Quick update.

 

Pulled up a Level 6 character that was very early in Act 1.  They had just started exploring Neketaka and hardly done any quests.

 

Got The Honored Guest invite immediately on map change to the World Map.

 

So it is in fact possible to get the invite VERY early.  How early is a matter to be seen.

Thinking about this now, and I don't have time to test it as I am literally running out the door after I hit "Post", I think it might trigger when one enters the World Map for the first time on a save where the trigger (whatever it is) has already been set.

 

My first test was with a save where the party was ALREADY on the World Map.  I got the invite when I left the Deck of Many Things and hit the World Map again.  My second test was when I left Queen's Bearth and entered the World Map.  Got it immediately again.

 

So for folks who are already past Port Maje I would see if going to the World Map gets the invite. :)

Yeah, I am hyped too, but...what is this?

Thanks for bringing that up. I'll contact GOG to fix. 

 

 

The Linux version of the DLC remains unavailable on GOG at the moment, the patch is available.

So I went to my account (where one manages the pledges and all that) in order to redeem my season pass key, and for some reason I have two of those. No idea why. :blink:

People who pledged at the CE tier got a complimentary key on top of the one that was included with their reward tier.

Or you can reach out to us through support and we'll give you a refund for the $20. <3

It should be possible, yeah. Board your ship and travel around a little; you should get the message pretty soon (that’s what happened to me at any rate.)

Will Beasts of Winter be available for Linux? I only see Windows and Mac on GOG.

Where do I find Deck of Many Things?
I got letter from Vatnir. Should I finish Beast of Winter to See this ship?

Yes, I went to Neketaka and after leaving port I get the invitation.

It’s sailing around Deadfire, waiting for you to find it

It's a merchant ship (cyan symbol on the world map), but with a named captain. Don't think it has anything to do with Beast of Winter. 

 

I visited the ship to shop, then I sunk it, got a disappointingly small amount of loot, reloaded, and then murdered the crew to take all the stuff. Tenacious buggers.

So, this DLC is not part of the Premium Digital reward? I need clarification because GOG Galaxy is very confusing about this stuff. It still wants me to buy the soundtrack, even though i got it as part of my reward a long time ago...
