I created an item for this game, just as I did for PoE1.
For Deadfire I created a warbow called Frostseeker (was actually meant to be a hunting bow, but I managed to screw that up all by myself by missclicking in the forumula submited to Obsidian).
It was great fun and surprise when I found the item at an encounter (my item for PoE1 was located in a store early in the game so I expected more or less the same for Deadfire).
What I really like with the item is the visual effects that go with it, which is really cool. I also like the upgrades it has. So really nice to see it in the game.
The only thing that feels a bit embarrasing is the item's description. In PoE1 I wrote a long description which I thought a lot about and was satisfied with (I'm not saying it was good, but I put some effort into it atleast). Then when I found the item in game I noticed Obsidian had changed the text a bit, which was totally fine. I wanted it to be consistant with the other writing in the game, so it was no problem.
Jumping forward, I was writing the item description for my bow in Deadfire and I thought that it was no point in putting to much time into it, since Obsidian would be editing it anyway. I wrote a brief text and upon finding the item in game I could see that they had kept my text intact.
