Flutist, I couldn't get up there either. The walkthough I have says to find the tombstone shaped like a step (did that) and from there jump to the next stone. Well, straight ahead was way too high, and the ones on the right seemed too far away. Plus the skeletons just kept hammering me. (I hadn't figured out Invoke yet) I gave up on that and went onto the island. Now I have flight and I thought I would go back but haven't been able to yet. I sure somewhere I'll be able to go there again or maybe even be required to go there, but I haven't found it yet.
I was on Standing Stone Island when a mysterious floating veiled woman appeared. She didn't do anything so I just looked her over and then left. Should I have elimated her? I've run into this several times in Undying. Lately most of the Howlers just come up to me and squat down doing nothing. I don't kill them since they are not aggressive. Some follow me around for a short time. (I've started talking to them Bwaa Waaaaa) Now more & more of the Tsanti (?) are doing this also. Is this a minor game glitch? I'm just wondering.
Also, I accidently pressed Caps Lock when I had the scythe activated. It moves more powerfully now and I have noticed number drain on my magic. I haven't tried this on any other weapon yet but will soon.
Absolutely LOVED the snow in Past Monastery!! I stayed there a long time just looking up & down & foward. This is how I always think snow should be!!! Loved it, Loved it, Loved it!!! I didn't not want to delete the saves for that part of the game but I knew I would need the space. I will play this game again just for the snow!!
I also climbed a vine covered wall, jumped a few roofs, fell down a too short ladder and ended up out side the main complex. (Back at the house) I wandered around the outside for quite awhile enjoying the cliffs and scenery. Then when I tried to get back in; found a short dark wall, jumped up and died! I don't know what I hit but bam! I'm having a lot of fun with this game. Thank you all so much for getting me to play it!!
