    How the hell are you in Vordakai's Tomb at 50h of gameplay? I'm still in Season of Bloom and have more than 60h lol

    A question about the respec mod: my PC is lawful good, if I use the respec mod to make a new build and also pick lawful good, what happens to my campaign and kingdom? Will anything get fucked up?

    You don't need to use a mod to respec your main. You only need the mod to change the stats/early levels of your companions. Just talk to the Pathfinder society woman who hangs out in the tavern. I've never changed alignment during a playthrough so I can't answer your actual question. If you're playing on challenging or harder you'll need to turn the option to respec on in the difficulty menu. You can turn it back off after with no consequence.

    I wouldn't fuck with that mod if I were you, not on a save that you have a lot of time in. It can do weird shit to your characters' appearance that doesn't pop up until much later. I've lost about 15h of progress this way. The respec mod did this:

    Just respec your main using the built in method. If you've already used up all the free ones then pay. You get very rich later anyway.

    I'm playing through this again. My character is a wizard conjurer, and I brought the midget bard, barbarian lady, tower shield lady, dead lady, and healer/buffer who can't fight. I'm enjoying the pit spells and the necromancer spell that automatically hits (bonebreaker or something). We're all low level still, so we got wrecked by the werewolves in the cave (but otherwise defeated all opponents before killing the stag lord).

    The only astra/thanademon that I've fought that was remotely challenging was the one that spawns in special circumstances regarding the Cloak of Sold Souls, even he is just a matter of bursting him down before he hurts you too much, not too difficult if you have the right setup.

    I read some advice online beforehand that you should finish off the story missions with extreme prejudice or you risk a game over screen. So while I've been doing most of the side content, I haven't been exploring random map areas unless it's the between-chapter down time. Maybe that's how? Anyway Steam tells me I'm now on about 60h and I'm in the

    barbarian extermination section straight after Vordakai.

    Is there a way to start Varnhold DLC during campaign? I have finished Season of Bloom, my party is level 10 and I still have a lot of time until next development in the Curse quest, so I decided to go to Varnhold, but I can only chat with Varn and that's it. He doesn't give any quests. What gives?

    ferratilis Varnhold DLC is a separate campaign, you can start it at any point. Just press "new game", choose it in the menu and import your main campaign save.

    And it's a good idea to do it before the varnhold chapter as it ties into the chapter in the main game. Plus the dungeon in the Varnhold DLC is very cool.

    Build teleports, you'll have plenty of time.
    Also do not rush your playthrough, maybe they will release DLC plus it's easy to burn out if you rush it.

    Teleporters are good advice though I doubt kingmaker will get any dlc at this point and definitely be urgent with main quest.
    just dont sit on your ass for rest of the map

    I started playing this two weeks ago after getting bored as fuck with Xenoblade Chronicles.

    I'm enjoying so far the game, but I just failed 102 attacks in a row with bless, inspire courage from Linzi and I want to ask a question: is the RNG of this game just crap or am I missing something?

    The enemy in question had 26 AC. My most buffed warrior (Amiri) was attacking with +13 and the least buffed was attacking with +6. I didn't even hit my target once in 21 rounds of combat. Is this like that the whole game?

    It
    It was a doomspider on the Bald Hilltop. I'm really asking out of curiosity: I DM a lot of DnD in real life and I never saw this kind of RNG in a table nor in a videogame. I know very well the rules of the game, so I was observing in awe how this monster was killing my entire party. I had plenty of resources, though: I didn't use them because, in all honesty, I thought that I didn't need anything else besides the usual bless, enlarge, rage to kill a 26 AC monster. Also the doomspider chewed through my Valerie's 28 AC. That's why I came to ask: it was just bad luck or is the RNG this unfair all along the game?

    A) you're wrong about the numbers B) you've missed an enemy buff/immunity C) it's a bug

    Pick one. Either way the answer to your question is "no". The RNG always seemed fair to me.

    I'm sure it's not A because of what I said to the other poster, so it must be that I didn't check properly the information about the monster. Maybe I was getting some kind of disadvantage on the rolls or whatever I didn't saw in the logs, because it just makes no sense.

    I have never had unhittable enemies outside of the normal rules/immunities. It sounds like a bug.

    I'm afraid not, because I closed the game and went to attend IRL obligations. I will try again tonight and check thoroughly. The monster was this one: https://pathfinderkingmaker.fandom.com/wiki/Doomspider

    Does anyone know what Avellone's contribution to this game is specifically? He's listed as a writer, but so far I haven't seen anything that seemed even remotely "Avellonian." You know, like conversations with Dakkon, Kreia, or Durance. This game's companions seem flat as a pancake, in comparison. I'm not shitting on the story, I was just wondering.

    Nok-Nok is indeed a great companion, both in terms of damage he does and how funny he is. My guess was that Avellone wrote either Harrim (a depressed cleric sounds like something Avellone would write) or those two tiefling sisters (because of their mysterious background), but still neither seemed like anything he has written before. First time you talk to Durance or Grieving Mother in PoE you can see they were penned by him from a mile away.

    I'm never removing Nok-Nok from my party. :cool:

    I beat the encounter easily now. I guess I just had the proverbial stroke of bad luck where you just get the 0.0012% result of the year. Thanks anyway!
