thanks aarik.

 

ok, this is gonna sound sarcastic, and it kinda is, but can anybody think o' a reason we would want less than the maximum o' eight npcs?

 

am gonna make suggestion o' five o' the eight being a pirate crew.

 

also, am submitting earlier suggestions, but, y'know, on an island instead o' a ship.

Great news! Because you guys are so amazing, we're going to do the island for the community! No need to back a tier or anything. You guys have supported us through out these years and we wanted to give back. The team will have full control of the Black Isle but are open to suggestions. Keep in mind that this may be a small sized island, so there wouldn't be a bustling town or anything to that scale. It'll have 4-8 NPCs max.

 

Nice! Thank you. :)

 

I read that the company name was based on Black Isle, Scotland. Perhaps then it could have an old abandoned castle?

Awesome news. Offer still stands to make a small contribution financially if needed.

Hey Guys,

However, if you want to incorporate something with the island, such as the NPC tier, or the Pirate Crew, that is definitely something we can work with you guys on. For example, you could encounter the Black Isle Bastards on the way to the Black Isle, or they can be chilling on the island, within reason.

Perhaps the island could contain nods to various BI games? Some examples:

 

  • Fallout: Adra powered armor? The GECK (one time consumable which summons a bunch of plant monsters)? A two-headed animal? The Maltese Falcon bar (recall the very last line in FO2 credits)?
  • Torment: An incarnation of Ravel Puzzlewell? The Bronze Sphere? Divine letters B and I? 
  • Baldur's Gate: Boo? A hidden treasure chest with Golden Pantaloons? An NPC who really wants to romance the Watcher (but all options given are "no")?  :p

Pretty sure Black Isle/Obs didn't work on Baldurs gate :) ice wind dale would be cool though. Perhaps a soul bound weapon referencing Cera Sumat... out of every rpg game the quest for the blade was the by far the most epic and memorable. The story still gives me shivers.

"6 now silenced."Awesome stuff.

Hmmm... I backed the Item Creation tier. I may just see about making it relevant to and seeing about placing it on this island if they allow me to. Thanks Aarik!

 

If anyone backed a pirate crew, or whatever else is relevant and wants to tie it to the island. Let me know and perhaps a collaboration is in order. If I had the money available to back the pirate crew I probably would, but I won't by the time the campaign ends unfortunately.

Isla Nero in italian

Ile Noir in french

 

Still Black Isle. And since the characters talk english with fictive in game lingo highlights... its easy to integrate

 

 

 

 

I'm actually having trouble seeing how a "Black Isle" couldn't fit in somehow. It's about as basic a name as possible, a color describing a geographical feature.

Really? Wouldn't you think the names would depend on the dominant culture in the islands. For example, if this were a French archipelago I would expect l'Île Noire rather than Black Island.

And do you think we or the developers would let that happen?

 

Let's say just for arguments sake, that all the names of the islands were French indeed. Do you really think we or the developers would then name one island the "Black Isle"?

 

If you really fear that, then I would like to assure you that I would talk to the developers how to adjust the name "Black Isle" to best fit in the game world of Deadfire.

Holy ****. That's awesome! Thanks so much!

 

Guess I'm putting my money towards the Bastard crew instead!  :yes:

Fluffle is currently collecting funds for the Black Isle Bastards pirate crew + ship (independently from the forum badge). If we reach 5000$ we can place it on the Black Isle. I'm sure your item can be merged with all this stuff. Even if the pirate crew won't be a success I'm pretty sure OBS can put your item on the Black Isle.

I will soon add a PayPal Donation offer where we collect the money to fund raise our pirate crew for the Black Isle.

 

If you'd like to learn more about the pirate crew, check out this thread:

Great. Can't wait to throw some money at you. Paypal will keep some of the money you receive, right? As far as I know they will get 1.9% or 95$ from that 5000$.

So actually we will have to collect 5097$ in order to pledge 5000$. Maybe this is not the case though? It's only my experience with Paypal when selling stuff on eBay and getting paid via Paypal.
