I like the idea of it but for Divinity OS2 at least, I felt like it fell rather flat as the stories in that one were pretty mediocre. I did like Ifan's origin story but I think it had more to do with the brooding anti-hero vibe than the actual narrative.
Hopefully they're bringing their a-game for BG3 and improving their Origin stories because it's pretty cool idea (and nice that you don't have to)
