    I'm not sure I follow how stamina expenditure works. The game seems to detract exactly 10% of stamina from random people at random intervals? I don't even move, just fiddle with some items, and it still drains stamina?

    Congratulations on your achievement today, Cleve.

    And this is for all the times that I hijacked the mega Grimoire thread to plug my own CRPG project:

    A tip of the hat to you, Sir. I look forward to playing the game once I get the Steam key.

    Just pretend it's not out.
    Keep saying "It's not coming out" when you buy the game and she won't notice.

    ITT, all the people who used to say:

    "Just release it FFS! You can patch it later and fix all the bugs!!"

    Now are saying:

    "OMFG. how can you release a game with so many bugs!!?? I want a refund!"


    Millenial generation really are special people. SMDH.

    To be fair, it was like, 10-20 years of bug fixing. That's a fuckton of microissues, it seems. :lol:

    This game is so much better than I expected. At first I bought it to experience a bit of history, but damn it's taking me in.

    iqzulk explained the system in complete detail in the old thread, search his posts.

    You need 16+ bonus points left after picking class to be offered to redistribute them. This is a feature. Some race/class combos have hidden multipliers (career paths) that increase (or sometimes decrease) the roll for the purpose of picking that class. This is also a feature. However, once you selected a class, it displays remaining bonus point adjusted for that multiplier (up to 40+ for high roll aeorb sage, for instance), while in truth you only get what you rolled. This is a bug.

    Is there any truth about Cleve being a "white suprematicst" all I saw was generic anti-sapiens rants and something against nationalities (like autralians, etc).

    And so after his quest for ultimate Incline, were so many dared to mock him... finally the true prophet of incline came through and all the unwashed masses basked in golden delight
    The true belivers rejoiced and the forces of decline crawled back into their Bioware romances
    The Dawn of the Golden Era of Incline had truly begun!

    Well, I for one never thought this game would come out. I've shit on Cleve many times over the years, but looks like I was wrong. Congrats on the release! And glad you proved me wrong.

    The game could definitely have used some tooltips and sorely needs a manual, but that's to come. For example, do the classes have stat requirements? Would be nice to know what the actual classes do/what skills they have, etc.

    Guess I'll blindly make a party and see what happens.

    No. It's because we can give objective value to a product beyond all affective measure.

    This game was promised to be fully debugged after 20 years of development and was set for sale at 35 bucks. When you click on a character's face, it crashes to desktop. Knowing this, I have two hours to make a decision if I should trust this to be worth 40$ or if it is a buggy piece of not working properly code.

    And HINT : it crashes when you click on people's faces.

    It's perfect, sane, rational behaviour to have this shit refunded. It can be the greatest thing ever, it has a horrible smell of being non functional. And again : 40 bucks.

    It doesn't take a genius. Cleve pretends he knows better than the Siroteks how to run a business but the thing is it makes no commercial sense to buy this stuff at this price. Nope. Sorry.

    So my main warrior has diseases, probably didn't get his vaccine. Eating apples or other consumable does not work: he's paralyzed and all actions are disabled. Only hope would be to cast a spell on him, but the only one I have isn't strong enough. Game over for me already ?
