    Sometimes it does. There is a random ambush event in Norway that gives xp(got it only on my first playthrough). In Britain when you are attacked by wolves in the map it also gives xp.

    We uploaded the patch to them 2 days after the patch went up on steam. We'll poke them again, to make sure they get on it.

    I'm having zero issues with the current (1072) GoG patch, but it's always nice to be up to date. Loving the game so far, it's like Blackguards and BG1 had a Love child that grew up to take on base building on the side.

    Ok, just finished my first playtrough. Questions:

    Show Spoiler
    Is the option to turn on my chosen king and loot his shit cut content? Because I WAS assembling an army on the Isle, but the option to invade never showed up. Cleaver kept telling me we're not ready.

    - Does any companion other than Nefja and Ketil have a personal quest?
    - Why do I have a relationship bar with Mercia? Cut content? Also, Jelling? LOL...

    Ending was ok I guess. Chose the prettiest waifu and helped the English. Time to go for that max difficulty run with a party full of custom fully optimized murder machines. :P

    - you need max Power to invade. There might be other conditions, it's been months since I played.

    - if you follow the Northrumbia quest line far enough you'll need to do a negotiation with Mercia with high enough persuasion/correct dialogue choices can convince them to help invade Northrumbia in exchange for half the spoils. I think you need to help the Mercians when you first arrive at England in order to unlock this option.

    Anyone know why it takes so much time for GoG to patch the game up to date? Last game version they have is from December 1st 2017. Avonaeon ?

    We poked them, but haven't gotten any reply back. We'll poke them again. I'm sorry it's taking so long.

    It seems your poking and prodding produced results - the game is finally updated on GoG.

    There was much rejoicing :)

    This game is severely underrated. The OST is great too.

    EDIT: Important question: I know that the game has a time limit, but is it enough to finish the game in a sensible amount of time?

    Is there any way to change/mod the lit up tiles beneath characters? That blue with the ornamental borders is just ugly as fuck. It was similarly ugly in Conquistador too.

    I am only seeing the regular version which also lists the Blood-Ice free DLC. Trying to reach the Digitial Deluxe version link redirects me to Steam's main page.

    I can access the OST+artbook page, but it has no price listed in my currency (Polish Zloty - zł/PLN).

    EDIT: images

    For comparison, here is a screenshot from Siege of Dragonspear OST page - the price is listed:

    We've made it so it should hopefully show up as soon as Steam approves it.

    What's a better build for a leadership/witchcraft archer:

    1 strength, 4 endurance, 4 finesse, 10 perception, 10 sense

    or

    1 strength, 1 endurance, 7 finesse, 10 perception, 10 sense

    Thanks!

    I regret getting this game. The combat is great, the writing is okay and the quests have multiple solutions.

    But there are too many crates. No, I can't not check them all. Fuck you.

    Yeah after all that crate and barrel searching even seeing some in other rpgs triggered the ptsd for a number of months after finishing Vikings. Still my retail goty of 2017.
