  1. Exile: Escape from the Pit. Dang, I haven't played that in over a decade. The first version had white ground and the walls were also way different. Talk about playing a game that was hard. If you didn't keep notes, you definitely lost track from time to time. Those were the days... Post #737
  2. I think titles for those who contribute the most are well-deserved. People like Alorael, Drake, and Slarty have done lots of things for these forums. Post #736
  3. That is until the defeated peoples that were thrown into the pit banded together and somehow found both a way back to the surface and Emilaine's weakness. These being accomplished, the Pit Dwellers overthrew Emilaine and restored Shaper rule. Story has a bit of familiarity to it, huh? Post# 735! 😎
  4. Welcome back, Sir Motrax. Glad to see that you are still around at times. There are some good games still being made by ole Jeff and Marianne. I also come here from time to time to check in with everyone. Post# 734! 😎
  5. I almost hate playing the newer games because there's no sense of adventure. In the Exile/Avernum games, you get a quest then you have to ask where to find the place where you go to. Now you get a quest and a marker comes up telling you where to go. While it makes for easier game play, I think some of the adventure is taken away. This isn't just a Spiderweb thing, it's been happening for years. That's just mu 2 cents. Post #733
  6. Granted, but the actors in the play are soon struck down with the common cold they got from Alorael. I wish to live comfortably for the next 20 years.
  7. Didn't want or mean to break any rules. I misread the "advance opinions" to mean advancing in the game.
  8. DO NOT GIVE COPIES OF THIS GAME TO ANYBODY! DO NOT SHARE YOUR PASSWORD. DO NOT PLAY WITH IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS. DON’T DROP HINTS OR ADVANCE OPINIONS, EVEN POSITIVE ONES, ON THE MESSAGE BOARDS. IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT THAT THE BETA VERSIONS STAY UNDISTRIBUTED! How does what I said violate NDA?
  9. They do look pretty good. Can't wait to play it. Post #727.
  10. So here I am playing the game for the 3rd time and have to say that I still enjoy it. The little differences make a difference. (Does that even make sense?) Maybe it's nostalgia or whatever. Having played E3:RW and A3, you would think that playing this game would get old, yet it isn't true. There is still enough newness within to make even a 3rd play through enjoyable. I hate that there's no horses though. Currently I'm just wandering around after finishing off the golems doing odd stuff. Feisty fist of pain! Post #726
  11. The first game from Spiderweb Software I played was the demo to Exile 2: Crystal Souls I found on a Galaxy of Games CD in the summer of 1997. Three days later, I found Exile 1: Escape from the Pit on another disk. 4 months later I was able to come up with the money to register both games. Post #725
  12. Just figured I'd write a line or two to say hello (hello). Good to see that Spiderweb forums are still kicking in there. Can't wait to see what this Queen's Wish comes into. I only put $200 into it, but that's all I could do. Played a bit of A3:RW before my laptop died. I'd get another one but I hardly have time to play computer games anymore. I got my CDL in February and have been driving a truck with my brother since then. Been all over the lower 48 except the northwest and northeast areas. It's pretty cool to get to travel around place to place and get paid for it. Post #724
  13. Like Hawkes Manse in E3/A3? That would be nice. Post #722
  14. I remember in the 90's when each game was $45 and hintbooks were $12. Post #721
  15. Sounds great! Can't wait to play them. Post #720
  16. How is everyone doing around here? Me, I've been working a lot and haven't been on these forums for over a year. I was just checking in to see Avernum 3:Ruined World was coming out. Looks like we still have time to prepare for its release. I did see something about a brand new game with a new engine. I wonder what that will be like? Post #718
  17. AAY-ver-num. That's just how I've always said it. Like Erika's name... I pronounced it Air-REE-kah to give it a more mystical feel. My own name also has weird pronunciation. It's pronounced Soul-beorg. Post #717
  18. I guess that kinda makes me a 'Bob' too, in a way.
  19. Look up Alan Wake on Steam. Nice little game. Not at all easy, but very fun. Good graphics and decent storyline.
  20. Good to see yall again. Resting from working all week. Gotta mow my yard tomorrow and burn a brush pile. Only have one day off. Gotta make the most of it. Post #714
  21. How about buying the rights to Homeland: The Stone of Night and remaking that? Not only remaking, but adding more to it as well! Post # 713
  22. Been buying Doctor Who DVD's online. I have the entire NuWho except for the second half of season 9 and a few specials. I also have 6 Classic serials. Will be getting more of those over the next few months. Post # 712
  23. I've got a few recipes around here somewhere. Including my famous Mushroom Casserole and Cavewood Stew. Post #711
