Even Tristian having to pretend he is the nicest person to ever walk the human globe tells you to kill those, which makes it extra tiring to put up with Octavia's shit.

is it me or is Jamandi, after she gave me my own land to manage, has been acting like a straight up cunt with that one spat with Oleg? I know hurr durr river kingdoms rule but really, long after declaring the Outskirts part of my territory, she just straight up sent tax collectors to him. and then was surprised when i tried to protect my interests by sending up troops to protect my interests. also

If you let Reg zap the slaver bitch when you first meet them, she's okay with it (as is Tristian). She'd just prefer to avoid violence unless absolutely necessary.
>>
>>1615137
She's perfectly fine with the troll being executed though, just not imprisoned same with the slaver, she'd like to show mercy but just shrugs her shoulders if the bitch is executed, and she never has an issue with you killing bandits

I am just at the season of bloom, but I seem to be able to fuck around to go just about anywhere including Varnhold right off the bat. There any point in doing that, or will nothing happen just like in troll trouble where unless the quest is up nothing happens and you'll just loot the area with awkwardly nothing going on and then come back later?
>>
>>1615759
You can't actually go past Varnhold yet, If you try to go there You get stopped by soldiers and escorted to the town, then when you leave you get deposited back on your lands. You also can't go into Glennebon or Pitax yet. Anywhere else you can go, after season of Bloom is a good time to knock out most of the artisan quests

>noooo you can't experiment on trolls, you should release it and let it kill innocents until someone manages to kill it!!
She didn't have a problem with killing the troll. She had a problem with it being kept in captivity and used in inhumane experiments. She clearly wanted it to be put out of its misery, not released into the wild.
>noooo you can't kill those slavers that go around torturing people for giggles and shit and that kept me and my boyfriend whipped since we were children!
You're somehow surprised that a chaotic good character is a bit squeamish about executing an unarmed person who surrendered and is pleading for their life?
>>noooo you can't kill those bandits that just murdered an entire camp of traders, they said they are sorry!!!
I don't remember this happening at all. Hell, IIRC she found it funny when you talk that bandit group with the halfling into killing each other.
>>

Is spindle a kineticist trap?
I assume it behaves somewhat the way same lightning strike does, but if it ever hits something - it's always a single target.
If it's not a requirement for anything, it's safe to skip it, right?
>>
>>1616316
Well, yeah. You've cracked the code - that's the cuckoldry /v/ keeps talking about.
>>
>>1616204
Octavia Trickster and a few levels in DD for Reg are no-brainers, yeah. Amiri as Barb /THF sounded good to me, but Slayer might also work. Some Stalwart Defender for Val. Really at a loss for everyone else though.
>>
>>1616392
>Really at a loss for everyone else though.
Caster classes generally don't benefit much from multiclassing and Ekun doesn't need it either unless you want to make him something other than an archer.
>>
Do Octavia and Reg's alignment shifts come from romance or from doing their personal quests?
>>
>>1616416
Yeah, true enough. I wanted to give Ekun some levels in Paladin, but that'd make Okbo fall off and die forever, I guess.

>>1616428
It's their quest.
>>
>Tristian shows up in artwork with a crossbow for some reason
>Comes equipped with a scimitar
>Has no mention of such weaponry anywhere in his character
>Octavia is shown wearing a staff
>comes equipped with a bow and has perks for such
For what purpose
>>
>>1616428
It's their quest where you confront Maestro Janush, you get a choice whether to free the slaves or go after Janush, if you free the slaves then Regongar becomes Chaotic neutral, If you go after Janush then Octavia does.

>>1616451
Tristian probably has a scimitar because of muh Serenrae
>>
>>1616451
Scimitar is Sarenrae's favoured weapon. But no reasonable leader would let him go melee, thus crossbow.
Staff is the traditional weapon for Wizards. Her feats are for ranged touch attacks, not bows necessarily.
>>
>>1616451
A lot of the artwork is probably made before other things in the game are finalized. Crossbows and staves are common mage weapons but in the final game Octavia has a bow because she has a level in rogue, and Tristian has a scimi because it's Sarenrae's weapon.
>>
Character exists to fill a slot and be a casual pump and dump till you find someone, anyone better prove me wrong.
>>
>>1616392
Slayer is one of the strongest martial classes, you get full BAB, sneak attack, a decent number of skill points and some bonus feats. It fits her character pretty well too.

