    Tags: Cleveland Mark Blakemore; Golden Era Games; Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar

    If there is one man who knows not to rush perfection, it's Cleveland Mark Blakemore, and so RPG enthusiasts worldwide had to wait quite a bit for Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar to become truly complete.

    However, the waiting is now over, as Grimoire V2 has been supplemented with a Grimoire Manual V1.0. Obviously, the release is not without its micro-issues, but fortunately the neanderthal-in-chief is well aware of them. To quote:

    I had some problems getting the tables formatted in the output HTML but it is presentable. I'll fix it up as I go until it is ready for a hardcopy version.​

    Though if you're already starving for Grimoire Goodness, you can check the manual online here. I think it is fair to say that everyone should now go ahead and have a taste of Incline given that the game is exhaustively documented.


    Is this finally the end of the Grimoire saga? A close look into some of the sections reveals mysterious notes:

    CUSTOM WIDGET SET ( UNUSED ) ( FUTURE EXPANSION )​

    What could this mean?

    And with this, every single one of Cleves promises has come true and the prophecy has finally been fullfilled.

    I greatly enjoyed the section under Rostering a Party, which details the different philosophies that help characterize the methods and nature of distinct party builds in Grimoire.

    All it's missing are a bunch of recipes at the end of the book.

    Is it me, or the font changes several times through-out the manual?

    I may be slipping into a severe case of early dementia...

    As I've said. It's all shit from the tool tips and other readily available informational screens in game.

    BEST JOKE EVER, CLEVE!

    Indeed, THAT would be very :obviously:

    However this is Cleve we are talking about. It would be more fitting to see a survival guide on how to survive the impending Machete Rape Squads....

    I just got up to the section about the different attack modes (bludgeon, pierce, slash, etc.)... they also have an impact on what row of enemies a character is targeting, with corresponding to hit and penetrate modifiers.

    Deep mechanics!

    A Friday never to be forgotten. I feel like giving you all a big hug to celebrate this shared joyous experience.

    Also, since when could Roxor make news posts? He should use this power for good more often.

    Yes, so much timing to wait for manual.
    So much money spent on alcohol and whores just to pass time - and manual is pretty empty. For stats it just copies in-game tips! So how, for example, Wis or Wil affects magic casting you can only guess.

    Why are you chasing him? You got even into Climatchangin thread and gave him some bad brofist. :lol:

    Also, sadly I can't into blobbers, no matter how I try - it's not my cup of tea. But I support Grimoire with all fibres of my soul.

    I've had gay stalkers before, Zepo, but you qualify as one of the most persistent and amorous lawn gnomes who has ever followed me home from work discreetly slowly fondling himself.

    He can't.

    Cleveland "Soy Boy Mark" Blakemore doesn't understand what he programmed (and what mistakes he made) 20 years ago.
