    The point isn't that there aren't items to be had. It's that it's not helpful to say "you should use such-and-such item in the end battle", when it's entirely possible to get there without said item....

    I should have taken more time to proofread my post. It comes off a lot harsher than I intended, both in criticizing defenders of the final battle and the game itself.

    When I say the game is not...

    JSON is "JavaScript Object Notation". It's just a fancy way of saying "data". They aren't programs - they're more like the data that the programs run off of. For example, a (very) stripped down...

    I have built a simple editor that allows you to open, edit, and save any "*.json.z" file. I've poked around the various bits, and I haven't quite figured out how exactly the scenes work. I think I...

    Some mistakes are avoidable - for instance, focusing on armor break. There is a conversation in the first half of the game, with Krumr, where he flat out tells you to focus on breaking Dredge armor....

    I whole-heartedly endorse 1-3, and would like to add:

    4. Allow the tutorial to be skipped. Or at least the messages. It's quite tedious to step through the whole non-interactive sequence.

    Anyone who reads anything on these boards will quickly learn about the importance of initiative and wounding. To me the thing that I wish I'd learned faster is the level 0 passive abilities. Since...

    I'm not saying this to be a downer, but Game of Thrones finished shooting this season almost six months ago. It's cool, but definitely a coincidence.

    Put me down in favor of the firepit. It adds a little unpredictability to the match. I've had a couple of matches where I've basically blitzed across the pit taking my opponent completely off guard -...
  13. Bug: Chat window not appearing during matches (when I didn't close it)

    I've been encountering an odd bug today - in the first match after I start the game, the chat window appears as normal, and I can chat with my opponent to my heart's content. Every subsequent match,...

    Why? That's a perfectly acceptable strategy, if you can pull it off. If the other guy's doing the same, your advantage disappears, right? And if he's better than you on top, you still lose. Most...

    You know those things that seem so obvious after you've seen it, but probably never would have occurred to you otherwise? This is one of those. Bam. Thanks, Wordplay!
