Let me preface by saying that I was almost level 2 and had looted some potions from a dungeon. I had also found a spellbook of healing word level 1 Also, this is my first character aside from a short adventure in the demo before I got the game on steam; had I known what I know now I would certainly have turned tail and ran. Anyway, I had been walking around a dungeon trying to fight and sleeping to heal, but soon I got overwhelmed and left the dungeon. I slept outside, bad idea, and was ambushed by an ogre. I knew that there was a town to the south, but the Ogre blocked my path. I could have used a tree to block him, but I didn't think about that so I just went for it. I had asked for armor from the guy at the beginning which may have been the difference maker, but I went through all my health potions plus my mana potions so I could cast healing word. I finally killed the ogre with 1/4 of my health left and no other healing options left. My reward? 1 small health potion. Who says you can't kill an ogre with a rusty old dagger? Not me, but you sure better bring a LOT of potions with ya!
