Did anyone watch the Gameplay Stream yesterday? https://www.twitch.tv/videos/654892684  Quite a good amount of stuff being revealed here, I wish them showed the Character Creator again T_T I noticed that Shadowheart cast both Guiding Bolt (Action) and Healing Word (Bonus Action) in the same round in the first fight, intentional rule change or little mistake? Also, I was a bit surprised how when you're playing the companions you suddenly become mute. It's absolutely understandable to avoid...
