Hi All Again,

Well I hope this topic is not controversial, I'm not hoping to change anything in the game, but i thought since some were interested, i thought i should make this post and see what great titles should Divinity 2 have instead of . . . well . . . Divinity ! which was a bit unrelated to the plot.

I know that it was not the developers fault, I think one of the moderators cleared that up. I thought this would be offtopic, but then again I realized that is still not too late for the developers to take this as a feedback and use it on their upcoming sequel.

Now to start off, I think that the game title should have been: "Ego Draconis", I think that the "Divinity 2" part should have been cut off, and that the game should have been like:

Ego Draconis: Flames of Vengence
Ego Draconis: Dragon Knight Saga

and Maybe in the Future:

Ego Draconis 2

so what do you think should have been the Title, or what do you think it should be their next title (the sequel to Divinity 2 - spoilers:seeing how D2 never truly ended) ?

Larian intended the title of the first game to be "Divinity: Sword of Lies" so "Divinity 2" fits well.

I like the sound of "Divinity 3: the Battle for Rivellon"

I dunno . . . i rather prefered had something that could truly express the content. for instance, the word "divinity" is completely irrelevant to both the story and content, but the word "Ego Draconis" was much better, if they only cut out the "Divinity" part, it would be great.

I mean the game would be called "I, of the Dragons" series. that would be something. but "sword of Lies" there were alot of lies in the game . . . but a specific sword related to the main plot ? no there wasnt any. you get what I mean ? I think there should be a title that is related to the games content, not just sound cool ! for example, Dragon Age, had alot of dragons in it, and the final boss was a dragon, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, keeps talking about the elder scrolls, and oblivion gates. now imagine "Divinity" there was nothing divine in the game, of course except the divine himself (which was suppose to be the god of the game) and he barely was introduced in the game at all. you get where im going with this ?

"Pathetic" means for example two different things in Germnan & English language ...

He spoke about Divine Divinity, the first game of the serie. Those that played it know how the so-called sword is important in the main plot smile

What about Damian? He's the main "Divinity" throught the storyline, even if his girlfriend was DKS's star.

It could have been names after Zandalor also.

Old Man's Tales? grin

... no, really, he isn't the best character all over the games. If he was part of Divine Divinity, I would far prefer Bellegar.

Sounds a bit cheap tbh. This title is also too long (4 words) in my opinion). Barely better than Divine Divinity.

Divinity 3 : Bellegar is sexy

Only 3 words now!

Old Man's Tales? \:-D

Bellegar is awesome! If he was also in DD, his awesomeness would be tripled... But he's still my favourite character from the series. He's just the most rememberable one, and also very, incredibly funny (especially in that prostitute house of Madame I-forgot-her-name, if you read the book... He was epic xD)

It's also great how he is a bit of stalker. Seriously, he's the greatest character in the whole series! I never met anyone like this in any kind of book or game, so he's also unique.

There's NO WAY Larian will do Divinity 3 without Bellegar. Zandalor, even if boring, will also be in... But I also like him, even if he's a bit dull. But sincerely, I'd LOVE if in D3 Bellegar was the mentor, not Zandalor. Can you even imagine the awesomeness of Bellegar's mentoring?

Because Zandy was only good in Divine Divinity where he was Gandalf-like yet still unique with his awesome voice, and in Divinity 2 he became a complete Dumbledore. He even got glasses after him!

Also, since Maxos dissapeared so mysteriously yet didn't die, I wouldn't be very surprised if in D3 we played as Maxos who lost all his memory and strenght - would make sense, considering what Patriarch said! After 1000 years of not being anywhere in Rivellon, no one would recognize him, (especially since he lost all his power - no one would expect such a weakling to be most powerful wizard once!) he also was immortal and could probably very easily look like a young man thanks to his magic... *snort* *snort*

Bellegar could be the only one that knows (he is undoubtely more powerful than Zandalor), and he could mentor us, and then near the ending spoil the truth. Would be awesome I think!

Makes sense and I bet it will happen or is even already planned - this would make a nice turn of events and surprise for the player!

