Are there ways of getting skill points aside from levelling up? Potions, elixirs or otherwise? I want to know ahead of time so I can manage my SP distribution properly :)

Thanks!!

on a side note - are you able to import characters from avernum 1 into A2 & 3?

No. You can use the editor to do it, and then you'll see why you can't. The characters that finish one game are vastly overpowered for the beginning of the next.

—Alorael, who believes that the potion is called a Skill Potion in A1 and A2. It only becomes a Knowledge Brew in the third installment.

Nope, in A1, the potion is also called knowledge brew (given 5 skill points).
Is that bad memory Alorael, or just another version 1.0 reply?

Aren't there both skill potions and knowledge brews?

I have nothing more to do in this world, so I can go & pester the inhabitants of the next one with a pure concscience.

Maybe there are both, maybe I'm thinking of E1 and E2, or maybe I'm just nuts.

—Alorael, who doesn't really think the nomenclature is too important. There are potions. You can drink them and they give you skill points.

Skill potions are an Exile thing. Knowledge Brews (which varied in power -- 5 skill points in A1, 3 in A2 and A3) were the norm in Avernum. I had never seen a skill potion until I played BoE.

Actually, knowledge brews gave you five skill points in A2 also. I know because I got mad the first time I drank one in A3 (yesterday) right after playing A2. Bah.
