And as time went on he was not certain to go through with the plan or kill Alexander as a sort of mercy.[/spoiler]Alexander ticking Mannanan off in KQIII could then easily tip the scales as his birthday approaches. He'd decide to kill him then and there, justifying it as a mercy for the boy anyway since if he were to let him live, [spoiler]he would be forced to give him over to Shadrack's plan.[/spoiler]

The storyline seems like it is starting to piece together and some of the puzzles were really challenging/[spoiler]I personally thought the candle puzzle and the chessboard ones took the longest because I didn't look at the slab to realize it is both red and white lol[/spoiler] But all in all it was really well done and a lot of fun to play!
QuoteAs far as getting the strength and voice are concerned, I stand by what I said before: the books in the bookstore give you very clear indications of what needs to be done to obtain both. Once you read the stories, you apply them to your situation.

Quote from: darthkiwi on April 23, 2011, 12:59:19 PMIt's true that reading the book gives me the solution right off the bat, and that, if you read the zodiac pages from the four winds and the book, the solution becomes obvious. But that's not a logical chain of reasoning: that's just following arbitrary instructions. You might get to the right solution, but you have no idea why that was the right solution, which makes the puzzle kind of artificial.
