Pillars of Eternity - Josh Sawyer Q&A Videos

by Couchpotato, 2014-02-10 11:18:11

Josh Sawyer released two videos to answer qestions about Pillars of Eternity.

Attributes and Character Archetypes

Answering silkvalley's question "Do you think it is important for attributes to allow certain archetypes? For example, a clumsy and physically weak wizard, yet she deals tons of damage with her spells. The priest who's outstandingly accurate with his spells, but is not a master in sleight of hand and pickpocketing (Dexterity). Similarly, should increasing the damage he deals with spells (via attribute) also increase the number of items he can carry?"

Sympathy for Villains and Antagonists

My rambling answer to the question: "I notice in recent years many "popular" evil characters are written in a way so that they're too sympathetic or relatable so that their status as a villain whom the audience should not overly sympathize with is diminished. How does one write a villain or evil character in a way in which their motivations are well-defined and even sympathetic without defeating their purpose in the story?"
