Litz, nice accomplishment if true although I agree with Bin that you might have photoshopped out your other party members. Or maybe you just used the safe spot...

It is so, don't you see the fork? Ordinary items don't have the fork but the fork adds +1 stabbiness to to the plate.

Litz you have ascended to God like status with that artist rendition of your accomplishment. AWSOME!!!

Speaking about the commodore 64, are you aware that they had a D&D Game on it called "Pool of radiance". It was awesome. To log on you had a puzzle disk that came with game and you had to put in the code symbols to start the game. It came complete with dungeons and outside environment, with dragons etc. Turbine should take note from that game very imaginative yet kept to D&D rules!!!!

Had many fun times on that game, i might go back and play some, only if i had a commadore 64.

Alot of old D&D games were also on the Amiga 500 too, and you can download all the Floppys(.ADF) and WinUAE. The hard part is finding KickStart.

Pool of Radiance
Curse of the Azure Bonds
Secret of the Silver Blades
Pools of Darkness
Gateway to the Savage Frontier
Treasures of the Savage Frontier
Eye of the Beholder 1,2,3

Some Dragonlance series of games
Ultima series
Wizardry series- I still play the Amiga version on my computer.
Phantasie1, 2, 3 - a really old roleplaying game

Dungeon Master- the first 3D action roleplaying ever and still my all time favorite series

congratulations on a great effort Litz its great to see someone finally solo the black abbot 'cause i thought this game was somehow becoming less uber.

i really miss those bragging threads, it sadden me that noone is making the effort anymore to improve their self-esteem, in a game they pay for, while having limited or no social skills.

i think they should get rid of voicechat it isnt useful for soloing anyway and perhaps people could get rewarded for soloing in some way so they can get more uber loot to make soloing a more enjoyable experience.

maybe we should just have more open areas and less quests i mean noone really does all the quests anyway.

Note: That screenshot is UBAR

Good idea. Solo Mode should give +100% xp and have +4 loot levels - and be extended to all quests.
