Old Thread here: https://forums.obsid...ns-and-romance/
 
Handy table from the previous thread:
 

Does anyone know which companions are romance options? Anyone watching the streams?
 
I don't want to get spoilers for the game, except in this case, because it might influence my class choices. If Xoti is a romance option, for example, I'd rather not play as a priest.
 
Edit: According to this thread on reddit, all companions are romanceable, except Eder and Pallegina:

It is also a good idea to check the companions favorable dispositions:

and the last few posts:

 

Yeah my party always just had Imoen in it if my character was good/neutral and...well...my evil party wasn't really constant except for Viconia and Edwin. (Also Edwin's ending is just...really?)



 

 

 

Am I the only person in the world to genuinely like Jaheira? She can be quite an ass at times, but I really appreciated her no-nonsence attitude.

Oh wait somebody wrote that they love Jaheira while I was typing. Nevermind :grin:


Nope. She's an arbitrary party member (along with Jan and Keldorn) in my every playthrough. I really like how even without romance your character can develop a strong bond with her.

 

Same, I very rarely ran a party without those three (and never without Jan). I also like how in the end of ToB tne narrator mentions "your closest companions", and Jaheira's portrait is one of the first to flash across the screen.

 

I adored Jaheira. She was always in my party. I didn't romance her, though. My interests lay elsewhere, as is illustrated by my avatar. :grin: Love ya, Vicki!

It's my favorite of all companions. I tend to get distracted when this animation starts playing during conversations, I just stop looking at the dialogue window and start watching Xoti instead.

This conversation got me rifling through the folder with my BG2 screenshots again. Almost every one of Jan's banters with the other companions is hilarious (my favourite ones being those with Keldorn, Sarevok, Edwin and Minsc).

Not to be entirely off-topic: I really like how Serafen turned out (and his voice-over is great): he's probably gonna be my favourite of all of the new companions.

I love how the biggest storm you get during the course to Poko island, there's a companion options with Serafen where you simply ask him to be by your side which seems unique to only that situation.

 

Gawd I wish there were more. If only there's an option to piggyback ride Serafen with an Orlan char, Eder style... Now I know what needs to be drawn.

The animations are adorable, but I can't help noticing that Aloth's idle book-flipping-through animation looks like he's holding the book upside down? When you hold a book the front cover is in the left hand, but in the animation it's being held in his right. My only conclusion is that it's upside down :facepalm:

Aloth's my favorite too, but also because I prefer when friendships/relationships carry through several games i.e. Mass Effect.

I love all companion-specific animations, such a cool touch. My favorite with Aloth is when he locks his hands and starts neurotically drumming his fingers. I am sad there is no animation for Serafen though, would have been cool if he did something too.

romance that carry over can be good or bad . Sometimes it's good..and sometimes it's bad .

 

So on that one , it's really depand on which romance we talking about . 

 

But..I'm more fond of 'Love at 1st sight' ..even though I wasn't a believer of such a thing . Hear my past self scoff at the idea ! 'Love at first sight ?! Ridiculous! probably some Teenager fantasy like those BBF stuff.....'' . 

 

Then it happen..and you age fast and know you were the one being ridiculous  :lol:

Eh I did not mean romance in particular, more like an established friendship, where you already have some history with the character. Those will always be a priority to me. For the same reason I always keep Eder and Pallegina in the party, because they are friends to my char. For the same reason I kept Jaheira, Minsc and Imoen in BGII and then Sarevok in ToB, because history. (forgot Viconia, her too)

 

My cynical old soul stopped believing in love at first sight :grin:

romance or friendship..

 

same thing when you think about it . You can be happy to see Garrus back! Or hate to see Kaidan is back... :getlost:

 

Doesn't have to be a romance . 

 

I was cynical...too..then I took an arrow to the brain , nowdays I laugh like a maniac at everything..and I'm banned from alot of places  :lol:
