LOW Why is everything so damned unpolished?

LOW The Battle Charge + Enrage bug rendering Caddoc unable to attack until I reload.
WTF Deleting my clear file re-locks the unlockable content even though the Achievement shows I've already beaten the game?
Playing like a videogame version of The Princess Bride (going so far as to enlist the voice talents of Cary Elwes), The Bard's Tale skewers RPG conventions with gleeful abandon at every turn. Rather than feature a character who's a good guy from the start, players tackle the role of The Bard.
