I play naked brutality, randy random and merciless on permadeath. Needless to say most of my games don’t last long, but i love the challenge.
In my last game my solo guy got attacked by a hungry bear and managed to kill him with just his knife (+1 deadfall trap), but he still collapsed from the pain. I waited anxiously to see if he would recover on his own and when he did i changed his title to the ‘The Revenant’. He got a scratch scar and made himself a pair of pants from the bearskin.
For me this game is like a book.
When i read a book i use my imagination to draw the characters and places using the author’s descriptive writing and i can ‘watch’ the drama and action unfold in my head.
When i play this game, I find myself doing the same thing. The character traits and the story teller events create a story and i can image the live action movie behind the games’ pixels.
I definately recommend.
