the game is going. There's no official "the game is X percent done" figure, but there are still two major biomes to go, and a lot of missing plot to start tying it all together.
  18. They're already on it. Check out the Grounded Feature Board for what the team is looking at in future updates.
  19. Not a bad question at all. If you purchase Grounded during early access, you get the "full" version when it is released sometime in 2021.
  20. It's a stylized Aedyran similar to the Oathbinder Sword, but the Avowed hand appears to be bringing some "Joy" to the party. In a roundabout way, relying on spells for basic emotions seems pretty on-point for #TeamWoedica.
  21. Honestly, as a BYU speech, the link above probably has much more in common with the New Vegas: Honest Hearts DLC than anything Pillars.
  22. Hey, if you ever stop by the Official Grounded Discord, the team just opened up suggestion voting. Submit some of your ideas in #suggestions, and if it gets enough votes, it will sent to the developers for consideration in a future update.
  23. Player size seems pretty consistent with being 1/100th "normal." One of the early promo images (also in the downloadable fankit), seems to imply the character is about 14mm tall (9/16 inch). Though, in-game, it seems like you may be a millimeter or two taller based on your size compared to world items. But yeah. A little higher than half an inch seems to be your height.
  24. It's Potato Chef!!! What else is there to know? Nothing to see here. Pay no attention to His Starchy Highness. You already asked too many questions.
