This walkthrough was written using the initial (1.0) release of Kingmaker and the "normal" difficulty setting.

Kingmaker was designed for a new character, so don't be alarmed when you find yourself at level 10 at the start of the game. Once the prelude ends, you'll be back at level 1, and then once you can really do anything, you'll be up to level 3.

Since you'll get a powerful weapon in the game, and since that weapon can only be a melee weapon, melee characters are the easiest to play in the module.

If you kill a guard in the keep, you'll lose the module.

If you do as much as possible, you'll finish the module around level 9.
