Well... after almost 14 levels, i ventured over toward a evil pylon that i saw on the overmap, the level was 12, and i was almost 14, though my first run weapons have been getting a little thin for the last few levels, and then with the elemental damage coming in, i really wasn't prepared, but that is my fault. I didn't realize what it would take to handle the level.
Also, I was too far into the level, again, my fault...
I thought, well... if i get in over my head, i have lots of health potion, i should be fine. but was attacked by several of the skelebots and their rusty brown robotic friends, and my health just dropped precipitously.
Anyway, I chose a new character, that i had to make a snow suit for, and went back and viewed the headstone of my first character. Since this is the first time, it hit me kind of hard.
I also thought it would be nice to have something like a small epitaph for the character that the player could add. Just something special in remembrance of the character. If Chris or Keith could add maybe a small 200 character field or something?
Anyway, I am going to have to be more careful, and make sure of my weapons before hand and not get so close to my current level when exploring, if i don't want to lose my characters.
Anyway, thank you for everything and take care,
