    Keep an eye on this for me, and let me know if it keeps happening. If it does, how often. Like I said, I made some changes, but to be honest Im not sure why these changes would matter.

    Also, do you have any firewall or anything on your PC?

    I'm just kinda bummed, because I'm level 2 and when fighting other level 2 monsters they tend to hit me about twice as much as I hit them. So I consistently lose to creatures at the same level even though my gems help me start one or two points higher. If I can get a win it's by using my sidekick ability on the first fight of the day.

    Gems? Then you are a Gnome? Ive never tried to play as them. I can tell you from experience that Trolls and Klingons are good. But each race has its own perks.

    Thanks.

    The comment after a skirmish - the one which I have bolded here.

    You hit Deranged Gnome for 1 points of damage!
    Deranged Gnome tries to hit you but you RIPOSTE for 2 points of damage!
    What happens when I do THIS?
    You have slain Deranged Gnome!
    You receive 29 gold!
    You find A GEM!
    ***Because of the simplistic nature of this fight, you are penalized 4 experience!
    (14 - 4 = 10) You receive 10 total experience!

    ~~ Flawless Fight! ~~
    A more difficult fight would have yielded an extra turn.
    EDIT - This is observed in the Forest. The Graveyard has text in a black color bold font.

    I observe that the disconnected phenomenon happens when I open another window and browse the forums. But that's not the case every time.

    I don't have a personal firewall on my PC but I'm behind a corporate firewall.

    Yea here's another one.

    Warning! Players are immune from Player vs Player (PvP) combat for their first 5 days in the game or until they have earned 1500 experience, or until they attack another player. If you choose to attack another player, you will lose this immunity!
    You head out to the fields, where you know some unwitting warriors are sleeping.

    You have 3 PvP fights left for today.

    There are no available targets.


    As you listen to different people around you talking, you glean the following additional information:
    There is
    1 person sleeping in Glorfindal whom you might find interesting.

    Yes, I am a gnome (I didn't intend to be, but I clicked on gnome hoping just to get more info and it wouldn't let me back-track).

    Here's what I mean by not being able to hit much:
    ~ ~ ~ Fight ~ ~ ~

    You have encountered Fie which lunges at you with Short Sword!

    Level: 2

    Start of round:
    Fie's Hitpoints: 20
    YOUR Hitpoints: 1

    You execute a minor power move!
    You hit Fie for 3 points of damage!
    Fie hits you for 1 points of damage!
    You have been defeated by Fie!
    Fie halts just before delivering the final blow, and instead extends a hand to help you to your feet, and hands you a complementary healing potion.
    You should have known you were no match for my Short Sword
    I started that battle with 21 hp, and only hit him once. Our levels are equal, and I'm only supposed to need 400xp to be able to challenge him (I have > 500).

    When you go to slay other players, and it tells you about people in other towns you might find interesting, that text is all white.
