    Sometimes they almost get me with the "it takes away resources that could have been used on other things". I really wonder which part of the game would have greatly benefited from a textbox and three buttons.

    This game is too good to focus its discussion on pronouns.

    Pronoums are a huge con but the enslavement of manlets(Dwarves) is a huge pros

    The decline of RPG's is far older than Larian.

    If there is one thing that Trans-Freaks hate more than anything else it is normal looking heterosexuals. The uglyness in character customization is an intended feature, not just the work of an awful Artist.

    Then I will do what any real man would in my place, and completely reverse my opinion on the issue, and then delete all my old posts that contradict it.

    Nigga say what.

    I mean i agree with you on that, but you know how much GOLD you need to pay to have some random ass nerd cast a spell like Wish on you?

    I mean a commoner probably will never see more than 100 Gp in his life and that shit does not even cover part of the spells components.

    Trans are the poor of D&D.

    Why do people believe that devs put in pronouns because they are scared of a woke mob? Every video game dev iv met from EA to tiny studios in New England have been some of the most woke people iv ever met. They aren't being dishonest about their beliefs lol

    Feeling strongly about pronouns in either direction seems pretty lame I dunno

    My final stance on the question:

    Although the game seemed kinda shit and choreographed this kind of stuff before release to start with: https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads/the-steam-sales-and-releases-thread.45906/page-990#post-6608201

    We are talking about lv 10 heroes on end game of Solasta. Not lv 0 commoners. And wish was just one example. Limited wish on 3E costs 3,775 gp2 and if you look to the table of spellcasting and services spellcasting and services, a 13th level caster casting a 7th level spell would require 910 gold to do it. Sure, not something in range of a commoner, but on PF1e, if you can own 2 specialized slaves, you can pay this price.

    Getting someone to play a cleric in 2nd Edition was like trying to find a Priest in classic WoW. If you could find them you would be exceedingly nice to them because their class was a horrible fucking job to play.

    There's no such thing as "not caring about graphics in computer games". I thought people here were adults.

    Seemed interesting until I saw the pronoun shit, plenty of other non-political games to play out there.

    I'm playing on authentic mode + deadlier and merciless AI. I'll see whether anything requires more tweaking, I'm not a fan of mobs getting straight-up bonuses to their rolls.

    All rolls on 0, enemy AI at max.... and I will admit, I turned off somatic component of casting. Yes, it makes the game easier, but I don't care. I want my cleric with a hammer and shield. He can make gestures while the hammer is hanging from his wrist by a strap.

    Changing weapon sets is a free action, so it's not a big deal for caster clerics, but it might be a problem for melee clerics, yeah. That's why (among other things) I said Clerics aren't good fighters without multiclassing options.
