New stretch goals for companions and wilderness areas? in Pillars of Eternity: Announcements & News Posted January 18, 2014 You seem to be very okay with giving up money without having an actual product, which I of course also did but, I don't see how having new wilderness areas and companions cannot be done by an expansion after we know what kind of quality we have recieved rather than giving more money for a non existing product. It is folly in my mind to think we know what we would get with more money, "more wilderness exploration areas and 3 more companions" could be utterly terrible, whereas when we get to see the quality of the product first (I do not want to throw more money in based on nostalgia) and then pay for an expansion when we can be fairly reassured on what we are truly getting. This isn't voting no to others having the ability to offer more, it is merely a poll of obsidian asking how the community feels about the idea. If enough are against it, it is fairly obvious that the investment into the bonus features would probably not be worth the effort. You seeing it as people voting no as denying those saying yes is IMO a bad way to look at it.
