As I stated elsewhere, I have always thought branded weapons phased out too early. With 'Battle Blessings', this is even more so. Lightning and acid brands are suddenly better than almost any other...

Playing paladin first time in forever.

Book 1 is fine, though it'd be nice if See Invisible duration scaled with CL, like the other minor buffing spells.

Book 3 is killer, even though I can only cast slay evil with marginal...

Really enjoying Paladin book 3

Book 2 is sort of a let-down, with a healing spell i can't cast, nor afford to cast whenever its fail rate gets down.
But book 3 is great, even with just the first spell at 35% fail. My BoC of...

I might consider a ring of strength. -2 speed is a way bigger risk than a bit of stealth would get. It might even be worth the 130+ HP you would lose.

I found your assertion highly improbable because I know MS still writes kernel code, and kernel adjacent code like device drivers, in C. C++ is just not a good language for this kind of thing. There...

NPP had a quiver first. Then NPP 0.5 came along and I couldn't stand it--just wall to wall monsters. Too exhausting. I do like the terrain system tho.

Definitely agree about the Heal300 spell. The heal2000 spell is stupid overkill for a paladin. If you really need it, you can't risk casting it. Meanwhile, you're out 50MP when you...

Is there any chance of a tile size between 1 and 2? One is hard to read, but 2 means I can see only a small part of town. The tile dimension ratios are 100% (2:1), 50%(3:2), 33%(4:3), 50%(6:4).
