  1. Have you been to jail? What did you do to get there? Have you tried to escape it?

Since it appears nobody else has escaped, I will say I have, several times, but not sure if I should keep escaping, to see if there is any reward for that (any hints on that bers?) or just wait out the ever increasing sentence.

well I did what you are suggesting also but I did not really feel that that is escaping since you can only leave and get thrown back in when you go back.

I just thought if I escaped enough times, there may be some reward for showing them the weakness in their prison system. :)

No

  1. Did you manage to prove to Rayanus that he is himself?

Yes

  1. Have you helped Domina to return to business? How did you convince Rayanus?

Yes, I resent to say what pressure I used, but it's vulgar, if he does what he's suspected off.

  1. Have you tried the Domina's girls? Have you tried to work at Domina's? Which client have you got?

Yes, No, Never any at that will stay that way.

1. I have not solved all the quests yet and am still working on them - I like that I have to return to Karfaree again and again to progress them. I've been playing in Karfaree for a couple of weeks now.

2. I haven't skipped or failed any yet. I made the salad, performed in the opera, helped Porcius with his bunch of flowers, convinced Rayanus of his identity, got Zoryana's box and Domina's is open for trade once more. I have partially completed the zoo, Jack of Swords' party and access to the black market.

3. I bribed the guard.

4. From the cook and from the opera but I'm not allowed in as I'm not well enough dressed :)

5. I made the Breeze salad.

6. Not yet!

7. Yes - it was great fun and I received a mask. I was worried about the opera as my computer has no sound card - thank you for making it possible to complete the quest without sound.

8. No

9. I paid for it and Zoryana now floats between my towns.

10. Not yet but I think it is only a matter of time!

11. No - the colosseum is still covered with fog and Hextor tells me the contest is over until next year.

12. No

13. Yes

14. Yes - I fed Rayanus to convince him and mentioned his scar and voice.

15. Yes - I spent a lovely time with the science nerd and her yeti in room number three :) Domina won't give me a job yet but I am working on that.

16. Yes

17. Yes but there might be more I still have to discover.

18. Only at Domina's House of Pleasure and it went well!

19. Just the lovely lady and the yeti in room 3!

20. I have helped out the zoo keeper but will need to wait until I have a larger range of animals before I can fill his cages.

21. I have gambled there four times and once I won a Trommel.

22. I've not found Lucy yet but looking forward to meeting her and getting a new quest.

23. I very much like Karfaree - it feels like a real city. You can easily get lost there and there are so many people to talk to, it is immersive and great fun!

24. Great - we are all adults and lots of the conversations made me laugh. I think it's pretty amazing and am very impressed :)

25. I've found over half of them and each time I visit, I find one or two more. It is hard to find the hidden objects because the scene is so busy but I really enjoy hunting for them.

26. I suppose the ones I've solved were the easiest for me - they were hard enough to be challenging and I am looking forward to solving the others.

27. I like the conversations - if anything, I think some more non-linearity would be fun.

28. Love the characters and please introduce more if possible :)

29. All other quest locations have been great but they pale in comparison with Karfaree. It is the one quest location that I have to return to again and again to achieve different goals - fanatastic job Enkord team!

30. As said above, I think it is great. I love that there is a location with interweaving quests and characters - just like a real city - if you are going to change it, please make it bigger.

31. No

32. I will have to wait and see!

33. None

34. I have not beaten it yet and am looking forward to revisiting until I do.

Question about Cheeki-Breeki quest : 

Is been now almost 1 month since Bratishka is telling me "Snitches get stitches"!  My quest is still open, the last entry said that I've decided to report to Rayanus about Bratishka... But Rayanus is not giving me any option to make my report . I am level 47 now, with high stats in all the categories ( I've checked with different combinations of stats : level 15 at least)  . So, if it is a question of stats , maybe we can get a hint about this quest please? Cause is really frustrating to not advance since 1 month ( and very boring to check each time I get new stats to see if something changed) .Or am I searching the solution in the wrong direction? 

Could be a bug, same for the opera? 

General question : Did someone succeed / fail  this quest after Bratiskha decided to tell " Snitches get stitches" ? 

Thanks

Reply to Arya :

I got in by killing the worms in the cave, they are not easy but also not to hard. I am still working on the survey but wanted to add to this talk about the way through the caves.

Dont forget that today you are the most advanced player in the game :-) I was speaking about the casual players ...

I got in through the cave and only been around 3 weeks.  The moving rock is the hint.

I would like to suggest that Black Market in Karfaree may be refresh once every 1-2 weeks for example in order to allow to level 50 players to exchange their useless figurines for blueprints... Curently, after 2 or 3 trades the black market is completely useless.

