For the next game, I think that the known characters of our group should be divided into two groups: Those who accompany you to the battle in your travels, and those who stay at your base, and give you advice.

 

  • Among those who accompany you, you should see Maia, Pallegina and Durance. (Apart from the new colleagues you meet during the new adventure.)
  • And among those who are at your base and talk to them from time to time, I would put Aloth, Eder, Fassina, Ydwin, Kana and Hiravias. (Oh, and also our dear Vela)

What is your opinion?

 

 

First of all, it greatly depends on where a PoE3 was taking place.  Obviously, if it took place in the Deadfire (unlikely), you could see pretty much the same cast of characters.  OTOH, if a PoE3 took place elsewhere, you might end up with very few or none of the familiar faces.

 

Frankly, I think that having Eder back seems fairly likely, no matter what.  And since the voice actor for Aloth is the same guy who does Eder, it wouold seem that the chances of Aloth being around would also be pretty good.

 

As for the other companions, unless a companion actually travels with the Watcher from the Deadfire to wherever, it will always require a real story-telling stretch to get that companion over to the new location.  Just look at PoE2.  Eder is there because he travelled with the Watcher.  Aloth is there because he just happened to be chasing a Leaden Key lead that led him to the Deadfire.  And Pallegina just happened to be ordered to the Deadfire by the Valian Trading Company.  But it seems to me that you can only reuse those reasons once, except for the travelling with the Watcher one.  Eder now has a bit of a history of tagging along, so it wouldn't be a stretch for him to tag along again.

 

 

Not long ago, there was a thread on what you'd like to see in a PoE3.  And I suggested that a possible interesting story might be for the Watcher to escort Rekke home to "Rekke-land".  Were such a story to occur, it would seem obvious that including Rekke as a companion would be justifiable simply because the Watcher was bringing him home, presumably on the Watcher's own ship.

 

Anyways, I'm with Boeroer on this.  I'd prefer to see plenty of fresh faces.  I might not mind seeing someone from PoE1 who didn't show up in PoE2.  But so much about which old faces, if any, could be seen would depend on where the PoE3 story took place.  Place the PoE3 story in the mysterious Rekke-land, and the only familiar faces you'd be likely to see would almost have to have come along with you.  Place the story in, oh, the Living Lands, and it becomes more possible for familiar faces to show up.

 

Pallegina would have to be, because with it we addressed several issues: antipathy towards the gods, the defense of the progress of animancy, hatred towards the godlike and the future of the republics.

With Maia, Kana, or one of her brothers, something similar, but with Rauatai. See if they can be inclined more towards war or the co-operation and their advance in ships, firearms and machinery.

 

 

 

Hacros, I don't see it that way at all.  I'm tired of all these "serious" issues, such as the gods, animancy, godlike related racism, and so on.

 

I would prefer a return to a lot more fun and adventure, and a lot less of the "serious" stuff.  For crying out loud, we get more than enough of this "serious" crap in real life.  Why do we have to wallow in it in our games as well?

I have fun dealing with serious issues in video games. If I wanted something super happy, I would play Viva Piñata. XD

 

In addition, the gods, animancy and racism are the central "pillar" of history.

I don't (have fun dealing with serious issues in computer games).  I want fun and adventure and exploration in my fantasy RPGs.  If I want serious … stuff …, I'd just watch the news or politically oriented youtube videos.

While I would welcome both Durance and Zahua with open arms, I think having new characters would be the best thing for a potential third game. Carrying Eder over would make sense and I wouldn't mind that, but none of the other Deadfire companions were interesting enough to bring back. I'm also of the opinion that none of the sidekicks were particularly captivating, and so I have no real interest to see them return - as fully fleshed-out companions, or otherwise.

I'd be fine with a couple members of the Pillars 1 crew returning for a third installment since that's an enjoyable trope. Hiravias would be especially welcome as an Autumn Stelgar Druid multiclassed with Fighter or Rogue.

Rekke is definitely coming back if there is a pillars 3 coming.  If you take him to Ukaizo, he will ask to stay with you.  There also a bunch of hints near the end of the game and in the last DLC that Yezuha will play a big role in the coming years.

If there will be poe3 I'd prefer seeing more fresh faces. I'll welcome the return of Eder (and probably Aloth as they share the same VA anyway) but for others...well, I want to see characters with backgrounds and views different from already existing ones.

