Lady, you are so right, you have my respect, I am a male, and I, as well, so much, understand your point, as it works exactly the same for straight normal males: I want a cute and beautiful woman companion, whom I want to protect and have a potential romance relationship with, but now who do we have - ugly wannabe dominant aggressive ugly gith fighter and rude arrogant aggressive cleric. But, what we can do, it becomes more and more politicized and twitter-mob-approval-seeking, only few games don't go this route nowadays, and this is sad. But, there are always good old games to re-play (for example, DOSII you mentioned). You have my respect, lady, and even if you are 67, you have a fiery young heart. Cheers.

A hijack onto the topic of goodberries would be be the best thing that could happen here smile Until the panel, I actually didn't know that Life cleric + druid multiclass was so powerful and didn't think the berries would have much of a purpose in game without a hunger mechanic.

I'm going to try that class combo once Larian introduces multiclassing.

Do the Druid's Goodberries rot if you won't eat them immediately ?

I'm wondering if a Druid with a sense for business could set up a small stall in the Druid Grove, near Trader Dammon and Auntie Ethel, to sell Goodberry jam, Goodberry pies, etc. I think Gale is a good cook, so he could prepare those from the Goodberries.

That would be an excellent way to make some extra gold with the companions that you don't need in your party at the moment, instead of letting them lounge around at camp all day while the others do the hard work.
As long, of course, as the Goodberry jams and pies are balanced out with a proper cheese selection. Maybe befriend some druids, milk them in cow wildshape, etc.

Many people allready menitoned that ultimate bisexuality and the fact that nobody cares about races in matter romances with companions seems odd. :-/
So ... +1, letds hope this will be changed slightly.

Relax guys. It's just a fashion and it is already becoming boring. Just play Witcher and you'll find exactly the classic 'strong hero'/'damsel in distress' trope teenage girls are fond of.

In fact, I somewhere read some talk about including Minsc. But I don't remember whether it was datamining or just speculation. And that 'nightsong' character also looks quite nice, but she might be an enemy.

I never got where that comes from. The one damsel in distress i can think of in W2/3 is a dragon, and she gets saved by getting impaled on a tree.

I am not from the west, so I don't really care, women I have contact with are normal. Also, what a compliment you just gave to this 67 years old lady, calling her a "teenage girl", good job. And, it is not always "strong hero/damsel in distress", damsel in not always can be in distress, and strength of a hero can be first and foremost in his honor and will, not only in muscles. What you want to say, probably, is "honorable strong-willed man/beautiful caring maiden" trope, normal straight people, both women and men, are fond of.

But hey, Larian very clearly stated that they don't like normal "generic boring" White males:
https://boundingintocomics.com/2020...r-creation-option-is-a-white-human-male/
https://www.pcmag.com/news/baldurs-gate-3-players-choices-generate-the-most-boring-guy-ever
https://www.kotaku.com.au/2020/10/b...or-their-basic-arse-character-creations/

And now think how it correlates with the original post by the lady, who wants "a sexy, male like Ifan Ben-Mezd for us straight women players". Indeed.

P.S. Witcher? I played it, full game, it is good, not really get why you try to use this game as an example, as there is 2 options to romance, Yenn and Triss, and none of them is "damsel in distress", but strong sorcerers, but to be fair, you do help them, especially Triss. Didn't like the arrogance of Yenn, so said no to her, and chose Triss. Got the best ending as well, and, in every DLC. Good game but no re-play value at all, in my opinion.

Let's steer the conversation away from this sort of rhetoric, thanks.

With all the cooking utensils that we find in the game, we could get new cookings options as we bring them back to camp. Not to mention the over-abundant food items.

Various companions could take turn preparing dinner in pairs. I'm all-in for Gale and a Druid PC, who could prepare a goodberry panna cotta. Gale could transmute the cheese into milk. Or we could simply ask the Druids if we can milk their cows.

Getting to that level of intimacy with the druids ... sounds like a different mini-game altogether. Then again, we can spend quality time with Abdirak (for players who are into this kind of quality time), so why not ?

Why isn't there a proper grilled cheese sandwich for us cheese lovers? I've quit playing the game as I am disgusted with the food!!!!!!!!!"

You might not be looking hard enough. I think this game has way too much cheese, especially cheese with things like mushrooms and firewine. It's nearly limitless. I worry there's so much, the devs won't be able to remove enough of it. Though maybe I'll be surprised by patch 4.

Larian seems to love cheesy gameplay.

(Yeah, I'm sure somebody did that one someone, but I couldn't resist.)
