The stronghold part and the games latter parts are generally good, but before getting there one has to trudge through some of the most boring 15-20h in RPG-ing. Id say theres nothing "" about not playing the game .

Personally I first and foremost want companions with depth la Planescape: Torment and that game worked with 7 companions just fine, storywise.
However, Id like P:Es companions to be more customizable character development wise, which goes hand in hand with hoping that each of the 7 available classes (taking stretch goals into account) will offer a good variety of possible development paths.

Also, the initial amount of companions raises a question of max party size. I mean, if the max party size was planned to be 6, then only 5 available companions would mean same party for everyone. Taking the stretch goals into account, 8 companions would indicate more strongly that max party of 6 could be in the plans (and in the update vid, behind Adam Brenneke theres a board with what seems like some possible party formations and these consist of 6), but I have to wonder what party size was planned originally.
Personally Id be quite disappointed if the max party size will end up being pc + 3 companions, for example.

Anyway, hopefully theyll whip out some more meaty info fast. While I was perfectly fine with the initial presentation, currently the stretch goals ring a bit hollow to me due to general lack of tangible info on the game.
