I noticed there had been a lot of updates since I last played so I decide to start over again, play the game a little differently. The perma death option was the first thing I noticed so figured why the hell not?
Was playing super cautious starting out but got to feeling comfortable after about level 4 when I got my first power up skill point. Was wanting to put all my skill points into critical hits to make a super slugger but for some reason when i was just clicking through all the menus I go and select the dodge skill instead for nine points in block, all by accident. At the time I was thinking I was just doing a regular level block upgrade for just three points but only realized what I had done a moment too late.
Crap this means I got to start all over because of course I did not have a saved game to reload being perma death and all. But I figured all right lets just go all the way and make a super fast dodger instead of a slugger and work our way up to getting the taunt skill. This would have been a character I never would have started intentionally so maybe this will be fun after all.
Around level 8 things are going nice, had a life time supply of bread to keep health up steadily and just got my second dodge skill bonus. I discover the town of Stoutford, this area had not been part of the game since I last played so was excited to see something new. Things should be perfectly safe while in town right?
My first surprise was seeing the undead wandering around but no problem, I could take them out pretty easy. Then I go and discover the tavern.
Those of you that do not know what is coming up should stop reading right now because of the most exciting spoiler in the game is coming up, especially if you are playing perma death!
