Oh, somehow the other guide didn't show up in the guides preview panel. There it said "1 available". Thanks a lot!
Hanni  [author] Mar 3 @ 3:16pm 
Thank you! I know, the guide is full of spoilers - maybe this one suits you better! :)
NeverwinterMoon Mar 3 @ 3:02pm 
Great work! But, in my honest opinion, it would make sense to make a separate guide just hinting on how to get the achievements without spoiling the game plot. Maybe mention just the missable achievements and pointing out the key points that could lead to different outcomes. As of now, I am hesitant about reading this guide, as it would clearly spoil my playthrough. I dislike reading walkthroughs, but I am very interested in reading hints on missable achievements. I am pretty sure I am not the only one with such a preference.
