Review:
Very interesting, good story but it ends a bit abruptly.

Let's see, Xander is Level 1 or 2 so that would be a .000001 chance of a set,.0001 for a magic item etc.

Review:
This is a good start. I like the ideas of Xander gaining the skills from the diablo game, but I'm not sure why you are following along on the parallel track with the diablo world; that is if you aren't going to send Xander there as the hero? Its good, but you have a few words missing or misspellings, but I understand what its like to not have a beta. I like it and hope you keep updating. Cheers!

Review of story "It all began with an Archangel..." from MistofRainbows
Review:
I think I might have left off without the exp comments. But otherwise an interesting reasoning that his sword conjures the items. :)
Comments from author:
I made it to fit 'Finders Keepers" challenge. But what I really want to do is to write a story on the challenge with sci - fi setting, however, i am yet to find a game that would fit the requirements

Review of story "It all began with an Archangel..." from CrystalBlaze
Review:
It can vary.

Keep in mind that once Buffy starts looking, Find Potion and (eventually) Find Item become available, and the sword may cause caches of whatever to manifest as the cache stones, jars, chests, logs, and urns (or dead guards) found in Sanctuary.

Also, one soul may have escaped the Burning Hells to take up residence in that spellcaster. I refer to Wirt (of Diablo infamy and he whose corpse finally gave us access to the Cow Level).

Specific things to find...

If you mean for Cordy to be an Bowazon, I recommend Shi on a short bow and working up to Machine on a Maiden bow for weaponry. Emphasis on speed and tanking against the physical, she's bright enough to keep a distance when the magic flies.

Willow.. Necromancer. As the Powers had her power growing from the Hellmouth but to her own ends, that path seems most ideal, and had this happened after her casting the soul spell back onto Angelus, I'd be saying it was sealed by that act.

Jenny Calendar, on the other hand, will almost certainly be a Sorceress, and possibly gain insight from the Sightless Eye.

Giles is also a Necromancer, however reluctantly. Eyghon...

I really don't see Ethan Rayne coming back to the Dale, not after seeing a pissed off Tyreal. That is a sight too pure for mortal eyes, no shit.

If you really want a change up in your work, you might consider "officer" Patrice resigning from the Order of Teraka and becoming.. an assassin! (I confess, that is my fave Diablo II class, bar none.)

Review of story "It all began with an Archangel..." from thsunami
Review:
The thing about the buffy verse that while he may over powered is that a entire planets worth of different kinds of demons and armies are all waiting on a hairs breath to cause a war on the epic of terminator movies on humanity. Very similar to hellgate london in that sense as the good guys fighting are a handfull and the demons are every where including gonvernments and high power corporations. So he is against the world in almost a literal way in that buffy verse

Hope Cordelia gets involved she would make a heck of an Assassin down the road.

Review of story "It all began with an Archangel..." from Dragonwolftiger
Review:
Great story. Now that I've stroked your muses ego (if you have a muse, mine seems to be on vacation with occasional visits). Buffy the Barbarian it kinda goes together. I always wondered if ?Joss Whedon? liked dumb blondes or something, because in canon Buffy is lucky to be able to tie her shoelaces. Oh and don't ask about my opinion of seasons 6 and 7. Buffy might be A Slayer, not THE Slayer but hand to hand combat and extra strength and speed do not a general make. Buffy bash, Buffy walk into ambush, Buffy drink beer and Beer bad seems to be her mentality through the whole show. Now mind you I like Buffy but she should show the brains that she inherited from her parents.

Review of story "It all began with an Archangel..." from Hurlekain
Review:
I agree with the first three choices for classes. I would make Buffy a barbarian, Cordy an Amazon and Faith the assassin. If you really don't think that Cordy works as an Amazon then try the complete opposite and make her a Necromancer. Just a suggestion.

Review of story "It all began with an Archangel..." from Prometeus
Review:
Found it. Here you go,
http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-9948-2/thule+Once+Around+the+Realms+or+a+Carpenter+s+Holiday.htm

I dis-recommend the way Thule did it, it's too ... ad hoc and ritualistic. The relevant passages are,

> "The gods made the world, Wizard Giles," Alenon said. "It's not for
us to question their ways."

> "There's monsters in there sir. Oh, it's fine for a great hero like you, but we'd never dare go to such a terrible place."

Basically "turn your brain off and stop questioning!" that's just not on. I suppose this is lampshading in the tvtropes sense, but I find that unsatisfactory. I prefer ... something more, something that passes for an actual explanation, even if you have to squint real hard.

Notwithstanding this, that fic is still a fun read and it definitely has its moments.

--

"We should move," Alenon said. "Where there are ten orcs, there are
more."

"Let them come," Dawn said. She had her dagger out and was striding
around, brandishing it. She went stomping off down the trail.

"What's gotten into her?" Xander said.

"Ah, she told me," Alenon said. "A friend of hers, named Boromir,
was slain by orcs. She wishes to avenge his death."

Review of story "It all began with an Archangel..." from rothos
Review:
Buffy is an Amazon, there is a team variant for her wielding two handed weapons. Amy and Willow are sorceresses, Cordy is an Assassin with no traps skills. Oz and Veruca are druids, Angel and Spike are barbarians and Drusilla is a sorceress.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Prometeus
Review:
There actually was a fic on TTH where Dawn gets stuck in the forgotten realms and the reality there remakes her into a sorceress. At the beginning she rants and raves about the stupidity of finding rubies on spiders out in the middle of nowhere. And about the stupidity of peasants tilling land when they could just harvest a few rubies off of spiders.

It's not the game mechanics per se that sucked, it's the fact the economy was blatantly impossible. Magic is magic, it doesn't have to make sense. Fuck, it never does! But greed is eternal, not something reserved for a few munchkin PCs.

So it's okay for vamps to drop cash and BTVS people to level up by killing them. The consequence of that is that Initiative soldiers find it much more profitable to accidentally dust their targets every single time. Vamps might become an endangered species.

Was or is? Do you mind dropping me a link if you can find it. I'd like to see how it is done.
