    So it seems like Owlcat Games is making bigger chnages to the AP's story this time.

    In 2019 instead of expecting that the writing of the computer RPG is on the same level that the tabletop, you need to expect that the computer game has better writing than the tabletop.

    What a time.

    The sad truth is that the people who drove nerd hobbies such as RPGs and video games have always been more or less left-leaning and sexually frustrated. The pozz and fetishism is coming from inside the industry.

    Russian lit is all-time best. Rainbow Empire all-time worst. No contest.

    The AP has a fat lesbi half-orc on the cover. Come on.

    It’ll be back on the chain soon enough. They like it there anyway. Power freaks them out.

    I wouldn't count on that, most rpg fans have no sense of style or mood. Since they accept eye candi-ness of divinity games, they won't be put off by pathfinder's cheesiness. But that can be applied to the overall modern take on the fantasy genre. Pathfinder is one thing, but open any 5th edition DnD rule book, and o fuck, dorky illustrations will make you vomit in no time. Therefore, I have no hope for BG3 to retain any of the charm of infinity engine games. Realms Beyond look more in line of what I want to see in the genre. Deadfire, despite all its flaws, also did not look half as bad and managed to evoke some of the old magic, at least visually.

    Nah,i like him more when he pretends to be a human.

    Also infi,i doubt that many expect the second game to be an amazing best seller or something. But i believe that it will sell around the same as the first one. Unless they fuck up with the marketing,like heavy sjw shit or epic exclusive.

    When you're using one of those pre-built adventures you pretty much have to build it up yourself anyway, as the DM. That was my experience with Rise of the Runelords, anyway. It's a bare framework of an adventure, with all the details missing or glossed over.

    Yeah, considering all the changes/additions they made to Kingmaker, I wouldn't be too worried about the quality of the content in the Wrath of the Righteous modules.

    I'm reading them now and seeing some great opportunities for non-lawful evil options. The crusade is riddled with traitors who are secretly loyal to the demons. If they're smart, they'll let you play as one. From the intro:

    From reddit:

    Honestly I am optimistic about this game. If you read the Kingmaker AP they were quite barebones but besides the last act, Owlcats managed to create a fun game witth decent enough writing. It was the best fun I had playing CRPG since a very long time.

    I only hope that this game won't have as much as time-rush like in Pf:K and gives more way to exploration instead. The explore-able zones in Pf:K weres quite small and usually serve for one-off encounter. Hopefully zones will be bigger in this game like in BG/BG2 where there are multiple encounters in each optional zones. Maybe making the masterpieces tied to exploring and optional encounters instead of RNG artisan while leveling your kingdom status in PfK.

    Of course hopefully the game is playable before 6 months mark. I can live with DLCs and some QoL or new classes being released later because I am definitely playing this game more than once if its at least as good as Pf:K.

    I just hope we can still apply mods fairly easily like the first game. I have no doubt they will do at least something stupid and the mods will fix it for them.

    Why would you read the entire story before playing the game though?

    I would like to have a look at the mythic system, and be modestly acquainted with the campaign. I don't think it'd be such a bad idea, as Owlcat might make some changes.

    Better yet, why would one willingly subject themselves to Pozzfinder writing and art?

    dont spoil the story to yourself.
    as said in thread, there are traitors and other shit. imagine knowing everything about story before you played kingmaker?
    there would be no feeling of exploration.

    on plus side there would be no rangers specced with shitty favored enemies either..
