Anyone interested in doing a little testing of Lord of Terror?
It's a Second Guess System based Diablo inspired dungeon crawler. SGS generally does bare bones single page solo journaling games, but with each release, I've expanded that scope- from duo games to rudimentary character creation and more.
@kennon This was my first time ever hearing about a "journaling game" before so I decided to give it a try and I died during the 3rd Moment (I blame my d20 for killing me 🤣).
I liked it though, going to definitely give it another go because I love the simplicity and openness.
1 question, when it says "mark one of the Advancements listed" does that mean the next one in order, or do I select whichever one of the options I choose?
Thanks again for introducing me to solo RPGs!
@KuJoe you can mark whichever of the advancements that you'd like.
And yeah... I do worry that it's at a bit more of a Dark Souls lethality than Diablo at the moment, so that's one of the things I want to test!
@kennon So attempt number 2 was the opposite experience. I just hit level 4 and still on Depth 1.
A Crusader with the first 2 advancements is a bit OP and can level up pretty quickly since 10 of the 16 enemies can be killed without taking damage at Depth 1 (excluding Features).
Also, the enemy spots for 15 and 17 are empty, unsure if that's by design.
@KuJoe Hmmm.... May need a way to make bosses a bit more likely or possibly allow people to skip straight to the boss. Maybe something like spend 3 or 4 XP to go straight to the boss for that level?
