Congratulations on getting to Level 2 - that's quite a feat in this game.

I killed the ghost skeletons with a silver sword. Worked like a charm laugh

Actually, the first mage guild quests (the ones you get in Balmora) are a snap - It's the Thieves Guild ones I'm having a time with - I'm stuck on two of them right now - both involving books rolleyes

Row is right - you can kill anyone without getting thrown in the slammer as long as they attack you first (not sure about the guards - I leave them alone).

I'm not too sure bribing was the smartest thing to do - I spent 1200 gold to get 1000 back - those are the type of economics that got the state of CA in the mess it's in rignt now lol

I killed my first ghostie! laugh Syd, you're right...that butter knife I was using just wasn't cutting it. (ba-doom-ching!) I have no idea what I'm doing other than stealing everything & selling it but I'm going up levels right & left. I guess shopping is my thing. Is there a shopper's guild? lol

I gave up on professional thievery for now. I stunk when they were my main skills. Can you imagine an ox pickpocketing? Hey, maybe I'm confused about this, but when you join the Thieves Guild can you still steal from anyone, even fellow thieves, as long as you don't get caught? duh Maybe I'm reading too much into the "rules". I thought no stealing, meant no stealing. Period. I was worried that would put a huge dent in my coin-purse. Can anyone verify?

Bought the Mark spell. Then after about an hour of failed casting realized that I also needed a separate spell to return to said mark. slapforehead D'oh! So premade magic spells aren't that scary anymore, but I'm having a heck of a time trying to "recharge" my magical weapons.

I've been stuck for hours now in some mine or cave or tomb or something underground. Lava mine? Trying to get that puzzle box for the info guy for Spydaddy. I can't find it anywhere in here. Put it this way, I've filled up on merchandise & returned to Balmora, twice. I've gone everywhichway in these twisty-turny tunnels. WHERE IS IT?!?! AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!

laugh Love, Jen laugh

Jen,

as you have learned you need a tleast silver weapons to kill a ghost/skeletons

don't feel bad about not finding the puzzle box. just aobut everyone misses it.

if you have gone past the first room you have gone too far as it is right in the beginning. Go to the bottom of the entrance chamber. There are three doors on this level, but none of them are the one you want. Face the rock formation that you came down, and you will see a smaller one going up. this leads to the second floor, above the three doors on the bottom. the puzzle box is in a room on this second floor to the left on a bookshelf.

Jen you're doing great. happydance
The guide book won't make you start over, you've got the character you like. What it does do is place each quest for each guild in their section.
Very helpful and I thought the maps and directions to getting to places were a great help.
But there are plenty of folks here that have played the game and have the guide and can help you out.
So glad you're enjoying the game and sounds like you're learning real fast how to deal with some of those horrible nasties. lol
Remember to make sure you work on those Major and Minor skills.
Using the magic is not hard once you're able to cast, it just takes practice.

Syd,
I remember those books!! I can't believe it, but I remember. Will wonders ever cease lol

If you are really having trouble and think you might want to restart, a good choice would be a spellsword - a character with both fighting and magic abilities. You can fight your way out of trouble until you've figured out how to use magic.

The first time I played I joined the mage guild by stumbling in the door in Balmora, then did most of their quests before I even realized that there was ...(cough)... a main quest I had to follow.

Don't get too freaked out about whether you know what you're doing. Morrowind is so huge and long that there is plenty of room to make hideous mistakes and still become the most all-powerful character around. If you mess up a guild - not to worry - join another. No biggy, unless, for example, you invested very heavily in only one set of skills and mess up that guild. You can join all guilds up to the point where their goals conflict, and you will probably know when that point is because you will be sent on a quest that requires you to kill someone or do something that violates the other guild's code.

For fighter skills, you can join several different groups that will help you develop your skills. And later in the game when you are very good at fighting, you can spend skill points on some other attributes and become very good at other skills like magic or thieving, if you are so inclined.

By the way, installing Tribunal will help you because the journal is more orderly with the expansion added. You'll be able to track your quests more easily.

Thanks, Zanthia. I found it. Duh...right over my head. I did the "code book" quest for the fighter's guild, not a problem seeing as I hadn't joined the thieves guild yet. I just bribed her 20 gold & she handed it over. smile Nice of her. Do I want to give it to the Fighter's Guild Master or do I want to keep it? She gave me the choice....does it come in handy later or something?

