  3. Thanks Fenixp - I have queried Admin if they would like to do this! The discord invite link below is found on the Obsidian Twitch Page. https://discord.gg/obsidian Everyone should feel free to stop by and tell us their favorite breakfast food, which should be waffles, because there is technically no other answer. Thanks Ethics Gradient! Will add it to the list.

  8. Thanks everyone so far! So some ideas/input, so far: Affirmation of existing forum community; Explore a model similar to uPlay/Origin; Tie access to certain communities to game ownership; Explore designing an Obsidian client that incorporates RPG into character/account. Explore designing an Obsidian client that facilitates RPG between members, i.e. Discord/Steam connectivity I will try to keep up with the ideas shared here and via PM. The more options the better - as well, if you do have online examples for your suggestions, that would be great too. Thanks again for the early engagement!
  9. Dear denizens, trolls, long-timers and new-timers, To say that the history of the community has been filled with joys and challenges, losses and discoveries, perhaps goes without saying. We, nonetheless, never want to take you all for granted. Whether it has been games for which we have designed for other publishers or our own titles, such as contained within the World of Eternity, you - our community of supporters and fans, beta testers and creative companions – have, do and shall help us continue to make great gaming experiences: of this we have no doubt! As we begin to anticipate the milestone launch of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire in 2018, we are beginning to dream dreams. One of those is an integrated online hub that brings together the fragmented nature of our social media presence. W are dreaming of an interface that brings together the following OBS' presence into a coherent ecosystem: Website Forum community Reddit Fig Kickstarter Instagram YouTube Facebook Twitter Twitch Discord As we embark on this new phase, we invite you to share with us your thoughts and insights of what you have experienced as prime examples of well-integrated online communities – especially those that reflect multiple entry and access points throughout social media. What could we add to this dreaming that would make such an experience not just okay or good, but great! We are not sure we can include all of our dreams initially, need alone those which we know you will offer. We are certain, however, as we have learned with your - our community of supporters and advocates - that taking these steps together not only helps OBS continue to make great gaming experiences, but explicitly reflects that you help us be who we are! For that we have been, are and shall be ever so grateful! So, please do post your thoughts and ideas below. Post links – share concept ideas! Contact us through Facebook, Twitter, or PM Fionavar. We hope to launch a new online ecosystem to coincide with the launch of Deadfire in 2018 and with your support and engagement, we know it will be awesome!

  10. It's a working from the Roost kind of day surrounded by canine furry four-leggeds doing most distracting and endearing things!
  11. Thread Edited: OBS does not tolerate piracy and/or its advocacy. Please consider whether posting in this regard is worth me flying down from the Roost, as I much prefer to be lazy ...
  12. Thread edited. Note: Humour about sexual harassment & violation or rape is not appropriate on these fora. Though the intent to use humour might be a worthy philosophical exploration, that is better left on private fora of which these are not F
  13. Prayers and Light to you and yours majestic
  14. Thanks for sharing Azdeus - appreciate the reflection and time! I do not think I can rationalise shifting to a new system considering the size of the library Paizo does seem to be incorporating some game play shifts that echo what I understand has been implement in 5e.
  15. How are you enjoying 5? I am heavily invested in Pathfinder so likely staying for time being.
  16. What system are you running Azdeus?
  17. I am sorry to hear about this for you and yours. I hope in this stage of life's journey there will be space to celebrate his life, even in the grieving and discomfort that accompanies him and you.
  18. I was thinking of something more along the lines of a big green wing hug symbol
  19. Working on the weekly blog and going for a new ink consult ...
  20. Easter Sunday Worship, Easter Sunday brunch, PhD editing & a glorious Easter Sunday nap on the Roost for the Big Green
  21. Email ... lots of email for various hats, including OBS ... if those were letters of the paper'd variety, I think I would need an old skool mail-room!
  22. The Big Green was at the gym today and lifting his wings is currently very fatigued owing to the chest focus
  23. If you look at the bottom left of the website page you should see an RSS feed Conbot: do you see that?
