Going back to Cotra, you really needed a Recall Crystal, would cut the journey in half...

Demonslayer, you are looking for a forge where the sword can be re-forged.

Unlock Doors, level 3, you don't just find it someplace. You have to run around a bit, clear out a certain dungeon then commute between three towns.

Thank you for the information, I'll make use of that in my next recording session!

For now though, time to expel some Empire soldiers from Avernum.

Behold Athron, third of the five great Dragons of Avernum.  At least he's more friendly than Pyrog.

All dragons react with violence to theft, except Sulfras, who does nothing. (You get hit with a Dread Curse instead.)

Shattered Fort, here is where Repel Spirit level 3 really comes in handy. Imps die after one hit from this.

Confounding befuddlement?  Slow out the wazzoo?  Annoying summoning?  Lava?  Yep... this place is a bit annoying.

Restoration Brew is the way to deal with dumbfounding. Alternately, you could use a Recall Crystal then seek healing at Fort Duvno.

A two-parter here, as we wander around a bit before encountering Khoth the Wise.

In Bargha you can sell stuff to Prynne the Healer.
(You missed an interesting hidden area in the Lair of Khoth.)

Bind Foe can be useful for immobilizing particularly annoying foes, like spellcasters, while you wipe out their fellow monsters.
(In A2 you really must start the game with this spell.)

You should have saved immediately after winning the fight in the main room, the Barracks, especially when it left you low on spell energy.
Can Wizards be immobilized with Bind Foe? No, not on a regular basis, they resist too much.

My first PC uses Alien Blade and Demonslayer, he has the Crystal Charm to defend against Basilisks.

When to save your game:

This has the potential to wipe out the whole party unless you know what to do.

"This has the potential to wipe out the whole party unless you know what to do."
Enlightenment is a state like Sanctuary or Hovering Feet, it only occurs a few times in the game. When the scroll icon disappears the state has worn off!

Blosk is one of the six cities, but its statue is outside the city walls.

Of course, outside the walls!  I'm an idiot.  Though considering the information most of those statues gave me, I doubt it's much useful info.

Either way, this episode we explore a crypt and unlock some doors we never would have gotten through.

Normally if you can't get through a door, you can't get through a nearby wall. Occasionally there are exceptions. This does not make sense but Unlock Doors level 3 will take a while to be found. Hence you need the secret doors...

With a demon slain, it's time to move on to finding an exit... right after we clear out a nest of Drakes, that is.

An early-post two-parter as we try to find the mythical escape from Avernum!  I never realized how poetic the ending to that was...

In the second hidden room of Khoth's Lair you find a level 3 spell, not just treasure.

Here is the list of where the level 3 spells are found:

Time now to remove Emperor Hawthorne from the issue... and have our Revenge upon the Empire.

And with that, Avernum is at long last complete!  I hope you all enjoyed, and soon I'll be starting up Avernum 2!  Keep an eye out!

(Avernum 2 is different indeed, you will find far fewer level 3 spells in the demo part of the game. You will probably want Bind Foe at level 2 as soon as you can get it. Default starting party leaves a lot to be desired, you might do well to use Custom PCs.)
