    Heyo folks!

    Just dropping by after the 1.0 launch rush. Clarify a few things, so and so. First of all, thank you to all of you who left us warm wishes, know that we appreciate it! For the others, go f... just kidding, y'all have the right to criticize whatever you want. Even if we don't see eye to eye on some topics, eh that's life, we don't need to agree on everything. That said, let's go!

    I did not ban you, I kicked you after warning you first to stop spamming and going off topic (there is a Tabletop channel for that...). Copy/Pasting wikipedia pages is pretty obnoxious on Discord, and you were so heated that you were constantly arguing with everyone about tiny little things. Like I said in the Kick message, feel free to come back after you cool your head. It's all good my man.

    Alright I feel like the pronoun thing is very controversial here. First, that choice was already there in the backer build - the only difference between that build and the release build is that we fixed more bugs. As to why we added it, it had always been in our todo list - it simply didn't get added before because we were working on other things, nothing more. There is no grand scheme as to hide things behind the curtain for a big reveal as if we were some BBEG at the end of a campaign.

    Now, as for our stance on the matter, it's fairly simple: We believe trans people have as much right to exist as any other person, so we added that option in. It literally doesn't change anything about the game, the story remains the same, the gameplay remains the same, the NPCs behavior don't change, so yea apologies if some of you get triggered by that - you can just choose to ignore it. The issue has never been a political one here (we're not americans), and it's not like we force you to use the "They" pronoun.

    Anyway, if that doesn't align with your vision of the world eh that's cool too - like I said, we don't need to agree on everything. I'm not here to try to convince you, just giving you our side of the coin. I'm sure there are enough games out there for you to enjoy.

    Lol good one, that made me laugh x) We don't need to do diversity hires, in the 17 of us here are pretty diverse already! You can find a picture of the team on the website. If anything I'm sure we'd love more programmers :p

    Man that's some top tier writing, 10/10 would get roasted again by Generic Giant Spider. But c'mon leave the cats out of it:argh:

    You know what? You're right, that'd have been better. Not much to add here.

    -------------

    Anyway, now that the game is out I'll drop by a bit more frequently like I did a year ago. And like I said we don't have to agree to chat here, it's cool - that's you folks' turf, not mine.

    Cheers folks, Myzzrym out

    1) Add multiclassing

    2) fix beard
    3) convert to mythras or assh rpg system.

    I would like to see some new cantrip for melee combat, such as Booming Blade or Green-Flame Blade. It can be good for Spellblade or Shadowcaster.

    The implementation of the tabletop rules is finished, the combat engine is finished, the short and sparse on story campaign is finished.
    The UI still feels unfinished, even though I know otherwise. Many classes missing, some abilities missing, the campaign editor is very lean on features as well.

    No, you still have to roll 4 dudes and make them clear all the encounters.

    Myzzrym - there is something wrong with saving/applying changes to the settings. E.g I have disabled depth of field and it is still on in the game. Enabled moving map using mouse to the screen borders (it is not working), probably some other stuff also.

    Are you happy with Steam/GOG sales after the first day?

    So what's the Codex consensus, is this any good? I only saw the trailer and the graphics are as appealing as an old man's penis.

    You deal with a lot of vampires and undeads on the first half of the game. Why not include a option to become one of then?

    Does anyone else feel like there are some dialogue bugs? My Pragmatic/cynical wizard keeps telling jokes, while my dumb vulgar ranger reads Old Timarian, even though they don't know the language.

    You can check 'tutorial' section in the journal.
    This doesn't make any sense to me. Are the game about trans people? Is the game's lore support that in any way? If not, then what the hell is that box doin there unless it represents your political views despite your later claim that it's not?

    Other than already infamous pronoun feature I found amusing the neutral voice option. Like, again, how's the game's lore supports that? Because if we forget about all this for a second it looks like common nice high-fantasy setting, maybe I'm missing something here?

    Just to be clear: I'm fine with deviant games. Fine with deviant settings if it's coherent enough. I'm a deviant myself tbqh. But. I loathe shoving any political agenda into my cultural products, so fucking tired of it even. And this looks excatly like it, convince me otherwise.

    Barring that, the game plays very, very good. If only char models were prettier, it's a fantasy, ffs.

    Was willing to play, enjoy, and promote the game, but by having your say, again, and expecting everyone else to shut up you've made it doubly political since there is a name for a polis with that rule: tyranny. Tyrants can't bear to hear anyone else out, but we're not all tyrants here so to sum up why I'm requesting a refund and encouraging everyone else to as well:

    (1) By participating in the LARP that anyone with a concern doesn't want trans people to exist you facilitate our dehumanization and all that flows from that. You have very powerful people and corporations on your side who are ruthlessly imposing their will on the populace and a populace rightfully wary of the genocidal - you're the one using that language, not us. Stop defaming us and our people.

    (2) If it doesn't change the game it shouldn't be there. That's poor design.

    (3) Don't apologize when you don't mean it - if you did you wouldn't insult us with the very next word.

    (4) By buying into all this bullshit you're exactly Americans - that's where all this comes from. If you want to defend your own people from American encroachment you're on the wrong side here. Doubly - the "anything political is wrong" bullshit is also from America and designed to lower everyone's guard to anything that follows.

    Peace, brother, hope you can learn from this.

    Nah i just put me speedhacks to 4x,runs a lot better now,verticality still annoying tho.

    Yup,the writing is 6th grade level,the more i play the more laugh me ars off about fucking retarded cringe. The game feels like a prequel to NWN,one of those shitty PS2 rpgs where you have a bunch of empty rooms and static npcs waiting to give their one line and be inactive.....like ultima 9.

    I recommend GoG Wallet Refund so you can support gaming without supporting devs who want to insult you repeatedly.
