And so I begin to do my Let's Play of Avernum 6, the last game in the series I have to do (Aside from Blades).  I hope those who watch enjoy, and if you want to see the rest of the games, you can find them here, here, here, here, and here.

Food is a major theme of A6, as is a town you can't enter without the relevant orders. In time the orders will come, when you are trying to enter a given town. (Fort Emerald has guards at its gates but there is no real town behind the town walls.)
Magic spells are learned fairly slowly too.

And here we see just what the big problem facing Avernum is... and it's not a problem that can be solved by stabbing it in the face...

A shorter episode today, as we check out random things outside, and make a new friend.

That escaped lizard the merchant wants you to retrieve is not wandering around outdoors, it is hiding in a cave somewhere. You probably won't find it for a while.

Oh true.  It could be ages to find it.  Ages!  I may not find it until the end of the game!

I agree with you on the mini-map, it was much better in Avernum 4 & 5.

We head just west of the Castle to explore what we can find.  Not much to say beyond that.

Meryhew offers quests in groups of three, accept all three quests at once. When party has completed two quests she goes onto the next batch.
Koepp will be part of a quest, remember his location.

I'll keep that info in mind, thanks!

With the area just west of the Castle explored, we move to take a peek at the area just EAST of the castle!  Many things are found.

A lot of discussion as we reach Patrick's Tower, so I had to split this episode into two parts.  So much fun!

Glad to hear you're enjoying!

We peer through a couple old mines we find, and then clear out some job board jobs because we can.

We return once again to the city of Gnass, home of the Sliths of Avernum.

I also apologize for all the sniffing and such in the last episode, this episode, and some of the coming episodes.  I was recovering from a cold or something and had a lot of congestion that would NOT go away.

If you take all three quests at once, when you complete two and then go on to the next quest triplet, I suspect that you can go back and complete the third still-unfinished quest. But I don't know that for sure.

It's a pity that one of the core cities of Avernum never got rebuilt after the Time of Shades.  The place wasn't that bad.

A good question.  Maybe enough people died in the Time of Shades that, combined with the Blight, there just weren't enough people to repopulate it.

A bit of a long episode, I know, as we head down to look around Fort Remote.

I understand that Gladwell wants to break the seals that contain the undead of the Undead Spiral. He is totally out for himself and has no loyalty to Avernum at all.

He does have a logical basis for what he's doing.  I'm not saying he's not evil for doing it, but in some twisted way he is loyal to Avernum.

Yeah, considering what Gladwell wants I think I'm probably going to end up saying "no"...

We head out to explore the northwest corner of the Great Cave.  Not really much else to say about that...
