Divinity: Original Sin 2 is Getting a GOG Hero and You Can Help Pick it

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is Getting a GOG Hero and You Can Help Pick it

GOG have been very supportive of the RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2 since its launch last year. The game has now got an additional feature in the form of full support for GOG's Galaxy software (their equivalent of the Steam or Origin client software). To celebrate this, GOG are running a few promotions.

The first is a good old fashioned discount. With 50% off, you can get the game on GOG's digital distribution platform for £15.09. The second promotion is a little interesting. The game is set to feature a unique hero, chosen and designed exclusively by users of GOG's site. 

The designs for the character were all created by fansback in October, and GOG have now chosen their three favorites for everyone to vote on. You have three choices:

"The Doryld"


On a soapbox in a town square, madman Doryld "The Doryld" Surpass, messiah-in-his-own-head, proclaims his divinity and rallies his (non-existent) followers to his side. He is the new Divine! His audience of three, two of whom are drunk (the other may be you), ask for proof of his powers. He resists. They insist. He deflects - only the true Divine would say no when asked to demonstrate his powers. He asks them what good happened in their lives today. The drunks say they found a bottle of wine. The Doryld claims responsibility for that. One of the drunks is converted.


Fadeland Johns



Fadeland Johns sits in the tavern in Driftwood yapping about the good old days. Young 'uns today don't know nothin', back then real adventurin' was done with a bloody sword in one hand and a bottle in the other. Johns'll go out there and show 'em how it's done. Soon as she finishes this drink. If you say the slightest word against her she'll draw on you, and you'll have to kill her. Then she gets back up on her stool and starts drinking again... because behind the mask of the adventurer she's undead. The will to adventure keeps her alive. The decrepit state of her body keeps her from leaving the tavern.




Eithne wanders the Blood Forest, laden with books and scrolls. She was a Divine Order librarian until the Black Ring put her whole institute of learning to the torch. Desperately trying to save her precious books, Eithne perished in the blaze. But, as the magical scrolls combusted and their ashes littered her corpse, she was resurrected. With a burning zeal to spread forgotten knowledge and a passionate hatred of the Black Ring, she travels north through Beckonbridge Fort to establish a new library. Of course, she has books to trade - mostly rare and arcane knowledge better left unlearnt...
