Hey there! I'm loving the game so far. I just wanted to report on a bug, plus a suggestion.

It happenned to me on a run with dark priest + the girl, after the tree area, once I reached the chained dead man, after interacting and the dialogue telling you there is nothing else to do in the dungeon, I tried interacting with the man again and a dialogue with D'arcy (who was not on my party) played out where she basically gasped and mourned over a complete black screen (I'm guessing this is a bug, I was really puzzled when I saw it happen).

On a another topic, I'd like to suggest perhaps a way to prevent multiple copies of a same book to be obtained during one playthrough. It's really annoying to get two torn pages, or two Anatomia or other types of books that are of no use once you got one of them already. It feels like a wasted opportunity to get something good, and libraries are rather rare in the game. So, ideally they would be non-repeatable. Of course that wouldn't apply to empty scrolls or books of enlightenment.

Keep up the good work!

Or five pipes....

Good points! I'll continue tweaking the loot most likely. And thanks letting me know of the bug! It was a new one for me!

Mhhh... the problem with only getting 1 copy of each is that there are only certain books/items in the game and what you suggested would make the game easier. Meaning if you are lucky you could have all important books after lvl 3 or so. Might be worth suggesting when there are more books (like lorebooks or more craftingbooks) in the game.

I mean we can debate if the game isnt already hard enough but still^^

Yeah this is definitely something to think about. I already tried balance this looting issue with the book merchant in the ancient city. So you can still buy some important books if your luck is miserable otherwise. But this doesn't remove the tedious aspects of loot. 

An alternative possibility is to simply reduce the chance of doubling up on books.

But like Schneeli said, it would ruin the balance somewhat if you got all the good books for sure. The reduction of the doubling could be considered once there are more books in general. Some books (like the cook book) could easily be divided into 2 separate books to increase their numbers.
