  1. Oh My!! That must be it!! And I found those at roughly the time that this started occurring.... What a dilemma; those are pretty nice gauntlets... I'll have to decide how badly I object to getting acidified...
  2. Heh... interesting... actually, I had *two* of them, but not in normal inventory, I had them in our junk bag. I had read that we could safely carry them in the junk bag, and I wondered if I'd eventually find a use for them (which I haven't, so far). Well, apparently I can carry *one* of them safely in junk, since I was doing so for most of the game, but when I grabbed the second one awhile back, that *does* seem to be when our 'entertainment' began... Anyway, thanks for the warning, they're gone now... //**************************************** Later note: no, I'm still getting acid attacks: "One of your characters suddenly falls ill for some reason!" I have gold, fine steel, iron ingots, but uranium any more. Junk bag is empty. And as far as I can tell, I don't have the Xian Pouch either.
  3. Actually, I'm getting acid-ed... it happens every once in awhile, and doesn't really do a meaningful amount of damage, but it's just odd!! I'm assuming I picked up some Xian item that I shouldn't have, and I *do* have several Xian items, though most of them I'm not wearing, but the only one that I've read about that has such an effect is the Xian Pouch, which I don't have in inventory, as far as I can tell. I should probably check Special Items; maybe it's hiding there; or maybe the Xian-item definitions changed in A3RW??
  4. Aye, that I was able to do, once I realized that I needed to seek out that option!!
  5. I'm not entirely sure whether we're talking about the same bridge?? When I left Blackcrag, both times, I backtracked back to where the bridge-that-cannot-be-walked-on was, and in both cases the walls giving access to the bypass passage had closed again, and Move Mountains 3 did not open them... without Prazac's key to the portal, I could not leave. I tried 'u' in every room between the bridge and the walkway up into the castle, and found no hidden passages anywhere... ???
  6. Wow!!! You're right, I never knew about that!!! Thanks... ITM, using 'u' confirms that there are no controls anywhere around that inaccessible switch in the smugglers' tunnel; Is that room accessible from some other path?? Anyway, I'll going back to the Empress and talk to her again; I don't recall if she previously gave me a key or not. Later: That's cool... to get her key, I have to pursue the comment about "the mayor told me to give you this receipt to get a reward" ... I would not normally have broached such a trivial topic with the Empress of the Empire !!! Unfortunately, it seems like that's the only way to successfully escape from the castle...
  7. Well, I'm mystified by all this... I fought my way in the first time, saw a lever in a room but can't find any way to access it. Pressed two buttons to go around the side path, but after dealing with things in the fortress and coming back this way, I found myself trapped here, with the side access closed off, and no access to the buttons. The bridge, of course, cannot be used. Cannot shoot the buttons with a bow. Does that switch in the closed-off room have anything to do with this trap? So then I started the whole thing over, and now am trying more determinedly to get to that switch in the inaccessible room, but I don't see *any* way to get there... What am I missing???
  8. Wow, nothing happens at all... I tried resting in the house, leaving town and walking around, then coming back, even went off and fulfilled some other quests and then come back... she never says *anything* to us... Later note: huh... well, I decided to blow this off entirely, and went wandering north. At some point, several days after last visit, I completed a quest which drew me back to Lorelei, and while I was here I stopped in at home again... and I got the "final quest" message from the servant... I went into the room of statues, talked to the old man, and got the blade. *None* of the intermediate steps ever happened. Apparently that is how this quest plays out in A3RW...
  9. So I found this item, and it's stats indicate that it is quite a nice piece of armor - except that it equips as a weapon (replacing my sword), not as armor. Sadly, it doesn't appear to have *any* desirable qualities as a weapon. Is this a bug ??? or a joke maybe?? Nevermind, I get it; it's a shield. Unfortunately, none of my characters use a shield. Oh well...
  10. Hokay, I can live with that... I *still* miss tooling around on the rivers (I *think* it was in A1), checking out territory, but none of the monster bands could reach me... and I could reach places that I simply couldn't reach by land. I loved the feeling of exploring!!!
  11. No?? Okay, failed memories, been awhile since I played. I remember tooling around in boats, but maybe that was earlier Avernae...
  12. Wow... that's pretty sad; one of the things I enjoyed about the original A3, was being able to tool around in a boat and explore out-of-the-way places... Maybe I'll just go back to that version, though I think I'll be stuck at 800x600 if I do...
  13. I looked around the docks, but don't see anyone to buy a boat from. There's a boat sitting in the shop, when I click on it, it says "maybe you can find someone to buy it from", but I cannot find any such person?? (BTW, I've purchased the game)
  14. Thanks for all the responses!! No, I don't want spoilers, I'm just glad to know that neither of the two people that I've really come to count on (Yosheria and Yannick) will disappear for good!! I've already handled Yosheria's quest, and will handle Yannick's when it occurs as well. Man, some of the choices I have to make in this game are real gut-wrenchers!! Especially Silke...
