      @gandalf.nho We have talked a lot about a horror RPG. We were within inches of doing a RPG with White Wolf and then CCP came in and purchased them. :(

      @ feargus

      i heard that you were only doing two handed spears ATM. have you considered having two types of spears, longer two handed ones (or regular spears), and what amounts to a short spear or javelin? you didn't throw longer spears really as they were more of a reach weapon, but javelins/short spears were used very much as a weapon that could be both thrown and used with a shield for melee fighting. if you could figure out a way to implement the difference, it would be kind of cool.

      what would you have done if the initial pace had continued and you'd ended up with 24 million dollars?

      @Andron: Yep, it's mentioned somewhere on the page IIRC

    4. Creator Jack Hepburn Raine on October 10, 2012

      Think the ingame item should be dropped as its referred to as the kick starter item.

    5. Creator Andron - Robot of the Obsidian Order on October 10, 2012

      @Feargus
      You mean the price for the base game will go up after the kickstarter ends?

    6. Creator Paul D on October 10, 2012

      Good day @Obsidian
      Not many days left, it is a bit like the quiet before the storm at the moment, is the team primed for the last few day rush :-)

    7. Creator Obsidian Entertainment on October 10, 2012

      @Andron Yeah, we need to call those out. I know the one unique thing is the price at $20/$25.

    8. Creator Obsidian Entertainment on October 10, 2012

      @Eero I'll just finish the interview I'm doing right now and then I'll check them. Probably about 10 minutes or so.

    9. Creator Kabraxis on October 10, 2012

      Oh, just noticed I forgot to add $20 for shipping.

    10. Creator Andron - Robot of the Obsidian Order on October 10, 2012

      Hey Feargus! Its been a slow day.
      I have a follow-up to a question I had earlier about how unique the rewards are for Kickstarter. Are any of the benefits/rewards unique to the time window of the kickstarter project (next 6 days), whether ks or paypal? Like, you can only get such and such if you donate before the kickstarter ends?

    11. Creator gandalf.nho on October 10, 2012

      @Feargus, a curiosity, Obsidian never thinked with the idea of creating a horror RPG?

    12. Creator Trister - OO's Tormented Master Wetboy on October 10, 2012

      @ feargus

      how did i just know you'd show up when i left for a bit?

      got a couple questions if you're answering them.

    13. Creator Rivfader on October 10, 2012

      love the dungeon I hope we will find cool things down there, like ancient civilization ruins or something!

    14. Creator Eero Salonen on October 10, 2012

      @Feargus can you tell us current paypal numbers (or least pledge ammount)?

    15. Creator Obsidian Entertainment on October 10, 2012

      @Kabraxis I looked at it this morning for a bit. Looks very cool I loved the Wing Commander games.

    16. Creator ClunkyChemE - Archaeologist for the ∞ on October 10, 2012

      While you were gone I saved a bunch of money by switching to Geico. Not even lying folk.s

    17. Creator Kabraxis on October 10, 2012

      Oh, hi Feargus, great timing.
      I am pretty excited at the moment as I am a big SciFi fan (even more than Fantasy, sorry :P) and I just read about the Star Citizen crowdfunding. Did you already hear about it?
      Crowdfunding is one of the best things that happened to the game industry... in my opinion.

    18. Creator Obsidian Entertainment on October 10, 2012

      When the update comes along - please share across your Facebook groups. That really helps get the word out and it gets us Facebook likes, which mean more dungeon love.

      @OE

      Pretty good, weird issues at work but nothing insurmountable (yet)

    20. Creator Jack Hepburn Raine on October 10, 2012

      no problem we just like our info fix

      @ Feargus
      Great! So many good games are released in these days! :)

    22. Creator Sing on October 10, 2012

      @Feargus: Tired, it's late night. ;)

    23. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on October 10, 2012

      @ Kabraxis
      I've played Witcher 2 serveral times, last time in Dark-Mode, was quite fun. ;)
      On my list: XCOM, Dishonored, Torment, DivineDivinity, PES 2013,.....:)

    24. Creator Obsidian Entertainment on October 10, 2012

      Good to hear. Apologies on the late update, we had a lot of stuff to talk about - and the list of all the reward tiers is crazy long to make it's correct.

