    Let's Play Blades of Avernum!

    Time for another new scenario! And this time we're really acting as mercenaries, answering a request for assistance. https://youtu.be/qtKGw5UV_Xk

    Game/scenario/whatever designing alternatives for those who miss Blades?

    They aren't? Oh I guess not. My memory has made a fool of me.

    Game/scenario/whatever designing alternatives for those who miss Blades?

    The maps are not stored in text files.
  6. I wonder how much of a pain it's going to be for Jeff, working with 20-25 people who get to create something, and another 45-50 still who get to name something on top of that while he's still trying to finish making the game after all. Might be a good interview question to ask him a year from now or such.

    Kickstarter For Our New Game/Series - Queen's Wish: The Conqueror

    I really want in the beta but I can't afford to spend $266 of my currency to do it. I wish there was a $100-150 tier that just gets you into the beta without naming anything, that would get me to spend more, (wink wink). I might up my backing at the last minute if we don't make the hundred thousand goal by then. But I don't need any absolution since I've never pirated any of Jeff's games. I suppose if I hung the document on my wall it would make a nice conversation starter. (As my friends already know I can drone on endlessly about Jeff's games). That said I might actually miss the free sounds in Jeff's games, I dunno, it adds a certain charm I can't explain. I would more enjoy some more music. That or more human sprites. The last engine had some fairly dull human sprites that were reused one too many times, (the monsters looked pretty good though, even if many dragons were the wrong colour).

    Ok, I have jsut read that Jeff made sure Miklosh did not die in the 1.01 but I susupect a bug remains as I have not reached the point where I decide to punish Vanatok stead or not. Never mind and glad to know I only miss xp.

    Though I don't know the limitations. But if you can work without a UI, most if not all of the scenario data(maps, dialogue) for Jeffs recent games is stored externally in text files. By modifying these text files you can radically change the game.

    Game/scenario/whatever designing alternatives for those who miss Blades?

    If you're willing to do into the code (a pretty solid and well-organized javascript base) RPGMaker is pretty fully customizable. So you could get a pretty good approximation of an Exile style game for sure, if you put in the work.

    BoE Scenarios Archive?

    Nevermind I found the Links through the chat. Anyways, So any new scenarios anyones found really interesting? and exciting? Came back from being around 2 years ago and sadly came to find out www.truesite4blades.com no longer functions to connect at all. Any Ideas where to be able to find the entire scenario archive?
  13. Rpgmaker is what I've also considered for some time. And now I noticed it's discounted on Steam, so I bought it. On the first try it seems a lot like Blades of Exile, with dialog box choices. I like it so far.

    What Exile/Avernum you begin with ?

    E3, got the demo from a CD that came with a gaming magazine, was popular at my high school. Never actually played any Avernum games all the way through.
  15. Hi, I purchased Avernum EFTP HD yesterday on the iPad, and I'm running it on the recent iPad Pro 10.5" model. I don't have any sounds, though. I've turned off Bluetooth just in case it was routing through headphones or something, tried playing Spotify (which works), tried closing all other open apps and hard-resetting, and also tried re-installing the game but nothing fixes the sound issue. Any advice? I have it on the PC but I was really looking forward to trying it on the iPad and it's a shame that it doesn't work properly.

    Tomb of Dahris-Bok Help (E2)

    It's okay. I forgive you. I ended up reloading a game before I even started chapter 2. When I got to the tomb again, I sent the same mage in. However, this time I took the secret tunnel around the vampire. Right after she pulled the lever, the vampire opened the door to that room. Mage ran like heck and escaped. Later, after giving tribute to Dahris-Bok, she was making her way back down that tunnel to open the gates so she could leave. In the narrow corridor, with no lights, she ran smack into the vampire. Battle commences and it's not going well. Then, the vampire cast firestorm right on top of them both and blows itself up. My mage is standing there at exactly 0 hp screaming, "I'M ALIVE!!!" Good times.

    Time to be a hero, and stop the dragon's plan once and for all... and the dragon too, of course. https://youtu.be/LHtxo94S6_w

    Tomb of Dahris-Bok Help (E2)

    I missed this was the Exile version.

    Um. I'm preeeetty sure Exile 2 did not have autosave?
  20. I was pleased to see the nice newsletter today, and it looks like the newsletter gave a nice little bump to the kickstarter, too. Looks like it needs to average about $2k/day until the end to hit the sound design goal.

    Some NPCs die off from monsters, but I think this one dies depending upon whether Redbeard decides to punish the town and what you said as to how much punishment they should get. All you get is some experience for doing it. If you wait too long it isn't even that much.

    I have not said anything to Redbeard and I can't see Miklosh any longer. Before getting the quest I saw him chopping fruits, with a quest marker at his location !

    What Exile/Avernum you begin with ?

    Exile III: Ruined World dominated my middle school non-social life. I played the heck out of the demo before I begged my parents to buy the games. I even spent a summer art class drawing the entire demo map area with all the towns and dungeons from memory.

    Exile 2 with the early graphic's.
