Hi guys, I've played games with RTWP and enjoyed them, pillars of eternity most recently; This is a little different however and i'm still getting used to initiative (Wasteland 2 had that, right? - I did ok in that) Anyway, as a first time player and not really understanding how everything works I just want to make sure that dying is a common thing or if I just have a terrible party ( I don't think so but who knows) My first encounter was with the 2 giant spiders in Hommlet and even though I survived both my dwarven fighters ended up unconcious and so did my sorcerer So without going too much into detail about my stats I have two dwarven fighters both with strength 17 or above, my sorcerer has good wisdom and my wizard has good charisma - probably somewhere just as high as my dwarves have strength, I have a halfling with very good dex, sneak etc and a bard ( i don't quite know what im doing with the bard yet) Dwarves kitted out with a spiked chain and has spiked chain as a feat, other dwarf has an axe. Anyway, without rambling too much --- Am I expecting to die this much so early on, is this first encounter really supposed to be this hard? (I references K'aos Reynes walkthrough on gamefaqs which said this encounter was a cakewalk) So i just want to be encouraged that things will get better???? Also, is ther a hotkey to follow or track characters as they move??? Sorry for the rambling.