>>
>>1616649
Your PC who romanced her in an alternate timeline is cucked
>>
So we can just agree that Jubilost is just better Linzi in all ways.
>>
>>1616589
Problem is getting Tartuk is a PITA if you aren't sticking to the right alignments, only joins in the endgame, and there are no other spellcasters out there. So you are stuck running Octavia because full arcane spellcasting is just that good despite not having Abjuration nor Necromancy.
>>1616685
Can Jubilost replicate Good Hope? Can he provide the +5 competence bonus to attack rolls?
>>
>>1616691
Who cares? He brings the blazing intensity of his sass.
>>
>>1616685
We can agree that Linzi isn't worth using purely because of how obnoxious she is as a character.
>>
>>1616706
Dunno, a character providing hard to replace utility makes her more tolerable. Also, the gal is smart, just in need of a steady hand in guiding her. A printing press was a smart decision, but she just needed to ask first.
>>
>>1616716
>the gal is smart
you could say she's a talking encyclopedia
>>
>>1616691
Wait you can get Tartuk? As in, his kobold shape not back as spoilersman?
>>
>>1616725
Honestly, having added magic item crafting into the story could have changed her end. It's just 10k to add the ability to shapeshift to an intelligent magic item.
>>
>>1616737
If you vassalize him he can join your party at the very end of the game when you go to Trobold during the Laturn king's hijinks
>>
>>1616737
Yes. He's not relevant in any way as a companion though, as you can only get him in the very last stretch of the end-game.
>>
Bros? Why is Ekundayo not showing up at the watchtower even though I am literally fighting the trolls at their base by now?
>>
>>1615137
How are the realm managing mechanics? Good? Realistic? Is it just a side thing to do when you're bored and don't want to farm XP or does it actually matter?
>>
>>1616892
It's a pretty straight-forward, RNG-heavy side thing that you can't really ignore, lest your kingdom crumbles into dust. I like it for the fluff, personally, it's not in any way compelling gameplay-wise.
>>
>champions for the common people to the point of not fixing his eyesight, not afraid to speak his mind against people in power, is willing to let gnomes prank him if it'll give them a few more hours of being happy and alive
>Chaotic Neutral
>kicks a corpse and laughs about it, wants a flower that's been summoning owlbears in my kingdom to live because "it's so sad to burn it", gleefully burns her mother's house down
>Chaotic Good
Can someone explain?
>>
>>1616892
It's kind of meh, it's main problem is that it's balanced so that building buildings is mostly worthless and you get most of you stat increases from succeeding at the random events(which you can save scum). It doesn't matter that much except that you get a game over if you fuck it up, and the state of your kingdom does get brought up in the end slides.

One thing is that you do want to try to get a magister as fast as you can so you can build mages towers and circles in all of your towns.
>>
>>1616938
Elves and women are not people, thus they cannot be gauged by the same alignments as the rest.
>>
>>1616938
whomst?
>>
>>1616830
Because in Ch2 the game punishes you for advancing the story too fast. Reset the chapter and do kingdom management stuff until the game tells you that trolls are attacking.
>>
>>1616964
Jubilost and Octavia
>>
>>1616938
Chaotic Good is literal insanity: the alignment. There is no logic when it comes to it, only delusions. I'm pretty sure she only burns her mother's house down if she turns CN tho.
As for Jubilost, the idea is that he doesn't care about good and evil specifically, aside from doing whatever he can to help his people with the bleaching.
>>
>>1616938
Doesn't burning her mother's house only happen if she's Chaotic neutral?
>>
>>1616971
Eh. Whatever, I guess. I saved Tartuk and all that shit, I can skip Ekundayo. He has no plot relevance anyways.
>>
>>1616986
Yeah, he's only one of the better companions in the game.
>>
>3 chaotic neutral companions
>5 including changing Octavia/Regongar's alignment
>6 if you count Nok Nok who isn't really evil at all

>>
>>1616998
The theme of the game is dealing with chaos
>>
>>1616979
Jubi's ego is too big to truly be good. The reason he's not evil like Tartuccio is because his appraisal of himself is actually accurate most of the time, and he does try to do what's best for most people most of the time.

