    Considering how long those weapons lasted although my main damage dealers used them all the time I doubt you'll have the results fast, so choose your place for testing wisely to avoid spending more time than necessary.
    Try to count the charges if possible, the toothed club+2 and El's drinker should last much longer than the beast club +2.
    You can start the game with the -k911 command and use "t" to level up immediately (more hits per round but not more damage per hit) and speed things up.

    This thread is making me want to actually get Ravager :)

    I never played the game, but regarding the charges running out, a friend of mine had this happen to him with El's Drinker, but not with other weapons.

    Regarding the Psionics XP cap, Scorpia's CGW review mentioned her Fighter/Psionicist couldn't go above 13/14, so there's definitely something odd with them. Maybe multiclassing with a class that advances faster (like a thief) is good, since the other class can still get to 15.

    Alright. I have reached the end game with my 2 man party. Half-elf Fighter/Preserver/Thief and a Half-Giant Gladiator. The Toothed Club and El's Drinker wielded by my Half-Giant. I have yet to fight the end battle. Neither item dissappeared or was exhausted of charges. I used them exclusively once rec'd, Hasting constantly and exploiting kmonster's respawning ghosts for tons of melee combat. But during the game, I did lose some other weapons from my inventory. They just disappeared. I did go back a few times to a previous save and they would be there again. Some were non-magical, others were plain +1 weapons. Like I said before, I think the game itself is just buggy.

    It is installed from the AD&D Masterpiece Collection. Though I can't see where the version is listed. The cd is with my nephew in NY. Looking in the DSUN folder, there is no readme or other type of file that shows it. Where else can I find the version?

    During the game press tab, select "set preferences", then click at the question mark ("about") and you should see which version is installed.

    Ok, that was simple enough. It would be version 1.0. Now that I think about it, on this PC(I have a couple of machines running) I downloaded the game, so it was not actually installed from the Masterpiece Collection.

    Maybe the weapon charges were implemented wrongly in version 1.0 and when a weapon runs out of charges there another one disappears and maybe it was fixed in version 1.1.
