A little PC game that I enjoy

This is one of the games I downloaded from GOG games. It is called ‘Eschalon, Book 2.’ As you can see from my hit points bar, I’m doing quite badly at the game. Any tips, my fellow Eschalon fans?

I’m not even sure that is how the games name is spelt. Ok I checked just now. I spelt it correctly.

If I abstain from playing this for a time, I get interested in it all again, but with a fresh perspective on how to play the game. I can’t even finish the game once!
