    I can't speak to the balance of darkness now, but I didn't notice a significant difference overall during EA. I tried a dark run with some new recruits, and lost a couple to death, and some more...

    The mortality debuffs were new to me with the main release, but I didn't play since the corpses update, so am not sure if those were around. It definitely adds an interesting element, and think it...

    I missed the question you tossed out, DevinSmoth. One piece of advice I would give for the Hamlet is to focus on the cheap versions of stress reduction (Drink and Meditation) early on, until they are...

    Yeah, honestly... I love that I have to approach every boss with a ton of trepidation. Even knowing the right strategies for success isn't always enough. I lost 3 of my best heroes to the Hag when...

    There are several curios I just don't ever interact with because of that. I just cruise on by bookshelves every time.

    For me, the thing that has been crucial is DoTs and Positioning. Killing an enemy with a DoT will leave no corpse behind, so that's something to be aware of as well. If want the corpse, finish them...

    That's pretty much how things go in the beginning for me too. I hire a lot of fodder, build up resources, and find heroes with good starting traits, while removing the rest. If you think about it,...
