Well, I've run into my first real challenge in the game's combat - The unfortunately and decidedly unoriginally named Ba'al.

At the first attempt of the fight, my level 32 mage was zapped and mauled in under 30 seconds. So I'm currently licking the wounds back at the Battle Tower, restocking on potions and trying to raise resistances in as many ways as possible for another shot.

The game had a bit of a grinding lull after the dragon transformation and I haven't enjoyed it quite as much throughout the Orobos Fjords. I was hoping for much more open areas and bigger vistas for flying and exploration.
It's kind of ironic, but I think I had just as much fun playing Dragonstrike on the C64 all those years ago…

However, I do like the way the game made me feel as though I was just naturally playing the main quest when in fact I was doing side-quests. Before I knew it, I'd upgraded the whole Battle Tower.

Diddledy high,
Diddledy low,
Come brave blood sheep,
You've a goodly way to go.
