  1. It has been a long time, but I think that these quests stay open the duration of the game
  2. Just for giggles, I looked up the definition of twitch based games on Wikipedia. I realize that I only looked at one source, but I am not trying to advocate for this particular definition, only to provide a definition. "Twitch gameplay is a type of video gameplay scenario that tests a player's response time. Action games such as shooters, sports, multiplayer online battle arena, and fighting games often contain elements of twitch gameplay. For example, first-person shooters such as Counter-Strike as well as Call of Duty shooters require quick reaction times for the players to shoo
  3. I was worried for a minute that I was going to have to learn the difference between Quarte and Sixte. It's been a while since I played A:EFTP, A:CS or A:RW, but couldn't the battle disciplines (assuming that I have the terms correctly) be seen as a step towards what you are saying in the second paragraph that I quoted? They allow a player to choose additional skills/effects beyond the standard sword attack. You can choose which ones better fit your tactical situation based on if you want more damage, knock back, area of effect, or hasting and how long of a cool down you are willing to toler
  4. 1. I, in general, do not play twitch games (Skyrim being the closest to a twitch game that I play). I am at the point in lift when I no longer have the reflexes of a 20 year old, and a game in which I have to have those reflexes is not fun to me. Player skill can be expressed in different ways, such as strategy, tactics, training, equipping, etc. I completely stay away from the on-line first person shooter type games, because battling against a bunch of players whose skill with an X-Box or PS IV controller exceeds mine, despite my skill with a rifle exceeding theirs has no appeal to me. I
  5. The anti-trust case against Microsoft is about Windows and Office dominating the market, which they have for 30 or so years now.
  6. Welcome to the forums, please leave your sanity at the door. The stance that my first spiderweb game was my favorite spiderweb game is not unusual. I hope that you enjoy the rest of the library as much, or almost as much.
  7. It appears to have been a software update, because the look and feel has changed fairly dramatically. For example, when I click on a topic with unread posts, it is taking me to the original post in the topic instead of down to the unread posts.
  8. Level 30 is max if I remember correctly. I am not sure if there is an xp cap.
  9. To get Level 3 in any spell in A:CS you need to obtain two levels via training and one level via the book. The only requirements to read the book as AL 10 which you far exceed and the need to have Magi Clearance to get to it which you appear to have. Are you sure that you have purchased two levels of Dispel Barrier from one of the trainers (Aimee is the cheapest though the trainer in Fort Emerald is a good choice also)?
  10. No problem. There is a set of maps on line http://spiderwebforums.ipbhost.com/index.php?/topic/22315-avernum-2-crystal-souls-maps/ but there are a lot of spoilers in the maps and so you may not want to use them. If you get stuck with a location usually some of us on the forums can help you, but it might take a couple of days depending on how often a person who knows the answer is on.
  11. You need to find the empire docks in order to get a boat to row through the Northern Islands. If you are at the moldy caves, you need to move a little bit South into the main part of the river and exit the boat onto the West shore. If you continue to walk West, you will find a wide passage that opens up into a larger cave. Walk North in that cave and there will be a wide passage that travels East. Walk that passage until you turn North. The screen should say that you have entered the Northern Islands. At the end of the passage to the North you will run into the empire docks. Seize a boa
  12. I remember having pads of graph paper in order to create maps to find my way around Wizardry and Ultima. I like how Automap allows me to concentrate on the game, not creating a map.
  13. Slartibus did a very extensive and enjoyable mod of A:EFTP. He will probably see your post in the next day or two.
  14. I completed the game multiple times on normal with a sword and shield fighter, a pole arm fighter, a mage and a priest. It was not a problem. For A:CS there is some goodness in dual wielding and adrenaline rush if I remember correctly, but that wasn't the route that I took.
  15. So, the Avernum story was originally told in Exile 1-3. That was remade as Avernum 1-3 and then added to with Avernum 4-6. The first three stories have since been remade as A:EFTP, A:CS, and A:RW. Steam is showing the three newest remakes (A:EFTP, A:CS, and A:RW) on sale for $18.86 or for $21.49 you can get A:EFTP, A:CS, A:RW, A4, A5, A6, Avadon 1-3, Nethergate:Ressurection and Geneforge 1-5. I would recommend the bigger package.
