Avadon Abilities, Items List and Reference for Scripting


Recommended Posts

Has anyone posted lists of all the Abilities, Items and a reference for Avadon Scripting?

For Abilities, i.e. #216 = Magical Damage etc.

I don't find these in the Strategy Central topic or in a general search - as they exist for the Avernum and Geneforge Series.

There are a number of Avadon-specific script entries that could use references/descriptions, like:

ab_node_probability 1 = 0;

ab_node_prob_per_train_level 1 = 5;

ab_node_type 2 = 0;

ab_node_effect_type 2 = 2;

ab_node_base_amount 2 = 5;

ab_node_amount_per_level 2 = 5;

I may have missed these in my search, if so, a pointer would be appreciated.

Cheers!

Special Items: full text

0 Letter of Introduction

You are supposed to present this letter when you arrive at Avadon, as proof that you are actually supposed to be there.

1 Yellow Symbol

This is a faintly glowing yellow crystal on a copper chain. When wearing it, certain gates in Avadon will open for you.

2 Blue Symbol

This is a faintly glowing blue crystal on a silver chain. When wearing it, many gates in Avadon will open for you.

3 White Symbol

This is a faintly glowing pearl on a gold chain. When wearing it, almost all gates in Avadon will open for you.

8 Runed Athame

This is a tiny knife, razor-sharp and inscribed with runes. It has been enchanted with the ability to cut through magical wards.

9 The Krysanth

This is a book of magical rituals and spells, written in an obscure runic language and bound in black leather. Holding the book makes your hair stand on end and your skin numb.

10 Beast Sample

This gruesome trophy is a sample of flesh from the beast that was stalking townsfolk in Khemeria. The mages of Avadon wanted to examine it.

11 Moritz'Kri's Papers

You obtained these records in the tower of Moritz'Kri. Hopefully, Avadon can use them to figure out who, if anyone, was supplying and commanding that rogue wizard.

12 Titan's Papers

You found these ratty scrolls in the lair of the titans. Maybe they can help Avadon to determine who has been causing these creatures to invade The Kva.

13 Wretch's Message

This is a parchment envelope, wrinkled and stained with bits of food. A wretch named Svarl gave it to you to deliver to Redbeard.

14 Blue Ore

These fragments of rock look like iron ore, but with an odd, bluish tinge. You are collecting them in a burlap sack to take back to Goldcrag.

15 Titan's Club

This is a titan's ceremonial club. The handle is polished oak and the head is wrought iron. The iron has a strange texture. The craftsmanship is very unusual. The thing is five feet long and very heavy. You wear it strapped to your back.

16 Dragon Tooth

This is a fresh tooth of the dragon Zephyrine. A valuable and rare magical ingredient, in the right hands.

17 Ahmed's Libram

This is the magical journal of a wizard named Ahmed. You try to understand the cramped writing within, but you don't understand it. It's not a sort of magic you have ever studied.

18 Wayfarer Message

This is a message for the Wayfarer, describing why Ryozo was trying to hire the dragon Zhethron. You are supposed to place it under a barrel outside the entrance to the dragon's lair.

19 Ryozo Papers

You found these papers inside Commander Ryozo's quarters. They are letters to the Tawon Empire, offering to try to turn the dragon against the Pact. If genuine, they are evidence of, at the very least, light treason.

20 Stolen Papers

This is a set of records in a thick leather binding. The pages detail the boons requested from the dragon Zhethron over the last several months. The wretches have left the thing very grimy.

21 Corroded Circlet

This is a very old and tarnished metal circlet. You found it in the lair of the titans.

22 Wooden Totem

This is an old, polished wooden totem, covered with intricate carvings and set with semi-precious stones. When you touch it with your bare hands, you feel cold and full of fear.

23 Book of Recipes

This is a book of potions recipes, taken from the tower of the wizard Moritz'Kri. You flipped through it, but you don't know enough about alchemy to make use of it. If you tried to use it, you'd probably end up poisoned and exploded at the same time.

24 Basilisk Eggs

This is a clutch of four basilisk eggs. Small, tough, leathery things, that carry a singularly dangerous payload.

25 Drake Egg

This is the egg of a drake, an extremely rare and valuable item among particularly ambitious or amoral wizards and animal trainers.

26 Magic Green Goo

This is a clay flask full of green goo. The stuff is mobile, highly enchanted, and ready to be either studied or used in reckless magical experiments.

40 Unni's Blessing

Unni, a shaman in Dhorl Stead, blessed you. Her ward provides a small amount of protection from magical attacks (fire, cold, energy). (1% higher resistance)

41 Unni's Boon

Unni, a shaman in Dhorl Stead, blessed you. Her ward provides protection from magical attacks (fire, cold, energy). (2% higher resistance)

42 Hunter's Eye

You received special training from a hunter in the deep woods near Dhorl Stead. Your missile attacks will do more damage (2 levels higher).

