No, it's just labelled differently, I think. In A3, it's something like "Make Anama forgive you".
Well, what I meant was that in E3 you have to be registered to make the Anama friendly, while in A3 you don't. I don't mean there's an actual abscence of the button.

Mass Santuary is actually a spell from Exile with nearly the same effect, like said before. The only difference is that M. S. from Exile does give you ONLY the "untouchable skin".
So if I understand this right, there's a Santuary/MS spell in the Avernum world as well as Exile? Hmmm. I thought that was dropped.

There is a special button to make the people of Shayder friendly again. This button, however, can only be used when registered. As you are probably using a demo, you can't use the button.
It seems as if that's only in E3.

If Haakais could use that spell, they would cast it about every 3 rounds and so they are completely invulnerable.
I imagine that they'd be no worse than those giant chiefs with invulnerability potions. Those things last forever. At least you can still do some damage through an Arcane Shield.

Once Arcane shield reaches a certain level, it grants invulnerability. So you then wouldn't be able to do some damage through an Arcane Shield.

And at least no NPC ever, ever, EVER cast Sanctuary in A2. That'd have been unpleasant.
I never really understood what Sanctuary and Mass Sanctuary did. Could someone please explain?

Stairs leading down in Kneece in The Avernum Trilogy

I suspect an error; those stairs should only appear after you've visited the Gale Library to start the Patchtar's Plate quest. And once those stairs do appear, you should be able to descend into a dragon's lair.

Maybe some of the other people here should be asking that question... *cough*

Anyway, skribbane is a drug you can take in A/E III. It's a combination of almost all drugs; it induces hallucinations, causes bursts of strength, emotion shifts, is highly addictive, and probably does some other stuff I'm forgetting.

When you defeat the troglodytes, you gain access to a well-protected room in the library of City Hall in Sharimik. There you can learn Dispel Barrier at level 3.

Arcane Shield and Repel Spirit have been almost conclusively proved (If I haven't forgotten) to be non-castable by NPCs. And just because a monster becomes tougher doesn't mean the combat is better.

I can safely say I will not miss you terribly. I'm not even encouraged to say so by your obvious use of reverse psychology. In fact, I find you loathesome and uninspiring.

Oh, and I vote Alorael and Student of Trinity as the ones to hold the reins. Because everyone loves reigns.

Well, to make a game trainer-proof you would have to keep all player's information on a database instead of a save file on their computer.

I'm pretty sure there's a specific button to make the Anama friendly again which is seperate from the generic "make towns friendly" button.

As for the room visible from the upper library, that is the main temple. A dialog special should state so very clearly.

Help! I think I broke my game! in The Exile Trilogy
Agent
Member # 5814
Profile #26
Its not really about the fact if you have registered or not, just what to do about "a broken game," and the only solution i can give for something like that, is try to reload a save-file, and see what happens when you DON'T the same thing as you have done first. Also, without registering, one CAN understand what's going on. maybe don't have a good picture of it, but certainly understanding what'g oing on: walktrough's. I got very curious what happened and read the end of some walkthrough.

First of all, you wouldn't know what you were talking about even by reading a whole walkthrough. If you haven't played that part of the game, your ideas and opinions don't mean much.

I'm assuming nossage, who has enough skill to play a game to the end, can also reload that game. And that didn't solve the problem. You, hopefully, do think so highly of nossage as well.

Lastly, if you knew what the problem was and you were operating under the assumption that nossage was/is capable of loading a save file, you wouldn't have given the answer you gave.
You didn't know he wasn't done asking yet? Why, he asked a question just in the post before your post!

I just rechecked, and guess what: I jumped the gun. I thought fourteen hours had passed; only two had. Sadly, that doesn't change much.

The cooking thing you said is really irrelevant. First if all, i don't say I'm an expert, and second, I thought I really could help. I just try to be helpful, even when i can't really give good advice, I at least try to give good advice, instead of just sayting others' advice isn't usefull. How do i know if you know what we are talking about? Maybe you don't know what's going on? Are you actually registered? I could think of a whole lot of things to ask now.

I haven't tried to give advice on the actual topic, so whether I know what I'm talking about is irrelevant. But just in case it comes up later (I hope it doesn't), I own E3, A3, and various other Spiderweb games.

I wouldn't take your advice on something you weren't good at. I also don't think you should give advice on things you don't have experience with. However, you think people can still give advice without skill. Therefore, it's a matter of debate and not logical conclusion.

Just one other small thing: People, even without knowing what's really going on, still can give advice by just using their brains.

Hmm... E-mail me at: whiterm@es.co.nz... But what brave soul would dare disturb the mighty White through such primitive means? Sadly, it may be our only hope if he will not answer our supplications.

And he even replies to every e-mail he recieves! Hot diggitey! That just sweetens the deal! Some easily influenced dupe... Ahem, I mean some fearless alpha male should take charge and establish themselves as a leader by e-mailing him.

Maybe this is it! The big one! Actual contact with him! Well, actual contact without implants...

Notye but Neyse - Quit pissing and moaning and try saying something useful yourself instead of criticizing other people.
At the time when I had made my very first post in this thread, I had assumed nossage had already been helped. So I wouldn't have to say something useful myself and I would also be able to nitpick about pointless things.

One pointless thing to nitpick about would be posting when you have no clue as to what should be done.

Before Thralni said he hadn't registered, I was willing to believe he had just been trying to be helpful but had not examined his post well. However, now that I know Thralni hasn't registered, I really don't believe there can be any valid reason to talk about things you have no experience with.

I wouldn't call myself an expert at cooking, and that's why I don't tell people how to cook. And if Thralni had no idea how to cook or didn't offer useful advice on how too cook, I would tell him to not offer advise regardless of the thoughtfulness and caring it showed.

I've been playing Fire Emblem (the English version) obsessively. Don't take this the wrong way; it's only an okay game. But I have to beat everything I start, so that'll have been consuming my time for about three weeks once I actually win.

To summarize: Don't worry about your game; reload a save file.

Yes, that's just so totally full of helpful advice on how to fix the problem.
