Thanks, Ingie! It does make you want to go back to those great games, doesn't it? I'm glad you're enjoying Morrowind! Hope you're having fun Syd and Rowan!

Syd, I have just reached level 7 and was just saved by a wizard from a dragon. I don't think I'm that far behind you. I'm playing as a survivor. I wish I had more strength so I could use some bigger weapons, but I don't want to sacrifice on the other qualities either. I'm not good at magic defenses yet, and don't know how to make potions either. Killing orcs sure is a novel career to make more money.

Syd, how are you for solving quests and how is your reputation? My reputation is still at 2 because I saved those 2 injured soldiers, but I don't know what else to do to increase that figure. Otho the dwarf hates me and zaps me as soon as I come in sight. He's taking it so hard that I made bacon out of his pigs. oops I wasn't even going to do that, but a stupid hint popped up and I followed it.

Nickie and Ingie, I'm hooked on this game already. I try to do all my house chores before sitting down at the computer because once I load DD, you can forget about anything that needs to be done in the real world.

Rowan, so glad you're having fun! Don't worry about your reputation, you're really just beginning the game now that you're setting off out of town. And that was mean of the game to give you that hint, wasn't it? I warned Syd on another thread. frown

Still confused about the 2nd teleportation pyramid. I have one pyramid beside a bed. I have found a pyramid in the catacombs but I can't pick it up to carry around with me. According to my quest log, finding the 2nd teleportation pyramid is not solved yet. So where is it, or how do I pick this one up? When I touch it I get put to bed!

I also haven't found Slasher. I've stepped on the flashing tile and been in a new dungeon room, but no Slasher. frown

I would love to solve more quests, but have managed only 2 reputation points.

This dungeon has several levels, so you may not have completed them all. Make sure that you run round the perimeter of each level to clear the fog, as you may find you have missed a room that leads to another level of the dungeon.

The second pyramid is on one of the lower levels of this dungeon (or maybe right at the bottom), so you really need to make sure that you go right to the bottom level. I can't remember where Slasher is, but again, keep at it and you will find it - however, I'm not sure that you will be able to identify Slasher, because it's a high-level magic item, so make sure you don't sell any unidentified axes before you finish the quest. I did that in my first game and then had to wait ages until I had enough money to buy it back.

Open up inventory and drag it in there. There are alot of tiles. If remember right, it's guarded by a lord conjurer. You can see the lever and the door that it opens but it's a long trip between the two. Not all quests give reputation points.


Never resist a generous impulse.

Hi Row

How are you doing now? I'm almost to level 10 - have to bash me a few more orcs to make it (actually quite a few more orcs).

Most of my points are in strength and intelligence. I also seem to have 2 points alloted to fire resistance - not sure how that happened lol I still haven't found Slasher and I went back in a second time - guess I'll leave it for now and try later.

Well I'm going back in - see you around the forests wave

Row, there's more than one tile that will take you to other parts of the dungeon, and like hagatha says, you may be missing a room somewhere - easy to do! Hope you can find it, but the main thing is getting to the bottom level so you can find help for Mordaneus. And I see Acornia answered your question about the teleporter - I think most people have done exactly what you did, with clicking it and going back to the other one! You'll find there are several objects in this game that you have to click and drag into your inventory.

I don't have a life in real time any more! I am just sooo hooked on this game. laugh

I finally found Slasher. I don't know how long I had him because he was one of the unidentified axes I had stored in a chest to save weight.

I also have the teleport pyramid in my inventory now. So that solved 2 more quests.

I'm still in the dungeon. I had missed some places and I'm battling lots of baddies when I open those tombs. I've just opened 3 of them and am taking a rest to see how Syd is making out. I'm still on level 8. I just can't keep up with Syd. I guess she doesn't have a life either. wink

I still haven't managed to kill the drummer, the orc chief, the troll king, and some other baddie in thew basement of the middle empty house.

Thanks everyone who has helped me so far into the game. Nice to have company - good company that is. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Row, that bad guy in the basement is Jake, You'll meet him in another spot down the road.He's a toughie at lower levels. Uh huh, sounds like the dark side is strong! You're doing great!

I lost my life about a week ago when I started this puppy, but this weekend has been a total bust in the real life department lol

I just made it to level 11 and somehow managed to get 18 quests to do - haven't finished a one of them yet whistle

I couldn't beat the Orc captain either and I haven't come across the Troll leader yet. No luck with the orc drummer guy on my end. I also haven't been in the two caves I found - guess now that I have a bit more strength, I'll go back and try my luck. Still don't know if I have slasher or not - I have a couple of axes but none glow blue so I guess I didn't pick it up. I'll go back one more time and have a looksee.

