Thinking about coming back to the game, for about the 50th time. I was once (pre-Renaissance) a very knowledgeable player, but having played very sporadically since that time has rendered me to probably less-than-noob status (I think I cling to old ideas that don't even work anymore). I have tried multiple strategies to get back into the game, but am essentially a broke new player--I have a house, and some junk laying around, but no real knowledge of how to play this game today, or any high-quality items. Can anyone point me in a direction that will get me back into the game at some semblance of a decent pace? I have tried this several times, but I always hit a wall, where I can't manage to get over a wall, and can only kill things that give me a small pile of gold as a reward, but the next hurdle facing me is a piece of equipment that costs 10 million, or a scroll that costs twice that. I am open to any advice--what type of character, how to proceed initially, and especially what to do "mid-game".
