So, about this party member system this year…

I’m not at all a fan of this proposed card game (for EVERY PAGE) that they’re trying to introduce. It seems way too cumbersome, and the cost for the party members is way too high for the chance of a bonus they give you. The last two years I’ve played this, if you hired someone to your party, you paid for them to join, paid upkeep when you rested (or released them), and you kept their skills and bonuses PERMANENTLY for EVERY page.

This year, not only are you still having to pay for the party members just as before, but now you have what looks like a 50/50 chance at activating their skills and a tiny chance at activating their special stat. Not to mention, they can take damage and die.

Again, not a fan of this. Seems too complex.

I don’t want to play a card game along with my dice game. So, true to the nature of this calendar – which has always said play it the way you want even if that means making up your own rules – I’ve decided to drop this card game and go back to the old way of paying for a party member and keeping their skill permanent.

However, I feel like having a permanent stat boost is too much of a benefit. So as to compromise, I paid 10 amber for the Monk party member (I dropped his cost to being the same as the others because I felt his was higher only due to his HP, which is a system I’m discarding). I will add the permanent Athlete ability but not take the stat bonus of +1 defense.

Having thought this through, this is the only way I wish to engage with this wonky party system. Especially since having hirelings in the previous years was never a huge focus for me.

Welcome aboard, bunny Monk!
