Hi all,

Well here I am in the last of the MM games and have started the game.

Please join me if you want.

1. I have a human man/Blade person.
2. An Elf lady-Elemental
3. A Half-Orc man/Blade person.
4. A Dwarf lady/Elemental.

We haven't gotten very far yet. Just got off the main Island and are in the first area you arrive in.

See you in the game and dance on..and on..and on.

Hi all,

Well its going to be really really though in this one because its the hardest one of all of them to play.

The monsters are very fast and sneak up behind you so be warned ahead of time.

So far I am playing on my own but am looking for a trainer to help. I have a trainer which worked in the past but with the newest patch it doesn't work anymore.

Anyone have one that works with this game?

This game doesn't have an easy,medium or hard choice to it so have to struggle along as long as I can.

Hey, the 3 of us played this game together a while back. I'm going to try it again, but I had the glitch last time where the screen went black. Guess I'll play it on my old computer.

Hi everyone,
Got the game loaded yesterday and played awhile. The game kept freezing up while loading until I used the patches. Seems to be doing ok now.

I'm playing with 2 fighters and 2 initiates. We are level 4 now and very weak and poor. I think right now we have 7 dollars.

I sure miss the map showing where the monsters are at around you. Can't see the ones sneaking up behind you now.

VHL, Did you ever find a trainer to help?

Hi all,

Well this ought to be fun with the 3 of us playing together. smile

Well yesterday I cleaned out the Strumford sewers and got the manuscript the guy wanted so was able to level up a few times. Found a lot of stuff and sold it so have a little money but not that much yet.

Don't remember what level we are now (maybe 4?) not sure.

Started to head out walking toward the next area.

I also have 2 fighters and 2 initiates and think I will have one initiate go the dark way and the other with the light way. The fighters will be both the same going toward being a Paladine with healing magic.

I have to be careful how I do the promotions because I think it was the last time I played that I really messed up one of my fighters promotions.

I know one thing for sure and that is I am NOT going to go after that Dragon because even with God Mode it took well over 20 minutes in real time to finally get him and how are we suppose to get him with only spells to protect us. Well at least I hope I don't have to go after him because I will be in real trouble without God Mode.

Hi all,
VHL, I cleaned out the Stumford sewers yesterday and got the manuscript, thought I was going to have to yell for you to help get me out. Wasn't watching the map and forgot how I got all the way down there. Made it out and now have a little money again.

I have all the outside area around Stumford cleared out now. Don't know where I'm going next yet. I may just follow VHL. lol

I don't remember the dragon or much about the game even though I played it once when it first came out.

Hi all,

Well we made it to level 5 and one is level 6 now.

We went on to the next town and got more quests to do.

Don't forget to click on the little altars in the town areas so you can use the Town Portal spell to visit the towns later kayc. This game uses altars instead of fountains to teleport.

The sewers are tricky to follow your way around but with watching the map carefully as to where you came in you are able to find your way out.

Those bread crumbs are comming in handy...aren't they? Hehe.

I may try to clean out the Asram keep(spelling?) today and possibly get the guy sprung from prison...maybe.

As for the Dragon.....wait until you see how really really big he is....yikes!!! The first time I saw him my jaw dropped way way down to the floor.

Can't go to the chasm area yet because I need feather fall spell first and I know the ghosts are really strong there so will wait to go there.

So how are the rest of you doing?

Hi all,

Well I thought that was you sneaking up on me Smiley...hehe. Don't sneak to much because we shoot first and ask questions later. Just kidding.

Does anyone remember how to open the main room doors
in Anskram keep?

I got rid of the imps on the right side and the left
side of that room but don't remember how to open the doors
in the main room.

I also already let down the draw bridge and opened the
gate.

Hmmmm....may move on to something else while I wait.

Smiley and I are both right behind you VHL. I just finished the Anskram Keep.
There is a lever on the left wall near the brown doors you want to open. You have to move the lever and run through the doors before they close. After you get through and they close the next doors open.

There were 2 more levers there in a room on each side you had to move first to get the third lever there by the brown doors to move.

I had a hard time finding the lever to raise the gate. Finally found it. I had shot the chains so the draw bridge would lower but couldn't open that gate. They hid that lever real good. I could get out through the hole in the wall though, so wasn't stuck in there.

Hi all,

Yes that lever is very very hard to see but it is there. You have to search along the wall across from where the chain is wound up on big rollers thingies.

I finally remembered that you have to go in at the top of the keep to find the levers to pull.

I was trying to find levers when you come in at the bottom and there just aren't any to be found there.

That is where I am now (just pulled one on the right side and have to work my way over to the left side to pull the other one).

It looks like I am not far behind you now Kayc and Smiley so you have to leave the bread crumbs now hehe.

I might have been a little further in the game but what with baking and wrapping gifts for Christmas I didn't have much time to play.

Hi all,

Well I cleaned out the Anskram Keep but not sure if it somehow got messed up by me going in the front way first and then going up to the top of the keep to enter the door there.

