      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

  1. Where have all my heroes gone!?

    Sounds like I need to do some more looking around in-game. I had no idea I could do anything with the chalice. Thanks everyone for sharing some insight.
  2. I don't know if I'm doing this wrong, or what, but I've restarted the game twice now because I don't have enough heroes to send a full 5 out on missions, which usually results in deaths, which results in less heroes, leaving me with even LESS to send on missions, ad nauseum. I thought that my mistake was taking the focus off of building keeps early in my first game. I'd built a sage's thingy and a crucible for my 2nd and 4th buildings, and immediately retired people to these buildings when they were constructed. I also lost a couple heroes to combat "whoopses" as I encountered monsters I didn't understand. The second game, though, I built four keeps right off the hop, got people breeding, and only built a crucible as the 5th building, and retired an infertile guy there because he wasn't going to be retiring anyplace else. I hadn't lost a single soldier in combat. And still, on my third combat encounter, find myself with only four soldiers to send out. So what should I be doing differently to avoid this? People are starting to die of old age and the babies are not yet old enough to go out and take their place. Any tips to avoid this? Or is my experience kind of the standard? If so, I think something should be tuned differently to avoid this early game slump, as it's very offputting.
  3. I feel like I need to play it again to pick up on all the little hints as to what was *really* going on.
  4. the lumberjack sounds like george clooney

    Wholeheartedly! I actually thought exactly that when I heard him speak. So glad it's not just me.
  5. Hearing the music is the first time I've been really excited to PLAY this game, rather than watch it being made. Some awesome sounds in there.
  6. The game looks beautiful. I can't wait to play it! Keep up the good work, guys.