It depends on where the potential next game would take place though, I wouldn't mind having Zahua back in Ixamtl Plains etc.

 

I'm not really a fan of the idea of companions in base. It would feel like lost potentials for me, just the way the sidekicks do. I will constantly wonder how those companions would react if I could actually take them out for the journey. A few references or even side quests for companions in 1 and 2 would be nice though.

As far as companions I'd actually like back:

 

Eder
Maia or Kana, both seem unlikely. 
Konstantin

Ydwin 

 

Everyone else would be met with halting tolerance, with Rekke or Mirke being on the high end and Tekehu or Grieving mother being on the low.

My must-have companions would be Aloth (especially if he is a relationship with the watcher, plus his story still has a long, long way to go ... also he's my favourite companion from both POE games), Rekke (his conversation in Ukaizo points to Yezuhan civilization being potential villains in the next game, so he definitely needs to be a main character in the next instalment), Tayn (just because he would have so much fun winding up the other companions, and his character has a lot of potential) and Ydwin (her story seems unfinished, plus she takes over Pallegina's pro-animancy stance).

 

As cameos in the stronghold, I would have Eder with Bearn, and Fassina with Konstantin because I really want to see how their relationships develop. I would like Vela to have more of a role in the stronghold, since it would be her home. Vatnir could possibly have a role in the stronghold as well, as it would be great to see him turn his life around, plus I think there could be more Rymrgand action in the next installment?

 

Personally, I think Pallegina, Tekehu, Serafen, Xoti & Maia's stories have come to an end, and would like to see them replaced with new characters for PO3.

these points are all fair. ydwin taking over from pallegina pretty smart. rekkes almost a given if yezuhas a destination. TAYNE being a party member might be pushing it, but id like to see more of the archmages. i enjoy their antics.

 

wed better get a third opportunity to kill concelhaut and keep his skull.

 

i was really surprised at how much i liked having vatnir around. he, rekke and ydwin are all adrift, one way or another, and its easy to imagine them following the watcher for lack of anything else to do.

 

i like the idea of the watcher being a place where the misfits of eora can find purpose and respite.

Aloth's story was pretty much over the moment he burned Thaos' robes or took his place. His quest in Deadfire was pretty much meaningless and contributed nothing to the story. Also, it seems like he learned nothing from the previous game, which is unfortunate because he was one of my favorites. 

 

The only two characters that should've returned in Deadfire are Eder and Durance. Durance's story wasn't finished and it would've been cool seeing him interact with Eothas and Waidwen. I wanted to see him gloat about blowing up Eothas right to his face  :verymad:

 

IMO, for POE3 It should be Eder, Rekke and Xoti.

Well, considering how some companions changed in the years between the two games, it might be interesting seeing what happens to Xoti.

Please, not Aloth again!

 

I would like Eder (of course), Ydwin, Vatnir, Rekke or Fassina. Maybe Kana or Hiravias from the first game?

I want to see a very stereotypical dwarven male, who would probably be a fighter or priest or fighter/priest.  IMO, he ought to be a bit surly, but not so much so that he comes off as evil or nasty.  But on top of that, a dwarven male companion would need a voice that really, REALLY sounded deep and rough, sort of like John Rhys Davies, though not necessarily with the Scottish accent.

 

For a new godlike, I'd prefer to see either a Fire GL or maybe a Moon GL.  I get a little tired of having GLs companions that are not player playable.  I'd kind of like a Fire GL to be of a class or multiclass where fire synced up well with  the Fire GL subrace, maybe a paladin or wizard, or possibly a monk.  As for a Moon GL, maybe a priest or a Kind Wayfarer or Shieldbearer paladin.

 

As for a pale elven female, I'd just keep Ydwin around and promote her to companion status.  She's interesting.

It seems like a given that if POE3 is set in Yezuha (aka "Rekke-land"), then Rekke will be coming along, since it seems to me that the preface to such a story would probably be the Watcher taking Rekke home.

Probably too much to ask for but I'd like the option to choose between at least 2 from each class, so you don't always have to run with a similar group of people. Plus with all the sacrificing and killing of party members in PoEI and PoEII you could end up with very few options. I think PoEIII will be a fast forward into the future with a new "watcher" and allies. Or maybe not even a watcher, but something else.

I hope there is no romance-able companion in poe 3 or maybe try not to make most single character is playersexual because its lazy writing. And also they should make female companion more beauty.
