you'll complete the new year time for
a new game quest worth 100 points.
Now, here's a quick way to earn to achievements.
Complete these or another two for 200 Microsoft reward points.
Near the very beginning of the game,
when you leave the first tavern you visit,
you'll find three charming characters outside looking for a fight.
Select the first dialogue option
leading to one of them attacking you.
You'll need to keep moving to make sure he doesn't hit you.
Here's a tip, rolling will drain your stamina,
so make sure you use dodge instead.
Finish him off without taking a hit for the fist of
the South Star achievement worth 15 gamer score.
Another one you can take on early
in the game is the Triple Threat.
This is a secret achievement worth 15 gamer score.
If you find yourself facing

that will happen a lot,
switch it up and take each one out with a different attack.
Use your sword for one,
a sign for another and your crossbow on a third.
