So who is this character? Is that a PC or the NPC that was discussed in the hidden part of an earlier post?



This is our drow waifu Minthara

Romance is great and all, you guys all always so passionate (pun intended) about it, but what about the little things, like not screwing the toothpaste lid back on? You see, it's the little things.

No entiendo el problema con el sexo veo varios mas prefiero ver escenas como los dragon age orirgin que leer todo lo que me molesta es solo con una mujer puedo hacerlo ?
No hay manera hacerlo con los companion me suena discriminatorio para los gays.
Esta bien que quieran todos mantener su vieja manera de juego pero haber no hace mal actualizarse muchos preferimos ver el juego más realista ver animaciones antes pasarla todo el dia con lectura , para mi me encanto DOS2 pero me fascino mas Baldur Gate 3 por sus escenas , más con cada NPC es molesto debes imaginar todo cuando ejemplo vienes un dia muy cansado prefiero ver mis acciones reales.

I just wish that it is not exclusively during Camp time.

Other thing is that Gale and Shadow Heart don't look too evil for me as far as we have seen.

I just watched the Romance community update. It seems that Larian do take a lot of care to implement romance as a narrative and cinematic feature.
They want players to care about the characters and impact that such relations have on the story.

But I want to suggest something that could take that impact to the next level - gameplay.
What if characters who are in love could gain a treat that would enable them to react to things that happen in the fight? Perhaps even automatically?
For example, Shadowheart could have a chance to cover the player with a shield from an attack, or the player character could immediately counterattack the monster who hurt their love interest. Rule-wise it could work based on the reaction rules similar to some spells to stay true to the DND source.

The closest I have seen to this was either the new unique skills in Tyranny, permanent buff to the stats in NWN:Mask of the Betrayer, or the friendship system in the XCOM series.
Of course, it may be seen as an imbalance, but imagine the impact such system could have on the player. We would spend 60 to 80% of our time in combat, and having romance change something about how characters behave in combat and not just in dialogue would be precious and previously unseen in RPGs.

What do you think?

I think female characters should not act like men and should have femininity.

Haber explicame que te refieres con que se ve masculino , disculpa pero yo la veo bien por su manera de ser no la veo una persona este con una pose femenina de años atrás la veo ruda y misteriosa , no creo ella se preocupa por verse como una princesa

Also by having it be a toggle, the people that want it can have it, and those that prefer not having it (I'm honestly surprised at how many I saw in this thread, thought I'd be the only one lol) can skip it.


I agree. I would appreciate this too. Since we have a system of tags, it would surely be pretty straightforward to put a little check box somewhere in Character Creation that would give your character a no-romance tag, so that you would never need to be offended by this sort of nonsense.

No seria mejor una opción puedas elegir si quieres contenido 18+ ? así los que preferimos realismo podemos ver todo tanto la aventura y sus momentos mas íntimos los otros son más de jugar de la vieja escuela se evitan tener que ver las escenas íntimas , la pregunta mia es para los quieren el sexo no se vea supongo que no se ponen en el rol de su personaje por que digo si ustedes estuvieran viviendo su vida de su personaje se enamoran jamas tendria relaciones intimas digo yo ? Larian no busca hacer un juego porno o una película si no intenta llegar que interpretemos realmente el personaje. sin tener usar primera persona que alivio , para los que se quejan del falta argumento y historia saben siguen buscando escritores para llenar complementos no ? es decir no tienen todo su personal como en Divinity.

Although Larian is creating Baldur's Gate 3, they did not create Baldur's Gate. This was originally a BioWare franchise. If anyone knows anything about BioWare is that they love doing romance. For Example, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, SWTOR and Baldur's Gate 2. As for the sex scenes in BG3 being explicit and some of you not liking that, all I can say is you don't have to romance them. That won't affect your gameplay, it never does. The only thing that does change with Romance is party banter and some of that is just hilarious, especially from BioWare. You realize how funny and nosey your companions are. I notice that BG3 has banter and I would love to see what my companions say when it comes to relationships. At the end of the day having romance in a video game is not a big deal. It always a choice, it's not forced.


