Loving the game so far. I made a human rogue.
I'm playing on Normal difficulty. I'm getting through okay so far, but man, after every fight not against spiders or wolves I have so many injuries.
Account of an early encounter:
I was exploring and found a cave. Sneak in, holy shit a bear. Nom nom dead. Huh. Tried several more times with the same result. I move on and find a guy saying a bear killed his friend up in a cave...for the love of god stay away from it or you'll meet the same end! Tell me about it, dude.
Now, I'm highly paranoid about exploring. It seems a few rooms into a dungeon there's a group of mobs that will just own me. So I wonder if I'm supposed to come back later or what? Once I beat that encounter, I'll round the corner and find a completely new enemy that I can't even dent. I hired a mercenary from a tavern and turned him into a shitty level 1 fighter. Definitely helps my squishy party of two...though he's pretty weak compared to my level 3 party.
Also, my rogue loses stealth once the other party members engage. Is this right? I swear one time I lured a mob just past a doorway and then had my rogue jump out and stab while still stealthed, but I haven't been able to recreate that scenario.