For Octavia, CG is just generally the alignment of simping for evil and acting based on your fee-fees instead of deciding punishment and mercy based on a system of values.
>>
>>1616998
Not that many lawful people who have their shit together would need to run away and hide in the stolen lands finding refuge in an emerging kingdom. It takes special cases, like 9 Int ex-paladin Valerie and deal with a Devil Kanerah
>>
>>1616986
Did you miss Jubilost too? He should show up at the same time Ekun does.
>>
>>1616998
CN is flexible. I don't think it's fair to count both Reg and Octavia though, as you can only turn one of them in a playthrough.
I'm more upset about the 3 (THREE) CG companions, all of which are the same kinds of retards.
>>
Hey, Nyrissa romance becomes pretty cool if you just replace her portrait on something better looking.

If you're willing to leave characters with a dead level, most have other classes that work with the statline.
>Valerie
She's sort of set up for Stalwart Defender. Sorcerer/Eldritch Knight multi with gold dragon or fey bloodline. Bard ironically works well with her statline but probably clashes with her character background.

>Amiri
Sacred Huntsmaster of Gorum with Mammoth pet; alternately you can try to leverage off her story-based Oversized Bastard Sword and use a class that synergizes well with single attack Vital Strikes - Freebooter Ranger, Tactical Leader Inquisitor, and Vanguard Slayer (or regular Slayer) all have stuff they can do for move actions which preclude a full attack, but allow Vital Strikes, and a dip in Two-Handed fighter also improves single attacks. Spawn Slayer also fits with her background.

>Jaethal
I think her immunities actually make her more valuable in a defensive/tank role on the frontlines with sword-and-board, given the rest of the party members available (only Valerie really provides another tank unless you count Ekun's pet); she can also take Combat Expertise and Inquisitor Solo Tactics benefits a fighter type more than a caster. Some mix of Fighter, Slayer, Rogue, even Vivisectionist would all fit, and she can also build into Stalwart Defender.
If you want to make her a damage dealer you could do Two-Handed Fighter with scythe and build for crits, I guess. Her statline also makes for a good Cleric, and you could even do a Negative Energy channeler as well.

>Octavia and Regongar
Their background and builds are set-up for Arcane Trickster and Dragon Disciple pretty naturally.

>Ekun
Rogue or Slayer dip is fine, could also do Sacred Huntsmaster of Torag to continue pet progression.

>Harrim, Jubilost, Linzi
Most of their kits are just too self-contained/specialized to really benefit from any dips, though their statlines could be reclassable in some cases (Jubilost has a pretty wizard-y statline and Linzi could be a sorcerer)
>>
>>1617144
>admits kinetic supremacy
>still copes
The game is ON after getting wall, and that's level 12, btw.
>>
>>1617175
Urgathoa domains suck and evil summons are great, so Jaethal Herald caller works.

Regongar with his Unga Bunga strength can transition to any Two hander build naturally. Take intimidation feats too.
>>
>>1617175
>Nok-Nok
He's pretty perfectly set-up as two-weapon fighter Rogue by the time you get him and there isn't really many levels left to really radically change his focus, which pretty much leaves him to warrior-type dips - Fighter, Slayer, Barbarian, maybe Ranger for Favored Enemy - all provide flat damage bonuses which benefit two-weapon attackers with a high number of attacks. Vivisectionist is a cheesy dip to any build but fluff-wise fits Nok-Nok alright.

Terrible character. Tried a Paladin first and then realized I'd be stuck with her as the only sor/wiz full caster, restarted with my MC as a spellcaster just so I could bench her. Actually I hated almost every character. If I replayed I'd just have a full merc party.

So I am still waiting for the council to come back after the hunting lodge, and have pretty much taken care of anything that has popped up/visited most of the area, including the sidequests for the artisans or the first steps for companion quests.

All I have left is the counter for Ancient Curse part 2, and I guess I could cross over to Varnhold if I apporach the border control they have. Is going to Varnhold what you do, or should I just skip days on the map until ancient curse 2?

But you DO have a good reason: she's a murderer (as far as you know). The fact you got tricked into believing a lie doesn't make you evil, it just makes you dumb.

Killing people without a proper reason do makes you evil.

>b-but you get fooled
There is no real evidence of her being a murderer. There is a line between being properly fooled (not evil) and not giving real fucks and killing people (evil).

