Risky. I'll put up with TB if it's a series I'm already invested in or otherwise have a reason to be specifically interested, but if it's something that might've caught my attention and was 50/50 as to whether or not to buy it would push the consensus towards not interested. Maybe if I was coming from a D&D background I might have a different opinion.

I have much the same view even though I do come from a D&D background. I don't hate TB, but when they are combat-heavy in content I find them difficult to like. For me, BG3 would have to be a step-up in all other aspects of play from D:OS to be worth slogging through that sort of TB-combat.
