My party and their respective weapons:
- Kagain - Crossbow/bolts
- Imoen - Short Bow/arrows
- Finch - Sling / bullets
- Viconia - Sling / bullets
- Xzar - Darts
- Me (True-class Druid) - Sling /bullets
Unfortunately, it seems like there is a balance issue. Imoen never has to worry, since arrows are plentiful with kobolds. But I very quickly cleaned out all stores of their bullets with three characters using slings, and it's still early in the game. I cringe to think about three characters without ranged weapons as things get harder.
Yes, I could swap out the clerics with other NPC's, but I like playing the same party from beginning to end.
How to improve - Perhaps refill after certain amount of time? Every day merchants create x number of bullets, arrows, bolts, etc.? Or merchants jack up the prices after 2nd or 3rd refill? Or exclude ammunition? Or bump up 10 max to 50 for ammunition? Just thinking out loud.
