  1. Ahoy everyone, We did it. WE DID IT! Not only will Obsidian give us a Black Isle for free but we also managed to fund raise the Black Isle Bastards pirate group. This was quite a ride and I would like to thank everyone who has pledged to our cause. Thank you very, very much! Meanwhile word about the nefarious Black Isle Bastards has spread throughout Deadfire Archipelago and beyond. Even Pallegina, Edér and Aloth have heard rumors about them. So now that we have our island and our pirate group you may wonder what is left to do? The icing on top of the cake, that’s what’s missing! And therefore we would like to equip the Black Isle Bastards with a unique item in the game. So once more I ask for your support. Let us give them a treasure worthy of an infamous pirate group! In order to decide on what kind of special item we could give to the Black Isle Bastards that is what this poll is for. Please note, that the vote is not anonymous because I might consider the votes of members who actually pledged for this cause to be more important than the votes of those who do not support this cause. Disclaimer: I am the sole person who is collecting the funds and who is responsible for the donations. Obsidian Entertainment is not involved in these donations in any way, however they are fully supportive of this project. Donating here will NOT give you a copy of the game (exceptions may apply as specified in the F.A.Q.). (This artwork was commissioned from TariToons also known as Buttercheese on this forum.) F.A.Q.: 1.) What exactly would I be pledging for? A: You would be helping us to crowd fund a special item for our pirate crew who call themselves the “Black Isle Bastards” for Pillars of Eternity 2. Donating here will NOT give you a copy of the game (exceptions may apply as seen under question 8, 9 and 10). 2.) How do you make sure that your backer made content fits into the game world and does not break immersion? A: We are going to give Obsidian only a rough idea on our pirate crew. We will let Obsidian Entertainment then work out the details themselves to ensure that our pirate crew fits seamlessly into the game and its lore. Similarly, Obsidian will make sure that our special piece of equipment is going to fit seamlessly into the game. 3.) Will there be a Black Isle in the game? A: Yes, that has already been confirmed. 4.) How large in size is the Black Isle going to be? A: It is going to be a tiny island. And it would only be able to support one structure on it at most. A ship does count as a structure in this context. 5.) I saw that there is an option to pledge an additional 8$ to get a "Black Isle Bastards" forum badge. Is that money used to crowd fund the pirate crew in the game or the special piece of equipment for the Black Isle Bastards? A: No, it is not used that way. The "Black Isle Bastards" forum badge is funded independently from the "Black Isle Bastards" pirate crew and the item. 6.) Why do the $8 for the BIB forum badge not count for the crowd funding of the Black Isle Bastards or the item? Originally we had planned on crowd funding an island. We would have had to raise $5000 for the "Black Isle" but then Obsidian decided to give us, their community, the "Black Isle" for free, as a gift. The BIB forum badge serves as a token of appreciation and a thank you to Obsidian for giving us an island for free. 7.) How much money have you raised to incorporate the “Black Isle Bastards” into the game? A: 5000$! Thank you everyone who contributed for this! The Black Isle Bastards have been funded! 8.) What are you collecting money for now? A: We are going to try to fund an item for the Black Isle Bastards for which we need to raise additional $750. If we don't manage to collect these $750, then we will use the surplus money to buy additional game copies and put them into a lottery for our donators. 9.) What happens with the other rewards (other than the pirate crew and the ship) on the tier "Build a Pirate Party" on the Fig campaign? A: By default we will pass up on them. Only if there is a very generous donor to our cause who has donated considerably more to our overall collected money than any others then he or she will get all the additional rewards. 10.) What happens with the other rewards on the tier "Create an Item" on the Fig campaign? The additional rewards from that tier go to the donator with the second highest amount of our overall collected money. If there are multiple donators who are close to be the second highest donator they can share the additional rewards but only if they can peacefully reach a agreement on who gets what. 11.) Is Obsidian Entertainment bound to the results of this poll? No, they are not. The results of this poll serve as suggestions. However, Obsidian Entertainment can deviate from them if they think that that would be to the overall advantage of their game. 12.) How can I pledge for this? You can't anymore. WE ARE FUNDED!!! 13.) Is there a deadline for when you need to have raised $5750 ? A: Yes, the deadline is 25th April 2017 23:59 PM (GMT+2) 14.) What does Obsidian Entertainment think about your project? A: See for yourself: 15.) How much money have you raised so far for your cause? Base goal: $5000 / $5000 (100% funded) Stretchgoal ("Create an Item"): $750 / $750 (100% funded) overall: $5846.06 / $5750 66 backers biggest donation: $1998 donation on average: $88.58 16.) Will there be any ingame recognition for the donors of this project? Currently, that is up for discussion. We are looking for creative, easy to implement ways, to give our donors recognition in the game while that must in no way break the fourth wall/immersion. Feel free to share your ideas on this! 17.) How are you going to contact the donors of this project? For cases, that I need to reach donors specifically, I would send an email to the email address the donors provided on PayPal. If you have donated please make sure to always check that email address until this whole campaign has ended!
