Frayed Knights: Get the Strategy Guide… FREE!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 22, 2011

For some reason, I thought it would be better to have a “strategy guide” for Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon rather than a simple walkthrough.  Wouldn’t it be neat to have a fairly thick document that can be useful for people who just want hints, or actual strategy suggestions, or just more “in-character” information about the world?

Yes, just as with the game, I apparently wanted to make things harder on myself.  And I wasn’t able to get it done in time for release.  And with the updates I’ve been doing on the game, some of the information has gotten stale. So, in preparation for an upcoming update (sorry for the delays, the Day Job has had me in a little bit of crunch, and I’ve also been doing some early work on the sequel), I’m releasing the strategy guide for you now. It includes “interviews” with each of the characters, pamphlets from the adventurer’s guild, lists of items and monsters with their stats, hints for those who just need a little help, and complete solutions and a walkthrough for people who need more than a little help.  It should have something of value for pretty much everybody.

In that light, I decided to make it free. For everyone. Even if you don’t own the game. I don’t care. Much of the information is useful just for the demo. Enjoy the guide!

There is no catch, but I am encouraging folks to sign up for the newsletter if you grab it. This is not mandatory – please don’t put bogus emails in there or anything if you don’t want to sign up (or are already signed up).  *I* think the newsletter is a good thing, and I am working to make it more frequent and informative, to keep you up-to-date on updates, progress on games, strategies, hints, new games becoming available at RampantGames.com, and so forth.

So that’s enough intro. Go grab the Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon official strategy guide!

    Very nice! And for free? Awesome.

    How about an interface facelift ? I’m not playing this whatever you do, because of the humor, but seriously, the interface is an outdated disgrace. It’s like you erased Wiz8 from your mind with bleach. Not that Wiz8 is an ideal, but its miles ahead in comfortable GUI department.

    Not again. Come on enough with the broken record. People say Skyrim’s UI is horrible and yet it’s praised to high heaven.

    Frayed Knights UI is miles ahead of Skyrims and I love both games.

    In any event, thanks for this Jay. It’s downright decent of you to offer this up for free. I never saw Vogel offering me his cluebooks for free. He always made us buy the dang things 🙂

    I love the interviews especially Benjamin and Chloe.

    Q: Your middle name is “Chance?”
    A: Yes. My parents took one. And then there was me

    I don’t get how lines like this can be a deterrent to playing a good game. Or read the strategy guide.
