A question on gameplay

I'm wondering if its similar to Avadon, because I enjoyed the game except the only problem was that it seemed dumbed down. Is this game more complex (more then like 6 different skills for each class) and can I have more then 3 party members?

Thanks

Yes, definitely. These games are why so many of us were dissapointed with Avadon. Much more non-linear, many more character stats and abilities to tweak, and you can make decisions that actually change events in the game

There's a big difference in that you only have one 'real' character at a time, but that character has way more options. There are different classes, but the classes just effect the cost to buy different types of skills, not the skills themselves.

Instead of having multiple fully-realized characters, you have the option to invest part of your maximum "mana" into summoning various creatures, which then stay with you until they die or you dismiss them. These creatures don't really have any options other than sometimes choosing between a ranged or melee attack, but besides that, they are essentially full party members that gain experience and stay with you as long as you want. It's very possible to finish the game with the same creature you created at the very beginning as part of the tutorial still in your party. Depending on your willingness to sacrifice your ability to use spells, you can bring along either few or no creations, a few powerful creations, or a small army of weaker ones.

So basically, you get a single complex character and access to a variable party of simple creatures with little individual customization. Your party choices are more of a loadout decision than building up a team of unique members.

there are waaayyyyyyy more skill categories and it is overall way more complex and expansive. as was said earlier, you can also alter the course of the future by making decisions in the present. avadon was carp compared to geneforge.
