Did you know that If you go to Luminous Bathhouse in Periki's Overlook and stand near the pool with a pet, the pet might randomly just walk in the pool and go totally underwater without drowning?

 

Also, Isn't it silly how you can't sleep in the streets of Neketaka, but you can instead go to the crypt and have a good night's sleep in that horrible haunted place?

 

Or you can destroy, slaughter and mercilessly rob every single ship you encounter and be considered polite, diplomatic and benevolent person?

 

Please share your silliest remarks.

I'm more impressed by the Bear companion that climbed the tower in Raedric's hold. :w00t:

 

Once you clean the Crypt, it'll actually be safer than the streets of Neketaka.

 

But good point about slaughtering ships. You can even attack Vailian ships with Pallegina on board. She will help you fight her countrymen. And Eder and Xoti will not complain!

I'm more impressed by the Bear companion that climbed the tower in Haedric's hold. :w00t:

 

Once you clean the Crupt, it'll actually be safer than the streets of Neketaka.

Yeah this is very immersion breaking. They should probably do something about it.

 

You can always choose not to do these immersion breaking things though.

The cute little companion animations play in every conversation, so you can be debating with gods about the fate of the world and Tekehu will be standing a few feet away pootling about with a little floating water fish

Opening locked chests in plain sight, is somehow OK with NPC's watching you.

 

At one point you can tell people you are tavern servants asking to take their order. You might be a group of five people, wearing amour and weapons, but sure, you are also tavern servants.

 

(More to come, when I remember it)

To be honest, if I could shape water into animated statues at will, I would probably start doing it seconds into every conversation instead of just zoning out.

You can't rest on streets because of Baldur's Gate. However PoE straight up doesn't allow you rest instead of being interupted by a guard.

It is also possible to keep the ship crew happy by feeding them nothing but hagfish thru the entire game if you also remember to either pay or give them something a little bit better to drink than water.

Yes. On my third PoE pt I wanted to sneak into Raedrics Hold. But It wouldn't make sense for the Bear to climb a rope. So I decided to slaughter everyone as in my second run. :shrugz:

I find it a bit strange that almost everyone person on the streets of Neketaka know that i'm a Watcher and want to purchase Xoti's lamp.

I did it once. I also changed clothes for anyone not using armor in the beginning of the game, but I stopped bothering quickly. There are some nice Principi clothes. :)

I sometimes put on casual clothes when inside a bar or whatever. But it's just a bit of a hassle doing it for every character and taking off weapons and that.

When it comes to these things, what strikes me as silly is the main fault that games like these always tend to have: we are in a Renaissance-style world, but when something happens, everybody in the game world instantly knows it. That's a bit off-putting, I have to say. Like, I cause a scene at the harbor, walk up to the top of the city, and regular folks walking on the street will comment upon what happened in the harbor. Yeah, right. It's just about possible that they know something happened, but in a city like Neketaka, with all of its citizens, how could they know it was me?

It's like choosing a Deceptive dialogue option when you are alone with your companions and an npc you kill roght after the conversation. How can you get reputation from this?

 

The only possible explanation is that someone in your party is gossiping everywhere and telling your secrets. Since it happens in PoE1 and 2, it could be one of the returning companions. Aloth can be secretive and Pallegina doesn't suit this.

 

It's Eder. He is to blame.

All the ostensibly "abandoned" pets, so conveniently placed on just about every single map, are actually Eder's network of spies. He does get along with animals, doesn't he?

He doesn't have little birds. He has little puppies and kittens.

This. This really annoys me soooo much.

It's a weird-ass relic of BG/BG2, where if you tried to rest in town you were ordered to go to an inn instead.

Meanwhile, in Deadfire, in town you can wait around for literally days, but you're not allowed to rest for some hours? Why the heck not? Sometimes I want to get my food-based resting bonuses without having to get to the world map.
