  1. Hi, I participated in the Kickstarter and received a key for the Steam beta, which is currently in my library. I'm not sure how to go about obtaining the key for the regular release version of the game. Tried following the advice provided here ( http://forums.obsidian.net/topic/71663-when-do-backers-get-our-steam-keys/?do=findComment&comment=1597840 ), but when I try to log into the eternity.obsidian.net account page, it refreshes, without logging me in or providing any error message. Not sure how to proceed. https://eternity.obsidian.net/account#products
  2. Hmm, I did try leveling up a bit; however, there didn't seem to be enough enemies to fight near Dyrford Village and Dyrford Crossing to level up. Perhaps I'm reading the map wrong, but it seems there are only two very small areas we can visit beside Stormwall. I did find quite a few lions and other enemies near the entrance to the Stormwall dungeon. These were challenging, but I managed to beat them. Do enemies respawn if you keep wandering around that area? Quick thing: Fighting enemies will not help you level up. You only get experience from completing quests. Maybe you know this, but your comment that there "didn't seem to be enough enemies to fight... to level up" would suggest otherwise. Oh, wow, thanks I had no idea. Thought I needed to kill lots of enemies. I think I only managed to complete one quest, given by the fugitive NPC in Dyrford Village.

  4. I've been playing the backer beta for a while and I don't know if I made some mistakes building my party or what, but it seems insanely challenging. Even on the easiest setting, I can't beat the first group of enemies inside the first dungeon in Stormwall Gorge. I'm playing a Fire Godlike Cipher character, with the same BB Wizard, BB Rogue, BB Fighter npcs that we start out with. The only one who does significant damage is the BB Wizard, and pretty quickly the entire party wipes except for the BB Fighter. My BB rogue seems useless, as she has very few active abilities, and she dies so fast. The BB Priest seems somewhat helpful, but she has only one relatively weak healing spell, and the rest of her spells seem to restore stamina instead of health. Any suggestions for playing Cipher character? Should I go back and re-roll a wizard, or recruit some wizard mercenaries? Also, I noticed the tooltip description for some AOE abilities includes "damages everyone in area" - does this include allies?
  5. Come on! A game without the "rats in the basement" cliché would be just like the Terminator without saying "Hasta la vista, baby!" If there is a cliché in a game, it has to be the "the old lady and the 7 rats" Perhaps if they turned it on its head, say a talking rat whose basement is infested with old ladies.
  6. Loved Oblivion's DB quests, but something about the Oblivion Thieves' Guild really rubbed me the wrong way. They were too much Robin Hood and didn't seem like a believable gang of criminals. Haven't finished Skyrim's TG quest yet, probably did a little more than half and so far I absolutely love it. Above all, the voice actor playing Devlin is absolutely brilliant, he's channeling a Michael Caine type of ****ney accent and it's wonderful. They seem like a much more believable group of thieves compared to the goody two shoes Oblivion TG.
  7. I need to get started as well, probably about 30 days left before Dragonborn is available for PC. I have the Morrowind GOTY version including Bloodmoon but so far I've only played a few hours of Morrowind in total, just up to the point where you meet Caius Cosades.
  8. Using Frostfall, started dying of hypothermia, had to quickly dismount and build a fire: Testing a recent mod project, blocking this dragon's breath with a ward spell while hitting him with a new Area of Effect version of Ice Form shout Fighting Mirmulnir at the Western Watchtower
  9. Loved KOTOR2, played it only once and haven't played KOTOR1 or tried KOTOR2 with mods yet, although I bought it recently on Steam, so I look forward to trying the restoration patch. I played Dragon Age 2 twice, never finished the game, but I had to restart after I got about 75% through in order to help beta test one of the patches. It's great that you can skip the cutscenes. However, the replay value was killed by the fact that there were only three class options and no other races beside Human, no alternate origin stories, no crafting in the game, no joinable factions, crappy side quests, recycled environments, etc.
  10. Thank you! Long, unskippable cut scenes kills any game's replay value for me. I've even purchased a couple games on Steam that started out with super long cutscenes and QTEs etc., and it was so annoying I thought, "Why bother with this crap?," uninstalled and never played the game. I don't buy games in order to sit around passively watching a movie, I want to spend more time actually playing the game.
