Hi Dark, Well, one of the problems is I'm not finding any scrolls like that here. I once found a curse scroll, and a shrink scroll but that is it. The general store in Twilight Town absolutely sucks. All I've ever seen there is poor and dubious quality weapons, and now and then a sspell scroll. Other than that it is basically a useless feature of the game. I wonder if my problem is that I'm playing the demo and Jason has intentionally removed certain weapons, scrolls, etc required to play the game effectively, or Jason is intentionally forcing you to find this stuff at random. If so I'm not having a lot of luck finding good equipment and scrolls to use against the Drake, or even against the Goblin King for that matter. In my last battle he almost single handedly whiped my party out. So to be completely honest here while I do like the game it isn't designed for a new player at all. I'm having extreme difficulty playing it, and I'm growing extremely frustrated with it. I would like to see the game be better balanced and some of these enemies made slightly easier. That's coming from someone who normally doesn't complain about a game being difficult, but I find Entombed insanely so. Perhaps someone could write a manual or strat guide that actually explains something in detail? One of the reasons I haven't purchased the game is I think Jason needs to provide some documentation for the game. I keep trying to look something up only to get the message that this or that is not available yet. Well, if he wants to sell the game Jason is going to have to write some detailed documentation or get someone who is a skilled player to write it. I'm growing sick and tired of not having a manual for the game. I'm of half a mind to write him personally and ask him to hurry up and write the manual so I have something to refer too.I should not have to ask the list how to target a body part, because the so-called documentation doesn't bother to mention it. Needless to say I'm a bit ticked off that I'm obviously missing a good portion of information because the documentation absolutely sucks.
