I played this one a lot today and I still like it, so it must be pretty good. I recruited an amazon warrior in my group. She helped me kill a bear in the nearby cave, save a wizard that got lost there and also kill a pack of wolves. After that, we went on to find a guy that stole his girlfriends diadem. It turns out he did it in order to save her life and now he’s in trouble, so we helped him and he joined our group to.
Since we had a rogue now, I went back to all the places I’ve already been to unlock some chests I couldn’t before. I also learned Alchemy, Blacksmithing and Bowyer skills and finally, after clearing everything I can in the starting area, went on to the town I’ve actually been trying to get to. I was attacked by wolves on the way there, but they were easy to dispose of. Before entering the town, I found out that our rogue is wanted by the guards so he needs to sneak in. We agreed to meet him inside.
