    Don't worry, I'm giving up already. These guys might actually be somewhat watchable if they didn't feel the need to shout out their followers every 3 seconds.

    I hate twitch.

    ^I donated $49. Me first. Another option is a fight to the death.

    I watched the stream for an impressive 27 seconds before I closed it.

    I'm watching cause I wanted to see the character creation. Kudos to this guy for taking his time to look through it, but it seems pretty clear that he didn't play the first game much if at all.

    Writing by a codex committee

    Already sounds scary

    There was a woman warrior standing in the sea waves. Looked almost like IWD2 portrait. I wonder who made it.

    And there it is, the complaint that the character creation is too complicated!

    If he's offered the opportunity to publicly trash the game again, will he truly be able to resist?

    I kinda like not being able to multiclass the companions however we wish, it gives them more "concreteness" as characters and also makes hired adventurers not pointless.

    It sounded more like technical/UI limitation(for now) rather than design decision tho if there won't be much opposition Sawyer would happily let it stay as it is.

    If you're referring to multiclassing, then that is a design decision. Originally he wanted to allow multiclassing at any time as well as taking lopsided class combos, but that turned out to have too many unintended side effects that he went with this simpler solution instead. Multiclass characters have a quite a bit of flexibility about which talents to pick and are able to skew their builds in one direction or another that way though and by the sound of it that works fine too.

    Nah, talking about companion multi-classing options. Before, to my understanding it was like f.i. Eder could have been Rogue + any class or Fighter + any class, now it is limited to Rogue + Fighter as only combination for him.

    Wait, what? Was this on the Q&A? I don't read that from JES's tweets.
