All of the other fights are optional, but they can get you neat stuff that will make your life easier when fighting truly becomes unavoidable.

* TooAwesomeToUse: "Good" items are actually manufactured by the player via uses of feats, so the player has to consciously make the normally "too awesome" items.

Sure, there might be a Seraphim Whiteleaf in that garden, or something really awesome in that chest that you don't have a key to, or that monster might obliterate you if you don't trap it...but what if there's something else that you'd rather use your feats on? Then, before you know it, you're done exploring and ready to go to sleep and you still have more than half your feats left.

You play as the Wanderer, and enigmatic figure who has come to the Montfort village to solve a mystery; apparently, most of the inhabitants disappeared overnight. He decides to explore the village in search of clues, soon discovering an ApocalypticLog of sorts by a "prophet who has fallen from grace". Shortly after, he realizes that reality is warping around him. Disturbing things appear out of nowhere, other, more familiar things disappear, and all the while, time is ticking away...