  2. Greetings everyone, it seems there is only one unique club in the game, but many unique swords. So Aarik approached me and asked if they could change the type of the Kapana Taga to club. The Kapana Taga is based on a macuahuitl which can be seen as both a sword and a club. You will be able to find many sources on the Internet that call it club or sword or both. The question here is, what is your preference. Would you like its type changed to club? Everything else about the weapon would stay the same. Also note, the decision to change its type or not is not bound by the result of this poll. I would just like to know what everyone thinks about this. But in the end, the backers of the weapon will have the final word on this.
  3. Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know, our BLACK ISLE BASTARDS badge is available now on the Fig campaign under "extras" Whoohoo! Just look at it! Raise your pledge by 8$ and join us, the Black Isle Bastards, on this forum! You can see this as a thank you to Obsidian for giving us a Black Isle for free Note, if you'd like to you can also help to make the Black Isle Bastards come true in Pillars of Eternity 2! Attention: Buying the BIB badge is completely independent from crowd funding the Black Isle Bastards as a pirate crew. Buying the BIB badge will NOT contribute to the crowd funding of the pirate crew! Buying the BIB badge is meant as a thank you to Obsidian for giving us a "Black Isle" for free!
  4. Greetings everyone, Obsidian Entertainment will give us a "Black Isle" for free in the game. They also supported us in founding a pirate crew on this community called the "Black Isle Bastards". And this thread is about making the "Black Isle Bastards" come true in the game. One of the biggest points of criticism of backer content has always been that it breaks immersion and does not fit into the game. To avoid this, we will give Obsidian Entertainment only a very rough idea of what the Black Isle Bastards are about. We will let them then work out the details to make sure the Black Isle Bastards do fit SEAMLESSY into the game. And in order to decide on that "rough idea" that is what this poll is for. The options in the poll are not necessarily mutually exclusive and yet I do not allow multiple options because I would like to see the most favorite options. Also the vote is not anonymous because I might consider the votes of members who actually pledged for this cause to be more important than the votes of those who do not support this cause. Note: I might sometimes update the poll options. I will try to do it as rarely as possible. But please make sure to come back here regularly and check if your vote is still valid! Before you donate for this cause, be absolutely sure to have read and understood the F.A.Q. at the bottom of this post! Feel free to pose questions any time! Also the F.A.Q. may be expanded upon, so be sure to check on it regularly. Disclaimer: I am the sole person who is collecting the funds and who is responsible for the donations. Obsidian Entertainment is not involved in these donations in any way, however they are fully supportive of this project. Donating here will NOT give you a copy of the game (an exception may apply for one of the most generous donors as specified in the F.A.Q.). (Note: The purpose of this image is only to support this crowd funding. Obsidian Entertainment alone decides on the design of the Black Isle. And it is going to be a much much smaller island.

What exactly would I be pledging for? A: You would be helping us to crowd fund a pirate crew who call themselves the “Black Isle Bastards” for Pillars of Eternity 2. Donating here will NOT give you a copy of the game (exceptions may apply as seen under question 9, 10 and 11). 2.) What does the term "bastard" mean in the lore of the game? Has that term even been established yet? A: The term "bastard" has not been established yet in the lore of the game, however, it would have the same meanings as in our world. 3.) How do you make sure that your backer made content fits into the game world and does not break immersion? A: We are going to give Obsidian only a rough idea on our pirate crew. We will let Obsidian Entertainment then work out the details themselves to ensure that our pirate crew fits seamlessly into the game and its lore. 4.) Will there be a Black Isle in the game? A: Yes, that has already been confirmed. 5.) How large in size is the Black Isle going to be? A: It is going to be a tiny island. And it would only be able to support one structure on it at most.

