Honestly while these are not Opinions I'd endorse, It doesnt seem to me, That this should have blown up as it has. I'm seriously afraid of what might happen/ Will the situation repeat another time with less controversial remarks because of the slippery slope of Appeasment ?
Will it impact the story ? because if this company encouraged the writer to resign because of this, It could signal that Obsidian will shy away from the deep writing and avoid Philosophical questions and other things that could be considered remotely controversial, and That could make it significantly harder to create Great Game like the KOTOR 2.
I dont even know If Raedric Hold would make it into the game. If PoE 1 were made today,
The Atmosphere certainly changed with certain segment of population believing that Art should not be sorely for Art but for the message and for the influence of said message to "guide" the society.
I think there could be Worthwhile discusion of both this case,what it might signal and in general the direction obsidian might be taking in terms of story, storytelling and ultimately Narrative.
