Just finished the tutorial campaign and checked online to find a new update? Sweet, from my experience I haven't personally noticed any crashes. My only peeve happened to be the story bits. During the in-between time of a chapter the "daughter" of one of my original heroes joins my party. Only the game doesn't seem to recognize the family bond? No mention of their connection appears in the relationship tab, and an event occurred wherein the daughter meets her "mother" at the pub. Not the heroic mother but an off-brand rng character it would seem. Breaks immersion but for sanity's sake, I'll just pretend she is adopted. There is no mention of her mother's heroic deeds in the daughter's history anyway. (That and the mother happened to be infatuated with another female hero.) Continuing on the vulture queen was an interesting event, I am not sure how my character became cursed but I loved this short tidbit of story. The disappointing thing would be how she is never mentioned again, would be interesting if later down the line the game expands on boss characters or villain like enemies that could.. reoccur per se. Like legacy heroes. Fighting the Arch-Gorgon was a little underwhelming. Enemies don't seem all that different except in health-pools, damage, and sheer numbers. (Two giant corrupted bears were less of a hassle than a swarm of the corrupted dear beast. I can slay two bears easy towards the end of the game, but the fear of a character being surrounded with a lack of action points to protect their self was more frightening.) I also noticed that some tidbits of information like abilities were presented well clearly out of game context. An example would be: ThisAbility45.ex or something of the short, but I am sure that is something you are working on as it is beta. One last mention would be the Scratchpad, you can be sure I noticed that it looks almost the same as you presented in a blog post once before. A shame really so maybe a tutorial via youtube or something of the sorts so we could better understand custom content. The idea is lovely and a better UI or explanation of the scratchpad for user made events would make this game fantastic. 

PS: If you haven't seen already but a YouTuber by the name of nookrium has made a video or two on your game. Might be something worth checking out if your interested on a player's experience.

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah family relationships are not all they can be right now, I think we can definitely improve that. Boss monsters also need some design love. We will get to it pretty soon I hope. Scratchpad, and tools in general - if you're interested, there is a section on the wiki about how to use it, but yeah it is pretty.... complex... right now. I'd love to make it into more of a tool that anyone can use, I think it'd be really fun to see all the stories people make. Right now our focus is on bugs and quality of life issues, but we'll start thinking about the next big features soon, and if people are excited about tools, then that's what we'll do! Specifically, in our discord, council members will be able to vote on our next big development priority. I'll have a poll up in a few days if/when things settle down a bit on the bugs front.
