So, having been a big fan of many of Spiderweb's previous games, I am anxiously awaiting the release of A5. I'm wondering, do you need beta testers (on a mac)? If yes, how do I sign up?

Okay, so I killed the monarch and pretty much everything in Grosch and the surrounding areas. I notice their are these "sealed stone door"s and I am yet to find any way to open them. Can they be opened? any help would be great.

Well I for one am all for snark. That said, if GF4 doesn't eliminate world hunger, I'll be very disappointed.

where is this sleater fellow? in Avernum 4

okay so I am rethinking the inteligence of not buying the tip book. I may purchase it, in spite of these posts I read that it contains errors. In the mean time, I am trying to find this sleater fellow in the honeycomb, since I was told by the priest in Meritis that he could help me with the undead in the tower, which is what I am actually trying to do. So, I have been all through the honeycomb, which is rather large and maze like, and I am yet to find this person. Now there is one place where I haven't been In the Honeycomb (perhaps more, but I know about this one). It's blocked by this group of adventurers that I can't seem to beat, even though I have clear just about everything else. These guys just swarm and pummel me everytime. So My long winded question is two-fold. First, where is this Sleater fellow? Second, if he is behind these adventurer types can anyone provide assistance in how to beat these guys? thanks.

skill level before you get into the Honeycomb in Avernum 4

how high up do you think my guys should be before I wander into the Honeycomb?

I have a tendency to be overly main plot oriented the first time through a game (this is my first party currently) so I ignored the advice of that bridge guy and managed to get the ruins of the tower (though I was only doing a few easy missions in the Honeycomb) before it became apparent that I was highly outgunned in the area. I am currently around level 13 or so across my party (plus or minus) and I am over in that western Fort in the eastern whatever it's called cave. I'm really itching to get rid of this shade thingy and get to the castle but it seems I need to work though just about every city between where I am and there before that can happen.
Any Advice?
(also I have of course been to Ft. Avernum already so the Pylon can move me around which is helpful when I am wondering around in areas with guys that are levels over me.)

Thanks!

Purist ending in Geneforge Series

no it doesn't count. I just finished and I didn't use any canisters, but I got shaped by the beseiged shaper and the drakon for money and the guy in the monestary. Still got the purist ending, so you should be good.
