Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!

A couple of quick facts about the game:

  • Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative.
  • Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€.
  • Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.

The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.

At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.

This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.

During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.

715526c2569fa1d90d55b13c0a97cb20_originaTo loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.

There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.

The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

I like the 4 player thing, mega gauntlet. But we could never even get two players together for anything but Blood Bowl over on my video gaming forum, so bleh.

 

Larian will definitely deliver, they have always made good (and sometimes great) games, and their first KS was awesome.

Yeah, DOS, Wasteland 2 ... and Pillars of Eternity are keeping me quite entertained. Add some Witcher 3 and I just don't have enough time for everything (not to mention painting minis).

My only pause in backing this (and I am backing it) is that I still haven't played very far into the original or PoE. My gaming time tends to be more drop-in short session type stuff: Minecraft, Rocksmith, GTA.

I've heard really good things about Divinity: Original Sin, but Pillars of Eternity filled my RPG fix for a while so I haven't picked up D:OS.  Given that I'm trying to cut back a bit on computer gaming and focus on working through my backlog of miniatures, it'll probably be years before I got around to D:OS II even if I did back it.  I still haven't started Witcher 3, and I pre-purchased that game... :lol:

 

(And if you think that's bad, you should see my backlog of TV shows!)

I really enjoyed the original, but between that, Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Legend of Grimrock 2, Lords of Xulima and Might & Magic Legacy I'm behind enough with my RPGs that I really ought to resist this. Especially given that a bunch of gold box games and all 3 Eye of the Beholder games were recently released on GOG.

 

Fortunately no Mac version yet, so that boosts my will save significantly!

Looks cool, but I try to not play video games and paint instead. I also don't like games they encourage multiplayer since most of my friends have kids and very limited gaming time.

 

@Cash - my husband has Rocksmith. He just started taking real life guitar lessons as well.

It's pretty good, though I wish they had a 'real' mode with tablature rather than the guitar hero-esque format. I beta tested the 2014 version and nagged them hellishly for that. I've got....a LOT OF DLC (Maiden, Slayer, Megadeth, there's some stuff you might like, heh). And it's a phenomenal learning tool, I was jamming with a kid who has been playing Rocksmith bass track for about 8 months and he sat in for a 4 hour set of music he mostly had never played before (classic rock, Hendrix Zep etc).

 

I think I'm going to pull my pledge and get this at a Steam sale in a year or two because I haven't, you know, played the original yet...

    • By Knight of the Dinner Table
      Their last Kickstarter (Dwarves) was full of great, characterful sculpts and delivered very much on time. This here seems a worthy successor (look, Beagle, no Dwarves):
       
       
      Balalaika Maiden: The Gardariki Trade Caravans always include entertainers, poets and the like as well as the more pecuniary-inclined. When the day’s work is done, they string up a tune to entertain at the banquet table.
      Set 01 – Market Women: Although the actual Fair focuses on the trade of commodities and precious goods from near and far, supplies for daily life in the bustling town is provided by the peasants and small craftsmen from the city’s bailiwick. In many cases, it is the women who man the stalls and wander the market square proffering their goods.
      Set 02 – No time to chat!: As the market opens, there is always a jostle for the best spots. No time for a friendly chat then, although once the hunting grounds have been staked out, call and chatter fills the various market areas.
      Set 03 – Georg von Würstenberg, Master of the Butchers’ Guild: Formerly a mere butcher, Georg von Würstenberg made his way to the top of the prestigious Butchers’ Guild, his paunch equalling his influence and power. Some say that, along the way, various rivals ended up in his product, but not to his face! Wherever he goes, he is announced by his herald, Peter Pfefferbeis.
      Set 04 – Guardsmen of the Butchers’ Guild: The Guilds of Bruegelburg always vie for the prime spot in the City Council, and many are not above using nefarious means to advance their own position. Hence, prominent Guild members are escorted by armed guards, who also make up militias policing various areas of the town where the Town Guards cannot or will not go.
      Set 05 – Patricians: The richest and most powerful merchants of Bruegelburg are commonly called “Patricians”, and it is they who head the various factions in the City Council. As the Fair opens, they can be seen ambulating across the Grand Hall, sampling wares and making deals.
      Set 06 – Country Nobles: The City of Bruegelburg is surrounded by various small villages and fiefs, some loyal to regional potentates, some allied with the city. The heads of these fiefs invariably visit the city for the great Fair to see and be seen.
      Set 07 – Paupers of Bruegelburg: At the bottom of the social ladder, a teeming mass of paupers and beggars, pickpockets and thugs makes a living in the meaner parts of town. As the market opens, they venture forth to profit from charity and carelessness, respectively. 
      Set 08 – A Word in Jest: Entertainment is a key aspect of the Market Day, and Jesters from near and far are happy to provide. Just don’t forget to guard your purse as you watch their antics on the stage! 
      Set 09 – A jesting Tjost: An increasingly popular pageant in recent years is the “Jesters’ Tjost”, a parody of the grand tournaments that hail back to the great days of knights long past, with the entertainers striving for the most amusing way to “unhorse” each other and poke fun at their betters. 
      Set 10 – Days of Childhood: Market Day is a welcome diversion from the often dull and dreary life of kids in Bruegelburg, and gaggles of children can be seen everywhere.

      KD:M Kickstarter 2
      On November 25th, Black Friday. We will be launching our 2nd Kingdom Death: Monster campaign. The focus of the campaign will start on a reprint of the sold out Kingdom Death: Monster core set with an 1.4 ruleset. (Current version of the game is 1.31). An upgrade pack with the rulebook and updated cards will be available for existing fans.
      Beyond that my lips are sealed. Except for this tiny teaser of course.

      Looks like Twisted is coming out with a kickstarter!
       
      AND IT'S LIVE!
      We've seen quite a few of them painted up on the forum, very cool steampunk figures. The company is owned/operated by Sebastian Archer who also owns/sculpts for his other brand (Guild of Harmony). I've ordered a few GoH figures in the past and Sebastian always gets the figures out from Australia to the US very quickly.
       

       

       
      Some of the figures from Twisted -
       

       
      EXCITING NEWS! The countdown is now on: we have set a date for the launch of the Twisted Kickstarter campaign - February 16th!
       
      Note it down in your diaries and stay tuned for more information about what will be included in the campaign. As well as launching the Twisted rules and adding lots and lots of new miniatures, we have some very exciting surprises in store for you. All will be revealed soon - we can't wait!

      Looks like plastic mecha are all the rage. Between Robotech and CAV I'm going to be up to my ears in mecha...but the idea of gears that don't cost an arm and a leg may be too much to resist. Don't know that I'll go big on this one, probably one of the army boxes or a $1 pledge with some add-ons. These aren't likely to be used with their game so I'm not looking to get more than handful, definitely not more than say, 20.
       
      Says starting in October, not sure when though.

      Hi all! Thought I'd share this sweet little Kickstarter (sorry if it already has been shared).
       
      Only runs for a few days and is meant to start shipping at the end of the month (they already have the master molds). Thought the price is very reasonable and the minis really interesting. I got the good guys only pack ^^
