Re: Level 7 Iron Door Note

Not hard, as long as you have the manual dexterity of a teenager. I liked this game because I played the original dungeonmaster when it was released in the 80's, so am not so young. Dungeonmaster had lots of puzzles but did not rely so much millisecond perfect key presses. I liked this game in the ...

There are maps available. They'd probably help you more than I could.

Re: Character Generation 101

Does anyone know if: Vitality > 20 gives more health / health per level Willpower > 20 gives more energy / energy per level I've noticed that equipping some +Wilpower items on my mage (with > 20 willpower) doesn't add to her Energy pool. I think I've noticed the same thing for vitality. I'm wonderi...

Re: Level 7 Iron Door Note

Don't worry about memorizing a sequence. It's not hard to clear it by reflex, like a bona fide Dungeon Hero.

Re: I am on my second playthrough

Of course you're going to out-damage other skills if your Unarmed fighter is a Minotaur with skulls. That's not a fair comparison. I had a party where one character had 50 Swords using the Sword of Nex and another had 50 Unarmed Combat. The swordsman out-damaged my Unarmed character by a fair margin...

Re: I am on my second playthrough

Unarmed Combat is a great skill. The main advantage it has over other offensive skills is that it offers big defensive bonuses as well. It gives a total of +10 Dexterity and +20 Evasion (+40 evasion total, plus a ton of Fire/Shock resistance and Accuracy), and there's +7 worth of Strength bonuses in...

Re: What's athletics useful for?

Is £2 bad compared to £10? Assuming you want money, and the only difference between two mutually exclusive options is that one of them gets you $10 and the other gets you $2, then the one that gets you $2 is bad. It gets you an economic loss of $8. Assuming you want those numbers on your character ...

You can take Athletics. Just don't pretend it's not bad.

That 1/16th reduction in your party's food consumption isn't exactly a big deal. Athletics is a placebo for people who suck at math.
