I remember that Jean!!! Too funny. I didn't use the spell much in DD, and not at all in BD - no particular reason, just enjoyed the visual effects of others more.
I ended the game at level 32 or 33, can't remember, but I didn't do a lot of the BFs. Sounds like you're just about through!
For anyone who didn't buy the fanpack from Digital Jesters - the music is outstanding!!! Mostly stuff from DD, I think.
Threads, I think the difference in Morrowind is that you could be playing it the rest of your life.
The graphics are so stunning, and the choices are so many that sometimes it is a bit daunting, but I will bet that you have a great time ahead of you!
