  1. No mention of the "Generic Dungeon" in Rentar's keep? 11 here: http://ironycentral.com/harehunter/Avernum3/Maps1/id171.html
  2. Playing through Avernum 3 (the remake, obviously). As usual, I have a bunch of misc questions - thought I might make a thread instead of spamming in different relevant topics. 1. A number of weapons / armor seem to be worse in every way than the other weapons / armor, despite being worth more for example, Ash Bow and Crude Bow, or Bronze Bracers and Iron Gauntlets. Am I missing something? 2. Was there any benefit whatsoever to agreeing to let the bandit chief (first quest, south of Fort Emergence) go? Feel free to use spoilers. 3. Keeping in mind that I welcome spoilers - what's a good early game weapon / armor to get blessed at Portal Fortress?

    Ok, I've just spent several days waiting, and checking the Delan in every morning. Did he move from his location of "the inn in Delan or an abandoned shop in Krizsan"? What shop is he supposed to be in, specifically?

    Can you actually find Carrie or her remains during the Tower of Magi disaster? Resolve Bernard's request in any way? Also, where exactly is the mage with no name that's supposed to tell you how to enter the tower of Zakl?

    A bit more specific, please?
  6. Howl of Terror in the Rhakasha part of the Remote Cavern. Requires more than 22 - 28?

    Avernum 3 questions

    I'm about to reach the endgame, well before day 100. Can I keep playing afterwards to deal with the Tower of Magi disaster? Any way to camp / fast forward the days, other than running back and forth across the worldmap? Edit - Apparently, I don't have the option to ask Judith about Pit of the Wyrm? What's the per-requisite?

    What does Demon Feast do? Would I have been able to avoid the compulsion to travel to the Great Circle had I not worshiped at the various circles? What's the fight under Keep Tinraya like if you didn't get the anti-Vahantai weapon? Do the crystal souls do anything interesting?

    Haha, you can get it Gale without ever discovering the tunnel. Talk to one of the blackmailing citizens through the gate, deny them repeatedly, then run around the walls until you're captured as a spy. I guess that's a way to bypass whatever rep/plague check allows you to use the tunnel.

    Is "one of your characters falls ill for some reason" the result of having carried around a Uranium bar, or something to do with Xian artifacts, or what? Also, how do I get rid of that problem?

    It's what one might refer to as "a joke". "Sentinel Golem" or whatever.

    Avernum 3 questions

    Ok. But you'd only find out about it after you've already decided to kill the drake, since naming them deep stalkers gives zero indication. Why not just drop "immune to everything golems" in the same spot.

    The deep stalker in the Drake Aerie are immune to literally everything until the drake dies. WTF.

    Avernum 3 questions

    That is amazingly dumb. I'm all for choices having consequences, but they should strive to be coherent and internally consistent consequences that make sense within the game world. No one else being able to lift the curse is just arbitrary (particularly the Tower of Magi priestess that needs to save her powers for something more important than the biggest emergency Avernum is currently facing) Also, freaking Judith decides to attack me because I robbed the Aname treasure, really?

    Avernum 3 questions

    Who (if anyone) can remove a dread curse after robbing the Anama temple?

    Avernum 3 questions

    Ok, could you be a bit more concrete? In case my post didn't make it clear, I managed to destroy the barrier between the Troglos and Giants (after killing the shaman on behalf of the king). Is there anything else I can do?

    Avernum 3 questions

    I just traveled to the monastery of madness. Ruined the altar there, got the shield, got ambushed by monks on the way out. No climactic duel, no dialog with anyone in the monastery, everyone in Gerbra are still brainwashed and I can't even provoke the greeter into a fight. Am I missing anything? Also, is there a way to peacefully talk to the Troglos once the barrier is down? The message when you kill their king ("there will never be peace between Troglos and humans now") kinda implies there should be more. You can't access Sulfras' treasure even after killing her?

    Like I said - I stacked DT to 27, no difference that I could see. ... Wait, do resistances only go up to 90%?

    A3 Spiral Crypt & Gorvifal

    Does a piercing crystal cast dispell barrier at level 3? Seems more likely to be level 2. Source - came there early enough to not have the spell myself (obv) and got the "need to cast this spell at a higher level" in different spots when using crystals.

    Avernum 3 questions

    I'm sorry, explain please. How exactly does an additional 1% multiplicative effect even works, particularly when you can legitimately stack it without abusing bugs? Seems like a fairly obvious urban legend (or whatever the terms for these is when it concerns video games) explanation "oh hell, it probably adds 1% to a random effect. Oh, it clearly doesn't? Multiplies, then".
  21. Xander77

    Avernum 3 questions

    BTW, I notice that common wisdom claims that Dark Thoughts provide 1% to your mental resistance. That seems to be false - you can stack DT in the Vahkshos' tomb indefinitely (at least, your special items will reflect the increase), and it doesn't result in a huge boost.

    Just stumbled onto a Guarded Tunnel next to Blackcrag fortress. I'm assuming this is the tunnel the thieve's guild in Lorelei was selling a password to? Anything I missed out on by just slaughtering everyone inside?

    Avernum 3 questions

    Some soldiers in the Squiggus area attacked me (due to having a Nephil in the party) on sight... and now the entire town is hostile. Any way to fix that, or are Squiggus and Lennus now a lost cause?
  25. I cleared out the Spiral Crypt just before undertaking separate contracts for a Zombie and Skeleton. Been looking ever since. The vamp tower and the area around it was full of wights, ghosts, and skeleton types, but no actual humble skelly's or zombies. Edit - literally the moment I typed this and went back to the game, I had a random encounter with a single skeleton. Woot. Now to find a zombie. Editx2 - "Alakas Colony" (south of Calloc) has a guaranteed Eyebeasts + regular Skeleton spawn.
