It was almost exactly a year ago when I asked a friend if he’d be willing to play some duos with me. I had nothing very particular in mind, just the added challenge of completing a match with only two players, which I’d only done a couple times before on purpose (it happens every now and then that a public game begins or becomes a duo by chance, though few will end that way).

Which is why I won’t make an attempt at any sort of exhaustiveness. Instead, I’ll focus on characters and events that are important for the stories I’ve written and intend to write.
