And I already have a question laugh

When I woke up in Joram's hut (and which other game is his voice used????? - It's driving me bugs - it's an adventure game) and I could hear his voice (obviously) but now none of the the other characters I "talk" to have voices - you just read - I can hear them when they talk to each other however. Is this the way the game is supposed to be?

Okay I lied - I have two questions - somehow I gave my whimpy wizard an axe and now I can't seem to put the sucker down. I just got through running around slashing at poor little bunnies - luckily I didn't get any of them rolleyes I cannot figure out how to take the axe out of her hand so she's going around smashing things and pissing people off lol

bravo I know it is going to be wonderful hearing your comments about the game, and already you are showing your delightful wit. To answer - yes, that is the way the game is, because of the huge amount of dialog, only some of it is out loud, which can be a goose out of the middle of silence laugh You have an icon on your interface (uh, just right of center, I think) that shows you ready for battle or being peaceful, and you just click it to change it from one to the other (and you autmatically will pick up the active weapon or drop it). If you forget, no doubt there are several characters who will remind you wink

Thanks nickie - I'll look for that icon. I really don't need to be chasing after small furry mammals with a double bladed axe laugh

I'd just like to know how the heck I gave it to her in the first place. But it did come in handy when I was smashing my way through barrels in the well and I even somehow killed a skeleton (I know, I know - how do you kill something already dead) wave

Hi syd:

I'm glad you're playing DD! It's a fascinating game, with a lot of side quests, along with the main one. It will keep you occupied for some time.

I had the same question about the speech when I started, and, nickie is right, that's just the way the game is made.

Have fun! smile

Syd, the game auto-equips your character if nothing is already in that slot, so I'm thinking you didn't have a weapon equipped already, so the game put the axe in your weapon slot automatically.
Like Nickie said, click the button to get out of combat mode.
If you want to put the axe in your inventory, you have to open your inventory AND your weapon/armor paper doll screen and drag it to your inventory from there.
I love DD!

Watch what you kill by mistake. The whole race will take offense (except rats - they don't seem to mind). You really don't want to spend the game being attacked by cats and dogs.

Hagatha is so right! And don't kill the healer's pigs, no matter what the game tells you to do.

Thanks for the warning - I didn't even mean to kill the bunny - before I knew what was happening I had the axe in my hand and the bunny was dead meat so to speak - I didn't hit a button (that I recall). Just don't tell me I need to kill the rats for food - yech - I was grossed out enough taking the meat, cheese and bread from the well - all I could think of was "I'm not eating that" especially when I saw the critters running around down there.

Haven't seen the healer's pig yet - but I promise not to get a hankering for pork chops laugh

One thing I do have to get used to - this is the first game I've played where I can get caught walking into someone's house and taking stuff. A lizard guy got real upset at me for strolling in when he wasn't home and helping myself to what was on the table, and I also got caught taking a herb from Lanilor's garden without permission - I of course said I didn't know who's garden that was since there wasn't a sign rolleyes Looks like I need to curb my "take anything that's not nailed down" tendencies <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

Congrats on starting Divine Divinity, Syd! wave You better be careful that you don't pick up anything around guards. They'll catch you at it even if they're not looking. They also will be a bit nicer to you once your reputation goes up. Mine is at 7 for reputation right now. I also have a level 12 warrior at the moment. Have fun killing the orcs. They deserve every slashing and thrashing that they can get! Good luck with the game! I'm still have fun with my warrior! wave wave

P.S. You are allowed to give your mage anything you want from weapons to spells to the stealth skill.

Level 12 huh mackie? My whimpy wizard just made level 2, which I guess is why I could massacre a poor defenseless bunny lol

Hi syd:

The food looks gross, but will help restore some strength. Not a whole lot, but some. Experiment around with different things. I think I remember chicken doing the most. smile

There's a funny thing about playing the wizard, Syd - he/she seems to get less hungry than the other characters, so maybe you won't have to hold your nose and gulp too often! Have you visited crazy Mordaneus yet?

Syd lol
Shocked, just a little. Not very understanding these folks.
I loved this game, it opened a whole new world to me I never thought I'd be involved in, save, save save that was how I got of so many jams!!
Have fun, it's GREAT!! laugh

Syd -

Definitely listen to Hagatha. Cats will make your life miserable if you've killed their kind. Dogs too...it's easy to accidently kill things you shouldn't. Don't kill any thieves in the catacombs or the poor citizens will also turn on you. Stick to killing monstery things. Also boars and wolves are ok because you get meat. I just couldn't bring myself to kill bunnies. There was plenty of other protein available. wave
