    Gee whiz, don't you wish ...

    ... that Avernums IV, V, and VI had been an Exile series? I mean, the Avernum series is great, and I get that the continuous indoor/outdoor world appeals to some audiences, but there's something about Exile that just isn't recaptured in Avernum. The transparency, the simplicity, something. I really wish I could experience first-hand (i.e. not just from reading on forums) what happens to this world post-III, but I just can't get into Avernum no matter how hard I try. Collaborative Blades project, anyone? Gah, but who has time for that. Oh well.
  2. Right now, I’m seeing how far I can get in E2 with 3 archers and 3 fighters (no priests/mages). What’s the strangest party you’ve fabbed, and how far did you get?

    Hardest/strangest party creation?

    Challenge accepted.

    Spellcasting weapons and armour?

    Yeah. There’s really no need to keep around anything with charges in the Exile series. Unless you’re doing an unconventional runthrough like no spellcasters or a singleton, I guess.
  5. Also, I’ve read several interviews with JV and seen his interactions with his customers ... he’s certainly a to-the-point, matter-of-fact kind of guy, but nothing I’ve ever seen suggests that he maltreats or dislikes his fan base. On the contrary, he makes a point to be very responsive and willing to share advice. Maybe you’re mistaking his sense of humor?
  6. ... after spending nearly my whole life with just the Exile series. Wow.
  7. The most updated version that’s now available as freeware.
  8. Haven’t played Avernum, but in Exile: EftP there are 2 vahnatai dungeons (which reappeared in Exile 2) and a reference to them in the hint books. Since I’m assuming E2 took more than a year to complete, I think Jeff was well aware of the sequels while designing E1.

    Exile = my childhood

    I absolutely loved this game. I still love this game. It is better than any RPG I have seen since, including WoW. One question: when the game ends, does it really end? Or can you sort of keep playing the game and looting?

    Exile = my childhood

    Exile II was my favorite. Exile I had lots of depth, but the engine was more primitive (no “dungeon has been abandoned,” friendly monsters don’t fight on your side, etc.). Exile III had the best engine, and it was big, but it almost felt like they’d sacrificed depth for size. I mean, was there really that much difference between the towns? Maybe I just haven’t played it enough ... At any rate, Exile II seemed like the perfect balance.

    Heh, thanks for replying. My curiosity has been satisfied.

    Sorry for replying to an old topic, but I’m curious as to why Lilith considers this cheating. You aren’t circumventing game features; you’re just guiding outcomes based on intrinsic probabilities. In this vein, I don’t see how it’s any different from reloading when you die.
  13. Has anyone ever created a scenario that was 100% vahnatai? Not only recreating the Olgai tribe’s lands but the other tribes’ as well?

    BoE or BoA scenario: vahnatai lands

    So you’re saying there are possibly some Vahnatai or Nephilim out there somewhere, creating BoE scenarios? Are you referring to otherkin?

    “Most creators?” 😐

    What is this chronic disease?

    A radium bar. Thanks!
  18. Hey all. Sorry for all the posts; just discovered the forums. I was sort of scoping out a tomb (I think it was Ominous Crypt?) west in the Vahnatai Lands. Ever since then, my entire party will become diseased every so often, with the caption that we feel very ill and our hair is falling out. What is this curse? How do I get rid of it? Thanks!
