Za-Khazi Run: Special Items with no resale value

Recommended Posts

Having just completed the Za-Khazi Run, I was disappointed by a major difference between its ending and the BoE scenario ending. Unlike the Exile scenario, this version gave neither text acknowledgement nor gold reward for reaching the end with any of the following:

Crystal of Purity

Melora Opal

Scroll of Dragons

Slith Statuette*

Malachite Statue.

 

Now I know that the first three were tribute options for Khoth, who died on my way to Cavalier, and the slith statuette can be sold in Assikvas for 1000, but I haven't found clues to the value of the malachite statue. This left me with three questions:

1. Is there really no text to acknowledge the value of these special items?

2. What were these items worth in the original BoE scenario?

3. Is there any benefit to stealing the malachite statue?

1. Is there really no text to acknowledge the value of these special items?

As far as I can tell, there's no text at the end for any of these things.

2. What were these items worth in the original BoE scenario?

Someone with a better BoE editor setup than I have can probably answer this sooner than I can.

3. Is there any benefit to stealing the malachite statue?

If you remove it and then put it in another place in the town, you can cast a ritual of sanctification that cleans up some of the evil magic around. I could be more specific, but my BoA editor is being a little wonky on this computer.

Thanks for replying. It's too bad there's no text at the end. I know there was text on an edition of BoE I played in the late 90's.

Hopefully someone can comment on the gold.

I did sanctify the altar after removing the statue. Still wish it the item itself had value.

Got BOE editor to work. Melora Opal is 2500, Crystal of Purity is 1000, and Malachite Statute is 1000. I don't see any sign that the Scroll of Dragons counted for anything back in BOE.

What about the statue item you take from that evil altar surrounded by skulls on pikes? It took me a while to get away with it, but I didn't find a purpose of it.. was a while ago when I played this, but I remember this much..or not. heh

The statute item you take from the evil altar is the Malachite Statue. As noted above, at the end of the BoE scenario, you got 1000 for it, but that was (inexplicably) taken out of the BoA scenario.
