Yeah, Deja, that's what I was referring to.  I don't even know where I got Lefa from.  Thanks for the correction.

Yes.  And they'd have to keep it in, unless they thoroughly change the entire game, as
Code:
reviving God is one of the main plotlines for the first 2/3 of the game.  This isn't really a spoiler, considering you're told
this on your first trip to Lefa, but hey, better safe than sorry.

The Dungeon Siege game for PSP has a Necromancer/summoner type class as well.

Morrowind has a brilliant mod that lets you be a true Necromancer, in a sense that you need to prepare dead bodies, by forcing their decay by leaving them out in the wilderness, carrying them over your shoulder if they're still formed, and using special salts to keep them as fresh as you need.  It also adds Back Soul Gems.

I'd highly recommend it.

I've mixed feelings.  On one hand, some of those shards were really well hidden and you had to explore every nook and cranny to find them, to the point where it was almost ridiculous.  I think one of the shards for the optional dungeon was missable, as well.

On the other hand, whenever games have maps and radars I tend to "follow the dot" so to speak and make a beeline towards the treasure, without spending as much time exploring.  I know this is more a personal flaw than a flaw in the design, though.

Thank God for that, the in-game animation was pretty bad.

The best PvP I've had was in specifically made fight-clubs using the Red Soapstone and a host.  Otherwise, I wouldn't even bother.

My first playthrough I played as a pure Sorcerer.  It's really, really, easy - by far the easiest way to play.  The way I make it more fun is to not add any (or many) points into Vitality.  It teaches you how to properly dodge.

My second I played a Faith-based character that I eventually turned into a Faith-based Sorcerer via the Darkmoon Talisman.  It was easy, it just takes twice as long to develop your character.

My third was a parry-based thief who only used Bandit's Knife and didn't backstab.  Some of the bosses were quite challenging this way, but it was fun.

After that I realized how fun two-handed weapons were.  I don't think I could play as anything else now.

It's a crime for Rufus to be so low.

I recently finished "Desperate Passage," a historical non-fiction based on the Donner Party, which I'd highly recommend if you're at all interested in survival stories.  Despite the genre, I usually loathe non-fiction, the book is extremely suspenseful and some parts border on horror, along with some mystery when you get into the later details.  But it is also quite brutal and descriptive, so if you're squeamish, avoid it.

If you're unfamiliar with the Donner Party, or have only heard that "they were a group of pioneers who got stuck in the Sierra Nevadas over the winter and had to resort to cannibalism" then you'll be amazed at how much you don't know.

You don't, at least not as easily as ME3.

If I remember correctly, the enemy needs to be right on top of you, then hit whatever is your gun trigger.  It's a bit primitive and limited.
867  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Crimson Shroud - Matsuno's Newest Game on: December 14, 2012, 01:23:44 AM
It's out already?

I had no idea, thanks!

Well I honestly can't say I'm surprised.  This is about what I expected.

Actually it doesn't look half bad for a browser game.  But I'm a sucker for oldschool 4X stuff.

To be honest, I was expecting a mobile or social game, or, the way SE has been going, GREE.

I am a bit disappointed, though.  I would have liked a new SO game.
869  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square-Enix is teasing something. on: December 11, 2012, 10:03:33 PM
Yeah, seemingly the only thing that changed from the site before is added animation. As expected, it tells us absolutely nothing.

As one of the five people on the planet who enjoyed SO4 despite its stupid characters, I'd be excited for a new entry in the series, but I'm not exactly sure where they'd go with the storyline.  I mean we have a concrete "end" so to speak, in SO3, and we've already seen the Universe 700,000,000,000 years before the series began in SO2.  And of course SO4 being a prequel as well.
