Two, the development point system you describe sounds an awful lot like Rolemaster. I abandoned AD&D many many years ago in favor of Rolemaster for exactly the arbitrary silliness of AD&D's rules. What if I am a fighter and want to learn how to disarm traps (without walking into it delberately http:...

Anyone consider the absurdly high level Aragorn would be as compared to our favorite Hamster-toting warrior? Aragorn probably can't even REMEMBER back to when he was 17th level.... Oh, by the way, that "old broken sword" was recently reforged into the finest sword in 3rd age middle earth....a true a...

Keldorn knows two-handed sword, longsword, and crossbow. I THINK Nalia knows dagger and quarterstaff...I KNOW she can use shortbows and shortswords. Cernd: never used him, but since he already has a quarterstaff, I assume he at least knows how to use it.... ------------------ "If you prefer, you cou...

One is for sale from Gortch in the front room of Mae'Var's guild in the docks district. You could also steal it from him.

"Sacred" rules of AD&D? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! AD&D, while the most popular system ('cause it was the first...) is certainly NOT flawless. MAny game systems reflect combat and weapons in a FAR superior manner. Axes are one of the notoriously underappreciated weapons in the game system. --------------...

Thank you, Radek. I had thought about this strategy but not put it to use yet. I used it in the Den of the Seven Veils to good effect.

Why would a restart be necessary after a full install? Wouldn't it be possible to simply save the game, store the files on floppy or elsewhere, and THEN do the full install?

A correction: The sphere gives you a Staff of Power (among other goodies) IF (that is) your apprentices do not blow themselves up when making the items for you.
