    Too many to list here (yes, even with 2000 characters available to do so). If you name a hobby or interest, any hobby or interest, it's quite likely I've been interested in it at one point or another, and can hold a conversation about it. And if not, it's even more likely that I can find interest it. I get high from learning. ;)<br /><br /><br />

  1. I like that the companions are more motivated by their own personality and morals, and not by a constructed alignment. Pallegina was a nice example in the setting when her morals conflicted her commitment to the Republic. With that system was a good thing at the start of roleplaying and suitable for certain (like gods being bound to a certain alignment instead of a portfolio of concepts, and their followers losing powers if their alignment differs too much). Same goes for the watcher's characteristics being possibly not liked by your companions, but they confront you and you can explain to an extent. I was so annoyed in Baldur's Gate when Jaheira and Khalid squabbled with Xzar and Montaron and we were barely in Nashkel when one of them wanted to leave if the other didn't. And oh god, Skie and Eldoth with their vastly different alignments. I dumped Eldoth in that little Pavillion iBaldur's Gate West by leaving the rest of the party outside and telling Eldoth to leave while inside there. That way he can't walk up to Skie and tell her to come along. I love the Baldurs Gate series, but even it wasn't perfect (though with help of certain mods it pretty much is). Buuuut, I fully agree we could have used someone going against the general direction of the group, that rubs the world the wrong way. Someone who might at least be more selfish and ruthless, maybe even actively against something. A donkey's posterior. I'm not saying we need a full on Bishop from NWN 2 (though who knows), but we at least need a Durance. And I like your idea of a Skaenite or even Skaen godlike. The Skaenite idea of giving the establishment a kick from down below in order to aid the masses would have fit really well with the whole "big parties vying for control, with the common people easily being left behind". We've got slavers, we've got a social system of taking care of the lower classes no longer working, we've got the Royal Deadfire Company claiming land without caring for losses. There's several chances for an easy main motivation quest and several side interests if I ever saw one. An at least two general backgrounds (pirates, gullet, even that amauna lady in Sakuya fighting with her brother about how the Rauataians demolish their culture [where the social system still works, even if others don't complain about now getting more contact with the other castes, and they not being *that* bad off]) to place them.
  2. Winning is not stealing babies for no reason. Seriously, you don't have to pick up *everything* Those words you say. They make no sense. That's what I mean.
  3. And sending them to hang with the companions is not much better. Even Pallegina, who you'd think would be a bit more responsible is terrible. At first she asks her if she has any duties on the ship, I think even if she gets some education, and Vela says she helps around, swabs decks, and has chores (not sure about education. I think she mentions learning shanties). Then Pallegina proceeds to ask if Vela is small enough to fit in an Imperial Long Gun. Vela asks why, and Pallegina answers something like "Well, someone has to clean them too". WTF, Bird lady?!
  4. Preposterous! My watcher would never lead their child, received through ab-doption to use drugs. Now some nice Mead, that is another story. I wonder if they have mead from pine honey on Eora. Or maybe from Orangeflower honey. Or from Lindenflower honey. Grieving Mother. She should have told us. I'm still not quite sure if she wasn't high on some weird soul drug after all, and just making up that whole birthing bell story as a cover.
  5. It's too late! Eld Engwith was a bad example and Vela is a full on druggie. At least now I know why she acts so weird when I talk to her. Background to this. I accidentally noticed I can pickpocket my crew, because switching to on-deck view, I didn't notice that my PC was in sneak mode. When I tried talking to one of them, the pickpocket window opened instead. Am I a bad person for seeing what all my other crew members have in their pockets? I honestly was just hoping *ONE* of them would carry sugar so I can make that blasted second packet of candied nuts. I swear, sugar seems to be the most rare resource in the Deadfire. Fittingly, Aloth was just worrying about Vela having learned a bad word from Serafen.
  6. During the encounter with the Eotans on the Island with the Sandswept ruins (SW map), I selected the options "The other eotans hid food from you" (paraprhrased, passed check successfully) and "my friends saw it!" (I think it was the third option. Failed that check). Now the mistake. The text says: "Rekke stares at you blankly. After a few long, silent moments, his eyes widen, and he slowly shakes his head." I haven't even met Rekke yet. My current party members are (in that order): Aloth, Pallegina, Mira and Tekēhu.
  7. I can confirm this. It always happens with the third slot of Serafen. As far as I can tell for Serafen it happens when I had him outside of my party, and the item is placed in his personal inventory when I get him back in the group.
  8. I read this issue with certain positions not registering in some other places, and I think it might have to do with certain crew members not being Kith. So Birta, being an Ogre, wouldn't register properly. Same with Worthless Idiot the Imp, Big Mouth the Vithrack surgeon (had someone mention that they didn't register in an event where a surgeon was relevant), and Mother Sharp Rock the Xaurip. I have Birta as Helmsman on my Junk, and when adressing her on-Deck, she just says "Shouldn't you have someone at the wheel?". Why yes Birta, I should, and I think I do have someone there, namely you. Maybe the issue with the surgeon is the same? Whom do you have in that position? As a side note, your Birta has points in Boatswain? Mine just has cook and helmsman. Does this vary? I hope it is just an oversight or a bug, and hope it will be fixed, as it would really make using the non-kith crew members useless.
  9. I too am a bit irked by this. She showed up on the beach just fine (using a questionnaire background), and on the ship talking with Serafen. In between she vanished for a while, but later had other interactions with companions (Thanks Pallegina for at first making me think you are worried she might not get a good education, but then suggesting she is small enough to scrub inside the Long gun cannons. ). Now she usually hags out in my cabin, but also has just generic sailor responses. I think the last unique non-interaction response she gave was her asking whether the boat will be alright while waiting at the campfire on the beach. I was really hoping she'd have more unique dialogues. Even if a Watcher didn't raise her directly and have someone looking after her (nanny, tutor, whatever), I'm sure she'd still have more unique things to say than every other sailor on board. She's not much different from the inventory item she was in PoE1, I am sad to say. Which is pretty sad.
  10. So, I went into Takano's house and as is custom and good manners for a cash pressed RPG PC I robbed the house and occupants blind. I did open the chest containing the Cornett of Waves, and took out everything but the Cornett. After that I had the chat with Takano and convinced him to sell me the conch. After clicking that option, while still in the dialogue, I already heard the battle music, which I considered odd. And indeed, when the dialogue window closed, everyone was hostile. I reloaded and went straight to Takano and got the conch (for free, as I told him Ondra might get angry), and everything was good. I am not sure if the hostility is intended (maybe they saw that other items are missing already and suspected poor old me), or a bug. So yeah.
  11. Me too. His career path seems to have taken him from the Vailian Trading company to facility caretaker for the Royal Deadfire company. I too was surprised to find him here, and hope to get more than his "Thanks for saving me from the Doemenels" at some point, especially if there's even a portrait for him. I think I might try dragging Pallegina along for the next visit. (I am typing this while inebriated from 500 ml of white wine and 325 ml of red sparkling wine from my sofa with a not ideal surface for my keyboard, so please excuse any spelling mistakes)
  12. It's hilarious that this should be the April Fools joke, because we contemplated the idea of NWN 2 on the Wii in one of the threads (not just any thread, but one that's been going for nearly two years now.) over at the Bioware forums, when someone mentioned they had gotten themselves a Wii. Someone mentioned it would be cool if you could slap Bishop or Gann, and I fully agree. ^_^ Still, it's funny that this is the April Fools joke, as that discussion took place only on the 30th of March. Not accusing you of copying it, don't worry. Just a funny coincidence (or unintentional mind reading ). - :) :) :)
