    August 18 is only nearly a bare month away. I doubt they can release the full game in 2014 though, probably Q1 2015.

    How many here are eligible for the beta? And did everyone agree on the in game codex thingie that we had a secret subforum on to decide?

    This isn't an inXile/Larian beta. The goal sounds like a release candidate-quality demo for getting UI and systems feedback. Once we're in August, it's nothing but testing and polishing from here on out with no additional content creation.

    I gave $50 if I remember correctly (though I didn't do the Codex thing because, meh, PoE). That must include beta access, no?

    We haven't seen a lot of stuff, so this isn't really surprising. The updates were mostly about systems and lore.

    On kickstarter minimal pledge including that is 100 bucks. So no unless they would pull of Larian and just give early access to all backers.

    Oh right. I think that was also one of digital add-ons?

    Yeah although if you finalized your pledge, you can't change it. I'm not sure if they've been offering support for manual add-ons or not.

    I forgot to pay for my $8 OOoE (which was an option) before I finalized my pledge and sent them an email about it, they said they were not able to change it for me.


    Apparently they are offering it, it just depends whether they answer your support email.

    I quite like the spider illithid/Vithracks. I think they could be interesting enough on their own without always needing to be compared to the illithid. Hopefully they take the opportunity to differentiate them as much as possible

    The other ideas like Xaurip are not so interesting.

    What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

    I still stand by my prediction that this will be released this year.

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    I pledged the cost of two and a half Razer mouse pads in Brazil, so I'm eligible.
