  1. Thanks, i didn't really play around with the toolbar at the top, so I didn't notice the hints. I Don't really want to change my party, i like diversity and if its not suicide to play the game with the one I already have, then i'd like to simply tweak there stats instead of give everyone spells. I must have wandered too far, i never noticed anything like goblins yet, simply been running into bandits, which are a -lot- harded in Blades of Exile than they were in Avernum 3. Also came across a bunch of Ogres already, and that was crazy for my starting out party.
  2. I'd have to say the Slime plague. Its most visible in its devestation on the surrounding area, and the NPC's have some great stories about previous slime invasions. I remember a scripted event or two where slimes oozed through the cracks in town's walls and the soldiers rushed out to meet them on the "Field of Battle" Of course, other plagues might be just as 'Colorful' But i never got too far into Avernum/Exile 3 without cheating. And when I cheat, i don't talk to NPC's or really explore my environment, its just a killfest.
  3. I attempted the first two scenarios you get with the registered version of Blades of Exile, and i can't seem to make a dent in any monsters. Of course, my parties are created the second i start the scenario so that may be the problem. I was under the impression however, that even starter parties should do well in the first scenario. Am i wandering too far, and totally missing the newbie area? Can someone point this out to me if this is the case? My party consists of 1 sword using warrior, 1 bashing using warrior, 1 polearm using warrior, a thief/archer, priest, and a mage finally. Any decent character build guides? Not sure if im spending points right either.
  4. Thanks for the replies, i just ordered it. Would have bought it last night, but couldn't find my wallet. The -horror-
  5. I used to own Avernum 3 on my old and relatively crappy computer, and found it quite enjoyable. I've played the demo of Blades of Exile even longer before and found it very different. My real question is, being used to Avernum, will buying blades of Exile cause me to learn the system all over, or will it be strangely familiar, if somewhat outdated? Id prefer to buy BoE over BoA because of the multitude of Scenarios available, along with the floating idea around the boards that the BoE editor is somehow better, therefore allowing for better scenarios.
  6. Korojutsu, im positive you mistook what Ben meant. I believe he was saying that He could always make one scenario for Blades of Exile, then the next scenario he made could be for Blades of Avernum. He said absolutely nothing about transferring scenarios between the two
  7. The only time I remember using the capture soul and simulacrum spell was right after I got them in A3, on that spiny worm you can find in the same Vahatni settlement. It was fun to just summon it against weak creatures if i got bored, but i never bothered to capture any strong or usefull monsters
  8. Gremlins, they're everywhere, they're purple and they have that annoying confusion attack. Plus they make odd noises
  9. Ahh that backwards writing is a pain on my eyes. Got used to it after a minute or two though. No wonder i had to ask for help on the boards when i did the same thing, i couldnt read the tech support page
  10. Either with the gifts, as their Idol. Or in the cult of the sacred item, because i would have some amusing company
  11. I love the Spiders, especially compared to the Areanas... I just don't want them in any other games. We should have something equally unique and annoying
  12. Same here, if your the only one using your computer and you have any working knowledge of a computer you shouldnt get a virus. If its also used by your family/spouse then you might want to turn it back on after your done with the comp.
  13. Nephil. Not because i think they would win...but because their cat people
  14. This happens with all the Avernum games i own, namely everyone but Exiles of Avernum, which i will correct when it comes out When i go to save the game, by clicking the disk icon on the lower toolbar, then clicking "Save Game" on the popup menu, sometimes it doesnt work Oh the confirmation message comes up "Game Saved" But it usually isnt true. I could go off to dinner, come back to load my game and i just lost 40 minutes of work. Does this happen with other people, or is it some Computer/Game issue that just i have
  15. Well ill try deleting the .dat file first. *Crosses fingers* Ill let you know how it turned out Edit:Yea, it did unregister the game, but i have the number around here somewhere...
  16. To sway myself from cheating, i disabled the character editor for Avernum 3. But i found myself in a tight spot having forgotten to save in a loooong time. I just need it back so i can revive one character, then ill turn it off again. But how do i turn it back on again? The program just said go to www.Avernum.com
