Guidebook v1; in my hands right now!

Recommended Posts

  I received the Pillars of Eternity Guidebook Volume 1 in the mail today! This thing is certainly sweet enough to make the next two weeks easier :) If there is any interest in a sneak peek of sorts, let me know and I'll try to get some pictures up. I might be busy drooling over this super awesome piece of lore for awhile, though!

Ordered straight from Dark Horse, 1 day delivery :) Thought it wouldn't arrive until after the 26th, being wrong is cool.

Yeah, surprised they're not holding those until release date. I wonder if Obsidian is aware of this.

 

Guess they are now.

Dude how much did you pay on shipping?  They wanted a 10 spot from me for 4 days.

Heh, $15 for the book, $32 for shipping. Just got a bonus at work, thought "What the hell?"

That's actually quite exciting, lam. Please, however, use spoiler tags when posting pages of the hint book. Posting pics of the hint book here without spoiler tags will get it moved out of this forum. ...But I do think it's cool you received the hint book already! Cool times!

No hints in the book, all lore all the time. It's like a history book with extended footnotes on creatures, gods, locations, etc. Absolutely no spoilers as far as story and characters in present (game world) time.

 

Won't be home from work until 10pm EST, 15 hours from now,but I'll get some pics up (with spoiler tags just in case) later this evening.

Man I wish I had it.  By the time I get it from Amazon I will already be playing the game.

Just an FYI for everyone, we're fine with people posting a handful of pictures or scans as preview or commentary. That is fair use and you're completely allowed to do that. But don't post scans or pictures of the entire book. That would be copyright infringement and we'd be forced to take it down. Carry on. :)

sounds cool. When I saw the preview of the Almanac content I was actually way more impressed than I expected to be. So I'm sure yours is even as nice or better. It would be kind of cool if there are easter eggs in there to assist in quest progression if the book has like written notes in it for example.

Still at work, but I can tell you that the content and design of this book is amazing. It's dense with information on Eora and local history, but it's put together like an encyclopedia-meets-history book fashion. There's enough unique art to be interesting, but the vast majority is lore heavy.

 

I'll put 3 or 4 pages up in about 4 hours or so. It should peek enough interest to spawn more sales from those with an itch :)

Interested in seeing this, but the digital version is in all tiers $35 and above I believe. Sadly, I just don't have room to collect physical books anymore.

Impressive. It would make me want to order a copy if I didn't already pledge for it.
