So, you've already become a Destroyer and are wondering what else to do. Here are a few more challenging games for playing Eschalon that we thought of, if you've already finished the game playing "normally":
No Magic. Play the entire game without casting a single spell (this is actually pretty easy; I basically did this using my fighter character).
Speed Game. What is the shortest period of time that you can complete the game?
Kill Everything. ALL LIVING CREATURES MUST DIE. Good or evil, townsfolk or monsters. Obviously you will also acheive Destroyer by doing this. This one is tricky because you have to time the quests just right, and you will lose the shops. I like the idea of "harvesting" a town once you've completed all the quests. Mwa, ha, ha.
No Alchemy. You cannot make or use any potions for the game. This one would present a real challenge. The ban includes Demon Oil but does not include wicks/oil for lamps. You are not allowed to imbue weapons.
Rich Merchant. You must increase your Merchant skill to 30 before increasing any other skill other than the skills you start with.
Pauper. You may not assign any skill points during the start of the game or during your level-ups. Purchasing from trainers or using items is OK.
The Shadow. You may not use any light sources at all during the game. Artificial vision (e. g. Cat Eyes) is allowed.
Survivorman. You may only place skill points into Survival, Alchemy, and Cartography, other than the skills you start with. You may not purchase any items from shops until you get to "civilization" (i. e. Blackwater).
Lover, not a Fighter. You may not wield or swing a weapon in anger, ever. (Bare fists are allowed).
Pure Mage. You may not wield or swing a weapon other than dagger or staff; you may not place more than 3 points in either of these skills. (Bare fists are allowed).
Noob. You must finish the game with the least amount of experience possible. (obviously this means combat is discouraged)
There Can Be Only One. You may only assign skill points to one skill both at the start and during the entire game. Note that this will leave you with unused points at level-up.
Iron Man. You may not Save except when quitting the game. You may never reload except when first starting the game (e. g. no Save-Reload). If you die, you die. Game Over.
= Daddy, can I play?
= No worries, mate.

= Whatchu talking 'bout, Willis?
