Ahhh, I see. Thanks for clearing that up (as best it could be).

Ok, finished game as Romans. Having played as both Celts & Romans, though, I never figured out what to do w/ the special item "puzzle box". Did this do anything for anyone??

I think I can finish the game as Romans just fine w/out completing certain quests that I--not a Roman, so this is metathinking I guess--find morally repulsive. I don't have a problem killing things that attack me on sight in these games, but walking up to a non-hostile entity...I just can't stomach it. Cool loot is great and all, but I don't have to acquire everything.

In a way it's roleplaying. W/ the selkies, I had earlier saved the poor guy tied up and left to die. No way I'm going to do a 180 and start slaughtering them. It's too close to how I feel about seal hunters in the real world...

Anyway, this is just me. I don't mean to sound preachy or tell anyone else how they should play the game.

Ok, working for the 3 Crones as the Romans, I didn't mind stealing the goblet from the Temple of Brigantia; didn't mind killing the Widow Queen; but didn't feel great about killing the Rose Lady. And I'm not sure I can stomach killing the Bazaar Master either.

But I'm definitely not ok w/ killing Sleek for his pelt for the witches of Hagfen. I just can't do it. I started to try it out, though, and wondered just what game effect his "mumbled curse" would have had. If anyone knows?

You can't get in as Celts, period.

As Romans it helps to pray at the altar on the upper level to get permission to get past the wards. You still need rune reading of 14 to find out what is hidden in the northern crypt area of this hidden area.

Thanks, I got it. Somehow I missed the altar room on this playthrough...

As it turns out, the Rune Shield is broken, as is the Rune Reading given by the Knowledge Charm. I have notified Jeff, who will be releasing a patch to fix a few bugs, and hopefully, this will be fixed too.

Thanks for the scoop. I appreciate it.

My Roman "druid" has a 21 Rune Reading. When I equipped him w/ the Runeshield (+2 R.R.), nothing changed. Is there a max Rune Reading? That seems strange. Anyone have any ideas?

I couldn't get into that crypt as either Celts or my current party of Romans! What gives?! Did I need to accept a mission/quest first??

Ok, thanks guys! I'm getting a better handle on how to focus on my Roman skill pts.

One other question: if I decided to get a 5th and/or 6th party member in Vanarium, would they slow down my level increases (i.e., is Exp divided by all available members)? I didn't bother w/ them in the Celt game, but haven't read about people using them for either side, and wondered why.

Ok, finished game as Celts, and now playing as Romans. My ? is: why would one bother to increase the individual weapon skills (melee, spear) when they get the same results from Roman Training? From the description, RT does the same, and gives you missile weapon benefits, and I think ups your resistances, too.

Am I missing something?

The polished breastplate and all plate mail are only wearable by Romans. This is to provide some game balance since Celts are now allowed to wear up to chain mail.

Otherwise the Celts with druid mastery could wander around as spellcasting tanks.

Fair enough, thanks for the info!

Can a Celt ever wear the Polished Breastplate taken from Harun? I have 7 Armor Use but text says it's too bulky for me to use. Is this an item that the game only wants Romans to wear? If so, I'll sell it (sigh). Thanks.

Ok, thank you. Annoying, non-sellable items are going away now...

I have a question about some of the weird Sylak items. The sprite, Poot, in the Faerie Bazaar says she wants them, but she's only bought a few of them. So I'm stuck w/ the one constantly generating trash whereever I walk, which is no longer amusing. Can I get rid of this item safely? Also, the talking skull has now revealed the locations for the 5 special spells, as well as the secret something under Hagfen near the statue. Do I need it any longer? It's become tiresome.
