    Yes! Louder than Bombs is incredible. Rank is just as good. To borrow a Partridge-ism, my favourite The Smiths album is definitely "The Best of The Smiths". Hmm. I really love Radiohead, and I think OK Computer is actually one of my least favourite record they've put out. I like that it;s unboundedly depressing (but is it even? Even songs like Exit Music and Let Down and No Surprises have a kind of escapist joy to them!) and I like that the 20th Anniversary remaster is as felicitous as the original was. I mean, either way, hooray! Maybe one day I'll post proper thoughts on these albums/artists. <3

    Got a coupon for Avernum 3 on steam

    I got one on day one and assumed it was because I had other Spiderweb games in my library. Previously Spidweb offered a discount if you had owned a previous version of the game - this might just be another way of doing that. Anyway, I read somewhere that Avernum 3 is doing pretty well, and will fund the next game.

    What will happen after Avernum 3 Ruined World?

    In the most recent Reddit AMA Jeff did, he made it clear he was never going to touch BoA again. This is probably fair enough. I'd be hesitant to drop more time on something that almost cost me my livelihood. Edit: "We have no plans to touch anything about Blades of Avernum ever again." https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/7vyv09/im_jeff_vogel_founder_of_spiderweb_software_since/dtw7oei/
  7. Haha! I'm glad I could be a thorn in your side if it gets stuff fixed. Will the achievements trigger if I get to 10 and 20 spells?
  8. So. v101 fixed the mage spell bug, and the surface medal, but having 5 priest rituals at level 3 doesn't trigger *that* medal. Similar situation?
  9. Ah! Thanks for coming back to me about the Level 3 spell bug. I've started a new game anyhow, just in case I'd somehow done something wrong (and what's 20 hours in a Spidweb game anyway), so I'll look out for that as I progress. Still no medal for venturing out onto the surface though, and literally all I've done this game is hoof it to Anaximander and then out into the surface. I'm playing through Steam, and haven't edited any files. I'll uninstall and redownload tonight to see if that does anything, and will report back.

  11. Ah, so this is a known bug and wasn't picked up during testing? I feel like it should be mentioned somewhere?
  12. Hey. Achievements are something that are (unfortunately) important to me as a player. And they're broken in A3. :'( I have cleared the slime quest, but the game does not credit me as having even returned to the surface (though, oddly, Steam does). I have just trained my fifth mage spell to level 5, and neither the game nor Steam have recognised this. Anybody else have this issue/have a fix?

  13. I like the Xian Skull. It's just as good in this game, except it doesn't play audio that says "Hey I'm a talking skull". :'( I didn't have one while playing yesterday, but one was about sliths chasing down avernites, and one was about a long dark warren of waterfalls. Clearly throwbacks to previous Avernum games.
  14. Definitely don't have any named items yet. I'm on Day 15/16 if that pins it down any? Encountered on both the surface and Avernum. Kind of annoying having them pop up constantly.
