    This dude is pure URB. This is the worst enemy there is in any urbzz game. Please prove me wrong.

    In other games your character can get a serious malus while in urbzz games you can get frogged.
    Later is the worst. 😉 This sinister old lady must have really been hungry for me green thighs.

    – Day 42, Alexious, Killed by a Hag at level 3 after 41.99 days of travel. Alexious had 72 gold pieces in his purse and managed to gain 12 experience points.
    – Day 42, You missed by rolling 9(9+0), which is lower than the attack score (17) of the Hag. You also missed your saving throw (9) which is over your defense score of0!! You lose 1 hit point.
    – Day 42, Your flee score of 4(4+0) was under 10. You also missed your saving throw (7) which is over your defense score of(0).!! You lose one hit point.
    – Day 42, Although delicious, this food did not improve your health.
    – Day 42, Your flee score of 1(1+0) was under 10. You also missed your saving throw (20) which is over your defense score of(0).!! You lose one hit point.
    – Day 42, Your flee score of 6(6+0) was under 10. You also missed your saving throw (3) which is over your defense score of(0).!! You lose one hit point.
    – Day 42, The peasant has fled!!
    – Day 42, You missed by rolling 12(6+6), which is lower than the attack score (17) of the Hag. You also missed your saving throw (17) which is over your defense score of6!! You lose 1 hit point.

    And so I finally get another whack or two at Diterliz. See how that went.

    Since this topic has only one Quest Type by myself to follow I will simply continue here for now.
    Attempt number 3 where as this is the 3rd time that I actually take on that War Lord with a somewhat capable character and not die while leveling up enough or run out of time finding the Temple-of-Elemental-Evil.
    Those attempts are not really worth sharing unless something URBish happened.

    Hey Lance. Nice post! I’ll add some of my “quest” later! I haven’t had much playtime in anything lately due to the potential outbreak of tornadoes here in the South (US). I had a few close calls with some and couldn’t take the chance (19 miles away, tornado [~20 minutes]).

    Can’t wait to get back into some of URB’s games.

    @lance Real movie-like moment at the end there! 1v1, 1hp vs 1hp it could’ve gone either way. I flinched for a second and thought you had lost, but was happy to see you were a hero and not a zero! Well done, and very clearly well planned of you to bring more or less the exact gear (swords, armor, lockpick)

    Glad you swell folks like the end-fight movie scene.
    Pure luck with most of the equipment since nothing useful for that fight was found on sale and even then I was very low on money.
    The two Exotic Iron Swords where made according to plan.
    Lots of bad luck with events that made me lose days like Swamp-crossing -12 (must have been the most I ever got) , Ruined-Building knock-out -5 and a Cockatrice stoned me for another -14 days.
    I do not mind losing this end fight but losing due to end of quest days even when I am at the T-o-E-E suck large-dragon balls.

    All in all I was right at the average quest win ratio of 20% this time around counting the 2 totally failed attempts as well.
    It is a good quest save that ludicrous Door Mechanics and that Diterliz was upgrades in the last patch with having one random special power of almost any kind in game.
    This can be real bogus at times and does not make much sense in most cases.

    @mrprofilen. While I lived in North Dakota I had plenty of Tornado close calls by our house.
    We had a safe cellar and when one came close I retreated to my “Pillbox” corner each time around. Was actually pretty cool to RPG the “END”.
    Towards Tornadoes and STWALT.
    I once made a suggestion regarding an event like that. Man that let’s me wish for a game update.

    All things considered, you probably should’ve died way earlier than you did, Lance. I mean two encounters with the dragon! Not fun at all.

    Also, you wouldn’t happen to remember the spell you attempted to cast that was sop powerful it wiped that part of your brain clean, would you?

    You mean this spell >> – Day 43, Spell major failure: This spell was so powerful for your feeble mind that it traumatized you. You are now scared and the spell is forgotten.
    It was “Create Food” Diff 15. With a 50/50 chance I thought it was worth the risk.
    I was only scared for a few days but with my horse boosting movement speed, the movement penalty combined with that Elves get no penalty in forests made no difference to me.
    This was a very good character but sadly the Gargoyle had the upper hand in that last fight.
    All values considered, running away would have been less successful so I had to fight it.
    RIP Ace, Elf of many mastered encounters till the bitter end.
