I am not sure how to do a poll so I will just ask and count any responses on my fingers, toes if necessary.
I am doing a poverty run with a cleric/mage and I just made it to ToB. She has only kept gold and scrolls never used anything but I have reached a dilemma. Her name is Vasilisa and I absolutely cannot finish the game without a doll, you know the tale about her, her magic doll and Baba Yaga the witch. The first time I played a character with the name Vasilisa I just kept Wellyn’s bear and felt so guilty that I never did it again and would wait until ToB and keep the Shakti Figurine. This is the first time I have ran her in a poverty run and my question is this:
Can I actually use the Figurine?
Now normally I would not, but...
1)It is in no way adding power. All of the Shapechange forms are more powerful and the limitations of the figurine make it far less powerful than my character is in every way.
2)The doll is pivotal in Vasilisa’s tale, it is possible that my babushka will come back and haunt me if I don’t use it. I always use it at least once in actual combat.
I wish that I would have used a different name but I will not be restarting now.
What do y’all think?