Lo mejor que leido en este hilo exacto no obligan a nadie enamorase , bien dicho somos el personaje y no me digan van estar en esa situación sin conocer alguien estar con alguien todos momentos que viven se nota tendrías crear un vínculo con alguien. Es cierto Bioware hace escenas de romances son geniales por que si te enamoras del personaje tanto te gustaría vivirlo real

I know now what kinds of gamers work at Larian. The kinds who care more about fucking goblins for the lols than about the adventure itself.

I hate playing D&D with people like that, and I can guarantee I will hate this game now.

This isn't D&D. This is pre teen masturbatory soap opera trash.

This kind of cringe garbage makes me REALLY not want this game now. It keeps looking worse and worse with every update.



You really need to get over yourself. Not everything has to revolve around you. If this is something that really disturbs you then its a good thing you are only playing early access.

Note your objections and move on to a new game. There is no need to insult the developers of the game over a personal bias that you may have of certain types of players and/or playstyles. That's just rude and inconsiderate.

I, personally, like adult stuff. If it fits and does not look forced. If you do something like that, be sure that the animations fit, otherwise, leave it. Clipping and erratical movements etc. in such scenes is a no-no. Better to skip then. Get some help from FOW ;P

BUT: The game has other issues atm so i really don't get why this is something to look into. First thing would be to get a more fluid gameplay and get rid of bugs like stuck conversations or npcs you cannot take into your group anymore or even talk to.

First the basics then the polish.

I like the way this is going but PLEASE do not overdo it. It's a slim line.

Beautiful, mature content for mature audiences. Personally, I thoroughly enjoy such content it allows one to bond much more with the character he plays and the companions he chooses to have intimate relations with. It's a breath of fresh air that a company unabashedly implements such scenes. Disregarding romances/sexual interactions in games make them instantly less relatable as they disregard a massive aspect of reality and generally being human.

People were actually complaining about nudity? LOL never ceases to amaze me how people can watch beheadings, people gutted, torture and all sorts of messed up stuff, we're at the point where people even cheer for mass murderers and rapist on television shows, but the body of a human is just taking things too far? Shows you just how strange and messed up some cultures are, and by some I mean I only American (am American)

Everyone has different views on what constitutes 'acceptable'. Different cultures, social backgrounds and personal experiences leave us all with a different moral compass and outlook.

Whilst it is fine to put forward your views on what you find distasteful (within reason - we don't want hate speech here), please avoid dismissing or attacking the legitimate concerns of others.

While this is true, there are also cultures that consider butchering people based only on their sexuality as morally right. Does not mean brushing such a thing off as "well different culture", is the proper stance to take. However, i'm not dismissing other's opinions, merely criticizing my OWN country's hypocritical culture and general outlook, no one elses as we are practically the only western nation squeamish about nudity, preferring guts and gore to a nipple, despite having a monopoly on the porn industry and all or music selling sex lol

Your views on women and femininity strike me as pretty misogynistic and immature ones but that is a whole other matter...

That said: She is a female warrior wearing a heavy chain armor and is swinging a mace, so I really don't get what your problem is with her. XD

I agree. I was never a bold, muscular man. And I can only play body styles in games I see in myself. So I'm very offen pissed off by the bulky, muscular body styles that do not represent me.
In these times, it should be possible to play roles with body styles other than just clichè.
Just take a look at the protagonist in the first movie of "How to train your dragon". He looks weak, he looks unmanly, he *IS* unmanly - yet he is the ONLY ONE who sees the truth !
Those weak in body are often those strongest in mind, Stephen Hawking should be the prime example for that.

I couldn't agree with you more as I was never muscular man either I was tall and thin most of my life. So I don't get why some folks play such importance on looks or the build of a person.
