    Given the low number of hitpoints, the lack of a party and the chances of being ambushed by thieves while traveling, is there any way to store part of your money and some items that you don't need at the moment in a strongbox somewhere and avoid being cleaned out?

    The Commercium, at least, should be able to offer banking services. You leave your money with them and they give you a letter of credit that can be used to draw cash in some other town. It's better than to get to your destination broke.

    That's exactly what we have (inspired by Daggerfall). You can also make fake letters of credit, if your skill is high enough.

    Haha, this is my favorite codex drama since I joined. Well, with the possible exception of Roqua/Bryce, but that was a little too sad to fully appreciate.

    Originally by Bill Hicks, but the version he has in his sig I think is from a Tool song.

    Damn, Hicks. Knew I heard it somewhere before. That was one great comedian that died way too early. The tool people are apparently big fans of him btw.

    Is there frequent use of money beyond buying equipment?

    You can give bribes, sponsor a small war, maintain your own raiders, enslave nations with necromancy, etc.

    Not from a Tool song, but from http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Bill_Hicks

    @ Vault Dweller

    Thanks for the info. I hope you're not joking about sponsoring a small war. :D

    Don't wanna start a new topic since it probably has been answered already, but have you guys taken any measures to stop people from milking dialogue trees (i.e. keep repeating the conversation until you get the right answer combo)?

    Yes.

    The only way to save this particular world is to wipe everyone out, but that's not one of the options. One of my favorite endings is to restore a god, convince it that the mankind has wronged it, and become the First Acolyte. You'll be able to manifest your God's powers and force the remaining Noble Houses into submission.

    "One of my favourite endings..." - You should have stopped reading there. :)

    Anyway, thank You for the info, VD. That sounds extremely promising.

    Yikes . . . normally I think Jasede gets a little too pissy about the spoilers, but this one was pretty bad. Some warning would have been good . . .

    Actually, why would you post the ending at all? That seems sort of weird to me.