Is like believing that PF isn't a cuck game, I guess.

>There is a line between being properly fooled (not evil) and not giving real fucks and killing people (evil).
So what, you wanted a WIS or INT check for alignment changes in that quest? It's not like you have a way to objectively place that line yourself.
You may say there were no proofs she was a murderer, but you have the direct accusation of one of your underlings, added to the fact she's actively pursuing him. It's not like you have anymore to go than that for most of the people you kill, and it's not like you get shifted towards good for doing her in either. The game sees it as an unremarkable kill, which in practice it is.

what's the point in making a sorcerer over a wizard? doesn't wizard have more spells? also intellect gives you more skill points per level
>>
>>1619675
a) The games have a far more limited spell list than the PnP
b) There are almost no utility spells, it's all abot combat
c) Even among the combat spells, you rarely have multiple standouts you want to use that are exclusive to wizard/sorcerer (aka, you can relegate it to cleric or secondary casters, especially the buffs).
d) You level up pretty fast, especially after they overhauled XP gains in first game and Wrath will have you hit lv20 before the final chapter.

Thus, the spell level progression of Wizard matters less, while the Number of casts and bloodline benefits of Sorcerer stand out more.

However, If you go for arcane trickster or take a level dip/prestige that slows spell progression or a prestige in general (since wizard has less class features he cares about), wizard is the superior choice
>>

Sorcs get more casts per rest and some interesting Bloodline effects, at the price of versatility. It's different, not better or worse.
>>
>>1619675
If you're not familiar with the spell list spontaneous casters are a trap, if you are then you can simply pick all the good ones and enjoy the benefits of spontaneous metamagic and bloodline goodies.
From a strict optimization pov sorc20 >>> wiz20 in the game, but I still have more fun preparing my spells for every encounter and party setup than just go in guns blazing. You have enough rods and spellslots to not really need metamagic anyways.

Sadly all the crazy wizard shit was left out of Kingmaker.
CotW brings some of it back (notably the god-king combo: exploiter plus pact archetypes), but nothing comparable to pnp.

The only time that's been the case is IWD2 and that's because IWD2 didn't give you the spells/level you were supposed to get and wouldn't give you scrolls on time.

Sure, fill up magic slots with attack spells or CC you want to use. There are a couple spell levels that are almost empty of good shit.
>>
>>1620519
there are 3-use per day rods that can cover things metamagics like Empower and Maximise, which is what you would want for octavia anyway. as the other anon said the use of getting the feat is to fill the spellbook when you don't really like those level of spells.
Heighten magic is the only metamagic that doesn't have a rod, I think, and is used to make the DCs of spells higher (like making grease's chance to slip higher).
>>
>>1620519
Not on wizards. But on sorcerers you literally have no better way of using your feats. Quite honestly on a sage sorcerer metamagic is better than focus/greater focus.
>>

Heighten spell is worth it cause it raises save DC and you can use holy trinity of CC that is barp cloud, grease and glitterdust (that isn't that good but work against things immune to all status effects) at your highest level.

Canny defense, Shield, mirror image, bracers make you hard to kill

extra attack with palm of fatigue (or other touch spells), arcana pool and letting you maximize weapon damage, free weapon focus feat early on, critical perfection at lv 9 makes confirming criticals a breeze. So any weapon with expanded critical range and improved critical feat leads to critical damage very often

>other useful features
Boost to initiative at lv 7, can qualify for fighter feats, can do extra attack of opportunities without taking combat reflexes (and it stacks)

>making Reg your advisor over Amiri or Kesten
>>
>>1622837
Fair point. Forgot that relies strictly on stats.
A lot of people seem to be under the impression that it's a good choice for anything else though, which is just nonsense.
>>
>>1622813
2 reasons.
a)Early in the game, you barely hit 17/18 at the very end, so rather than class features you barely utilize or not at all, like at level 19 or so, you got stat boosts to hit more
b) They multiclass Reg further, by going 2 hander or so. You get stat boosts and 8 levels of THF with a reach weapon and intimidating feats, and he just attacks from behind, not bothering with spell combat.

