    This guys mix "Orient" (which means "East") with "Orientalism" (Western fantasies about Orient). I'm not surprised. In Britain only narrow elite have access to real education.

    The Dark Side: Monsters and Undead

    In the beginning Yerengal knew only peace and harmony. A tranquility of blissful ignorance eroded over the years as the dark, malevolent gods came down and took physical form.

    Often formed from unnatural unions between god and mortal, creatures of a vile, perverted nature were spawned. These monsters consumed the innocent and fed on fear...

    Left behind when the gods returned to the heavens, these creatures multiplied and spread across all of Yerengal. Even today, they lurk and thrive in the shadows, where only foolish or brave men tread.

    Restless Undead
    Restless Undead were one of the first creations of the dark gods in Yerengal. Though many religious texts claim their origins were not deliberate creations, but rather, the unexpected aftermath of godly offense.

    Like the name suggests, Restless Undead are mortal souls so wronged in life or so fixated on some aspect of their life, they've come back from the other side. Reanimated corpses or possessed objects, functioning on a purely primal level.

    Though not all Restless Undead are hostile, many find the presence of the living offensive and are empowered by their destruction—either by the eating of their flesh, or the absorption of their life-energy. The Restless Undead are indeed extremely dangerous.

    [​IMG]
    Restless Undead are one of the most resilient and challenging opponents
    [​IMG]
    Animated Undead
    Where the Restless Undead come back on their own, or are encouraged to return by some dark unnatural phenomenon, Animated Undead are brought back by direct and deliberate arcane command.

    These beings are not bound by their previous life in any way and exist only to serve their master. As the dark arts of animating undead have grown extensively throughout the centuries, so have holy magics to oppose such creatures. The methods of countering Animated Undead are easier and more effective than countering Restless Undead.

    For all intents and purposes, Animated Undead are weaker than their Restless Undead cousins. But make no mistake, dark mages and priests of Yerengal often summon these undead minions in mass, where they are more than formidable to even the most battle-hardened party.

    That's a stock animation for Unity you get for free and it is hardly one of the good ones in that pack. It's the sort of thing you get in a free anim pack and think "Well, I won't be using that one but the others are not too bad."

    That monster is one of the free stock monsters available on the asset store and again, it didn't particularly seem usable but I wouldn't complain because it was free.

    They should have asked me, since I own half the assets on the Unity store. I could have given them some incredible monsters to use in their demo.

    Their Funds Allocate Chart on kickstarter page has most costs on New Art if I remember. Not sure if it's good or bad. Seems their new game play vid shows some original art and decent animations though not a rip off from unity stores.

    They just got funded btw.

    Followed this title, even backered it. I've doubts if a new team can make a good game but hey, we saw that happen and 16 euro (in MY COUNTRY AT LEAST) is not much money. I've consider it as a risk investment. Restaurants in Czechia / Slovakia (Bratislava) we sometimes pay many more for a meal hey.

    Not going to pre-purchase (that kinda thing is essentially over for me), but I'm now following the thread. We'll see what comes out of this...
    And I'm not even doing this much with that Pillars thingie, because of Sawyerism.

    I am seeing ads for this game on FB/Twitter. It looks like such a blatant rip off of PoE I thought it was a joke. Is anyone seriously entertaining buying this game?

    Well, I'm certainly not entertaining the idea of buying PoE.
    Which, BTW, is an attempt to ape the IE games, to begin with.

    I can't believe of all the RPG engines someone could copy it's always Infinity Engine. Why, God?

    On the bright side with the allusions to Black Isle Studio everywhere and being a game about greed, we could finally be getting a game starring Feargus Urquaheart as the villain.

    Loooool Jenkem, you must be the funniest mentally disturbed codexer for sure if you somehow got into your head that I'm... British! I'm not, far from it actually, not that its in any way wrong or anything like that. Stiil, I have ZERO idea why you'd think that, but coming from you I'll take it as a compliment. It must mean my English has improved quite a bit, something I've struggled with for the longest time. Concerning that "Oriental" part, I was translating from my native language where that identical word can mean "Eastern". Also, if you read (you know how to, right?) on their website, the oriental school of magic is listed as originating from the "Eastern Empire", hence my comment.

    Cheerio! (get it?)

    Infringes on my copyrights. At least we know that if you want easy buck you just need to say it's IE games inspired or some such drivel.
    Worked for PoE too.

    purpleblob :: Not really actually... at the time, stars were uniquely aligned (stayed home for two weeks between jobs) and thus had plenty of time to ask all kinds of retarded questions (well, not all of them, but you know... retarded is retarded). As much as I'd like to do the same here (and I think this place needs to, gotta find a proper substitue to GreenMagicSpell after all), I'm afraid this person won't be me :-( :-( :-(

    Cheerio! :)

    P.S. Very serious, possibly retarded, question this time (none's gonna believe me lol): has there ever been a thread concerning the "Great Shadows of Amn Consipiracy" on the Codex? I've managed to do something very nice about it and would definitely like to share/discuss it with BG scholars which are bound to exist on these forums. Let me know!

    I have literally no idea what "hopw roewur ne" means... one thing I do know though is not to ask, so I won't.

    Back to that conspiracy thingy, here's a blurry preview of what I call "The Conspiracy Map". The idea of a mind flayer master conspiracy is not originally from me, I simply played with it and somehow things blew out of proportions. Anyone interested? Just show me the right thread...!

    OK, OK, I love you guys, I'll stop being a tease. Here's the full image:

    [​IMG]

    So, basically someone over at that other bg forum I don't feel like naming posted some tinfoil theory positing that mind flayers had inflitrated just about every level of society and were, in a way, the true "Shadows of Amn"... I thought the theory had at least some merit, and thus started invesgating. Obviously I am autistic, as many here pointed out, so... yeah, read the entire scripts for bg, bg:totsc, bg:sod, bg:soa and bg:tob, even the sections that had been scrapped but left there by the original developpers. This map is the über-tinfoily fruit of that endeavor.

    I never realized until just now how crazy this all sounds when presented like that... Oh well.

    Completely blurry image. Why don't you just tell us with words whatever it is you are talking about.

    You can PM infinitron to start a new megathread for video game conspiracies, but may as well just post it here.

    I honestly wish I could get a spot on the team, but I'm really not sure what I could actually do... I'm not a big C/C++ guy (which I assume Unity is all about), I'm really more of a scripter. What I intend to do once this game finally makes it to shelves is take a good swing at modding it, provided the game is not über shit, of course. I've tried modding the IE engine a few years back but soon found it to be a mostly closed community. This time, maybe, I get to start fresh. That's what attracts me the most with the game. For the rest, I do feel as many here do as well that "Crushmaster", "Oriental", "Put Silently" and the like are all odd-looking quirks a deeper understanding of English might have prevented, but hey, when life gives lemons, you make... a black geyser.