43 Hunter's Blade

You received special training from a hunter in the deep woods near Dhorl Stead. Your melee attacks will do more damage (2 levels higher).

44 Ward of the Holklandan

You received special training while in Holklanda. Melee attacks will now do slightly less damage to you. (2% higher melee damage resistance)

45 Cunning of the Kellem

You received special training from a Kellem in Holklanda. You have a better chance of resisting enemy mental attacks. (8% higher chance of resisting mental attacks)

50 Avadon Cells Key

This heavy iron key will get you into the inner cells and lower tunnels of the Avadon dungeons.

51 Avadon Gate Key

You found this key on the body of Quiria, an escaped prisoner. It will open several gates in the Avadon dungeons.

52 Copper Wretch Key

You found this copper key, green with tarnish, in the caves of wretches south of Zhethron's Aerie.

53 Iron Wretch Key

You found this iron key, slightly bent and tinged with rust, in the caves of wretches south of Zhethron's Aerie.

54 Mine Key

This is a heavy steel key. You obtained it in the mines in the Jhereth deeps. Three deep scratches have been placed halfway up its length, though it's not immediately apparent what they signify.

55 Oghrym'Tor Key

You found this polished steel key in the fortress of Oghrym'Tor.

56 Spectral Key

This strange key is made of metal, but translucent. It seems to exist halfway between this world and another. You found it in Moritz'Kri's tower.

57 Rusted Bandit Key

This key was given to you by a shadowwalker named Harua. You met him in a bandit lair in the Beraza Woods.

58 Translucent Key

You found this key on the body of the leader of a group of bandits in the Beraza Woods. It is made of crystal and is almost invisible. It must bear some sort of enchantment.

I've posted what I was able to obtain. In fact, I did it the hard way - only just discovering the text lists that already exist in the Scripts directory. Ah well, it may still be useful to someone. :-)

  • 2 weeks later...

I'm hopeful someone has some insight into the meaning of the new Avadon script elements:

 

These are from the avobjsmisc.txt file, where Abilities are defined. I've made a guess at the following one - if I'm on the right track I'll keep going:

 

ab_node_type 0 = 6;//Missile Attack

 

Anyone know?

 

Thanks,

Avadon Script Reference

 

This is the first script reference I'm submitting, and it's not in any particular order, so this one, and others to come, will have to be organized into appropriate categories later.

 

Source: avitemschars.txt

 

it_variety = [num]

This indicates an item's type - which determines the character slot where an item can be equipped, or whether an item is consumable, usable, or can hold an ability.

 

1 | Body: Cloak, Mantle, Wrap, Shroud

2 | Armor: Robes, Tunics, Chainmail etc

3 | 1-Handed Weapons: Dagger, Rod, Sword etc

4 | Shields

5 | Fingers: Rings, Bands

6 | Feet: Boots, Shoes, Sandals

7 | Waist: Belts, Sashes, Girdles

8 | Hand/Forearm: Gloves, Bracelet, Bracers, Gauntlets

9 | Usable items: Potions, Scrolls, Food

11 | Charms, Runestones, Gems and Junk items

13 | Tools: Lockpicks, Lamp, Candle

14 | Coins

15 | Wands

16 | Neck: Necklace, Circlet etc

17 | Legs: Pants, Pantaloons, Greaves

18 | 2-Handed Weapons: Staff, Spear, Halberd

19 | Missile Weapons: Javelins, Bows, Razordisks

20 | Head: Cap, Crest, Helm etc

21 | Scarabs

 

The Avadon Script Reference will be a work in progress. There are new skill node-related items that are still opaque, to me at least. More time and experimentation will be needed to write accurate references for those.

 

A lot of the Avernum Script is still used or is usable, and that should probably by summarized and described for the sake of completeness.

 

Help is always appreciated!

 

Cheers!

Does anyone know if it's possible to insert non-breaking spaces using bbcode?

 

I'd like to provide better formatting for the lists I'm adding. I don't have any luck with tabs, sometimes they work, but mostly not.

 

Thanks!

@Slartie...

 

Thanks, I'll give it a try...

 

Code:
Description | Units | Unit Cost | Totaldescr       | unit  | ucost     | tot 

 

It's like a monotype font, with evenly sized spaces regardless of letter, so in this case it suits.

 

Now I'll try some other formatting within the code box.

 

Bold does have an effect - it shows up as both bold and italicized text. Huh? smile

Code:
Description | Units | Unit Cost | Totaldescr       | unit  | ucost     | tot 

 

This is Red and Bold (with Italic as a bonus, I guess).

