    So the closest game to Baldur's Gate we've had in years is going to be released in a couple of weeks. It's very similar to the D&D ruleset, so I'm sure most of you are familiar with it to some extent.

    What is known about classes so far:

    https://owlcatgames.com/forums/showthread.php?19-Information-known-about-the-game-so-far

    Classes
    -The game includes: Alchemist, Barbarian, Bard, Cleric, Druid, Fighter, Inquisitor, Magus, Monk, Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Sorceror and Wizard.
    -The Rogue, Monk, and Barbarian all follow rules from Pathfinder Unchained.
    -Multiclassing is in the game.
    -Prestige Classes are in the Game. Arcane Trickster, Stalwart Defender, Mystic Theurge, Dragon Disciple, and Eldritch Knight are confirmed. Aldori Sword Lord is a maybe, as are some other Prestiges.
    -Bards will have access to Bardic masterpieces.
    -You can become a Fallen Paladin if your alignment shifts too much.
    -Since there is no mounted combat, Paladins will not have access to the Mount Divine Bond.
    -Archetypes will be part of the game. There will be three for each class (although some classes may get alternate class features instead or in addition, such as Wild Bloodlines for Sorcerers and Sub-Schools for Wizards). The archetypes and features already in development or in the Beta are:
    Alchemist - Vivisectionist, Grenadier, Chiurgeon
    Bard - Archaeologist, Flame Dancer, Thunder Caller
    Barbarian - Armored Hulk, Mad Dog, Invulnerable Rager
    Cleric - Crusader, Herald Caller, Ecclesitheurge
    Druid - Blight Druid, Defender of the True World, Feyspeaker
    Fighter - Aldori Defender, Tower Shield Specialist, Two-Handed Fighter
    Inquisitor - Sacred Huntsman, Monster Tactician, Tactical Leader
    Magus - Eldritch Archer, Eldritch Scion, Sword Saint/Kensai
    Monk - Scaled Fist, Sensei, Chained monk (that is, the non-unchained version of the Monk)
    Paladin - Divine Hunter, Divine Guardian, Hospitaler
    Ranger - Freebooter, Flame Warden, Storm Walker
    Rogue - Eldritch Scoundrel, Knife Master, Thug
    Sorcerer - Wild Bloodlines (Empyreal, Sage, and Sylvan) (Regular Bloodlines are: Abyssal, Arcane, Celestial, Draconic, Elemental, Fey, Infernal, Serpentine, and Undead)
    Wizard - Arcane Bomber, Scroll Savant, Thassilonian Specialist.

    -Currently the game only has weapon divine bond for paladins, but Owlcat intends to implement the alternative Divine Bond Options in the Healer's Handbook. The Creative Director makes no promises though.
    -Druid's Wildshape and Polymorph will be from a predetermined list, though there is the possibility of making some shapes unlockable. Special attacks will follow the rules as closely as possible.

    If you want more information just google Pathfinder + what you want to know more about.

    So what are you planning to play as and what possible builds do you have in mind?

    Rogue, I guess. Companion-wise, I'll take the barb, fighter, bard, wizard, and inquisitor, so rogue seems a good fit.

    I pretty much fancy to play a skullcleaving, kill-it-all barbarian, but I don't know how well the game will support that.

    Let's see if it's as replayable as BG (there was nothing quite like it back on its day), or if it's more like POE, where you play once and forget forever.

    Well, barb without Frenzied Zerker is kinda weak... let's see. At least it's pretty simple to roleplay.

    My preferred role usually has boatload of skills. So probabbly BARD, then rogue or wizard.

    Half orc magus. And half orcs don't get any particular ability penalties in pathfinder, if that's your problem. Is that your problem?

    Anyway, going with magus, always liked gishes. Wish there was a witch class in the game, I love witches in pathfinder.

    First of all, elf...
    Yeah, yeah.
    Secondly, bard or druid. Probably the former since being a neutral evil druid sounds pretty dissonant.

    Grow up, boy. When everyone else gets a bonus and you don't, you are at a penalty.

    Elf gets a bonus to Int.
    Gnome and Halfling gets a bonus to Cha (for sorcerer).
    Humans get a bonus feat and bonus skill points.
    Half-orcs get... *drumroll, please* weapon familiarity... with orc weapons that wizards and sorcerers do not qualify for, and a couple of melee weapons so that they can stand their squishy d4 HD selves in combat. Yay!
