Even a Paladin needs to take a vacation sometime! What better place to kick off your boots and grab a slice of pizza than the charming town of Misery?

Cool choose your own adventure!

Well crafted. Nice world-building going on in this episode: I learned more about the Order of the Paladins and got to know a bit more about them and what they are capable of. I enjoyed the idea of a a party of Paladins going in and taking out Shyfters. But you failed to tie together the plague and Shyter threads in this story. Which is something you have done well before, making each the elimination of individual threats essential in pursuit of the Shyfter. That said, I can't wait to see what's next!

i gotta work on weaving things together better ;)

I loved it. Very descriptive. I do agree with Xuvero however. The plague and the Shyfter issue seemed completely unrelated. Maybe figure out a way to tie them together somehow. Overall all though it was fantastic

thanks for the feedback!

So, I really liked that ok this one you developed the personalities of the "band of Paladins", each has their own set of skills and that's really cool.

But I did think that the Shyfter and the rat plague felt a bit unrelated. Through most of the game it felt like I was trying to solve the plague problem, and in the end there was the Shyfter thing. But it just felt like it was there, just something that happened, unrelated to the rest.

kungfuspacebarbarian responds:

gotta remember that for next time- ONE plot only! i think that was actually feedback I received on a previous game where I had multiple threads going on as well. thanks for sharing your thoughts on that :)

I kungfu'd my way to the dragon and he sucked my brain out through a straw.