Bellegar's mentoring? then it should be called Divinity III: Save my Playground delight

(wasn't that note in Broken Valley telling Bellegar is the hunter's brother-in-law, I wouldn't even hesitate to bet Maxos turned mad and became our favourite wizard ^^)

Divinity 3: The Tales of a Crazy Old Man

Turns out that Divinity is set in our world. Rivellon is actually in the imagination of Zandalor whose real name is Zander which is of Slavic origin. Zander is in a hospital being treated by doctors, the doctor who takes a good amount of interest in Zander is a man called Damien. Zander also has a childhood friend called Lucian who is from Turkey.

In Divinity 4: The One Life and Accession of the Blood of The Divine, Zander regains his sanity half way through the game just as the player is about to kill Damien and turns off the game screen which brings up the credits.

However, Zander then becomes a game's developer and Larian studios creates Divinity 5: The Last One which shows Zander creating the conclusion to the Divinity story via a game. So you start the game and play as a modern day person who then starts Divinity 5. Included is also books ingame that are written by Zander telling the story of Divine Divinity to Divinity 4. They are 100 pages each.

xD

Hunter's brother-in-law? Didn't saw that note! What hunter's? Where can I find that note?

And there is one flaw with Maxos=Bellegar... Maxos was a Dragon Knight, and Bellegar doesn't have "Blood of Uroboros!" in him.

Project D is also supposed to have a Dragon Knight... Which would make sense, if it was Maxos who lost his memories and power!

The hunter in the Broken Valley village, the one you can mouthshut by bringing him a demon's nail. I guess that note is somewhere nearby in the inn. Actually, it's the list of his hunting trophy, if I remember well he's complaining about his brother-in-law ("beau-frère" in French) Bellegar that summons all kinds of creatures.

If this was published by a large US studio it would have probably been called "Dragon Blood: Ascension." or something else ridiculously unrelated. Then they would add a small in-game cookie-- word dropping "ascension" or "dragon blood" to make it seem like it was all by design.

And the sequel would be... Divine Rhodes: The undiscovered lands. To be marketed as adolescent porn, with the parental filter defaulted to high, but easily disabled. It makes headlines like GTA and sells a bazillion copies to the delight of media and outrage of parents everywhere. The developer denies intentionally making the feature accessible and sleazily pockets a hefty profit. Mind you, only in the USA; and it could only be concocted by a profiteering band of marketing execs and upper management.

-----

And for a more serious title: Divinity III
(no qualifiers needed-- its that damn good).

EDIT: Changed title suggestion to be more tactful

For a second, I misread your post and thought it said:

Divinity 3: <anything>'s New Hope
Divinity 3: <anything> Strikes Back
Divinity 3: Return of the <anything>

lol

of course that would have to be divinity 4, 5, 6... so we're not quite there yet

It's a bit different actually: Bellegar plays tricks with Robin's dead brother-in-law, but he isn't the brother-in-law himself. smile

Here's the note in full:

[color:#33CC00]My Hunting Records by Brave Sir Robin

Three hundred and sixty nine Goblins, and counting[/color]
I will eventually blot out those nasty blemishes on our once-fine lands. Richard pays superbly for the hearts, that’s for sure.

Nineteen Rabbits
I recently heard a whisper about a ‘Killer Rabbit’. What nonsense!

One Giant Black Boar
What a feat that was! No one can match it. I am the unrivalled, most victorious hunter in Broken Valley. I hear the gasps from all that visit the Black Boar tavern and admire the head of the deadly beast.

Fifty-six Undead
In the ground, out of it again, in the ground, out of it again... Annoying things! Fifty six kills and it was my dead brother-in-law again each and every time. Bloody Bellegar and his bloody jokes!


I am in blood
Stepp'd in so far, that, should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go o'er.

But Bellegar wasn't in the first game.

Not that I know of.

Now that is a title I like !

Me, I'd like to see Rhode + the Dragon Knight forced to form a group - I could imagine lots of banter between both, especially regarding their history ...

It would be vry funny, imho both acting like in Shakespeare's "Much ado about nothing" ! wink
