    This walkthrough will be a pointform minimalistic series of steps to 
    completing the game, excluding side quests.  That said, RSPD is extremely rich
    with humourous tidbits so I would encourage you to explore, read everything, 
    and use the walkthrough when you're stuck to get to the next plot point.

    clues about what you should be doing next.
