Well, I finally got my game, and I'll tell you, someone really screwed up...
The map, cloth map, I could have made with a printer and a visit to any fabric shop, it's going to fall apart in no time.
The rings, one good one evil huh? well I got 2 evil, one that didn't even have the colouring...
Thankfully the only reason I bought it was for the in game perks...
