Added DiffLines:

* ContestedSequel: The original is generally the most well liked game of the series; the sequels tend to be very divisive for [[CuttingOffTheBranches cutting off just about every possible branch]]. Both have received a lot of flak for canonically making the Hero of Oakvale LawfulGood. The Hero of Bowerstone was made canonically male and also LawfulGood by the third game, and novels continuing the story after the end of the third game also made the Hero of Brightwall canonically male ''and'' LawfulGood once again, which alienated more than a few fans who preferred playing as a woman and/or a not entirely good aligned Hero.

the slaughter of Oakvale. Subverted though, by the fact Hero; you can do countless horrible deeds in each game and make everyone fear you, but you can also become a good again.person again very easily.

*** I honestly started figuring that it was made especially ''to'' throw you off as a sort of difficulty thing, the higher your rank the more he says it, the more he says it the more you mix up, but if you're good at it like I eventually got to be you can make ''millions'' right off the bat, so it's worth it, right?... no its not I nearly killed my self because of it and literally, not figuratively, ''literally'' had nightmares because of the stupid things!



** I always found it adorkable and loved, pet, and gave him a treat for it because he's just so cute!(I love dogs way to much)

Added DiffLines:

** In the first game shop prices are based on supply and demand. If they have a lot of a certain item, they'll sell that item for less and pay more. If they have few, they'll sell for more and pay less. It is trivially easy to break this system and start gaining hundreds and eventually thousands of gold per interaction as soon as you enter Bowerstone for the first time. 1 gold to buy a carrot. 3 gold from selling it. A profit of 2 gold is nothing, but if you're sell 100 of them? That's 200 gold profit for literally no work. Buy up the other stuff as well and it'll go even faster. 7 gold to buy meat, 12 gold for selling. 5 gold profit. Once you get enough start in on selling gemstones and you'll have officially stopped having to care about your money problems. Bonus points, because every interaction in which you make a profit gains you a small amount of skill experience.
