  1. Those aren't characters, those are identifies. The characters of the companions are not varied, despite the best efforts of the setting which begs for variance and identities you mention which should pave way to varied character design. Nope, the companions aren't even close to being varied expect maybe for Serefan. Sidekicks aren't bad but they don't really count as they are essentially hired adventurers with a background. I repeat "What exactly would you consider a varied character?" That isn't an answer. I'm guessing your answer is probably an Avellone text box.
  2. What's really disgusting me is how freaking *many* of these "There are women doing things that I don't like women doing in this game!" so-called reviews have been showing up lately.Really makes me question my self-identity as a "gamer" when I see what's up with parts of gamer culture these days. I just don't understand why of all games it's this one that's getting ragged on for these reasons. So far this is like the least "political" game I've played all year. RPGs seem to be particularly vulnerable to this stuff for some reason. The worst I've seen was the Beamdog forums during the release of Siege of Dragonspear a few years ago. The devs included a minor NPC with two lines of dialogue about gender fluidity and gamergate launched a weeks-long review bombing campaign knocking the metacritic and GoG scores down to 3 (meanwhile: 7.5 among verified Steam purchases). The developer downsized and hasn't released any OC since. Yet it's somehow the "SJWs" who are still charicatured in the gaming community as the unreasonable value crusaders. Goes to show that gamergate was never really about combating censorship in gaming so much as fighting cultural change and representational diversity. I mean, I get it. When games have been made with no care for any demographic but yours for the past thirty years, it's hard to adapt when the industry *finally* notices that other people want to play too. Same thing is happening with comic books – a female Thor and a black Spiderman are always going to cause some people's heads to just explode. I was actually one of the people that had a problem with SoD. Now THAT was just virtue signaling garbage. It was embarassing. Don't get me started on the state of Marvel comics. I just want a healthy middle where any character can be made without the writing being a huge dumpster fire.
  3. What exactly would you consider a varied character? Tekehu is a literal shark man and Xoti is a grim reaper with a southern accent. I don't understand. This game is based on the Renaissance era, People were super gay throughout all of history. The ancient Greeks and Romans banged anything that had a pulse. Hell, even pirates got some on the high seas, It was called "matelotage". Even then Eora is a completely different planet so just maybe cuture and society there is a little different then on earth.

  5. Do we need character sheets? Does anyone have a good template?
  6. I'm still having the issue as well. I've tried re-downloading the critical role DLC as well as "verify integrity of game files" and the problem persists.
  7. They should add a talent that lets pistols and such be used as blunt weapons in melee range after firing or something.
  8. If I remember correctly, I told her to do what she thought was right. Does the player still get blamed for that?
  9. I slapped together a Death Godlike portrait. It's supposed to look kind of like the male head 3. pleas dont bully me
  10. Well I think I'd be willing to give it a shot. I've never played an actual Pen and Paper RPG though.
  11. Someone should set up a play-by-post. not me though because I'm lazy.
  12. I heard that the reputation system is a bit bugged right now. That might be the problem. (she is kinda nutty though)
  13. I think it just comes with the genre and it's size. The community is pretty small and many fans of these types of games consider themselves "intellectuals" and their opinions are very important (no offense). it's mostly a lot of nitpicking but then there are some reasonable things that should be looked into. Nothing is perfect.
  14. (Sorry if this is in the wrong discussion but I've seen these types of topics everywhere.) Since Deadfire allows more flexibility in editing things like character models, would it be possible to take things like the new godlike heads and replace the models from PoE1 with them? If so, how exactly would you go about doing it? Would it break some kind of rule? Would Mr. Urquhart come to my house, hang me from a tree, and beat me like a Piñata for breaking said rule?
  15. The MCA stands for Mm... Muh... My Cdumb Ass... Damn
  16. I backed at the "Elite Collector's + Statue" level and I'm not getting a season pass either. Did I not back enough for it to be included?
