Fine, I admit that I have overblown that. This is what is changed in the release candidate for the next version (story spoiler ahead):
Spoiler:
As a side effect, together with a small change in LotI it should mean an end to all minor holes in the beginning of LotI.

EDIT: Published version 0.1.2. removing the controversy. Enjoy.

"THE BOOK" in scenario with robots is a lot like a real book as it is displayed in many games. It could be a help function a diary or a compendium. I would suggest to look at it.

About the geared picture: What I would really like is a information how geared a unit actually is. Meaning: I would like to see what equipment types are still missing.

and thats how cenzorship in kapitalistic world works!
(I was really disturbed by the original story, now I am sad that you have changed it. The story was disturbing and a bit mean, but that was always its way...

Things like Scenario with Robots are going deep into the lua stuff and lua is not much suited for campaigns. It would make the code quite weird and hard to read (because of swapping two programming languages), for not much profit.

That would require a deep rewrite of the code and I don't think I wanna do it because it would cause a lot of bugs and a lot of pain. When you pick an item, you see if the unit has a free slot for it or not.

So I guess you feel why I added that little piece of controversy with grave implications. Still, I am not very inclined to revert it...

did anyone report the strange behaviour of the elves in "Krux the saviour"? they didnt attack the orcs at all, and were only useable as meatshields

then there was a bug with incarcerating a unit whose hitpoints where reduced to 1HP due to whirlwind (wasnt directly hit) -> ther was no option to incarcerate the unit (when you go to the town with the opposing noble as mayor)
I am a Ghost: I drain the life energy from other people to survive and am hated/feared by regular people. Non-regular people don't like me either though.

I find some of the missions somewhat confusing. Sometimes I skim through (or mistakenly double tap) the conversations, and I find missions like find your father (where was that again) or return to Fowleri (who or what is that)
If you had directions in the mission it would be helpful (go to father NE) etc.,

When i try to buy the Iron Armour of the friendly General in Strych, i get scammed (the trader sells me instead the Iron Armour of Throns)

typo on Agrippas Journal – Investigation on the useability of Walking Corpses „...unrelated to the soul that left THEN,...“

necromancy works for agrippa even though hes a ghost.

when Lucretia dies after you gave read the journal, they still wonder if she had been created to make someone immortal, but they know now already why and how she was created, so it makes no sense to wonder about it now

I wanted to prevent them from attacking the wolves, but accidentally prevented them from attacking the orcs.

It did not work with whirlwind at all, in any place.

Ah, sorry, wrong item number.

Thanks.

This is intentional - he has his body nearby and he tries to possess it to help himself with fighting you. But it looks pretty weird, he'll be better without it.

You did not get what that message was supposed to mean, so it was most likely badly written. Reformulated it.

I'd like to know more why you have not understood it. The father is at the same place all the time and at the beginning, there is no other way to go. The 'Return to Fowleri' demand just wants you to return to the place where you have just been, simply to confirm that you are ready to go.
And you should read the dialogues.

Played the campaign in medium difficulty. Quite good especially towards the end. I liked the RPG kind of play a lot. Did have fears if this would also stack up humongous battles towards the end (I played LotI during it's intial days, remember waiting for last couple of(or may be more) chapters). :). I played rather fast, didn't notice many bugs, but must say that I never(except in the fight against Marlyn) opted(had) to recruit either yet didn't cheat.

So you say that it could be harder?

May be not. One of the reason I had it easy was, acantha with some items attained around 10mp,17x6 attack and regeneration , so she could scout around on her own. Need not happen with all.
