Re: YACD

Well, Lotho is relatively easy for a Ranger, but where are your scrolls of Phase Door and potions of Heroism?

Re: YACD

Gold 11


I suppose I could have stayed in town for a bit longer to get some more and buy some scrolls, but it never occured to me that I might need them. I had done that quest easily with several other characters.

Re: YACD

You could have sold the sword and bought a dagger in it's stead. It would have gotten you 2 attacks per turn, dealing a bit more damage than the sword and extra gold for the phase doors and heroisms.

Beyond that, dying to a Nightlizard on level 1 isn't all that embarrasing, since Nightlizards are pretty tough. IIRC, they have relatively high HP and AC.

I've lost a few characters to them myself...

Re: YACD

True, it's not necessarily embarrasing. I just found it somewhat humorous that I beat the unique who could have killed me with two ranged attacks then lost to a creature with no ranged attack when I was a ranger.

Good point about the short sword as well.
