  1. Quote Feargus Urquhart:


    "The money raised for the stretch goals doesn't all go to the development of that stretch goal. Any additional funds that we raise will be used to have additional people work on the project, such as area designers, programmers, and artists. All of these fine people will make the game's story larger and improves the quality of the game."


    I fear some people just dont know how kickstarter and especially stretch goals work.

    Stretch goals are just kind of a bait. It doesnt mean the bait (e.g. new class, new companion, player house) is that expensive - a lot more can be created with every new stretch goal.

  2. I see your concern. I just noticed for myself:


    The same announcement but made by a certain other company would have a much different impact on me than by Obsidian.


    You gave the answer yourself: It is faith.

    So the difference is, I can believe in Obsidian Entertainment to handle this properly.

    I would not believe in certain other companies...

  3. More stretch goals could mean more money and having to add more content. More content means spending more time for creating that content.

    At the same time however you can afford to hire more people working for you with the additional money, which would mean less time spending.


    More content means bigger game and can increase the chance of pleasing a bigger audience, which can mean more customers.


    On this stuff, we can only speculate.

    I do not have insight in the staff of Obsidian Entertainment, nor in their financial situation.

    I am not able to tell what the guys at Obsidian Entertainment can do or cannot do with what amount of money.


    I do not have insight in this company.


    This is why I would prefer an offcial opinion of somebody working there on this issue than mere speculation.

  4. Hey Fellas,

    concerning the latest update:


    "Additionally for our $500 backers and above, we will let you put your name and a personalized message on a memorial stone in game. Your unique message will be encoded into Glanfathan runes, and can be decoded using a unique in-game ring. It's a way for all of us to remember your large contribution to Project Eternity."


    I wondered a few things that I would like to discuss here.

    (If you are below 500$ backer, just assume you had donated 500$ or above)


    1) Would you enter your real name or a nickname? And Why?

    1a) Does the issue of data protection influence this decision?

    2) What message would you enter? A general saying, idiom, or something very personal?


    I'm torn on the subject of the real name (out of data protection reasons), that is why I want to see what you guys think about this.

    But feel free to discuss anything else here related to the memorial stone as well.

  5. I'm okay with: "I do not like it"


    I'm not okay with "I do not like it hence it should not be ingame" (especially when it is optional)


    I have seen this so many times before, no matter if it's the bioware forum, the BG:EE forum or here:

    People not wanting optional stuff ingame because they are not gonna use it.


    1) It is optional, you can avoid it

    2) The game is not developed just for you, there may be someone out there who likes this optional content. The decision if this someone should get optional content is the developers one, not yours.

    3) Concerning the argument: "Only optional stuff for majorities should be added, because the devs could save time if they did not implement options for minorities (and spend that time on other stuff)":

    a) Maybe one day you will want to have something implemented that only a few players want (i.e. you may belong to a minority yourself one day concerning an ingame feature).

    b) Once again: It is the developers decision: They decide if they can afford the time to add optional content. And what content this may be.


    Out of a game-developers view: I would really like to know how they see it: Adding a content for a minority that absolutely did not expect it and is grateful for it. Or adding a content for people who believe themselves to be majority and take it for granted that they are being catered to.

    Thus speaks a true servant of the Marshmallow god!


    Dlux your order dictates that any distressed damsels so poorly equipped must immediately be wrapped in warm blankets and provided with soup as a prevention from catching cold! I fear you waver in your commitment and must do penance before the toasting fires of the Marshmallow God!


    And we all know who this mighty allfluffly utmost tasty Marshmallow God is!


    *coughs* *puffs up chest*

  7. Wow, did I hear right?

    An animated gelantinous cube named Kerfluffles as a pet? Sounds great :D


    BTW @ Obsidian

    As feedback: I'm fine with this pet, because it is vanity. However please understand that people are very very sensitive to this kind of concept because of what EA is doing with its games.

    When you go this way, some people may fear you go some other ways as well that EA has gone... It's a thin line...


    As you see even though it's a vanity pet, there are already some complaints.

  8. Ok, maybe my brain isn't working after all the marshmallow excitement but what is the 'Flaming Fist' and how do we crush them! :w00t:

    The flaming fist is the Law and Order along the sword coast mainly known from the Baldurs Gate series of games. "We serve the flaming fist" is their motto. I have killed many, MANY flaming fist members in my time.


    Ah... so theres another way the Obsidian Order can exceed the Flaming Fist in number of members...

    Either get more recruits for OO or reduce the amount of Flaming Fists...
