Ah, PoD is legendary, both for its harshness and the impossible end battles. The tantrums are going to be epic, I'd wager.

I'm playing on the default difficulty with unmodified characters. I salute your decision to play with standard, unmodified characters. Two thumbs up! Unmodified is the only way to go! I detest modded superman characters with 18 in all stats. Rerolling is OK, of course, and I did quite a lot of it, but not to any excessive degree - I didn't spend longer than a minute rerolling per character.

I think I might post the character record screens of my party here (for laughs, I didn't min-max and go full munchkin on them, so AD&D veterans ought to be amused at least).
