I think BG3 (or BG5e as I think of it) will be even better then BG1/2ToB

    What we do know for sure is that the game has bloody Volo in it. *sniff* *sniff* Dang, my cameo allergy is acting up again... *blows nose*

    @Volo

    Shouldn't he be dead by this point?

    Seeing as @Volo hasn't been active since 2012, he very well might be.

    rumor has it that he was imprisoned for like a 100 years or so, and now he is free again

    UGGGGGHHHHH

    oh oh… maybe the game will allow you to cast Imprison on him again when you meet him.

    Psh, that's so unimaginative! Here's how you should do it:

    "Flesh to Stone!"
    "Transmute Rock to Mud!"
    "Destroy Water!"
    "Gust of Wind!"
    "Disintegrate!"
    And THEN you cast Imprisonment on what little remains. ;)

    Constitution save vs Wisdom save. The good news is he is only level 1 in 5e. The bad news is that he is only level 1 in 5e, making him prime candidate to be recruited into your party.

    Unrelated but for being a level 1 character he's got some serious skills.

    Animal Handling +4, Arcana +4, Deception +5, History +4, Insight +2, Investigation +4, Perception +2, Performance +7, Persuasion +7, Sleight of Hand +3, Survival +2.

    This is pretty impressive given his level and base stats

    STR 9 (-1)
    DEX 12 (+1)
    CON 10 (+0)
    INT 15 (+2)
    WIS 11 (+0)
    CHA 16 (+3)

    Edit: Looks like he's got 7d8 hit dice so he's got some mysteries about him

    7th level would be closer to what I think he should be,

    I'm pretty sure that Volo IS 7th level or thereabouts, at least back in 2nd Ed. I remember reading his stats somewhere and going "Huh, Volo's pretty low level to be pal'ling around with the likes of Elminster."

    People get the wrong idea from the games that level 7 is low. It isn't. And Elminster deals with anyone he needs to :)

    Two words: Plot Armor
    Volo would survive even if level drained to level 0, sadly.

    Weird thing is he's still only a level 1 caster.

    So, over the weekend one Steam discussion happened, which serves as a good example showing that sometimes newer players find BG much harder to understand and thus don't find it fun if compared to later games like PoE or DOS.

    I'm not saying this is the only way to look at it, but it's something that should be noted.

    Not surprised. Players are used to so much hand holding these days. Games today are simpler and/or have more in depth tutorials. Its not a measure of quality, so much as what the current big trend is.
