    Just got my book a few days ago, it's really nice and packed with content. The author suggested some books in the introduction as the Black Company and Game of Thrones. I would add Steven Erikson Malazan Empire for the gritty atmosphere and I guess I should take a look at Scott Lynch works. I'm only 10% in but I'm already in love with it. I know why I don't like DnD5E that much and prefer this...

    I don't take the time to write a review because it might hurts author feelings and it won't help the writer that a random guy didn't like what they did. Yes it will help the writer. I tell you as an author on the DMsGuild. A critical review is much more helpful than a bland positive one. I generally follow the policy of if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. That's not actually helpful or nice to the author. And it's not helpful to the rest of the community either. To both of you, and everyone else, if you actually want to be nice, then give a critical review that has actionable details in it. Here are some examples of BAD reviews; - "This adventure sucks" - "This adventure is great." Notice that is doesn't matter if the reviewer likes or dislikes that product? Neither of these reviews help the author or other potential customers. Here are some examples of GOOD reviews; - "I really did not like the class options presented in this product. I found them to be very narrow...

    I think publishers have to pay to enter the contest, more than just giving away products. If there's not a lot of visibility, it might not worth it, it's a bit like Pay-2-win. Without WotC or Paizo, it's a bit strange looking contest. At the same time, it's not the same production level of quality. On my side, I know Zweihander because of this contest so I'll follow this year votes as well. There is no entry fee to submit products to the ENnie Awards apart from actually sending the products one wants to enter to the judges. Neither WotC nor Paizo chose to enter this year. I was going to ask how they got on the list. I was surprised to not see Strongholds and Followers. I could easily see them win a couple categories. Strongholds and Followers was not submitted.

    I think publishers have to pay to enter the contest, Nope. But they do have to provide product for evaluation.

    I think publishers have to pay to enter the contest, more than just giving away products. I don't see anything about that on their website. Where did you hear that?

    I don't expect seeing gameplay until next E3 now.. Release is currently scheduled for November 2019, this year! It has been announced that BG3 will be available when Google Stadia launches, which is where I'm getting the November date from.

    Yeah, with Stadia, you will be fine. Any platform with a Chrome browser. That's actually great for Mac users (and for those with a low-end PC). On a side note, there's the Microsoft E3 press conference within 2 hours, if the game is planned on consoles, we'll probably see a bit more. Otherwise, E3 is this week so I'm pretty sure we'll see some gameplay if it's planned for this year. I did not listen to the announcement, who you mind expanding a bit on how does Stadia works? Is it like Steam or other services like GOG? I have an old PC and was kinda saddened to see that I was going to miss that game, but you seem to say that low-perfomance PC should be able to run it?

    CRPG are more difficult than a JRPG (generally). I had some difficulties with the difficult start of D:OS1 myself (I was trying to min/maxing too much) but the second is way better start if you want to try it. Also, maybe those kind of games weren't for you, that's totally ok. As far as I liked CRPG back in the days, I don't have enough free time anymore to try a battle for 3-4 times. One's tastes change over time too. Case in point, I loved JRPGs, CRPGs, and MMORPGs growing up. I still think they're some of the best games I've ever played. But these days, I'd rather play something faster-paced, like an action, adventure, or platforming game. It's not necessarily because I have less time either. I just have less patience with the slower elements of RPG games (inventory management, travel time, getting lost, etc.).

    I don't think all the studios are working on ONE game though. There's a semi RTS with D:OS 2 characters coming later this year called Fallen Heroes. And obviously, they are probably working on a D:OS3 as well. If BG3 is coming this year, it will be a D:OS2 DnD 5E skin in my opinion, unless they are working from the ground up for this game (that means it's been years in development without any leaks). Who knows :) That not the size of Larian Studios, that is the size of the BG3 Staff according to Larian Studios. It's been in development for 2 years now. The only leak was Brian Fargo who suggest BG was being made, but not by whom. I think a thread compiling everything known from articles and interviews would be helpful for people. There will some Larian Systems in the game in addition to the D&D 5e systems, like environmental interaction/story-telling. I think DD: OS2 had a little over half the Devs that BG3 will have roughly. Like 170 roughly not including playtester...

    You might argue that why they chose those developers in the first place? Larian made D:OS2, probably the best CRPG ever made. I'm hyped as hell (no pun intended). They don't actively court developers, they can only choose those who come to them with money to offer. This would have been right after they took a risk on a newer company and the result crashed and burned.

    Thank you both. I've only read the first two and following to the reading order, I shouldn't even read those two according to the author himself. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/12/Discworld_Reading_Order_Guide_3.0_%28cropped%29.jpg If it wasn't that expensive in French, I would buy them all. Guards Guards and Mort are the best starting places, in my opinion. Small Gods and Wyrd Sisters are good too. The first two books are hilarious, but they're pure farce (in the style of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). That's an upside to some people and a downside to others (personally, I really like them). And yes, I highly recommend Discworld. I didn't discover the series until 2015, but I've read all 41 books since then and re-read almost half of those. I imagine it's something I'll be returning to every now and then for the rest of my life.
