Bionick Posted March 16, 2018 Share Posted March 16, 2018 I don’t mean role playing as a schizophrenic character (though if you do, that is neat). I mean roleplay interactions and conversations in your own head. I feel like most people who make full custom parties do so to fine tune their party synergy. I’m the opposite. I often make decidedly unoptimized compositions just for role playing reasons, such as my 6 bard troupe in Icewind Dale or my werewolf pack in Baldur’s Gate 2. I even make full custom parties in games that require jumping through hoops to do so, such as Dragon’s Dogma or Divinity: OS2. I never miss having any NPCs, because I really like making characters, including imaging their backstories, relationships, and even party banter. So, for example, I have one party planned for Deadfire which will be 5 Pale Elf Ciphers from the White that Wends and all with the mystic background. The Watcher will be an Oracle (Cipher + Lifegiver Druid) and the rest will be her order of psychically linked bodyguard disciples. None will have any voices for barks, as they only talk to each other in their minds. My favorite character in PoE1 was an explorer and disillusioned former conquistador and what remained of his crew of pirate/raiders. His backstory fits the setting of Deadfire really well, so I am excited about bringing them back (even though I had to decide which of them was getting the axe due to the smaller party limit). So does anybody else do anything similar, or am I just as weird as I suspect? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
