  1. Finding Brasula

    I took a long break from A3 and I finally got around to delivering Brasula's letter but I can't find her to give her the return receipt. Any help out there?
  2. Spirit Claw in Avadon 3

    Any reason why it keeps on saying that Spirit Claw isn't available to my shaman? He's around Level 16 intelligence. I'm at the sea caverns doing a favor for the dragon.
  3. Vana's Stead

    Can't get to the island with the trap door and stone structure. Otherwise I've cleaned our the area.
  4. Vana's Stead

    Still am not getting it. Sorry.
  5. I am playing GF5 for the first time. I found it hidden away on my harddrive all registered and everything. I just can't get the keyboard commands to work. I've reloaded the game and looked at all my open apps to make sure that there is no Quicken Scheduler open, since I remember this issue from previous iterations on GF. Can anyone give me a hand? I'm running OS 10.10.3 on a late 2012 Mac Mini. I also shut down by virus scanner, but that didn't make any difference.

  7. I noticed after finishing Avernum 1 that most of the male characteres are known by their last names and the female characters by their first names.
  8. Ibu Quest

    I'm being told I'm too late to save Ibu even though I got rid of the zephr. Truth is, I did mess around elsewhere in the borderlands before attacking the zephr. Is this being too late an inevitable outcome, or is it because I waited and di other things in the borderlands? (I'd search the boards to see if anyone else had this problem, but oddly you can't use a three letter word in the Spiderweb boards search engine.)
  9. I'm still having trouble with this quest. Im able to keep the sentinels occupied with turrets and animal friends, but I can't find a way out of the room. Is there a button somewhere that I am missing? I'm assuming I can find it while the sentinels are pre-occupied with the sideshow. Unless I'm supposed to kill all of the sentinels. Am I?
  10. Regaining Health After Battle

    Anyone have any insight into what are the factors that effect the speed with which one regains health after a fight?
  11. Regaining Health After Battle

    But the time to regenerate seems to vary and I'm not sure what causes that. Not going into battle is, of course, a sine qua non for regeneration.
  12. Final Fight With Redbeard

    I just can't get success on this battle, even when playing on "casual." I've got all of my Pact buddies with me but RB always escapes through the portal. Never had this problem before in the 20 years I've been playing Spiderweb games. Any suggestions?
  13. Council's Curiosity

    I can't get through the gate on the floor that the wretches are to complete this quest.
  14. Playing the rebel side

    I'm trying to play the rebel side from the get-go. Does this mean that when I first run into the rebels in the contested lands that I should avoid fighting them?
  15. Map of Linnaeus

    Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I would like to have more time to look at the map of Linnaeus--it flashes by as the game is loading--but I can't find how to do it.
  16. Map of Linnaeus

    Boy that is weird. I wonder why the map was redrawn to eliminate its placement. National security issues or some such?
  17. Map of Linnaeus

    Where is Avadon? (Maybe I'm just missing it.)
  18. Leaving Avadon the first time

    I've just started the game and I'm trying to leave Avadon for the first time after having briefed Redbeard and otherwise having puttered around the castle getting supplies and talking to folks. However, when I get to the portal, it tells me I can't go until I've briefed Redbeard, and when I go back up to see him he tells me to get lost. Is this a bug or is there something I have forgotten to do? Seems like a good game--I've been playing Spiderweb games now since Exile I, almost 20 years I guess.
  19. I'm still having trouble with this dungeon despite the help from Randomizer above. I've followed his directions but I still end up in the room with the pathway to go back up the stairs. I fear I am in the wrong one of the three rooms. How do I find the right room? Also, its difficult to find one's orientation in the dark here but I assume that when I land in the rooms that I am pointing north. Correct? Thanks.
  20. I'm looking for the back door to the portal in Verbeaux Castle since the front gate is locked and guarded by what looks like a powerful ensemble. Any hints that anyone could give? Thanks.
  21. Too much to do

    I've been playing Spiderweb stuff since 1994--you'd think I would have grown out of it by now. Anyway, I like the new game--particularly the fact that you can control your animals and the interactions between the team members, but I do feel a little harried. Weekly reports to Redbeard, the wandering character pestering me all the time--a lot of demands on my time. Is something bad going to happen to me if I wander off on side quests and postpone the big stuff? Is the big stuff going to become moot, or can I make a little money on the side without losing the main plot thread?
  22. Beraza Pit Question

    I've cleaned out the pit--whew!--but there is an inaccessible room just before you go into the large room where the drake is, and its protected by some kind of rune or something. How do I get in?
  23. Beraza Pit Question

    I guess that's right. I actually didn't notice them until I was done in the dungeon and the mind-controlling creature had taken off for parts unknown. (It seems like must be an area in Avadon cluttered with various characters who have cut and run rather than fighting to the death. Perhaps they get special subsidized housing..... )
