Man, this game is so difficult, but so rewarding and addictive. I can't even count the number of times I've died so far, which makes each little victory I do achieve even more rewarding. Still not far in... just past the red dragon (not sure of it's official name). Haven't bother trying to kill it, but I shot it's tail so I could get that powerful sword.
Contemplated starting again with a different character class (I'm a wanderer), but I've grown pretty attached to my guy; He might not be the powerhouse of a knight or warrior, and I haven't even dabbled in magic yet so I'm not sure what that will be like, but he seems like a good all-rounder choice, and I'm used to him now.
I can see the armoured warthog not far from my current camp... I'm going to die
