  1. That sounds like an excellent sandwich. Regardless, has anyone tried PMing Josh or Brandon? They're pretty good about responding. Eventually. I think they just have a lot on their plates right now, and disappointment with any physical goods is probably pretty low on the priority list as compared with their patches and such. Truly, I know many of us that have sent Brandon PM's have eventually gotten a response. His responses also tend to be faster for those that are [Diplomatic] about it.
  2. I actually did the Ogre level when I was level 5. It was brutal, and I very nearly didn't get through it. You may want to adjust your tactics. I recommend using Aloth to do some crowd control, or get GM to help out with status effects. Or you can wait until you level up a couple more times, but I've also gone through with a level 12 party and you can take quite a bit of damage if you're not careful.
  3. My thought is that if there were old gods, they left somewhere and kinda just left the wheel to do its thing. I could see an issue where the "old gods" tried to come back and found these, I guess artificial intelligence gods, in their place. They were unsurprisingly unhappy about that and are looking to take their place back, and mayhaps that's why Woedica is trying to shore up power because the "new gods" can't seem to come to a consensus on what to do about it. My thought is that Eothas, being a generally good guy, wanted to find a way to live alongside the old gods and Woedica, having
  4. I agree about the cat hair. The PE shirt attracts cat hair so violently that I sometimes become a cat. Nice shirt otherwise. I really like the mouse pad. Way better than the one I had been using.
  5. This. I enjoy resting for free. I wish it wasn't such a hassle (also that the bonuses were better).
  6. This is literally what I'm asking of you. You mistake directness for aggression.
  7. My problem is that based on the criticism you have barely played the game and haven't given it a chance. If you don't want to have to defend your criticism you could have sent a private message to one of the devs, yet you posted in an open forum.
  8. Then as a business owner I'd think you'd be more understanding of what can be done with a budget. This game is phenomenal considering what they had to work with. Is it perfect? No, but it's very good for what they had to work with. This sets them up to make even better expansions and sequels. I understand many of your criticisms, but this game was designed for everything to be possible. If you want free, unhindered exploration your game is gonna be Skyrim. These IE style games are about story as much as exploration, and following what very little you have to do to progress the main plot is
  9. It stands for Original Poster, so that would be you. edit: Ninja'd
  10. Atheists generally believe that all religions are man-made and manufactured in a very obvious fashion. The allegory here is not subtle. The religious establishment that Thaos represents is 1) a system of lies created for the purpose of control and domination, 2) relies on the premise that people are too weak-minded to bear the truth, 3) obscurantist to the extreme and hostile to "science", 4) entirely willing to commit atrocities in order to preserve the status quo, and 5) not only unnessecary for the world's peace and prosperity, but an active impediment thereto. These are the same arguments
  11. I think that's what the point they were trying to make with the gods are "fake." They're plenty real, but what really is the line between a god and an extremely powerful being?
  12. For the god of righteousness or whatever, he's gonna have a hard time explaining why my death godlike murdered every single person in Gilded Vale...
  13. My initial loading time can be rough. When I load a save for the first time when starting up my load time can take minutes. Once I'm actually playing the load times are fine. Not great, but fine. Much better than I had as a kid with BG2!
  14. Iovara expected me to care the gods were manufactured way more than I actually did. It gave me a new perspective on them for sure. I kind of assume things man-made are just as flawed as their creator, but considering what I knew about their infighting and the fact that one god helped a lesser life form assassinate another god told me they were all pretty douchey anyway. The only god I had any appreciation for was Hylea after she told me her preference for how to resolve the hollowborn crisis, but at most I only appreciated her motivations. I'd agree that Iovara came up pretty suddenly, but
  15. You'd think Thaos would have been aware of that. At a minimum the gods he created would have picked up on there being another, greater force and Woedica likely would have given Thaos a heads up. But you also may have a point. We don't have a clear motive as to why Woedica was trying to shore up power, other than to possibly make a power play (or get revenge) against the other gods. Perhaps future installments will see the return of who/what created the wheel in the first place?
  16. I remember a conversation about them only finding the wheel and the empty silence. I wish I could remember where that was. I also doubt a human could attain godhood through the passage of the wheel. Thaos had to use that big machine in order to create the current gods, so I suspect it's a much more involved process.
  17. It's not that we necessarily care whether or not people hate their tyrannical leaders; it's more that tyrannical leader has something we want and won't give it to us.
  18. Assuming you're referencing the chests on the second floor of Brighthollow, then to my knowledge they are. I've been storing a bunch of stuff in them and nothing has disappeared after several hours of gameplay.
  19. I was kind of annoyed when OE let the limerick thing be changed, but seeing the butthurt about the change makes me glad they did it. People need to get over themselves.
  20. I myself have gotten to the point to where I don't know how I feel about this anymore. Therefore, I'm going to ignore it until I forget about it and go back to playing the game. I hope others adopt a similar stance.
