Update 2.1 now available!

Hello everyone,

Today we're releasing the 2.1 update for episodes 1 and 2 of Heroes of Legionwood, which updates the game's database to handle the upcoming Episode 3 content and makes save file importing to Episode 3 possible. In addition, we've also added a handful of new content to previous episodes, with the intention of tweaking the game's pacing to reflect recent design decisions in Episode 3.

This update adds the following changes to the game:

  • The game now tracks certain choices which will affect Episode 3's ending. You don't have to start a new game for this - upon loading Episode 3, the game should apply these flags retroactively.
  • Several pieces of lore and dialogue scenes in Episodes 1 and 2 have been tightened up to clarify certain story elements which will be important later.
  • Episode 2 now has a working Quest Journal. You will, however, have to start a new game for this.
  • The Scouting talent now grants greater visibility in dark dungeons. A few dungeons in Episodes 1 and 2 have also been made dark to add more usefulness to this skill.
  • Gaius and Astrid are now romanceable to opposite gender player characters (requires positive influence with them first). Additionally, the perk progression of all four romance paths has been slightly tweaked.
  • NPC companion reactions have been significantly tweaked. It should be much harder to keep your entire party happy (but still possible, for particularly diplomatic players)
  • Gaius' portrait has been slightly edited to better reflect his age. He's only supposed to be 39-40 years old!

This update should be applied automatically next time you launch the game. It covers both Episode 1 and Episode 2, so you should (hopefully) only have to download one set of files.

Episode 3 Devblog #2: 2.0 Update and Revised Talents

Hello again heroes.

This update is kind of a devblog and patch notes in one as it's time to go into detail about Episode 3's overhauled Talents system - something we're also porting back into Episodes 1 and 2 with today's 2.0 patch.

So, as I just said, the Talents system has undergone a considerable overhaul in End of Days. This is to facilitate the emphasis on different quest solutions in Episode 3 (as detailed by last week's devblog) and add a little more depth to character growth between levels 20-30, where skill trees are mostly already filled out and options for spending AP were previously lacking. The main change you'll notice is that your character's Talents now have multiple ranks:

In contrast to Episodes 1 and 2, where Talents were pretty much a binary flag (either a character has it, or they don't) the game's most used Talents now come in three consecutive rank: Basic, Advanced, and Master, representing increasing levels of aptitude. Speech, Subterfuge, Mercantilism, Herbalism and Alchemy have all been split into these three ranks (Knowledge, Medicine, Awareness and Scouting remain unchanged) and how they work has been drastically changed.

  • Speech now gives your character a base 50% chance of successfully persuading an NPC (previously, you always succeeded no matter what), with the Advanced rank bringing this up to 75% and Master making it succeed all the time.
  • Subterfuge now works similarly to Speech, giving you a base 50% chance of disabling traps or finding hidden passages (and it's now possible to fail and permanently break the trap/passage mechanism), with Advanced and Master ranks increasing this chance to 75% and 100% respectively.
  • Mercantilism now grants you a 25% discount when purchasing items from shops, with Advanced increasing this to 50% (the previous base game value). Where Mercantilism is really different, however, is with the Master rank, which expands the inventory of most shops in the game and unlocks rare, special items for sale.
  • Herbalism works the same at its Basic level. However, the Advanced rank causes more harvest spots to appear in the game, and Master makes the rarer herbs (such as Harp Leaf and God's Mint) much easier to find.
  • Finally, Alchemy also works the same at its Basic level, but becomes much more useful at the Advanced and Master levels, which expand the number of mixable items and reduce their costs by 50%, respectively.

Needless to say, these changes allow for many more options during character creation and give your characters something to strive for outside of combat, which brings us to the 2.0 patch. In order to maintain consistency between all three episodes, we're also implementing this system in End of Days and Resurrection, along with brand new and revised skill checks to make use of the new ranks. Your characters in the first two episodes can now access the Advanced and Master ranks of these talents, and they'll actually unlock new content in the game.

About This Game


Heroes of Legionwood is an episodic fantasy RPG in set in a world on the brink of annihilation. Combining elements of modern western RPGs with the style and presentation of a classic JRPG, this is a journey no self respecting role player should miss!

It has been 100 years since the world ended. Human civilization has been devastated by a malevolent force known only as the Darkness and only the last remnants of humanity remain. Playing the role of Locke, a young adventurer determined to save his people, you'll discover a world where your choices have consequences and every victory comes with a price. Can you discover the origin of the Darkness and stop it once and for all, or will you succumb to its influence, dooming Legionwood to destruction?

Heroes of Legionwood consists of three separate arcs: Age of Darkness, Resurrection and End of Days. Either installment can be played on its own, but all three of them will combine to form one epic adventure.
