    Obsidian have published a new Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Fig update, in what looks like is going to be a regular Tuesday update schedule. This update formally introduces the Naga, the Deadfire Archipelago's designated trash mob race. They look like they're going to be a bit more complicated than the Xaurips, though. I quote:

    Behold the intimidating and cunning naga, one of our many types of creatures in Pillars II.

    Variants, Types & Abilities

    There are three variants of naga with their own resistances and weaknesses:
    • Naga (Poison)
      • Resistances: Poison
      • Weaknesses: None
    • Flame Naga (Fire)
      • Resistances: Dexterity Afflictions (Hobbled, Immobilize, Paralyze), Piercing Resistance
      • Weaknesses: Slashing, Water
    • Coral Naga (Water)
      • Resistances: Dexterity Afflictions (Hobbled, Immobilize, Paralyze), Piercing Resistance
      • Weaknesses: Slashing, Shock
    The variants can be further broken down into types, each with their own unique abilities:
    • Warriors: The least intelligent type of naga. These are brutes focused primarily on dealing melee damage.
    • Skirmishers: Also known as archers. Skirmishers are the most venomous, cunning, and deadly.
    • Shamans: Spiritual and political leaders. Most intelligent and Druid/Priest casters.
    Lore

    Naga are a species of intelligent, reptilian wilder. They are native to many islands in the Deadfire Archipelago, and their various subspecies have adapted to a variety of conditions present there, including jungles, coral atolls, and volcanic slopes.

    Social by nature, they tend to live in large groups, often under the guidance of spiritual leaders. Most are highly religious and consider themselves more sensitive to the will of the gods than kith societies, which has led to violent confrontations between the native naga and the many newcomers to Deadfire. On the other hand, they maintain neutral relationships with most Huana tribes.

    Their long-established oral tradition tells of the cataclysmic devastation of the archipelago millennia ago, and of the kith misdeeds that preceded it. Many attribute naga hostilities to these tales and to the mistrust they engender.
    As of this week, Deadfire has gathered $4.55M of funding (apparently last week's update was mistaken). According to Obsidian, the backer portal site should be ready "very soon".

    So they take a interesting D&D monster and turn it into a boring replica that players will probably fight and kill in big numbers on boring open fields?

    Well sounds like it fits PoE perfectly with the game being a retarded smaller brother of D&D.

    Been a while since I played PoE, are creatures usually just assigned weaknesses and resistances or are they justified somehow with lore?

    Is it really necessary to post every Pillars of Eternity Kickstarter crowd-funding update as a news item on the Codex?

    Not trying to be snarky here - I enjoyed first the game and expect to enjoy the sequel too. It is just not all of these updates are actually noteworthy and/or interesting. This one, for example, is neither one or the other.

    The guy that made this update looks like he don't play Pillars,as poison type of damage is called Corrosive. Water will be new type of damage? I have a suspicion they didn't thought that very thoroughly.

    Well most of time its these news or nothing. We don't have a market that releases every year dozens of major RPGs. We got how many big KS RPGs released? 5 with addons? And most of us don't care about vapourware.

    I remember when we complained about DAO, but now you are complaining about isometric RPGs. If you don't like these news, do you really belong here?

    This is false. There are plenty of (indie - obviously) RPGs out there. For example Sorcery! or Ember were never even mentioned on the front page (or mentioned in passing).

    But it probably takes a little more work and time to actually go searching for the news instead of copy-pasting them from mail inbox. I could do such copy-pasting myself, but I do not aspire to be news poster.

    Why? You would get blamed for everything and not getting paid. Just ask infiltron.

    Now, there are few people who actually know about these games and even fewer that care, so dunno if they should be covered. Just watched ember btw. An isometric popamole, what a gem in a pile of tras... oh, wait...
    Meh, made manifest.

    Few people know about them, because news do not cover them. News do not cover them, because few people care. Few people care people because few people know about them. Catch-22.
