Hello World and Happy 2013! Looks like we all survived (hopefully) the Mayan Apocalypse. That was a close one. Woooohooo!

OMG, it was really close this time. I'm so happy we all made it! :D

 

Slightly disappointed in the lack of mechanics details from this update, but I'll get over it. Thanks for the update nonetheless and hope those who are sick get well soon.

Maybe they are actually busy with creating real RPG mechanics instead of dumbing many mechanics down to retard level.... I hope so at least.

Pillars of Eternity Josh Sawyer's Quest: The Quest for Quests - an isometric fantasy stealth RPG with optional combat and no pesky XP rewards for combat, skill usage or exploration.


PoE is supposed to be a spiritual successor to Baldur's GateJosh Sawyer doesn't like the Baldur's Gate series (more) - PoE is supposed to reward us for our achievements

"Josh Sawyer created an RPG where always avoiding combat and never picking locks makes you a powerful warrior and a master lockpicker." -Helm, very critcal and super awesome RPG fan


"I like XP for things other than just objectives. When there is no rewards for combat or other activities, I think it lessens the reward for being successful at them." -Feargus Urquhart, OE CEO


"Didn’t like the fact that I don’t get XP for combat [...] the lack of rewards for killing creatures [in PoE] makes me want to avoid combat (the core activity of the game)" -George Ziets, Game Dev.

People get colds in SoCal, and no amount of Wisconsin cheese can protect them? Then we are all doomed.

 

Hope you all enjoyed your holidays!

Well, I hope Obsidian people had themselves happy holidays with multiple parties (for those who fancy such events).

 

Now, brew yourself some potions of cure I guess :)

I think if there's a next Obsidian Kickstarter, one of the tier rewards should be 4 tins full of those cookies.

Then shouldn't it be 'Grammar Nazi'? As that's a compound noun, it being prefaced by the indefinite article 'a'. :disguise:

 

 

'Grammar Nazi' is a noun phrase in post Chomsky terminology. It consists of a classifying modifier 'grammar' and the head noun 'Nazi'. Usually only the head noun would be capitalised, but it varies.

So will that get us Mega Dungeon Level 16? :D

Hmm... three levels plus an additional level for every 2500 backers. There were 73,986+5,698=79,684. Unless I am mistaken, that means 3+(79,684/2,500) = 34 levels. Holy crud, that can't be right.

Oh yeah... it's from 50,000. In that case: 3+((79,684-50,000)/2,500 = 14 levels, which is one more than is shown in the illustration. :cat:

It's good to know that all their hard work this week will be so... fulfilling. 8)


Should we not start with some Ipelagos, or at least some Greater Ipelagos, before tackling a named Arch Ipelago? 6_u

I'd rather have 15 levels at Mega Dungeon Budget+Time+Effort/15 than Mega Dungeon Budget+Time+Effort/16 thanks.

4.3 million before fees and failed charges is not too shabby. I'm glad I was able to be part of this momentous movement. Also, get well soon Josh Sawyer.

4.3 million before fees but after failed charges. :)

First post on the forums, and let me start by saying this project is helping to restore my faith in PC gaming, and gaming in general. I have been pinning for a game like this for, oh I dunno, ten years perhaps.

 

I only found out about PE by angrily typing "when will they make another RPG like the good old infinity engine ones" into Google after abandoning Skyrim about 3/4 of the way through. And how glad I am to have found this Kickstarter project.

 

Hats off to this project for raising such a respectable sum to make the game - a true testiment to the continued existence of good gaming taste that I feel has been supressed for far too long by big money mentality. I almost shed a tear when I first watched that video on the homescreen. Hooray for 2013 and RPG gaming!

Company of Heroes 2 is out in May, I think. Therefore I will be happy until PE is released.
