Funnist party in Avernum 4
Warrior
Member # 6218
Profile #0
With games that involve character generation like Avernum, I usually end up playing the first 20mins 2-3 times becuase i realise that i want to use a different party.
Not becuase i decide that this party isnt good enough but to get a party that i think would be more interesting and often more realistic for the sake of role-playing.

My party now:
Human tank (Melee and a bit of bows) Elite warrior, thick skin
Slith priest tank (Pole arms/prist spells) pure spirit
Neph mage/archer with fast on feet/natural mage
human mage/theif with nimble/ natural mage

To me this sounds like the perfect party. I understand that all people have their own preferences, but what characters do you use and why?

Selling in The Avernum Trilogy

At the stage of the game that you are there is probably little need for money anyway, you will figure out which things you can sell for more eventually. There is usually a place in every town to sell everything (make sure your items are identified (Hebeker in fort emergence does it)).

Good luck playing A3, its great!!!!!!!!!

WOW, A3 endgame nightmare....... in The Avernum Trilogy

actually no, i have not missed any.
south west there are 2
south east there are 3
north west there are 2
north east there are 3
I talked to Bon-ithrino (whatever his name is)
I looked into all of those crystal souls until the last one gives you information about Rento's plans.

Are there any other things that i could have stuffed up??
I dont really want to have to start the game over.........
maybe this is a blessing in disguise, i can try a different party formation........

I have exited the keep and re-entered and done it all again but no luck. Is it possible that my file is somehow corrupted?
Also Erika did not appear and she was sopossed to?
is that a sign that the file may be corrupted?

I have just spent around an hour and a half doing the endgame of A3, i am completely stuck, i was so sad, in A1/2/3 up until this point i used no walkthroughs. But when i checked the walkthru i am still stuck.

I killed everything in the keep, activated all of the buttons in all 4 level2 areas, but when i go the the pedestool it just says blah blah blah the beams only tripled in intensity (when it needs to quadriple) back to square one.

Also i am not sure why Erika did not turn up, the walkthough said that she should of (i have her amulet)...

I am stumped, any ideas.................

I use Bittorent, its great for downloading anime.
You just have to find the right things to download.
Pirating music is a problem on any file-sharing program, just remember that around 95% of artists consider music sharing a blessing.

Try it, if you like it buy it, if you dont then delete it.
Support the artists........

Music would be cool, but it would have to be good. It would be pretty hard to get music that would suit this game in midi form, it would just suck i think.

It would need suble-epic style music similiar to games like Warcraft3 of Diablo2, which would be more MB than the entire game so i dont think that it will ever happen, well thats what i think anyway.

i just hope it's turn-based but i would definatly prefer to play A4 with the avernum engine, or a new engine but not a geneforge-based engine.

Read some of the past pages this thread. Also read this interview, it will basically give all the answers that we are allowed to know atm.

I was wondering, can you ever get into that army camp in A3?

if you can, how many fights do you have to do before you get it?

These are my two favorite jokes.....Get ready.......

Why did the Scarecrow get a Phd???????
(drumroll)
Because he was outstanding in his field!!!!

A nuetron walks into a bar and asks for a beer
"How much is that" the Nuetron asks
"For you, no charge" replies the Bartender

Possible changes that i think would be cool

priest:
Mass battle rage (maybe level 15 or so)
Bring back symbiosis
bring back would/as well as balance smite (it was so bad before)

Mage:
wall of force/ice/etc (it seems strage having cloud of blades as the only AoE spell in the game, give mage one, i liked the wall spells in exile.
Bring back sleep cloud/paralysis
Bring back stealth
bring back envenom
bring back scary moster

Abilities that could be brought in (i.e. taught by a soul crystal):
A spell like create illusions (splits you up into 2/3/4 clones, but only the real one can do damage. (at higher levels your clones can take a bit more damage)
Surround someone in flames, able to be cast on your PCs or on enemies, so whoever is next to them gets damaged. Something like imolation in Warcraft3
There are heaps that would be used. I hope that there is more of a focus on these as they kinda sucked in A1/2/3

Also instead of just melee or pole weapons, maybe there could be a an option to be like those crazy fighting monks, just punch.
If enough points in this you might get additional AP or paralysis touch. Or AoE to adjacent squares, a spinning tornado kick or something, that would be AWESOME. Draw back no armour or spells or something to balance. Maybe you have you enter a cult like the Anama to be able to do these things.

Anyone else have anything that they would have liked to see or see in future games?

Go down to south east Valorium and do the undead missions. And then get lots of money for the courier jobs there (buy spells and magery from Erika for your casters). Make sure that you do the Slith mission from Golddale, the Ursagi quest. These get very boring if you come back to it later.
The game is made so you basically never have to level up as long as you follow the game in a logical order.

oooopsssss ignore magery (Avernum)

just read the interview, sounds cool.
I was hoping that instead of 20 spells for each there was going to be 30 or something.
I also hope that there is more focus on the skills that you cant train in, and also abilities that dont necessarily need to be taught by a soul crystal. Maybe bought, or found in books.

The world where there is no "outdoors" and the world just continues sounds interesting... i think i am gonna have to see how Jeff does this

So who's looking forward to seeing it (again, probably.)

(I voted for the first.)

I might see it, but it would be for the first time. I prefer DVD over cinema.

why????? :confused:

Weird island in The Avernum Trilogy

has anyone noticed that island off the south-west coast of the Isle of Bigail (south of that Anama temple that got destroyed) that has Gremlins running around it?
The weird thing is that it seems impossible to get to, the Orb of thralni always ends on move short.

Has anyone been there?