I remember those hordes of baddies coming from those tombs eek They are as bad as these stupid poison spewing bees they have on the outside yeeeesh - they are a pain to kill and let's not even talk about the snakes and spiders - blech!

I just gotta figure out how this weapon repair skill works - so far all I've managed to do is try to repair a troll to death and it didn't work oops

Hi Syd, I have been able to use the repair skill by placing the worn item on the ground. I make Repair my active skill. Then I right click on the item nd I get the hammer and anvil icon. Then I click again on the item and "sometimes" it gets repaired. I can never remember if you should right or left click the on the item the second time. It repairs stuff a bit, but I find that George does repairs a lot better.

I'm down in the dungeon that has all those tombs. I've done everything here except open one of those tombs in the middle. It is locked and I can't smash it and my lockpicks don't work on it. How do I open it? I would like to finish here before going elsewhere if possible.

I've opened up most of the area around Aleroth. Syd, I have found only one cave and it is near the bridge. The troll king lives there and he is a baddie. I haven't been able to kill all the orcs that are near that ambush near the middle of the road. I may go back there and pick off a few more. I haven't crossed the bridge yet.

My main question is how do I open up that last tomb in the dungeon if my lockpicks don't work?
Thanks to everyone for being so helpful. You are all helping me enjoy it even more.

On repair: after selecting repair skill, just open the icon that shows what you're wearing or has a yellow or red hammer when something needs to be repaired. Click the right mouse button anywhere on the screen except for this pop-up window, then run the cursor over the item to see if it needs repair and left click on it.

Once you've opened up the right four tombs, get to open up one of the two in the middle. Click on it and finally get to the lowest level.

Thanks, Acornia. I'm down there now. I can't believe how vast it is. Just when you think you are finished with the dungeon, up pops another area.

How many levels are there in DD? I am now on L9.

I did a very stupid thing blush : I forgot to pick up my teleporter stone in one of the dungeons, and I had a real panic attack because I couldn't remember exactly what place I left it. Eventually I found it after much wasted roaming, but it was one of the most valuable lessons I learned.

Row, if you look back at the old threads, you will see that almost all of us did the same thing with leaving the teleporter at some point! I know I left it in the desert once and had a heck of a time relocating it. And, sounds like you're at the bottom level of the dungeon now...As far as levels in the game, you'll probably end up somewhere around 44-54, if you do most of the quests.

Row don't feel bad I just left my transporter stone somewhere in the forest and had to go back and find it. Took me half an hour to relocate it bravo It's those stupid snakes that do me in, especially when there's a bunch of them <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" />

I've managed to get three of the six teleporter scrolls and have found all but one of the teleporters. I'm up to 20 unsolved quests so far (I think I've solved 15 is all) <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" /> I can't believe how much of a game there is - it's like a whole bunch of little adventure games all rolled into one.

I think I'm going to call it a night - my eyes are starting to cross and I've lost the feeling in my legs from sitting so long laugh

I've made it to level 12. I'm trying to catch up to Syd, but she is just too good! The worst baddie in my trophy list is a zombie who has a level 25 rating. I can't remember how I killed him or where he was, but I must have been in a coma when that happened. laugh Today I killed a troll king and a drummer. Never thought I would ever do it!

I ran into a glitch today where my computer freezes if I reduce the big map to the 3rd zoom out. This happened several times, so I stay zoomed out at the middle setting. Just want to be able to zoom more to get a better bearings of where I am in relationship to everything else. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" /> I did install the latest patch before starting the game. Any ideas?

Am I at a dead end? <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" /> I am in someone's house in the merchant area and he locked me in? <img border="0" alt="cry" title="" src="graemlins/cry.gif" /> How do I get out so I can kill some more bad guys? Waaaaiiiil. I am so pathetic. This game has reduced me to sitting waaay too long in front of the 'puter. Theres no computer in this guy's house. I want out!!

Did you rescue Gremor, the lizard healer? Assuming you're at the part where he's been changed into a snake. Change him back and then see what happens.

I haven't come across the lizard in the market place yet, Acornia. The only lizard I know was in Aleroth and he is gone.

Anyway I am out of that house. It was the house just north of the doctor's house. There were no other doors and the lockpicks didn't work. So I escaped another way and got even at the same time. I looted the house and overloaded my inventory with all the stuff I might find useful in future. Then I put my teleporter in my inventory in order to keep it and teleported myself outta there! I was back in Aleroth where I sorted my inventory, changed my armour to better stuff, then used the local teleporter to bring me back to the closest place where I left off. I just walked back and am now ready to continue my quests.

Last night I dreamed up that escape while in bed. Just couldn't sleep until I got that figured out. My BAAGS syndrome now has a RPG pocket. laugh
