Hi Ingie - I found Slasher laugh but now I've lost the good doctor eek When I didn't need to talk to him he was all over the place - now that I actually know what I want to ask him - he's disappeared - the sneak!

I also found some sort of teleporter stone that zapped me from the soldier's fortress to somewhere dark so, I zapped myself back. Not sure where I went but I marked it so I can go back. I'm now on my way to rescue the little boy's folks from the house - that is if I can find the key he dropped.

Wish me luck lol

Syd, there's some good treasure to be had from that garden! Don't miss the sewers that Ingie mentions - it will level you up in a hurry. Did you go to the church itself and solve the quest there for the priest?

Found the gold in the garden - didn't find anything else however laugh

Haven't been in the sewers yet - where are they?

Just rescued the kid's parents and killed a few more orcs. I need to go back and find their teleporter scroll and the Imps one (whoever the imps are - haven't seen one yet that I know of)

Went to the church early on and that one specter wiped me out in a heart beat so I decided to go back when I was a bit tougher - which I am now. I also need to figure out how to get past those traps in the cursed abbey.

I also can't kill the troll king and his minions in the troll cave, but I'm working on it <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

I went underground to follow Elona who'd been kidnapped by the zombies. For one thing you can't save once you're down there - for another what on earth do you use against a steel scorpion??? I was doing okay zapping the zombies but that sucker got me in two shots.

I was thinking about getting Elemental bolt - is that a good one? I have four skill points I saved up because I wasn't sure what to use them on. I want to increase my metorstrike skill but can't do that again until level 25 - which hopefully will be tomorrow. Also my lock picking skill is only on the lowest - is it worth upping it one more?

That's about all I can think of right now. Went to the Dark Forest and wound up with 3 more quests before I hit the end of the road slapforehead The mountain trolls were a bit too tough for me so I'm going to head north.

Your levels are high enough to beat those suckers.
Is that the lighting skill? If so, yes I used it a lot, that and meterostrike. also don't forget flying disc, you'll really use that skill later.
Lighting works great on trolls and anything you don't won't to get to close too, Also you sword will work on them, though not as quickly, then you have repair cost.
You're really doing so good, if you left an area earlier that you thought was too tough, now's a great time to back and whopp up on them. You'll level up and get loads of expierence points.
Did you do everything in the boneyard?
Also, the trolls and abbey area and don't forget the church, that's an easy quest and you'll need it.
The steel scorpion, I would try the lighting, but it seems to me I might of froze them and then beat them up, it's hard to remember, but you'll get it. Trail and error is the only way.
Also, I did the same, saving my skill points.
You can go in and up a level if you're able or start another. I know so many choices, but your wizard isn't whimpy no more, If you chose intellegence, you get a lot more expierence points.
This game is so good because other than about 2 scenes you can save anywhere.
You need to clean the sewers out, did you join some of the guilds? That would be good.
I liked the lockpick skill, used it a lot, but think I stopped at about level 3.
Also, I really think you can nail the Troll King.
When you found the poision did you report it to get the quest completed?
Boy, I forgot how much of this game I forgot. <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />
It's a hoot though, lockpick probably is not as important, you're a mage, so I would zone in on those mage skills and some of the warrior-don't know your choice of weapon, but get good at it. Did you get the charm spell so you can enchant your weapons with the stones? That's a great one to up on so you can use those babies.
I know Nickie will be a little busy next day or 2, but she'll help, she's got the best memeory on this game. and I repeat, read the older strands, it helped me so much.
How many of the scrolls do you have now? and did you activate each of the teleporters so you can just use them zooming back and forth?Remember to have weapon ready when you transport wink

I don't know if you can go back and get the treasure or not from Nericon's garden, but you can activate a hidden portal in the water.
I can't remember the name of the spell I used on those scorpions - fire wall? or something like that, which leaves a trail of fire behind you (but you do have to move,ha!)Eventually if you have enough strength and a good sword, that's easier.
I only got level two lockpicking, and I was overqualified, since there are so many keys laying around.
How I did the abbey - I used skeleton wall (no laughing, Jean!) and put them in front of me so they would set off the traps, plus I used a protective spell. At the end of your battle, you may find a hidden room, and it is not necessary to beat the baddie, might call for a little negotiation instead.
When you say undergroud, you must mean in Jake's Lair, where there is a glitch in the game and you can't save. You can get to the sewers through grates in the ground - there's one in Verdistis, and one in the merchant place, that I can think of.
Might be worth your while to do other stuff before the Darkened Forest, more difficult. Remember to save before you pull that sword out of the stone (very important,because it can wreck your game).

