mokona posted a topic in Pillars of Eternity: General Discussion (NO SPOILERS)At $2.6M, Obsidian added the Adventurer's Hall to the world. If you don't like a companion, or if you don't like any of the companions, you can build your own custom parties to play through the game. 6 races and 11 classes have been confirmed for Project Eternity. There are sixty-six (66) potential race-class combinations from godlike rangers to aumaua paladins. The player's main character will take up one of those options and Official companions will fill up seven to eight of the other possible combinations (your main character may or may not overlap with one of the companions). Do you think you'll hire someone from the Adventurer's Hall? Can you permanently make a hired adventurer part of your Player House or Stronghold if you plan to swap them in and out of your party regularly? I suspect that at least half of my party will not be the main companions so I want to make heavy use of the Adventurer's Hall.
I know it's still not a reality, but I'm pretty confident we can get to 2.6 million before the Kickstart ends (and we still don't know how the paypal section is going), BUT I had an interesting Idea. As I gather the Hall of Heroes will give us the ability to create custom companions much like Icewind Dale saga did. But, what's the main difference between IWD dale companions and BG and P:T companions? Party banters and personal quests! So... how about this: When creating a custom companion we can choose a prefabricated 'story' for him and that will grant us banters and quests! It doesn't need to be too specific, like an only rogue past, or only elf past and such. There could be maybe up to five 'story' and they don't even need to have the same detail and complexity of normal companions. They just need to give the feeling that the custom companion is not 'lifeless'. I know that this is well beyond the scope of the 2.6 million goal and will probably need more founding, but I think it is a much needed addition for all of the players that don't plan on using the Hall of Heroes for how 'blank' the companions could end up being. Thoughts?
