Play Orlog With Alwin
This is one of the first quests that you’ll receive during the Sigrblot festival. As you’ve probably guessed, all you have to do is play Orlog with Alwin and beat him, but we all know that a game of Orlog isn’t always so simple. You’ll find Alwin waiting in the festival grounds of Ravensthorpe, on a table with the same signature blue cloth which is associated with most Orlog players. Speak with him to begin the game. You’ll earn 30 Festival Tokens each time you beat Alwin at Orlog, and none if you lose to him.
How to Beat Alwin at Orlog
Your chances of winning will depend on appropriate die choices, and a good bit of luck. There are two main principles that you should keep in mind to increase your chances of success:
- Always select die faces with red / yellow borders, which provide tokens for god favors
- Always select die faces with hands first, which steal tokens from your opponent for god favors
These die faces should be prioritised because the first will provide you with hands that can be used for god favors, which are your most powerful attacks. The second will allow you to take tokens from the opponent, thereby limiting their ability to use god favors. God favors can be used to inflict massive damage to your opponent, as with Thor’s Strike, or to heal yourself, as with Idun’s Rejuvenation. You’ll earn more and different types of god favors each time you beat a new opponent. They are the key to winning games quickly and reliably, but be aware that if your opponent obtains enough god tokens to utilize their own powerful god favors, they won’t be shy in putting them to good use. As a result, the first player to have the most tokens to utilize their god favors is often the key to winning a game.
