* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Two of Chris Avellone's companions, Durance and Grieving Mother, were initially much, much darker. Obsidian felt they are too controversial, so they were rewritten by other writers.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Two of Chris Avellone's companions, Durance and Grieving Mother, were initially much, much darker. Obsidian felt they are too controversial, so they were rewritten by other writers. And given how those two turned out ''as shipped'', the mind ''reels'' at what the first draft must have looked like.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: One of the kickstarter backer epitaphs in the game was a limerick about a promiscuous bard who flung himself off a cliff because the last woman he slept with turned out to be a man. The epitaph was considered offensive and transphobic by some individuals and pressure was put on Obsidian to remove it from the game. Obsidian did end up removing it, but to their credit, they asked the backer himself first if he wanted it removed from the game. He decided to replace the epitaph with a new one, which ended up being a scathing TakeThat at the people who deemed the original offensive.
