Bug in Roman quest in Nethergate
Apprentice
Member # 6486

Please learn to read carefully ! I said :

"Even she's doesn't wear anything, and the encumbrance is O".

Armor use is 6 !

There isn't any relation because another druid can cast spells as darts of ice, with encumbrance 4 and armor use 0 !

Rhian was a NPC we met in Vanarium and has joined the team after a proposal to come with us.

IT IS A BUG !

Hi,

There is a big bug with Rhian (anywhere, anytime) :

Even she's doesn't wear anything, and the encumbrance is O, and she has a high level armor use, there is always the same message alert when trying to cast some spells (as darts ice) :

"Cast spell : You can't cast any spell above level 5 while wearing encumbering armor."

And because she is the only one high level druid, it's quite difficult to play, you know !

New scenarii on standby : release date ? in Blades of Avernum
Apprentice
Member # 6486

Please who knows how many scenarii are in beta-test at this time, and when they have to be released ?

It could be a nice idee to list them, with some informations as party level, possible release date, and a short presentation.

Some people are working hard for entertaining BOA fans, thanks a lot.

On the other hand, you may not necessarily want a level 214 party to gain experience from going through your scenario.

Such a good idee ! Because the fact we don't gain any experience at all is really frustrating. And with each new scenario, I think we all want to see the party to evoluate. Exactly as all scenarii were parts of a same long storyline, independantly from a scenario's level.

Really, I loved this scenario, thanks again Smoo. Please write another one !

"Scenario" is an italian word, and the universal plural is "scenarii", when you want to speak a correct literary language...

The plural "scenarios" is an allowed facility of language, but it is not true literary plural. Another example: media /medias instead of medium (singular) /media (plural)...

No, I think this is just BoA being weird. I just did a test: I took a level 100 party and gave it 5 experience from a level 5 source — that is, award_party_xp(5,5). It gained 0 actual experience, despite printing the normal "You all gain experience. (5)" line.
I tried to use my party with some other low level scenarii I didn't played before, and this bug didn't happend, never.

I don't think so. As an example, if I gain 50 or 500 experience points, even it doesn't change the level, that must be entered nevertheless.

I mean, it's a real bug, independantly from the party level !

1) Because I've played almost all the other BOA scenarii before this one, my party is level 66.
Fortunately, it's strong enough for not suffering from the impossibility to improve the characters' statistics.

2) It never happened before.

3) No I haven't send any private message to Smoo,just wrote here. It seemed to me obvious that he had to come and look for bug reports and critics.

4) No, I'm playing on a Mac.

I really mean I never gained any skill or experience point or level from the beginning of the scenario.

When I completed a mission, I can the see in the text area that I'm rewarded with xx points (and/or money or any item but it's ok with that), but when I look at the stat screen, nothing changed except the number of coins.

Hi. The scenario is brilliant, but there are still some bugs.

The most important one is that the experience gained during the game is never entered. The experience points, the level and the skill points never change.
It’s like we’ve never played, except for pleasure, what is really important, but not enough :-)

Two other bugs are noticed with the missions : freeing the slaves and killing the Nephilim before being ordered to. Indeed, in that case, when you're asking to do these missions you've already completed, and talk again with the people who asked for, nothing happens. You have to come back to the places where the mission were completed, even you don't have anything else to do in, and then come back again to be rewarded and thanked.

Don't you have anything more intelligent to say, mister-no-name ? What's the trouble with you ?

Well, anyway I've ended the scenario, just living the valley after saying I've found the missing customer. And that's all, quite frustrating.

Well, I've found a hint on that board, and came back into the trogs building to recover my skills.

Anyway, now I've killed the Nephilims, I've killed the Vahnatai, I have the two scrolls translated, I have the 3 mithral bars, but I still can't find the missing customer, and Mayor Achtaiper's always saying : "The nephilim problem has disappeared,but rumors have spread that a vahnatai is responsible...".
But now, what have I to do to end the scenario ? I've visited everything again but nothing else happened.

