Let me see if I've got this straight: y'all are arguing about historical trends in average life expectancy with someone whose beliefs include that Jonah survived inside the belly of a big fish, that Noah lived to the age of 950, and that Jesus came back from the dead after crucifixion?

Edit: Essentially, Alo beat me to it.

You don't have enough mechanics skill / tool use. Try equipping tinker's gloves if you've got them. If you can't switch off the machine, you'll just have to suffer more golem attacks. They aren't so tough.

Don't fully understand the question...

The training room for skills in Fort Emergence is in the North East Corner.

If you need to train in the first 7 priest spells, try Pergies (west of Krizsan). If you need to train in the first 7 mage spells, try the Inn of Blades (north-east of Krizsan). You may find the Valorim map useful.

What's with all the island questions today?

For fun! There are also inaccessible rooms in quite a few places. Deal with it.

In fact this particular island is accessible. Try approaching from another direction.

Avernum 5, June Update in Avernum 4
Agent
Member # 2759

Oh. Well that is possible. However, I didn't think Jeff intended to announce a change to the GF4 AP system. I must have read it as

quote:

You can attack if you have any points left. Attacking takes away up to 9 action points. So if haste and speed items give you 10 or more AP, you can attack twice in a turn.
(bold bits added to show my interpretation)

which is consistent with GF4. Jeff previously said somewhere that A5 would use the same AP system as GF4.

Edit: It was the March 07 update.

Rubbish. In Geneforge 4, unhasted with 8AP, you only get one attack.

Edit: Or is it possible this is yet another difference between the Windows/Macintosh versions?

So that would be the same as Geneforge 4, then.

Requests for Avernum 5:

* Don't put the quicksave and quickload keys right next to each other, it's too easy to hit the wrong one

* When closing dialogue windows, be consistent whether you need to hit "1 - OK" (where that is the only option) or a checkmark button at bottom right

Gah, what would really save me time is if QuickLoad wasn't right next to QuickSave. The number of times I must have had to play the same fight twice because I hit load instead of save...

Well done Dikiyoba, now it makes sense. TJC Shaper has erroneously attributed significance to Riibu's accidental omission of no. 10, when labelling her map.

I seem to remember Morrowind also had a fatigue system, where you got tired from fighting and had to go rest up (separate from health).
