    From the responses in this thread I'm assuming most people here aren't familiar with Paizo in the least

    We were just hoping that the poz would remain self-contained within the tabletop.

    Can't wait to multiclass Anevia into Slayer and chose BIGOTS and WHITE MALES as her studied targets (favored enemies).
    What other classes will work well with that build?

    really doubt she’ll be a companion unless Owlcat’s gotten very lazy about creating their own characters.

    It's a sad thing, comrade. Infinitron should act just as Moses did when he parted the Red Sea and create one.

    No clue why he hasn't. These Russians developers have proven themselves capable and are bound to create even more games - possibly even more successful than last.

    If they throw the original module's writing out the window, this has a chance to be very good, but I guess I'm being fabulously optimistic.

    I warned you guys about this in the 2016 SOD thread.

    Fortunately, Scott only wrote the first part of the AP, and none of her progressive fantasy characters are massively important in the long run.

    I'd be more concerned about the fact the Mythic progression system is completely shit, and just dumb power creep. Hopefully Owlcat can salvage something from it.

    It looks like they change it a lot, and also like only the MC will be mythic wich is a good way to handle it.

    On the contrary, there’s really not much to throw out the window in the first place. These modules are full of third person exposition; other than a few lines here or there, most NPC interactions are left up to the DM.

    Sentence for sentence, the vast bulk of the writing in Kingmaker was original to Owlcat and not taken from the adventure path (there‘s little to take). The stuff about the trans lesbian in the first Wrath of the Righteous module is meant as background information for the DM, the same way that the first Kingmaker module contains a bunch of background info on Oleg and his wife. They didn’t transcribe that shit directly into the game, they wrote their own dialogue.

    I just read through the first WotR module. There’s one lengthy speech (pretty much written as third person exposition) two letters, and that’s about it. Owlcat’s gotta compose everything else themselves. They’re good at that.

    I know why it's called Pozzfinder but even I didn't expect the pozz to be so in your face. It's literally the first NPC they describe.

    Because people didn't believe it.


    Let's hope he writes the succubus companion.

    I have never played or read any Pathfinder stuff, but based on what they did with Kingmaker, and despite some pozziness, it was still very well made, even the "pozz"-stuff was tolerable, and them having said that they're retooling/refining/etc Wrath of the Righteous, I'm willing to give them benefit of the doubt...for now.

    On how many sequels to the games MCA originally worked he was invited to work again?
    Makes you think.

    Makes sense. Ride the high while you can. I wonder what Owlcat team must've felt when they realized literal nobodies without even a Wiki page outdid genre veterans like Obsidian.
