If anyone's studied English history, they'll remember that we were once fond of longbows. The archers in question were often yeomen or farmers who practised for at least an hour every week (I think...

I think Wiz 8 is easy at the end because the enemies rely so much on magic, which by that time you're almost immune to even before you get element/soul shield up. Similarly, magical damage spells are...

I saw someone say that, but it still appears as though initiative helps with swings from comparing other weapons.

Has anyone kept track of how much experience they get from each combat?
It seems as though as long as I kill one of the opponents I get experience as if I'd killed them all. I once met a group of 6...

Where do you find a siege arbalest? Or excalibur?
I love bloodlust and the ivory blade. Boring but true. Without them, I would be nothing. Mystic spears are good fun too.
But I also like mystic...

I just seem to meet bat vampires all the time.
I've also run into lesser demons in the mountain wilderness. They had paralyse and possess and fiery magic.

I love Felpurrs. They make brilliant bishops, samurai, rangers; anything really.
I also like dracons, who can do anything that involves fighting.

I've met plenty of Trynnie renegades/ outcasts, and a fair few rogue picuses. They blind and I think they also paralyse or poison.
I've only ever met a couple of adamantium slimes and a few black...

Can't bards wear snakeskin boots?
Initiative adds swings; that's why bloodlust gives so many swings.
Dexterity helps with number of attacks, and speed boosts both (boosts initiative; hence number...

I hate friends; they always get in the way, as well as wasting time, so I have to sit and wait for them to get the kill.
I never had a problem with juggernaughts, but I hate plants; rank weeds and...

I like the '... but I call it talent.' voice. It always goes to the main spellcaster. The French hunter goes to a dracon fighter.
I like the idiot voice so much that I always use the premade...

I noticed that lash doesn't seem to penetrate as often; perhaps there's a strength factor in penetration which is ignored in lash attacks.
Bash is maybe similar, but less extreme.
When berserking,...

Powerstrike apparently increases probability of the high numbers. How does it affect the distribution?

I've seen a few posts commenting on how easy it is to be torn apart in combat, but perhaps that's because of the parties people choose.
On my first game I saw that the game put three people in the...

I tried to use RFS for Al-Sedexus but she said he wasn't right (I can't remember the exact words).
I didn't realise that it had to be male; she accepted my next offering and I thought that perhaps...

Thanks folks, that helped.
About a priest being good at combat, though: doesn't he get to use the same items as a bishop?

I found that although monsters level up with you, they stop at a certain stage. My level 24 party still occasionally wanders the Arnika/Arnika-Trynton roads, and encounters level 3 or 4 monsters, or...

I reckon that Faeries are harder to look after than other races, so perhaps a begginner should try stronger spellcasters, who can carry more (a begginner won't be as certain as an experienced player...

The old Norse myths are good for names, as are Roman ones. Examples:
Marcus, Egil, Torri, Thorgrim, Olaf, Njal, Caius, Julius, Thalgrim.
Of course, add -son or -sson to make a new name as well......
