Hooray, Iffy! Glad to hear it... we had wondered where you went after Muffins was completed.

Sorry, Dikiyoba. Didn't see your post in time. I'll try and figure out what's in the bag before we set out, though... I'm not trying to have a bag o' plot devices, after all. If there's nothing in particular anyone can think of wanting/needing, then it's cool.

I'm personally fine with waiting for Azuma and/or Excalibur to meet up with the group, as long as they're still in for the long haul (or at least the medium haul). The more people we have set out, the better.

Lego, you're silly. 'Cause it's fun, and because we have a good idea of when to knock it off.

I just meant to emphasize that your character's just a little apathetic about things that aren't drinking and wenching, Azuma. Which is pretty much everything in this RP. :P

Sorry about the delay, but I've posted. Feel free to invent a clockwork-y junk item from Demarkus's collection, if it suits your needs. Otherwise, I'll just think up a list myself.

Are Demarkus, Al, and Michael the only people in the 'main' party?

EDIT: Jeran, have you been watching Dr. Who or something?

Demarkus awoke with a start as a ray of sunlight burst into the temple. He hadn't slept well at all.

The meeting had been... well, disappointing. Most of the villagers in attendance had simply stood silent and listened to Kelleth's proposal. One man who kept inexplicably sighing throughout the meeting had left early, and Demarkus had written him off as a coward. The only other volunteers were a man who looked like an alchemist (judging from the singed robes), and the midget boy, Michael (Demarkus wondered where that old windbag Magero had gone).

He could still see the pained look of disappointment on Kelleth's face when he said for the volunteers (and anyone else who changed their minds overnight) to meet at the obelisk outside the temple. Honestly, Demarkus couldn't blame him. This was not an encouraging sign... he gathered up his belongings and made his way outside, where the others were waiting.

-----

The obelisk, a solid piece of marble eight feet tall, was the only real monument in Emerald Cliff. It had been quarried in some ungodly-faraway place and dragged out to the desert when the town had first been founded. Some thought it was a gift from an ancient Ta-Shanti king, but nobody knew for sure anymore. It had been struck by lightning during the storms of the past few days, and still bore black scorch-marks.

Demarkus tossed his sack onto the ground by the obelisk, and exchanged pleasantries with the alchemist (he had been right) and Michael.

"Have any others shown yet?" Demarkus asked. The others shook their heads.

"It's alright, I'm sure we'll manage," Al said, perhaps a bit more cheerfully than necessary. Michael gestured to the sack, which bulged comically on the dusty ground.

"What's in the bag?"

Demarkus grinned, and with a flourish, upturned the sack and emptied the contents onto the ground. "This is my livelihood. And with any luck, a few things that we will find useful."

He carefully picked up a strange assemblage of metal strips and wood, and pointed it at a nearby tree. A sharp twang followed, and a twisted piece of metal had buried itself in the tree's trunk. As he retrieved the missile, he explained, "This is my finest work. A deadly accurate crossbow pieced together from the detritus of desert ruins."

As he came back to his pile, Al pointed at something small and shiny poking out from under a few loose wooden splints, asking what it was.

"That is... well, I've never seen that before. Might've picked it up somewhere and forgotten, but it's nothing I can remember," he said, picking it up. It was a delicately-wrought gold flower, hung on a silver chain. Offhand, Demarkus mentally priced it at roughly three times the worth of everything else he'd had in the bag. "Strange."

Methinks Excalibur just saw the title, and thought it was postworthy. Honestly, this doesn't seem that controversial. I just hope everything goes smoothly for him.

Well, then you have to waste something like ten terrain slots on a set of 'fake' walls, as Dahak said. 'Fake', in that the engine doesn't draw them quite properly. But you just have to do what Fractal has done, making sure that you replace all of the appropriate traits. There are several values for which icons/sheets are used for cutaway viewing, and you need to make sure that you fix all of them.

Avernum 1 - Mung demons and crystal goodies. in The Avernum Trilogy

One thing that's helped me deal with mung demons and other dumbfounding creatures is to give my fighter and my rogue one or two points in Priest/Mage Spells. Not only does it make someone else cast Light every once and a while, but it might get the mung demons to aim at them instead of your primary spellcasters.

(Also, it's kinda nice to have a fighter who can bless himself)

The default is perfectly usable, yes. And if this is your first time through the game, it might actually be easier than trying to figure out how to maximize your skill point usage at the very beginning.
