The fastest road to easy money is by starting a new game with two monks.
Transfer both the money and book of resurrection to one monk then quit the game.
Start a new game with that same monk and another new monk, repeating the process until inventory is full of books and money. Ideally transfer books to a fighter with a good trade skill and sell all the books bringing in a total of about 180,000gp.
Deposit gold and repeat.
The Spell Of Choice For Magic Users
The spell of choice for magic users, especially between levels 1 and 20, is the Magic Bomb.
This is a magical contact grenade that you can drop directly onto your enemy's head, even from around a corner or through a wall. I never saw a monster resist it, and it does around 30 to 70 points of damage per hit.
Begin a new game and give all money from one character to the other character (money holder).
Start another new game, and select the money holder as one character and create an entirely new character.
Transfer 1500 gold from the new character to the money holder.
Repeat as needed to build your gold total.
When playing as the thief,
You can steal from the chickens in town.
Your reward is entirely appropriate
For a lovely bonus in the single-player game,
toss some coins in the bard's tray
(in the center of town.)
The Time Orb
, once you have it, still won't do you a lot of good in the battle against Draak.
It has only one charge, and its effect doesn't last long.
You have to do hundreds of points of damage to Draak in about 30 seconds if you want to win the fight.
Tired Of Getting Killed
Are you tired of getting killed over and over by spike traps and mines while you're trying to get to the treasure?
The problem often can be solved by one or two Scrolls of Telekinesis, or a Scroll of Teleport.
They cost a few gold pieces, but can save you a lot of time.
Hint Avoid Player Killer Problems
Use the following steps to save your game when playing over a network.
Copy your save files to another directory that is outside of the DarkStone directory before joining a network game.
To restore a save, reload DarkStone from the CD, then copy the saves from the outside directory.
Note: Make sure all three saves are copied.
