Where is Sir Lora? Where is Xzar and Montaron? Where is all that voice acting?

I feel like Swen turned in to Chris Nolan and Larian is making their Dark Knight.

I mean BG3 will probably be a solid game but so far it feels like a really depressing one. The only amusing part thus far for me are the goblins periodically taking a piss. Beyond that... whyyyyy ssooooo sssssssssssssssserious????? I know Minsc is eventually in the game but I am scared of what you may have turned him and his hamster in to at this point.
