Yes, maybe that will be something I have to tweak. With Targus, the WIS bonus makes a big difference. I normally insist on 3d6 in order for ability scores, so an INT or WIS of 16+ will be quite rare.
If you feel Targus is top heavy I'm all for you re-rolling his stats and I'll put the numbers you assign down. I'm good either way as long as I get to play.
No, I'm happy with how things are for now. I did crunch some numbers when I first wrote the supplement, so there's nothing unexpected from my side.

So if after adventuring I end up with 1000gp does that mean I can "buy, or pay for" an additional 10 levels of spells via training or do I pick spells (I.E. Raise Dead Clr5 and Teleport MU5) and pay 500gp per spell chosen?
Actually, having given it some more thought, we'll just stick with the Magic-User spell acquisition rules in Basic Fantasy core rulebook (page 139). No point reinventing the wheel. So basically you need money, time and a teacher, and it would be done on a spell-by-spell basis rather than on a certain number of levels of magic.

I added a back-story to Marcus' character sheet if anyone's interested.

I had long since parted company with my original copy of Apple Lane, so I was delighted to pick this up on ebay for a reasonable price. It's in amazing condition considering it's well over 30 years old ...

I'm just curious. Why is Marcus's armour modifier different for the 2 attacks?
The problem with doing something really stupid to impress people is that they may just be impressed by how stupid you really are.

From the description of the Shield spell ...

"It ... improves the caster's Armor Class by +3 vs. melee attacks and +6 vs. missile weapons."
