    Two staunchly different adventures, Lance. Too bad it only worked out for one of the two. It seems at times that the game has it out for the poor wizard, though that may just be down to the fact that he is a slow burn character.

    Good on you being able to escape enemies with some frequency. I never quite get that lucky XP

    Three Excalibur Hilts ee. Could be worse Nicholas. Could have been three useless, broken off, Excalibur blades.

    – Day 0, Fizban is starting his adventures. Memo for Suggestion: Here it should say what quest you are on.
    Yes, that was a rather easy quest. Lucky that Gollum did not follow you out of that cave. :another suggestion:
    Nice tales folks. Keep ’em coming. 😀

    Short story of Pain-the-Paladin. Why Pain as name?. Cause it’s a pain to play them at times due mainly to the limit on gold per level like in this case.
    The trip started rather well.
    Found me a great helm, antidote, fail, great-sword (now I am rocking) and the Castle within the first 20 days delivering a Princess back to ol daddy king. Good times that sadly did not last.
    My sword flew out of me grasp at the edge of the game field. Never found it again nor any other melee weapon till the end.
    Got stoned two different times, dug myself out of a mine AND a cave to lose about half the quest time.
    Shortly before quests end I find the Temple-of-Elemental-Evil but at lvl3 with no weapon I decided to not die in shame so I wandered around a bit more in hope of finding a weapon.
    A Hag did me in instead, 3 times till I got away. Froged with but 1 HP a Stranger came along.
    With me last 50gp I paid for that super ultra shortcut back to the Castle on the other side of the map.
    The princess promptly un-frogged me and I headed strait back to the Evil-Temple to give it a a try after all.
    A few pix in front of the place the game ended.

    I shall return ….

    Wooha, now that’s a good-looking picture.
    Your own work, I presume?

    “Got stoned two different times” That’s why I never use the pipe. Remember kids, don’t do drugs!

    The free un-froggings at castle are something I figured out only recently, but it’s a nice touch.

    I’ve killed dragons. I’ve saved princesses. I’ve killed Derelitz. I even forged Excalibur. My arm is tired…and it’s not from porn…

    Mod Edit~Lance. Let’s see if I can make that picture show here.
