I cleared Kuto's Well area and killed the Bandit band and their leader, Norris the Gray. That must have been awesome because the game informed that I can now rest in the sewers. Lucky me. I am more excited, because this is the first area/block I manage to clear.
Norris' corpse had a curious letter addressed to him by one that like to call himself 'The Boss'. He instructed him to assemble a band and meet another band of hobgoblins in the city's docks and follow the orders of the hobgoblin leader. Norris' didn't like this and had prepared a reply saying so. Alas, he met my band first and now he is in no state to mail his reply.
I thought that slums are the ones to clear first, but that troll infested room is proving to be a challenge. I am terrified of the trolls and don't want to go near them until I level up some more.
So, while exploring, I entered Sokal Keep and cleared that too. I didn't get much exp from the battles, but once reported in the City Hall, I get a very large amount of experience. And a mission in the textile house, something about retrieving someone's family treasure. I didn't pay enough attention because I was planning on going there anyway.
Afterwards, I did a little fooling around and then tried to clear the slums again, without success. The trolls are still very high level. I managed to escape with a few death, luckily my wealth is large enough, so a few Raise Dead spells did not set me back considerably. I skipped the trolls for the time being (perhaps I am doing something wrong in the Slums?) and headed for the textile house.
At this time, I noticed the encumbrance was becoming a problem. Some members of the team could not move far enough. The main cause of this was the large amount of coins I was carrying. Since I had an obscene amount of jewelry on me, I decided to drop most of my platinum coins. I had heard that the game economy was broken, but this was a joke!
