Apparently this game has a time limit to get the sword and kick orc butt. If you do not get the sword within 2 in-game years, you lose. This puts a bit of a downer on this game...should be no time limit if it is not real-time game. Also text-bug in the blacksmith is really idea if patch exists for it.

@Don: Of course it's dated, it's from '93...

The graphics and controls are very dated, but if you can cope, this (and its two sequels) is one of the best RPGs in many respects: Great Story, huge world/background, great character creation flexibility, complex yet easy-to-understand game mechanics, vast amount of simulation.

PROTIP: Take two non-magic using characters at max, also ignore all classes but the elves, the dwarf, the warrior and the mage. They suck.
