What's the best avernum? in The Avernum Trilogy

Hey, how are y'all doin' today? This is my first post in months. I just want to ask Thlis Avatar why you don't think Avernum 1 has no plot. I do agree it's not as thick as 2 @ 3 or even 4 (which I haven't played yet but just ordered today!), but that doesn't mean it has no plot whatsoever. Any game that has missions and wingame finalies has to have some sort of plot somewhere. Oh and by the way, I voted for Avernum 1 and BoA! :cool:

Just to reply, I have used it a few times. It seems that if your luck is high enough, you can steal the coins from it without people seeing you. Other than that, it has no other purpose I know of. :cool:

I forgot to mention. If you do steal from the pond and are caught, you lose 1 or 2 points of Reputation. Sorry I can't remember, it's been awhile. :( :cool:

I've also hidden my tower behind a rock cropping with a hidden entrance. But please, before you try to enter my tower, be sure and talk to Kelner first. It wastes your time, and I won't open the door for you. :cool:

Hey I take offence to that, I was just gathering my thoughts. I couldn't do that with the thought of a powerfull demon within feet of where I sat. And scared people always wanting to ask how we can get rid of it (sorry Kelner). Thanks to me the demon was destroyed. :cool:

He doesn't thank you for charming him, because he was never meant to be hotile. I can't see why Jeff didn't change him since he was the same in E3 if I remember right. :cool:

Avernum 1.. VERY frustrated... in The Avernum Trilogy
Shock Trooper
Member # 303

There are two such orbs in general, 1-in the ruined fort that Khoth tells you about. 2-in the strange cave. The one in the ruined fort is not the one the scimitar is searching for. The one you're looking for is in the strange cave.
Walk through killing gremlins as you go. When you come to a point to go either right or left, go right. Around the corner along the west wall you'll find a hidden teleporter, use it. Go into the building and kill the Empire soldiers. Before you enter the other room though, search along the northeastern for a hidden room. Touch the rune TWICE. Go through the fort and you'll eventually find the teleporter. When you enter it it'll take you to the cave with the orb. When you smash it, two demons appear so you might wanna prepare first if you're weak unlike me. Go down the corridor and where it bends, search the west wall for hidden entrance, and enter the teleporter. Enter the building and touch the rune Twice again, and take the teleporter and you'll back at the beginning. :cool:

You can get 8 crystals, but you only need 6. :confused: Here are the locations.
1-Island south of Cotra
2-Island SW of Cotra, and east of the Slith Island Fort. Hidden
3-Inside the Slith Island Fort.
4-Hungry drake in caves west of Slith Island Fort.
5-One of the camps when you kill all the sliths at the NE camp you find a crystal.
6-Altar NE of Fort Dranlon (already mentioned)
7-Aranea Cave
8-Chasm Drake's Lair (already mentioned)
There might actually be more or maybe that's it. hope this helps. :cool:

I'm glad to see all this support for Terror's Martyr. I have seen him on here for some time. He may have some colorful moments, but he's helped so many people and contributed a lot to Spiderweb Software.
On a lighter note...I made A4. I asked if I was in there and they said yes. But cheeseball's not there, and they said I'm angry about something. That's all they told me. :cool:

As you all know, I'm a mage of no small skill. To say the least I can't determine whether the Anama are evil or not. I do believe that their beliefs are a bit wierd. To say to not use magic because a few people used it for bad, that's stupid. If they say that why don't they also say 'Don't breathe'. The majority of mages use magic for good. I can even think of a few priests who used their skill for evil. So the Anama's way of thinking is stupid. And what about the Church of Divine Lucre? It's definately not holy, and they're priests. That's all I have to say on that. :cool:

If it's the one southwest of Fort Draco, it's Exile 1. If that's true, it's located at a hut near a lake in the caves across the bridge near Fort Draco, and all the way south. Do not take any west tunnels to another map. I hope that this info helps. :cool:

Synergy67- 'The two fighters and the archer are all sickness prone which leaves them with around +5% level up. The priest is sickness prone and has brittle bones--having no need to be a natural mage.'
That sounds like a lot of work trying to keep them healthy., but I do see what you're doing. :cool:

By Johnno-'I think its possible to drop via the editor, but I'm not 100%. There might be a couple of shops that do that, IIRC, but its been a while since I played it.'

You are absolutely correct Johnny, tell him what he's won, Bob!
Just go to Caius in Formello and he'll help you out. He's a friend of mine, just mention my name. ;) :cool:
