Let’s all take a break from arguing over random encounters, long resting, and the shove mechanic to appreciate this video of Astarion.

That was a fun April Fools’ joke. His voice actor is a good sport!😊

ha! Only confirmes I am not Larian's intended audience as I sit in confusion thinking: Is it a joke? Reference? Why is Astarion, a medieval fantasy vampire somewhat aware of social media? It's not like Archer, who thanks to being set in modern world can do in character Q&A without breaking the fabric of reality. Wouldn't it at least make more sense, if the skit pretended that Astarion is a digital actor playing an Astarion (like in Who Framed Roger Rabbit) then weird in camp thingy?

It was just meant to be an April Fool’s joke. Though he does admit he doesn’t know what Like or Subscribe mean lol.

Exactly like I feel.

The worst is that our in-game evil character Astarion is not far away from this joke.

Yea, unfortunately I'm very much not the target audience/humour style for this kind of thing. I'm kind of tired of the constant jokes/sass with everything they do, but I know it's popular, so that's fair.

To be fair, the fact that we're posting on a forum in 2022 pretty much means we're likely not the main target customers of any mainstream game lol.

I'll admit 'Only Fangs' is actually a decent enough pun but this is about as obvious a case of preaching to the choir as you could get. I suppose on the one hand it's sort of funny if you like that kind of thing but on the other it leaves me a little bemused why you would choose to associate a BG/D&D game with OnlyFans even for an April fools?

TBH I’m not surprised. Larian has always been thirsty. Go look up the cover for Divine Divinity.



Feel free to steal my profile pic if you feel the same way. Let's show some solidarity.

I took it as a funny April Fool's joke. Something unrelated to the game. Even better that they got the voice actor to do it.

My opinion is that if you want a deeply evil character with no good side, Astarion isn't the dude for you. He's chaotic and definitely not good aligned but somewhere in D&D rules they took out the standard alignment chart anyways. They may give him a redemption style arc or he could go ala Bishop from Neverwinter Nights 2 (I am still not over that one!). We will find out.

As for not being the target audience, that's ok. You can still have a product or go to a store that's not marketed for you. Also your choice to not play the game when it comes out. I'm excited but I completely understand it isn't everyone's style.

Hahaha! But I used forum for a first time only couple years ago - first Obsidian's, now Larian's. I was surprised how civilized they are. Maybe all the riffraff moved on.

Fuck off. My disability is not your insult. If you've got something to say about the issue at hand, find something to actually say about it and leave us disabled folks out of your insults.

The Obsidian forums (especially the POE boards) had some of the most knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly people I've ever met on the internet. Really great place.

Oh, yeah! I totally agree. The people from there helped me a lot when I needed to buy bikes for my entire family. We cycle a lot, especially in our free time as it helps us to stay fit and also to discover new places which can't be reached by car. However, sometimes we are very exhausted after long rides, so we do some cycling yoga poses which help us to relax and forget about muscle pain. To be honest, I never thought that I will do yoga in my life.
