Hotfix 1.1.3 – December 14th, 2018

Dear pathfinders,

Even while delivering our first major DLC, the Wildcards, we never stopped working with your feedback and suggestions. Here is the next batch of fixes and improvements we've made after your comments. Of course, we shall carry on with this work even after the DLC is out. The next big step for us will be Patch 1.2, which should become available in the middle of the January. In the meantime, we will keep reading your bug reports and monitoring your posts in order to resolve the most pressing issues in Hotfixes.

Please, pay attention that the size of this update is quite big because it includes the content of the DLC. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Please, be aware of the plot spoilers in the description below (in the Quest, Areas and Kingdom sections)!

New feature
  • The party can teleport between settlements if they have a special building - the Teleportation Circle.

Quests
  • Players could re-start the first test from "The Secrets of Suramgamin" quest after its successful completion, which blocked further quest progression. Resolution: fixed.
  • The dryad didn't spawn during the "Affairs of the Heart" quest in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • In rare cases, the "Judgment of the Gods" quest could get stuck at "Withstand the divine trial" stage. Resolution: fixed.
  • Some players could not progress in the "Deal with the Devil" quest after completing the "Defeat the hellknights" stage. Resolution: fixed.
  • The party could get stuck at the "Oleg's Trading Post" area if the "Trouble with Goblins" quest was failed. Resolution: fixed.


Areas
  • Killing Nilak fails the "Reforged Blade" quest from now on. We hope this will make Amiri's "Test of Loyalty" result more clear for the players who have experienced this quest resolution.
  • The different ways in which Tristian's "Saving Grace" quest could get resolved don't influence the result of the "Test of Loyalty" event any more (the status of the quest still matters, however). We hope this will make the conditions of Jaethal's and Tristian's survival more clear for the players.
  • From now on, if during Jubilost's "Door to Nowhere" quest the player chooses to grant immortality to a random gnome (Nyrd), she will appear in Irovetti's Palace regardless of whether the player killed her before or not. This will allow Jubilost to survive his trial in the "House at the Edge of Time" after being saved by Nyrd.
  • From now on, Harrim survives the "Test of Loyalty" event with any successful completion of the "The Unmaking" quest now. We hope this will make Harrim's "Test of Loyalty" result more clear for players.
  • Linzi's death could cause an unexpected "game over" in rare cases at the "House At The Edge Of Time" area. Resolution: fixed.
  • In some cases, players could meet two copies of Bartholomew at the "Wizard's Laboratory" area. Resolution: fixed.
  • An incorrect list of destination options for the portal at the "Camp at the Capital Gates" area could be displayed in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • Epilogues could work incorrectly if players experienced an issue with the "Problem with Taxes" kingdom event. Resolution: fixed.
  • First Mate Wellar didn't leave with the rest of the crew in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • In rare cases, a dialogue could not be started after defeating Nyrissa at the "House at the Edge of Time". Resolution: fixed.
  • The passage to Lantern King remained closed at the "Ravaged Capital — Castle Threshold" sub-area if the last splinter was delivered while talking to the storyteller at the "Ruined Warehouse" location. Resolution: fixed.
  • The Curse could still force all enemies to attack the party when entering the area during the last chapter. Resolution: another fix was implemented.
  • Players couldn't find the Briar at the "House at the Edge of Time" area. Resolution: fixed.
  • The Jabberwock battle scene could be triggered multiple times at the "Other World" area. Resolution: fixed.
  • Song Bird could be killed using area effect spells at the "Other World" area, which blocked further progression. Resolution: fixed. For affected save files: Song Bird will re-appear after rest using the the Old Gnome's campfire.
  • The Old Gnome dialogue about the party splitting after filling Everblooming Flower with poison blocked further progression. Resolution: fixed.
  • A dialogue with Nok-Nok finished incorrectly in some cases if players chose "I'd like to know more about you" option. Resolution: fixed.
  • Completing the "King's Return" quest didn't finish Nok-Nok's companion story correctly in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • Some story events didn't start correctly at the "House at the Edge of Time" area in rare cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • The cut-scene of quarrel between Octavia and Regongar didn't happen at the tavern in some cases, which blocked further progression of Regongar's romance. Resolution: fixed.
  • Each character in the party started a dialogue with barbarians moving besides them at the "Overgrown Cavern" area. Resolution: fixed.
  • Souleater didn't name Valerie correctly at the "Vordakai's Tomb" area. Resolution: fixed.


