I wish that Rock Paper Shotgun guy would stop harping on about "innovation" and Kickstarter's "dangerous" use of nostalgia. It's such nonsense.
Yeah. Innovation is a bit of a fashion word, to me alot of times it's just a nicer way of saying "dumbed down". And what's wrong with nostalgia? Sure I like that they're making something new, and starting an original IP. But would anyone complain if they said they were doing Baldurs Gate 3 or Planescape 2? I sure as hell wouldn't. I don't necessarily need NEW, I just want MORE of what I love.

As for the setting, I'm absolutely fine with High Fantasy, although I like the "Arcanumish" twist. I would also have been fine with Cyberpunk, Sci-Fi, Technofantasy and several others. As long as it's good, I don't care where (or when) it's at.
