exile or avernum? in The Exile Trilogy
Shock Trooper

I like how Avernum makes you actually go through the plot in some kind of order–you can't say certain things until your characters know to say them. (I had fun going around and saying "divulge" before I'd registered Exile. ^_^)

Kelner snorts and says, "Pretty minor Triad if you ask me."

Different starting position? Hmm, maybe we'll get to start out at Fort Remote–that's pretty far away from previous ones! :D

I've tried opening the file up from both the CD and the version I downloaded and subsequently registered…but if I don't need it to beat the game, then I guess it's not that big a deal.

(Edit: I tried ending combat before the offending character moved, and it worked! ^_^)

The Avernum Annotated Maps are always worth a try, too–in certain areas, there's almost nothing different between the two games.

Oh! I'll try that…I think I've been going straight up from the door every time. XD So I need to be somewhere else when I reach that horizontal–*hops off to try it* Thanks, guys!

Edit: …Okay, no. The last couple times I've tried it, it's seemed like whenever character #6 is done moving, the thing crashes. I've done it from several starting spaces. ><

I posted about this same problem a really long time ago, shortly after I registered the Exile trilogy (about a year ago). Right after registering, I started playing Exile 2 and everything worked fine…until some point in the fourth chapter. When the Empire guys show up in the Almaria storeroom, my game would spontaneously quit at some point during that battle. I tried opening the file with the copy of Exile 2 on my computer (Mac OS X, by the way) and the one on the CD–same result. I figured (corroborated by others' advice here) that my save file was corrupted. I recently started over again and seem to be having the same problem. So apparently it's not the file. What should I do?

Relative ages? in The Avernum Trilogy
Shock Trooper
Member # 5969

I'm interested in how old all the salient mages (Erika, Solberg, Patrick, &c) are in relation to each other, i.e. are any of them close enough in age to have gone to school together or anything? (Is this even known in the canon?) Just curious… and for a scenario I'm thinking of writing if I ever get BoX…

There's also the "what kind of reward would there be?" vs. "can I have my reward now?" thing, which would require two keywords and thus be confusing.

I don't mean to say they were bad, but it was not the same feeling like playing any of the Exile games (I have played At the Gallows as well).
I have had this feeling, too, and I've been trying for the past two years to pin down exactly why.

Well, no matter how good a fanfic is, there's nothing like the canon. That's how I think of it.

I collect e-mails. I save nearly everything I get (I usually delete college e-mails on sight =D). I can never bear to delete e-mails from my friends, because, well, I have so few friends. XD It makes me feel cool to have e-mails from my friends in my inbox.

A little note in General
Shock Trooper
Member # 5969

"If thou art foolish, thou art happy!
If thou art happy, thou hast a lot of money!"

Therefore, if you're foolish, you have a lot of money, but not the other way around. The truth value of the converse isn't always the same as that of the original statement. (If the conditionals are true, however, if you don't have a lot of money, you're not foolish.) A logically equivalent pair of statements:

If you're a cat, you're a mammal.
If you're a mammal, you're a vertebrate.

Therefore, if you're a cat, you're a vertebrate. Just plain old being a vertebrate wouldn't make you a cat. XD

Sorry. Couldn't resist talking about logic. ^_^ Welcome to the forum!

FYT. :P The Exile games are quite old (the first one is from 1994, I believe), but I personally find this gives them a certain charm. It depends on your aesthetics.

Exile 1? Final Gauntlet; Chasm? in The Exile Trilogy

I'd definitely remember that chasm, LOL. The one that was long and skinny and went all the way across the world. This one was irregular-shaped, in the corner of a cave and I think there was a white dot, or a building, or both, behind it. A lair of basilisks sounds good. Now I really need to find it so that I can train there… killing Hawthorne is the last thing I have to do, and my party gets killed in about a minute every time. XD

*won't touch anything that's not Nintendo with a ten-foot pole*
That new Wii thing just sounds crazy. It sounds like some kind of gateway to Nintendo crossing over to, like, virtual reality or something, from what I've heard about it (translation: my little brother quoting "Nintendo Power" magazine at me :D ).

Yeah, initially I was thinking bright purple and dark brown (since I think it says "muddy brown colour" in the description). XD

(He replied before I made the second edit. I just put the second question in the same thread because, well, two threads for the price of one. ^_^) So, the second question still stands: am I crazy or did I see something interesting?

It's strange that it's left to right. I mean, how is brown lighter than purple?