    25. Creator ClunkyChemE - Archaeologist for the ∞ on October 10, 2012

      Hello Feargus. We're doing well.

    26. Creator Jack Hepburn Raine on October 10, 2012

      @feargus great we all just waiting patiently for more news as we cant get enough :-)

    27. Creator gandalf.nho on October 10, 2012

    29. Creator SisterGoldring OOE WereSheep Exile on October 10, 2012

      Hiya Feargus - how's things.

    30. Creator Obsidian Entertainment on October 10, 2012

      How is everyone doing?

    31. Creator Obsidian Entertainment on October 10, 2012

      Update is coming in just a bit.

    32. Creator Jack Hepburn Raine on October 10, 2012

      Not sure what people think but a nice add on might be a printed version of the Novella signed by Chris Avellone.

    33. Creator Kabraxis on October 10, 2012

      @Lord: Right? Playing Witcher 2 right now, want to play Planescape: Torment and Dishonored next... but also Mass Effect 3 and Deus Ex 3. Time? Nope.

    34. Creator Kabraxis on October 10, 2012

      Oh, holy cow, the Star Citizien (by Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts) trailer is amazing.
      Crowdfunding is the new Steam Christmas Sale.

    35. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on October 10, 2012

      @ Bruce
      I could need some, too.....but time would be the first choice..... ;)

    36. Creator azarhal,Weresheep Keeper of Truth of ∞ on October 10, 2012

      @ Voror

      Buying them now on GOG doesn't affect the version, you can just wait before downloading them (or re-download them later). Gog will put a little "new" on your games when they have a new version as well.

    37. Creator Jack Hepburn Raine on October 10, 2012

      maybe fire alarm really pushed update back :-( oh by the way Feargus still no mention of ingame pet on front page, unless im missing it.

    38. Creator BruceP - Chameleon Prime on October 10, 2012

      @DocDoom,
      Nooooooooooo!

      (i was wondering if someone would say that)

    39. Creator ☆ dlux ☆ on October 10, 2012

      xcom is supposed to be a good game as it seems.

    40. Creator BruceP - Chameleon Prime on October 10, 2012

      Hola, LC. You need time, I need pie.

    41. Creator DocDoomII on October 10, 2012

      The pie is a lie.

    42. Creator LordCrash - OD | OOoE | WoOS on October 10, 2012

      Hello everybody! :)
      It's horrifying.....I'm playing XCOM (couldn't resist), bought Divinty Anthology (great box set) and still wait for Dishonored.....I need MORE time.... :/

    43. Creator Voror,Exiled Judge of the Obsidian Order on October 10, 2012

      In regards to the Divinity deal, would it be best to wait till tomorrow then for when they've hopefully managed to update the games, or would buying them now not really affect that sort of thing?

    44. Creator SisterGoldring OOE WereSheep Exile on October 10, 2012

      @Bootsy81 - it's a mystery.

    45. Creator SisterGoldring OOE WereSheep Exile on October 10, 2012

      @Trister - maybe someone ate his pie? See you later.

    46. Creator BruceP - Chameleon Prime on October 10, 2012

      @Trister,
      I KNEW you stole it!!!

    47. Creator Bootsy81 The Orders High Priest of Funk on October 10, 2012

      @SGR It could also just be that MCA hit the ( key instead of the ) key. They're right next to each other.... ;)

    48. Creator Calvin on October 10, 2012

      I am the dark overlords.

    49. Creator Voror,Exiled Judge of the Obsidian Order on October 10, 2012

      @Bryy

      Exactly, it's a lot more complicated. What is written has to be able to work within the mechanics of the game world created or else it may end up scrapped. I've actually read of levels or concepts that were scrapped for such reasons. Some were quite cool visually, but they just couldn't make it work within the game.

    50. Creator Trister - OO's Tormented Master Wetboy on October 10, 2012

      @ bruce @ SGR

      oh. i'm going to get a piece of pie. IRL. because i have some. :D
