Should I import an 8th level character with full gear to play this, or create a new one with nothing? It makes a huge difference in how the game plays. An 8th level character would normally have some pretty good gear and a moderate amount of gold to work with, but if you start a new character in the game, you start with nothing.
That doesn't feel right for a mod that wants you to start at level 8, and apparently doesn't take away any gear you bring with you. (Which Hordes of the Underdark did, and explained it in the story, and immediately let you know you were expected to start over and find new gear, a lot of which is provided immediately.)
I'm a bit at a loss about how to start this. I have a level 8 wizard from the OC with nothing better than +1 items, a level 8 wizard from Saga of Aielund with extremely powerful wizard items, such as a cross bow that shoots unlimited magic missiles, or I can start with a new level 8 wizard who has nothing.
I wish there was a little more guidance in game about it.
