  1. I heard in France you try to avoid the english language as much as possible. I wonder how you did it in the Pirates of the Carribean movies. In Germany most of the terms (Like "Black Pearl" for example) were kept in english language, with a few exceptions. How's it in France? Disclaimer : I am not from France, but from Canada, Québec, a French speaking province. But as a rule of thumb, here, though I believe it is similar in France where they are somewhat more liberal on the question, titles from books and movies are translated, but trademarks and such are not. So, for insta
  2. I won’t start translating all the game, but just for the term Deadfire Archipelago, already I feel like there has been a lost opportunity to translate it in French as « l’Archipel des Feux Endormis », or in English it would quite literally means Sleeping Fires. If I recall correctly, Josh Sawyer even stated somewhere that it was the meaning they were going for with Deadfire, because of the volcanic activities of the region. Seriously, I feel like they were handed the project and they did not ask any question or anything to Obsidian to try and specify the meaning behind specific terms,
  3. Well, at least insofar as I am concerned, Aldris Blade of Captain Crow is the one weapon so far that I despise. The way it looks is just too over-the-top to my liking, which is a shame because of the effects of the blade. The clipping sure does not help neither. When it comes to armors, though, I feel like they could have done a lot better in terms of variety. A lot of the armors are not that different from their counterparts of higher quality. It is particularly true for robes and such. By the way, this game lacks an enchanted version of a captain’s cap like they added in the first game
  4. The suckling power of Eothas is only getting stronger as time goes by. By the time the Watcher is waking up in the cabin, he was able to suckle the power of his long lost, strong souled, friends, Edér, Pallegina and Aloth ? Truth be told, there is no lore explanation to it. Even in game, it is not exactly stated as such. You just barely escaped death, lose a portion of your soul, but it is not like it should affect your level overall. It affects the power of the souls you accumulated, that is for sure, especially since you… but for the rest ? It is, it seems, only mechanical in purpose.
  5. Actually, it works perfectly well. In fact, insofar as PoE I is concerned, the game is finally acknowledging and reacting to your actions in some capacity when it comes to your companions, in Deadfire. None in PoE I could leave you if you did not expressly ask for it yourself. So, it is logical for Edér to react, because according to his personality and your description of the event, the one at the beginning of the game, you go out of your way to steal from a group of people, worshipers of Eothas to make matters worse. It sure will not fly by him in that case. If anything, I thi
  6. Hi, so I tried my hand at modifying some images to have some watercolor variants. Here are some of them, just in case some of you might be interested. I will most likely try to help out a bit, in the near future, too
  7. Following the same idea, I could also say that six characters suck, because it is not seven. Indeed, I could start using the seventh character right away, no problem ! But wait, what about eight or nine characters in my party, would not that be great, too ? Joke aside, they decided to go with this number because of the amount of micro needed to use with every characters. Later in development, when they implemented successfully the AI Behavior system and thus alleviated the problem considerably, it was already too late to start changing things up. I remember watching a stream about
  8. I see, do you think Serafen can do good damage? because some people say he has a bad status for a cipher. Of course, he can. Sure, he is not maxed out in Might, but that does not matter, now does it ? Some of the spells the Cipher has access to inflict Raw damage anyway, bypassing DR and thus without anything to mitigate damage in the first place. On top of that, with something like 14 in Might, he is not lacking by much, if you truly wanted to max out an orlan in Might. I guess a lot of people like to mini-max the hell out of the game ; in that regard, they might even say if yo
  9. My guess would be to go either Maia or Serafen. My thought is that Maia is pretty good at killing and interrupting casters and far away enemies all the while Aloth excels at debilitating closer enemies but less so the further those are. Thus Maia fills in a nice gap in the formation in that regard. Serafen, being a Cipher, is pretty useful overall to control the battlefield. He has also some truly awe-inspiring single-target damage potential, if needs be. Paladins are nice and all, but I do not necessarily like as much as I did in the first game the unique variant of Pallegina. In
  10. Hi, I would like to have those images into watercolor variants, if it is possible. I big thanks in advance !
  11. As I was looking into character creation the other day, I was wondering just how awesome it would be if we could get more cosmetic options, like portraits and character models, especially faces, but perhaps also hair styles, beards, etc. As of right now, it is quite limited in scope. It is especially striking now that we see much more closer to the models. I understand it costs money to produce, so I am just curious to know if I would be alone to be interested in them producing some high quality materials for us to toy with in the future under the form of a small DLC or something. Hopefull
  12. In Pillars of Eternity I, fellow companions you did not bring along with you saw their growth halted altogether – unless you sent them on adventures, that is. In the same spirit, in the Deadfire, how one goes about keeping all companions more or less on the same footing without painstakingly switch them in and out of your group all the time ? I might not have gotten far enough yet, so sorry if such is the case. But in the off chance I did not notice something, I am eager to have some answers on that. Thanks in advance, everyone !
