Let's Play Avadon!

94 posts in this topic

I have completed my Let's Play of the Avernum saga, so it is now time to move on to Spiderweb Software's next series... Avadon! And of course, we start with the Black Fortress. I admit, I know very little of the Avadon series, as I haven't played very much of it. So if anyone has any tips or suggestions, feel free to provide me with them!

 

That said, we begin and start getting used to the change in mechanics.

Looking forward to this. I never liked Avadon or the skill trees but was intrigued by the story. Now I don't have to force myself to play it. :)

Well, it seems not everyone is pleased with the Fortress of Avadon. Who ever would have guessed...

Huge loredumping in this episode as we take a peek around the fortress, and go to speak with the two companions we have gained.

Some exploration of the upper half of Avadon, as we find other people to speak to, and other future companions.

I will be following this.

I don't really like the skill tree either, but it didn't stop me from enjoying the game. The thing I really like about Avadon are all of these moral conundrums you have to solve (like in Geneforge). Avadon also has a lot of political comentary that is actually somewhat relevant depending on how you interpret certain elements of the story, which I think is a nice touch.

With so much of the fortress explored, we head down the various stairways to explore what's beneath it.

Finally we leave Avadon and head into the lands of the Kva, exploring the town of Goldcrag and its environs.

With the lands explored, we start going into the buildings themselves to see what we can find and what needs doing.

Another two-parter as we finally reach the lair of Zhethron and clear out a little... pest problem of his before speaking with him.

We finish up the last bit of Zethron's lair and move on into the lands owned by the wretches, exploring around before we go into their hole.

This is normally the part of the game where I give up so I am interested to start watching more closely from here on out. Good luck.

We continue onwards, to deal with Onghror. Finally, a capture instead of a kill!

Keeping up with this series so far. It's actually really interesting.

 

How are you planning on handling party members? Now that you have tested them all out will you be deciding on a permanent party or will you just mix and match as the fancy takes you from now on?

Mix and Match, for the most part. However I'm going to try to make sure one is related to the area (Sevilin for the Kva, for example) and one has training in lockpicking (because of course). Beyond that? Well we'll see.

 

Deeper into the forest we hunt the Shadow Beast, past living hunters and mazed forests.

At last we have tracked the Shadow Beast to its lair. Now it's time to deal with this problem once and for all.

Down we go, beneath the fortress of Avadon, into the abandoned cells, still full of secrets.
