Gromnir Posted May 11 Share Posted May 11 The Lamplighters League Dev Diary #7 – Allies, Supplies, & Customization The Undrawn Hand is a deck of cards that has the uncanny ability to change a person’s fate. It is the signature relic of the Lamplighters, filled with cards that look blank when drawn but show themselves for Lamplighters that tempt fate in service of the fight against evil. With it, you will create builds unique to your friends playing Lamplighters, with opportunities to unlock the most potent of combinations. The Lamplighters League Dev Diary #8 – The Race for the Tower If any of the three Clocks fills completely and hits the final Breakpoint, that's game over, for you and for the world as you know it. But there's still a ghost of a chance to pull things back: a Last Stand mission you can run to stall them for a short time. The stakes are high, though. Last Stands are difficult, and failure means losing the world. ... am wondering why/when the card "feature" became popular in rpg and tactical rpgs 'cause is not the first recent title am having seen cards as gameplay. also, while am ordinarily opposed to quest timers, am recognizing how the three clocks in lamplighters is effective keeping score o' the strategic elements o' the game and therefore at least has a purpose. also, the lamplighters clocks ain't hidden or arbitrary as is the fail in many games. even so, there is a tendency for "game over" time management aspects to be poor implemented or unnecessarily punishing, existing only to create a layer o' difficulty for games which would otherwise be too ez. am appreciating the informative developer diaries and we remain optimistic 'bout the title. HA! Good Fun!
