this isn't so much an RPG as it is a Visual Novel with a really good battle system. That being said, you still can pick skills to learn, and most equipment balances out pros and cons. Since there's so much loot, there's really no need for levels. Imo, it actually makes the battles more intense, since going back and grinding for exp is no longer an option, forcing players to do as much damage with the equipment they currently have access to.

EDIT: While I'm here, a sincere apology to @3Dash! I didn't realise I remembered the name of the item wrong- sorry if it caused you too much trouble :(

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

@RetroGBHippie92 - I think Magikarp described it well. Rather then level us up and let us grind to over come the harder challenges they give us equipment and force us to use strategy to survive and advance. Though sometimes you "level up" and they give you one of three new skills for each character, letting you increase your move pool and choices. Which means you can use some foresight in planning your moves and deciding what could help your battle plans. Plus since magic is attached to what you are wearing, you can have skills you like, get some stronger equipment and have to re-plan as you lost spells and you can go farther and strengthen the equipment by fusing the same pieces together or fuse a new spell into it. So complex strategy is used without the levels and makes things feel very rewarding when you succeed and failure normally only feels like your own fault for a bad strategy.
However I think the lack of levels is something in part carried from dungeons and dragons but as I never played I don't know. (I found this far more fun then the Denpa Men)

Just got and finished the game not too long. Was worried the dice-rolling aspect would have too much of an impact on the game (and my enjoyment), but it turns out my fears were ill-founded (I actually think the dice were underused).

Enjoyed the game all the same. I especially enjoyed reading the story.

Grinding is still very much an option, even if you didn't get EXP for it.

Just bought Crimson Shroud, I really like the battle system, despite it not having an exp. system. I haven't played much yet, but I've bet the first map and bet the Zombie Minotaur, I can say it's a good game already from what i've played, how long does it take to finish though?

It all depends on how long it takes you to get a certain key on the second area! It took me nearly 4 hours alone. I'll be pushing just over 12 hours once I beat the final boss.

That depends on how many battles you do, how many times you go the wrong way and how much you choose to read. It took me about 8 hours my first run, the second is taking 12 because of how much one can read.

@Aqueous Do you have to do a second playthrough to beat the game entirely or have you just done it by choice? seems like a very short game depending on the choices you make.

@RetorGBHippie92 - Well the second time around adds new areas and dialog, plus better equipment, harder enemies and "spoilers". Also I'm trying to beat it to see about ending changes but I'm struggling. I've left it as beat on my Backloggery just in case of extras that might require a second run.

I'm on the depths map at the moment (second map), what do I do to find the key? I'm going around in circles and facing tons of skeletons (which are difficult as it is looking for this key) and I'm not finding the key anywhere. Is this that part of the game people were talking about not long ago where you had to grind to find the key or am I just mistaken, it's just that I've been everywhere on the second map and i'm not progressing the story in any way.

Yes its the part we are referring too! You just need to keep fighting those skeletons. The item you're looking for I can't remember the name but if you back track a few pages you will find the name of it. You may already have it! Also change up the order in which you defeat them as it might increase the chance for the drop.

I think I need to restart...
My RPG skills are not very good and I have 0 Saint's Tinctures left, and I just got to the point where a lot of the enemies have disappeared.
But that's fine with me, Crimson Shroud is so enjoyable I won't care too much.

@3Dash - The basement level skeletons are still in play if you need an easy fight. Also don't trust in that item, it won't help in some fights.

Saint's Tinctures. I don't even know what these are. Apparently I beat the game without them.
