    yeah, that could work, I guess. It'd be pretty fitting. though explaining why he was no longer a level 40 would be lame.

    tbh, I'm so tired of him that I never take him with me any more on replays though. including him would be an eye roller for me.

    It was me. And Adam Lee is the same "genius" from the interview posted here. TL;DR: The guy has absolutely no fucking idea about Forgotten Realms lore, and in said interview is clearly reading off notes someone else made - I assume someone else, since they are full of errors.

    I tend to think that Minsc is not the "real" one due to the simple fact that he's young: his epilogue clearly states that he continued adventuring for many years, so obviously he must've gotten old/middle aged. His "recreated" self is young again, and the only times he recalls someone/something from his past is when either:
    A. He directly meets said person (Coran).
    B. Is VERY similar to said person (one of his companions is an elven wild mage with white hair, whom he mistakes for Neera).

    Other than that, it's like the past didn't exist for him. No stories, no anecdotes, no mentions of past glorious asskickings - nothing.

    Not "treating": like it or not, it is canon. This isn't some Star Wars situation, where a different company took over the entire franchise: WotC considers the Enhanced Edition characters as canon, and has inserted their mentions in other media.

    Well, I guess my jokes concerning Neera and Rasaad are turning out to be more relevant than I thought.

    Ok, I thnk I understand a bit more abot what the guy was saying/misinterpreting.

    oh wow, I thought you were joking.
    I guess I should have expected the setting that kept boring characters like Drizzt and Elminster around for decades would want to bring back BG's number one cliche.

    I wasn't even sure Neera was romancable. She's so annoying that I usually just do my best to ignore her and move on.

    Ironically, her romance is the only one that doesn't really have a "happy ending".

    I guess it's icing on the cake for the fact that out of all the characters, not only is Aerie the only one you can impregnate, but they even go so far as to have her give birth in game.

    The most annoying character romances. Tbh, all of them suck.

    As someone that has not played 5th ed Tabletop, how well would it translate to a Turn based CRPG?
    I assume this is what we will be getting by the way, I see no reason why a studio would come in off the back of two successful TB rpgs and make some kind of NWN shit show.

    It's the most suitable to a videogame while keeping the D&D formula intact D&D has ever been.

    The only mechanic which would cause any grief to convert would be the "reaction". It would be simple enough to work into turn-based, but very difficult to translate into RTwP. Reactions are very important in 5E.
