    Not only that, I have it on good authority that Infinitron is secretly a Bonapartist and a traitor to the crown of France!

    I have info from a reliable source that Putin promised Infinitron a dacha on the Crimea if he meddles in the US elections in favour of Trump.

    According to JarlFrank Infinitron was the driving force behind all the evil that befell him. He told me as much last time I met him near a local supermarket where he was begging for money (he has been kicked out of his appartment).
    I had to buy him a Döner kebab and a cheap bottle of vodka just to get him off me. I now buy my groceries someplace else.

    I hear Infinitron was hired by Lithuanian Hitmen as an accountant/banker.

    I understand that there will be prestige classes in the game that the developer is planning to move away from the standard SRD prestige classes and to incorporate elements of Wizardry 7 classes (https://www.realms-beyond.com/forum/index.php?topic=38.0).

    What prestige class options do we think we will get in the game and what are people hoping for?

    Last I heard this was still something the developers were still debating. They may very well end up using some of the familiar SRD based prestige classes we have seen in the NWN games. However, if they stick with the no (additional) multi-classing plan, they will have to change some of the prerequisites a bit. Since it's not a Faerun / D&D game, there obviously won't be any Red Wizards or Doomguides, but there may be some sort of other prestige classes for a specific race, ethnicity, and / or alignment that fits in with RB lore.

    I'd be interested in something like a Psion class / prestige class considering we haven't seen that in any of the official D&D games since Dark Sun. That said, I'm not sure that would actually feel significantly different from a wizard unless they came up with a lot of unique abilities.

    My main hope is that each base class has at least a couple of options to fit the characters you want to roleplay. So for example: a Fighter could become either a knight or a brigand, a paladin could become either a divine champion or a blackguard, a wizard could be a battlemage / eldritch knight or an arcane archer, a rogue could become a shadowdancer or an assassin, etc.

    They're Germans, aren't they? So it must be beer, sausages and nazi paraphernalia that they've spent it on.

    The shout out to the KotC2 development is a classy move. Would be nice to see some synergy between those two projects.

    Happy they've gone classic fantasy setting instead of trying hard to be fresh by doing something weird and unappealing as usual.

    Does this mean there will be a subtle shift toward a more Ravenloft influence on the game?

    Having a level designer from Sacred 2 doesn't inspire much confidence though, that game's levels weren't particularly great.
