You can play this game without a great knowledge of the system itself. I am not particularly fond of RPG like D&D or Pathfinder but I really enjoyed the implementation.

Like for a tabletop RPG you will probably need several tries to nail down what class you really want to play. But this is not because the system is tedious or badly explained but only because it offers a huge number of very viable possibilities.

If you like RPG and really appreciate a nice story make yourself that gift. You will thank you. The game is awesome and totally worth your time.

Oh, well, how bad could it be? I'm sure I can figure it out, given time. Thank you both. Just one more question: which classes are not taken up by any of the story companions? I won't necessarily avoid the rest, but if possible I'd rather minimize redundancy.

Without spoiling, and if my memory still serves: You get from the start a tank, a bard, a barbarian with a huge sword and an attitude. Other people like a cleric and an inquisitor may or may not join.

Note than if D&D 5th are still like BG and Torment the classes in Pathfinder are much more flexible. You are not locked in one path for your character and your companions.

I think I will just list out potential companion classes - its easier that way since Kingmaker offers lots of classs options!

Companion classes:
Bard, Barbarian, Warrior (Tower Shield Specialist), Cleric x 2 (one default and one Ecclesitheurge), Inquisitor, Rogue/Wizard, Magus (Eldritch Scion), Ranger, Alchemist, Rogue - if you have The Wild Card DLC installed then Kineticist as well.

Wouldn't you know, the game was on sale on Humble Bundle. I picked it up, together with the Wildcards DLC, and started playing today. I restarted multiple times as some of the "leftover" classes, but ultimately decided I didn't want to begin with a spellcaster and picked Ranger instead.

I've just cleaned up Oleg's Outpost. Still wish the combat was turn-based, but it's growing on me. Once I settled on a build, I ended up having a lot of fun, and now I'm really looking forward to the next chance I get to play.

The turn-based mod works brilliantly.

I started another playthrough, this time as a Bard. Didn't realise how much the game has changed with the Enhanced Edition - Owlcat re-did whole of the spider swarm cave!
