Least favorite?  Skaen.  Sure Woedica may as well be called Adolf Hitler, and Ondra has completely lost her marbles by this point, but at least they are not sniveling little skivey dbags blaming all their problems on others like Skaen.

 

 

  Skaen is pretty much the god of sniveling skivey dbag-ery. He is the god of hopeless resentment. If a rebellion was successful, he would now be the god of overthrowing the now successful former rebels whether they've made things better, worse or whatever.

 

 

 

 

 

Well then. Screw the Engwithans, I guess.

 

role-playing aside, this is definitely the best take to have. the engwithans were nothing more than a society so obsessed with their own self-importance that they collectively **** themselves when they realized the universe wasn't guided by any divine hands. and instead of maturing and dealing with this new anxiety they literally committed genocide to establish a more comfortable engwithan order. and then proceded to commit even more atrocities for the next 2000 years.

 

 

 Yes. The unenlightened making gods in their own image - not really a recipe for success.

Magran and Skaen.

Durance represented Magran well. Skaen because he is essentially the god of torture, like Hellraiser, but wimpier.

The constant bickering, whining, and flying off the handle is very reminiscent of a popular high schooler, and not very god-like.

I think that's the point. They're *not* all-powerful, they're *not* omnipotent, they're not really any better than Kith. They're not *actually* gods. They call themselves gods and they have immense power, but all they actually are is sentient complex constructs built around philosophical ideals--and they were built by Kith hands around Kith philosophies, so they are in the end every bit as ****ty and flawed as Kith.

 

That's self-evident, but it doesn't change the fact that Obsidian transformed them into one-dimensional caricatures of what they were in the original game and what they could have been. Instead of a rich, layered reflection of the ideals of an advanced ancient civilization, we get a bunch of petulant teenagers. Whoever was in charge of Deadfire's overall narrative design can't be the same person who worked on the original Pillars (and they're most likely anime aficionados).

 

 

Yep. A thousand and one souls produced... Teenagers? Mmm, tastes like advanced civilization to me.

Well the Engwithan technology was really advanced, so they probably had the internet.  The end result seems almost inevitable.

 It depends on the sum total of your social media posts. If you tweet about how resentful you are, Skaen. Write on facebook about how you feel so much benevolence that you need to oppress the monsters who are less benevolent, Hylea. Angry about people posting your picture on Snapchat? Wael

 

 Etc.

I find it interesting that from what he says when we first goes into his realm, Rymrgand already knows what Eothas's gonna do while the other gods has no clue.

I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that he lend the power to bring Eothas back so he could destroy the wheel in the first place.

Voted for Nemnok cause he just wants to be big and have knowledge and free imps from servitude. Those are good goals to have, you go Nemnok, I support you.

 

I disliked all the others really. I'm with those that say that the gods are overexposed in this game and lost the mysteriousness they had in the first game. Not really fond of their art either, I preferred it when they didn't really have a 'shape', like Wael is just all kinds of kith and Hylea was 'shown' as various kinds of birds. Them having an actual look kinda ruins them for me.

 

Also wasn't fond of the meetings, there was no real reason for you to be present at them anyway. They summon you there and then all they do is bicker together while you watch, I'd rather just get back to adventuring with my buddies please.

To be honest, I think Wael's appearance would be much improved if he didn't have the ridiculous cheshire cat grin. :getlost:

Voted for Nemnok because he is the only god with quest with real player agency, disliked everyone else because of annoying interludes I have to mash 11111 to skip that don't matter ****.

Berath hands down. But all things related to her in the endings are so depressing I am completely turned off from supporting her/him/it.

I dunno. Is it really just the grin? I think the weird babylike voice weirded me out more.

 

I mean, a grin can work. I like to think of Wael as a more grounded version of Warhammer's Tzeentch, and that guy is all about disturbing smiles:
