    do you have any followers?, any point's indodge/ melee?, or even the harm spell? (as long as you're not using chris beddoes mod). Get sogg if you can and use him as buffer between you and the bad guys to soften them up for you to finish.

    I have little melee and no dodge (i'm only level 6) and Sogg doesn't jopin me I need more Charisma but I want to try and get better at the actual skills before the stats go up. Trouble is that I can't seem to get levels as I get killed so often so I'm trying to get stuff that is useful for me (lockpick and haggle are my main things at the moment). I made a balanced sword and just could not score a hit and so gave it to Virgil and now he seems to kill all before I get there (or die).

    Well, you could always try to change the difficulty in the options menu... or switch combat mode. I take it that you're playing real time right now, you should try turn based, it tends to make things easier. Simply press the Space button to alternate between combat modes. :)

    why don't you have any dodge? I always increase that at the same rate as melee.

    You could try to outrun your enemies. Just pick a direction and run like crazy. Eventually, you will get enough distance between yourself and your enemy to click the world map and continue your journey. Another idea might be to stop your journey from time to time and save. Then if you die, just reload and try again. If you get attacked on the same spot, try to change your path a little, and you should get in safe after a few tries.

    My fighters are usually too fast to even need dodge. Potions of Haste rule.
