Well, he's dead.

Got a job to guard a residence. Went to the wrong residence twice because my eyes would apparently not into map.

Then got poisoned by the burglars and died of... lack of magicka? After my magicka hit zero, my health dropped to zero and then died. Got to level 2.

Anyway, I think my next play will be more conventional wrt reloading.
Previous experience tells me it's very easy to misunderstand the tone, intent, or meaning of what I've posted. If you have questions, ask.

Ah, that's too bad. I've been making general exceptions for things that I know are unbalanced, which in my case are diseases. I know you're not intended to sleep for 13 hours peacefully and then wake up dead, so I discount those cases :lol:

I needed a break from the typical Daggerfall scene, so here's a pacifist!

The only rules are to not die and not kill anything :) Enemy infighting is disabled.

Privateer's Hold was a rush, where I just grabbed as much loot as I could on my way out. Now I have a proper character and I'm starting questing. And of course, in typical roguelike fashion, I found this in the first dungeon:

My pacifist made it to level 3, and was teleported by the Mages Guild into a dungeon. I could've easily Recalled out, but to me that's cheese, so I started walking. The whole thing was full of animals, so I couldn't pacify anything. Things very quickly turned for the worse, and I was trapped by 2 bears and a tiger. :cry:

My new character is going to only ever use magic to attack. So far the going has been very difficult, but I might be using the wrong type of attack spell.

EDIT: He's dead, Jim! Died at level 1 trying to get research notes back from a Dark Brotherhood assassin. I'm going for a more normal character this time, but who can only use Alteration magic:

EDIT 2: Forgot Immunity to Paralysis! NEXT!

For most of my characters I'm racing out of PH, none of them can handle the combat :D I give myself an exception for the first dungeon though, if I die in it I just reload. It doesn't make much sense to me to recreate the same character over and over just so I can get out ;)

Wait, you guys are playing daggerfall with permadeath? :lol:
I'm all for permadeath games, but in games that take tens of hours to build your character I find it a bit anticlimactic most of the time.

Yeah, I'm going to alter that for awhile until DFU gets a bit more balanced. Right now spiders and scorpions are guaranteed death, and who knows what magic users will be like.

I'll come back to it, I will! We'll just see what adjustments DFU undergoes in the meantime :)

EDIT: Maybe I'll try a Tales of Maj'Eyal system where you have limited lives rather than instant permadeath. Immortality via timeline control still seems dull, even with all the surprises DFU brings :lol:

EDIT 2: All right let's do this! LEEROY JENKINS!! 10 lives!
