should work

my dwarf noble saves worked on 1.02 and carried over to 1.03...

apparently reinstalling the Visual C++ runtimes helps as well, but for me the game seems to crash at specific points, like where i am at the moment

I installed the runtimes but did not REinstall ... I just DLed what was on the support page and ran the executable. Tell me if 'rolling back' from 1.03 works for you

The most powerful spells in the game are spirit based. There are also a lot of spirit spells whereas there are very very few other elemental spells. The most powerful spell in the game is Mana Clash. The formula is (50+spellpower)% of mana lost. So (using that character) if the target has 300 mana I would do over 900 damage.

To be honest using that character makes the game way too easy. I can solo any battle as long as I have at least 10 2nd level health potions and it's not much of a challenge. Especially since mana clash will kill any magic user in one hit. It's a powerful spell regardless. If you had it on a healing mage it would do 500-700 damage easy.

Just loaded up Awakenings and the first thing I noticed was you have the ability to create runes. It's added to the skill tree. I also noticed it loads a little faster. Looking forward to playing through it later today.

For Awakenings, there's a "gift" called Soap-on-a-rope. LULZ!
