I've tried to play this great RPG via DosBox, but unfortunately it doesn't work. I can't save characters I make because the game asks for a char disk which, obviously, I don't have (my PC doesn't even have a floppy drive, so go figure). Now, is there a way to play this game by circumventing the creation?

Yes. You'll need an image of a blank floppy mounted as floppy drive A in DOSBox.

Could that simply be done by some mounted folder?
Would it have to be 1.44 Mb in size?
Or would you just have to tell DosBox that there is a mounted FDD?

Nevermind, problem solved. Probably the CFG got messed up, as it was looking for a non-existent save folder in A:\ drive. I've just set it back to the game folder and it worked like a charm.
