I would also recommend everyone to read Jeff Vogel's blog entry entitled "Make Your Game Easy. Then Make It Easier" from November 19, 2009. http://jeff-vogel.blogspot.com/2009/...it-easier.html

If you don't like clicking forum-links you can find Vogel's blog at Spiderweb's homepage, just google spiderweb software and the blog is located at the bottom center of the homepage under quick links
Thanks for the insightful reply - I really got a lot out of the link to Vogel's blog and I agree with it from the standpoint of a both a gamer and a writer.

I think this is just a matter of Steven including a greater variety of toggles within the configuration files. There have been a lot of ideas tossed around in the forums and, although from a development point of view it's mostly being heard, I think a few additional toggles would go a long way to alleviating some gripes and groans.

I think that's a great idea and I hope Steven implements either that or perhaps lowers the speed on the mana steal attack to be more in line with with other monster projectiles.
