Excellent work. You did a far better job of this than I ever would have.

I don't mean to sound pushy or selfish, but I think my current walkthorugh here may be a better option than the current one...

Check out my walkthroughs:
Character: here
Book I: here

Book II: here
Fathamurk: here
Book III: here

Yeah, there's something I realized recently that I needed to add to the Book I Strat. Central list. I can't remember if it was your walkthrough, something else, or both.

Anyway, I'll get to updating this in the next couple of weeks (maybe Thanksgiving before it happens though...).

OK, this has now been updated to include Vroqren's Book I walkthrough, and a link to SpottedShroom's Eschalon Wika (which is geared to Book II, but will still have lots of useful info for Book I).

I still feel like there was something else I was supposed to add to this list, but I can't figure out what it is - so if anyone notices something obvious missing from this list, please let me know!

Edit (12/05/11): I think I finally figured out the other thing I was supposed to add to the list! - MP & XP totals for monster/mobs/enemies has been added to the "Informational Topics: Quests, Items & Enemies" section.
