Baldur’s Gate 3 is real, and Larian Studios, the developer behind the excellent Divinity: Original Sin 2, are making it. But how did they score the biggest win in all of role-playing games, one of Dungeons & Dragons’ most-beloved stories? What did they do to sell D&D makers Wizards of the Coast on their Mind Flaying take? It happened, per Larian’s first of many planned community updates, like anything else in Dungeons & Dragons: with a solid set of armor, an iron flask, and a wee bit of kidnapping. Check out their very charming and extremely goofy video for yourself.

Cayde-6's Unloaded Dice

Huh... That armor’s actually... pretty realistic (with a few quibbles)

1) He SHOULD be wearing a gorget to protect his throat, but that could interfere with his voice, so that could possibly slide

2) His lack of faulds and tassets is especially glaring. He has absolutely nothing protecting his... uhm... waist region.

3) There is a major gap between his spaulders and vambraces that leaves his upper arms extremely vulnerable.

4) He really needs to have rondels to protect his armpits
