- There where only four doors in the corner of the city, each leading to another door that seemed to require some sort of key or object to open.
- We found a well with a riddle. Actually I thought it was a downstair ladder at first and left it for last to examine.
- In the four corners of the city there where some strange urn or markings. I have no idea if I am supposed to do something with these.
- In the middle of the city was an island surrounded by water. The water poured in from open tunnels in the citywalls.

The only other place that I had not explored yet was the tunnels into the city walls. We went in there swimming and saw a small square with a chest behind the walls. Hurray! This got the adrenaline pumping. I trained my group further in swimming and went in. After disarming the chest we got a few items of interest. Mostly potions or scrolls but no new weapon or armour.

After stumbling around the huge overland map we finally reached a new city (I was hoping to crawl down into a dungeon or ruins or something) called Nyetalinth. The T´rang race that inhabited this city was not too pleased to meet me.
After exploring the city we came upon a security area where we got hold of some finger rods that I have no idea what to do with. We also found a T'Rang portbook. Other than that the city so far is as empty as the first. Only when there is some texts attached you have to keep your eyes open and search the area.
My reflections about the game now is that while it is still quite enjoying I am also beginning to tire of the fights. I choose my fights now and reload when there are too many random groups encountering me. That leaves me more time to draw my map undisturbed and take on the fixed fights instead.

This game will easily require at least 100 more hours of me if I am even remotely thinking of trying to complete it in any way. I am not sure I want to spend the rest of the spring playing this but I will not stop now until I´ve pushed forward in my new direction.
My group are now all at least in their 8th level and I am wondering if I should switch career for some of my partymembers. We will see if anything happens in my next post. It also depends on wether my partymember can meet the requirements of my intended profession.