There is also the laziness factor that they do not want to micromanage a magus, arcane/eldritch pool and move actions/spell combat, so they just take the extra strength and keep whacking while he stays alive with shield/mirror image
>>
>>1622849
>he just attacks from behind, not bothering with spell combat
Both Amiri and Jaethal do this better though
>>
>>1622842
>not having a magicfag with no morals as your military advisor
Never gonna make it, senpai.
>>
>>1622849
Even the earlier class features of magus make reason a stupid. Even improperly utilizing them is better than a measly 4 strength.
Reason b only works by respecing him completely to remove his magus levels, otherwise he's just doing what other characters would do better.
>>
>>1622862
Fast-track to a rebelling military, if the game had any sense. Both Amiri and Kesten understand the rank-and-file, Reg just sees them as bodies to throw into the blender.
>>
>>1622872
Kesten is the one who always just throws bodies at problems though.

>There are less than 5 forced solo persuasion checks and you either have a different way to resolve situation (alignment check) or has pitiful rewards. Everything else is cleared by companions.
so few? oh well then i guess it won't matter, i'll have Linzi do the talking
>>
>>1623128
Because it's a singleplayer game, and the player can play however they want.
If they want to be an axe slinging barbarian who can tongue-waggle his way through the Rushlight with Bag of Tricks, then so what?
Maybe they'll play an incompetent fuck-up with his foot in his mouth another time, or maybe they won't. It's a singleplayer game.
>>
>>1623165
>it's a singleplayer game
I don't get this argument. Isn't it important to stay honest with yourself? I'd understand if this was impossible within the game's rules and it was limiting roleplaying options or such, but you can achieve the same thing legit. And it'd be more satisfying because you're playing something unique, rather than a cheat that disregards core mechanics.
Games only function when they're supported by rules. Most kids learn this when they enable god mode in shooters and get bored 5 minutes later. RPGs are no different. Victories are hollow if defeat isn't even a possibility.
>>
>>1623198
>Isn't it important to stay honest with yourself?
What if being honest with themself is admitting that they don't like a certian aspect of a game they otherwise enjoy, and would prefer to circumvent it with a mod?
People pitching a fit over this confuse me, I don't understand why you care how someone else gains enjoyment in a game that has no effect on you besides the fact that you don't like that they're not playing how you want them to. I stopped caring about people cheating in singleplayer games a long, long time ago.
This is only ever a problem when someone goes on to talk about something like encounter balance when only able to speak from a standpoint wherein they've cheated, but this is often a minority.
>>
>>1623198
>it'd be more satisfying because you're playing something unique, rather than a cheat that disregards core mechanics
I disagree. I let some checks fail, but for the most part I savescummed my first time through and all I felt was frustration because of how many times I had to load, god forbid if it was multiple checks in a row. there was virtually zero chance I'd give up the paltry exp succeeding rewards, even if it's drops in an ocean.
I eventually installed bag of tricks when I saw how much exp the blakemoor pirates give you.

1st time playing the game. I've some experience with the tabletop game but next to none with CRPGs.
I want a tanky MC that can hit good with an okay charisma stat for persuasion.

Currently thinking about:

Paladin
+Gud saves
+Smite likely works on most bosses
+Lay on hands, auras, heavy armor
-Is boring
-Forced LG

Primalist Bloodrager
+Is cool as hell
+Arcane is fucking nuts, love me some self-buffs on rage
+Rage powers are nuts too
+Big damage numbers and defensive stats thanks to self buffs
-Dependent on rage, bound to run out of juice
-Hails from a mod, might be buggy
-Characters auto-move which cucks me out of charging a lot. Will fuck with pouncing too.
-Can't seem to use claw attacks from lesser beast totem in the same round as a greatsword, unlike tabletop. That's what google is telling me anyway. Also fucks with pounce.

Both could do the cornugon smash/intimidating prowess/dreadful carnage/hurtful meme, which is pretty neat.

Did Vordekai do anything wrong?
>>
>>1623646
this is just me looking at the classes at character creation, but magus seems to be like wizard, in that you can copy scrolls for spells. it can also replenish its spells using arcane pool. I have no idea how this actually plays out
>>
>>1623665
I mean, disappearing a whole town of people for their souls is pretty evil.
But the reasoning behind doing so is perfectly valid and understandable.
It's the agreeable kind of evil where you really can't blame the guy.
>>
>>1623671
Sword Saint can learn spells from scrolls too. I think the only feature only available to the standard Magus is the spell recall. What I want to know is what (if anything) am I missing here, because that seems really underwhelming.
>>
>>1623646
More casting power than Sword Saint and wider spell selection than ES.
But generally it's the worst out of both worlds.

