The only problem I have with this game is that it takes too long to play.

This bank holiday weekend I will be playing with the following simple changes.

1) Start with 4 Gold.

2) Only require 4 instead of 7 points of dead enemies to gain a stat.

3) No limits on number of weapons and items that you can use or followers you can have, ( so yes you can wield 10 swords and wear 3 sets of armour )

Perhaps this may feel wrong in terms of story ( three swords and only two arms ), but frankly I think it'll make the game quicker and therefore better.

We started using any two monsters as an stat gain and that seems to be plenty to speed it up. I don't think all of the rest is required.

So strength based characters get a huge boost while the magic based ones get nothing? Or are you also playing a house rule where magic users can gain stats from killing enemies?

I've always played that way, wasn't aware I was playing wrong?

In the first and second edition, you cannot gain craft by turning in "trophies", only strength.

If you are referring to a different edition, then you posted in the wrong forum.

Played my game and it was a lot quicker.

Nevertheless I think this may have to go on the for-sale list. I dont have a hope of getting my wife to play
