It is fun, but quite easy. However, the novelty of hide in shadows, backstab, run away and hide again loses its appeal quite quickly, but you can have a lot of fun in the towns. It also allows for good roleplaying, as you don't fight every monster and can steal and lie your way through parts of the ...

enchanter or diviner?

I want to solo a mage. Which would be the bigger challenge: enchanter or diviner?

What does everyone think?

computer games: harmless fun?

As a child and teenager, I was always told that computer games were bad for you, because they were immature, discouraged you from physical activity, made you socially inept and, in some cases, fostered violent and even demonic behaviour.

I still remember getting killed in my first fight by about 5 hobgoblins! I didnit realise that one sleep spell could finish them all off. Now that's real g...

This may be hard to believe, but Bad Boy Bubby makes Deliverance seem like a Disney movie by comparison, oh wait, Disney can be *very* disturbing.

Let's just say that BBB is much more screwed up than any movie I have seen, including Deliverance.

Anyone else seen BBB?

@two- good questions I think that it is a valid roleplaying option, as I agree that your character would look to maximise the usefulness of any equipment found. The problem is that many people do not "find" these items because they prepare characters specifically to use these items, or even edit pro...
