Pillars of Eternity II Q&A Stream #5

With the Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire crowdfunding campaign silently continuing for another month and a half, it looks like Josh Sawyer and the team have decided to keep on doing Q&A Twitch streams on a regular basis. The special guest on this Wednesday's stream was lead artist Kaz Aruga. There were a number of interesting art design-related questions, but the most noteworthy part of the stream was the first reveal of details on Deadfire's stealth and pickpocketing mechanics. The game's stealth system is going to be much more elaborate than its predecessor's, with vision cones and a hearing radius. The Commandos series appears to be an inspiration. You can read about that in Fereed's transcript on Reddit if you don't want to watch the stream:
Obsidian released a brief Fig update on Tuesday announcing that the Deadfire campaign was at around $4,58M of funding. They'll be transferring all of the Fig pledge data to their backer portal next week, at which point it will be possible to upgrade those pledges, so maybe it won't take long to reach the next stretch goal after that. In the meantime though, our own fundraiser is in its last two days. Can we reach $2,750?
