Thieves don't need no magic words!

Post by Zachski » Thu May 25, 2017 8:40 pm

Goofing around, I discovered something interesting.

If you have the Acrobatics skill, you don't need to know the magic words to get past the bush blocking the path to Baba Yaga's hut. if it's high enough, you can actually take an acrobatic leap over the bushes instead. It's also a fairly detailed sequence featuring the Hero backing up, running at the bush, and leaping over it.

And the game remembers, too, because when you leave, you'll leap back over the bush.

I wonder what happens if your skill is too low though...
