I have visisted some Ruins and found some treasure there and also some Slave Estate where a master called Mog was living. Yes, it was deserted and ruined but I found both good equipment and also Mog himself in one of the rooms. Of course, he was not very friendly so I had to defend myself. Later after having defeated all foes I learned somewhere that Mog had left all inheritance of the place to me. Not that I know what that means.
|I inherited Mog´s place, is that why he is kind of angry ?|
I should admit I haven´t spent any skill points yet though except for one of my magicians, Wyrtha, who paid 10 points to get High Magic. Now my group have access to every magical school but very few spells in them. There are a few places here and there where you must use certain skills. Like the smugglers cove where you have to convince them by using pickpocket that you are one of them. They then offer you a ride to Necropolis. That was way too hard for me though. At other places you have to use buerecracy to get some sort of citizen papers to be able to get around and so on. I like the use of the skills but it also makes me cautious about spening my few level points until I know what I need.
I tried to increase my dexterity of two of my warriors with 4 points each (costing 8 level points) but I didn´t notice it any easier to hit or defend from foes. I don´t know what to do. I guess i have to put them into dexterity and/or strength but I will do some tests too see where they are doing the most use first.
I explored Lansk and the city of Phoebus as well. Both tough places. I have come to understand that the game is quite large with at least a one or two dozens of full 16x16 grid cities/places. This will take time. A lot of time. If I am not getting to grip with the mainstory soon it will be easy for me too get temptated by Shadows over Riva or Avadon the black fortress.
