Hi, I found this game a couple weeks ago and extremely love it. Its challenging random, relaxed, and humorously unforgiving. Especially the gods.
I haven't made it to the later stages very easily completing all quests except halfling Ho ( halfling hell more like D: ) and am currently stuck on the later stages. Halls of Steel, Rock Garden, and Ick Swamp are currently what I'm trying to beat, and am coming nowhere near close to clearing the bosses of these respective stages- the indomitable made me laugh and cry at the same time.
One of the biggest problems with my play is understanding the gods and the apparent learning curve I apparently missed while playing the lowers levels, and while trying to use them effectively i tend to waste tiles or break a rule and still not be able to succeed. I know people can use them effectively, but my question is how to use them well, or they even more highly situational on map proximity than items? Are the later stages beatable without them?
Any tips on using gods, or understanding them better would be beneficial, and I feel this one field is the most needed to be, not changed, but somehow explained a bit easier or clearer. The gods are unforgiving.
Great game though. Some guy on a forum mentioned this game so I gave it a try, and even after (I believe it was the) alpha version I was sold.
Thanks for reading, Rob
