I usually go for attack. Enemies die earlier. It also applies to ranged weapons (bows, staves, pumpkins) while defense does not.

It's random, but they appear on Halloween for sure (try setting your clock to halloween and play a game). Also, I think the Trickster has a better chance of getting halloween items.

All you can do is erase your saved game and remake a character. Go to \My Documents\Tilted Mill\Hinterland\saves and erase or move the files there.

ps. once you finish a game, your character is added to the scoreboard and you can't play him again.

They break from chasing you if you run far enough. Attack what you can, be sure to get healers asap. Go back to town and you will regenerate your health faster. When things look bad, you can tell your party members to 'return to job in town' while paused, so they don't get killed. Also, try to get a...

Healers already level by healing. It just happens so damn slow. What I think will help is wands/staves that have something faster than "Slow" - maybe average or even fast. That way, healers can heal more often and hence will level up faster. Personally, I'd rather have some sort of XP bonus added to...

Item Properties

Hey I've noticed that you'll often find magical items (have a blue glow) that also have special properties. They consist of 2 pieces: A prefix and a suffix. Here's the list of what I've seen, followed by what I *think* they do. Prefixes ⋅ Vorpal - either increases Critical Hit, or increase...

Here are my saves, in case anyone wants to check them out.

I noticed you can edit the .sav and .mis (it's open source) so it's probably possible to add a monster there or something.

If the King asks for something you don't have, just ignore it. He usually wants it in 10 days; this is plenty of time to get your fame up. Then you'll have to deny his request and take the fame hit but you'll still be able to keep going (provided you were out there killing stuff and getting fame).

Fallen hero is interesting. He doesn't consume food so it's possible to finish the entire game without a town and with patience. Raiders aren't a problem because raiders don't do anything if they get to your town and there's nobody to kill (they leave eventually - they don't attack your keep). Once ...

For those having trouble getting higher level townspeople:
What worked for me is - build fame and money. Once you have enough, start booting people out and moving higher level people in. Late game means you'll have plenty of cash!

Would be a nice feature! But all you can do now is press T while in a town, press Space to pause and mouse over the action to figure out names.

If it crashes, just go back and you'll notice it saved it like 5 seconds behind where you last were. This happened to me before (crashed near the end) but I was able to hop back in. On the other hand, if you're not confident in your abilities and you're playing on Hardcore, then you can copy the sav...

Neverending Game Bug

Hey I believe I've hit a bug where the game never ends. I am playing on hardcore long, with raiders, as orc warrior. Anyway, I've cleared 49/50 areas, where the last area (the final raider castle) has 0 enemies remaining but isn't crossed out! There is also a "raider symbol" on the map to the north,...

There are a few townspeople who are sort of wasteful if you don't have them in your party. Bards are one (they still give the +3 town quality if they're in your party), and guards are also kind of useless unless you want them to handle raids on their own (they usually can't because they're terrible).

On longer and more difficult game modes, enemies are tougher and it's more challenging. The raiding parties get consistently more difficult so there's pressure to level your character as well as your party members, and to capture important resources. The game is surprisingly addictive but sadly I th...

I don't really agree, potions are quite awesome. The problem is the effects of potions are somewhat obscure but if you take notice to how much faster a difficult enemy takes damage due to your +attack potion or whatnot, then you'll notice how good potions really are. Next, inventory space isn't an i...
