  1. I mean, I get that it is realistic for a party of adventurers to find nothing but useless mundane weapons and armor in most shops. But RPGs have trained me to think that new towns mean new shops with better items. It makes no sense of course. But Avernum takes it to the extreme. There are basically no useful items in shops save a few herbs, crafting supplies and potions.
  2. The constructs wouldn't let me past after the Slime plague, I assume I would have to do the next plague first.
  3. I just finished the slime factory. Explored Tower of Magi, but there is also a bunch of other stuff in upper avernum I ignored. What order should I tackle stuff in?
  4. The weapons have the exact same stats. Weight, damage, crit chance. Is there a hidden bonus to the waveblade or something? Otherwise, wtf?
  5. An extra trait every 4 levels seems like it is vastly better than a flat +10% to damage (not even hit chance!) and a single elemental resistance. Even for a character who wanted to use polearms or a bow, isn't the extra traits better? Am I crazy?
  6. Eh, I'll just live with it then, I'm far past that point now. In fact, I just beat the game. I may try to get the few remaining achievements otherwise I'm waiting for A3.
  7. I've got my Slith using the Molten Halberd, because I like the cleave damage. But I've got a few spears sitting in my inventory. I always find it hard to decide what's best in a Spiderweb game. Is a +1 to this skill better than that skill? Is more damage better than a skill bonus? Just too many options that interact in different ways.
  8. So I didn't pick up the Vahnatai Castle quest from Oglai until after I had already gotten the information, reported that information to the council, and recovered the crystal soul. so now that quest is stuck in my quest log and won't complete. I tried going back to the castle, reading the book again and returning. I've gotten all 3 crystal souls at this point.
  9. D&D 5e campaign setting?

    Has anyone done any work on adapting Avadon or Avernum to 5e? I'd be very curious to see such a setting.
  10. Was the remix ever released? Or were there no testers, so it couldn't get off the ground?
  11. I'd suggest looking at Torment: Tides of Numenara. They stated they are going turn-based. It won't be out for a while yet though. Meanwhile, the Shadowrun games might be what your looking for. They are on steam.
  12. Alright. It's sad though. I have a friend that would really enjoy Geneforge. I'd love to buy the bundle and give away the other games.
  13. So Steam bundle is on sale cheaper than just buying Avernum 2 separately. I have all the other games. Will I be able to give out the other games as gifts or once I download Crystal Souls will the whole thing be locked to my account?
