I have completed before a no reload challenge playing as a technologist with a party, which is not difficult once you can afford to buy restore life from herbalists and give one to each party party member. Playing a solo technologist with no reloads is a different matter. I was doing great overall (I was around level 30 I think), and was overconfident, so instead of running away from an encounter with a dangerous looking man/dark individual, I stopped to fight. He has an insane amount of attacks per turn, he stunned my character and that was it. Now I am attempting again a solo gunslinger no reload challenge. The main dangers are: - A point in melee at character creation is needed to get past the guy at the crash site, even if you focus on firearms. You can't kill him with otherwise at that level (unless you are extremely lucky) - Must be lucky to get to Tarant. An encounter with a wererat is a guaranteed game over - Dangerous encounters during travel. These can be countered with potions of speed from the wise women. Drink one and run away. - Being stunned by an attack. Until you have plenty of HP and damage reduction it is pretty much game over. Therefore you must kill monsters as fast as possible, to minimize the amount of hits they attempt on you.
