Yeah, that sort of thing happened to me a couple times, and so I stopped using companions. It's not like they're very powerful anyway.

It's drow as in cow. Or as in "Ow, that evil bastid stabbed me!"

Well, revenants are undead, so the exorcism spell is useful against them, as is the ivory mace of divinity (located in the crypt).

If you have a lot of trouble against them, I think you can skip all or most of them.

From my experience, an archer character is the way to go. Just be sure to check the readme file for perk requirements. The manual has quite a few of them wrong.

Both games have some serious flaws, but if you're looking for the one closest to Fallout, then Lionheart is the one you should choose.

The portal is close to the workshop. It's not a seperate area on the world map. Just follow the path south / east away from the workshop and it should lead you to the portal.

The thieves are at the northern edge of the town, near the train.

For a soldier / guardian, you should select 8 intelligence. That will give you 1 skill point per level. To get 2 skill points per level, you need 14 intelligence, which isn't worthwhile. (If you want skill points, you should play a scout or scoundrel.) If you primarily want to be a melee character, ...

There's a trick to killing all of the daevas. If you can't figure it out, we do have a Lionheart walkthrough here.

The khan can be tough. You need to kill the goblins around him to reduce his healing rate.

You don't throw the firepowder kegs. They drop where you use them, and then go off after a couple seconds.

I've been running Arcanum on an XP system, and I haven't had any problems. Maybe there's something wrong with your copy of the game.

The bracers are pretty small, so they're hard to see. After you agree to deal with the goblins, and the goblins atatck, one of them should drop a set of bracers. You can also find a couple at the bounty hunter camp. Anyway, I'm pretty sure the bracers are optional. Once you deal with the three threa...

The camera is involved in an optional quest in Caladon, so it's no biggie if you don't have it any more.

But...

I think you can buy it back if you want, and

Ristezze doesn't give very good prices. You should try selling things at the general store first.

You can't get to it, and people who have looked into the matter say it's not a very exciting sword anyway.
