Ancients 1: Death Watch

Ancients 1: The Deathwatch is the first game of 2 created by a company named Farr-Ware. Like the Wizardry games before it, the majority of Ancients is spent exploring, mapping, and strengthening the power of your characters.
Before you begin your journey, you'll have to select your characters. You don't have to enter the character creation screen at all, and you can just use the default party given to you (which includes a rogue, a warrior, a mage and a priest). But, it's a tad more enjoyable if you create and customize your own.
When creating your characters, you'll have to select the race, class, and roll the starting stats. As far as I can see, your starting race has no noticeable effect in the game, except for having an altered line of text in the status screen. For your 4 characters, you might just want to select all available classes in order to have a well-balanced party. This works 100% of the time, but it isn't the best. Nearing the end of the game, warriors and rogues tend to miss almost all the time, and don't do damage anywhere close to a priest or a mage. If you want, you can have 3 Priests and 1 Mage, with 2 Priests acting as front-line warriors until you have access to the later magic spells in the game.
