Here I am Ingie,

The problem concerns the Scorpion traps. I loved using that the first time I played. Now I just cannot find the skill in the skill choices.

Have put a couple of points in Deadly Gift and I have three scorpion traps in my inventory. My little grey cells tell me I'm on the right track - but as my little grey cells are decreasing and need to e-mail each other to keep in touch laugh (I thought the noise they were making was tinitus) I don't rely on them 100%. lol

Can you tell me if I am on the right road, please?

God Bless,

Alice

Yea, I know those little gray cells..I have 19 left and I'm holding onto them... rotfl

You'll find that skill under the Survivor Path..and I'm not sure, deadly gift may be it..but I think it's in the upper left hand corner of the skill path..and has a trap on it.

Because of your love for them when you first played, last time I played I used them all the time, so much fun after figuring out how to use them..

I have DD on board..what are you playing as this time??

When I make deadly gift my active spell it shows my scorpion traps and trail bombs. I then just pick the one I want to use and where I want to use it. Deadly gift is a survivor spell. Top left second row. I hope this helps. I also love the scorpion traps. They save my life often. wave

Thanks Connie I knew the path but wouldn't of bet on the name..Are you playing now too?? Where you at in the game and what are you playing as??

I never did get use to the bombs..I seemed to manage blowing myself up instead of the enemy rotfl
..but ahh, those scorpion traps are a life saver indeed..heavy, but very useful.

Many thanks to everyone - my half a dozen remaining grey cells seem to agree - sooooo off I go to tackle my mail then load the game. Need the scorpions to deal with the hordes when I dispatch Thelyron to day. Am right at his door and I'm level 7 so think I should have those scorpions working.

It is so enjoyable playing D.D. again - better than last time. Think it was my first RPG game.
Have been reading the thread we had running then and realise what a wimp I was laugh

Be seeing you, and again thanks for your help

God Bless,

Alice thumbsup

I'm playing as a Mage and am upto a level 11.At the moment I am just about finished with the sewer. Then back to the Abbey and Church. They are both giving me a fit. This is my first RGP. I just bought Beyond Divinity. wave

Wow Connie Mage is hard to start with..I suggest holding off on the Abby until you're a few levels higher..it's tough.

Alice...to quote "You've come a long way baby!"

I think DD has been the first RPG for so many of us..it holds fond memories and it's still enjoyable!

Oh my gosh Connie, I didn't ever try to go to the Abbey before I was around level 20. In the game it is considerably easier to go east rather than north first. Sounds like you're a born RPGer! bravo Just remember to not go to the Castle, no matter what the game tells you, because once you do it kicks in the main game, and you miss the fun of stuff to do before you get to that point. Mainly it takes away your teleporters laugh .
Being your first RPG, how are you enjoying it, and what don't you like? Is there anything you don't understand?

Thanks for all the tips. I am really enjoying the game. I don't even mind all the times I die as I save very often. I like that I only have to control one person as this is my first game of this type. I have hit a few spots where I didn't know what to do. When I get stuck I come here and read all the posts I can find. I also go to the Larien forums sometimes. Everyone here has been so helpful and made this a great first experience. I will stay away from the castle and wait to go back to the Abbey until I gain more levels. My son who is a big RPG player also said the Mage was not the best to start out with. Next time I'll try the fighter. Thanks again for all the tips. wave

Hi all,
I've been kicking around the Farmlands and Ars Magicana most of the time, determined to reach level 11 before tackling anything serious. Can now use the scorpion traps so will be venturing further tomorrow.

Suddenly found The Abbey by mistake and backed away quickly. When I clear that I'll me moving in as I did last time - have booked my rooms. Those right near the door to the teleporter laugh

Am eager to change my lodgings as Gregar Brock died right beside my bed and I can't move the body lol The W/T said he could not come above ground without dying but assured us he could come back to my house when I need to rest. It just didn't work that way rolleyes

Ingie, I gave your love to Geoff and got a discoount rotfl

One strange thing - haven't collected many quests to date.

Will pop in tomorrow

Alice

Connie, I think the warrior is the easiest, because he has a dazzling special move. But for me, I wouldn't have half the fun if I couldn't be a mage. happydance

Alice lol Love the special rooms comment! And Ingie is still after Geoff, huh? rotfl Which quests have you received - did you get the ones from the military guy? A lot of the other ones you'll just find yourself stumbling across. luck

Nickie, the only quests I've received are mainly those which help the game through Aleroth and the catacombs. Have one to find a small boy, and another to avenge the boy killed by trolls.

Oh, yes, have to find the sorce of the plague and bad harvest, and get an escort for the healers. But those two are main stream.

Well, will see what today brings.

See you,

Alice

Hi all - think I have made a huge mistake. frown

Didn't realize 'The Barracks' was, in fact, Stormfest Castle - please tell me it isn't blush

When I was told to find an escort for the healers, with the last time I played this game in my mind it registered as go to Captain Mitox and I wasn'r ready for his quests at that time (or now). So I pottered around to get some experience and landed up at the Dwaven Inn and met the other Marked One. So was told Zandalor was at the castle. Now I can't find the Barracks. cry

At the moment the world map is annoying - I open up large areas but when I return they have to be opened up again - this didn't happen the first time I played D.D. Any ideas?

Whatever - I'm ready for bed.

Be back,

Alice thumbsup
