Lord Putidus in Blades of Avernum

I do not seem to be able to get the potions at the beginning of the game. Instead I get a blank box, and then when I hit make potions again I get a notification that I do not have the ingredients. I'm using MAC 10.3.9.

Any suggestions?

Background Music in Blades of Avernum

If I want background music I'll just put a CD on the player. Being a musician also, I'm not crazy about the idea of music being "background." People don't write BOA scenarios to be background to music, do they?

I never found the back entrance to Schwein-whatever. The goblins are there but you have to bushwhack through the forest. I never got to the pub cellar.

I got rid of most of the minor characters by confusing them so that they were on my side. Most fruitful were the priests and mages. Trahison I got with my invulnerable fighter with the flamen-whatever.

What is this whole Teutonic thing in Canopy anyway?

The room is a red herring. You can't get into it, and you can get the symbols you need without getting into it. Definitely a tough game, however. I just beat Trahison last night after more failed attempts than I have ever experienced. But once I figured out the tactics, it wasn't that hard.

I'm stil having trouble finding the symbols also.
1. In the upper right hand corner near the cages is what looks like a control panel that will open a barred door and give me access to a basement area with a rune, but the control panel does not do anything.
2. I blew up the figure and defeated the winged demon, but there's a room behind where he was that I can't get into.

I'm running Mac 10.37 and I had the problem going up the stairs in the beginning also. But after restarting, it worked OK. The combat in this scenario is tough--its like food that is so hot its almost impossible to eat. But we finally have a new scenario--I just replayed Diplomacy I was getting to desperate!

I'm afraid that I can't figure out the mirror thing. There does not appear to be anything to move around. I have explored under the lost City pretty thoroughly but I'm stuck.

Cave of no return bug in Blades of Avernum

I have just defeated the spirits, the first battle in the cave per se, and I go through a wall, down a slight slope and into a room, and then the game freezes. I could e-mail you the save file if you give me the e-mail address.

I'm running Mac 9.2.

The game freezes and I have to force quit when I get to the area down the slope in the cave after having defeated the first peril in the cave, the spirits.

And that's it, right? I mean you get the sister, go back to town, and that's the end of the game?

I found Ashford but not the sister and am still in the cave. There was a previous thread about this but I lost track of it.

Any help out there?

There's also an odd problem that when two monsters are next to one another its hard to target both of them with a spell even if you type in the letters. Often typing "a" targets the creature and typing "b" untargets it, rather than targeting its mate.

Seems extraordinary BTW that the name "spider" wasn't taken until member 4236. Congrats on grabbing the name.

ZKR The Busted Bridge Over the Lava in Blades of Avernum

Yes its in the Dark Maze. Even though I got the unicorn by-pass, I still stumbled around in the local roads of the Maze, wasted time, and now am in danger of losing since I'm in the circular crypt and its day 13. A mess--and when I played the original BOE scenario I had too much time left over so I was determined to delve more into the various dungeons--like I went over every square inch of the giant's cave.

Mildly stuck here. I am best friends with the unicorns having gotten the horn and have been through the giants" lair. So how do I get across this bridge? Do I need to kill pixies to do it? Is nothing sacred from our childhood? They seem impossible to kill.......

scenario criticism in Blades of Avernum
Warrior

I do think that it is a little unfair to compare the somewhat lackluster adventures in BOA with the BOE scenarios done by others. Jeff Vogel is obviously an excellent novel writer--the Exile trilogy is really three novels--but not such a great short story writer. Also remember that his BOA scenarios are taken from his BOE scenarios, and at that time the endless possibilities of the BOE engine were unrealized. And that's his real genius-the creation of the BOE engine that spawned so much creativity among the community.

I trashed mine also and had a heck of a hard time remembering where I left it--in the cave with all the junk where the spiders had lost the stone.
