I suggest you find out for yourself when you play the game.

Judging by precedent, I'd guess that A5 will cost $28.

—Alorael, who expects other information will be revealed in due time. Or perhaps not. Anticipation is good too.

Why don't you come over to my tower and see if I have anything new to say. :mad:

I can live as long as I want to. :P I have immense magical skills that you will grow quite fond of in A5. :cool:

My name's Solberg. Pronounced Sol-Berg. Exile/Avernum's Greatest LIVING Archmage! I'm sure you've heard of me at some point.

Oh, come on. Solberg hasn't lived in his tower since A2. In A3 he was a ToM resident until evicted by demons, and in A4 he was a bitter, bitter inhabitant and administrator of Patrick's Tower.

—Alorael, who thinks that's about as low as a mage can sink. Having to work in a tower named after someone else? That's cruel!

Best news I've heard in a long time (well since G4 was released anyway...)!

For God's sake, Solberg is going to be in Avernum AGAIN?

Give me a break. Just hearing that has forced me to reach that conclusion that I will not play Avernum 5.

Some sort of grudge or just sick of him?

In E1, there were very few interesting characters, and Solberg had some good stuff to say about the history of Exile, so he gets a pass.

In E2, Solberg was actually a pretty cool character. He actually had a legitimate reason to isolate, withdraw, and be bitter, but for once he didn't whine and complain about other people; he actually tried to be helpful. And he provided an interesting perspective on the final plot point of the game.

In E3, he whined and moaned about Linda but didn't actually do anything about her return. I always found that a little bit ridiculous. Solberg was the senior triad member, and I can't imagine either X or Mahdavi really pushing to get Linda back, let alone Micah. So I've always held Solberg partly responsible for the Tower of Magi disaster. Plus, he got demoted to teaching frigging level 4 spells to noobventurers. Lame.

A4 saw more whining and moaning and general uselessness.

I spend all my life in cheat sites,I know more cheats than chitrachs in the Eastern Gallery and I know some troubles with them,by example in G4,the code for get more exp doesn't work if you have a level higher than 40.And did you know than before the releasing G4 for Windows took ONLY TWO DAYS for the cheats to appear,That's VERY QUICK.

Yes, I'm sure all this talk about cheats is very fascinating. Especially since it glosses over the very fact that Drakefyre, and his notable absence from these forums, has had a remarkable influence on the the plot of Avernum 5. This is a conspiracy folks, and you are all pawns.

Not really that quick. It had been out for Mac for a long time before that. Besides, the question isn't about what cheats are available, it's about what will be available. That is known by at most three people in the world right now.

—Alorael, who would expect all the A4 cheats to return. There's no reason for Jeff to carefully remove them from the engine.

Hahahahaha.The removing of cheats from any game FULLY IMPOSSIBLE,Dante and I spent many time discovering cheats in suposed cheats-purged games,and we ever found 4 or 5 than still work.The cheats are gaps in the games scripts,as far as I know there is no way to fully remove the cheats,no matter how good you are scripting,there ALWAYS is a gap on the data.

But you are forgetting about his friend, Dante, 93% of what he says is true!

UPDATE: never mind, he beat me to it himself...

I wonder if I could pay Jeff $28 per person to not allow them access to A5. That would make it very difficult to use any cheat codes, neh?

Don't be mean.
He didn't disobay the CoC.
You did by accusing him of nothing (or that was what you applied).

Edit -I finally reached the 'Explorer' title.

...Infernal Flamming Muffin. Blake has definitely disobeyed the CoC, what with his endless talk about him and his friend Dante cracking games open. Not to mention the very poorly- and thinly-veiled suggestions that he and his friend could supply cracks to members of the board.

He's basically hanging himself.

EDIT: The only reason I'm not with Infernal (not muffin) on this one is that Blake has claimed to be working on a Blades of Avernum scenario, and thus I can't completely write him off yet. But I'd suggest that he finishes that thing as soon as possible, to establish some concrete reason as to why he's not being banned yet.

Right! ;)

They whine at points...and...I..."used" to whine here. And all of us, at one point or another, were useless.

Anyway, anything else about this game Jeff?

I dearly hope the newbies A5 brings to the board are just... better... than the ones GF4 brought.

yay! from everything ive heard, there will be no way around a5 for me. finally another game i would gladly pay for after the avernum trilogy!

theres only one thing i still have to hope for, though: that a5 will resurrect some of the a1-a2 flair. which means, of course, that at least a part of the game has to happen in the underworld.

edit: i forgot. if rentar-ihrno really comes back as an undead, i will repel spirit her *** so long she'll keep herself from ever being mentioned again in any game in the world so she doesnt risk getting any more of my attention. isnt my nickname humiliating enough to keep her away?
damn rentar. i started hating her the second she wouldnt let me inside her lab. BRING BACK ERIKA INSTEAD!
