I'm right, and disagreeing with me is wrong.

Regarding Pearlblossom, I thought I found a clue once: Manius Volta, the merchant in Vanarium, brags about how he managed to steal something from Castle Aethedoc. When I first saw this, I immediately through of Pearlblossom, but I couldn't make any further progress with it.

Ohh, the puzzle box. That reminds me, just what did the puzzle box do? I found it, but never saw any reference to it again.

Different enough to buy? in The Exile Trilogy

The story is more or less the same, but gameplay is significantly different, and many people, myself included, prefer Exile's setup to Avernum's. I suggest you check out one of the demos and see if you agree.

*sigh*

Bring pants to Rentar-Ihrno's fortress. In the southwest corner of the upper level are two runes. Put the pants on one, and step on the other.

TM misspoke. Once you have the key, you want to go to the northwesternmost room. The door the key opens should be visible from the hall.

If you imagine someone a million times smarter than you and a good deal sexier, FBM, you might get sort of vaguely close to an idea of how Thuryl stands in relation to you. If you try to mock him, you can just hope he's apathetic enough to ignore you.

If all you want from the drayk is his crystal, you can talk him into giving it up if you have enough Leadership (I think I had about 6 when I did it). It saves you the trouble of fighting.

Levy Buying/Selling Money Trick in The Avernum Trilogy

Also, if you've found any of the legendary artifacts, a bug in the game makes it possible to sell them to Levy and then get money for buying them back. As a bonus, you also get multiple Fury Crossbows and Black Halberds and so forth for your party :)

I played Nethergate with a singleton once. It was a very long time ago, but I'm pretty sure I did it as a Celt. After the first couple of chapters I pretty much cruised.

I think you must be confusing Sulfras (the live dragon you rescued and who unleashed quickfire on the fort she was in) with Pyrog (who's dead and lives somewhere else).

100 is the max, and I've gotten it. You're "true heros" at 98 or 99, I think.

You could try killing Anaximander with Protective Circle, and then taking the necklace.

I'm from the big city. Growing up I never thought state fairs happened anymore, but died out at some vague point in the past and lived on only in nostalgic TV shows. It's kind of hard for me imagine them taking place in 2004, but then again, I don't have much of an imagination.

I know that a character in Pollux alludes to Lazarus being in Castle Relaford, but that alone would make a pretty unhelpful hint.

Originally written by Kelandon:

My understanding was that the reason that Jeff didn't make sequels to Nethergate is that it didn't sell very well. I think I heard that from someone who was just speculating, though....
I imagine it would also be difficult to write a sequel for, given the ending.

That answer makes some sense, but given what the OT does condone, I find it hard to believe it came from men with weak stomachs.

There are some Vahnatai down near the bottom of the school, and one teaches a couple of moderately high-level mage spells.
