So I'm advancing in the game and still have quite a bit to do. I'm playing slowly enough that I might still be playing on Day 160, but I doubt it.

 

So, a question: In all of the previous Avernum games you could finish the game, do all the quests, and have the option to keep playing. Is that the case this time? I'm leaving lots of low-level job board quests and I could go back and wander around and do those, waiting for Day 160. Or I could just put off the endgame by doing those quests, or just by wandering around and sleeping a lot, until I hit day 160. I'd just like to experience ALL of the game, and not miss the Tower of Magi fight.

 

Thanks!

You definitely can do it past Day 160.  I got caught up in the story and completed the game around day 90-100 and then reloaded from a save from shortly before the final battle.  I then wandered around completing all of the minor quests, getting training using crystals, wasting time, etc until Day 160 so that I could do the Day 160 event.  Now I just need to go back to the final battle and the game will be over.

Well I've learned one thing. I'm on Day 125, and I'm finding that many of the job board quests don't appear in my quest list even after I've accepted them. So there's a day limit on those, apparently. However, I've undoubtedly missed so much that I shouldn't have any difficulty stretching things out to Day 160. Am worried about 180, however. Maybe I'll find out if you lose the game then!

I waited until day 199 without doing anything at all, and this is what happened:

 

Spoiler

 

"From below you, in Avernum, your mind is bombarded with images, sent to you mentally by the now triumphant Grah-Hoth. A portal has been opened, and hordes of demons are flowing into Avernum. The portal to the surface has been destroyed.

 

You cannot go help now. Nothing can be done. By the time Avernum can fight off the invasion, there will be little left. Maybe, someday, the few survivors will return to the surface. It will, however, be hard to take much satisfaction in it."

 

Game Over

 

No matter how long you take to do things, you will always be able to finish the game... NOT.

This same thing happened to me and I was confused, but when this happens it means that you failed a job board quest for that town and they are refusing you the quests. If you look carefully, you'll see text to the effect of "This town has still not forgiven you for failing an earlier job board quest", even though it looks like you're accepting the quests.
