Description

Pillars of Eternity is a role-playing game crowd funded as a spiritual successor to the Infinity Engine RPGs like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale. It uses an isometric viewpoint with 2D, hand-drawn backgrounds. The gameplay is party-based with a real-time-with-pause combat system.

The game is set in a new fantasy world called Eora where you are a newcomer in the Eastern Reach area. After surviving to a mystical Storm, it appears you are a 'Watcher', with the ability to read/hear the memories of the souls. Your main quest is to learn why your powers have been awaken. During the journey players are able to recruit up to five companions, each with their own motivations. The eleven classes (fighter, paladin, ranger, wizard, druid, monk, priest, rogue, chanter and cipher) and mechanics are reminiscent of Dungeons & Dragons, but are entirely new.

Pillars of Eternity Windows The character sheet also provides access to information about your reputation based on your decisions in quests and interactions. Maybe I should avoid visiting 'House Doemenel' in the next time...
Pillars of Eternity Windows It is a Blood Pool! I better ask it what it is all about. In the interaction I cannot chose two of the options as neither the racial or skill level is sufficient
Pillars of Eternity Windows In many dungeons "Memorials" can be found with entries from Kickstarter backers
Pillars of Eternity Windows In fights you can pause and activate skills. My tank will knockdown one of the ghosts while the barbarian is in rage mode (red health bar)
