Baldur's Gate 3 update reveals the 'most romanced' NPC

Baldur’s Gate 3 developer Larian Studios said in the game’s previous update that the human wizard Gale was the most-murdered NPC in the game, with a “party-member kill-rate” that was four times higher than any other NPC in the game. But apparently he sparks other kinds of passions too, as Larian said in today’s update that he’s also the most “romanced” member of the party.

Gale has been romanced by 33 percent of players so far, followed closely by Shadowheart at 31 percent. Just 1.37 percent of players chose to sleep alone, which I think is an interesting reflection on how virtual boots-knocking has become an almost obligatory element of RPGs. Larian is holding back other stats for now, saying that “it might be fun if you gave it a shot and guessed them,” although it also hinted that “stan memes” don’t reflect its actual data.
