While primarily used for killing vampires, a wooden stake to the heart is also highly effective against most other opponents.

Welcome to the realm, Robert.

It has been a 36 year obsession for me about which I have no regrets, (almost) only fond memories.

As I saw it put best...
"If I had to summarize Magic Realm in one thought, it would be that Magic Realm hates you. It hates you, your character, your family, friends, and everything you hold dear in life. It is a deadly place, and it will laugh at your meager attempts to survive within it. You will be eaten by dragons, crushed by trolls, stabbed to death by hobgoblins, turned into a fog, be blinded trying to read a book, cursed to never heal, or backstabbed by a group of NPCs in a trade gone wrong. Just when you think you've gotten the inside track on surviving, the game will find a new way to kill you."

Ahhhh... perfection....

Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation.

A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals, and you know it.

I'm a feder-allergic and I blame the Klingon for not having smashed the Federation in time to save us from Star Trek serials.

Well put, "Magic Realm hates you." I had this game in the early 80's and at one point I mailed several rules questions to Avalon Hill. All were addressed, but I remember one in particular. I'd asked about coming upon monsters in caves and said something like, "It seems almost a sure death to find a monster in a cave." The reply was simply, "Exactly!"

That was the point, to mimic what it would truly be like to try to survive in that environment.
