I have no idea how to prove that Egeland is a thief. Is this going to become obvious later, or is there something I'm missing? Or do I just not have enough leadership?

You need to find R-I's first hideout before you can complete that quest. The demon in the ToM is nothing compared to the vahnatai trap in Fort Remote.
You seem to be thinking of Correlea's "kill a shade" quest, which is different from the Shade Experiment quest. Shade Experiment just requires you to attack the shade in Blosk and then run away. I believe you can receive and complete this quest as soon as you go to the Castle.

A lil dilemma... in Avernum 4

I will join the unanimous consensus. I like Avernum 4, but I think Avernum 2 is Jeff's masterpiece (though I haven't played Nethergate).

Moral dilemmas in Avernum 4

Another interesting moral dilemma is the two mines south of Dharmon, Cicero's and Krytos's mines. In both of them, you have to kill the miners in order to get their treasure. If you kill Cicero and his friends, you discover that were justified in doing this, because they were bandits who murdered the people who had been using the mine before. But if you kill Krytos, there is no similar revelation; he and his friends were just ordinary miners.

By putting these two encounters in the same area, Jeff implies that if you kill Krytos, then you're committing exactly the same crime Cicero committed, and therefore you're just as bad as him. It's a pretty effective lesson.

(Of course, right after I finished this area, I went and killed Andreas so I could take his crystals, so apparently I didn't learn anything. But Andreas was being rude to me, so that made me feel slightly less guilty.)

No, you're not the only one. "Easy civilian kills"? Whatever happened to role playing?

Which are the six major artifacts?
Demonslayer, Crystal Aegis, Infernal Shroud, Emerald Plate, Lightning Girdle, and I think the last one is the Avenger's Ring but I'm not 100% sure. There is a list of them and how to get them in the hint book but I don't have it with me right now.

Thanks for the list. I was thinking the Jade Halberd would be one of them.

It's interesting that, unlike in Avernum 3, some of the artifacts are available quite early in the game.

Ghall-Ihrno's comfort [SPOILERS] in Avernum 4

According to the walkthrough, there is a quest called "Ghall-Ihrno's Comfort." After I rescued Ghall-Ihrno from Almaria, I talked to him at the castle and tried all the conversation options, but I didn't get any quest. Is the quest going to become available later?
