After some talk in another thread about spiderweb, i decided to take another plunge and buy this one.
Started out great, tough but not impossible on normal. Got to level 8 with my characters, a death here and there, pretty cool says i. I didnt expect a whole city, just figured itd be an escape back to the surface type story os that was another plus.
then the brakes were applied.
It got old real damn quick, consistently losing at least 1 if not the whole party in what looked to be something that should have been a relatively standard battle. Then i saw a pattern arise, pretty much every monster was hitting 2 to 3 times, per round, and both my fighters missed about every 4th turn, if not more often. Mages started missing with spells, consistently.
Thought i may have gone south too far, not the case. Still in the north where its supposed to be "easier", and getting my arse handed to me by everything.
Still a fun game though, and for what i paid, still worth what i spent.
I do get a bit irritated though, having to put it on casual, since i consider normal more difficult than what should be "normal" at this level.
Taking into consideration this was my first day of gameplay, not ready to give up the ship yet!!!!
But as it stands now, i feel like im playing a game of old fashioned DnD where the DM relished killing players.
