[quote=Niveous]I’m nearing the end of Annwn and ended up here precisely because of this. It’s an enjoyable game, and I’ll write a review in the right thread when I’ve got more of a chance. Specifically, I caught up to a choice where I could use either of two missable qualities, or I could give up some stats. Now, I assume that these two are rare occurrences from grinding music and wits (possibly brain), which is fine. What is annoying is not knowing if I’m incorrect (because I’ll be practicing those skills where there isn’t a reward), or if this far into the game they are still available. Of course I’ve missed some story, that’s the nature of making choices. I’m just a little frustrated that I don’t know if what seems to still be something I can achieve is now not achievable.
I’m not sure if cartogramancy is the third missable or not, but the interesting thing with that one is that I had opportunities to use it early in the game, but did not receive cards that would let me finish the quest for cartogramancy until mid-game when I had already passed some opportunities by. I saw it as kind of a way to get out of choosing a faction, since one event let me choose between the cops, the criminals, and cartogramancy. But the game kept telling me to pick a side, so I did that instead. Was that path intended to be a third choice, or do you have to choose a side to finish the game? Was I just unlucky with the cards?
Some qualities I’m not sure if I missed the opportunity to use, or if they’re just achievements. Friend of a Bard, for example, I didn’t see a use for, though that could just be the way things fell. Anyway, I’ll probably finish up later today. It’s a beautiful world you’ve crafted.[/quote]

@Niveous. Thanks for the detailed feedback! On missable qualities – If you happened to come across one of those missable qualities (which cost you something to attain), you would have a chance to use it to get out of the qualities toll. But the not knowing how/if to get them is clearly an issue. thanks!
I had meant for the game to be fully playable without picking a side, but easier if you choose one. I added the servant guy telling you to pick a side because of some feedback I received where people weren’t sure what to do next – but I may change that, since he’s kinda annoying. :) Were you able to complete the Cartogromancy quest?
Friend of a Bard is a rare quality which has yet to be used… but soon!
