Baldur’s Gate 3 is an epic game of choice and consequence. Unfortunately, many people choose to wear underpants.
Now that Larian Studios has offered the latest major update to its hit game, the developer has released player statistics for 51,000 years of cumulative playtime. There are the usual things: preferences for classes, types of characters, number of fireball uses and transformations into cheese. But statistics also show the cowardice of players: 66% of characters who romanced the elf druid Halsin decided not to go to bed.
Halsin isn’t even in the top 3 romantic partners, most choose a half-elf cleric. But many Baldur’s Gate 3 players are, and most of those who choose to court the mighty bear man simply won’t let him literally be a bear!
Part of the fun of D&D and other tabletop games is the wild stories that can be woven from fantasy worlds and the creativity of the players. Or frankness, when the mood at the table is right and everything is handled with care. One of those things is sex with a bear druid, but apparently not enough players have experienced this. Well, this is a reason for another passage.
