The teaser image depicts a smoking pipe and a stalk of wheat. Edér has a stalk of wheat hanging from his mouth, and he's fond of smoking with a pipe, so I guess that implies he would be a returning (or even THE central) character of the sequel.

The terror of the unforeseen is what the science of history hides, turning a disaster into an epic.”

Eder, Aloth and Pallegina are returning.

IIRC Josh posted sketches of all three characters on Twitter/Instagram. New sketches never before seen, specifically, which would suggest new art being done for a new game.

It must be set in the Deadfire archipelago then. Woot! :)

 

And I have this CRPG dream of mine; except for some Dragonlance CRPG from the 90s (nr 3?), I've never went beneath the waves in any SP CRPG campaign to speak of, only on NWN1 servers.

So, if PoE2 happens to include some aquatic exploration (go, sahuagins, sorta) and water breathing abilities, it would be frigging awesome. And it should be teeming with adventure. I don't want Skyrim's almost empty lake and sea beds, heh.

I was so happy when I saw that teaser screen. Eder doesn't get much love from PoE fans but he is by far my most favored companion and I always have him in my parties. Also like Aloth (and Sagani) quite a bit but not a big fan of Pallegina (and Durance). So all in all a good deal for me. :)

 

I suppose which companions return depends on whether their writers are still with Obs.

That reminds me Vampire Bloodlines, where we could choose to just sunk sarcophagus in the sea or keep it the endless storehouse Camaralia way. That was good game.

If OE ever wonder what game do... Vampire Masquarade with Bloodlines gameplay GTA with stealth and Vampires. Strong pick.

There goes hunting radigators by the bayou. :(

 

The Leaden Key quote yesterday should have done serious damage to remaining Fallout speculation.

 

That, and the assortment of characters from fantasy languages that seem to spell out "Deadfire"  ;)

Hm, a pirate? From Rauatai or Deadfire. Maybe aumaua? Not Maneha I think.

Pirate? Pirate hunter in any case, he's talking about "bringing order" and does not enjoy savagery. I would say an aumaua, maybe outsider (not from Deadfire)? Since he talks about "bringing".
