Well, they've stripped the entire main plot out of the beta, so no spoilers will occur.
Bards are OP, by the way. Probably for the first and last time in an RPG ever. Chanters are gonna get nerfed at some point, but they couldn't do it for the beta.
Dialogue has been average thus far, but I've only been wandering around the village. Been invited to hunt for a murderer I've never heard of, which sounds suspiciously like a setup, but not found them yet, and to kill an ogre.
Character specialisation is quite in-depth. You not only get to pick a race, but also a cultural background and social role (aristocrat, scholar, mercenary, slave etc). Cultural backgrounds give small stat bonuses, I assume social role may have dialogue impacts.
No combat yet, but I've got other things to be getting on with, so I've put it aside for the moment.
