    Great work! These can really ease someone's entry into the game, especially the options regarding an account. I look forward to more.

    I'm glad to hear the community approves of the videos. I got plenty more planned and will go over all the things I personally know so if you guys find a mistake, just let me know. They are only short 10 min videos or editing and changing them isn't too time-consuming. that was kind of the point of the 10 min or less thing, + less dedication to viewers if they just want to learn about 1 or 2 topics

    The skills and exp pool video helped me, but is there currently a cap on your overall skill? Or can you eventually train everything to GM?

    I don't think there is a theoretical limit to your ability.
    But in actual playing, the higher get the more difficult and more XP etc it takes to get higher. Also there is this minor annoyance of decay that makes it more difficult the higher you go.

    (As an avatar of about 300Hp I can't speak of this from personal experience but only what I have read.)

    This is fantastic much needed, BIG BIG kudus to you and your work man. We had a guy who used to do these and he bowed out some time ago. With all the changes to the game his videos are outdated.

    Hello, do you know if there is a list somewhere with alll the load screen hints and tips? I thought I saw one that said that Mind Lock increased the duration of glyphs in your deck even if it wasnt manually activated, but I could be crazy. Id like to confirm if you know where to find a list.

    I've been away from the game since my last videos on COTOS but plan to return to making videos soon. Is there anything you guys want to learn about?

    Hand Holding???? :eek:

    Sorry, couldn't resist. I think it so funny that people complain about too much hand holding in the game but they offer much more hand holding outside.

    Ok so I have been away for a few months. Life just got in the way and I got a new job but I don't have all the tips anywhere but I believe that was a thing with mind lock some time ago but unsure if it's still a thing.

    Ok so I get what you are saying with this but what I see as Hand Holding is when a game more or less does the task for you. It's one thing to explain something and show how it's done but I find that a Tutorial should not feel like a Walkthrough. If I watch a walkthrough (thus hand holding) I expect to see every little part of a game from beginning to end. (be it the entire game, a chapter, a level, or whatever) where a Tutorial I expect a short and descriptive explanation of something. Like in Shroud, explaining that some recipes are learnable through trial and error is tutorial like, where showing how to do every one of the mentioned recipes is hand-holding/Walkthrough. It's the best way I can describe this. There is a fine line between these two and it's subjective. Never the less I try to be informative without being spoiler full or assume you're too dumb to figure some of this out yourself.

    @ACryInShame I definitely prefer tutorials vs. walkthroughs.

    Look at @Lace presentation of material. Shows you the basics without telling you what you *need* to do, because there is so many different ways to do it.
