  1. Personally, I get more excited by these ideas, some elements in the old IE combat formula always irked me, and as a DM for many years a lot of the same problems meant that it was largely the fault of the dnd system. The health/stamina idea is brilliant, and even though it's only vaguely explained i think it shows real promise. XP for objectives is also really neat (though that one has been on the table here for quite some days, if you read the article where josh stated they wouldnt reward your bodycount), since i personally have always liked to go the nonlethal route wherever possible.
  2. So, I made this thread in the general forum, not realizing that the forums had been split. That's what i get for using bookmarks i assume. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Ok, so I know this has more or less been done to death, especially since those rumours about a cooldown system started floating around, but I'd still love to discuss this issue, since it actually is slightly immersion breaking to rest all the time.

  3. Ok, so I know this has more or less been done to death, especially since those rumours about a cooldown system started floating around, but I'd still love to discuss this issue, since it actually is slightly immersion breaking to rest all the time. I've personally always loved the idea of a dungeon as a single adventuring day, and for most of my challenge runs in baldurs gate 1/2 i tried to finish the games without the day counter going over 100. I also hate the all resources restored between encounters type of gameplay found in say dragon age. A suggestion here would be to look at (ea
  4. Hey, you got it wrong in the update there, its barDbarian, not barbarian, completely intentional.
  5. Greetifications everyone. Always been an obsidian fan i guess, so this is the first project I've ever pledged more than a minimum to. Telefax, Obsidian Order Bardbarian
  6. cant say i like crafting overall that much. in a D&D like game you generally want to have the best rewards hidden deep in dungeons for loot, and making your own epic stuff tend to diminish that. also, tracking crafting materials for a dozen recipes at once in a game with a limited inventory system (and where crafting probably is a skill costing points) feel like too much hassle to be worth it. I can understand crafting in an immersion sim like skyrim, but for a story driven game crafting tends to just add wtf am i doing-moments
  7. And if the pure fighter was someone like Charlemagne or Alexander, great leaders and warriors. we are talking about a game protagonist, not an average dnd party member. (Well, provided this game does have a clear protagonist, it could be like ID or SoZ, but somehow i doubt it)
  8. In most pen and paper rpgs, your brave band of adventurers generally have a party "face", the group spokesperson, generally the one with the highest charisma or personality or whatever it is called attribute. Attribute selection then plays with skill and class selection, diplomacy and so on. In dnd the classes with the most reason to have a high charisma are bards, paladins and clerics. You know this, so im coming with the point. In a computer game, especially ones like planescape or baldurs gate, the world interacts with YOU, and the party spokesperson is always YOU, regardless of wha
  9. Yes, people find it easier to relate to humanoids, and that said, any playable race probably needs to be humanoid. But that doesnt mean that we should recycle tolkiens material, or that everything needs to have exactly human features. You can make some good, new-ish races if you are willing to. Mass effect had them in spades, the Qunari redesign in DA2, was one of the better aspects of that game, and I have found that i like a lot of the nonhuman races in japanese rpgs that feel like something that has had design into it and not just fan service (last remnant, ivalice, for example)
  10. As the title says. I've tried to make the poll as wide as possible, though my personal bias can be found in one of the answers. If you guys think this is a bad poll I'll remove it. After looking through some of the comments for the stretch goals update I found that several people disliked the traditional races common in fantasy settings, namely elves and dwarves. Elves and Dwarves are in nearly every western fantasy setting, so much so that in fact a few newer rpgs, like dragon age, has gone out to subvert the tropes, and quite a few people are heavily tired of generic Beardfist Hammer
