  1. In general terms (you can look up the dates that the plagues take place if you want to), you have a lot more time then you think that you do. If you do rush and take care of the plagues, you can take a pause before the endgame and do many of the things that you missed, but you can do a lot more side quests waiting for the plagues then you would expect.
  2. No, you do not need to kill Athron. If your rep is 13 or higher and you are nice to her you can get some good information from her and leave peacefully.
  3. From what I remember you should be around level 15
  4. Also, if you have been picking everything up, you can afford to fully equip all of the hands and still have plenty of money left over

    Queen's Wish - Romance

    Comeliness covered good looks, Charisma covers suave voice, and in most of the games money is no problem. Either Charisma or Comeliness or both could fairly easily become a stat like nature lore where it enables certain things, most of which are non-essential and then we could have multiple posts on how valuable it is or it isn't with completionists (like me) getting the necessary levels to have every option of persuading merchants, officials and members of the desired gender to do what we want while the min/maxers have just enough levels to do what is absolutely necessary and put the rest in hardiness or something else useful.
  6. You may need to reload from an earlier save

    Any Android games out there?

    The spiderweb software website does not show any games for Android. Many of the recent releases do work on the iPad.

    Queen's Wish - Romance

    I do not think that it would be necessary or wise to include that feature unless it advances a lot point (which tends to eliminate a lot of the spontaneity, much is already lost by the pick your dialog system). The romance in Avadon 2 met that goal and was kept within reasonable bounds, but was not all that interesting other than "hey, Jeff did something different, lets see how it works out, plus I want to get the medal". I am not sure that pursuing a romance with an NPC to earn a medal is a great thing. Adding a romance option to multiple characters would really turn this option from a side line to a main part of the game which I think is not keeping with the reason that most of us play Jeff's games. While I agree with Minion's statement, the system that he describes seems far removed from the type of RPG that Jeff normally writes.

    Testing a Discord server for SW peeps

    I believe that only the current mods can embed images
  10. I did use the training crystals, but I also spend a lot of time accumulating and carefully stacking and distributing scrolls, portions and crystals and then I make minimal use of any of them.

    Gee whiz, don't you wish ...

    The other action point change is that you need to have a certain number of action points left to do something, five to attack or cast a spell, three to use an item. Get encumbered, take a step or get stunned and all of a sudden you can't do anything useful in a round.

    That would just depress me. I think that i have a fair amount of it cleared, but I know not all of it is. The pylons help, but there is still a lot of out and back trips from Fort Dunno and the other friendly locations to clear an area.

    I am currently trying to do a play through of A4, I tried before and stopped. I am really tired of exploring the Eastern Gallery one square at a time.

    Deleting Saved Games

    The Save0 - Save 19 refers to the save files position on the save screen. The location of the saved files varies between each game and which OS (Win or Mac) you are using. The spiderweb folder that you are looking at should only have saves from one game. Some of the folders from Save0 - Save19 may be empty

    RPGs - Best World Tech?

    LOTR is too low magic for my gaming tastes (I love the trilogy and the hobbit, could not get into the rest of the books), I want to have wizards and priests, not just a few demigods. As an immature DM playing AD&D it was a challenge to balance the desire for rewards with the slow build-up. XP point values for monsters were really low and so most advancement came from XP for gold and for magic items and unless you enforced encumbrance and detect magic/identify mechanics (which were not very fun) there was more than enough loot in the published adventures to advance a party pretty quickly even without going to the Monty Hall extremes.
