EDIT: HOLY COW LEVEL. Thanks to everyone for the support! Lilith is ranked somewhere in the top 3,000th of pawns online! (To put it in perspective, when I began playing she was somewhere at the 76,000th mark.) Again, a huge thanks to everyone who took her adventuring! :]
Anyone else out there playing this? Very neat game. Very.. mixed reviews about it across the nets, but hey, I'm having fun either way.
It's an open world.. actiony.. RPG-y.. exploration.. concoction. I'm not sure how else to put it. It's a pretty wild blend of all sorts of elements I've seen in games like Monster Hunter, Skyrim, Dark Souls and even Shadow of the Colossus. Aaaand I love all those games.
I don't mind telling you, I'm getting myself murdered left and right, and I seem to have lost my direction very.. very early on in the game. Shortly after a dragon plucked out my heart and ate it, I found myself protecting a cow on the way to a grand capital city in an exceedingly long escort mission, and only barely survived a few goblin attacks. GOBLINS. Afterwards I was deposited in said capital city, and have been left to my own devices. And I don't have the most effective devices, evidently, as I have been ransacked by bandits, eaten by lizardfolk, and tumbled down an ancient ruin on the back of some kind of ogre thing, only to have it land ON TOP OF ME after reaching the ground first. D'oh!
So I've decided to take full advantage of the peculiarly titled "Pawn" system the game offers, wherein you are able to hire party companions from other players the world over. Pawns around your own level don't seem to cost anything to hire, but if you seek out more advanced individuals, you have to pay up for their specialized services. The pawns you can choose from are created by other players, to serve as their own permanent party partner. So basically, you play the game with a character you made (your own avatar), the pawn you create to be their perma-companion, and then two more members that can either be NPCs hired from your singleplayer game, or you can go online and pick from other peoples main pawns. Then, when you elect to dismiss them, they 'return' to the player that created them (though in that players game, they never go missing or anything, you just get informed that other players have been hiring your pawn) with experience, advice and, if you're lucky, a gift from the other player!
But yes, getting to the point! I just wanted to let any other fellow Dogma players know that Lilith the incredibly grumpy sorceress is available if you're in need of crispier foes, as well as the occasional healing spell! She's also.. incredibly well versed with wolf attacks, seeing as how we've fought upwards of three hundred of them by now.
My PS3 ID thinger is RextheLegion, and as far as I know in the pawn riftmabob, you can search for pawns via that ID. So please! Invite her along. Give a rating, if you get the chance! If she slacks off, give her a rock as a gift!
I think, anyway! I've yet to figure out how it all works. But yeah. If anyone else is playing and wouldn't mind tossing me your IDs, I'd be happy to give your party members a front row seat to watch me die in more embarrassing ways.
Take care, all. Thanks for stopping by!
