Ingie, I was only playing for half an hour yesterday. Have found the barracks and am about to enter the cave to get a key for the cellars at Blue Boar Inn.

Spent most of that 30 minutes trudging back to the barracks to pick up my pyramid - why did I think of you on that journey. It is the first time it has happened to me.

See you,

God Bless,

Alice

Possible spoiler.

Got killed by the vampire when I released the boy.

Replayed - released two scorpions before opening the coffin. They dispatched the vampire before I even knew she had appeared! Why didn't I think of that before? laugh

My sister and I have DD but it is our first rpg. We started it once but left it because we were uncertain as to what we are suppose to do right at the beginning. How do you know which is the best person to "play" as a beginner and what are you suppose to be doing once you start the game?

Hi Kaki's Sister...
There really is no right or wrong way to start..but the general rule for RPG is a mage is harder at first, quite weak and until he/she levels up; it is difficult; but oh boy once they level.

The first time for me was this game and I choose a thief; er...survivor. And managed quite well.
This game allows you to go into the other skill paths to pick up and learn those skills as well..so it's not like you're "locked" into that role and can't play around with other roles.
I played as a Warrior once, by far the easiest to choose..much stronger and winning all fights at first.
Tried the mage, which was fun, but I also in reality was more a battle mage, I like a nice sword.
I suggest, start one of each character and play around a bit and see which character fits you..it's well worth the time and very interesting.

Alice, Yep we love those little darlings...

What Popcorn said. I do think playing as a warrior is easiest, mainly because of the "special move" he has, but for me it wasn't half as much fun as the mage. That's just me though. Luckily you can use skills from all three disciplines, so you can use say, pickpocket from the survivor stuff etc. as you go along in the game, even if you are a warrior or a mage. You get to choose your skills as you progress in experience, so no one character is likely to be like another.
How you start : after picking your character, when you can actually play, you need to investigate the town you're in, talking to everyone, and moving anything you can, picking up everything that isn't nailed down. It's non-linear to a large degree, and there are quests (mini-adventures) to accomplish right in the beginning, which will make your character improve. Go into all the houses, look for trap doors. Wear a pan on your head if you want to. laugh And remember the RPG golden rule: Save, save, save.

Katki's Sister - nice to meet you.

The advice you have been given by Nickie and Ingie is good. Am playing for the second time. As I wanted to get stronger before entering the catacombs I sold all the food I'd found to George, bought a cheap weapon, and went outside to clear the area around Aleroth of orcs. This increased my experience and also I picked up goodies to sell and a little gold.

Something I did not know until a few days ago (!) that having food in the inventory is useful to use instead of potions when running short of health.

Hope this helps. DO SAVE OFTEN - if you don't you'll be sorry laugh

Postscript.

One gets so wrapped up in the game it is so easy to forget to save. Often I have found myself going over large areas to get back to where I was killed. Frustrating, to say the least.

Nice to meet you to threads.Thank you so much for the advice on how to play DD. Ingie, nickie and threads I will pass the word to my sister and we will try to play together long distance (Kaki is a Seattle Boomer).
This is going to sound silly but how do you get stronger? Do all the characters talk to you and can you actually talk back? I had played a little and found my character didn't always "talk" I just got the conversation in closed caption - no sound.

Not silly at all, KS. You get stronger by completing quests and killing monsters. In the very beginning you have several quests you can do, like heal the wounded soldier, get a plant from a garden (I would suggest you ask rather than steal it, LOL).
There is so much dialogue in the game that a lot of it is only captioned, rather than spoken out loud. Kind of strange, but the developers were trying to keep the system specs down so more people could play it.

Hi - can anyone tell me where I can find A Bag of Holding, please? Am carrying this enormous bed around in my inventory, doesn't weigh anything but takes up a heck of a lot of room. Also - am I correct in thinking it has to be dragged out of the inventory to use?

I've found that when I revisit an area where I'd released scorpions they are still around and are busy knocking off other baddies - they leave a lot of goodies to pick up laugh

Night night all ZZZZZzzzzz

Threads it's a book that you need to put the bed into. I think it's in Rob's room in the Thieve's Guild.
Just drag the bed into the book and you will always have a bed when you need it.
Have fun with your game.

Thanks Texaslady! Every time I've played I've just left the big bed in inventory, because it cracks me up. I think if I'm not mistaken that I just had to click on it to use it though.
