I couldn't agree more. I never understood why modern games use TV personalities / actors for voice overs. It seems to me that the radio actors guild would be much more suited to furnishing individuals that have to rely _solely _ on their voice- not people who have, out of the necessity of the medium, relied on physical and visual cues to augment spoken delivery. That, and I think that using RAG members would probably be a lot cheaper :P
Anyway, here here to correct pronunciation and non-english accents!
So how do I add the soundtrack CD to my $250US reward? Is it enough to simply up the pledge by $20US?
Furthermore, is this the only way to get the soundtrack or is it already included somewhere else?
I Agree upon the physical strategy guide(and almanac) being an option to purchase as well.
How about an add-on pledge to have your collector's book signed?
I'd back for a physical strategy guide, too... digital ones just replicate what I can find on gamefaqs or elsewhere so they aren't that interesting, but a good physical copy of the strat guide (and almanac) would definitely make me bump my pledge.
I want a physical strategy guide. One more chance to do it. I have to consider the soundtrack tomorrow.
@willie she is a dwarf she is also ont he painting along with the other 4 companions.
Lots of celtic-sounding names there. For the love of all that's holy, I hope the voice actors are given the correct pronunciations. I still twitch after The "Tuatha" fiasco from Kingdoms of Amalur. Nails across a blackboard, so it is.
maybe a 3.8 mil goal :) or even 4.0 mil
@ Tech and Tedd
Possibly a source of conflict for the expansion?
i was gonna write something long but everyone's pretty much echoed my sentiment that this is a fantastic update and can't wait to load the ustream for some obsidian DnD while i also play... granted its going to be unhallowed metropolis/necropolis... but still fun =)
tech that's why I was wondering if they would include a small cluture the struggle between science and faith in a predominantly religious world, would make the store so much deeper for me and maybe explain the firearms
I'd have loved to see a struggle with science though. Dunno if they may plan it in a future game. Time will tell :).
They said technology isn't going to be in except for small firearms like muskets and such. Nothing super fancy like science unfortunately.
will there be a a sort of technical culture that relies more on science and technology? I think that would be cool, sort of the non believers maybe
Your approach of life & death is absolutely not old school. IMO, this is good.
I Hate D&D way of life and death (that is a metagame approach rather than a storyteller one) and this silly idea that a pantheon is a supermarket where you pick your powers.
Great update. Still crossing fingers for 3.5m and 2-3 additional lvls ;P
Another great update, thank you for more of a window into the lore.
ET3D: Perma-death is disabled on normal mode.
I hope that the game will be designed such that death is easily avoided. I'm not a hardcore player, and I don't want to feel like I have to repeatedly reload battles just to make sure I don't lose people.
Unfortunately almost every update of this game makes it feel like it's not a game for me. I still trust that it will have a good story, I just don't trust that I'll enjoy playing it that much, because it feels like it will be too much of a chore.
Im in the same boat Sylrissa :) it will be well spend though!
Great update 24 as usual Josh and crew. Just one thing, please add some dwarven (I really love dwarves) and more "exotic" companions as well (ala Torment), some more "out there" characters. I would really appreciate that. The characters so far seem very intriguing, but I would sorely miss not having a dwarf (female even) companion or even a more exotic race or two companions (instead of just humans and elves). Other than that, again I wish to commend you guys on an awesome KS campaign (you really put a massive amount of effort into this) and wish us all the best in reaching that second city!
If anyone was going to bring back the genre of cRPG, it would be you Obsidian, i've never felt so safe putting faith in a company as i have with you all. My mind is blown and you havent even begun yet
well there goes 310$
It is good to have permanent death. Makes you think about what you do.
Cheers Björn, had to update my pladge manually to 280$ then cause I don't think it would have been shipping otherwise :D ( Or I gotta pick up the package personally... :) )
feedback on ideas on life and death in PE: sounds great. looking forward to how you implement it in practice.
Whoops. Too many project pages open at once. Fail.
Geert, I do believe it is added to the pledge amount. So a total would be 280$ for the 250$ level.
Help computer. Start all the downloadin'! :)
This may have been written somewhere ( cant find it specifically :'( ), but if one pledges for a Physical Tier that needs International Shipping added, do you add that amount as well on the pledged amount ( example 250$ + shipping is having you pledge 280$ ) Or is the shipping to be payed at the end as well?
So...how do I add-on the CD?
Same thing on the world-building scale. You get your beleifs, architecture and your cultural developments based on past religions and so on. And there will always be those who await the gods' return and preach their ideas to "pass the time". First Dragonlance books are a good example of this.
So, basically, dead gods will change some plot points and factions, but won't affect the world building itself.
The end draws near!
@Everyone who hasn't liked Obsidian on Facebook, yet: Please consider liking Obsidian on Facebook to "deepen" the Überdungeon! Remember: 20K likes = 1 level more!
BTW I've always wanted a game like this. I've thought for a long time that my only chance to play it would be to make it myself. I guess I still will, but thanks all the same :D
Hey everyone! Answering some questions about adding-on the Physical Soundtrack Add-on...
If you have questions about the Add-on process:
- Check out this post on how to add-on items - http://project-eternity.tumblr.com/post/33543990284/project-eternity-add-on-list
- Read the first couple paragraphs, that explains how the add-on process works
Other Physical Soundtrack questions:
- The Physical Soundtrack is an Add-on only. It is not included in any tier.
- See above for how add-ons work.
- You must have a Physical Reward tier to get the Physical Soundtrack CD Add-on
- If you have a Digital Reward tier starting at $35 or higher, you get the Digital Download Soundtrack
Gods may have different names in different lands.
This is certainly true of Zeus/Thor and Neptune/Poseidon.
Madao: There is another option: Dead gods. They were here, they were powerful, and then they died. Clerics draw on the remnants of their infinite strength, but it's a non-renewable resource and no one knows how long their reservoirs of power will last, and some of the lesser corpse-gods have already been drained...
If something works -don't touch it. Rule number one.
In any case there are really only 3 options: No god, one god and many gods.
No god-doesn't works couse there won't be clerics and this is bad.
One god is boring. We're not waiting for Project Vatican after all.
Many gods - is the right way to go.
Easy as that.
Interesting health system, I wonder how armor comes into play, maybe with an absorption rate that redirects specific types of damage to draw from the stamina instead of from the HP?
This is actually going to make it isn't it? There are going to be two metropolises. (Metropoli? Whatever.) I can't believe this is happening. This and Wasteland 2 happening at the same time prove that there is a market for games of an older tradition where literacy and imagination was key and choices mattered beyond what bar you were filling for an ending. Thanks Obsidian!
Stamina bar is wise choise, Upgraded my pledge
For those who keep commenting on White March: A march is a frontier or border area.
First bad news for me so far, namely, no real HP management.
HP management has always been one of the things making "uninteresting" battles relevant, if you can lose all your HP every combat then you don't have to manage it.
Perfect (for me). Just curious, what about agnostic people?
Colorful pantheon of d*ckheads. The Simpsons Already Did It (and 1001 RPG as well)
I'm sorry but I have to agree with some of the above comments. While the soundtrack CD should be considered an add-on for some of the lower tiers, it should absolutely be included in the $250 and up tiers. ESPECIALLY considering that the digital soundtrack is included starting at just $35, which includes a FLAC version which would take all of a few minutes to burn to a CD.
Paganism - IS cool. I'd be very disappointed if instead of a colourfull pantheon we had just some one God-dude.
@Justin there will be a survey later
Oh, bummer, paganism again...Fantasy cliche. Boooooring!
