    This is a tactical RPG, I think.
  • 8733
    The difficulty levels are named after historical vikings, I'll play on Leifr Eiriksson (Easy) difficulty.
  • 8734
    I created a berserker character, 'Fightor Fightorssonson'. The last 'son' was a mistake, but I'll take it.
  • 8735
    This game seems fairly complicated. So many mechanics.
  • 8736
    All right, turn-based combat with hex tiles.
  • 8737
    Cover system, huh.
  • 8738
    Yes, my first victory. The tutorial battle was very easy.
  • 8739
    The game seems to take place in Skjern. :)
  • 8740
    I can't figure out how to locate side quests. I have several side quests active, and I have an icon for each, but I don't know which is which. The map doesn't have any more information.
  • 8741
    Interesting that you can look anywhere on the map and see what's happening, even though your character isn't there.
  • 8742
    I have prepared for tomorrow's duel: traps have been set, my opponent should be poisoned, and I have armour.
  • 8743
    I won the duel. Very easy.
  • 8744
    Cool-looking world map. Apparently, there is a travel meta-game here with resources and time limits.
  • 8745
    Attacks of opportunity are like overwatch from XCOM, but also works for melee weapons.
  • 8746
    The homestead is being attacked by raiders. I think I will leave this game for now.
