    Only one Godlike? I wonder if it will be a traumatized/angry person, due all the prejudice towards Godlikes...

    Come see the pandering inherent in the system

    Fucking duck faces, why are adult women doing that

    And yes this is an intentional callback.

    Yo where did you find that list? (where exactly in the game files). There's textures for characters other than that as well. I know where you can get the names, but not the sex/race/class combos

    Show Spoiler
    Aloth's portrait is female, and there's textures and a portrait for "Devil of Caroc". Durance appears to be a human as per his textures as well

    Just copied from SA. As for Aloth, he was announced that way too - maybe just a misleading portrait? That other dude is probably the 9th companion and missing class.

    I think the idea of booth girls would work a lot better if you got actual hot girls and then didn't dress them up like retards. This is one thing that clubs and lounges get right - hot girls in short skirts/tight dresses sell more beer, and I'm sure they'd sell more games than that girl with the elf ears.

    Anyways while I'm trying to ignore most of the negativity of this thread, one thing that does have me really concerned is the current engagement mechanics and class roles. They really need to rebalance guns and the engagement mechanics because its really boring if combat dictates the 1 man forward, 5 back system as always being the most effective. It seems the first step to doing this is really nerfing guns. The next step is going to be finding a way to make it more beneficial to risk bringing your intermediary classes into melee more often (paladin, ranger, rogue, cipher) to encourage both types of gameplay.

    I'd assume after these conventions are over, a few weeks.

    Still waiting for that, so I can try out the combat more and see what I think.

    Textures and a portrait was done for the Devil of Caroc, who looks a little bit like C3-P0, global variables lists confirmed companions: Aloth, Sagani, Pallegina, Eder and Hiravias

    Conversations confirm: Kana Rua and The Grieving Mother


    Will do some more digging.

    edit:
    Show Spoiler
    Can't find any hard evidence that Durance is a companion - but he probably is. There's no reference to him being a companion in the global variables or any of the conversation files.


    This is a female right?

    As for Caroc

    And there is texture work that matches the portrait with the head lines and everything.

    It's an elf, who can tell?
    But there is somehing feminine about the mouth. Cover it and it just looks like an angry elf.

    I think the eyes and cheekbones are feminine as well, YMMV.

    I'd say that the eyes and cheekbones are merely elven - which are inherently feminine, but not enough to be strictly female.

    Yeah Aloth was a male during the KS campaign. I'm positive the male/female ratio will be 4/4 though.

    Can someone do me a favor and ask Josh on Twitter for the PE Recovery time formula. I *think* armor is multiplicative but I want to get the 100% - ie. (Recovery time * armor speed) and I'm not sure when other bonuses are added.

    Could be (Base Recovery * Armor Speed) + (Weapon style + Miscellaneous), but that's just a guess

    I need this answer for my next suggestion thread
