    If you are, PM me for a secret mission (to visit Larian and see stuff about their new game)!

    If anyone does this: ask about the cheese merchant. Stress the importance of including him in DOS 2, as he is by far the most memorable character of the first game.

    Is there a secret meeting going on? Larian doesn't seem to keep me updated on these things.

    Too short a notice, i do hope we find someone.

    I assume they have some event thing going on, ergo good opportunity for us to be present (among others) as well?
    Or is it like, secret secret? ^^

    Either way, a few questions:

    - Anything they can tell us about the undisclosed games currently in development?
    - What does Swen think about a third/first person RPG? And could he expand on it, lol
    - Whom was it that got sick/ill/died and how much did it affect the lore/story aspect of the game? (reminding here that after this they had to look for a new writer)
    - Are there any plans for a new Kickstarter?
    - Would that be a more general stance, as in 'we plan to use KS period', or more of a game-to-game kind of decision?
    - If the above, any comments about the future and Larian's relation with publishers?
    - Has Swen's approach to game difficulty/work vs gain changed since D:OS 1? If so, how? If not, why, considering how easy it was?
    - Any specific comment on locked quests, hand holding, question marks, linear approach, etc, as found in Dragon Knight Saga (basically the Divinity 2 EE) and D:OS 1 EE?
    - Find a polite way to ask him if he's gonna stuff more elves and dragons and dwarves up our collective asses, or if he's willing to try other settings or themes, ie say science fiction. If considering it/already on to it, which would they be and why?

    Just to be clear, this is in Oudenaarde, near Gent, Belgium, right?

    If so, fucking hell man, when you asked it was already "tomorrow" for anyone nearby. Cutting it a little short, aren't you? Is this Swen suddenly throwing something together with duct tape and enthusiasm in the last minute, informing the press late as hell, or is it just you being slow?

    The Jew was asking in shoutbox a few days ago. I said I was willing to fly in on my own expense if I'd get to spend the night with Swen. No response. So rude! Sad!

    We learned about this on Tuesday. I asked people on Shoutbox who on the Codex is from Belgium or the area. They gave me the idea of sending Trash who is from the Netherlands, which I passed on to Crooked Bee, and that's the last I heard of this.

    DarkUnderlord FFS do I have to chase every issue around here?

    Yeah, DU only posted this today / posted this only today because we tried contacting ppl but failed.

    But really, three days is just not enough for something like this, unless we had someone directly in the area - so maybe Larian counted on that. Or maybe they just forgot to invite us initially and only remembered about us three days ago. :P

    If we had a couple of weeks to arrange this, we could actually send someone to Gent, maybe even give them a bit of money to cover their costs in addition to whatever Larian might've covered. But I hope there will be another opportunity like this further down the line.

    Are they so desperate for someone to beta test DOS2 that they are setting up a trap?

    Man, that's too bad. My guess would be some kind of game master mode demo/event.
