(Yo, Deekin: what part of "Attack Nearest" didn't you understand?)
It wouldn't be as hard if I still had my necklace of fireballs, but -- OH YEAH! I used it up to get to the end of the friggin' level. 0.o
Okay, so I guess I need to go back to an earlier save and hit the magic shop for a ton of scrolls of any and all area affect spells I can get, because my only hope is to come in like a meteor shower and knock 'em all dead in a couple of rounds -- otherwise, I'm just going to keep getting "You are dead. Do you wish to load a saved game or quit playing?" for the rest of eternity.
When a hasted 11th-level elvish fighter/rogue with SR 14, AC 29, +3 to all saves, owl's wisdom, cat's grace, endurance, and bull's strength -- who then lets fly with two cones of cold to start the fight -- is dead within five rounds and there are still 8+ mooks and an uninjured boss still standing, THE FIGHT IS TOO DAMN HARD. Crikey.
-The Gneech <-- would like to see the end credits, but not THAT badly