Code:
Description | Units | Unit Cost | Totaldescript    | unit  | uni cost  | totally 

 

I'll experiment some more - in the meantime, thanks again for the tip!

 

Cheers,

Razid

@Infinite Clarity... smile

 

I'll check that out - unlikelier things have been known to occur. smile It would be good if it's something so simple...

 

Yep, missing New Courier Bold font - after replacing it's all ok again! Good call, Slarty!

 

Cheers!

Avadon Script

 

Class Restrictions for Weapons or Armor:

it_shaman[or BM or SW or SR] = 0;//class can use

it_shaman = 1;//class cannot use

it_shaman = 2;//restricted to this class

 

Basic Attack is hard-coded, based on Class/Equipment Slot:

If you edit the avitemschars.txt file and remove the class restriction, then equip one of those other classes with that weapon - the Basic Attack changes to match the class using the weapon. This is hard-coded, so it is probably the equipment slot, by class, that determines the Basic Attack Type.

 

An example:

begindefineitem 165;

import = 0;

it_name = "Shortbow";

it_variety = 19;//Missile Weapon

it_ability = 41;//Blademaster Bow

it_shaman = 1;//Shaman cannot use

it_shadowwalker = 1;//Shadowwalker cannot use

 

Basic Attack: Bow.

Damage Type - Effect: Missile - Physical.

 

If you comment out the last two lines:

//it_shaman = 1;

//it_shadowwalker = 1;

 

Equip Shaman Jenell with this weapon:

Basic Attack: Javelin. Damage Type - Effect is the same.

 

Equip SW Shima with this weapon:

Basic Attack: Razordisk. Damage Typ - Effects is the same.

 

The Basic Attacks are all Missile weapons, but it's not just the name that is changing - the abilities and damage - effect types of the class also change, and the sound effect when the weapon is used.

 

Another example, where Damage Effects change:

Apprentice Rod

begindefineitem 110;

it_name = "Apprentice Rod";

it_variety = 3;//1-handed weapon

it_ability = 60;//Firebolt

it_blademaster = 1;//cannot use

it_shadowwalker = 1;//cannot use

 

When equipped by Sorceress:

Basic Attack: Firebolt

Damage Type: Magical Missile - Fire

 

When equipped by Shaman:

Basic Attack: Spirit Claw

Damage Type: Magical Missile - Energy

 

In this case, both Basic Attack and Damage Effect are changed.

@Critical Infinity (your alias lends itself to numerous anagrams and interpretations) smile

 

If the Basic Attack is not hard-coded, what is the criteria to apply these, other than the class of the character equipping it? For Basic Attack and Damage type, it seems to be that way. For Damage Effects, it seems to be related to the skill-tree of the character's class.

 

I've been experimenting with the skills and abilities, trying to nail down some definitions/descriptions.

 

Some abilities are linked to specific class skills, i.e.

7 | Healing Touch

ab_skill_ability_linked_to = 47;//Healing Touch

9 Healing Chant

ab_skill_ability_linked_to = 52;//Healing Chant

 

These are linked to ability types but I'm still guessing at what some of the ab_abil_type(s) do.

5 Heal Self

ab_abil_type = 21;//Self Heals/Blesses?

6 Heal Ally

ab_abil_type = 10;//Ally-Group Heals/Blesses?

 

Ah well, I don't have a lot of time available for this right now, but I'll pursue it some more in a few days. I'd like to accurately describe all the new Avadon script elements, as a reference for anyone wanting to delve deeper.

 

Usually I don't have a problem working out what these scripts mean - but there are a number of similar and seeming related elements that are still opaque to me. I might compile the obvious ones first, including those that are present in both Avadon and AvernumScript.

 

My current problem set:

Opaque:

ab_abil_type [null-3] = num;//Listed, but not all clear.

ab_node_type [0-4] = [num];//as above.

ab_when_use = [0-16];//as above.

ab_node_percent_per_level = [num: ?];

ab_node_prob_per_train_level = [num: ?];

ab_node_probability = [num: ?];

ab_when_use = [num: ?];

 

Obvious - but not clear how they are applied by game engine:

ab_node_base_amount = [num];

ab_node_amount_per_level = [num];

ab_node_effect_range = [num];

ab_node_sound = [num: sound];

ab_node_hold_abil = [num: 1 = yes];

ab_node_min_training = [num: level to advance];

ab_skill_ability_linked_to = [num: class skill];

ab_name = [text];

ab_uses_weapon = [num: 1 = yes];

ab_ability_sound = [num: sound];

ab_base_cooldown = [num: turns to wait];

ab_fatigue_cost = [num: reduction to vitality];

ab_range = [num: radius of effect];

 

Known:

it_variety = [1-21];//Posted above.

it_ability = [5-253];//Posted above.

 

 

Any insight would be appreciated!

 

Cheers!
