Here’s a basic introduction to an important new mechanic!
I love how ductile this project has become, in just some days of work something completely new and well integrated with the game around it can be added. Shit’s fun.
In the chest you can only find the most basic components to conjure a new friend, but just how convenient is that?!
Whether you want it to become another soldier in your army or a fuck-buddy, whether you want to adopt it or to resurrect it into another race, everything is already possible out-of-the-box!
Needless to say, Necromancy will play an important role in the Skeleton Princess’ route I’m currently working on (“I will (not) marry you“), there’ll be time to talk about it once I’ll have dealt with its next step!
Two new items, not counting the various kinds of bones you will find in dungeons, have been added for this new mechanic:
The Death Not
The most basic tool you will need in order to get into Necromancy! Combine up to 7 bones and try to conjure different kinds of skeletons!
At least 1 Skull (any kind will do), 1 Ribcage and 2 arms (arms can be made by specific bones, called “Skeletal Arms“, or by other pieces) are required in order to start!
Every time you conjure a skeleton, though, the Kingdom’s Life Force drops a little, the triumph of death over life becomes a little closer.
Oh! You will need to sign the page of the Death Not with the name of your new companion too!
This little tool makes it much easier to gather bones!
Just equip it and you will have a chance to drop bones together with the normal loots you get from monsters!
That’s not the only way to get them though, except killing skeletons I’ve added several locations where you can find the bone parts you’ll need, and there’s also a HUGE dungeon where you can farm them freely!
Lastly, look forward to next week.
