I beg to differ about lower levels being boring.
I'm currently playing a low-level campaign and only just reached level 3 last night when my halfling cleric killed a werewolf with an onion.
Something you cannot do in a videogame, unless its made by LucasArts
And you can kill a werewolf with an onion on level 20 too. That´s not level-related.
Not the case of this game, it seems they´re giving you plenty of things to that do not rely on your level ( animal handling, speak with the dead, sneak mechanics, Tadpole force powers, etc)
