What the fuck is her problem?
85 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
Jaethal didn't willingly become undead. She was living a hedonistic lifestyle dedicated to Urgathoa, because Urgathoa allowed her to fully enjoy it (elves have some weird thing where even though they live for a long ass time, they basically start losing senses or some shit like that).

Some dude who followed Pharasma (Urgathoa's main enemy) shanked Jaethal when she was living in exile for the murder of her family, and Jaethal woke up undead because Urgathoa revived her. If you follow her questline to the end, Urgathoa leads her to a way that she can regain a mortal body (that of her daughter) and continue her hedonistic lifestyle for pretty much eternity (just needing to body switch every once in a while).

Still looking into that Chaotic Evil Pathfinder playthrough.

Evil goat girl
Harrim (?)

Seems pretty weak on the martial side. Am I going to need to go heavy tank with my MC again?
can't use the good buffs
Best tanks in this game are grease and stinking cloud if something can't be tanked by it it can't be tanked by heavy armor as this shit attack touch AC.
However Harrim and Jaethal with shields, buffs and teamwork feats can tank reasonable well if you aren't insisting on using meme difficulty.

Did they improve the English translation yet? From gameplay I saw last year, the grammar and wording was painfully awkward to read. Still looked fun I guess, though.
the translation never gets better than mediocre, and is bad for about 80% of all story text, unfortunately.
The important part is that the devs are sorry they took 15 seconds longer than they said the would to release the next mission. They are sorry that they are sorry and promise to never do it again so long as you forgive them! They are also sorry that they are sorry and weill endevour to be less sorry the next time they apologise.

Can't really get excited about the newly unlocked high level areas when you have to make gear with this awful system where each item must be crafted 15 times and you can't even dupe the results, so have fun farming those traits again.

Holy fuck this guy is annoying. The first mission he's fine, however afterwards he's the most annoying thing there is. I'm only on the 4th palace. Does he get better? Because his confidant stuff are pretty good, but the moment it goes back to the main story he's the worst. I rather have Yosuke back. I'm definitely not expecting him to grow like Junpei.

Yeah, the whole Ryuji/Morgana thing in the middle of the game pisses me off because Joker could've nipped it in the bud weeks ago if he had any initiative. Joker does have an option to ask Morgana if he's okay at one point, but gets pushed back immediately and makes no effort to ask further, despite spending so much time with Morgana.
What makes the Makoto/Ann spat silly is that Ann was only mad at Makoto based on rumours about the latter knowing about Kamoshida but doing nothing. Yet Ann is painted as the victim of such rumours herself earlier in the game, but has this sudden lack of self awareness and uncritically believes similar shit herself.
I like that P5 resolves Ann/Makoto faster than Yukari/Mitsuru, but only largely because I don't think the writing in P5 would've carried the former relationship as well as P3 did the latter.
This. When people write stupid characters it's always one of these
>DURRRRRRR I so dumb lmao laugh at me haha
>Fat corrupt villain who destroys himself by being too greedy
>Character isn't supposed to be stupid, but the writer is so the character looks stupid

Ryuji on the other hand is just a kid who is stupid the way you'd expect a stupid kid to be and that's really unique because you almost never see that. I think the only other example I can think of is Chloe from LIS "omg you can turn back time you should use that power and shoot me with a gun and see what happens YOLO".
It's really crazy how the characters personalities and goals just seem to jump around flippantly. There's no real goal or plot. There's barely a looming threat and the characters have really blase reactions to being face to face with mysterious happenings when there's not an immediate threat.
That's true to a certain extent, but as I said in another post, Joker is just there, he has no influence when the other interact between themselves, so there is some level of interaction. But my point is something similar to what >>2202775 pointed out. Ann saw Shiho try commit suicide by jumping from the rooftop and end up in a coma, you'd think having gone through that she would understanding of Ryuji taking 2 minutes to drag his sorry ass to where they were after making the miraculous effort of running and jumping high with his broken leg to save their fucking lives and getting blown away by an explosion in the process, but no, she completely forgot what happened to Shiho and treated Ryuji like trash despite what he just did for them. This has nothing to do with girls having no meaningful interactions with any male that isn't the MC, they ignored a past event that was an important part of Ann's development, essentially doing what >>2203553 said, even in her SL she feels all over the place.
>but the whole talking out loud about the thieves where people can hear them and saying shit that's just stupid
I agree that for the most part they handled Ryuji well, that's why I like him, but I don't like how people only talk about him when they talk about stupidity, ignoring the fact that everyone is an idiot who does the same things.
Ryuji wasn't alone in those moments, why didn't Morgana or Ann think that it was a terrible idea to talk about PT stuff at school (Joker as a self-insert has no opinion)? Yusuke too when they change locations to the station? Because they're just as much idiots or rather, they were made to be because otherwise there would be no way for Makoto to find out their identities. Remember the very first trailer that showed the original 4 preparing for a heist at LeBlanc? That was conveniently changed so that they only start hanging out there after Makoto joins and she's the only one who benefits from this change.

