how do you use mages and clerics?
Mine constantly die even in the back ranks. They get very little exp since they have so few spells (atleast early on). If I level up first and then get them later, won't they die easier?

not sure what to do? I am left with a level 2 level 4 fighters and a level 3 thief.

Hrm, where did you find a thief?

Make sure you take the time to level up a Priest. Save up and buy one that already has a few levels if you can't keep one alive. Give him/ her a sling and a shield if you have to.

Full plate armour and dualwielding shields while defensive fighting is usually a good way to go with spellcasters

Re: how do you use mages and clerics?
Switching to defensive when you are not casting with them is another tip, at early levels I find they are just for those fights that are going south and you need firepower to even. Definitely dual wield shields though, that will help.

Also i've not had a priest in danger yet, I've even got them set to using two handers for extra punch on the back row. Though I might rethink that as I level up a bit more.
