i haven't ever beaten the game, much less played through very far, and when i booted it up this time i think i was more interested in ripping sprites.. but then i started getting into it. i got a peice of paper and a pen and i started mapping out where the moongates went. then i got another peice of paper and started writing things down that the random town NPCs were telling me. picked up a bunch of the PCs and started levelling a bunch. found the town with the telescope, looked at the map, took a screenshot and inverted the colors - and printed it out. now i've got pen marks all over it pointing out where some of the stuff is.
what's up with that? i don't remember the last time i played a game where i needed a pen and some paper to figure a bunch of the stuff out. and i'm enjoying it. i'm probably going to play it again after i get home from work. and i'm not using an faq.
