I want the monk (not trying to contrary :), but I will settle for the battle writers ....!!  Lets go Kickstarter!!!!

Are they that good?

 

 

Well, am game for hand-crafted encounters even if they have the intern doing them, and I always hate playing a monk, but when you experience them in combat they have a tendency to wipe the floor with you :)

 

Edit:  could be operating on the assumption that we won't see monks at all without the stretch goal, but could be wrong.

Uh, the stretch goal is Battle Brothers / Overhype Studios folks. Not related to Age of Decadence / Iron Tower Studios. Or do you mean something else?

 

I'll be happy if they can get to Kai Rosenkrantz.

Scott Hamm was a writer for Age of Decadence, and that's a game I played through the peaceful way, and I reckon the writing was pretty excellent.

Yes, as in like 100% certain. Ceres Games will also keep backing open after this kickstarter campaign ends, so I would say that monk will most likely be reached later on, even Bard, in fact, and Linux support, but it certainly depends on the activities on their site the coming months. :)

Ceres has pretty much said on their forums that they plan to have more classes such as Monk and Bard eventually implemented, it's just a question of when.  Psion is another one they mentioned as a possibility.  The monk stretch goal would just guarantee that monk ships with v 1.0 of the game, but otherwise it will likely be added in an update or expansion.  A lot of relevant feats like Stunning Fist and Deflect / Snatch Arrows may already be implemented (since those feats can actually be taken by characters of any class who meet the prerequisites).  The only reason adding monk will cost some money is they want to have high quality martial art animations rather than just settle for a generic punching animation like NWN did and probably some fitting portraits and monk robes.  Anyway, from the sound of it, it will be pretty easy for modders to add additional 3.5e classes and feats even if they aren't officially in the game for awhile.

They weren't as adamant as it appears from your post but yeah.

Psion! Yes, please!  :yes:

 

That's actually the class I would be most interested in.  There hasn't been a D&D based CRPG to feature a similar playable class since the Dark Sun games (psionicist).

I read somewhere that the devs are great fans of Dark Sun, and so am I! Psion? Gimme!!

 

EDIT: And my favourite playthrough of PoE1, a solo playthrough, was with a cipher. My body is ready for some ESP, as it were!

Also, who doesn't love Xavier?

Battle Writers stretch goal reached!

 

The writing is my main concern at this point; everything else seems to be in good shape. So that goal's a plus.

No worries. Dark Ansem is just his moonlight alter ego. Ansem will be unscathed in any post-release mud-slinging.

If it ends up sucking, it'll be unofficially renamed "Reams Behind". :devil:  But I don't think it will.
