Fireblast Spell? in Avernum 4
Apprentice
Member # 3347
Profile #0
Does anybody teach the mage spell Fireblast? I have a couple places to come back to once I train twice in the spell and am almost ready to make the journey to Spire and parts beyond. Or does the spell deserve a Divine in front of it like the other spells in the higher order...

Also, how many levels of magery or priestlyness do I need to get to cast all the spells?

Demon Lord Bhorralon missing? in Avernum 4

Thanks everyone,

Even with three good answers I still had to search a bit to find him. I must have walked by that demon 6 or 8 times in my earlier search for him with his red skin and dark clothing mixing in with the flooring...

Demonslayer is nice, aswell.

Demon Lord Bhorralon missing? in Avernum 4
Apprentice
Member # 3347

I've searched the caves and tunnels below Patricks tower several times and cannot find the demon lord anywhere. I thought he was the one with the four pylons, but that wont do. I've killed everything else down there and find no tunnel unexplored on my maps. It seems I fought him in an earlier game, but old Solberg still tells me the quest over and over... I'm getting annoyed by those occasional slimy masses that keep poping up and want to move on with the game, but sure would like to take Demonslayer along for the ride...

Any tips on where to find him?

I've collected a ton of icy geodes but cannot find Maxfield of Metris to claim my reward. Any idea where he may be hanging out at?

Also looking for the Cerebrous Wyrm in the honeycomb... That sucker is in a hole somewhere that I cannot find. Help appreciated.

If you have plenty of coinage do at least the upper level of the monestary as the shaper in the upper rear corner can train you in Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Endurance and Mechanics for 6K each.
So bring your 30,000 coins and party, party, party...

Heavy Stone in Geneforge Series
Apprentice
Member # 3347

14 pages back I found the posts on easter eggs...

Here is what was said at the time...

Lord Nargil wrote on April 30,
"This may not count as an easter egg but in the entrance to darkstone mine I found a stack of 258 or so rocks enhanced with fire resistance"
 
Student of Trinity wrote on May 04,
"Yeah, those rocks are there. Carrying them all did not actually seem to improve my fire resistance any, but I suddenly thought that this might be an overflow effect, and that maybe if I dropped half of them or so, I would suddenly have enormous fire resistance.
Not obviously all that helpful because there isn't so much fire damage in the game, but still."


Since I found these posts I have gone back and searched the Ruined Mine Gates, Darkstone Mine and the Core aswell with no luck.

If indeed this item can enchant, just imagine the implications.

Heavy Stone in Geneforge Series
Apprentice
Member # 3347

I really haven't gone around looking at every stone, but I do look at some of them. Playing the game is what I try to do. It is already tedious enough having to pic up every piece of 1 coin crap to pay for later stuff without going around looking at every rock.

I tried to combine them on the anvil when I first had them/it. That was before I had an understanding of how the forges worked and what could be charmed. Just imagine the joy of collecting 243? rocks together and looking for that next rock to get the carry more weight enhancement.

Does anyone remember the discussion that I am referring to about the heavy stone?

On my first playthrough I found a 246? pound stone, but now on my 5th or 6th game, I have not run accross the heavy stone again. I remember a topic that talked about the stone, but cannot find that again either.

Now that I better understand how the enhancements work, I wonder what the stone does. Has anyone used it yet, and what does it do?

I think I found the stone on the first island? Is that the case and if so, where is it.

It takes a 20 to open the chest and is a good indication that you will be able to open doors for the rest of the game. If you don't get to that 20 then you probably won't have enough living tools to get to goodies on the monestary island and other places. I still have to scramble around trying to find enough as it is. I carry tinkers gloves, infiltrators coat and tinkers bauble and switch to them when I come to hard chests and doors so don't have to spend points all the way to a 20.

Don't forget to get a lot of mechanics skills, you should be able to do the trapped landmine in the boatshop on the first island, before you leave the island...Those living tools run out quickly, but you get points when you use them, if you use a spell to unlock, I never seem to get points.

As an agent I never spend any points on shaping magic and avoid the shaping canisters as well.

Generaly, I spread my points around equally except for luck, mechanics and leadership. I build up my stregnth at start aswell.

I'm doing a strictly moral playthrough this time and steal trowels, both sellable and unsellable, only from the bad side. This way they starve as they have no way to weed their gardens.

Conversly, I dump the extra unsellable ones where they may do the most good. And I never steal them from the good guys.

Servile quests in Fort Wilton in Geneforge Series

I've played through a couple of times and cannot find anyone that will give me the two servile quests listed in the hintbook in Fort Wilton?

Does anyone have any idea who I should contact? The guy in charge of the serviles on the dock is standoffish when I have played both sides. He seems like the logical person, but no go there.

The first time I went to the besieged camp on the Isle of Spears I was able to trade, but I cannot figure out how to trade when I come back. I really need some of those supplies and wonder what happened. Is the guy that traded with me not there any more?

