If I remember correctly, that's pretty much the end of the demo. You can saunter over to the next town and meet up with the heroine of the other demo path, but there's no real meat to Olberic's path after smashing the bandits in the cave.

Fair enough so.

I wish I didn't have this Turn-Based Allergy - I want to love this game.

Might I ask what rubs you up the wrong way about RPG's, Jim?

Ah, yes - I thought I'd elaborated on my previous post, but it looks like I deleted is at it was a bit ranty.

The problem I have with turn based RPGs is that, for the most part, you can't get out of the way of at least a partial clobbering; discovering you don't have enough <letter representing super power magic abilities>P to activate your ultra sword attack, and will have to wait three turns to use it and rely on a regular attack, which you know based on previous encounters won't be enough to kill the bads. It's too easy to find yourself in an unwinnable (or even "almost unwinnable") situation 4 turns before you actually succumb to it (which has also taken 1 minute with button hammering). With Zelda - take BotW for example, I died loads of times in a row to Lynels and Guardians, but I accepted that as it wasn't over until it was over, if that makes sense.

Disclaimer: This isn't a smarmy opinion - I don't like that I don't like turn-based RPGs. The stories and environments always have me intrigued, and I'd love to play an early Final Fantasy, and I've technically got Chrono Trigger lined up; I've also just seen the trailer for Lost Sphear, and I immediately thought "oh wow I definitely want to run round that place" and then it cuts to the battle screen...

Anyway - Octopath Traveller.