The only thing really to add is that I got very very bored clicking on all the towns people to find out information.  Lots of the quests seemed to require this which very quickly became tedious. (Or maybe I just did not discover a better way of gaining the info) If that could be reduced I would certainly enjoy K way more.  It is a good location and I appreciate all the hard work that has gone into making it, and some of the storylines are very amusing.  So I persisted with most of it ...

Months later afrer Karfaree was introduced and I would like to bump this thread and ask players to submit the survey thouse who didn't initially. And even thouse who did could do it again as I am sure by now they have different experience with it.

Also I would like to ask for any specific impressions not covered by survey - it's a good time to sum things up and it will greatly help us with designing future story locations.

This was the biggest drawback for me also.  So boring and tedious that I lost interest in Karfaree completely.   What I did of Karfaree was amusing and fun,  loved the House of pleasures and completed most of the quests until it came to trying to get clues by talking to the townspeople... That is when I gave up on Karfaree

Hi,

I usually don't do the surveys (don't like how they are set up), but understand you're interested in the data, and it's obvious that you (and your team) put a lot of effort and care into it, so will give it a try.

I played 2 heros this alpha, which was part of the reason why I eventually stopped visiting Karfaree. I simply got confused of where I had done what, and since I didn't enjoy the location much in general (see below), eventually I stopped persueing it with either hero.

1 - not sure what the main quest was exactly, tbh

2 - hardly any, but trying to remember: got that blond girl to follow hero to dwelling, made the salad & got into the party. didn't do zoo (taming animals generally not my thing), had written quest location off by the time I had finished garden puzzle and could have gotten the red flowers, couldn't find 1 opera page so eventually gave up on that, got close to having the bath house guy (note: finding all the names/characters hard to remember) admit who he is, but that was about the time I ended up not liking/revisiting)

3 - bribed guard with one hero, through tunnel/fighting worms with other hero

4+5 - made the salad, don't remember which one

6 - no, couldn't find key (this was before I generally got better at finding items tho, so maybe not that hard after all)

7 - no, 1 missing opera page

8 - no clue who or what doom bringer is

9 - think I gave the guy resources?

10 - yes / damaged colloseum / think I just waited (for an hour or so?)

11 - no. by the time I had more army, I had lost interest in the location

12 - no. Does this have to do with the portrait from one of the dens? again, had lost interest by the time I found that.

13 - no, that was around where I stopped visiting.

14-19 - no. This might have been another bigger reason why I stopped visiting and persueing the quest(s). I am (fairly) young, very progressive and anything but prude. But just from reading these survey questions and reading snippets of comments from other players, I completely lost interest because it all sounded a bit silly, childish and oldschool/antiquated, like old men from a past century giggling about dirty jokes (sorry, hope this makes sense). Basically, going to be blunt here, the world/net is full of better, um, material in that department, so personally don't have need for it in this game :)

20 - started to, but as mentioned above, am not been a keen animal tamer in general.

21 - don't know where or what casino square is

22 - don't know/remember who Lucy is

23 - less interesting, found the bits I did/read fairly dull, superficial, shallow

24 - less interesting, see above

25 - probably just a few

26 - can't really judge as didn't try much to persue

27 - the conversations didn't catch my attention. As mentioned above, I never really managed to remember who is who, how they were related to each other. Found walking back and forth to characters tiresome, took too long, etc. Too much reading (and I have a lit major, haha!), and lost interest in comparing/remembering/exploring if/how different replies changed plots/actions.

28 - for now (will give it another try) they were too many.

 29 - I find Karfaree very different. While the other locations imo give an overview type of gist in terms of overall story, Karfaree seems to be trying to give individual characters' stories (which, to me, feel random tho). I am usually very interested in indidual's story/fate, but not in this case. Obviously the overall size is different too and the amount of options/(sub)quests/things to do.

30 - I do like the idea of a bigger/more complex location. I wouldn't say needs to be split into different locations, but maybe (for me) needs to be split into different "city quarters" to not feel like such a big blob?

31/32 - no idea what this question is about

33 - didn't really "beat" much

Okay, sorry for sounding so negative. It just didn't do it for me, although I will give it another try next alpha. Maybe I was simply too interested/busy with other aspects of the game. Although I don't think I'll ever be very interested in the stories & characters, but do want to try to solve a bit more/get more accustomed with the place. As said in the beginning, it is obvious that a lot of time/energy/creativity was spent on it, and I can see how other players might enjoy it very much.

  1. Have you helped Domina to return to business? How did you convince Rayanus?
  2. Have you tried the Domina's girls? Have you tried to work at Domina's? Which client have you got?
I have done this one 3 times, each a bit different then the others. It all depends on the skills you have. The first one I had very little in the skill department, so I had to bribe him. the 2nd one I really do not remember too well, how I did it. BUT the 3rd I laughed and laughed, I waited till I had like 15 in the Charisma, Wisdom and Intelligence it was the below request.The conversation with Domina took a bit for me to find out what he got but I thought it was funny, others may not. But I like adult humor.
