Ok, this is kind of a dumb question, but how does the Trilogy CD work? I'm thinking of buying it because I like the first three's demos, and I want to get them all, and I figure I can save a lot of money buying the CD ($45) rather than each one individually ($75)

Does the CD just come with registration codes or full versions of each game? Also, are the Avernum games that come on the CD exactly the same as the ones you would download, i.e., they have all the same stuff, same gameplay, same story, character editor, etc.? I'm curious because the CD sounds like a really good deal and I want to make sure It's not because the Avernums that come on the CD are not the same.

Thanks in advance!

If you get the CD, you get a full version of all the games. It really is a great deal.

—Alorael, who checked the ordering and noticed two funny things. You can no longer get Nethergate (Resurrection or the original) with another order at a huge discount, and Nethergate is now the single most expensive Spiderweb game.

The CD-ROM includes the registration codes so when you install from it the full version is ready. Real handy if you need to reinstall.

It also has demo versions of the other games, so you can try them out and later register them without having to download them (except Nethergate Original that is on a separate CD).

I've also noticed that an hintbook is no longer sold for BoE! I guess that makes me special, for I have one. I can only wonder why it was removed.

There was never a hintbook sold for BoE - the hints came in the instruction book.

I didn't get an instruction book when I bought BoE :(

Are you talking about the hintbook and instruction manuals for Exile 3? I didn't think there was one for BoE.

BoE came with an instruction manual when I got it, but maybe Jeff never bothered with a reprint when he ran out.
