And I thought I took the long way around...heh. Nice one.

(what a tremendous amount of effort, though!)

Ah, found it! ausgerechnet, Pacian -- thank you!

Spoiler: show
marfi, the same thing happened to me: my very excellent memory just straight up nixed one of the planets. The worst part is, Szymon kept trying to tell me and I wouldn't listen; in my mind I had already made the rounds.

I was role-playing a character who believes in honest hard work. Jumped to Cygnet right from the beginning, delivered 3000 pods for Devrim, bought my twin :)

The fact that we can even talk about how to roleplay this game says so many good things about it.

Hi.
I really liked this game. Had a lot of atmosphere to it.

Can anyone help me with finding the cat planet?
Does it require doing something special?

Hi pund!

You could say there's something special you have to do for this one. I've concealed some ROT13'd hints below. You can paste them into the box at http://rot13.com/ one at a time if you want to figure it out yourself, or all at once if you're in a hurry.

I got all the achievements and the final ending, yay! Some questions, though:

Spoiler: show
How do you get to Amarok? And how are you supposed to hear about it? I only found it via vlaviano's screenshot. I have 49 planets visited, not counting Amarok, but Sobol's revew on IMDB says there's 53... I wonder what else I missed.

Is there any way to talk to Leda?

I have +5 badassitude. Is that the max?

Hi Doug. There are some answers below!

You only find out about Amarok (and the system where you hear about Amarok) in the game if you keep following the quest to find Prex. Once Aurea's back in Hardshell, the quests get suspended. I could've sworn I added a couple of extra mentions, but apparently not! Hopefully this is the only thing in the game that you can miss this way. Everything else (even running out of fuel or getting stuff stolen by the amalgs) is supposed to be recoverable.

No. Leda doesn't want your germs.

There are five junk implants, but one is worth +2, so no!

Spoiler: show
The system where you would have found out about Amarok, rot13'd, is: Tbffnzre

Are you sure you've visited all the places close to home? Maybe there's one or two less famous places.

Rot13'd again, some people mention this: Gur Onggyr bs Senaxyva - it's a reference to a place you might have missed.

And finally, there are a couple of Easter eggs that are usually in parser games that it might seem like SVT doesn't implement...

Aha! Yeah, I forgot about the Prex quest. Too bad I wrote over my save file. I guess I'll restart.

I went there, but probably only because vlaviano mentioned it.
