    Nice! I've actually thought of doing the exact thing with the Spatterlight myself! Hadn't thought about the ring of arcana- made this guy before I got the DLC and haven't done much in them with Cugel. Solstheim in general would likely rip him apart. I can't recall how often I died... I likely avoided Draugr deathlords lol. Pretty sure around level 30 or so (whenever Elder Dragons come about) I couldn't survive to such a degree that I thought he was for sure at his "level cap", but I didn't take advantage of any vampiric powers or play him any smarter. Nowadays, being so familiar with the game, I think I could pull him off on Adept easily and maybe put 150 health on him for glancing hits. Wind shear really allows you to hold your own in combat, or at least escape it whenever. But you really do have to choose your battles, even on novice. Nothing too epic or overwhelming. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed the Dying Earth! Apparently everyone in the Vault who has read it has loved it. Gotta pitch something here, read Lyonesse, The Demon Princes, and Planet of Adventure. Lol. Just... Just readem. I'll get around to finishing the dreamer before the year ends xD

    Oh, cool, thanks. I didn't realize Vance had written any other fantasy books lol. I'll definitely read those though. None are directly related to Dying Earth though, are they? From reading Wikipedia things on them it doesn't sound like it. Not that that'll make me not want to read them lol.

    Lyonesse is great fantasy trilogy, and the magic system comes from the Dying Earth (so expect some badass wizards lol). The bulk of his other stuff is usually sci-fi, but always exceptionally well written anyway. I'm not much for scifi novels unless its Vance xP Lemme know if you end up playing the build :)

    All images have been restored for this build. While I try my best to keep the formatting as close to the original as possible, there are some unavoidable differences as a result of differing platforms... for this I apologize.

    Also, please feel free to remove the 'Restored' banner at the end of the build--I put it there as a courtesy to let the reader know that the build has been worked on by somebody other than its original creator without his or her knowlege.
