The starting dungeon is punishingly difficult for a ranger archetype. A bow can’t be used with a torch, but an archer can’t hit anything in darkness. Arrows run out. Arrows cost money. Complete it on level 1 without the Cat’s Eyes spell? No chance, not without game reload after reload. But I like that about the game: in order to succeed the adventurer must have the right skills for the job. No namby pamby “let’s make all the combat skills functionally equivalent” aRPG nonsense for Eschalon.
