    The existence of Succubi demons is not really something certain, to be sure. But whether they are real or not, the point is that the legend of them, in real life, already included that element. The reason for it is rather interesting too! Demons, being immaterial beings, don't really have any need or desire to have sex. In fact, given how much they hate us, the whole thing is probably rather repulsive for them. A demon doesn't have a body, but some can create a facsimile of it, so it is not like this is intimacy for them, but it is still demeaning for them to use their abilities to imitate an animal. At any rate, while they might be capable of making facsimiles of bodies, they don't have a human, or even an animal nature. As such, they are incapable of reproduction. The point changing between succubi and incubi then is that, as a female, the demon could steal the gametes of a men to use it to impregnate a woman.

    Apparantely you aren't denying existence of demons in general, which is, well, insane enough to me. But speaking of legends - yeah, it's far more appealing approach to portray demons as some unfathomable, alien beings rather than how it was done in the setting of WotR where they're mostly quite human-like. What's more, even any fourth-wall breaking jokes and agenda pushing aside, the "base line" of it is some kind of heavily "the usual" biblical influenced fantasy world but now which had been through some seeeerious woke revision with all that misogynistic hell and other hilarious/sad shit.

    Indoctrination only works on the weak-minded, otherwise it's just an annoyance, like a preacher preaching loudly and incessantly on the same street corner day in and day out.

    Only for a very bad definition of "weak-minded". Most people today who receive a good education are thoroughly indoctrinated into accepting materialism; either softly (that is, as what "de facto" determines how the world works) or hardly (there can be nothing that is not described by physics).

    In the end it's not the furies or plot holes that broke people, but a mention of a Cookie.

    It's a big mood whiplash to go from "hmmm I can't wait to rape more, been a while since my last good rapemurder" demons to "yaaaay, cookies :3" purple dragon baby.

    Maybe just don't click the options. Are you so gay you cannot not click a gay flirting option? I get some of the InYourFace garbage of early act1 is annoying (especially the cutscene display of lesbo affection between a giant half orcess and her human partner) but if you can't refrain from clicking the obvious gay lines or refuse to click lines to violently rebuke characters who flirt with you when you do not want to, you can only blame yourself. I you tell characters to fuck off, you'll never hear about it again. It's a good thing to do if you want to avoid cringe romances as well. Would be a good lesson for real life too, or maybe you'll end up in the columns of cosmo one day writing 'I have a gaping asshole and I realize now it was rape, I didn't say no but I was under his influence' #metoo

    While you're in the Abyss you can choose to fight in the Arena. (I'm assuming this thread foregoes any sort of spoilers)

    The champion of the Arena is an Incubus. In order to place a Fatigued debuff on him, you need to search low and high for a harem of succubae to tire him out.

    This feels, on one hand, a quest designed by someone with a normal mind.



    * * *


    And then you go onto the Owlcat latest stream, and you hear the Paizo marketing faggot say they "wanted to make the game accessible for anyone that had any preferences in genders of any kind" and that "he's so happy the game sold more than anything they dished out PnP".


    * * *

    Strictly speaking, rusty's right. This is just the fanbase ruining the product. That Paizo faggot just wants to make money, right? Well... the real solution is to take out romances out of the game completely, if you ask me. And then you wouldn't have to take your dick out in front of the fox. You'd just be happy there's a bug on polymorph that gives her +4 to a bunch of stats.
    Broadly speaking, rusty's wrong. Owlcat could've refused to put romances in the game.

    Overall sad to see, in my opinion. The game without romances would've been an instant classic.

    Good for it's audience I suppose. I'm not into chicks with dicks so the game doesn't really appeal to me.

    Oh rly? Wtf is that shit in the OP? Looks like typical leftist peadophilia to me. Are you saying that's not in the game? Are you suggesting my eyes are lieing to me? Are you doing what every leftist scumbag does and trying to convince me that you disgusting scumbags aren't trying to rape kids and make them mentally ill? Fuck every single one of you scumbags. More and more people are waking up to this shit and eventually you will hang. Fuck you sick fucks.

    Drag queens still identify as men. That character is a (pre-op?) tranny.

    - There are zero characters like that
    - Okay there is one but he's actually a pansexual demiboy treblenimbus, not a queerneutral greysexual protogirl so your terminology was incorrect
    - Okay there are a few more but what about it?
    - Okay the game's cast is straight out of a san francisco parade but a REAL FAN would talk about the game

    i dunno if using 21st century descriptions of sex and gender for a high fantasy setting is all that helpful in any respect tbh (not saying there's an obviously more useful way to describe it either)

    She is a fucking serial killer with daddy issues that wants to fuck you (if your character is male) just on the cooling body of her last victim.
    Deal with it. You always could kill/snitch/exile her yourself.
    It's just a one character.
    It reminds me about people who think that Fallout 2 is chok-full of Easter eggs and jokes and doesn't have anything else.

    I need to check my Sinistrari's De Daemonialitate et Incubis et Succubis. All I clearly remember now is the description of properties of incubi seed. :M

    Or, even better, I can deal with it by simply not playing the game...

    Yeah, it has many more different types of silliness, like a teenage drug chemist, exploding toilets, etc.

    But, being serious, this is not really my point. I haven't played this game and I doubt I will; I can't really say if all the cringe in this thread spoils it or not. But I can say it shouldn't be there. My point then was arguing that using this internal logic to justify these characters makes no sense. Hey, among all those adventurers rampaging around killing monster, some are bound to be serial killers. And among those some are bound to also be nymphomaniacs. That is besides the point; by internal logic, there are bound to be spells for cleaning up after the bathroom break, but they aren't in the game since it wouldn't make sense from the perspective of the designer to waste time with something like this.

    No idea what that is, but the whole point of the issue was that there is no such thing as "incubi seed".

    Hello, Grunker.

    Not at all. I still cling to sanity and I will never accept obviously false statements as true: like, say "intelligence can be reduced to an algorithm." or "Gurps 4e's character point design is an improvement upon the previous versions".

    He drank a magical potion to be permanently changed into a female body. For all intents and purposes she should now, biologically, be completely female. Something that magic was needed for and, in my own personal opinion, is not possible with actual trans people.

    Still, it's a technically and not the author's intent behind that character. But it's still an important technically for me none the less.
