It’s that time of year again! As the footsteps of marathoners fade, Boston welcomes thousands of PAX-goers into its loving arms -- us among them!
Check out some footage from the Pax East show floor and how Thomas is taking big risks.
Quite some time has passed since the last time players got their hands on Divinity: Original Sin 2, and a lot has changed in the meantime. We’ve been working hard to prepare something really fun for you guys, so come pay us a visit.
We’ll be showing off the new evolved combat system of Divinity: Original Sin 2. We've made a PVP arena where players can challenge each other (or us for that matter) to an epic session of tactical turn-based combat. We're showing three maps, each made exclusively for Pax. It’s just a small demo of the whole game, but a highly addictive one.
The demo showcases some of Divinity: Original Sin 2’s new features, including new skills, elemental interactions, and art. Use your Source powers to bless or curse surfaces, and make use of vertical combat to pick off enemies from a vantage point.
In Divinity: Original Sin 2, you can use ladders, ledges, and floors to your advantage in combat.

Pick an NPC, courtesy of GOG
During our Kickstarter campaign, the folks over at GOG supported one of our high-level tiers and earned the right to design their very own NPC. But they’ve done us one better, and their community has three great characters to choose from. They worked together with our team to bring these characters to life, and now they want you to choose which will end up in the game.
Head over here to cast your vote!
Your choices are:
Doryld "The Doryld" Surpass
On a soapbox in a town square, madman Doryld "The Doryld" Surpass, messiah-in-his-own-head, proclaims his divinity and rallies his (non-existent) followers to his side. He is the new Divine! His audience of three, two of whom are drunk (the other may be you), ask for proof of his powers. He resists. They insist. He deflects - only the true Divine would say no when asked to demonstrate his powers. He asks them what good happened in their lives today. The drunks say they found a bottle of wine. The Doryld claims responsibility for that. One of the drunks is converted.
Fadeland Johns sits in the tavern in Driftwood yapping about the good old days. Young 'uns today don't know nothin', back then real adventurin' was done with a bloody sword in one hand and a bottle in the other. Johns'll go out there and show 'em how it's done. Soon as she finishes this drink. If you say the slightest word against her she'll draw on you, and you'll have to kill her. Then she gets back up on her stool and starts drinking again... because behind the mask of the adventurer she's undead. The will to adventure keeps her alive. The decrepit state of her body keeps her from leaving the tavern.
Eithne wanders the Blood Forest, masked and cloaked, and laden with books and scrolls. She was a Divine Order librarian until the Black Ring put her whole institute of learning to the torch. Desperately trying to save her precious books, Eithne perished in the blaze. But, as the magical scrolls combusted and their ashes littered her corpse, she was resurrected. With a burning zeal to spread forgotten knowledge and a passionate hatred of the Black Ring, she travels north through Beckonbridge Fort to establish a new library. Of course, she has books to trade - mostly rare and arcane knowledge better left unlearnt...
The Wonderful World of Drathe
If you’ve had a glance at the “#dos2” hashtag on Twitter in the last several weeks, you may have noticed a slew of truly amazing Divinity: Original Sin 2-inspired images by artist Anna Rulska (@Drathe90). Our team is going nuts over her renderings of characters in D:OS2 as faces of the tarot.
Check out her Twitter feed for lots of really beautiful (and, in some cases, really funny) artwork and comics related to the entire Divinity series and plenty more of your favorite RPGs.
Oh yeah, ForkTong was so annoyed that Bard didn't make it.
On the other hand, after what he did with the Polymorph skill, he can't complain too much without looking like a hypocrite.
However, I could still claw my way out of the nasty situation. With my mage, I cast a Bless spell on my Warrior’s surrounding area, which turned the hostile fire into a Blessed flame that healed any character in the affected area. But it didn’t stay safe for long, as Vincke’s mage cast a Curse spell on the healing flame to revert it to its original state.
One element that Vincke pointed out were the small silver puddles called Source surfaces. If one of your characters stands on the special puddle, you can gain Source points, which are used for specific skills. However, there are limited Source surfaces available in the area, so both sides will need to move fast in order to get it. In addition, there’s a single chest in the area that contains various abilities and items. You’re not just fighting for bragging rights, but also for extra loot.
Yeah, you can make a mix of Lyric Suite, Cleve and Donald Trump out of him. Something fitting the theme of Divinity, crazy and with lots of potential(on top of being walking codex meme).It's too bad Doryld is in last place he sounds like the most interesting one out of the three.
There's a slight possibility for one of them to be turned into walking codex meme while for the other there's none.
There's a new armor/magic armor system. Physical skills deplete armor, while magical attacks destroy your magic armor. Some characters have one or both, depending on where their affinities lie. The armor protects you from debilitating effects like Fear, so getting rid of your opponents' armor should be your first step.
