Greetings all. So just the other day I caught myself wishing for a good long game of Legend of Grimrock. So I turned it on, created my new party...and immediately remembered why this excellent game has sat unplayed on my hard drive for months.
I hate the Mage.
Now I know I can create my own party. Sans mage, even. But I am worried I will reach some mysterious puzzle and find I need the mage in order to continue. I was hoping that someone from the RPS community could lend a hand here and assure me that I in fact do not absolutely need the mage. Since I don't enjoy using one. Playing with a mage in the party is almost as little fun as many of the puzzles (to me - this is entirely subjective, I know, and only a matter of taste.) I have no problem with the quality of puzzles in Grimrock, mind. Rather, I suck at them.
Which leads to my other question about this game: Does anyone have any recommendations for good modded maps that have no puzzles? Or perhaps that are light on complex puzzles? Maps which are just straight forward, dungeon crawling fun? I would very much appreciate any recommendations. I enjoy the game; I loathe the mage; I hate puzzles in most any game, but that is, again, a matter of taste, not quality.
