    A breath of fresh air.

    Reviewed By: Rand on 29 Oct 2015

    This hack was very pleasing to me. Character balance is essential to any RPG, and this addressed several problems I myself had with the original.

    I will say now that I have not completed the game yet with this hack due to lack of time, but only found one pointer error, which was swiftly handled by the author. If the author so wishes, I WILL happily scour the hack top to bottom in-game later on. (Let me know, Vivify :) )

    Do I recommend this? Absolutely. Nei in particular felt like a guest character originally, rather than what she is. The hack would be worth it for that alone, nevermind the other various bugfixes and improvements.
