If you've read the Belgariad, you should go on to the Mallorean. Eddings' series The Elenium and The Tamuli, in my opinion, are better then the Belgariad. The Obsidian trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory was pretty good. If you've never read the original 3 Dragonlance chronicles I highly su...

From the "Who Are You Calling Vile" adventure.

Hidden amidst the thick, jungle-like vegetation, you find what looks like a hermit's shack on the outside, but turns out to me more like a hermit's laboratory on the inside.

Should be to be.

Your neighborhood - Just Keep Walking

This adventure gives you +1 hp permanently. Doesn't seem like that big a deal and it wouldn't add up to all that much. However I just spent 21 hours worth of patrolling there and I think that particular adventure crops up way to often. In those 21 hours I got 29 baseball bats, and 100 hp. Thats quit...

Rather than a strict percent, I could see adding in some incremental requirements that trigger every time the item price hits another digit. Minimum of 5 chips for anything over 100. 50 chips at 1000. 500 chips at 10,000, and so on? That would also do quite well! Anything to stop the last minute 1 ...

Did that, got my level at the hero's guild, and went to adventure at the bay again. Patrolled 4 or 5 times before I realized I wasn't w...
