    I try to avoid looking at this stunning art, it makes waiting for January even harder. But, yes, it's beautiful (and those custom banners, argh).

    I suppose Stoic could opt for a regular save mode and then offer an "ironman" mode (the one save slot concept). I played X-COM in ironman mode and enjoyed it immensely, it added a sense of permanency...

    Just finished reading the article by Mr. Grayson of RPS... I didn't think it would be possible to look forward to the Banner Saga even more than I already was, and yet after reading about all the...

    Could we get an estimate on "how long" episode 1 would be? Clearly, if lots of poor decisions are made it would be a rather brief saga, but, roughly, how long would it take (outside the battles)?

    Suddenly, I wish I'd voted for Alette to head to the great hall, I'd have loved to see the two veterans take on 5 enemies and emerge victorious.

    Choices, choices.

    Well, if this particular battle was somewhat easier (or perhaps if I could imagine a way of winning without the use of the two young warriors) the incentive would be to keep some valuable characters...

    I think I'll go with #2 as well: neither shouting or charging the dregde will have an immediate effect, whereas (I'm hoping that) shooting the giant with an arrow will both alert Alette to an...

    Argh!

    On the one hand, I feel "vindicated" for having chosen to keep the young warriors with the two veterans. Egil absorbed two early attacks and dealt some good damage, while Alette was -as I...

    Maybe I'm thinking (too much) of Hammer of the Gods, where upon choosing your path/mission the rewards for succeeding in that mission were spelled out quite clearly, whereas The Banner Saga seems to...

    @raven:

    Certainly I'd agree that the phrasing you are proposing is much clearer: both in who you're actually talking to and what would be the result.

    Going back to something I wrote in an...

    Another point would be that the three choices are not equivalent grammatically -hence, their implications in terms of role-playing the character are not the same:

    Choices #1 and #2 are written as...

    Thanks for the response.

    Just to clarify, I'm not talking about "best" choices but more easily identifiable dilemmas. The way I read the available responses (and of course I could be wrong but,...

    I think I'd go with 3, it'd be useful to get some experience for the young fighters early on.

    But in terms of role-playing, 1 sounds more "fatherly".

    Ah, choices, choices. Three, and let's hope...
