      I got so close to getting that but I must have chosen the wrong choice at the end and it didn’t give me the achievement. It’s very vague. I can post the screenshots. Maybe they’ll help you until I get it again.

    I found out how to get the frozen blood and become the Alchemist ! It has nothing to do with the Holy Grail and the Crusades !

    When the witch wants you to prove you are a “good King”, she asks you to rule for 15 years with the “burden of the years” (playing in French, doesn’t know how you call it in english) and then the words of other people are twisted.
    Well, if you manage that, she comes back and offers 2 choices : a golden crown or a “ruby cold to the touch”. Don’t be all greedy and pick the ruby ! You’re the Alchemist.

          Hmm… I often govern for a while, but I always get the old age thing, and end up dying of old age. How can I belay that?

              My best bet is that your lifespan decreases for every cake and celebration you have. This is kinda hinted by a certain character that says ‘That’s too much sugar!’

                Hmm interesting thought. I’ve only gotten that ending 2-3 times, though. I can’t remember which choices I made in those games. But that sounds like a pretty solid theory.

            If you have the Vase sometimes it will “give you life” or sometimes it will feel generous and make you “ten years younger”…. Maybe this helps? It might just be a random lucky strike to last that long

      You need to keep all four resources even as much as possible. If any fill up to 100% or run out completely, that will result in death — unless you have a special status (like a Cathedral or barn) that can protect you from that specific issue. If you have a status that lowers or increases a resource in real time, you need to work extra hard to keep them balanced. There is some luck involved, but the more you play, the better you’ll be able to predict the outcome of a certain choice, simply because you know what that card does already.
      It’s not easy, though — four games in and I’m still getting the hang of it.

    Can you do a guide on how to get all the deaths as well? In addition, I haven’t gotten all the cards– only 595 :/

      You get a card where the Bishop tells you he needs you to build a Cathedral. Say yes, and after a few years he’ll return and say it’s built. I’m not sure if certain cards will make that one come up, though.

      You need to get sick and the doctor tells you he needs to cut off your hand.

      I’ll try to see if I have screenshots of the actual cards to give you more details.

    2. August

      You have to go hunting and get sick, then say “get the doctor!” And he’ll cut off your hand about 8 in 10 times you do that.

  3. Random

    When you ‘recruit’ the skeleton, Klok I think his name was, he’ll occasionally appear and ask if you need help with anything.
    If you say no, he leaves and comes back later.
    If you say yes, he’ll boost one of the four symbols and leaves, BUT he does come back and asks you if you need help.
    If you say yes when you have a death wish, the game ends with tricking the devil.
