A downloadable mod

In this narrative focused (no combat) encounter chain, you'll get to know and spend time with a pet claw troll named Ruben, who has a big heart and more enthusiasm than sense.

Dedicated to Henry and Frodo.

  • One blessing
  • One curse
  • Twenty pieces of card art

Thanks to Mim, Fiogan and Maydn for testing feedback and proof reading. Thanks also to Anthony, Cade, James, Nic, and everybody at Defiant for support and encouragement! :D

Install instructions

Note: This version of the mod is for non-Steam users. If you are running Hand of Fate 2 on Steam, you can subscribe to it on the Steam Workshop.

To install on Linux, Mac or Windows, extract the zip file into the following location under your Hand of Fate 2 install folder (if you're on Windows, the slashes are the other way around):

Hand of Fate 2_Data/StreamingAssets/AssetBundles/mod/

Once the mod has been installed, you'll need a mod-enabled save slot to play it with. It is recommended that you clone an existing save, as leaderboards and achievements will be disabled for mod-enabled saves, and this process can not be undone. To create a mod-enabled clone of an existing save, select "Load Game / Mods" from the game's main menu, and then click the cog icon to the right of your save slot.

If you have any troubles or questions, don't hesitate to ask!