Exactly,the skills are gone away , not only at the end of the fight, but juste when the party is entering the combat mode against the Troglodytes.

I tried another thing :going to see the Trogs at the beginning of the scenario, not at the end. This time I don't see any error message, but the skills are still gone away.

Hi. I just tried to play "Nephilim Mystery", but I can't finish the scenario and get the third mithral bar.
Indeed, when I went to kill the Troglodytes, and did it, I had the bad surprise to see all my skills gone ! The party is like a beginner one.
More : no mithral bar at the horizon !
So what ?
When I come into combat mode against the Troglodytes, I have this error code :
"Error: eliminate_outdoor_enc should only be used outdoors."
Thanks to help.

Hi. Is there another way but being killed by Spiegelbrecher at the end of Canopy ? Because an ending like that is merely stupid. A scenario is usually made to be win, as you know ! Or there isn't any interest to play it...

Here is your hints for the 2nd puzzle : In the second puzzle, move the sw/ne mirror to (35,30) to block the beam so that you can pass. Now grab the se/nw mirror that's a bit farther north and move it to (38,20). Move the sw/ne mirror to (36,25). Now comes the tricky part. You have to get the first mirror one space east, to (36,30). Walking directly north into it seems to get it off the wall effectively. Once you've positioned it properly, you've solved the second puzzle. Leave through the door and head north to the third puzzle.

But have a look to the puzzle !!! The only available mirror to block the beam is NOT a sw/ne mirror but a SE/NW one (just left when you come into the room) ! And when I blocked the beam and continued the puzzle following your explanations, the only thing I could see is that nothing happened ! absolutely nothing. Moving the 2 other mirrors with your coordinates didn't make any difference. So, I'm sorry but maybe there's something wrong with these hints...

Uh, there's more to the hint file than the paragraphs which are asterisked. Here's the relevant section of the walkthrough:

Redirect the alternating beam in the halls west again. Move the mirror that you used to power the first puzzle west to (8,35). Now you should be able to pass through the doors.
Basically, you need to redirect the alternating beam in the halls to hit the southern-most source.

That's exactly what I did, after the 3 puzzles, and it powered the 4th pylon. So, the powered pylons are from right to left : 1-2-4. But what about the 3rd one ? Did I miss something somewhere ? That's what I don't understand !
I'm really sorry, but where is the interest to build something so complicated that it's impossible to solve without hints and explanations step by step ? Your scenario is really great, but we loose so much time that it becomes a little boring and stressing...
I like enigmas and puzzles, and I love the parts in a scenario, where we have to think rather than to fight, but too much is too much...

Well, okay. Someone (Boots, I think) alerted me to an easier way to do this puzzle than what I have in the walkthrough, so let's see if I can give you that. Go to the library in the southeast and pull the lever at (46,43). then pull it back again. Go back to the room and place the only available mirror at (30,6). Go back to the library and pull the lever one more time.I think that works, at least.
Well, thanks a lot, I could powered 3 of the 4 pylons near the 3 doors, but I don't figure how to power the 4th one and open the doors. Please can you help ? Nothing about it in the hint file. You just said to be creative :-)

Thanks a lot, I solved 2 of the 3 puzzles, but definitely I don't figure what to do with the third one.
I strictly followed the hints, and having a Mac, I could see the party location as well, that was pretty useful :-) . Anyway, I really don't understand how to move the last mirror in that room (the one to put to 34,9, instead of another one impossible to move anywhere else).
I also tried the other way with the library but it doesn't seem to work.
Please could you tell me what to do, step by step ? I'll be very grateful. Thank you.

Hi everybody,

I'm totally stuck with the mirror puzzle. Too much complicated. Is there any snapshot somewhere, to see exactly what to do ?
Could somebody take some screen captures and send them to me ? It would be VERY VERY nice.

Thanks so much in advance.
