    Chasm bats

    Can someone help me find the entrance to the chasm bats? (A5, quest given in Muck)

    Chasm bats

    Thanks for the tip about using Shafrir's tower, Ess-Eschas! That did the trick. And I know I've seen the path Randomizer talked about, but couldn't find it again. Appreciate the help!

    Chasm bats

    Well, assuming I found the area you described. . . when I go downstairs all I find is a tunnel entrance into the giant's spire. The area map shows the bat ledge is opposite where I am, but I still can't seem to find the right entrance.
  4. I'm working on Malachite's stealth quest. I've touched the 3 in the northeast and can't find the one in the northwest. I've walked the area several times. Where is the pylon?

    A5 stealth quest pylons

    Wow. . . this is at least my 3rd maybe 4th playthrough of the game. . . looks like I'd remember something like this! Thanks so much!!😁
  6. I have the safe passage scroll from Knight in Sharimik, and I go to the Troglo Castle where I'm supposed to be arrested and put in a cell, etc., etc. But when I get there, all anyone does is attack me, and I never see the king. What am I doing wrong?
  7. The scroll is definitely in special items. When I first approached the castle, the text just said that the guards standing there ran away in fear. Not being able to do this part of the story correctly impacts my gaining the reward from Knight in Sharimik, so I am pretty annoyed at the mix-up. I don't think I have an earlier save that won't make me crazy having to go back so far.
  8. I'm going to try one more time to get an answer to this situation: I have the scroll from Sharimik to take to the troglo king. I go there, no one arrests me or throws me in jail. I kill every single being on the ground floor. I work my way around the next floor, again killing everyone in sight. I find the king. He wants to know if I read the book he left in my cell. Since I was never put in a cell, there is no book. Therefore, the story cannot continue, unless I just decide to kill the king up front. There is clearly something wrong! The story does not unfold the way it has in my previous 2 playthroughs. Will anyone help me?
  9. I have killed everyone in the castle without ever being thrown into jail or seeing the king. Can anyone help?
  10. I remember all that from previous playthroughs. My issue is that the option to show the scroll doesn't happen. Yesterday I killed everyone on the entire top floor and no one ever mentioned taking me to the king or the scroll or anything.
  11. Oh!!! Of course! Get on the island to deal with the guard towers! Duh. . . thanks so much!
  12. I am replaying this treasure of an older game, and am ready to go destroy the empire portal. I can't for the life of me find the entrance to it. If anyone is still out there checking this board, I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!
  13. Well, there are guard towers just west of Pyrog's fort that won't let me go past, no matter how many times I try to "speed through". So I haven't been able to go on the northern river. The person who gave the quest to raid the portal said to travel down the river to the west and look for a concealed passage on the east side of the shore. Totally baffling. . . I assume I'm far enough along, since that and the kill Garzhad quest are the only things left for me to do. And, who is Khoth? I'm quite impressed that you're still monitoring this forum. 🙂
  14. Where can I get level 3 move mountains? The hintbook says it's in Fort Emergence, but I don't find it there. Thanks!

    Confused in Goldcrag

    Ok, so I'm wandering around Goldcrag with several quests pending here. As I understand it, Redbeard said to convince the Pact commander to help in the war, but also to make allies of one of the warborn. But the only way to get the Pact commander to help is by killing two of the warborn leaders. Are these mutually exclusive efforts? I've chatted with the duchess of the wretches. . .if I decide to kill her, won't the rest of the horde come to her defense? Any tips will be appreciated. .
  16. Never mind! I had missed a circle outside the factory.
  17. I have played all the Avernum and Avadon games multiple times, but have just begun my very first ever play as a singleton with Ruined World. I read all of the tips in Randomizer's piece about not sucking as a singleton. I welcome any other tips you experienced singletons have for me! As I'm starting out, it's almost impossible for me to imagine defeating the upcoming monsters without backup. Question: I'd like to be able to use mage spells as a soldier type and I understand that the heavy armor blocks that. Is it possible to get to a point where the melee tank guy can use mage spells as well as priest spells? Mages have some of the best area of effect spells.
  18. Another unexpected thing--in the Pit of the Wyrm I tried to get Divine Retribution, but the text said the group's arcane lore skill must be 15 and that I have 14. Ten is the max in the magic chart. . . is there a trick to getting the required 15?
  19. Hmmm. . . I have the 1.02 version. Guess I need to work on getting some more first aid skill. Thanks!
  20. Good to know the junk bag isn't unlimited! 🙂 I keep coming across unusual things as a singleton that I never encountered in previous playthroughs. I'm trying to kill the unicorns for the farmers near Bremerton, and the unicorns keep outsmarting and outrunning me. Text says I'm not good enough at sneaking through the outdoors quietly or some such. My nature lore is 10, which is max, so what other skill/trait is needed?
  21. Ok, thanks. Here's a strange issue I'm having: I find objects (such as the fine wine and the bellows) for a courier quest and put them in the junk bag when the regular bag is getting full. When I go to sell the junk items, I go through and remove items from the junk bag I want to keep. But when I look through the bag, the objects I tucked away have vanished. The first time it happened, I just thought I had accidentally sold them, but the second time I'm positive that didn't happen. Why do things disappear from the junk bag? I needed those 4 bottles of fine wine I found in Grindstone to complete a quest. . . that stuff is hard to come by.
  22. I'm moving right along on this singleton journey and did figure out how to wear certain armors and still cast mage spells. I keep trying to buy the summon aid spell and it tells me my mage spells skills aren't high enough. My mage skill is 13. What needs to be higher to get the better, upper level spells? I'm having similar problems with the better offense priest spells.
  23. I have seen several courier tasks involving taking seed corn to someone. I don't recall ever seeing any. . . just out of curiosity, is there seed corn somewhere? Thanks!
  24. I appreciate all this info.
