    Really welcome news. One has to wonder though, why not just have gotten this free DLC into the actual game release? These changes really could turn many frowns upside down, but first impressions have already been made...

    My ignore list finally has one occupant after 12 years. I am the strongest supporter of free speech on here, but free speech does not mean forced listening. Have fun my friend. Hope you find a new stalking target.

    Lol, I would never look at this game, when i saw the message, well i want my 8 year olds to be able to be a dungeon master, and play the game HA.  So either he is a shit bad parent, and lets his 8 year old's know about all the adult concepts in a adult RPG, or he made this a kids game. Im going with he made it a kids game, considering the mass focus of this game is a console  release, with PC players being the test base.

    I consider the first month of a new release to be "launch".  Anyone not patient enough to wait two weeks to get news and a road map, is likely not worth playing with.

    Playing a paper game with friends of your age is way different, than playing a game, with plots of murder, sex, destruction, with the graphics to go with it. Not to mention it is a online game, and if his goal is a children game, seriously what are you doing going on a children game, where you know a bunch of kids are gonna be playing.

    Where are you getting that their goal is to produce a "children's game"?

    There is quite a bit of blood, exploding bodies, carnage, cries for help and the last gasps before dying.  

    Im not saying it is or should be rated "Mature" or Y14, but it is not rated G either.

    It actually was not that different. D&D has become this 'thing' that people think computers cannot capture. Running a module with your friends can still be done today just as it was 40 and 50 years ago.

    As someone who has not played PnP D&D since 1987, and never got into Roll D20 style virtual TT, I really get that nostalgic feeling when playing SCL with a live and skilled DM and player group.

    As do I. SCL may not be perfect or even good to some people but I have a great time with it and it will only get better. I am excited to see what it will become a year from now. I would imagine many people turned off by the state of the game now will be loving it then.

    You can redefine the word launch to fit whatever you like internally, but the vast majority of people would say that "launch" would be the time the game actually, you know.. launches.  Let's not go down that path though as it leads to that dark place of "Early Enrollment" vs "Beta" vs "Launch" from that other game.

    Besides, the KEY feature is really the Update 3 which will hopefully be mid-late Dec.  THAT update will hopefully enable the creation of really detailed campaigns.

    If they had actually launched (as in, when the game launched) with all these I think it would have been better received all around.  I really enjoyed the single player game and have now shelved it until Update 3 when I can hopefully dive in and try to create some cool campaign/modules.

    It seems like they are really going for another Baldur's gate.Yes like many i loved Baldur's gate but that was what 20 years ago?Also dungeon master gaming does nothing for me at all,simply not my cup of green tea.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    This thing is so far from Baldur's Gate that you should not even bring it up.

    Pillars of Eternity was "that game".


    This game is probably the worst of the latest batch of games to come out during the recent cRPG revival.

    It was marketed heavily as a "D&D game", and even if you consider the 5th ed rules "D&D", this game barely has anything to do with them.

    This game was a clear miss out of the gate and now the people making this thing are desperately trying to do anything to get people interested in this sub par title, that they are still selling for $40. It is about #80 on the Steam top sellers list and it has below 60% positive player reviews.


    This game might be "good" at some point, but it has a long way to go to escape the fact that it has a shallow, weak core game with little difficulty and few meaningful choices. And it is not the "D&D" game that was promised.

    Maybe worth buying on the $10 rack 6-12 months from now.

    But not before then.

    I paid $25 for it and have over 32 hours in. Money well spent and with mods coming I am even more excited for the future of this game. Not for everyone I understand but nothing is.
