Making money is getting too rewarding in this game.
I went back to Westfall and immediately made the acquaintance of Lian, a paladin. In a weekend full of interesting partnerships, this was the best.
We attacked farmhouses, outrunners and longsnouts, killing a bunch of Delfias rogues. I am beginning to understand what makes good partnerships good. He talked a lot, and I talked back. Perhaps it helped that we were both at the limitations of our characters, monster-wise. We needed to work together more, pre-battle, sharpening swords and swapping protections/healing/potions for the best chance at survival.
We both died a bunch of times, most memorably at the mouth of a mine in the Gold Cliffs. It was a battle-place which sucked us both in, looking deceptively possible, but remaining completely beyond the two of us. At the mouth of this cave, two tough enemies summoned a third from within the cave.
and they beat us every time.
I was disarmed a couple of times, which is really nasty, especially when you don't notice immediately. Despite losing, we were having a lot of fun. Eventually we got sick of losing and moved to a different area a little further up the coast.
We had a little reminder of what winning was like, and time flew by until it got late and our bags became full of treasures.
