  1. Keep your expectations low if you strip them. A lot of the detail seems to be painted on, not part of the miniatures themselves. I'm guessing they're pretty blank under the paint.
  2. I got mine today. I ordered the painted figures, since I don't have much time to do minis painting myself these days. I wasn't pleased with the quality. On the plus side, the colors are very close to the official artwork, and the poses aren't any worse than your average D&D pre-paint. At a distance, they don't look half bad. But the lack of detail is a killer. The paint is thickly applied and obscures what few details there are on the figures, especially on the faces, where it looks like clown make-up, especially on Eder. There's no shading. And yeah, I'm another one who got a badly bent sword on Eder's figure. I definitely won't be putting together any dioramas with this lot. I'm not upset, but it is a disappointment.
  3. I've been on a Deep Space Nine kick, so I was all too happy to keep my primary vessel as "The Defiant" throughout and swapped out runabout names for the others.
  4. I laughed out loud at the first one, though. I thought it was a refreshing departure from the dialogue trees in some RPGs where the MC drags their feet through the dialogue options until the game railroads them off to save the world. By comparison, the Watcher has limited leeway with the gods. XD
  5. I expect that's why he's not an option, to play against expectations. I hope Aloth turns out to be a romance option for male Watchers. I have such a hard time imagining Aloth as romantic in any way that I am intensely curious to see what the writers dreamed up for him, but I also want to keep my Watcher from the first game. XD
  6. I pledged for the DLC on FIG, so it's a bit annoying to get an advertisement for Critical Role DLC first thing on opening the game and not having a code for it in the backer portal.
  7. Ditto. I just came here to ask about that. I think someone forgot a step when creating the survey.
  8. I'm here for the banter, so first run will be my imported Watcher with Eder, Aloth, and Pallegina. He'll trust them to watch his back, at least. Serafen will probably round out the party just because I like his backstory. Second run, new Watcher and all of the new kids I can rotate through.
  9. I hope it's not the heartwracking guilt of raising her for five years just to have her crushed under the feet of a giant statue.
  10. All of them seem neat, but Serafen has the backstory that interests me most.
  11. Gosh this got difficult. I pretty much go through these games on story mode, so the personalities matter more to me than the class builds. My Watcher (pure Ranger), of course. Aloth - Best buds with my Watcher at the end of POE1, so he's with the party by default. Pallegina - My second favorite companion, but I always felt she was a little underdeveloped. Time to remedy that! Sarafen - He seems like he has a really interesting backstory, and I want to hear it. Maia - She just seems awesome. If she's not, I'll swap her out for Eder.
  12. What I'm taking away from this update is that maybe I should just take my companions out one at a time so they don't kill each other.
  13. Backed for digital deluxe. Then got to check-out and saw that they had D&D minis for the three returning companions as add-ons! I may have made some undignified noises when I saw that. So yeah, I'm a happy camper.
  14. I am soooo happy! Aloth, Eder, and Pellegina were my three favorite companions, and my Watcher will get to continue having adventures with them.
  15. Tyranny definitely sounds interesting with some real potential to go dark places as a PC. The premise reminds me a little of the Black Company novels, and I can't say that's a bad association.
