So . Entertainment.

Acquire a mirror suitable for casting KIN and use it if you encounter the Despair snake.


Hot snake-on-snake action. How did they sneak this one past the ratings people?

6 Day NBAS "not possible?"

Using the Fast Travel glitch, I've finished a NBAS run in 6 days BUT at the end it says I "may get in undetected" and the merchant worries that someone is using the Beacons. Then carrying over to 4, I don't get the NBAS opening.

Something similar happened to my previous playthrough, I started over, but took longer playing.

I _think_ the game just puts you into a All Serpents At Least One Beacon ending if you are too fast; since it isn't possible without glitching. I'm at work now, I will test this tonight.

Edit: Nope, that wasn't it. I didn't activate BEACONS but I screwed around with the blue crystal in the past of the serpent pit and the ruined hill, maybe that did it. Guess I'll try again.

I can top that. In Sorcery 4, use the monarch oil on yourself when the Lynch Bug is approaching you. It will...interact with you.

Touching any crystal will invalidate NBAS, including the one at the statue's foot on the Xamen Road.

Now when I try to reach the lake area I have no clue how to get there, I tried pointing the beacon towards both the bridge by the mountain and the bridge in the forest as well as in between to rebuild the walkway with no luck. This is the only beacon I have been able to activate.

Any idea on what I have missed?
You should be able to focus that beacon on the entire bridge and climb up at the western pillar. When you pass under it you can look up and see the handholds, which will give you the choice to climb.

You have missed a lot by not activating the beacons in the first and second areas, though, because in addition to restoring the past, touching the gem will allow you to teleport between them and revisit areas you can't otherwise get back to. You can climb the first beacon using the gripweed, and focus it on the bridge to cross easily into the second area. Then investigate the rubble to find a blue gem, teleport back to the first beacon, then refocus it on the rubble and teleport to the restored beacon.

I recommend trying to get to the end at least once on your own, but afterward check out this guide. There's a very comprehensive Google Doc as well.

If you refuse to draw your sword at the woman at all and tell Ca-Oth you're not sacrificing anyone, it states you defied his will in the ending summary. Considering getting his blessing has you worried in 4 that you even considered it, this is interesting.

Is this playable without me having to buy the other games? And is it fairly long (good game time)?

I saw it's on sale for 99 cents and thought I might pick it up. I got Road Not Taken and was extremely disappointed so I'm hoping this one isn't the same. I saw some bad reviews explained how the game was aimless and hard to figure out. Most of the good reviews were players of the previous games so it was hard to find any review from someone who only played this installment. Any recommendations? Thanks!

As for being playable without the other games, yes it is but it's 3/4 of the way through a continuing story.

Saying the game is aimless sounds like an opinion on the story which personally I think is wrong.

I'm not sure how someone can say Sorcery! is hard to figure out but it might be best for you to google a gameplay video and decide for yourself.
