I am a nerd. I copied a ton of information on the character classes (levels of spells, AF gear and combat skills) and then bound them while at work so that I have a book with the information in it.
I got to 13 last night on my warrior...then promptly died and fell to 12. We are trying to get through Buburimu to get to Valkurm. We have decided to wait until 15ish then try again, unless we can get someone to escort us.
