3 supplies at frostveldr or whatever it's called
every time at the start of chapter 4, no matter how many supplies I've ended chapter 3 with and no matter the choice I make, I end up with 3 days worth of supplies. This seems pretty bad given that the moment I get to the city I bought a lot of supplies, meaning I was stripped of renown for something that I simply didn't get. Is this a bug or just annoying design? I would think the option to waste renown like that wouldn't be included intentionally.

Annoying design I guess :)

The idea is that an indefinite --but long-- time passes between the end of Chapter 2 and the start of Chapter 4, when you retake the role of Rook, so you're left with very few supplies, no matter how many you bought at the end of Ch2 nor how many you had left at the end of Ch 3...

It would be definitely cooler if (a) you couldn't buy any supplies at Frostvellr at the end of Ch.2 or (b) any supplies you bought there adds to the default 3 days' worth.

boooo that's hella lame

also hella lame, spending 15 renown promoting Fasolt and having him die before I even get to battle

What can I say... ♥♥♥♥ happens :devilskiss: Things get better on the second play-through, if you're don't rage-quit the first!

actually this is my third playthrough

Well, I figured out early enough (e.g. at ~2nd playthru) that Fasolt dies anyway by the end of Ch5, so I didn't spend too much Renown on him...

This chapter really screwed my renown.

well the game is short and meant to be played more than once ;)

that's the worst excuse I've ever read

The easyest way to resolve this would be adding a refund for wasted renown from such situations, like usless food and dying characters. Of course the ratio could differ by difficulty level like this for example:
Easy - 1:1 or 1:2 refund
Normal - 1:2 or 1:4 refund
Hard - 1:4 or no refund

I'm working on fixing this now! I'm going to have it take into account the actual number of days elapsed in chapter 3, and deduct the correct number of supplies.

So was this fixed in the current update?

Yep. Just checked.
