I didn't read all posts, so sorry, if this is mentioned already.
I didn't find a forum for the patch-creator, but is there one? I have some things, I would mention
It seems, that some mechanics aren't exactly as described in the mechanics screen.
For example: Liches (which are "immune" to mind and body) And Vampires (which are "immune" to mind) can get insane (mind-effect?), , and poisoned (body-effect?) at least. At least in M&M 8. I saw this solemly as effect from undead dragons.
The "blind" and "Dark Grasp" spells in M&M 8 don't 100% work. (At least casters do cast spells and can damage the party.)
It would be great if this issues would be fixed...
Aside from that, the patches seem to be avesome (didn't try them, yet.)
AND there is a merge-mod, which I can't wait to try. (Hm. first, I play M&M 8 through, I think) which also seems to work with the fan-patch. (at least, that was, what I understood, as I was reading about it.)