I destroyed all the portals and got rid of the imps but I don't get the big guy at the end to fight. I beleive I searched all the rooms to be sure I got the portals but still get no fight at the end and the jarl doesn't regonize the quest as being done.

I read in the walkthrough that this was a glitch but I have installed the 1.3 patch so don't know what is going on.

I have to go back to the walkthrough site because I think there might be a fix for this so have to see if there is anything I can do. I hope I don't have to start this game over because of this thing happening.

I do have old saves so if worse comes to worse than I can at least install one of them and go on with a different party.

Oh well....this is where I am at now.


Edit......Ok I went to the site and here is what I found.

Anskarn Keep Bug: (game version 1.0)

If you leave Anskarn keep without clearing it, you will not be able to complete the quest -- the big imp will never appear. M&M supposedly has a fix for this, but it didn't work for me. The following workaround though did work for me:

1. Leave the keep, and position yourself by the entrance on the top floor

2. ALT-TAB out of the game, navigate to the "minisaves" directory, and remove all of the anskarn* files from the minisaves directory. You can safely delete them, but if you're a prudent person like me, you can just move them out to a temporary directory. ALT-TAB back into the game.

3. Enter anskarn via the TOP entrance. Use the switch/double-doors in the center to get from the back half to the front half. Everything will be reset. Kill all the imps, and a "ding" sound will be heard. A big imp will appear in the front room. Kill him and you're done.

Hi all,

Just came back to let you know that what I have posted above did acually worked.

I just removed the minisaves for Anskarn Keep which were near the top of the folder and replayed the keep killing all inside and got the message in the quest book that it was complete.

This is great because you don't loose anything in your inventory or experience. You just get to replay the keep and finish.

Yes Alan the end is very hard but hopefully we will be strong enough for the big guy at the end.

Hi everyone,
VHL, sure glad I went in the door at the top first. The only problem I had was finding that trap door on the floor. Didn't know it was up there.
Got my fighters promoted to Gladiators yesterday, now I'm broke again. I must not be using my money wisely because I'm always broke.

Haven't found anyone yet who will promote my Scholar to a Lich, but haven't been to all the towns yet. I've been clearing the area's outside the first towns we visited to get a little stronger.

Hi all,

Well after cleaning out the keep I got my fighters promoted to Crusaders.

Now it will be the ladies turn to get promotions.

We are level 10 for all.
Have to go to Guberland to get the ladies started.

The lich guy is in Frostgaurd (spelling?)so when you get there you will be able to get that.

Well I didn't really play with this game very much yesterday because I decided to see how Ghotic II was and its not bad so far.

Hi all,
VHL, I did the quest to get the mines producing again yesterday. After finishing, the Jarl wouldn't recognize that it was done. Thought I was going to have to do the whole mine quest over again and finally found one little piece of the wall up on top that wasn't knocked down when I broke the wall where the girl and the cats were at. Soon as I knock the little piece down I heard the sound that you hear when a quest is done. Whew!

I'm now in Frosgard looking around but haven't done anything yet except talk to the Jarl.

Hi all,

Good that you made it to Frostguard. The guy you are looking for (I think) was near the Tavern.

I am still running around back and forth finishing up a couple of quests in the first 2 areas but will venture out soon to other areas.

I did free the prisoner though and keep forgetting to go to the Tavern to get him and escort him to the Jarl. Ok on my way.

I started to play Gothic II yesterday and just kept on playing it and having fun.

Ok...Ok...today I will continue with this game hehe.

Hi all,

Well played yesterday and hired a guy in Guberland to help us so now we have 6 people fighting together. He was waiting near the guy that trains you. The only thing bad about that is that it is expansive to take a boat to anywhere since the price is for 6 and the money gets used up real fast.

Oh well have to visit the dungeons to get more money....so what else is new?

I found a Town Gate lady in Guberland yesterday for the first time ever and wouldn't you know it....I didn't have enough money to hire her. She was near the Temple so will have to see just how many people I can have working for me.

I know the first guy you take with you doesn't stay with you for the whole game so that will open up his space for hire but by then I may not need the lady because I will (I hope) have my own Town Portal people.

We are level 12 and just visiting places to get more quests and or finishing up other quests.

At the moment clearing out the outside of Guberland.

You will have to do the minisave trick again if you leave the ice castle (can't remember the name) before completing it.

Hi all,
Thanks Invar, I'll remember that when I get there.

VHL, I haven't had any extra money to hire anyone until now. Got a little bit left over now. Got my Scholar promoted to a mage. Yay! We can finally use Town Portal and Lloyd's Beacon. When I get stronger, I'm going back after those two in the room where that key was that you needed to get the book. Took about 30 tries to grab that key and run.
With a lot of resting, I'm almost to the Lich Lab to promote my other one to a Lich.

I've never played with a Lich before. What are some of the best spells to use? I have lots of them I've been saving for her to learn when she's promoted.
