After PAX South and PDXCon, the Pillars of Eternity extended publicity tour continues at PAX East in Boston. Once again, it's a gameplay demonstration followed by a Q&A session, with the full Obsidian crew on board. It should be starting any minute now:
Pillars of Eternity with Obsidian Entertainment
Did you miss games like Baldur's Gate, Planescape Torment, and Icewind Dale? We sure did and decided to do something about it! Join the design team at Obsidian Entertainment for a special preview and Q&A discussion of the wildly successful Kickstarter CRPG, Pillars of Eternity. Obsidian's RPG veterans: Chris Avellone, Josh Sawyer, Tim Cain, Adam Brennecke, Brandon Adler, and Shane DeFreest will be on hand for a unique opportunity to celebrate this return to classic RPG game making.

Update: And it's over. It was a rather geeky presentation this time, that began with an in-depth introduction to the companions Obsidian chose to use in their gameplay demonstration. The gameplay itself consisted of a bout of dungeon combat, followed by a fairly in-depth look at the stronghold and its mechanics, which are vaguely Crusader Kings-ish. No wonder Paradox likes this game! Too bad the subsequent Q&A session wasn't as good as the one at PAX South, though.
