Doubt: Is There Romance Among NPCs? Or only with the players?

Only played to level 10, but Maia has a sexy voice and so far I like her non-nonsense attitude. Might go for her.

 

There is some kind of romance between companions as far as I've heard. Or they share a bed *wink wink* at the least.

Xoti if my Watcher is of a religious bent; none otherwise. (Head canon says Mirke can be romanced, though.)

Won’t play it out myself but Aloth’s is the only one to feel like a romance and not just a fling since he actually stays with the watcher afterwards.

Comment, but vote! Please. ^^

They spoke in Aloth but he is without a vote, of xoti, but she is without a vote. etc.

Do you consider Aloth as something closer to a good novel, to continuity? (Go to the end of the game?)

 

 

Xoti if my Watcher is of a religious bent; none otherwise. (Head canon says Mirke can be romanced, though.)

 

Can NPC 'Mirke' have romance? Assurance?

Does it say that inside the RP, or do I really need to check the "Religion" option on my character? I could explain better, I did not quite understand that.

You must have a flirtation between fellows, I hope, because it is nice to see this kind of development.
How did you like Maia as Romance? It was good?

Doubt: Is There Romance Among NPCs? Or only with the players?

There is a possible:
- romance between Xoti and Maia.
- fling between Xoti and Eder, that ends with friendship, if I'm not mistaken.

Btw, do you use the word [Doubt] in place of the [Question]?
 

What's your Favorite Romance character?

In Deadfire? Hmm, the answer is closer to: none of the options spark me.

I've tried a romance with Maia, but it does not feel satisfying, because.. hmm, how to better elaborate..:
- Maia almost puts it like: dance around Ishiza and I'm yours
- there is no emotional intimacy
- and in the end, it looked like you are just two occasional f*** buddies

Xoti's romance is not really appealing either. Because:
- she's a bit over religious; yeah, yeah, she's a priestess, and there are living gods, but still: use your calm and common sense
- she's kinda mad about soul collecting
- she's passionate and enthusiastic which is nice) but something in her character wasn't enough. Think of Leliana, Triss, Yennefer. Now that's romance material.
- in the end, it's some kind of unsatisfying long distance relationship

"Btw, do you use the word [Doubt] in place of the [Question]?"
I use Translator.

About "Leliana, Triss, Yennefer" ...

  • Can you have Romance with the player?
  • Are they Companions? Boat Helpers? or ...
  • How does this novel work?

Can you romance multiple companions at the same time?

Is Llendreth a companion, ship's helper or ...?
Is it romanceable?
I did not understand the condition for this to happen?

Omg no one is voting. U.U "

Oh, it explains that unusual communication style)

They are not from Deadfire.

Leliana - is a companion in Dragon Age: Origins; and a spymaster in Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Triss and Yennefer - are from Witcher series.

If you don't know them... well, you have a few good RPGs to play)
 

Can you romance multiple companions at the same time?

At the same time - no.
But as far as I know, you can start romance with one companion, change your mind, and start romance with another.
Unless you are already at Ukaizo I presume.
 

Omg no one is voting. U.U "

Well... I don't vote because the options don't suit me.
For example, I'm not in doubt. But I can't vote 50% none, 30% xoti, 20% maia, right? :)

And I can't vote for male options either, cose am not interested due to being straight. At the same time can't vote "none", because it would mean that I find their romances unsatisfying, but I don't know if they are, or if they are not.
 

Llendreth. Hot, sweaty, fuzzy, short.

Read it as Llengrath first time :)

Perhaps the very first Llengrath was an orlan as well)

Was extremely disappointed with both Xoti and Maia so a clear none for me.

Which is sad because I realize all the work that probably went into the relationship system but dit not pay off...

From what I read of the commentaries, none of them came close to the novels of Baldur's Gate 2.

In PoE2 the Romances give a certain extra in the story, but it does not have a deeper development and / or it affects the history of some way.

But the iterations are of romance as only iterations between the companions and with you, are at least fun and guarantee a good fun? (Laughter and the like ...)

 

Is there any prospect for some upgrade or expansion than an extra romance? What better or add things in this sense?

Maya is the one and unique adequate character in this bunch of freaks 8)

 

Some days i miss Durance... If that one son of a **** were in Deadfire, i'd definetely wanted him to romance with Vatnir - it could be most epic lovestory in PRG's ever! :wub:

I've played the game only once and my Watcher's romance was with Modwyr. :shrugz:

 

For my next pts the characters that align better with my planned Watchers will be Xoti and Maia.

I haven't done it yet. I like her personality (until now), and might try to romance her.

 

But computer game romances are pretty shallow, my opinion. They can be fun, but I don't get emotionally invested in them ;-)

She does Jaheira's romance at Baldur's Gate 2 and tells me if she's still going to think so ^^
Romance worked from the 1st, in a way. lol
Just an example.

Say what you want, but I think Tekēhu romance is very well written and very faithful to character. Aloth (with all my love to character from PoE1) has a secondary role in PoE2, with much less impact and significance. His romance (without mod, which make it playable) feels  even less significant (not to mention delayed as much as possible) which is a shame. Non of the romance in game is the central plot piece, but Tekēhu is well developed and felt true to the story.

What are the mods that enhance or add to romance?
Do you have the links?
Are worth?
