I remember this object from a previous playing, and after a haitus of a couple of years, I have realised that I enjoy the comments produced by this item.

Can someone please tell me where to find him/her/it?

The Xian skull is on a hill near Bolton in A3, I believe. It's being worshiped by some ogres.

It's east of the river and south of Golddale and the nephil community.

What's with giant types worshipping a talking skull? You have it in Nethergate also,

Maybe talking skulls know a bunch of jokes that make fun of regular-sized people and their strange ways. :P

I don't really care for the Xian Skull; it says a lot of meaningless comments, and has very little (if any) useful information.

Because in the middle of a large battle, it told me no less than five times to buy it a hat.

Darned skull.

A skull can't be darned, but oh well.

Why did you say darned instead of damned?

Anything can be "damned" because it means to curse or condemn. "Darn" means to fix a hole in a sock.

Xian items are irksome overall, there's only fun for a short duration of time.

Except for the coin, since I'm always strapped for cash.

If I remember correctly, the Xian coin granted insufficient quantities of money to make it effective.

True, but every little bit helps, especially if you're just one or two coins away from something you want to buy. This has happened to me on a few occasions.

Wouldn't killing week enemies be quicker than the Xian Coin, I tossed the coin the minute I got it and very rarely went back to pick it up again.

Quicker? Under most circumstances, yes. But I just happened to be in a town and one gold short for a purchase when the coin's ability kicked in. I guess it was probably just luck (but not the character ability "luck").

Money adds weight? That's news to me, and I've been playing Jeff's games for almost a decade now.

Coins do not, in fact, add any weight to your inventory.

I didn't think they did. Good news for me, because I tend to hoard cash.

Xian Coins are probably the only useful Xian Item in Avernum 3.

Is a man not entitled to the products of his own essence?

No, says the servile in Medab. It belongs to the oppressed.
No, says the Shaper in Terrestia. It belongs to the Shaper Council.
No, says the Trakovite in hiding. It belongs to no-one.

I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something
different. I chose the impossible. I chose… Ascension."
