I picked the wrong dialogue choice when I walked into the Dead Nations, pissed off Hargrimm by not believing he would spare me if I "submitted", and for whatever foolish reason, overwrote my quicksaves. My last hard save was an hour earlier in the Trash Warrens, and I ran off and did the Warren of Thought after that, so now I'm two hours out from my last hard save. Hargrimm has a huge, gigantic number of minions who will surround and kill me if I fight them. I suppose I could abuse the resurrection mechanic to slowly grind the ghouls down by letting TNO die over and over, but I can't get my spells back or heal my companions so even if I did kill all the ghouls, TNO, as a level 4 mage who's used up all his spells, is way too weak to beat Hargrimm, who fully heals himself every time I die. Am I going to have to do the Buried Village and the Catacombs all over again or is there a way to get around this/level grind somewhere else?
Really this game is kind of disappointing me. I expected some awesome role-playing and weird Planescape trippy stuff, but so far the game just wallows in squalor and gross-out comedy/shock value with lots of repetitive, unpleasant combat against trash mobs with characters who would probably get their asses kicked by a level 1 Baldur's Gate party fresh out of the Friendly Arm Inn. Can I please get at least a ranged weapon or something for TNO somewhere
so he doesn't have to stand there in melee with his awful AC and get butchered?
"Buff your mental stats," they said. "It will unlock dialogue options," they said. I should have just rolled high STR and DEX and stayed a fighter. Being a wizard with 13 CON, 9 STR, and 12 DEX and trying to stab people with a tiny little knife makes me sympathize with Xan's worldview.
