OMG... HELP!!! in The Exile Trilogy

No real reason; I felt like going a little overboard, that's all. And maybe to break the monotony of using a single, lonely smiley.

For more info on how I operate, I invite you to please read my sig.

I usually don't bother looking for keys by this time. If I have a key, I use it; if not, I simply use Unlock Doors at level 3.

I do, but I've never mentioned that fact on these boards. If you like, I'll PM you one or two Populous-related links I found, but I won't do anything more than that on Spiderweb's board, since it might be construed as spamming.

In Exile, combat spells can target empty spaces as well as NPCs, which made invisible enemies much easier to deal with; plus it has two great generic damage spells that I really miss: Wound (L2 priest), and Shockwave (L7 mage). I especially miss Shockwave; when combined with Protection (another L7 mage spell), no Doomguard could last long against my party. :D

For me, the murders happen on day 30, and the Orb of Thralni is stolen on day 60. Kriszan and Shayder start to fall apart on day 30, and Sharimik and Lorelei on day 60.

I don't know when Gale starts to fall apart, nor do I remember offhand when the Tower of Magi disaster occured for me.

Exile 3 robbing the Anama in The Exile Trilogy

The thieves' guild is in Lorelei, and if I remember correctly, Anama rings cost about 2500 gold. I haven't bothered woth Patchar's Plate for a while, but it sells for a good amount of money (I think about 4000 gold).

I think you mean the mined crystals, which are used in one of the mines to create items.

And you should probably just sell the flawed crystals, unless you can use them as missile weapons.

I use four combination prists/mages. I also tend to give them the "Cursed at Birth" and "Completely Inept" character traits, so they level up fast (total 60% xp bonus).

For the most part, I only cheat to heal myself or replenish my essence or spell energy. I know there are cheats to reset your canister count, but I no longer use them, as I can't remember them (I'm also too lazy to look them up).

Despite being a major pack rat, I sell almost everything, except things I think I might need. Here's a list of some of the things I do sell:
Mined, Flawed, Lovely, and Beautiful Crystals
spare Thorn, Venom, and Acid Batons
wands and spore batons that have been fully used up
javelins (too heavy for my playing style)
mundane weapons & armor (after I've upgraded to magical stuff)
copies of most items I already have equipped or stashed away
any item that lowers my PC's stats

(grins evilly) I've had lots of fun with telemarketers over the years. One of my personal favorites is to let them go through their entire spiel; then when I can finally get a word in edgewise, I tell the telemarketer--in French--that I can't speak English. (I came up with this to combat telemarketers who simply refuse to shut up.)
