More about the game:
A. Your character isn't defined by some destined class path or progression. He or she will gain all of their powers based on the cards you have equipped. There are many different card types: weapons, abilities, modifiers, and many types of clothing and accessories.
Q. How does equipping cards work?
A. As your character progresses through the game he will earn credits that can be assigned to the three different schools: Athletics, Science, and Mischief. You can redistributed your credit allocations amongst the different schools at any time. Equipping a card will use up credits from the different schools, depending on its equipping requirements.
For example, if you have a baseball bat card that costs 3 athletics credits to use, then you can equip the card and this will deduct three athletic credits from your character. You can unequip the card whenever you would like to have those credits back. Sometimes cards will require a mix of schools before you can use them. An ability that boosts your attack power and defense for a little bit might cost 2 athletics credits and 2 mischief credits.
Q. How do I get credits?
A. The only way to get credits is to prove yourself in battle. As you progress through the game, you will be accomplishing pre-established goals that we call achievements. An achievement might be something like “Kill 200 Foxdrops” or “Defeat Baron Von Baronvon” or “Don't die during a mission”. The achievement will usually also grant you some additional credits to spend on your character, and sometimes even give you a new card.
Q. What are the beat-em-up aspects of Discarded?
A. During missions, your character will need to accomplish an objective while being assaulted from all directions by enemies. Some of them are cute, and easy to kill. Others have teeth and are less easy to kill because they will use their teeth to try and stop you. You need to use your weapon cards, ability cards, and guarding effectively to defeat them.
