  1. Honestly I voted for both "weapons can be same size" and "weapons don't have to be same type" but I don't need them to get to insane levels. I don't need or want to have a greataxe in one hand and a halberd in another. Still if they are within some form of reason then why not? Why not have someone have an axe in one hand to cut and a sword in his other hand to stab? Especially if the character fits. The example I gave could be for a character with low intelligence or who didn't grow up in a city so he just did what sounded smart to him.
  2. Obsidian has mentioned that none of the companions will be forced on to the player and it's fully possible to beat the game solo if you desire. Though after actually reading you weren't even asking about that. Personally I just don't care too much unless the character is really annoying.
  3. When I opened this I thought you were talking about having different quests depending on character builds. I'n not very good at guessing. On topic I agree with you. I don't mind some quests not being available depending on certain classes or races but I certainly don't want quests that are unsolvable. If I can't do the quest it shouldn't give it to me. I am a bit curious how a quest would be impossible considering having different companions and the adventurer's hall though but is it right to force someone to use those even for side quests? Maybe if you talk to the quest-giver they should say something about you not having the right skill they need or talking to themselves about how they wish someone who could sneak around or bake.
  4. Considering how low the Ouya's specs are compared to PCs I'm going to guess it won't happen. It would just be constricting the game.
  5. No prob, pal. I think you've done enough by pledging 250 bucks for our cause under the given circumstances Thanks and good to see Obsidian actually recognized this.
  6. Well good luck to you guys with this. Personally I already had to ask my parents to loan me $250 when they don't really have too much money in the first place so I don't think I could ask them for any more even just $8.
  7. Honestly I don't disagree with your point but allow me to try arguing against it. Icewind Dale didn't have a story focus because Josh Sawyer only had a weekend to write it compared to the several weeks that games like Planescape Torment and Fallout had. In terms of Baldur's Gate I have yet to play a Bioware game that managed to have any deep theme or use morality outside black and white. For Planescape I haven't heard a single person defend the gameplay even from the people who made it. Avellone said the D&D rules basically got in the way of their dialog focused gameplay. I'm not saying you are wrong but I'm saying it may have a better chance than you think.
  8. Well along the coast, originating from an off-map non-visitable land or island. Or maybe the pirates are based in a cove on the mainland and are powerful enough to keep themselves from being conquered and driven off. They might sail along the coast raiding villages and such. If that's the case then why wouldn't they be trying to form their own city and making their own civilization instead of continuing to be pirates if they have so much power. Also if no one can stop them then chances are there wouldn't be any villages by the coast or there would be massive harbors that they would have no chance against. My problem isn't with them existing but the game doesn't look like it was designed with gameplay in large bodies of water in mind. I don't want something being forced in just because.
  9. If they fit in the story maybe. From the looks of the current map pirates may fit more in a future title but as it currently looks I don't think so.
  10. And so did Saint Xantomas free Maiden Falls of the foul daemons that dared to disguise themselves in the form of beautiful women. There to wipe away the memory of such horrible acts did he open the greatest brothel this land has ever known. Thus did he work day and night building and on the last day he casted his most powerful holy magic to turn the waterfall into a place of healing where wounds and diseases were wiped away. Truly will his deeds will be remembered with the highest reverence and respect. A long time ago lived a woman next to the Maiden Falls, her fair features were of such great renown that many still believe the place's name is in her homage. But that isn't true: the woman killed herself upon hearing the death of her lover, it was then that wicked spirits took her form and haunted the area. For a long time they seduced travellers into falling from the top of the waterfall, but Saint Thomas' passing during a famous spiritual journey purified the place and slew the demons without bloodshed. Ever since, the people of Maiden Falls are dedicated to the memory of that journey - turning the place into a tourist trap and a brothel. As it turns out Virtue doesn't sell. I propose hijacking this post and turning it into creative stories behind the map location names. Lake of Drowned Tombs. Named so because it's original name was Lake of Drow Tombs and then someone realized that put them within lawsuit reach of Hasbro/WotC. Oh I think I got a better one. Echo Bay. One day an explorer named Enam Chonfer Orfen found this place after a long week of travelling. Exhausted he stopped and sat down and said "I need some rest". Miraculously he heard it being said over and over, each time being more faint than the last. "Is someone there?" He said and again he heard it multiple times. He sat there talking to himself marveling at what he was hearing. Nowhere else had he ever heard something like this. He decided to give this wonderous place a name and named it after his initials. What he failed to notice the entire time was the bandit several metres away hiding behind a rock who decided to screw with him instead of rob him.

  12. Also agreeing with this. Would be an awesome pledge goal or addition to one of the current pledge goals.
  13. You do realize the ouroboros is fairly common in mythology right? Also if this has to do with wheel of time why aren't red eagle games announcing it and obsidian linking to it since they would only be helping not leading? Do we know how much Obsidian is involved? Perhaps the project's evolved to the point where it's mainly Obsidian. Seems like a fairly clear correlation between the prominent logo and the fact Obsidian is working, at least in some capacity, on the WoT game series. The quotes don't seem to have much to do with the novels, though, but who knows at this point what it's going to be. If it evolved to it being mainly Obsidian then why did Red Eagle run the kickstarter with another company, Jet Set games, and not mention Obsidian at all? Also Obsidian aren't really mobile developers
  14. When did they say that? Maybe they changed their minds. Maybe they found something like high fantasy that interests them. If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck... I think Chris Avellone said it on his blog and I also think someone linked an interview with George Ziets here where he said both Avellone and Sawyer said they disliked high fantasy and whatever they were working on wasn't high fantasy. EDIT: It appears I read it wrong with Sawyer but I know Chris said he didn't like the concept of high fantasy.
