As I said, I'm not gonna argue a lot on the "is this writing necessary/unnecessary" me liking or disliking something won't change minds, people will see things differently. It's a game, it's fine, I don't mind Astarion being forward, I did, in fact, get the Gale weave scenes in all my games before learning they are "hard to get" (sadly I don't have any idea what did I do for them to happen). I always tried hag before goblin camp, maybe that's it?.

End of the line is just wanting to have more to do at camp than maybe resurrect someone, sometimes. Scratch does bring you a ball so you can play catch, and that was one of my favourite things at camp overall, and it's *simple*, a very very simple animation and activity, rewarding nonetheless. And despite the overall disagreements over the tiefling party, it seems most everyone who commented here so far would not mind a little bit more around camp as well, which, good! We are on the same page.

So if Larian were to make a greater distinction between characters simply having (casual) sex versus there being a romance between characters, that would go a long way towards making things more believable and immersive.


Well I'm pretty sure PC's options are still opened no matter what they decide to do at the party and that is kinda commendable.

Not everyone is "let's wait to be married" kind of person and as in real life many great romances have begun in exactly such order (and even more heartbreaks) 😉

And as in real life it's usually impossible to say which way it's gonna swing the morning after.

The classic formula of candles, wine and flowers, long talks, stolen glances, kiss on the cheek and fade to black scene before final fight is getting kinda stale...

And I for one am very happy we moved on from the age of Anomen 🤢, no offense to Gaider he also moved on to write some of my favourite characters and Ok to be honest Anomen did get a bit more bearable if romanced.

Here I'm thinking Astarion and Lae'Zel are definitely in it for the fun, Shadowheart is falling for the PC but wouldn't admit it even to herself, Wyll - well that's just wrong and Gale might just be masterfully manipulating the PC for his personal agenda (whatever that really is).

Yes I agree. That's my point, which is that many people who are critical of how romance is being handled in the game are doing so from a point of view of mixing up romance with sex. What we're seeing here in Act1 is just sex. And very casual sex at that. We will have to wait until we see the whole game to be able to comment on *romance*.
