Shuwan: Sorry, when I read my articles written down here, I always find them containing lots of junk. In particular case the success of the Sea-Water-tactics Mana Leak - Counterattack - Mana Leak - Counterattack doesn't really depend on them being able to manipulate mana, but if they answer Mana Leak with an attack. If yes, they are dead.
This very strong tactics Sea Water has additional to his strong absorbe message, making him practically undefeatable, when played by an educated player like me. :-) So that should be correct now!

s/if they answer Mana Leak with an attack/if they answer Mana Leak repeatedly with an attack/

What about an editor some could correct mistakes after sending an article? There are lots of discussion-forum-software around that are able to do this.

michl7, there should be a small "edit post" button at the left of your comments, so you can edit them.

I am thinking of setting up a page for book of mages guides/walk-through, we have quite a few nice strategies here, and this thread is getting too long!

Great Sea mage is best in defense. Only experienced players like you know how to use it well. Yes Great Sea mages are powerful but it is not an easy clan for beginners. Maybe I'll increase the points required for Mana leak(first magic) from 10 to 20.
Also I think I'll Increase mana required to cast Burn(Chaos) from 20 to 50.

I can only make changes perhaps next week. Too bad the project is not anything like bom...

I keep losing even though I have 10 HP left. Is there a reason for that? (and no, I'm not poisoned.)

Shuwan: Many thanks. The button is indeed there. Sorry enough there is no button to delete own articles that only contain mistake corrections. i'll try to correct up upper things a little ...

Shuwan: Won't correct upper articles, as they would have to be rewritten anyways. Will try to get together some simple tactical guide for the 6 kinds of mages, but will have to replay the game anyways to do that.

Burning Hill:
Since yesterday I know again, that best tactics with burning hill is: "increase special - increase special - mana attack" (if you play that correct, you should never need a mana shield). stage 3 against chaos can hurt a bit that way, but you survive it (and very important: your special survives it :-) and next hit kills him, especially if you managed to burn him a little on stage 2, what works most of the time. try to get mana attack in counter attack (especially against Ice Water, so that they can't freeze attack). And never forget: A fully trained Burning Hill, can't whether be killed by the stage 3 of chaos nor by even 2 freeze defends of Ice Water and much less by a "increase special - silence" of dark wood. You don't have to win any fight with 0 damage. What I say here goes only for a good to fully trained mage. Before you play Burning Hill like you would play anybody else (attack!!!!!!). :-)

very nice game, i found a few days ago:

sorry enough you can win it, without even getting that there is a puzzle. but the puzzle is nice, it's worth trying to solve it, as becoming rich is not a real prob in this game (especially on easy-level, but hard isn't hard also, you'll just have to do the right things at the moneylender in the beginning, and there are not too much possibilities). have fun!

The game is great. I'm playing it 9th time and i think i'll do it again. There is only two thing missing:

Acknowledgement-I feel like i'm not really a part of this world. Like my deeds means nothing. the only ones aware of my position are mages from the arena. The rest are...not. I mean- i'm in top ten and everyone takes me as another random mage. Or when you are taking part in great mage election, when i'm number 1 in BoM. I already defeated most of the mages there. That doesn't mean they have to give up, but a little acknowledgement of this fact would be really nice :)

These games are amazing =D!!! but you know when you defeat the powerful hermit and then he says im going to inform this to the other 5 Book Of Mages authors are you going to add the other fights with the other 5 mages and if you edit the BoM2 could you add more mages looking for you when you defeat the hermit to praise you or challenge you to be the invisible mage
