No, not specifically looking for combat, but the assignments seem to have it show up. Also, the character has been foretold to die at age 37, yet I reached age 35 very fast. I also got trapped in the Parody Quest, which kept going and going.
Gk, are you still involved in [ROK 2]? I was doing that for a while. I may get back into again, but will need to create another character for it. But, definitely paying a visit to the [Palace of Parody], helps getting you to level 1. But getting a well paid profession, I think also helps. I'm thinking of starting in an apprenticeship, next time. Possibly, Blacksmith, Bowyer?

I've stopped playing for a couple of reasons. One is that it's not really my style of gaming. If all I wanted to do was grind levels, I'd play WoW or something. Secondly is that there is little forgiveness in the system. Once you've chosen an action, your options are limited, including trying to escape a bad situation. I didn't have a lot of luck with general use of the game, and the Palace had me stuck in the tunnels for so long I actually gained two full levels! One time earlier, I was stuck for three days in the tunnels and died, which apparently isn't normal. So, I'm not playing any further.
Hi Gknightbc, what you wrote about ROK 2 reminded me of something admin detailed before. Regardless of if you want to play it again or not reading the following link may better explain how many players approach the game and what ROK 2 is about: Winners & Losers In Ruler Of Kings II.
Just an For your information for those who care - I've started a new job that is happily busier than my previous, and pays better, but my posting times will have to be fewer. This means that I will be posting typically early morning PST, or later afternoons. It shouldn't prevent any regular game activities, but I'll be a bit less prolific. :D.
