Dear Pathfinders,

As per usual, even while working on our new DLC “Varnhold’s Lot”, we kept improving the base game according to your feedback and suggestions. Most of the team are now busy with our next big patch - version 1.3, which we hope to push out in March. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this new hotfix. The release date for our 3rd DLC will be revealed later, however, we can tell you that some of our developers have been working on it for a while now.

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

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

Areas
At the Rushlight Tournament, some of the NPCs had incorrect visuals (females appearing as males, etc.). Resolution: fixed.
There was no fog of war in the "Goblin Fort" area. Resolution: fixed.
Some mischievous fey have once again stolen the body of a dead woman at the "Swamp Witch's Hut" area. Resolution: found them and convinced to put the body back where it belongs.
It was impossible to talk to Nyrissa once she had been in a fight at the "Everblooming Flower Cradle" area in the First World. Resolution: fixed.
Sometimes when moving between areas, some random point in the fog of war would become revealed. Resolution: fixed.
The camera no longer gets stuck outside the play zone at the "Poachers' Hideout" area.

Quests
The "On the Edge" quest didn't show as completed or failed in some cases. Resolution: fixed.
The "Go to Pitax" objective of the "War of the River Kings" quest now correctly completes after entering Pitax.
If saved, Nilak could disappear upon the completion of the "Flintrock Grasslands" area, making the player fail Amiri's companion quest. This happened in some cases when the player had previously completed Tristian's quest "Betrayer's Flight". Resolution: fixed.
In the quest finale at the "Flintrock Grasslands" area, after loading the game, Amiri could come to the player and start the wrong dialog. Resolution: fixed.
In some cases, the Hellknight in the quest "Feast of Nails" could interrupt the dialog and leave. Resolution: fixed.
Kalikke would incorrectly not terminate her romance with the player if one of the Sweet Teeth died or if the player sacrificed them to save the sisters. Resolution: fixed.
Members of the player's party could get stuck when walking on the walls of the Adamantine Shield Fortress. Resolution: fixed.

Kingdom
The "Problem with Taxes" and "Letter from Brevoy" kingdom events could get stuck in an uncompleted state if they began on version 1.0.9 of the game. Resolution: fixed. For good-aligned characters, Oleg will not be taxed twice, and a project allowing to rebuild the road ro Restov will appear. For neutral-aligned characters, Oleg's Trading Post will become a part of Restov, and a project allowing to improve diplomatic relations with Restov will appear. For evil-aligned characters, the barony's army will intervene at the trading post, and a project allowing to improve local fortifications will appear.

User Interfaces
Quest objective status notifications wouldn't close when clicking on the "x" button. Resolution: fixed.

Classes & Mechanics
The Holy Lance ability from the Good Domain now works correctly.

Miscellaneous
Punctuation marks had disappeared from the Chinese localization of the game. Resolution: fixed.

A friendly reminder: while we deeply admire the contribution that mod authors make to our game, we would like you to remember that running custom modifications can lead to unexpected bugs and crashes. Unfortunately, if you encounter any issues while playing with mods, our team will not be able to help you. If this happens, please, report these issues to the mod's original creator. Also, remember that after each game update, there is a high probability of previously installed mods not functioning properly. If you wish to play with mods anyway, disabling auto-updates might prevent your save files from becoming corrupted.
