I got Capture Soul and Simulacrum in Ghikra, when I was given the Soul Crystal as a reward. My Mage is Level 9 (this is not my main game, but an unregistered one on another computer), but the two spells are greyed out - even in combat. I thought I'd capture the Alien Slime, but had to kill it instead.

What have I missed?

Just for fun i captured some cows in the crystal and i used my 2 mages to keep summoning them in a fight i had against some giant lizards. Eventually i had about 20 cows on my side and the lizards were eventually overpowered. Mwahahaha... fear my cow army!!!!

Up yours, Ferox! I thought Corpus Stalker made an amusing post and on-topic.

Why start a new thread, just to keep you happy? Are you paying for bandwidth?

May I suggest you read Corpus Stalker's tagline. The one about 'diplomacy'... :D

Thread necromancy is only bad if the necromancer has nothing new to add to a topic. In this case, I'm pretty sure it was fine.

I've found a cheat site describing the space in the saved game where the captured monsters are stored, and fiddled around with monsters a little... With 9 Erikas, 4 Ur-Basilisk and a Drake Lord, the game can get rather fun for a short time.

Just one advice: Never try it with Doomguards. When they split, the copy is set to default - ie. hostile. I summoned five of them, one of them split and they proceeded to take each other (and my party) apart.

I was disappointed by the Dark Wyrms I summoned; they just stood there and didn't do anything. If they had fought my enemies as hard as they fought me they'd be great.

The Mung Demon worked fairly well. I'd just as soon rely on the Arcane Summon spell and let whatever comes up work for me.

I apologise for using profanity. I forgot there were so many children using this board.

Mea culpa.

now i remember something.
back when i was playing the a3 demo (e3 too?), i used to capture that drake lord or whatever hes called whos hiding in a secret lava tunnel in the mountains in sw valorim. i think the entrance was on the north side, a bit east of the mines.
hes quite a killer though and a nice guy. he will ask you for aid twice, i think. if you do so, youll get a reward, but i dont remember what kind of reward.

If you help him the Drake Lord gives you a plate armor and tells you to go away.

If you kill him you find a plate armor in his lair.

The plate armor was rusted or something like that.

Micael, grow up.

Hrm. Would it be possible to cast Capture Soul on Erika and be able to produce a copy at will? Judging from BoA, she's an independent monster type. She also might not be capturable, judging from BoA, but it's a thought.

I mean, without hacking.

... er, why not? i run a forum of my own, and from a moderating and reading standpoint i far prefer it if someone digs up an old topic rather than just posting a new one repeating what's already been discussed. it shows they've made an effort to find the answers rather than just begging for someone to tell them the answer without even bothering to look, for one thing. i'll even merge them together if two threads with the same topic are posted. less redundancy, less clutter, all the answers in one tidy place... not everyone will have something to add to a topic all at the SAME EXACT TIME, after all.

to stay on topic, my list and a question.

in Avernum 3 I am not done yet, but currently have:

-Demon

-Naga

-Ice Drake

- and a lame wraith which i captured to test it out...

and i don't find it useless. sure, in your average random encounter, it is, but not when you are facing a great number of foes, like when you drop the barrier between the giants and Trogo's, or whatever... then again, i can't cast arcane summon yet, so...

my question is, I am facing a Dark Wyrm, and i would like to capture it. i want it to replace the wraith, cus it's useless. but it seems to want to overwrite everything BUT that one >.< is there any trick to getting it to overwrite a specific slot, or is it random, or what?

The general idea, Jill, is that most resurrected topics look like this. That is, someone pointlessly revives a topic while adding nothing new and creates more spam on these already too-taxed boards.

Reviving a topic when you have something genuinely new and relevant to add is fine. It's just that most people don't do that.

Dear Pink and Pretty Lord,
Duly noted, but an answer to Jill's question about overwriting slots in the Simulacrum would be mightily appreciated. :P

(Geez, I just took an off-topic whipping in Gebra. Those Mad Monks are - well, mad! Sorry, back to the topic.) ;)