How much money do you have to raise to incorporate the “Black Isle Bastards” into the game? A: 5000$ 9.) What happens if you reach more than 5000$? A: We are going to try to fund an item for the Black Isle Bastards for which we need to raise additional $750. If we don't manage to collect these $750, then we will use the surplus money to buy additional game copies and put them into a lottery for our donators. 10.) What happens with the other rewards (other than the pirate crew and the ship) on the tier "Build a Pirate Party" on the Fig campaign? A: By default we will pass up on them. Only if there is a very generous donor to our cause who donates considerably more than any others then he or she will get all the additional rewards. 11.) What happens with the other rewards on the tier "Create an Item" on the Fig campaign? The additional rewards from that tier go to the donator with the second highest amount.

However, Obsidian Entertainment can deviate from them if they think that that would be to the overall advantage of their game. 13.) How can I pledge for this? A: Have a look here You may need a PayPal account for this. 14.) Is there a deadline for when you need to have raised $5750 ? A: Yes, the deadline is 25th April 2017 23:59 PM (GMT+2) 15.)

  5. Ahoy fellow freebooter Bastards from the Black Isle, I just saw that OBS unlocked 10 more slots for "Create an Item" on the fig campaign. Basically you give 750$ and get all the game related stuff & fuzz of the lower tiers plus you can create a unique item (in colaboration with OBS - and within limits of course). Now... since we are already aiming to put the Black Isle Bastards crew into the game (preferably onto the Black Isle - which we also managed to smuggle into the game - boy, we are good!) I though it may be neat if the player could get anything alse out of that who-knows-what-to-expect-encounter but mere XP. So I wanted to ask if some of you are willing to throw some more money into a pot. If we reach 750$ I could then upgrade my pledge to that "create an item" tier. I'd say the most generous donator gets all the other goodies (besides the game itself - I need that one ). I have a paypal account, so donations would be done like with the BIB crew. I could open up a poll in order to determine which kind of item (eye patch, funky pirate hat, a hook, a wooden leg, you name it) we want to go for. But first I'd say that we collect all the ideas here - or if you even want that item in the first place. Another apporach could be that we take this tier (or multiple of them, depends on the money we collected) instead of the pirate crew - but only if the crew fails to collect enough money (5000$). Then we would already have an appropriate alternative that still has something to do with the BIBs. What Do you say? I guess we'll need to be quick... p.s.: Of course you don't need to give money for the BIB pirate crew or the BIB forum badge in order to take part in this.
  6. (Note: The purpose of this image is only to support the crowd funding of our pirate crew. By no way does it make any decisions on the Black Isle Bastards' ship. Credits for the font used on the image go to Raymond Larabie: http://www.1001fonts.com/vinque-font.html#license Credits for the image go to: https://de.fotolia.com/p/205428757 ) Ahoy mateys! We have had a lot of support from Obsidian, making the Black Isle come true and creating the Black Isle Bastards forum badge for us on this forum. Now, we would actually like to make the Black Isle Bastards come true in Pillars of Eternity 2. We are therefore collecting money in another thread, and some people have already generously donated to our cause. So at this point a huge thank you to Obsidian Entertainment and to our donors. Our next step is to discuss our ship, how else can the Black Isle Bastards sail through the Deadfire Archipelago and reach their destination, the Black Isle? This is what this thread is for. You can vote in this thread and comment on the subject of the ship of the Black Isle Bastards! Also feel free to make new suggestions about the the ship at any time! Note: As always a poll like this serves simply as suggestions to Obsidian and Obsidian is in no way bound to the results of this poll. For the first question see the links below to get more information of the different types of ships: 2.) Barque 3.) Sloop 4.) Brig 5.) Brigantine 6.) Canoe 7.) Caravel 8.) Junk (Ship) 9.) Pirogue 10.) Schooner 11.) Frigate See you on board, mate!
