So I visited the Blue Kingdom after doing most of what I thought I could do in the Reach. Enemies are harder than expected and I can kill them but since I can’t repair my hull at Sky Barnet (yet?) I die before I can figure out the whole being invisible thing.
Next captain spawns in Blue Kingdom but with one of my weapons taken away and now my stats now aren’t high enough to equip my other weapon so I have no offense. There’s no way to buy any new weapons I can actually equip, and I need papers to get back to the Reach. I manage to make it to the white well with minimal encounters (by sheer luck?) but again, with no way to repair, I die whilst looking for where I can buy gemstones for bribing.
Third captain, I’m given a crummy pea shooter, still useless for killing anything here. I manage to find and barely afford gemstones but I get killed before I can get back to the white well.
Now I’m all the way back to level three and have no money, so what the hell am I supposed to do? I don’t feel like I was initially underequipped (best weaponry and armor available in the Reach), just a lot of enemies between me and completing whatever quest is needed to unlock repairs. But then the game took all my weaponry, and with enemies than can spawn in EVERY possible route there is NOWHERE I can go without dying. Now I’m massively underlevelled and can’t afford anything and even the difficulty options don’t look like they would help with anything (aim isn’t the problem, just damage and health…) Right now I guess I could sell my ship and try a gemstone run again in hopes that out of pure luck I encounter no enemies on the way but I’m not sure how much is left to do before I can finally repair my ship and feel semi-safe… if the game just let me back into the Reach I would have to replay like 90% of what I’ve played so far but at least I wouldn’t lose everything, but since I’m instead trapped in this strange uncivilized monster-infested "Kingdom" I’m just stuck?
