Not as if my computers will play GF and I don't like Avernum...
Although it was designed to be better I find the gameplay a little boring... GF is alright...
Anyhow, not relevant...

Next question: What buffs/potions should I use (remembering I'm in the unregistered version here)for taking on Solberg's Tower..

And whoever said that Motrax is easy.. think again.. there's a million and one golems in there, which take a while to kill... they aren't hard, just persistent.

Capture Soul works on ANY creature when you've got maxed out intelligence... A must for any spellcsater really...

6 mages with 20 int can clear out something like the Empire Patrol on the western edge of the unregistered game (there's about 10 empire archers, lots of soldiers, mages and normal archers) in under a single combat turn... they just wipe people up like a sponge wipes up water!

Oh - and is it worth trying to kill the Vahnatai Council? Do they just throw you out of the town, or can you actually kill them? If you're not thrown out, it's easy enough.. it's only Vahnatai Lords after all...

Is it theoretically possible to kill these three areas? Kill meaning to kill all NPCs in that area... before going back and doing it again and again.

I managed to do all the smaller towns in the unregistered version (the starting fort, the homestead and a couple of other places) but these major towns with guards, and the golems in Motrax's are hard to kill..

So before I spend my time getting 6 characters to lvl 50, could someone please tell me if wiping out all the NPCs in these towns in possible using only the mage/priest spells up to Level 4 (unregistered version.)

I would have access to Capture Soul and Simalcrum (you can get them then use editor to return.)so could in theory be creating extra versions of ANY creature in the game (I once spent hours capturing Motrax's soul... then I went a got a golem, and the two different Vahnatai Lords... It was fun whilst it lasted :P )

Oh - and that tower of flames as well.. is it possible to kill all the demons guarding it?

I'm one of those insane people that like going on a rampage through every game I play :D

On the Isle of Bigail, there's a crypt with a powerful undead creature (for new parties anyway) at the center. Also on the island, you could go after an item called Patchar's Plate.

Patchar's Plate? Don't you start that one in Loreli?

And the undead creature won't last long against 6 priests that do about 600 combined damage a turn... I'm level 25+ now.. having completed Slith Mines, and smashing through the goblin cave and the drakes in the volcano area.

quote:


You can't enter Sharimik or Lorelei in the unregistered versions, nor can you do much--if anything--with the Troglos or Giants; but once you have the Orb of Thralni, you can fly over certain mountain ranges and attack some giant encampments near Lorelei.

Near Loreli? You can go that far? You can go up past the giant encounters, but after Ursagi Valley/ Valley of Giants there's not much else.

But if mediaboy looking for challenges, then Dikiyoba thinks the more difficult way is the appropriate one.
The Dikiyoba must have some mages in his party... or a very strong person... with 6 priests, max stregnth 6, the door wouldn't open so I had to be crude and go in the back way. I DID empty the mines though, and took all the ores... hittiing the 15 thousand gold mark in the process.

quote:

Geneforge won't, but Nethergate will. The Nethergate demo is quite fun, and it's twice the apparent size due to being able to play both sides.
Nethergate doesn't. I tried.

Oh, and add on a couple more to the list of completed challenges:

I didn't rob anama.. it was what I was attempting when I wrote my first post... I might write a blog of how I got to 6 level 30s in under a week though... and in 50 game days. I'm on day 31 at the moment, and all my people are 25+. My lowest is 25, and my highest is 31. All are Priests, and they do up to 600 total combined damage a turn.. per square.

Using area effects then probably do about 18 times that (Divine Thud covers 18 squares)

Erm... did Slith Mines, and am off to see if X made any items in E3.

Micawber: Im' an Junior Organ Scholar at a local curch. It pays between £70 and £100 a year, depending on how much I do. The local papers have no rounds left....

which is why I'm asking for UNREGISTERED CHALLENGES...

eveyone is going off-topic :(

Nethergate/Geneforge don't work on my NT 4.1 computer. I wish Geneforge did :(

I signed up to an abandonware site, and have about 1 gigabyte of download credit. There's NOTHING to download that I won't - or rather... what I want, I've downloaded.

Stuff like Master of Magic, Galdiator (the 2d Arcade version - which is worth playing if you like that sort of thing), the older civilizations, microprose stuff...

50% of them didn't work. Sounds pessimistic doesn't it? Completed the Demo's of E2, E3, A2, A3, A4 (At a friends) and BoE.
Completed most of my CD games, gone beyond completion of quite a few other things, and generally am stuck with nothing to do.

The barriers came down as a bug I think, in one of the first copies out. I have a copy of Exile 2.019 on a CD that lets you come back past the barriers. Don't know about Macs. I'm on a PC.

A2 might let you come past (I can't remember too well) but even if it did, it's not that many challenges.

In the older versions they went down and you could go one 100x100 square further out, but not into any locations (the links weren't there.)

So you could go and fight the giants, set of the Slith Ambushes, fight the Magi Patrols (if you where lucky enough) and fight the Empire Camps around the upper part of Exile.

The whole trilogy is only $25 now. Talk to your parents, offer to do some extra work around the house if necessary, and see how far it gets you.

Dikiyoba.
$25= £18 (?)

That's 1/3 year's work for me using current income.

I can't exactly do some extra work - my siblings leave me nothing to do.

In A/E2, once you bring down the barriers, you can use the Editor to return to Avernum. More areas will have opened up for you.
I know of this, and have tried. I complted all of the Vahnatai Tasks etc. spoke to the coucil, went to portal, asked to teleport. THEN I tried to return and get past barriers. They were still there.

Both... I'm 13.

And I've completed unregistered versions of A2 and A3 on hardest difficulty.

What challenges are there for an Unregistered Version of E2/E3?

I mean - I can't register, so can't go and complete all 5 of the monster plagues in E3, and can't get to Magi Tower in E2... Before anyone asks - I DEFINITELY can't register, as I lack the payment method :(

In E2 I've gone and done Vahnatai Caves, all of the tests, and killed Mancuso AND the starting place in Chapter 3 (you try it some day :D )

Also Killed Naga, and the starting fort. Done Nephil Cave, killed the Empire Camp west of the slith fort in E2 (Also killed)

Killed Talking Spiders (easy enough) after doing all their quests. Attack Exile Guard Patrols as a quick way of training... what else is there?

In E3, I've completed both of the monster plagues do able. Killed off the trogoldyte specials (Pass Guards, Pass Village and Camp west of the caslte... including ambushes)

Joined Anama, robbed them. Killed off the guardian in the docks at Shayder and nicked all that stuff. Done some of the minor quests, but still got to get round to killing those Slith in the Mines (haven't been bothered yet... I'm not actually sure if they're there due to not checking.)

Would Kill off towns in E3 but there's none without some Guards (90 hitpoints, unbeatable armour, attack 3 times, AND have resistance to most things... most of the towns are harder than killing of Mortrax in E2)

What else is there to do?

I have also got a party to the point where Exile Guard Patrols ran from me.... and deleted the saving due to everything being too easy... I even completed the ambush and Solberg's Tower, killed off Fort Draco - but not Formello... even then the guards could hurt me enough to kill me...
