I have five in my party :
Me, a Knight
Simon, the other Knight I met on my first visit to the Temple.
A Necromancer from The Adventurer's Inn.
A Vampire, also from the inn.
And the Cleric.
We have an assortment of rudimentary magics between us and now
we each have either a bow or crossbow.
Along the way as I've been gathering my team (and my wits !!) I've visited two other islands and done the "Disperse the Cure Potions Quest) and also (to gain experience and cash etc) engaged with bunches of Pirates all over the place.
I guess I need to do more of the Pirate fighting but keep trying the Temple inbetween times until I make some headway in there
