Is wholegrain healthier? Sure, but I'd argue that white bread primarily gets its bad name from the commonly consumed processed shit, not real bread.
That "processed shit" is responsible for saving millions of lives because it can be mass-produced. It has nothing to do with syrups and shit. You can make bread that looks just like that without all that crap. The truth is adding all that stuff makes it more addictive so of course, these fat cat companies throw a ton of it in. It doesn't taste or feel nearly as good as the first picture, but the second picture saved the world.

I'm not 100% sure, but I just gotta believe, if anything does, it's buying games in Early Access that make Baby Jesus cry.

Please don't buy this. Please don't support scummy, shady practices like 'Early Access'. Do us all a favor. Don't encourage this greedy industry. You give these people an inch, they'll take a foot. We've all seen it.

Just wait.
Don't even wait. Take everything this person has said about early access and apply it to everything that is larian. Do us all a favor and don't partake in abldurs gate 3 at all.

What is all this anti-white bread hate? White sourdough bread is amazing and doesn't taste sweet at all.

What you shouldn't eat is wonder"bread" or other processed breads with tons of syrup in them.

White bread should look like this:

Not like this processed shit:

The combination of a slow-fermenting yeast with whole grain is certainly better for you. Cooking with quick-rising yeast is like min-maxing for the tutorial of an RPG.

So you're saying the mass-produced bread is to blame for the fact that I can't walk two steps without meeting hordes of entitled hominids? More reason to hate it, then.

It's a normal, public Steam Early Access release. You can't do that hush hush.
Wonderful, just gotta make sure my liquor cabinet is well stocked for tomorrow night.

Poles leaked the BG3 EA overworld Map, I think?

Oh, that's quite nice. I'm getting a sudden urge to recruit a Banshee and go plant my rod in some mine...

Some of Baldur's Gates districts are missing from that map, like Blackgate, so it will need to be fixed in EA.

But it looks amazing. Also not it's labeled Faerun, so the Underdark and the Planes like Hell will have their own maps no doubt.

Is 4 characters the party limit? That is... rather small isn't it?

Yes. D:OS had four characters. However, you can get six with mods, assuming BG3 will.have any, and that won't happen until, likely, way down the line.

Other than wrath of the righteous and the recent dungeons of naheulbeuk I don't think we're going to see many rpgs going beyond the party limit of 4.

Plus the 5e balance between pcs and monsters gets really messy the more you have. There's a reason they've given monsters extra actions such as legendary and lair actions to try to give power back to the monsters in 5e.

Speaking of that I wonder if larian's going to adapt those into BG3. Maybe we'll see tomorrow.

I miss rpgs partys of 6 or 8 person groups. Naheulbeuk was a nice call back to that thankfully.

Wow, this sucks. Never mind the awful portraits, the UI is barely readable.

Like everything else in this game it just looks like D:OS 2.5.

I get wanting to improve the interface over Infinity Engine games. It wasn't the best. But I'd take that over these miniscule looking icons and vague symbols that could mean anything. What does the pig mean? Is that Polymoprh? Summon Familiar? The hand is MageHand right? Or paralysis? It's blue so is it some kind of frost spell instead? Larian are just so awful at design. Everything they do is "just good enough" and people wank them off and say their games have "charm" because they have forced, badly written humour and no one but me could be bothered to get past the first act to see how bad it gets.

It is. But manageable, I think.

Four barbarians am I right? :)

Yeah, but D:OS you could spec into everything and anything and in that way cover all approaches. I think we are gonna see a lot of just basic setups here; fighter, mage, cleric and rogue - if not everyone multiclass like hell that is.

Or, you hover over the icon just once, you see the tooltips and after that you will remember what that button does. Don't pretend that anyone knew what the spell icons meant in the Infinity engine games when they encountered them for the very first time.

Have you tried Troubleshooter?
It has some of the largest scale battles among the recent TB tactitcs, and a cast of 8 (actually 9, but the last one comes pretty late) main characters.
