The Video was very well done gentlemen. Between this, Wrath of the Righteous and Realms Beyond, CRPG games have a bright future.

More videos on lore and different aspects of character creation and the game in general that you feel are uniquely "Solasta" would be interesting indeed.

Myself I am interested in who the old Elven empire actually conquered, given that the dwarf (Snow alliance certainly and possibly the underground kingdoms) and halfling lands (both marsh and island from my reading of the lore) appeared to remain independent pre-cataclysm.

Also I would be interested in knowing if there is any lingering resentment towards the human gods among the natives of the world? From the lore it would appear as though the high elves and hill dwarves particularly suffered tremendous casualties both during the cataclysm and after when arcane magic was suppressed. In addition the human gods brought true divine/profane evil to the world in the person of the enemy they were fleeing. (although its probable survival is likely not known or suspected). 

Is there not a feeling among Solasta natives and especially Elf/Dwarf/Halfling clergy that in a conflict divided on racial lines the gods would side with their original people?

Did the pre-human arrival Solasta have no religion or did they have religion but no divine magic?



I am really looking forward to playing this game. Hurry up!!

Nice video, very informative. My favorite parts are the new spells and the body shape slider. However, as left-handed, I'd like to know if we can choose the dominant hand of our characters?

I totally agree with redeyesphantom, because I'm left-handed too.

The character creation in Solasta is very deep, especially the options available for the background: I'm really impressed.

I think the physical aspect of the party memebers will be reasonably complex too, so why don't you add the opportunity to choose even the main hand? Solasta will be one of the few videogame or maybe the first to provide such as feature.

Currently it's not an option, but I'll bring it up with the team!

Je suis totalement d'accord avec   redeyesphantom   , car je suis gaucher aussi.

La création de personnage dans Solasta est très profonde, en particulier les options disponibles pour l'arrière-plan: je suis vraiment impressionné.

Je pense que l'aspect physique des membres du parti sera également assez complexe, alors pourquoi ne pas ajouter la possibilité de choisir même la principale principale? Solasta sera l'un des rares jeux vidéo ou peut être le premier à proposer une telle fonctionnalité.

 It should not be forgotten that ambidexterity also exists, like warriors in dual wield. certain prestigious orders of elven warriors had full control.

Thank you. 

I think at this option only for the aesthetic purpose, not at all as a feature for combat.
