Things you might not know...
More work will be done on the tutorial, so there some things that haven't been explained properly in-game so far that you might not be aware of...
  • If you press the I key on your keyboard, it will show the large Inventory display. You can use this to see all of the cards being held by players. Clicking the small coloured cards near your character portrait opens this too!
  • Clicking inside the Play Area (the box at the bottom of the screen) will switch that box between the description of the space currently in focus and showing your usable cards.
  • Queuing spells - if you're not sure when a spell can be cast, or you just don't want to forget to cast it, then double-click it when it is NOT glowing blue and it will raise slightly. It is now 'queued' and will automatically cast the next time it is possible. Note - Counterspell cannot be queued.
  • Auto-Kill - if your Strength or Craft is 6 or more better than an enemy you are about to fight, you can just press the Continue button and skip the fight altogether because you cannot lose. This cannot be done against other characters.
  • For those of you who suffer from RSI (like me!), you can press the Space Bar as a keyboard shortcut for whatever the current glowing option is on the right hand side - Roll Dice, Continue, etc.
  • Use the mouse wheel to zoom in/out of the currently focussed space. If you zoom in during the AI's turn, you get a nice close-up view of the action.
  • There is a triangular slot next to each character's portrait, which fills in and shows you when that character has a Talisman card.

    Hope these are of some interest to you guys!

Good to know - thanks very much for the heads-up! :-)

Yes, good to know!
As per auto-kill , should it be 7 more or wouldnt 6 more suffice ?
If a playerhas str of 7 whereas the monster an str of 1, then could you ever lose although the diff is 6 ?

Some nice features in there. Cheers.

Nice!

I found out everything by myself but the Space for Glow, freakin useful!

Good stuff. Can I suggest we have more information in general on whats going on. If a card is in play for three turns for example can we have it on the screen to the side of the board to do that. For example a Blizzard slowing everyones movement. Maybe with a little windy cold sounding sound effect?

Information on your current Warlocks Quest would be nice, unless I missed that as well. I know the Warlocks Quest will be replaced with cards in the FrostMarch expansion but that will be a while coming lol....

Are there plans to add a help button at the startup screen?

I just this, sometimes the text in the Play Area doesn't exactly fit within the box depending on the square you're looking at.

They're in the Reaper pack, so not long to wait, but we'll look into another way of showing it for the base game too.

A tonne of tooltips would be awesome too:)

If I hadn't played Prologue I'd have no idea what all the numbers at the top where (at a glance)

Also

C - draws a card
D - rolls the dice
S- draws a spell card

I got that wrong actually, it is 6, not 7.
Sorry!
There was a bug in my original post, which I have now fixed :)

Two things:

1: An in-game wiki or searchable database to find rules and look up info on features.

2: Mouseover tooltips connected to the above wiki/database.

This can't be difficult - if a website can have these features then it's not too much to ask for it in a game.
