With her not making the cut as a full fledged companion in the base game - what are the chances of her being upgraded from hireling to companion status again as part of the expansion? Would be a shame to let the groundwork already laid out for the character go to waste, innit?

 

Same for the sea monster hunting and fishing stretch goal.

"Olá.

If we don’t hit the stretch goal by 5pm PDT today, she will be a sidekick in Deadfire.  It would be possible for her (or Rekke, etc.) to become a companion in an expansion, but not in the core game.  The new features we’re adding for companions increase the amount of work we need to do per companion by about 50%.  We’re fully scheduled for companion writing through the rest of the project just with the core 7."

There is definitely an expansion. You can buy it as an add on already.

Whoot?! How did I missed that? They put it in high reward but never talked about it at Q&A/updates? :blink:

It's the season pass for dlc. I reckon we'll see something like WM and perhaps other things as well.

 

Xoti > Ydwin anyways.

Poor Ydwin, never hated a character so much before knowing anything about them.

 

Yep.

God, just leave them out of the main game and introduce them completely in the expansion... This is a mess.

ydwin will die horribly via a scripted event during first melee combat.  goth-girl's skirt will become entangled on an oxcart or rose bush or whatever as she attempts to enter the fray, causing her to lose balance and stumble to her knees.  recent rains/snows will have resulted in the ground being muddy, and when she final gets back to her feet, and readjusts her glasses, her spectacles will be smeared with all manner o' dampness and dirt.  instead o' removing her predictable fouled glasses as she shoulda' done in the first place, ydwin will stumble forward, functional blinded by folly, to be moments later speared through the liver by a xaurip juvenile wielding a fire-sharpened stick and a dragon-sized attitude. thus will end the story o' ydwin. 

 

fade  to black.

 

everybody cries.

No it's not. She'll be in the main game as a sidekick.

Sidekicks aren't companions and don't eat into their writing resources. They are more like glorified mercenaries.

Right, we all read the updates. The problem comes later when, assuming she becomes a companion in the update, Ydwin suddenly develops a lot more depth and interaction. To handle that, they would need to give her a reason why she changed from taciturn to fully interactive.

Well, at least with Rekke he speaks a different languages. He's probably the one I'm most looking forward to becoming a full companion eventually. So he'll have that period where he is picking up the language.

Well... He was used as an example, so... yeah, nice idea!

So, uh... who is Ydwin and why do people want her as a full companion so badly? This is greatly confusing to me.

Currently a sidekick, a corpse-obsessed female animancer crime observer. Eoras answer to Bones.

Because all the kids think that "deeper companion relationships" = Japanese dating sim and therefore assume that she will be their waifu. That is the only reason. Edited by Achilles

Because she kind of looks like an anime character I guess?

 

As for who, she's one of the 'sidekick' companions (which exists as a way to get around the slightly smaller party size), I'll try to find the Fig update that mentions her.

And yeah, she's Eoras answer to the coroners and investigators in crime dramas, and RL ones.
