    How is the combat compared to the first one?

    Any link explaining the differences?

    I heard about less action points some time ago.

    If it's anything like the EA there's typos everywhere.

    There is no typo, it's just shit writing, as in shitty use of the English language. Like an 8 year-old putting on his best Oscar Wylde impression.

    In fact, that line could have been straight from NuTorment. No one knows how to express themselves any more. I blame the Internet. And millennials.

    And yes, the "wylde" thing was intentional, to prove my pointe.

    So my favourite RPG archetype is usually a dwarf with a giant smash hammer, here tho it seems their natural trait is "+1 sneaking". I don't exactly wanna play a rogue so what about Wayfarer? A survivalist of sorts, with animal talk, trap disarming, bow etc. Is that a way to maximize the natural talent? Or does it matter fuck all in the long run and I can just pick whatever profession I like?

    Just to clarify, I wasn't saying the "gray" was a typo. I was saying that, if the full release is anything like the EA version, you'll be finding typos pretty frequently. I saw the use of an apostrophe to refer to the plural of a noun.

    You mean "to prove mine pointe" of course.

    If it's like the first one, your starting class is just an initial skill point and stat point allocation. You can take any ability or use any combat style your stats allow.

    Great. It's fully voice acted. That's where the budget went, instead of giving us a graphics engine from this century.

    Millennials mang. I just knew millennials would fuck up this game because redding is teh hard.

    In all my years of pen & paper I don't recall ever stating "I tell her that I wish to defecate on her countenance" instead of just talking to whatever character the GM is currently playing and say "Imma shit on yo head ya damned hoe" except perhaps when we were kids and thought that's how you done did it

    I hypothesized that way of character expression is done so they don't have to write 7 (6 origins + custom) different manners of speech for the characters. You get to imagine how each one speaks and their choice of words. They are trying to have their cake and eat it.

    My game crashes on launch so there's that.

    Graphics whoring is like .1 degree of incline over demanding voice acting in the grand scheme of things :M

    The graphics would've been like this with or without voice acting.
