Hello there! I'm wondering if there is an 'end' in the game without mods. I've been playing only with mods and after I kill Ordak (or smth) another lair at the graveyard opens (again I don't know if this happens in the regular game also).
My second thought is about items. I'm level 55 and haven't get better weapon or armor since level 30. Monsters don't drop any amazing stuff but the shop sells waps over 1000dmg/s (though they aren't too chic). So am I supposed to get anything cool after killing Ordak or is the game just going on and on without any real idea?
Also my pet actually died. I fed him with big troll fish and as he died he truly gave up the ghost and started his eternal sleep. IRRITATING!!!
Re: The End
Ordrak is the end of the game technically, but after you get tired of the endless dungeon (the place in the graveyard) you can retire your character. Your new character will have one item powered up and have its requirements lowered, and will start with an extra skill point for every generation retired beforehand. You want to leave all your other equipment in the shared stash, since it will become locked away once your character is required.
If that doesn't do it for you, well there are mods that will create higher tiers of items, more monsters, quests, and even let your character and fate levels be raised beyond level 100.
Also, pets can't die - ever. I think you had a bug/glitch happen. I've heard of it before, but I don't remember what the fix is. Try a quick search on the official forums or send an e-mail to customer service.

Maybe your pet saw a butterfly and chased it. Now it's lost...
