    I guess I'll have to wait for the EE before I play then.

    Why do these guys only use their Kickstarter updates to promote Paizo merchandise?

    Varnhold's lot DLC was ok. Would have preferred it if it was set in the campaign, with level cap expanded 5 levels. It's not like the game isn't difficult enough to take it. I'll take that back though if they plan to go to level 40 in a sequel.

    I haven't known Paizo to use that aesthetic ever.

    I felt that some of the character portraits and music during their storyline cutscenes feel kinda jRPGish (especially Tristian's), but nothing that really annoys me since I like some jRPGs.

    There's one last DLC planned, but it was delayed. I don't think it affects the game too much though, as it's supposed to be an infinite dungeon mode.

    It is OK but better to wait for enhanced edition.

    Does anyone else have problems claiming the Silver Lake region? I'm now entering the Varnhold chapter and have completed the Hunter quest a long time ago, but I still have no claim available.

    I think you need to level up Community to get access to more claims.

    EDIT: Or maybe level up Loyalty as Daidre says.

    Claimed it as usual on my last run on 1.3 patch. Afair you also need Kamelands available for claiming to claim Silversteps, 40 Loyalty and Councilor rank 3 for this one.
    Other guesses that
    a) Quest is no completed, there is second part in Grove
    b) There was known bug when choosing murderous option was not completing it properly.

    Weird, the quest is marked as finished, and I let the guy go. I also have Kamelands, community rank 5, loyalty rank 3, plenty of loyalty. The only thing I did not do is go back to the village to tell on him to the merchant, but I don't remember needing to do that the last time. Maybe I should try doing that as well, or leveling loyalty a bit more.

    I have not read or played it, but I believe it is commonly considered to be one of the best APs Paizo put out.

    Do checks about finding traps or secrets for example only happens once? I don't think they are like in the IE games for example where a check happens every round or something, is that correct?

    I’m not sure if it’s every round, but they are definitely continually checked until discovered.

    Actually, no. You get only one attempt on Perception check until a level up. But from each character, and they have different perception radius depending on how high their skill is.

    D'oh! Turns out I did have the claim, and probably for some time, I just never got the notification. Maybe because I did the quest before completing other requirements.

    Why are there no cool builds in Kangmaker?

    Everything that's even remotely cool is either gimped or ruined by something else.

    For instance, mages were cool in BG because you could cast stuff like Time Stop, or massive damage spells, and felt very powerful. In Kangmaker, even aside from the rest mechanics that gimp them, they don't do that much damage or have any epic spells, unless you cheese the ray spells and become an arcane archer essentially.

    If you wanted to build a cool swordsman, on the other hand, you got:

    1) Duelist - completely gimped build. Look at its description, is there anything there that sounds even remotely interesting or powerful? Your defining ability would probably be parry/riposte, except it's a complete joke, since your base defense will be much higher than your BAB as a duelist, so parrying would be counter-productive. Your ultimate ability adds some stat damage or tiny bleeding damage? Wtf... So this is basically a snorefest build with high defense and nothing else. What this has to do with the notion of a duelist, I don't know.

    2) Sword saint / kensai - completely retarded build. Sword saint, swordsman, etc. Anybody rolling this would want to create a powerful sword master, not a freaking mage, so why did they make this a hybrid magic class?

    3) Aldori duelist - Basically same as duelist, purely defensive class that will put you to sleep.

    4) Two handed fighter - this one is actually pretty decent performance-wise, putting out good damage, but zero skill/involvement. Just auto-attack and go to sleep.

    Just because you don't know them, it does not mean they don't exist.

    I guess you didn't see the gnome sorcerer illusionist with crazy DC Weird that one shots enemy packs in hardest part of the game. No melee build can match that.

    That's my freaking point. Kangmaker has these retarded builds that no one would want to play for any reason other than they happen to be effective. Are there a lot of people growing up and watching movies about gnome sorcerer illusionists casting Weird spells? Is that what you wanted to be growing up? Yeah, exactly. Or maybe roll a Sword Saint/Paladin/Rogue/Bloodlines Priest multiclass that can use spell A together with ability B to produce a time continuum ripple and kill stuff with farts.