Also wonder if I will get in hot water if I let Resnick fry my mind?

Greetings All...

I go by also aswell, and yes it's in the phone book. I am a co-founder of the Cosmic Ray Deflection Society of North America, Inc. I was a chef for 25 years, went back to school and now do computer graphics, seo and other sorts of webcrap.

Got my first guitar in 57, a cheap sears that would't tune. Saw Hendrix and Janis Joplin twice. Love early grunge, industrial, Beefheart, early Zappa, Yardbirds, Skinny Puppy, Outkast, Rage Against the Machine, Tim Buckley and the good Dr. Eugene Chadbourne among others.

I'm a godless anarchist tending to Green politics if they'd only... I publish comic books, alt papers on an occasional basis.

I have been playing Spiderweb games since their first demo I found on an early copy of MacAddict magazine.
Whenever I get a new game, I come back to the boards usually till my hintbook arrives and then go away again.
Thus I have a low player number and still find myself an apprentice. I've just gotten Geneforge 3, so here I am.
Check bio for a pic of me holding a couple of cosmic ray deflection shields and wearing my cosmic ray headpiece.

My sig? I think someone in the OSS killed the man that invented the computer, cracked the German's code in WWII and could have had us on the internet much earlier if he had not died.

PS The inverted triangle is the secret sign of the cosmic ray deflection society :eek:

A good point Thuryl...
                     
"The point I was trying to make was that compressed air cars have exactly the same problem as hydrogen cars: you need to input energy from another source to make the fuel."

Ford is working on an internal combustion engine that uses fuel cell supplied with electricity generated by the internal combustion engine. What you wind up with is is a car that runs on water, and water is the only exhaust.
So you get a win/win situation.

One advantage to dry fuel cell storage is they don't loose energy in transportation. Over one third of electricity made in power plants is lost due to ineffeciences (sp) With the fuel cell canister systems, you make them at the power plant and carry to where you need the energy.

Please don't let me start a flamewar or anything, but it is somewhat amusing to us Mac gamers who have had to wait for years on games. If I may suggest...

You could go out , buy a Mac mini, plug in your monitor and keyboard and be playing in an hour or two.

Again, please don't let this turn into a flamewar, Spiderwebs games are hard enought without them...

While reading through the 9 pages of previous posts I remember seeing someone saying they found the Skien of Wisdom early on in the game, was it on the docks at Fort Kentig maybe?

The presidents Karma has gone down recently for a number of reasons...

Bad Karma happens when you do things like rip into the free press for mistakes like the Koran in the toilet controversy, but never mention or apologize for the war when no weapons of mass destruction or scuds or chemical/biologicals were found.

And it happens when you talk about the sanctity of life when opposing stem cell research, without mentioning the hundreds of thousands of men, women and children kill in the war in Iraq.

I could go on, but really think I come to these forums for game info, not politics.

Edit...MIstaken, sorry about this post. I put a space in the name of the wrong file so I could put the new one in.
Then got an alert saying should I replace, so I changed the right script, but forgot to take space out of the first file...That'll teach me to cheat...

Original post...
Better watch out on that script.

I was unable to talk to Litalia after I loaded it in the game.

Where is the third icy roamer? in Geneforge Series

I found this in the early posts, but I didnt' get who made the post...

written April 11, 2005 05:49 PM                       
------------------------------------------------------------------------
The three icy roamers are in:
1. The Roamer Marsh, near a nest to the southwest.
2. The Swampy Shore, near a nest east of the alchemy shop.
3. The Methane Swamp, near the clawbug lair.
Each one has a 33% chance of appearing if you haven't already killed it.
"Where our aberrations become your reality."

If you are new to the game the early posts are a hoot. NO ONE knew the answers, no one had finished the game and there was a lot of speculation on what would be...

Thanks ET, both those sites look pretty active and may turn up a link...

Thuryl, Tropico is a wonderful island sim game with about 40 scenarios where you aare the dictator/benevolent overlord/religious fanatic. Like simcity, but a lot more variables. Amazon has one for $7.99.
You have 50 years to build your economy, keep natives happy, fight rebels, attract tourists, most everything you want...

As for the corruption. It has to do something with the btree...I figured it was a good (not corrupting) program, but I haven't had the reoccuring problems since I quit playing and miss it.

As for the problems...rolling gear in grey and blue screens, startups in unix, freezes, crashes, had to wipe hard drive a couple times...Got disc warrior and things are better, but when I was playing game, had to run disc warrior a couple times a week... Those b trees are not any fun to mess with...My clients all threatened to quit me, as I had to reinstall all my programs and setup 'puter several times...What a pain. You should read my logs of discussions with applecare...They were another horror show.

So I'm wondering if other mac users have had the same problems. This is the mucho macho version only, and problems didn't start until 10.3.8. Tropico plays great, but has less features.
