    Brian Fargo isn't the only one visiting PAX South this weekend. A whole bunch of folks from Obsidian are also attending to promote Pillars of Eternity. Unlike the Bard's Tale IV announcement, this panel is being streamed, and it's about to start:



    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.

    PANELISTS:
    Shane DeFreest [Marketing Director, Obsidian Entertainment], Chris Avellone [Creative Director, Obsidian Entertainment], Brandon Adler [Producer, Obsidian Entertainment], Josh Sawyer [Project Director, Obsidian Entertainment], Adam Brennecke [Senior Programmer, Obsidian Entertainment], Tim Cain [Senior Programmer, Obsidian Entertainment]
    What a weekend!

    Update: And it's over! The gameplay demonstration was pretty short - a well-choreographed, action-packed dungeon crawl. The real meat of the panel was the Q&A session, which was surprisingly entertaining and information. I recommend watching the whole thing.

    They tried so hard to make the combat music as similar to Baldur's Gate combat music as possible, that it's almost plagiarism.

    EDIT: Well that wasn't very long.

    The drake death animation where it leaps up into the air and comes crashing down is a thing of beauty.

    They just mentioned ppl already doing UI and rules mods, when asked about modding. You didn't miss much.

    Bester did the UI mod :P, but yeah I think they meant Bester or "us" rather than me. I did do some earlier stuff with inventory slots, attributes and recovery time and stuff, which in comparison takes about 5 minutes if you know what you're doing.

    They didn't say jack shit about assets though :argh: They haven't replied at all about supporting scene modding yet (meaning that if you make a custom item etc, it will be very very difficult to put into the game).

    Wasn't that what the question was about, and they said they would look into it together with others after the game was launched?

    seemed like friendly fire was off... the party members who ran across the wall of fire didn't lose hp.

    Looks good. Even the latest beta became more enjoyable.

    Kinda pity the party was overleveled. I wish we could see how actual encounters works with serious enemies.

    Still, I am very excited for PoE again.

    I have to wonder, what's the reason behind putting guys like Brennecke or Brandon (specially when Josh is there), that aren't very good at the game, when this things serve as advertisments, so you want the game to look as good as possible.

    They were talking about making area art, not giving access to the actual area files that contain the actual characters/items/objects etc that are contained in a level.
