Re: Retcon: WOOT!

Funny how that happens, isn't it? The same thing happened to me on my first run: killed the Mick with 0 turns left and had to drop my diet restriction to finish it that day. It was worth it though.

Re: Poll: what's next for Twilight Heroes? YOU DECIDE

I'd enjoy both the mall and the leagues, but you bring up some very good points about the downsides involved there. and the puzzle ideas sound fantastic, but ultimately I'm more interested in the story. Especially with that teaser after the Mick fight.
