weevil hint in Nethergate

I was stuck trying to find the 6th key until I read the walkthrough (Schrodinger's and Zeviz's Nethergate Page) where one is supposed to ask Rippel (in the Hollow Hills) about Weevil. How did I miss that clue? Is there someone I have forgotten to speak to?

P.S. I'm doing this prior to the stone skull quest so that I have all keys before entering Goagh-Nar

So.. Tool Use for Celts must be one of the "???".

Interesting.. thanks. Will work in the meantime beefing up those other attributes.

I keep getting blown to bits by traps in the goblin fort and I suspect it's because my Tool Use isn't high enough. I know the Tool Use stat exists (instant help and tip boxes refer to it), but I can't find it listed anywhere when I bring up character info.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

Locked room in castle barracks in Avernum 4

Just finished the game (loved it), but I have a compulsion to leave no stone unturned - or door unlocked!

There's a room in the Castle barracks (second floor, next door to the one with the reward lockers) that I was never able to get into. Was anyone else able to figure that one out?

Thanks much-

I thought it curious too, that for all its hype, its "value" was relatively low (only 1200? And of course, less at trade-in).

No matter though I guess, as cash really isn't an issue by that point in the game..

Thanks everyone! And yes, my oversight - I missed the "Spells/Stats" page... glad to know where it is now.

Sometimes when seeking to learn spells, the "trainer" seems want to charge me for ones I already know. That is, the option exists to pay them to "learn" (rather than just improve) a spell that the character already knows and has been using. At first I paid them (thinking I must be getting something for my money), but later I became skeptical. Anyone else run into this? I can come back with specific examples if that would be helpful.

Related comment.. it would be great to have a counter (like for the other stats) that indicates how much knowledge each character has wrt the different spells. (One could see the effect of and keep track of improvements).
