    Talking about managing scope, lets new vegas, pillars 1 go out of control in term of scope, end up half assing some content / feature.

    and yet both are better than dumpsterfire, which actually did manage its scope.

    Deadfire was delayed once and got additional funding from Obsidian (but not from the publisher like it ended up happening with PoE, which was also delayed twice).

    New Vegas being what it was led to scope-controlled New Obsidian. It "worked" for a time with Dungeon Siege and South Park, but the owners messed up with the stretch goals for Eternity.

    I wonder why Josh has so many gray hairs. Is it New Vegas or Pillars of Eternity did that to him?

    He's too young to have them in that quantity.

    Still none of them should have grey hairs that fucking early! They are looking like young oldmen. And I can slowly start using instead of they, we. Our modern stress is NOTHING compared to what our ancestors had to endure yet they didn't see a single gray until their forties at earliest!

    Either we worry WAY TOO FUCKING MUCH and should just look at life as RPG game, don't take anything too personal, smoke weed little bit and mucho chill every day. Also look at everything as a challenge and work everyday on raising your stats. And just chill, though for some even chill is too much stress...

    It's either that or something way more sinister and connected with food, water and other stuff. I really hope it's that we're just too sheltered and weak and need to borrow from our grandparents or simply grow a spine! In other words balance our fears with reality, and in it most of them are overblown or just funny.

    LET'S JUST PLAY CHILL & BE RPG :cool:

    Sawyer is 42 IIRC. Also stress is stress, first word problems' stress prolly has the same effects of whatever age's stress. People killed themselves cos of stress since the dawn of time, I was there. True story.

    I have one friend in his early 30s who has some gray hairs, but also a father of the worst kind. Once drunk, when they refused to let him in in that state, he emptied a whole pistol magazine into the main door.

    That's just one episode, so I have no questions about why he has them so early.

    I don't know anyone in their 40s (JES just turned 43 this week, btw) that doesn't have grey hairs. And a fair number of men are losing their hair or seriously thinning by then too.

    I mainly agree with you mate. I disagree that our ancestors were more stressed,they were living a lot more harsher world than us,but a lot simpler also. This days people get stressed over all kind of stupid shit,also we do have a lower mental fortitude. Stress as a whole is not something that depends on the harshness of the situation,instead it is about our perception of it. Even fucking spoiled sjw retards get stressed over stupid twats and try to kill themself or do some shit.

    And yeah the water,food and environment do have an effect. Everything is filled with toxic shit all the time. All the fruits that sell on the market have nothing in common with the one i gather from threes or bushes.

    Also i don't have single white hair on my head,and i am very nihilistic bastard......still i lost my top head hair while being 22 ;).