Kingdom
  • Inventory and Journal can be opened in kingdom management from now on.
  • Camera could focus on a black screen when flipping through the events description. Resolution: fixed.
  • Loading the game while in kingdom management interface could break kingdom management in rare cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • The kingdom event when Edrist Hanvaki left the Capital failing "The Lost Brother" quest wouldn't trigger if the Capital had been improved to City by that time. Resolution: fixed.
  • Sometimes kingdom events and projects could be shown as ignored even when players did not ignore them. Resolution: fixed, old "ignored" events should become active again.
  • Players couldn't skip time on the war table at the "Throne Room" with Auto Kingdom enabled in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • Special buffs to help with the development of secondary kingdom stats were added.
  • Players can cancel unfinished events and projects now. In this case the events are considered failed. As for the projects, they lose all progress and players get back 90% of the project's cost.

User Interfaces
  • Tooltip of the skill-check option in an illustrated event ("Book event") represents the companion with the highest corresponding skill now.
  • The Action Bar could temporarily disappear when on Pause in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • Camera scroll could break in rare cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • Tooltips are added for the transition points for the "House at the Edge of Time" area map.
  • Camp: Skip time didn't work correctly while resting at dungeons.Resolution: fixed.
  • A notification was added for cases when traveling the world map is prohibited due to a single companion carrying too much weight.
  • Arsinoe and Hyland are marked as important NPCs on the Capital Square map now.


Classes & Mechanics
  • The Crusader didn't get a slot for domain spells if there were no non-domain spell slots while levelling up. Resolution: fixed. A domain slot will now appear after resting.
  • Vilderavn bleed debuff could get stuck on a character in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
  • Premade Build didn't distribute skill points correctly for some classes if the Aasimar race was chosen. Resolution: fixed.

  • FR, DE, ZH issues for the Inspect dialogue were fixed.
  • Improved inventory character doll appearance.
  • The First Crown had no visual model. Resolution: fixed.
  • New idle animations were added for some classes.

System
  • The Anti-aliasing graphic option didn't work. Resolution: fixed.
  • Bloom or Depth of Field graphic options couldn't be turned on within one game session if theywere switched off. Resolution: fixed.
  • Game crashes while using 4k resolution. Some video memory optimization was implemented.
  • Several improvements were implemented for crashes on startup.

Update - "Wildcards" DLC

Dear Pathfinders,

we have an important update for you today: we have made the decision to move the release date of “The Wildcards” DLC to next week. The last two months have taught us a good lesson – it is always better to take some extra time to make sure everything is ready, and we feel like we should not rush our first major DLC. To ensure we deliver the experience and quality you deserve, we will dedicate additional time and effort to “The Wildcards”. We hope you can understand our decision - it was not one that was made easily, however, we believe it was the right one.

Thank you for bearing with us, and thank you for your patience!

About This Game



With the help of over 18,000 Kickstarter backers, Narrative Designer Chris Avellone and composer Inon Zur, Owlcat Games is proud to bring you the first isometric computer RPG set in the beloved Pathfinder tabletop universe. Enjoy a classic RPG experience inspired by games like Baldur's Gate, Fallout 1 and 2 and Arcanum. Explore and conquer the Stolen Lands and make them your kingdom!

Explore the Stolen Lands, a region that has been contested territory for centuries. Hundreds of kingdoms have risen and fallen in these lands, and now it is time for you to make your mark—by building your own kingdom! To do so, you’ll need to survive the harsh wilderness and the threat of rival nations… as well as threats within your own court.



Customize your character with a wide range of classes and powers including specialized archetypes, powerful arcane and divine spells, choosing from a multitude of class abilities, skills, and feats. Pathfinder allows players to create heroes (or villains) that fit both their individual gameplay styles and their personalities.

Meet a diverse cast of companions and NPCs, including iconic characters from the Pathfinder setting itself. You’ll need to decide who to trust and who to watch carefully, as each companion has an agenda, alignment, and goals that may differ from yours. Your journey will become their journey, and you’ll help shape their lives both in the moment and well into the future.



Conquer new regions as claim them as your own, carving your kingdom from the wilderness. While classic dungeon crawling and exploration lie at the heart of this adventure, diplomacy, politics, and kingdom development are also part of the challenge. Choose your allies well, and keep them close while exploring ancient tombs and ruins — and while dealing with politics in your own court.

Your kingdom is a reflection of your character and your choices throughout the game. It is a living thing shaped by your alignment, your allies, and your ability to lead your people. Not only can your kingdom expand, opening up new territories and allowing you to build new towns and communities, but your capital city will physically change based on your decisions, your policies, and even whom you choose to ally with. As your kingdom grows, a number of factions and neighboring countries will come to you to seek favor—and to test your strength.



Explore - Conquer - Rule!

The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is an evolution of the 3.5 rules set of the world's oldest fantasy roleplaying game, designed by Paizo, Inc using the feedback of tens of thousands of gamers just like you. Whether you’re new to the Pathfinder® universe or you’re a seasoned veteran, Pathfinder: Kingmaker is the CRPG you’ve been waiting for.