In Chapter 5 right now. Can I put Tristian on the backburner while I do the Armag main quest? I'm talking the entire Armag quest and not just the war with the swordlords.

The local religions consist of 50 different shades of ritual sacrifices and baby-eating. I'd say Jhod has a point.

Not all of them are inherently bad, there are a lot of weaker neutral gods as well as the typical devil worship

Why would you want him to be? You're ruling a kingdom, bitch. Religious unity is paramount, marginal cults are dangerous.
Freedom of religion is hardly worth it irl, nevermind in a world where gods meddle constantly through their clergy.
You want to have people pushing respectable ideologies willing to submit to your authority, not insane cults worshiping daemons and eldritch abominations.

I've never had Nilak die going to Armag after Tristian, I think you just need to not fuck up the barbarian camp sequence with Amiri by running into the defaced cunt early.
>>
>>1624574
Going for Armag first simply lets you free him from the sword, iirc
>>
>>1624511
He can also drop the whole thing, and give you his blessings with Aerie while staying in the party if you got far enough into her romance before his could progress much
>>
>>1624616
To save Armag you just have to not take too long, I think you have like 2 months after the battle
>>
>>1624616
Those are different conditions. For Tristian/Amiri and the barbarian army, the game checks which quest you pursue first. If it's Amiri first you miss a scene with the salad and it ends Tristian's romance. If it's Tristian first Jamandi gets a serving of big barbarian cock and you can't side with her in the ending slide war. For Armag in the tomb, the game just keeps track of the number of days spent before reaching him, which determines if you can reason with him or not. In this case, it's not related to the order in which you do the quests, just total time.

Can you negotiate a treaty between the Aldoris + Surtovas if you go after Tristian first?
>>
>>1624693
Yes, you just need to have Neutral in your alignment.

How would you ever arrive at this conclusion when even in 5E that dumps nearly all of the Metamagic on them they still play second fiddle to an Evoker/Thaumaturg?

You... do buff up before fighting, right?

It lasts forever though. Why would they walk around the warzone without a long ass duration spell up at all times?
>>
>>1624869
Assuming you've got wizards on rotation keeping it up round the clock, communal protection from arrows doesn't also block bombs (which gnomes are no doubt packing due to being gnomes)

No need for magic, just Craft (Weapons) skill checks.

Are the tinkerers the worst choice? I wrote them off immediately because I figure they would have zero experience with fighting against magic

The items will still be magical though. Which would make them a "meme".

Then get someone else. Magi are micro, even in fucking tabletop

A magic item is still magic, no amount of cope will change this.
>>
>>1624937
To be fair everything that is said about magic only applies to mages with some wisdom. Most mages statdump wisdom and think they are invincible which makes them killable with technology.

Why in the fuck are basic elementals so weak? Why can a giant of earth and stone, weighing potentially thousands if not tens of thousands of pounds be taken down by a handful of skilled swordsmen. Don't even need magic equipment.

>>1624809
>become immune to attacks
Not really...but now you can instantly tell when an enemy rolled a 20!
>>
>>1624982
They are, because owlcat adapted them but not the typical ways to defend against them.
No swarm clasp, no flight, no ice/fiery body for ability score damage immunity, no nothing.
And they've a shitload of hp to boot, so you either slug it out with them, eating their ability damage, or you go nova with your casters (for a fucking mob, humiliating).

I am at that gap between Season of Bloom and Varnhold Vanishing starting. Should I bother doing the Varnhold DLC? Is it interesting/worth it?
>>
>>1625027
This is the moment to do it
>>
>>1625021
>no ice/fiery body for ability score damage immunity
Fiery body is in the game and it works against memedragora ability drain.
>>
>>1625027
Not really, no. Also, while it doesn't spoil the main story, you probably really don't want to do it during your first playthrough.

