Well I'm late to this thread so my early tips here probably don't matter for you anymore but I'll just put them in anyway.

At the very beginning of the game, when you get to the hermit's hut, off to the right is a small 'gnoll' like structure at the top of a hill that overlooks a small farm. You can get on top of that gnoll and find yourself a nice bow and some arrows.

When you head down to the farm that the gnoll overlooks, you'll get a quest to kill some boars that are much too difficult to kill early on. But if you aggro those boars and run back to the farm and climb on the roof, you can shoot them with your bow.

I did this on my 2nd playthrough of Risen. I find it a lot of fun to kill things I can't melee early on. Not sure if anyone else does though.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
