I'm looking for a sword & sorcery type game i used to play it had classes, stats, levels.

the thing the game had that was different from most was the combat.
When combat started the game went to a overview mode which had all the monsters and players as on the screen (as tiles) which you can move around ect.

Those two cover approx 65% of the games.
You can narrow the searchfield on Mobys......

What would be more helpfull is:
Gamefield? How was it set up?
Any specific spells you remember?
Some names ... level names or such ....

Isometric graphics
The characters would do a simple swinging action when they attack or got hit.
Basic gameplay is a town and under it is the dungeon.
hmm spell like fireball
I played it on dos

had 6 character slots
bunch of classes
small text sizes

This Mobygames list (on the right side of the page) lists all DOS games (at least, all of the games in the database) that are isometric RPGs: ... isometric/

Chances are it's one of the games on that list. Look through it and see if any of the names are familiar.

I make my shot: Nahlakh?

Fits in these points:

- swinging action when attacking
- town which under is a dungeon
- fireball spells
- Dos game
- bunch of classes
- special combat screen
- isometric, tile-based overview.

but it has 8 character slots :(

It sounds like "Darklands" to me. I loved that game...never finished it though.