It's decently fun enough because you get mega XP gains, and you can meet your General later in the main campaign under certain circumstances
The goblin merchant will also sell almost all the really good items you pick up during the DLC. Whole thing's like 6 hours.
>>
>>1625107
Sounds worthwhile enough to do, then. On we go.
>>
>>1625027
dlc has a really great dungeon full of surprises and the tie in with main campaign is pretty cool
it's also about one level of difficulty harder

>>1625150
You get a pop-up when the game wants to import your Varnhold save, you have until some time after Season of Bloom to do it.
>>
>>1625157
It's also written, that it adds some new feats to pick from.
What about Beneath The Stolen Lands? Does that stuff goes on sale often?
>>
>>1625224
Honestly no idea. You can skip that one if you don't think you'll want to play the game for the sake of playing it once you're done with the story, it's a mostly standalone dungeon crawl you can also do in the campaign to burn spare time.
>>
>>1625235
Ayte, thanks.
Also I found a feat list here:
Fighter:
Armed Bravery
>The fighter applies his bonus from bravery to all Will saving throws.
Combat Maneuver Defense
>When the fighter is wielding weapons from the associated weapon group, his weapon training bonus applies to his CMD against all combat maneuvers attempted against him.
Effortless Dual-Wielding
>The fighter treats all one-handed weapons that belong to the associated weapon group as though they were light weapons when determining his penalties on attack rolls for fighting with two weapons.
Fighter’s Reflexes
>The fighter applies his weapon training bonus to Reflex saving throws.
Fighter’s Tactics
>All of the fighter’s allies are treated as if they had the same teamwork feats as the fighter for the purpose of determining whether the fighter receives a bonus from his teamwork feats. His allies do not receive any bonuses from these feats unless they actually have the feats themselves. The allies’ positioning and actions must still meet the prerequisites listed in the teamwork feat for the fighter to receive the listed bonus.
Trained Initiative
>As long as he is wielding a weapon from the associated weapon, the fighter applies his weapon training bonus to initiative checks.

Magus:
Empowered Magic
Maximized Magic
Quickened Magic
Extended Magic
Reach Magic

Alchemist:
Extend Potion
Enhance Potion
Feral Wings
>Mutagen, gives +3AC
Nauseating Flesh

Rogue:
Blinding Strike
Familiar
Terrain Mastery
>A rogue with this talent gains a favored terrain, as the ranger class feature of the same name, but the bonus does not increase with her level. A rogue can take this ability multiple times, each time applying it to a new terrain.

Is it worth fucking the villain and what other games let me do this?
>>
>>1625734
depends do you want the ending that most irrevocably fucks up the big bad? because you only get that with Nyrissa's romance
>>
>>1625734
I'd say it's the best option simply because it wraps up the story nicely. The romance itself I have no opinion on.

i just got my barony and following the tutorial it speed me through almost a month long timeskip and the period that was supposed to be chill exploration is now curse time
did i fuck up? should i reload?
why cant i walk around and explore while the advisors do these things reeeeee
>>
>>1625977
just play the game organically instead of obsessing about optimal choices
>>
>>1625977
>why cant i walk around and explore while the advisors do these things
But you can. You can open the advisor screen anywhere on the kingdom map so long as you are either within your borders or in a region adjacent to a town with an Aviary.
>>
>>1626005
no, i mean when you take over new regions and upgrade a kingdom stat it forces the time to skip forward 14 days
or at least it did with me

>>1625987
well, i dont want to fail and have to restart, i think i only have it in me to play this game one time
>>
>>1625977
You should be fine. Troll Trouble takes a while to start after the curse and even once it starts you have plenty of time to dick around

Just make sure to go to Bald hilltop pronto when the game tells you to
>>
>>1626018
At some points you'll be gagging for projects that require your participation, otherwise you're just hammering Skip Day to get to the next story beat.
>>
>>1625977
Game tells you to visit your capital on the first of every month. While this is not exactly right it is a good guideline. As the game goes on you get teleports and aviators that help with this.
>>
>>1626037
>>1626040
ok, that makes me feel better, hehe
and im currently at Bald Hilltop right now as the first thing so going good already
>>
I keep trying to get into this game, but for fucks sake everything is so god damn slow
>>
>>1626180
That is how these games are. Take your time and enjoy.
>>
>>1626200
I've had no problems with any other isometric rpg i've played
>>
>>1626210
I had some issues at some point where my gpu slowed things down but it was noticeable. I can only partially understand the default speed being too slow since ultimately you get used to it. Different strokes tho
