—Alorael, who doesn't think Solberg's quote comes from any game. Read it carefully. The choice is either both living or both dying/disappearing. What kind of choice is that, and what is Solberg supposed to be implying?[/QB]
My sig is not a quote (persay), but I got some of the context from Solberg in A4! ;) When you ask him to teach you spells, he looks at his withered hands and thinks about what he has done to himself. :( Since I have taken it upon myself to be Solberg these last 5 years, I have added some of my own personality into this role! :D
I appologize for leading anyone astray and I'll try to compose myself in future conversations. (And now for my trademark cool symbols!) :cool:

I remember when I first found Exile 1 and 2 on a Galaxy of Games CD. I did everything I possibly could in those demos. By the time I paid for the games, I was so high level the other half of the games went by quick. :cool:

How to get out of the Giant Lands in Avernum 4

The blue dot exit is the return trip from Nodicaus' little kingdom of the undead,

The secret tunnel north of Bargha should be usable, but the doors tend to close themselves and sometimes there are new monsters in it. The only other way out of the Giant Lands is using the tunnel to the north of the pink mark going across the northern river and through lots of monster encounters going west and then south before reaching a pylon.

All those doors shouldn't be a problem if you have the key! And using that tunnel you speak of is sure one heck of a long way out of the way, isn't it? :cool:

I appologize for being 'inconsistent'. To be truthfull, you are all reading too much into this! Jeff clearly got mixed up in the story. This is hardly the first instance of inconsistancies in the storyline. I was only trying to spice it up a little. If the truth is what you really want, well there it is! :cool:

Alorael is right! Erika's claim that she "created" the fungus light is false. The Vahnatai created the fungus, she just made more for our caves! Now mind you that this was a huge feat. It took Rentar-Ihrno and the Council to create the original fungus. I hope that this helps clear the confusion! :cool:

Adding on to what the others have said, but saying it my own way. If you do feel the need to adjust some of the stats within the files, it's imperative that you know exactly what you are doing or you will royaly screw up your game play. :cool:

Erika, even though the youngest, was what you might call a 'child prodigy'. Her power surpassed ours and was pretty close to Garzahds. Hope that you find this helpfull. :cool:

You have to be told to get the crystal box that is north of Fort Emerald.

I would wait until I have rescued Ghall-Ihrno before retrieving the box. Don't say I didn't warn you. ;) :eek: :cool:

To make it short...not really. ...But... there are some side quests that are undoable without certain people, but the game is still beatable. If it really bothers you though, just open a previous save file. :cool:

How did A4 do? in Avernum 4
Shock Trooper

I would like to put my two cents in, if you don't mind.

I love every game Jeff has made. Sure they have points of haziness, but they are all great games. You don't like these graphics that the Avernum's had, you should see the old, old Exile graphics when the games were just coming out. And sound quality, forget it! But the point I'm trying to make is even though things weren't great, the games were still and always will be awsome. ;) :cool:

I'm just wondering if there's a place where someone might have made a copy of the underground maps of Avernum. It would've been nice if they added those maps somewhere, since a good deal of the early game is underground! :cool:

Avernum V ideas in Avernum 4
Shock Trooper

I haven't read many of these posts, so if I happen to repeat something I appologize.

Four years after Rentar-Ihrno is banished, Empress Prazac is murdered by a group called 'The Loyalists'. Instead of retalliation, most of the Empire cheers, because of her dealings with Avernum. The Empire/Avernum war is again in full swing. Most of Valorim takes the side of Avernum, though.
At the same time, Rentar-Ihrno has teamed up with Avernum's worst enemy, Grah-Hoth. Monster plagues, shades, you name it it's back. They are out for blood and are holding nothing back.
With all of this going on, Is this the end of the World?

I know it's a bit over the top, but I think it sounds good! :cool:
