    Yeah this game is amazing. I can't remember the last game I played that had this level of exquisite itemization. Finding a Magic Sling and an Apprentice Robe is like a huge upgrade. And everything is handplaced and semi-hidden for the explorers to find. It's magical guys, truly. Besides itemization, the combat is oodles of fun, leveling up is so simple yet so fun and rewarding, and you feel the power difference as you get stronger, faster and smarter. It has all the perks of a good dungeon crawler as well as apparently having 3 towns? Wow, can't wait to see more! I'm kind of on a binge of this one at the moment, while cycling thru a handful of games that I'm also playing. This one though, truly remarkable and special. Imo. :)

    I still have to play those for the first time Meredoth . If they're *that* good then what a treat that will be! :) Thanks for the heads up.

    They are that good, at least I think so. Might & Magic 6 is such a peculiar game that is fascinating, addicting, and engrossing with one of the ugliest aesthetics ever seen that is yet somehow transcendent. I'd have to include it in my all-time favorites.

    I'm excited to check this game out too, I still haven't gotten a copy for myself but will be doing so very soon, if not tomorrow.

    Hey guys, thanks for all the kind words.

    Sovereign is still TBA and I've been finishing up Iron Ruler, the TB strategy title I fall back on when I get writer's block and such.

    TBA, but still definitely coming out some time soonish.

    Thanks again for all the support!

    Charles

    Hey guys! :) Loving this game but have a question. Does Paladin cap Strength at 11? For the last 2 or 3 levels I can't raise my Paladin's Strength stat past that. Seems kinda weird to cap so low but maybe it's a bug or something? Any clues here? Thanks! :)

    Can someone please answer this so i can actually play? My female paladin is stuck at 10 Strength and it doesn't allow me to raise it when she levels up. Gotta be a bug or something right? If so, any way to fix? Oh, her Spirit is capped at 10 too! Weird.

    I don't suppose the character has a disease or other affliction suppressing the stat? I don't recall if that was a feature, but I also do not think there was a cap on raising ability scores. But I played an earlier version.

    Nope, no disease or anything that I can see. It's been like this for 3 or 4 levels now, so if it is something like that I have no idea how to remove it. I do think it's capped because both Spirit and Strength won't go past 10. I dunno, seems weird for sure but, would really like to hear from Charles-cgr on this!

    You can't handle strong independent paladin womyn. If she gets more than 10 STR, she will leave you.

    Anyone know what's going on? I am hesitant to play further before getting this answer. It's unfortunate too because I am really enjoying the game. Ah well. Anyone else?

    Did you go through the steam forum to check if someone else had a similar problem?

    oh God, it's because she's a Gnome! lol. D'oh. All other races are capped at 20 for stats except the Gnome which caps at 10 for STR END & SPI. Wow. Well that kinda ruins my game at this point, lol. Not sure I can really continue, I'm already in Moltenore. Ugh, so that's why at least. It was answered on the Steam forum, thanks Darth Canoli for the tip to check the forums. :)

    The prospect of a gnome Paladin is just hilarious to me. Glad you figured it out

    Reason being, I generally like to make odd combinations when the game allows it :P . Usually if I know beforehand that a Gnome can't go past 10 STR, i'd never roll one as a Paladin! Lol. Ah well. What do u guys suggest here? Can I replace her or something, or any ideas?

    Fluent Apparently you're in the 20-30K experience range? The game ends around 250K so it seems feasible to create a new pally and just grind a quick lvl4-5 before resuming.
    Or you can try to make it to the end. Compensate with high ACY and SPD. You can't wear plate, but
    Show Spoiler
    you'll find dragonscale armor with no STR restriction
    . It seems feasible to me, although slightly more challenging.

    I see Laura's been doing OK after all :)
    I recreated the forums on the olderbytes site. We had some good discussions going before it got swarmed by bots. Hopefully I can keep it clean this time. phpbb seems more secure now. olderbytes.com/community
    Iron Ruler is just about ready and the SSUDE rework for NVIDIA is done. I'm looking into putting together some material to show progress on Sovereign.
