Thanks for the advice, I shal take it all unto consideration (I really doubt thats a proper way to use unto, ahwell).
My plans of doing this while sticking to my charatistic cheap bastardly ways are beginning to unravel. Perhaps I can't be a total cheap bastard, but I can be a moderately cheap bastard.
And I love the idea of Blind Beard the pirate. That strikes me as a good room clearing tool.
"Arright, we'se a shove ye into a room. Ye hears the door close, ye starts swingin' an' don't stop till I says!"
It all kind of went downhill from there.