Saturday afternoon update laugh Found the sewers and have been zapping my way through them for the past couple of hours. My gad they are huge!

I've finished the church quest, the abbey quest, got into Jake's lair and rescued the kidnapped lady, killed the vampire, and gve Gareth his feign death potion. Still haven't finished George's murder quest nor the plagues. Also have had no luck getting Balin's necklace. I think the sucker hocked it somewhere and isn't talking about it lol

When I finally get out of the sewers I'm on my way to Verdists to see what's happening there laugh

You've done a lot, Syd! bravo I'm still orc hunting. I am having a devil of a time in the SE corner of the map. Have you done this yet?

Check Jonas' house for the necklace. It is on a piece of furniture near a wall and quite well hidden. Use the ALT key to find it.

Sorry, I sent the same message twice. Don't know how I did it. Must have been in click mode after clicking on so many orcs.

Hi Row - okay I'll go back to Jona's house again. But I still say the sucker hawked it laugh

I know I ran into all sorts of nasty trolls where the prison pits are - are you further SE than that? Have you gotten into the head orc's tent yet? He's a nasty tempered beast rolleyes

I also wound up on one of those raised mounds and found a sign that said "old battlefield to the north - don't touch the stone" Well, I touched it lol (never did follow instructions well) laugh Holy mackrel - that let loose a skeleton horde like you wouldn't believe. When I was done the mound was riddled with bones and I was sweating.

I found where Tingalf hid the goods but there must be something else I need to do because I can't get the quest to end. There's one chest that's booby trapped with poison so maybe I need to somehow get in there for the proof I need.

I'm now wandering around Verdists just getting my bearings. The owner of the Ducal Inn (who also is a member of the thief's guild) wants me to pick a pocket - I don't have that skill yet and not sure I want to waste a skill point. But I don't think I can do it without it.

Anyway - that's it so far. I think I'm level 24 now.

You actually killed those baddies that came out of that stone? What skill worked for you? I've died every time, but you are probably stronger than me. I just made level 20.

I've cleared out all the orc territory except for the furthest SE corner where a teleporter should be. I just can't get near that corner at all.

I haven't tried Verditis or the Dark Forest yet.

laugh Everyone just has to touch that sign!!! In Verdistis you will find George's murderer, and after that, you need to go back to Mordaneus and tell him about it.
On the Tingalf quest, when you kill Pedro he drops a note, and you need to show the note to - can't remember his name, the military guy.
Yeah, you do need to get a point in the lockpicking skill, but you won't need more than that. And getting in the Thieves' Guild is important.

Whew I'm glad I'm not the only one that can't resist touching things she's been told not to wink

Row I think at the time I found the mound I was level 22 and had a level 2 on my metorstrike skill (man, I love that skill) laugh I'd hit them and then run so they would fan out a bit and not bunch up on me. Then I'd blast away with finger on the ready to hit the space bar and zap out of there to recoup. Then zap back in - hit, run, hit, zap out.

I checked the orcs to the SE - nope, I hadn't gotten that far - they are stronger down there and as soon as I got the scroll from the orc captain or whatever he was I left for awhile. I just leveled up to 25 last night and put one more skill level on my metorstrike and I think I have two or three skill levels on my lightening bolt (I've used this one a lot lately for some real toughies) and went back in and am currently wiping them out :laughing: It's starting to take a lot to hurt me - I have some pretty nice armor on and my strength is getting up there so the health bar doesn't move down like it used to.

Nickie it dawned on me that I needed to pick up the note Pedro dropped after I got to Verdists and found the book about the guy falsefying the financial records. I thought just reading the note would trigger it but when I found I could drag the book into my inventory, I went back and did the same with the note. All is well - quest solved laugh I also solved the plague quest and cured two of the victims (I think it's rude that there are only two cure potions and three victims) frown

I do have one question - that fenced in area where the soldiers are - I go in and a wizard or something appears and makes the soldiers attack me - if I kill the soldiers in there (which I'm forced to do or they kill me) then all the others on the outside attack me. I saved right before I went in just in case something bad happened - and decided that maybe this comes into play later, so I went back to a previous save. Is this supposed to happen or after you get the main quest going does the outcome change?

Okay, I have one skill point unused so I'll assign it to pick pocketing if getting into the Thieves' guild is necessary.

No, you can go ahead and kill those bedazzled soldiers if you want to. Any soldiers not near them shouldn't turn against you, unless you accidentally kill some that aren't bedazzled!
