The Obsidian Order of Eternity wants YOU! part 4


Recommended Posts

Hi, guys. I'm new to the order. :yes: About the title - I really like spellcasters. So something like Archmage of the Obsidian Order or maybe Sorcerer Supreme of the Obsidian Order. :D

 

I think Archmage is available, but my list is from the last update 2 days ago (I only collect the official update lists into my database).

 

Hello, I upped my pledge, any available title would be nice, link to kickstarter profile http://www.kickstart...file/1349587068

 

You must choose your title. We already have a Vacillator. :grin:

Whether or not Dlux backs PE, Obsidian has to consider their design carefully and balance it to appeal to their intended audience. And to Dlux, I hope you will continue to follow the developments as they are announced. You might be surprised.

About Dlux ;( My two cents: Project Eternity is still being designed, too early to say what will happen or whether I will like it. We all backed it on faith, even Dlux.

 

I like dlux, but let him go if he doesn't want to back the game.

 

One person (or four, or forty) is not worth the community getting twisted in knots over, nor for Obsidian to twist their plans to make happy.

 

I seriously doubt that anyone, including any individual dev, is getting EXACTLY the game they want out of PE. Each person has individual likes and dislikes, tastes, opinions, foibles, experiences.... no one person will find the game PERFECT. Each individual will be able to nitpick things they would do differently.

 

If the majority of the Project Eternity game sounds like something that dlux can't support, that is dlux's right to not support it. Don't try and drag him back if he doesn't want the game Obsidian is designing.

 

You are backing Obsidian and their vision - not your nostalgia and your vision. If you don't want to support Obsidian in this endeavor because of one gameplay mechanic that you don't even have a real clue how it's going to actually pan out in the finished game... well, if that's your breaking point, stick to your guns I guess.

Guys relax, it's good to see that we are all sad for the most active and caretaking member of the "Order" to leave us, but it's nothing serious. Dlux won't get hurt, we don't get hurt, the OOoE isn't a serious union to be hurt.

The worst thing is, that the features that made dlux leave are still under

discussion as Feargus Urquhart said himself:

 

 

Obsidian Entertainment

Quick question - I heard something we did made dlux unhappy?

 

Obsidian Entertainment

@Adric The XP for kills thing is still an ongoing discussion here. Our goal is to

make this a game that is reminiscent of the IE games and in my mind that does

mean XP for kills. We just need to balance with other systems.

 

Obsidian Entertainment

@DeDawg I was on the fence about the Stamina / Health thing as well.

My thought on it right now is that it is worth implementing (not a ton of work)

and then we can see how it feels. If it doesn't feel good, then we will change or pull it.

No they should keep going. The only reason games didn't change in the last years much, is because of the "if it's not broken don't fix it". Which is a fallacy in this case at least, because we have been used to "It's a game, I slaughter millions to level up".

I agree to a certain extend, which is limited at this point:

 

To only bring in new features so you can say "We have something completely new", even

if those new features would be significantly worse.

 

At the same time, you cannot always stick to old features just for the sake

of nostalgia.

 

As always there needs to be some middle ground and evaluation.

 

The point is: The process of evaluation is still going on.

And I fear dlux has not realized this.

 

It is not about to make the game just like dlux wants it.

I rather would make it clear to him that this process of evaluation is going on

and that he, like everybody else,should participate.

I agree with this, as I said in another thread, it is very early, and lots of things are just ideas right now. I trust that without exterior machinations a quality, old school feel, extremely well written game will be produced.

 

Beyond that. Welcome to everyone! :D

At least dlux didn't go off at the first sign this wasn't a carbon copy of the IE games. And I'll tell you that I really thought about removing my pledge, when I read that level scaling - what ever the scale :getlost: of it- would be included. but implementation is more important than inclusion. So I trusted Josh's, or whoever would work on it, decision on this.

 

And there are middle points, but sometimes you have to try just that new thing, in order to see if it actually works.

No, you're fine. Go back to page 9 of this thread and you can read all about it.

 

It's not a big deal, just something that happened.

Ranger of the Obsidian Order.

I'm afraid, this title is already taken. Take a look at the list in the first post. Maybe adding an unique attribute could help.

 

Hello, I upped my pledge, any available title would be nice, link to kickstarter profile http://www.kickstart...file/1349587068

Sorry, please chose a unique title for yourself :)

 

I'd like to be "Psychotic Addendum to the Obsidian Order's Sanity".

 

I backed 78$ (50 Rewardtier, 20 Addon, 8 Order) and I even wrote - Obsidian Order in my Kickstarter name. Something I would normally never do because I am way to cool to associate myself with any groups so openly!!!11!1elevenelvenlookingdwarfs

 

But then Obsidian comes along, throws Project Eternity in my face and I am reduced to a drooling fanboi. These guys really should find a way to harness that kind of power! Oh wait, they alreaddy did... :D

OMG, we are lost! Save your children, PsychoWedge arrived! :dancing:

For the longest time I was sitting at an $80 pledge, but decided I wanted the collector's box and the expansion so I upped to $185 (140 + expansion + shipping). Then I realized that it would only need to be $180 incl. shipping so I said what the hell and made my pledge $188 so I can join the Order. :) May I become Undead Commander of the Obsidian Order?
