KindCollusion Posted May 30, 2018 Share Posted May 30, 2018 (edited) I haven't gotten too far into the game but I kind of feel like the characters are a bit needlessly polarized. Eider has always been very nuanced in how he questioned his faith. It kind of makes sense that he lost much of it from the events of the first game.Pallegina, on the other hand, didn't seem to have any issue with Hylea until council of stars when the Goddess ignored her. Fast forward to deadfire and Pallegina seems to have some vendetta against the Gods and we find out she had her Godlike connection severed when she was very young. It seems like they added a bunch of new details to her character just to make her more anti-theist. It's awkward how anti-religious she suddenly is in this game. It redefines her whole character out of nowhere.Xoti is almost a parody of religious people, a sort of "ignorance is bliss" stereotype...Now don't get me wrong, I believe in God, but i find this interaction of polar opposites kind of off-putting. I was okay with the premise of God's being created by man. It is a fantasy world after all. I liked reading His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I like having debates with atheists. I just don't want the prevailing theme to be a war of straw men if that makes any sense. I dunno, lol post your thoughts people Edited May 30, 2018 by KindCollusion 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
