    It's a pity. Ashikari is a good class even with Way of the Scorpion and Way of the Zephyr, but Ashikari who knows Way of the Dragon is an unstoppable machine of destruction.

    Nostalgia overload! First RPG I ever played, probably around '95...

    I remember thieves being super overpowered? I had some merc thief join, and any time she got a kill she got an (and immediate) turn, or something like that. Might be the "Deadly Strike" skill? I would have some encounters where she would kill every single enemy before anyone else even moved.

    Levelling/training is p. cool; paying to go to different trainers, taking time + money, random result (as a kid I abused the fuck out of the save/reload = new result! implementation of levelling and loot generation).

    I played the shareware version, there was some passage through mountains or something that was blocked, for the next chapter that was never released... Will be interested to see if there's any extra content in this version.

    Keep up the good work! :salute:

    The game is looking good! I really like the top-down map view. The dungeon exploration screen also looks nice. And that first spell list is awesome.

    ..."to open a mere gateway", really!? It's a goddamned Demon gateway!

    Awwwsome.
    :thumbsup:

    :P

    Poor Lee Bane, though. :( Can you resurrect him at a temple or something? Or are you doing a kinda-ironman run?

    Wow, the very first dungeon, and you are choked with enemies from all sides.

    A shame that my suggested paladin is sluggish and only able to deliver when close to enemies.

    I can, for a price connected to his level (I think). But I won't. As every good KKKodex LP, there's no place for the weak :rpgcodex:

    Aethra Chronicles :love: I remember playing the shareware of this one a lot as a kid, but I was too young to finish it. Time to find the full version, this just jumped to the front of my list of old stuff to play again!

    Hoverdog never completed his Albion LP by the way.

    I don't blame him. What a positively painful game to play.

    Daym this looks really good. Perfect example of simple, yet aesthetically pleasing graphics. Also, kicking ass with a party is always a plus.
