  1. Lovely. Just plain lovely. Thank you for posting those. The animations of the character and the backgrounds it's on, the shadow and light work, the colors, the texture of the rocks and ground and ground cover everything is gorgeous. The plants and grass are even lovely, as well as the shadow play over them. The character, and its animations, blend astoundingly well with the world. I would support his kickstarter.
  2. Lot's of text in the game. A series of novellas to read in a library or other places in the game I'm all for. I don't want to buy books outside the game though.
  3. Has there been any indication about stats limiting the number of companions the PC can pick up? High charisma, party of 6, low charisma, party of... two?
  4. Two souls in one body. Transgenders will be happy? I'm cool with all of this. Great update.
  5. Of course your own personal desires do not render it a non-topic. It's a non-topic all on its own. Obviously not.
  6. He's talking about the nex-gen-ification of RPGs. He's asking why you'd want these silly, inane qualities in a classic cRPG. I don't. Read my first post. That doesn't make it a non-topic.
  7. I don't really understand how a transgender person with difficulty connecting to a nontransgendered character would find it easier to connect to an asexual race, much less a race that has no sexuality because it's a non-organic construct like a golem. And I don't understand how people fail to grasp role playing games are games where you're supposed to play(with implemented mechanics) other characters, not yourself. When asking for these gay/trans/furry/foot fetish/whatever people want to play themselves - you're a tranny irl, why don't you play a lawful neutral/dwarf/cleric-thief.

  9. Because this is supposed to be a return to the classic IE cRPG days, not a real life emulator. Where do you draw the line? "I am extremely ADHD so I want Obsidian to include a ritalin meter (come on, George Ziets!) where I'll go into an "interruption mode" where my character won't let anybody finish their sentences when it wears off. I want this because I have a hard time relating to people in a more appropriate format than videogames." Yes, yes it is. And different people propose different ways to enhance and better those experiences. For some, this is one of them. For others it i

  11. I think you are safe. And more to the point, you having an opinion on this goes a long way to show that gender-issues are important to many, including you (and me). Me? I want to play a straight guy - probably human. And yes, this is because it's familiar and easyer to relate to. I'm probably safe to. When it comes to sexuality I expect it to be handled in a mature and adult way. I expect to find homosexuals in the world, but how the world reacts to the issue can be handled in many different ways. I hope the reaction differs in the world from faction to faction (races, towns/villages
  12. I'm not sure why they don't just play Second Life if that's what people want. Why expect a cRPG to be some all-inclusive real life simulation? I don't get this reaction. This is a kickstarter. People want to debate and be a part of the creative process. Some people want turn based combat. Some want deep political story lines. Some people want cool companions, and some want a different approach to the gender issue. Why should this be a non-issue in this process? I don't get it. In this particular case I don't think it needs to be implemented specifically in the game mechanics,
  13. That doesn't start or stop with sexuality/gender-topics though. I know but it bears repeating every time the silly advice "just role play it in your head" comes up. It's pure cancer. I guess that woul com down to personal opinion. Some people want a fleshed out PC, somewhat limiting the role playing potential - but at the same time offering a rich in-game experience -, others want a clean sheet opening up for limitless role playing, at the cost of some times stumbling upon impossible encounters where none of the alternatives offered by the game really is "in character" for the role
