It maybe should be just adjusted so it would not be so easily exploitable ...
Or implement there some maximal discount from attitude ...

The point is . . . he needs a hammer. He's out in the wilderness and can't work without one. All the gold in the world isn't going to make a hammer magically appear so he can start crafting/repairing weapons for the Tieflings to defend themselves with.

Same! On one of the dreams my PC had with them, all I saw on screen was feet! It was not very romantic. Too much clipping larian! Gosh dang it

I love the mechanic also. And it gives extra incentive to do some side questing and find unusual magical loot. It so rare for a game to put loot you have collected at risk.
I don't get all the Gale hate . . . I like the guy, he didn't make the best decisions but he's paying for it now and I feel sorry for him and want to help. And sure Gale has an over inflated opinion of himself, but from what I can tell, so do most of us posting on this forum! smile

Dude the dice rolling algorithm this game is currently using is a dumpster fire! It is a big deal breaker for me if it is not addressed by release. My NPC’s and I rarely roll above 8 and the monsters hardly ever roll below 12! I’ve already rolled more 1’s in the week and a half I’ve been playing this game than I have in real life ...and I’ve been playing since 1980! If I owned real world die that rolled this badly I would melt them down and make a coaster outta them! This is unacceptable!

I would start with Shadow Heart. Having 13 strenght and 9 on Dexterity makes no sense. It would be way better if she has 12 strenght and 10 dexterity to avoid the dexterity penalty. And considering that she is not going to be a melee fighter, it would be better if she has higher dexterity. That way she could use a ranged weapon more effectibly.

Anyway, it doesn't seem as if we are going to have the chance to change that.



Shadowheart can have the exact same stats and a 10 Dex with point buy. She and Astarion are just made intentionally shitty, with a +1 in both of their dump stats.

She'd be fine in melee with a 14 starting Strength. Its the -1 to AC, Initiative, and more importantly Dex saves that's an issue. Mine spent a lot of time on her ass thanks to ice patches.

In EA Gale requires to be "fed" TWICE and you can easily give him the Zhent orb (the one with the beholder) and Selune's tears (IIRC, it's an amulet you find in the Shattered Temple). With the orb giving it to gale is the best thing you can do, while the amulet is not so great, so it's just a small loss.

Also: I found a bug with Staff of the Crones. If Gale has it in hand and you feed it to him he reacts saying the artefact was very powerful and able to keep him satisfied for a long time, yet the artefact is NOT consumed and you can keep feeding hi that way.

EDIT: Only feed Gale when he absolutely asks for it. Don't just give him stuff obviously!

I think it’s a neat feature. I like that unlocking powers by dreams is very Baldur’s Gate. I’m interested in seeing what the ramifications for accepting or denying the dreams are.

This is why I wish it could have been done in a different manner. I like the idea of it but revenge is more seductive to me than the implied sexual attraction to someone. Going to be really mad if denying the dreams locks me out of power based on this.


I guess you could roleplay that your character is just going along with the seduction attempt in order to unlock power.

I actually would like if the choice is to submit to the entity for power or deny it to avoid corruption but gain no power. I think that is a more interesting choice than choose A for power 1 or B for power 2.

True that, they could pop some questions in creator but I guess that is more money to burn after all, sexual attraction is easier to manage.
I guess there will be ways, Omeluum is one for now with repulsor power.

I like this idea. Though I would also say we should be able to select a specific animal we want the first time we take Beastmaster or Beast Tamer so we can have the animal companion we want most out the gate.

Keep the ability to re-summon them, though. Maybe we can have a little stable at camp where we can see our pets and pick which ones we can summon in the field.

you turn into a Mind-Slayer of course.


I’m pretty sure that isn’t it. The tadpole isn’t sending the dreams, the tadpole is in stasis. It’s connected to the power, but isn’t the cause. If whomever tampered with the tadpole wanted you to become a mindflayer they could just activate the tadpole. I’m pretty sure that The Dead Three (The Absolute) is sending you the dreams, and they have plans for you to do something with your powers, likely involving Kelemvor or Shar or both.


Bhaal catfishing us. He has truly hit rock bottom.

Yes and no, from rp perspective this has no sense. You would never give willingly money to the stranger. Everyone rather try to lower cost of the items than pay extra. Doing some favor is more acceptable for altruistic characters.

I don't know why I've got Venture Bros. on the brain, but this reminds me so much of when Dr. Orpheus astral projects to talk with his ex-wife, who of course is in media flagrante during the visit.
Yeah, vague romance is pretty paltry when you could be someone's unhealthy obsession

We get a tiny taste of the seasonal thing in elven eye colors. It's a nice touch.

I think we should have a whole game about elves and just elves. All the different varieties! All the lore! Trips to the Feywild, Evermeet, Myth Drannor, Evereska!

Aaaand probably no one would buy it. sigh


I don't think so! It's never been done before, has it? If done right, it can make for a great game smile The closest thing I can think of is Kingdoms of Amalur, it is a little bit of a niche and unknown game but those who know it seem to love it.
