So, for the past four months, I have been working with a friend (our friendship being forged in the fires of Roguelikes) to make our first Platinum Trophy "Road Map and Trophy Guide" at

Some of you may remember Ryan "Aeliana" Mattich, one of RPGFan's past staffers. He's gone on to be one of the top Sony-trophy hunters in the world. And he's also written definitive guides for dozens of games.

This one is my first, and it might be my last. Again, it was co-written. It took 15,000 words on the main guide, 2,000+ words for four supplemental "mini-guides" that are frequently used, and approximately 40 spreadsheets (across 4 workbooks) shared via Google Drive that cover all 900 items and all 300 monsters.

I gotta say ... I'm pretty proud of this. Also, the game is only like $20 at this point. So if you like Roguelikes, IMO it doesn't get better than the Shiren franchise. It's Japanese Roguelike in its most essential form.

I don't know that I'll ever do any walkthroughs this ambitious again ... though I'm toying with the idea re: Touhou Genso Wanderer.

In the meantime ... hope someone gets use out of this. Most people didn't even attempt the Plat, and nobody was going to write the guide ... so WE wrote the guide and we are proud!
