Avernum 3 Let's Play!

Recommended Posts

Potions are all unnecessary except for those that have effects that cannot be replicated by spells.

Energy Potions/Elixirs and Heroic Brews are possibly necessary, ditto anything that gives an Invulnerability effect.


Tower of Magi gets seized by demons around day 160, you won't see this whole battle unless you advance game time by use of the Character Editor. (Jeff will need to rectify this for the A3 remake.)


Your next Let's Play could be A4. A good idea is the A1 remake, that needs something to explain it to those who played A1.

Coming from A3 I found that A4 felt overly-simplified by comparison. It had the simple Geneforge feel without any of the interest provided by the creations.

Daze is apparently the party's ticket to survival, when it is surrounded by enemies Daze will stop them long enough for the party to survive. This is true for the early stages of AEFTP too.
