It took eleven days, but the Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous Kickstarter campaign has finally hit the Oread & Spanish localization stretch goal. As you might recall, the next stretch goal at $1,500,000 is about ~romance~. Specifically, it will add two more companion romances to the game. Both companions haven't been mentioned until now, so at the very least the update is good for that.
The more adventures you experience with your companions, the stronger your bonds become. Some will become your close friends, some will merely cease to be your enemies, and others will straight fall head-over-heels in love with you. Every companion romance is a story that will unfold alongside the main plot.
We’re working to make characters more diverse, and that includes their personalities as well as their backstories. This will heavily influence their routes to romance: you may need to teach your romantic interest what love is, you may pursue someone who wants to be close but who is afraid of getting in too deep, or your chosen paramour may just want to have some fun… And that’s not the end of the list. With your support, we are ready to add two more romance options.
And now for the creative part. If you think that our team just came up with the various romance options themselves, you’re vastly underestimating the magic of game-making! The truth is that we Owlcats simply summoned all the Commander’s companions to the studio and asked them if they were open to a relationship.
[...] Ahem… clearly, after that we needed to conduct further research. And after a while we found out that four of our companions are ready to let romance into their lives, and two more need your encouraging (and our working time) to reveal their hearts’ desires:
Camellia—a half-elf raised in a wealthy but strict household. She has the manners of a lady, the powers of a shaman, and enjoys her newly obtained freedom in the Commander’s company.
Daeran—a young Mendevian noble and an aasimar. Extremely handsome and filthy rich, he loves to scandalize noble society with extravagant parties and wanton behaviour. Does he even have a heart, one might wonder? You can find out for yourself!
P. S. And don’t forget about Queen Galfrey, whose heart is still not taken. The Queen’s Watch still needs more faithful crusaders who are ready to achieve our social goals to win their queen’s heart.
