I love that your game is getting so many questions! It sounds like you need a walkthrough, any plans to make one? I wouldn't mind writing out some tips and such I come across as I play through, if you would like me too. Though I am helping with a few other projects, including my own so it may not be coming too quick.
Oh that would be really cool! Tips from other players are always welcome, its always interesting to see if players use different strategies than my own.
I do plan on releasing a full walkthrough when the game is finished though. The game will be fairly lengthy with plenty of extras, so it'll help people get 100% should they wish to!
A walkthrough would definitely add to it. I like to try to get through stuff but often times get frustrated by not having a psychic link to the originator's mind.
Once more into the fray, I saved the king, got the second shard and went back to the room (got the speech from Oruba nice to have him stay since he's become quite the magician for me) and went to each of the other map pieces and (splat!) nothing happened. The water shard isn't going into any of the others. Is there a map piece somewhere else?
