Lol seems obvious now, thanks for the reply.

I thought I would give this a shot. As long as it is portrait mode, I'm game. So far it is pretty fun! However, I was working through Cragmore Pass and went down some stairs, I thought, and ended up in the Dwarf/mine Hammerstone area. Is it not possible to go back? I can't find the stairs I used to get down here. Anyone know? Was it a one-way trip?

EDIT: nevermind, I figured it out!

Yeah, the first time I played (as a human), I never found either the Dwarf or Elf starting points. Starting as a Dwarf and going down those stairs blew my mind

Mickey the Dwarf's adventures have taken an interesting turn. I've been running around bashing undead, bandits, and a pesky necromancer without a whole lot of trouble so far. I've put my level-up stats into Bravery and Cunning in a 2:1 ratio, haven't touched Knowledge yet. The only "problems", if you could call them that, are thus:

- I haven't had anywhere near enough money to buy the best equipment I've seen so far. I saved up and got a nice sword for 200 gold, but I've been unable to save enough to replace my starting shield so far. Everything I've found in dungeons has been pretty worthless so far with the notable exception of finding a healing ring like RHess did. Maybe now I'll be able to sell off some cheap food items I keep finding just to chip away at getting a new shield...

- I found a quest item without finding the quest it was attached to (see screenshot). I guess I need to head back to the last couple of towns and make sure I didn't miss anyone... At least, after I'm done roasting bandits in the Forest of Kyre.

I'll keep running around in this forest and the last town or two to see if I can finish off the quest I never started.

Found it! Quest resolved.

Moved on to the ice area and started getting shellacked by wolves, so I returned to the forest and nearby city to regroup. Picked up new armor for 200 gold and had a good chuckle at the healing item "Health Triangle" that was on the castle wall in Alestane.

A trek back to my hometown to buy some upgraded armor and shield solved my wolf problem. I also learned that I shouldn't take all NPCs at their word - a guard told me I wasn't allowed to proceed in Alestane, so I didn't explore as much as I should have when I first got there. Ignoring him allowed me to progress to a new area and unlock two new quests, one of which, a tower exploration / assassination mission, I finished immediately. I've now completed 4 quests.

Now I've cleared out the Wolf's Den and am continuing to explore the ice area - I've got two active quests that are right next to each other on the map. I also have a full equipment loadout except the spellbook. Here's what my Mickey is rocking:

Cloak of Defense
Vendel Helm
Amulet of Haida
Battle Ax
Chainmail
Iron Shield
Life Giver
Warrior Boots

My equipment is about 50/50 purchased vs. found.

I also found a Mysterious Blue Shard in the ice area - another quest item that I haven't been given a quest for.

I love health triangles
Remember that quest items can be dropped withoit disappearing, so if you've got something you don't want clogging up your inventory, you can leave it in a town!

Mickey made a bit more progress overnight. Immediately after his first boat ride, he got pinned between two rather large monsters and suffered his first defeat. Taking more care in his travels from that point forward, his journey has taken him to the Wastelands, where he was warned that he needed to make sure he knew what he was doing before he proceeded. After one battle in the Wastelands with an Undead Lord, he decided it was time to high-tail it back to where he'd come from to regroup.

Definitely don't have the artifacts I need to proceed here, so I'll head back to the previous area to see what I've missed. I've completed 10 of 18 quests, and one of them, "Plumbing Problems", gave me such a huge pile of money that I could afford the best sword I've seen (45 power Great Sword). It was a tough choice between that and new armor, but buying the sword brought my stats more into balance.

I got a necklace somewhere which reveals the whole map you're on. It also put a little black and white icon at the bottom of my map, I guess to show that it was in effect? Anyway when I tapped the icon, it caused the ma to redraw, but nothing else changed. I was wondering whether the effect could be turned on and off via the icon. Because that effect is mixed blessing, you can only tell where you haven't been by the I revealed pats of the map, right? But eventually the icon disappeared and my maps went back to normal, though I still have the necklace. Anyone know how that works? Did I use it up or does it only last a short while, or did tapping the icon wear it out somehow? Was I supposed to unequip it and re-equip it when I wanted to use it???
