This seems like a problem that could be easily fixed. Like after a certain amount of kills just give the enemy an icon like an x or something in the bestiary just to know its complete like yeah no this enemy doesnt give a shard so people dont spend hours farming the same enemy for no reason
I don't think this is a serious flaw, it is just a small problem for me, that i would want to see differently. But i do have confidence on IGA and the dev team. And yes, Morte has no Shard because that creature is a half-demon, it has some context and i like that. ANyway, i wanted to see if i was alone n that matter, and i think i am haha.
For what it's worth, I agree with your sentiment, for precisely the reasons you outlined (and were largely ignored on), re the fact that mandated souls = forced creativity and de facto variety. Narrative-driven laziness will just result in an ability variety that is comprised, to a disappointing proportion, of legitimately useful abilities at the obvious expense of abilities which exist for the fun factor. We could not expect, for example, to see anyone throwing paper airplanes with a lethargic "Hoi." under such a system.
No. I agree. I loved the paper air plane and throwing plates of hot curry. I think when they created these abilities, they were under stress to come up with something. And when humans do that they become silly.
But the paper air plane (and curry) ended up being super useful, and I think that was a mistake, it being useful. I have killed many a boss with that beast of a move.
These kinds of things end up being the stuff of legends. Something that we intended one way, ended up another, and it was good. We can't have accidental creative genius when we are regulating to what we only deem useful.
And I want to slay a boss with a plate of delicious mac and cheese. Please make me a silly butler/waiter enemy that drops weapon grade mac. Thank you.
ShroudedTraveler: I wouldn't want them in it (I have no love for them, whatsoever), they were just the first 'have a friend' with them character I thought of. Probably because of Smash Ultimate.

Ryngar Acia: I unironically hope they're Asha and Pepelogoo.

Enkeria: Would hope for O.D. for the 3rd playable character. But would be fine as the main character in the sequel too.

XombieMike: It's confirmed to be a cross over character, so not OD

Redogan: Sheesh. Old habits die hard. I jumped on here to read up about the 3rd playable character and instinctively looked around and clicked on a wall mac.

XombieMike: Gotta find all the secrets!
Mar 30, 2022 17:36:34 GMT -6
XombieMike: There are a few secrets here

Time 4 Tea: I really like this forum... I just wish it was a bit more active. Perhaps we need a Ritual of the Night 2 to liven things up?

XombieMike: Thanks. I think this place still serves a good purpose for keeping organized linkable info. Most discussions happen on Discord these days.

Enkeria: Ritual of the Night 2 is a thing that will happen. Yes.
Jun 22, 2022 17:19:11 GMT -6
ShroudedTraveler: This is still the primary place I look at for info/updates. Occasionally, I lurk. The discord has too many discussions for me and seems super tight knit, so I typically just leave it muted since I won't check it enough to really break in.
Aug 23, 2022 12:58:34 GMT -6
ShroudedTraveler: And by that I mean, there seem to be regulars and most people are aware of each other, so the conversations move too quickly for me to reasonably keep up with how rarely I check in

XombieMike: The announcements channel is good on Discord. We will post updates here too, though.
Aug 29, 2022 14:34:02 GMT -6
XombieMike: The recent Journey update has been neglected here.

ingway: even if they were to tell me when this would finally ship ... i doubt i would believe it. a miserable little pile of secrets indeed.

XombieMike: IGA's army ill needs such a savior as you. It will ship when it's finished. There is still DLC to complete
