You have a talent for describing the action in a way that is both intriguing and conducive to learning. I enjoyed your Black Knight playthrough and look forward to reading the Witch. I think it would also be cool if you give the variant Valkyrie character a try (I don't know if it's on Realmspeak). There have been a lot of excellent resources for this game cropping up lately; this is one I'll be recommending to my friends. Thanks for your effort.

Day 6 of the Witch's adventures is now up

http://apaladinincitadel.blogspot.ca/2014/02/witch-day-6.htm...

I'm glad your finding the playthrough valuable.

Your feedback is appreciated since I never know if I am delivering the decision-making process and actual game-play in a way that makes sense, entertains and educates.

Cheers!

I'd like to try the Valkyrie, but (a) I'm not sure how to implement variants in Realmspeak, (b) I worry that she is overpowered, with the two magic chits and (c) a flying horse spell needs to be in implemented to unleash the Valkyrie character's raison d'etre.

I will be posting my next Character variant, the Maiden, soon. She is going to be modeled on Ursula (from Well Beyond the World), Joan of Arc and Gabrielle (from Xena) among others.

Just finished reading your blog. Thanks so much for doing this, I really enjoyed reading your adventure!

Day 28 spoiler:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I thought it was very risky transforming before looting on day 28. You could have found the Mouldy Skeleton or Remains of a Thief and been cursed with Disgust, costing you the game!


Not so spoilerish, I prefer taking Prophecy with the Witch. Have you ever tried that with Absorb Essence and Broomstick as your starting spells?

Good point about Day 28. It might have been smarter to have simply sat out Day 28. or spent the entire day resting my type II chits. I had no grey mana or unfatigued Type II chits left, so if that event had happened, I would have been screwed regardless of Transforming or not.

As the Witch, i've never taken Prophesy as a starting spell because it requires purple magic. I should rethink that prejudice, since so many of the mountain and caves tiles can supply purple magic.
