Wow and here we we're having an almost civil discussion until you discovered this topic as well and decided to grace us with your presence and superior intellect AGAIN.

Can we just all agree you won -we've all been elightened in your presence and allow you to move on to the next topic please?

Offtopic: I really wouldn't quote bestselling authors for reference on anything, BG3 characterisation even as it is right now blows the socks off those two that wrote 50 shades of grey and twilight series

I don't care.

If you believe me to be wrong present evidence. If you want to have a circlejerk do it on a non public forum. If you hear best selling Authors and think twillight and 50 shades of grey and not Douglas Adams or Tolkien, CS Lewis, Leigh Bard etc that is a you problem and not a me problem. Read more fantasy and less drivel.

Was is it you who wrote bestselling authors or was it me?
And TYVM I actually prefer other types of literature despite being a long time gamer (Marquez, Rushdie, Houellebecq etc) even at it's best fantasy literature can be very lacking with some bright exceptions.

I love Tolkien as much as the next person but to call it high literature is a bit of overstatement + his characterisation is at least mildly lacking as well in many places. If I had to pick my reference I'd go with Neil Gaiman. Which also makes me kind of doubt your references mentioned in your other hot topics.
