|former inhabitant, now turned into a murdering pool of blood|
Though I am a mage I use melee combat 90 % of the time. The single most important reason is that it takes too long to hurl offensive spells. The animation following a casting spell lasts for around 10 seconds and even though the time is freezed during the casting, the amount of damage done is just a little bit better than a successful hit by my sword. That is a major drawback and something I will return to when reviewing this game. As it stands right now, a fighter has the best chance of surviving. Most of my skill points is put into magic but I am not using it to its fullest in any way because of this.
Another memorable NPC is the old man, a failed experiment to turn him into a blood spåawn. The creatures took no notice of him, probably because they thought he was one of them. He didn´t say anything useful apart from being an odd thing in the Underground City.
Take a look at my character screen right now:
The underground city was the first place in which I could exit to different places on the overland map. I tried the north exit but got stuck before the Elder Tree. I wasted no time to figure out what to do but left for the western exit instead.
