    Who cares if its buggy on release? for a week or 2 steam will be full of buttmad reviewes then it will even out by people that actually enjoy this type of game.
    Every single game of troika was a buggy mess but they were good crpgs non the less.

    And where's Troika now? Buggy release means the journos get their chance for a worst shitstorm than otherwise, which means worse reputation, which means worse sales now and in the future. Owlcat does not need the reputation for buggy releases if they can help it.

    Tbh At same time you have Bethesda, that release and re-release games with bugs from 10 years ago yet have 2 massive RPG franchises .. But anyway , being ''The RPG studio with buggy games'' isn't a thing that Owlcat would want to be known by going foward anyway.

    Xamenos they are talking about tabletop and how pcs become immortal at mythic tier 9. dodo montioned mythic tier 9 after lacrymas said character level 6 and lann thinks its spell tier 9.

    I dont get where you got the idea that i said owlcat's mythic is same as paizo's?

    This is the Wrath crpg thread. I assumed you were talking about the crpg. Didn't catch the beginning of the conversation. Apologies.

    They got rid of their publisher. Hopefully it was them who pushed the game out early and they will have more freedom this time

    In any event they need to focus on what matters and get shit working properly.

    Let the geniuses do their work.

    Your campaigns are low magic 5E adventures.

    This game is a mythic adventure where you fight hordes from the Abyss. A Vrock which is considered a "low tier" demon is CR 9 https://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monster-listings/outsiders/demon/vrock/

    Well said. You already have Solasta and BG3 as low level D&D adventures. On Kingmaker, I only played the first chapter once. All of my subsequent playtroughs on ch 1 are solo on story mode to reach lv 8 quickly. Then I move the difficulty up about when facing Stag Lord. That way, I don't need to spend a lot of time on low levels.

    Its got that journos will not volunteer for this and will have to be assigned meaning there will be some delay and that journalists are not trusted by many.

    That is weird, huh. Normally you find developers tweeting about this kind of stuff. Or some such.

    Put chix in charge get random and weird. Do like said chix though so random and weird usually in a good way as long as they're not distracting from the geniuses.

    I see explicit sexism in you implicitly suggesting that "chix" cannot be geniuses.

    The distribution has a skinnier tail geniuses-wise but in this case I'm speaking merely empirically.

    IQ is overrated. Doesn't matter how fast your hamster can spin the wheel if it isn't going anywhere. In terms of genius tho yeah that's kind of a g-loaded concept and probably highly correlated with innovative and compelling level/class design.

    Most Paizo modules are excellent and well appreciated amongst people who play rpg. You are delusional if you think you will do better than their teams as homebrewer. You are not the only one , many DM are arrogant , think themselves as genius doing better than everyone else, think they can tweak the rules impose restrictions on things that got playtested for months.
    The only thing we can agree with is its generic, sure it is, its classic d&d. Doing as good as them ,alone ,require considerable amount of work, an amount of work i hardly see any lone DM willing to do.

    To be fair, Lacrymas hates "epic" stuff and most Pathfinder AP are very epic in nature. Of course, he should't have said a "adventure which I and my group would prefer to play" instead of "shitty setting and lousy modules".

    So, there was a new text file leak from the new beta... BIG spoilers ahead:
    Show Spoiler
    The secret ending is you and your companions becoming new gods, with a realm of your own that changes based on your chosen mythic. Also you can save Areelu and let her become a goddess with the rest of your gang.

    Show Spoiler

    "Key": "640a7a9a-41ce-42ba-a78c-bcf846cddbff",
    "Value": "\"I've managed to acquire six crystals, which is enough to share this power with my companions and give the last one to you, Areelu. All of us will venture into eternity together.\""

    and
    Show Spoiler
    Aeon, as predicted, can retcon the whole game, with no Worldwound happening at all.

    The things definitely seem logical Aeon clearly fits basically pulling game developer and the crystal stuff makes perfect sense since its basically end of the cycle. You have been made by her and now you make her.

    Also i kinda hope Secret ending if you are trickster does involve Shika and you having fun, like its missed opportunity to not have two trolls try to one up each other. I also hope Aeon has chance to basically pull HISTORY IS WRITTEN BY THE WINNERS and taunt Descari as he pulls his ace.