Thanks for the tips but I ain't starting over again. I'm really not doing that badly..I just whine good. I'm level 4! happydance

The code book is one of my problem books - the other one is called Withershire - (I have to steal it and keep getting caught). Unfortunately I joined the Thieves guild before I tried for the code book so there's no way that woman is going to hand it over to me - she just harumphs at me when I go by her (I really ticked her off) lol

I don't think the book has any use so I'd return it to the Fighters guild guy.

I guess I should go back and continue on with the main quest (if I can remember what I'm supposed to be doing that is) bwaha-hahahahahahaha

I've never had a problem being tossed out of a guild from stealing - Thieves included. I just seem to take at random (as long as no one is looking that is) wink

Oh and welcome to the Guild of "Not a Clue" where our official club smilie is <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />

Jen, you just found the solution to a problem that I never figured out when I played Morrowind. I never was able to get that code book. Now I know it's because I had joined the thieves guild but you hadn't. I think a lot of people were stuck on getting that code book.

I cheated. lol I read a WT regarding the codebook so I knew joining the Thieves would only complicate matters. There is a way to get the book even if you've joined....but you'll have to look it up yourself, I didn't pay attention to that solve as it didn't pertain to me. Sorry. duh Oh wait...that should be the official <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> !

Level 6 & counting. Just killed me 4 Camonna Tong! I'm still only in the Blades & Fighter's Guilds. Plan on joining the Thieves soon. Found out don't need to join Mages for travel advantage, they'll send you for moolah. Just lootin' & sellin' trying to get some good armor. Why is it only light & heavy seem to be readily available? Hmph! Went to a new town via giant bug. I was disappointed not to have a cut-scene or anything while riding the siltstrider. That would have been fun.

I was wondering how to up my reputation. I've only got a 1 in there & that's a recent development when I let Hides-His-Eyes go free. Have I made some wrong decisions or something?

Unless it says that your reputation has decreased no wrong decisions were made.
I think it increases as you complete certain quests rather main story line or just plain being a nice person.
You're moving right along and seem very setteled into the role of 'not a clue club' member happydance

Found naked blue guy! Killed naked blue guy. We found the witch & when he wouldn't go for her deal I sided with her. He attacked & now he's dead. Oops. I've got a save right before this if I should keep him alive. Didn't get that axe, gave me some stinking potions instead. Cheap witch. Is there a "better" resolution to this quest?

Well you could side with him and watch him beat the snoot out of her which is what I did laugh Then loot her body. I think in addition to the axe and the potions I got some kind of staff that I sold off and I gave him the axe - didn't really see a need for it.

Redid naked blue guy & I like the outcome better when I side with him. (that doesn't sound as bad as I think it does, does it? lol )

Anyway, now I'm completely without a clue. I needed money so traveled via mages guild to Ald Ruhn for some fly-by thieving. Got a bunch of "work" all related to one guy who's late on payment to a bunch of merchants. Got all their stuff back, but it was tempting to keep the stuff...worth more than the reward. Wondering if doing the right thing was really the "right" thing.

Went exploring in the Manor district & inside one house found this note regarding a guy imprisoned behind a tapestry. Stole the key & freed him. Had him follow me out but I had to kill many guards/faction members along the way. Was I supposed to do that? I didn't get a quest or anything & I killed about 5 people doing it. I hope none of them are necessary NPC's. frown Should I wait on this part until someone asks me to rescue him? Is he even worthy of rescue? Dumb ox me lets everyone go. HELP!

Oh, I have the boots of blinding speed....are they evil? I don't want to go blind while running fast...splat!

I think there is one NPC you shouldn't kill when you rescue what's his face (this was part of my Redoran House quest). I think it's the first person who starts to attack you as soon as you come out from behind the tapestry. I think I read somewhere that she is part of the main quest so not to kill her. I can check for certain when I get home.

I just ran fast and didn't have to kill anyone - took me a few tries to get out but I did and 'ole what's his face followed me right along as I took him back to his daddy laugh

As to the boots - I have them too but haven't used them yet. I think we need a "don't let me go blind while I wear these suckers" spell, and I haven't found one yet lol

Thanks, Syd. That's what I was afraid of. I should have stuck to my original plan of pilfering & left rescue for later. Will reload an earlier save.

BTW...bought the GOTY edition today just to get the expansion packs. lol Loaded Tribunal only, just for the journal benefits. What a difference! laugh Unfortunately the store didn't have the guide book. <sigh> Should I bother loading Bloodmoon at this point (does it have any benefits NOW) or is it purely for added mayhem? evil

It seems as if an old quest isn't solved. The tax guy from the first town? I don't know how to finish it other than find the guy's wife & give her his ring. Any ideas?

If you find that unique spell wink let me know where it is. I just love shoes.

laugh Love, Jen laugh
