I think this game has great potential. But rmemeber my opinion is based on the following facts.
I've been through 1/2 of the encounter deck (incluing shadows cards) of one quest, i have been through 1/2 of my sphere deck.
So I have seen in action about 1/8 cards of CS.
What I am afraid whether this game will become "feasible" as 1-man experience. I will seldom find someone who would like to play it with me. In a multiplayer game each player can concentrrate on some aspects of the gameplay. If You are mediocre at some areas is not so crucial if You can assign Your assets properly. Playing it alone forces You to find combination of 3 heroes that stands out multiple areas so much that You can make some mistakes and still win the game.
I will make another attempt in few hours. I shall tell You if I learnt anything on my mistakes, Yet I wander why, when I look ijn the mirror I see one mindless Orc.
I have Polish version of the game and it is called Wladca Pierscieni here
