Blaatman is right, Michael is a great Magic Char, after 20 fights or so when he got magic 2 he was a one man army.
I am now in the white tower and don't think I'll keep playing, its not much fun.
You have to keep in mind that it was made after Westwood lost (I think?) the AD&D license, and it was just a ramped up Eye of the Beholder like game. And for that I think it succeeded. The CD version was released after the initial disk release, so the original was something to satiate the people after the disappointment that was EoB3. It is more of an adventure, but neither of the early Gold Box games or the EoB games had much of "role play". As for the magic attack 4, rest thing.. meh. Why? This is a prime example of trying to make it boring for yourself. Why not use your party? Melee attacks? Ranged attacks? Anyway, to each his/her own I guess. Though LoL certainly can't hold the candle to Dark Sun: The Shattered Lands that came out around the same time, I do think it is a pretty solid addition to the CRPG legacy.

It was and still is a great game. Some people just spoil their own fun when comparing it too much with other, more real rpg-ish games.

Re-bought it right after it was released on GOG (bundled with the second game).

Exclamation Help, how to remove Lora

When returning from caves i took Lora again. When you go downstairs to chamber where you took her first time there is no Lora, but when you return back she is in your companion again and says "Thanks again".

I was palying with Lora till Paulsen, and game freases when there are 4 players.

Is there way to remove Lora before Paulsen or to play game from start?

Please help.

Unfortunately there're only two ways to get rid of the problem. One is trying to hex-edit your savegame and remove Lora's data from your party, which is rather complicated and probably won't entirely work anyway. The other one is load a savegame before you got Lora in your party on your way out from Daracle's caves.
If you don't have any savegame left before this point, I'm afraid the only thing left for you to do is to start a new game, since there's no other way to avoid the crash when Paulson is about to join you.

It must be a bug indeed, in the floppy version of the game. I never encountered such a bug in the CD version of it (the one with Lore of the Lands, with the voice of Patrick Steward).

Default Paulson unconscious

After spending several hours fighting monsters to boost my character stats, I was finally (and barely) powerful enough to survive the never-ending onslaught of ogres to find the one carrying the cube. However, Paulson was knocked unconscious, and though I've healed him, he just won't wake up, and I can't figure out why. I'd really like to have his sword and magic with me as I take on the white tower. Anyone have an idea how I can wake him?

Default Fighter rogue mage limits?

Does anyone know, what are the limits of fighter/rogue/mage skills? I think Baccata has limited the fighter skill by 10, because when in the Dungeon after killing all the Knowless, all characters are leveling up. But when Baccata is to get level, the game just stucks.

Default I'm missing medicine

I played all the way through this game only to not have any medicine left at the end of the game to unlock the final boss. what would be the hex edit to get medicine, or the hex edit to get the silver key? Is there another way besides stating over? I went back through some of the forest levels checking every stump I could find, but nothing.
