The infuriating design of Pathfinder: Kingmaker shows the value of a Dungeon Master

OPINION: Here’s the kind of game Pathfinder: Kingmaker (Owlcat Games, PC) is. It opens with a fairly linear tutorial that lasts about an hour, introducing players to mechanics, characters, and the effects of choices.
