Nice game

Grinding reputation in this game to progress further after all quests are exhausted is appalling.

If this game is already absurd enough that retrieving 3 pieces is not enough proof of being worthy challenging some giant dark bat for the last piece than I guess I should be able to buy reputation with gold.

Cool game! Unfortunately the faction system doesnt seem to be working right. I'm killing alliance guys to win over the shadow guys in the second city but its having the opposite effect.

Happy 10 year anniversary. PS The game saves, even locally don't appear to be working anymore. :'( But it's Christmas time, so Merry Christmas.

Really good game, but I do have some problems with it.

I played as a mage.
The music is nice, the interface is nice, the items and leveling works really well, and the spells are cool because they provide unique aspects that provide some strategy.

the things I had issues with are:
-sometimes you have to close a mission and re-accept it to actually complete it because the item just wont drop from the enemy after they are defeated
-sometimes my guy "forgets" to refill his mana bar and I have to open up the character window to get it started
-there comes a point in the game where you are just roaming around killing bad guys trying to get enough faction points to do the final missions. which isn't bad however when you are trying to get 500-1000 points and each bad guy you kill only awards 5 points it makes the game tedious and boring.

I suggest increasing the scores to reduce the amount of time it takes to get the points needed so that the player is still interested. leveling up is also a little bit of a problem but not nearly as bad as the faction points.

overall: 3.5 out of five, woulda been 5/5 but its taking way too long to get to the climax of this game.

Thanks for the game, obviously a lot of time went into this and it shows! keep it up dude
