Re: What feelings did you have?

The original Bard's Tale was an immediate fascination to me - a turned based RPG with a small world to explore, first of it's kind. I watched others play it, and later I got my hands on it. Loved it but never finished it and never played BTII. But the 3rd Bard's Tale I bought and played with fervor ...

Version 2.1.3

Makes sense. I did not realize I had a newer version than what was being discussed here.

I'm sure it will be great. It seems you have a ton of things to constantly evaluate and re-evaluate. :)

Version 2.1.3

Since upgrading, I've engaged in dozens of random encounters and have yet to have ANY random drops of anything.

Wandering Monters/Random Encounters

I like the idea. Bards Tale had something in it where once you reach a certain level, the "smaller" encounters ceased as the creatures of the lower levels avoided you. Once you have made it to the sewers, for instance, going back to the watchtower would have the snakes and rats of that area jumping ...

Stuck in burial mound

I never found one. Both doors have the same unavoidable melee. But, avoiding it only delays your death. The dungeon is filled with encounters of that level, so if you can't defeat the first group, you're not ready for it. That's it's purpose.

The Cleansing Shell?

Where do I get better equipment?

I agree here that there should be more random drops of equipment. I mean, they are all fighting you with swords and armor. With the exception of the rats, which I find hilarious when they drop a chest. And I hate that harmonic gems are not for sale at any price, anywhere.

Thank you for a great game

I'm so nostalgic for the older games. Grew up on Zork and all the interactive fiction games, and still prefer primitive graphics to the headache inducing 3D stuff. I'm also playing NetHack, the "advanced" version of the classic Rogue. It just never gets old for me.
