you get really high dex and:
- bare minimum PER for the feats you want
- 3 PER and grab Versatility, and MAX DEX

the Tommy is pure garbage, the devs hate purple guns

I've come to the conclusion that the way infinity engine handled graphics was in fact superior to modern isometric 3D. I know it's not excactly a revolutionary take, but I sure would love seeing something like the IE in crpgs again. It forces level design to be clean and crisp from the angle it's presented from and the non-HD 2D characters leave enough room for imagination to work off of. Big creatures were "3D" though.

I wanna see more games that look like Underrail and Brigador... that Fallout 1-2, Diablo 1-2, Starcraft 1, AoE2, Nox, BG 1-2, etc, look is just so damn appealing to me. PoE looked really good, but I run into the same issue as Disco Elysium... Those games look good, but not THAT good. I can run Dark Souls 3 with mid settings and have no issues even with multiplayer, ffs. As convenient as it might be to use Unity, there's no substitute to devs rolling their own engine efficiency-wise.
I'm probably in the minority but I think NWN 1 graphics are max soul/comfy.
How do you know it doesn't look like the model? Your model is like a 64 pixel sprite, you can't see its face.
The animations are horrible however. It's as if everyone was intentionally taking the piss.

You can still tell what kind of a hairstyle your character has.
I actually think they're rather good and dynamic for an old ass 3D game.

Where does the Western Role Playing game get it's inspiration from? Dungeons and Dragons, western literature, classic dice games. It took western literature and tabletop gaming of a past era and turned it into a new medium, the Role-Playing game.

Where do Jarpigs get their influence from? No games or literature from Japanese culture or history. Their settings are entirely influenced by the western computer role-playing games. Most of the time, they do not even have Japanese settings, but western ones with ridiculous hairstyles and costumes that destroy immersion make you want to stop playing that bullshit. When it comes to the game itself, the vast majority of Jarpigs are nothing like the traditional Role-Playing game, but simply action games with statistics.

Truly, there is no such thing as a "WRPG" It should just be called an "RPG" as the west created the Role-Playing game genre and is the only region of the world which makes true Role-Playing games. On the other hand, there is no such thing as a "JRPG" either, just "Jarpigs," a grotesque and barbaric frankenstein imitation of Role-Playing games common in the west, truly deserving of such a disgusting name.

You know why. The industry has been taken over by cultural marxists.
>le based & redpilled JRPG uwu weebs
Remember that there is no bigger myth than that.

The JRPG gaming scene is notoriously cucked.

First off, you always see users with little girl anime avatars (JRPG players) use pronouns and tranny flags.

The indie gamedev community that is heavily influenced by JRPGs reeks of sʘy. Their games are also uncreative copycats.

Do you know who else loves JRPGs? Resetera users.

Let's get this straight. When you see the average JRPG "fan" with a little girl avatar, the odds are he/xe is not very based compared to the traditional RPG enjoyer.
What's a WRPG? I believe you mean RPG.

I'm going to have to wait for years, aren't I?
How much you waited for other larian games? Just double that time.
None really. They were all already out before I even took a serious look at them. I've only recently taken up single player games again since early PS3 era. It'll come out eventually, but I kinda miss the bioware-esque character interaction that this game offers.
alignments made sense for outsiders whose very being was tied to the cosmological good/evil and lawful/chaotic axiom, and the select minority of mortals that bound themselves to that axis like druids and paladins. giving everyone an alignment never worked and was always a mistake of the series.

Only RPGs with the best storytelling ITT. Doesn't matter what kind or where it's from, just has to have a truly great story.

Matsuno is an idiot, throughout the years he's constantly flip-flopped what is or isn't canon. I don't know how many years of mental gymnastics he had to perform to somehow come out and tell people that 'Ovelia wasn't meant to be dead'. Then what the fuck is that scene supposed to be?
The point is that Delita doesn't trust his own wife, he's a completely broken man even though he's king.
Yeah, I ignore that. It's more tragic if she dies.
... did you play the game and understand the story? Delita's goal was to become king, but he's a commoner. Why the fuck would he kill Ovelia? The only way he could ascend to the throne was to marry her, he needed her alive.
People are astoundingly stupid. No wonder they thought Ramza died despite him appearing alive right in front of their faces.

How do you do level scaling right in an RPG?
57 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
You make enemies have set levels per area until a turning point in the story causes all said levels to be around the same high number. Just like how Kingdom Hearts does it.

Because they're supposed to be fictional characters? Without some sort of backstory and cuhrayzee anime gimmick, they'd be no different from IRL e-thots.
You don't.
You don't, focus on tuning content and exp gain instead.

I need your help, anon. Looking for a mod that unfucks leveling sensibly. Preferably just reverts the attribute bonus system to the way it worked in Morrowind with uncapped/up to +5 attribute bonus increases with each level. And something that gets rid of the aggressive (and unnecessary) enemy scaling.
Not looking for any extra bonuses or retaining unused bonuses between level ups. I just want it the closest to Morrowind I can get on Todd's Green Earth.

If you want a mod that will increase your attributes as you use the relevant skill, https://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/49173
If you want a mod that will carry over any unspent bonuses to future levels so you aren't tempted to minmax, https://www.nexusmods.com/oblivion/mods/49385

They aren't compatible, so pick one or the other. And there are a lot of enemy/loot rescaling mods, it really depends what you're after.
Haven't played modded Oblivion in over a decade but I recall Oscuros Oblivion Overhaul and Francesco's items and creatures scaling mod to be the two most popular level scaling fix mods
Francesco's is the truest to vanilla where there is still some scaling but with caps that are reasonable and no more bandits wearing deadric armor.
Oscuros is more like Morrowind with a completely static world where there are high and low leveled monsters in around the world.
Thank you for that, not OP but more leveling mods are always nice for this game.

No, there aren't. There are definitely dozens of leveling mods, but all of them fall in the categories I laid out there. None of them do the exact thing I'm looking for. You're not reading what I'm writing and just assuming that I just want any old leveling fix. I could find that and fuck with that myself. I'm looking for very specifically one that brings the attribute progression in line with how Morrowind worked. And all the recommendations here are not that. And all of the mods I've found on my own are not that.
These are both ones I've found that, while attempting to rectify the leveling issues in their own way, both don't do what I'm looking for. Automatic Attributes goes way too far in changing how Attributes are leveled entirely and Attribute Progression Redesign doesn't do enough in just carrying over unused attribute bonuses between levels.
Fruitless. I'm actually dumbfounded that with all the Morrowind love and all the mixed feelings on Oblivion that no one's done this yet. Of course, to get the full Morrowind-type experience you'd need to pair it with one of the scaling-fix/removal mods out there, but it seemed like it was too obvious to not have been done yet.
Thanks, found that earlier. Seems like the most comprehensive attempt to do away with scaling at least.

Battlechasers Nightwar.

One of the better Western-style turn-based RPGs out there.
Your "real tomboy" has no boyish traits at all.
I loved the mana system in that game, it felt great to balance resources and rewarded both using your haymakers but also chipping in with basic attacks for setup.

Do you know of any others like it?
If I wanted a girl with boyish traits I'd just fuck a dude. Let her be scruffy but cute, goddamn.
literally anything
