It is not something you can handle by lesser methods? I defragment my drive on a weekly basis. I also use Easy Cleaner to check for invalid registry entries and unnecessary files.
Once a day, I shut down all programs and Shut Down my computer.

with the way modern operating systems and hard drive firmware store data, defragmenting is mostly counterproductive tbh

it also can't do anything to fix physical problems with the drive. if the SMART attributes say the drive is in trouble then it's time to get a new one

yea if hdd starts showing errors then better replace it since it can last 1 day or weeks before it breaks completely.

Yeah SMART said the drive was bad before the diskcheck I tried to run even started.  Fortunately it held out long enough that I could get a new HD and, using a program recommended to a friend, copied everything onto the new one absolutely perfectly.  It's exactly the same... except bigger, once I figure out how to access the extra TB.

That said... even though it's late today, have today's episode, where we head on into the Lair of the Slimes.

Glad to see your computer is working again.

In Avernum 1, frequently an impenetrable door had a secret door nearby. You did not get Unlock Doors level 3 for some time.  In Avernum 3 this may not hold true, Slime Pits level 1 door is an example of this not being true. In A3 it would be more of a last resort.

And here we have the remainder of the Slime Lair, with the creator of the creatures.  In addition, with some time left, we go have a talk with an old familiar face...

When standing next to Erika, click the Get button.
When out back, make frequent use of the Far Sight spell.

With Erika done, we head back down to Avernum proper, to check out the Tower of Magi and get new spells.  Yay!

We investigate the mysterious deaths that happened in Upper Avernum, and then head back to the surface to explore a bit further east because why not.

With the slimes dealt with, we move onwards to the north, to the Isle of Bigail!  This is going to be "fun"...

A couple of side quests featuring undead who turn hostile after dialog with you (and tear your lead PC to pieces). One encounter, I had the lead PC protected by an Invulnerability Elixir before combat. In the other encounter I simply used War Blessing beforehand.

The City of Shayder, home of the Anama and giant cockroaches.  Let's see what's going on inside, why don't we?

Most fights are okay when the front two PCs wear chain mail. A few special fights seem to require the wearing of plate mail so the PCs can survive the mega-damage they receive.

With the rest of Shayder explored, we take a look at the Anama's temple to see JUST what they're all about.  As well as check out the sewers, and the lands to the north.

Bigail has a lot of small towns that can be quickly and easily explored, and we look through a number of them here.  As well as an... interesting lighthouse...

You missed a few routine treasures in the Filth Factory, but nothing you really needed.
When you return to the Fort you will get a surprise quest...

Radiant Shield is just the thing if you are surprised by foes with magic, missile weapons or nasty melee damage.

It appears I haven't.  I admit, I have no idea where these ambushes you mentioned could be.  Did I already pass where they were or something?

And I admit, I keep forgetting about Radiant Shield.

Either way, for now?  Onwards to finding the Ritual of Sanctification!  I'm sure it's around here somewhere...

its been years since I played A3 thru but it was in empire's lands (some northern area) and simple townies and killing those angered town nearby which was supposed to give/teach something useful, of course I wandered around area so could be that you have avoided it by not wandering that much while I went somewhere I wasn't supposed or wrong way.

walkthrough ain't helping since ambushes mentioned in wt are mostly by non-human.

Lennus and Squiggus are violently, murderously, racist. They are in the southeast of Valorim.

If the areas are in the northern lands, that would explain why I haven't encountered them yet, as I haven't gotten that far north yet.

That said, a short episode today as we investigate a couple besieged towns.