Final battle with SCS + Ascension was downright insane and took me 5 hours to beat
I played a neutral char and couldn't recruit neither Balthazar nor Bodhi, Imoen got turned into Slayer and Sarevok betrayed me, so worst case scenario, but I did it eventually
never again though

all in all Throne of Bhaal is by far the worst Infinity Engine game, I'd rank it 4/10 as its basically just one terrible dungeon crawl with terrible story and gameplay (DnD goes to shit at epic levels)
even Watcher's Keep sucked, it's just 5 disjointed mini dungeons with no real overarching plot or theme, every level must have been designed by different people, its really meh on its own and downright terrible compared to Durlag's Tower or any Icewind Dale 1 or 2's dungeon
I really forgot how bad ToB really is

my feelings about SCS are mixed, at first I liked it but eventually fighting mages became tedious and annoying, if I ever use it again I'll probably not use the Smarter Mages component because its honestly kinda cheesy that every single enemy mage in the game has the perfect Anti-Party set of spells and buffs remembered, 90% of the combat becomes dealing with enemy mage buffs
not to mention it ruins classes like Assassin

thanks for reading my blogpost

Absolute gypsy hag aggravating you at every turn, yet somehow still gets no character development to speak of. Literal nobody and least interesting final boss imaginsble, fucking Cespenar would've been better.

But yes, at least her true form is attractive.
>install difficulty mods that make the game a tedious chore
>reeee why is this game a tedious chore??
Autopause on spell cast is just bad turn based.

It's not true RTWP without most autopauses off, but especially that specific one.
Thing is, that's not *really* what SCS is. You're complaining about tactics components where specific boss fights get spell shields and get turned into puzzles to challenge veterans.

SCS at its core is the AI. Enemy mages and clerics utilizing the right buffs and making decisions logical to contesting your party and exploiting its weaknesses.

You *can* just skip the spell shield component, and still enjoy everything else about SCS. In fact I have no idea how this escaped you when the installation queries for whether you want to install each and every component. It's like you're begging to be called dumb given that you've ignored this obvious fact.
You can't even explain why rtwp is worse than turn-based.

SRPGs usually only choose to use squares or hexagons because of simple design. What if we combined the use of hexagons and squares together on maps? Or even crazier, we also add in triangles?

And no, a strictly triangle grid map for SRPGs would only lead to the most predictable strategies. 3 vs 4 or 6.

My craziest idea, a hexagonal based rogue dungeon crawler.
Hmm, sounds like I would not want to look at the eye-rape map, sorry.
There’d have to be some definite math involved for enemy scaling relative to the player, but it is possible. I’d just expect things to look crazy visually as opposed to actual rape being involved. Everything in game design can be balanced, especially rogues.
I always thought a hexagon with three triangles in it would be an interesting implementation. I wouldn't say that the bias towards squares etc is done as a result of being simple design. Especially considering that it all comes down to implementation (via programming and design, combined). Square grids don't mean the same thing for an analog board game compared to a digital one. Hell, the added complexity of free form movement (ala, Phantom Brave and Makai Kingdom) ends up simplifying the depth somewhat.
There's no logical reason for it to randomly change.

However a hexagonal roguelike would at least shake up the formula of one of the most creatively bankruptil genres.
What if we had the grid change shape based on the player's perception of time?

You have done an excellent job shitposting this game. Morale is an all time low among casualfags who can't play on Normal, the armies of Emberfags continue their attack, but I cannot overlook the blasphemous talk of this "piracy" which is why I am stripping you of your post of Lord Shitposter.
So I heard Kitsune has the most unique interactions. What's the most thematic class for them? I hardly see anything on them. No iconics, nothing.
It's ok just pretend Tristian is a girl (male)
Nine-Tailed Heir under Sorcerer. It’s a little wheal but you’re still a Sorcerer soo.. personally i went with Crossblooded fey/arcane bloodline.
