Ceolfrith, I just couldn't agree more!
I also think RTwP was unique, was very Bardurish and was a Great way to adjust D&D rules for video games.
I am only afraid that Larian will not be willing to change the course they had allready chosen and invest in it.
Wchich they make something like Obsidian made with Deadfire, to create a different combat aproach later on.
