At a check for the last stone head location before the boss’ location is unlocked. Merisiel has fallen and all other characters are at the same location. Kyra failed the check to defeat the stone head. After all damage was resolved, Kyra had one card in her hand (Favor of Shelyn). I was then presented with the choice to either shuffle or place on top the stone head card. Selecting ‘Top’ made the choices disappear for a moment, and then the game crashed. Upon reloading of the game, I was presented with the same decision of ‘Shuffle’ or ‘Top’, and the game will crash a moment after either selection. I cannot click on any other button when I reload and the ‘Shuffle’ or ‘Top’ prompt is on, nor can I quickly click on any button for the moment after I made my selection but before the game freezes and crashes.


I have also uninstalled the game, rebooted the phone, and reinstalled the game, but I am still at the same spot when I resign in. I play this game on my Google Pixel phone, and have tried to get by this spot on my Samsung Galaxy S6 phone, but have the exact same issue.



Is there a way I can quit out of this mission and restart it? I just want to get by this spot, as I am pretty far in the story.


Thank you in advance.

​Ill be taking look into this to see what is going one. I was going to take a look at your save but that PFID is incorrect. Ill need your use name that precedes it or your PFID number which can be found going to options, then going to settings. The PFID will be along the bottom of that window.

​In the meantime you can try deleting the party, then rebuilding the party with the same characters. You'll be able to resume progress from that mission.

I found the PFID - EF9BF9954AE44798


Deleting and recreating the party pulled me out of that mission, and I am able to play the mission from the beginning which solved my problem. Thank you!
