    How the fuck did someone manage to find a way to put Solasta's verticality in the cons section rather than a strong pro?

    This IS the ideal 5e game (or at least its skeleton).

    Also... NETZWERKAUSLASTUNG LAUFWERKAUSLASTUNG, why does downloading video games sound like a declaration of war in your cursed language?

    Lacrymas can you send me a vocaroo where you say NETZWERKAUSLASTUNG LAUFWERKAUSLASTUNG?

    The character graphics are so NWN-like. I wish they'd gone with drawing-style portraits over these horrible 3D-rendered abominations

    Are you installing the full release or the early access version? It still says it's in early access for me, but it's still the 26th in my time zone.

    LoL some italian would do a lot of fapping tonight. Lacrymas have become quite the sex symbol on the codex. Should make an onlyfans account.

    I compared the graphics to NWN2 a while back -
    And I still think it should've been 2D.

    I think the graphics in general are perfectly fine, I just don't think the characters look particularly good and relying on stills of the character models for portraits is a mistake

    Thought I would use my first ever post on the Codex to contribute a little something, though the hasty translation doesn't do the original text justice.
    https://www.gamekult.com/jeux/solasta-crown-of-the-magister-3050880889/test.html
    (pretty good website btw, usually way more severe than mainstream medias and they're tests are really good most of the time)

    + Excellent tactical combat
    + Good fidelity to 5E
    + Elegant art with beautiful environments
    + Tactical verticality
    + 40h and highly replayable
    + Tons of settings to adjust difficulty
    + Dungeon creator is easy to use
    + Dungeon creator will multiply the content

    - Disappointing from the technical side
    - Linear story
    - Alignment doesn't matter
    - Rest makes the game trivial in the long run
    - Missing races and classes

    The paragraph bellow reasserts that, saying it's a good counterpoint to BG3 with less production value and worse writing but better gameplay and that it's qualities outweigh the defaults.
    Also concludes that with support from the community, could become the NWN of it's generation.

    Old old news, but how the fuck did half-elf beat out half-orc as the last race? 5 races and now 3 of them are just amounts of elfiness.

    I think that the graphics are a bit over the top. Mainly the spell effects. Firebolt is IMO too flashy for a mere cantrip.

    Half orc = brainlet race product of rape.

    Why you care? You will never play PF:WoTR.

    Yes, I'll never play it even though I backed it through the 'Dex. I just like giving money for games I hate.

    Half elves aren't brainlets. That is the difference.

    Why? You hate epic stuff. Why give money to a group making an game where you are leading a crusade against demon invaders to take out a large city back on chapter 2?

    I was waiting for someone here to lose his shit over her. I didn't expect it to happen before the release though.

    Plus there is a potential reason for it to make sense as humanity are survivors in this settining from another world so it's not hard to believe the survivors went for a melting pot culture when they got jumbled around on another planet.

    I mean it’s like there’s a certain DM whose mom makes him put a Mennonite in every campaign. You might like the DM but you still roll your eyes.

    I rely on Infinitron to keep me up-to-date on all my gaming information. If I’m behind the curve it means he’s been slacking.

    An Infinitron is never late, nor is he early. He posts precisely when he means to.

    I don't know if it will have a release day sale, but there are already several good class mods on Nexus. And one that allows variant (better) human rules.
