Narrative Characters - Get out!??

Post by Jalis » September 19th, 2018, 5:12 pm

So what's the definitive word on the narrative pregen characters... if I drop them from my party, will I miss extra dialog bits and backstory elements by using my own characters? I tried to search online and didn't find a finite answer, just that we "can". I'm at a point in the game where I can do this, but not sure what the consequences to the story / game lore will be...

I hear sometimes they leave on their own and take all equipped gear with them.

Oh, yeah, right - Rabbie took my best leather armor and only boots when he left after the Prologue. Grr!!!

I hope it's only rabbie that leaves. Would suck to lose valuable items because they are stuck on a char that leaves the storyline.

Later when you have all 3 party-members (Green Lady, the thief and the dwarven fighter) and return to Rabbie you have to Chose one of the to leave - so best "loot" that char before that.
Not sure if that char returns later - but the gear would probadly be outdated anyway by then.
Hell is no place, hell is a condition.

Maybe this is another reason to replay the game.

QOL fix: when Pcs exit the party, they return the 5-6 things they can carry to the inventory. When NPC fighter left, Merc fighter was left really wanting that purple baedish plate that just wandered off...

Will MERC characters leave?

If more npc's leave, it would be wise to fill the party with custom mercs.
