  1. I guess Chris Avellone Novella never was written. Now that we are familiarized with PoE setting, I hope, at least, to read more "short novels" in the future, while we are waiting for PoE 2 release . I liked the 4 short stories.
  2. Nice link. I've visited the PoE landscapes on steam and they are beautiful. You can appreciate the great work done by area designers. Spoilers alert http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197980011801/images/?appid=291650
  3. Jeje. AndreaColombo: all that you say about if people know the truth about Eora's gods would be great for the PoE2 plot. Our main character could take the Thaos role of avoiding people to know the truth, in order to keep the balance and avoid the chaos in the Eastern Reach. By good ways or evil ways jeje.
  4. I liked the 3 stories, mainly the Eder's story. I really like Gilded Vale setting, with Lord Raedric's iron fist ruling the village and the Legacy's paranoia. Playing PoE, when I arrived to Gilded Vale, watching the hanged guys and listening the announcing bell that gave the bad news about the birth of Raedric's son, I thought "wow, this game is what I waited for many years". PoE lore is superb. In order to have a better experience, new players should learn about Eora's setting before playing, as I did.
  5. Josh talks about the possibility of developing a turnbased game in PoE setting. I don't like the idea. Long life to Real Time with Pause Combat!!!
  6. Writting these 4 stories has been a great idea. I'm enjoying them. Have you planned to release more short stories? Thanks in advance
  7. Question for developers: Are you going to release more short stories in the future? Short stories are a great idea.
  8. ***Spoilers Alert*** in page 14 says: "When Neolas asked about the Legacy, the herbalist confirmed that the crisis was all but a rumor in Maiden Falls." What does "all but a rumor" means? that the Maiden Falls is suffering the Legacy or not? I don't remember when playing PoE if Glanffatan region suffers the Legacy like Dirwood region
  9. 19th century?? I would say this setting is simillar to 16th century renaissance period: Firearms are rudimentary and Vailian Republics, the most advanced culture, are simillar to the Italian city states disputed by the French and we, the Spanish during 16th. It has been a succesful choice to create PoE not only in the tipical medieval setting. PoE combines medieval cultures with renaissance cultures. Congrats to the developers for this feature ;D
  10. I've enjoyed the Ratcatcher. I'm not english native and I need to use a translator for a lot of words. For this reason, the size of the stories is ok for me. The PoE setting is one of the best features of the game, and reading short stories in this beautiful setting is great.
  11. I've read the Sagani's short story and I think is a good idea to release short stories like these, better even than the Chis Avelone novella. Are you going to release "Blood Register" (second short history) today? I hope to see more small histories in the future. Maybe introducing some setting of PoE 2?
  12. I agree. Vailian Republics are the next step. What we know of the Eastern Reach's geography is what we see in the map, and it shows completely the Vaillian Republics region. We know some lore of the Vaillian region, and I think that a sequel here would attract the players more than a new undiscovered region (this better for a PoE 3). It would be great to see the entire continen of the Eastern Reach. Another interesting place would be the Penitential Regency of Readceras ;D
  13. There is a lot of people who doesn't want to replay the game in order to access the expansion There is a lot of people that want to continue the expansion after finishing the original game and not from a previous saved game Devs should say anything about if they are going to solve this issue
  14. That's crazy: let's play the first part of the expansion and after that, kill Thaos again. Oh no, the second part of the expansion has arrived. Well, let's play the second part of WM and kill Thaos for third time. Poor Thaos. Brilliant and ultrarealistic story design. I hope WM events don't affect to PoE 2.
  15. This is a big mistake. Why the devs didn't continue the story after the final battle? PoE has enough content and history. I only played once BG, NWN, IWD series, as I've done with PoE. I'm dissapointed with the only option of reload an old saved game for accessing to WM instead of the last saved game. That breaks the story.
  16. That would be the logical thing. End with Thaos and continue a new story. I hope they implement the access to White March after activating the machine.
  17. Obsidian should do a bypass, and (spoiler alert) after activating the "you know what", the group should have the chance of travel to the White March. Obsidian devs, you should fix that.
  18. I was going to buy the expansion, but after seeing that you can't access to it after finishing the original game, I'm not interested in buying it. The expansion should have followed the events after finishing the original game. This is more attractive than simply add more areas and quests for mid level groups to the original game. The original game doesn't need more content, needs a continuation of the history. I'll wait to PoE 2 to see a new history that continues the first game.
  19. I don't like the idea of starting an expansion at mid-game after finishing the history. The original game has enough (and beautiful) content. It would have been great to see a new history after the events of the end of the game.
  20. We can read lots of news about Chris Avellone, but nothing related to the Novella. It's weird to see the expansion released before than Novella. I raised my pledge because of the Novella.
  21. You can choose to have the expansion content scaled to your high level characters. And, as noted, there's an autosave right before entering Sun in Shadows. Surely it's not that big a deal that you start there instead of right at the very end? I think I'll wait for PoE 2.
  22. I agree. This means that the purpose of the expansion is to add more content for mid-level parties. I would have preferred a new story after ending with Thaos for high level parties. The original game has enough content and doesn't need to add more. I think Obsidian have commited a mistake. I want to play the expansion after activating the machine. I donĀ“t want to load a previous savegame. If they not change this, I'm not interested in buying the expansion.
  23. I don't like the fact that you can travel to the expansion areas without finishing the main game. This means the expansion doesn't continue the main story and it's only a new pack of areas and subquests. Furthermore, it's designed for mid-level parties instead of 12 level parties. Then, how will affect the decissions we made after the final battle (what to do with the trapped souls) in the new expansion? I guess they don't have any relevance. What's the importance of those decissions? perhaps are they relevant for the second part of expansion? or for PoE 2?
