Well I just barely started 7 yesterday but I can wait on it and play 8 with everyone - is 8 a continuation of 7 because it didn't appear 7 was a continuation of 6 (how's that for confusion at 7 in the morning?) lol

Hi Syd, glad you're on board. None of the M&Ms are continuous. You start out in different locations & the story line is different.

Ingie, I don't know about downloads - M&M8 won't play on XP for me, so I use an old computer.

I got the game to work on XP (but I don't have SP2) - I found a patch for computers with XP - I think at The Patches Scroll. Well at least I got the "make your party" screen to come up and I'm trying to decide what kind of party to make - I'm leaning toward - Knight, Dark Elf, Necromancer, Troll and Cleric. The Minatour sounds like a good one also - decisions, decisions woozy

Until I decide for sure I'm playing a bit of 7 laugh

Hello.
My version of M&M8 runs on XP with no problems and patches and otherwise nefarious stuff. It's only 6 and 7 that were a problem. 6 only ran on 98 and 7 didn't run at all frown
I talked to Pat, she's already way ahead of me. I only just got to Ravenshore and I'm looking for some guy to teach me the art of killing people with a bow... yay.
Well, I got gold, I'm killing many baddies... life is good.

One of the great things about this game is that you can add party members as you go along, and get rid of those you don't like. I've forgotten - was the vampire available at first? I found him ever so helpful early on because of the levitation thing,but not so after a while. And the wizards that can become liches were so powerful, just loved them!

I've meant to play this game for a while, so I installed it in XP using Win 98 compatiblity. Running good and I have been exploring the islands and ended up at an abandoned temple. Looks like I need to be stronger before I attempt it, so I am heading back to town for training and beefing up. I did find some nice chests filled with treasure on one of the islands.

Hi Lucca - good to see you!

In this game, you only start out with one character. You can pick up a cleric & a knight right away, & eventually you can have 3 dragons, who are awesome fighters. I chose a necromancer to start with, because I will pick up another later & I like to have 2. Necromancers are the same as sorcerers in the previous games.Just make sure the one you pick is what you want, because he's the only one you can't get rid of later.

Pokey - the Abandoned Temple is one you have to do, since it's the only way off Daggerwound at first.

Nickie, I think there's a vampire you can hire at the adventure's guild on Daggerwound.

I just got started & have a necromancer, the cleric, Frederick Talimere, & the knight Simon Templar. I'm going to deliver the cure disease potions & see if I can make a level before trying the abandoned temple (which isn't quite abandoned!) smile

Safely back in town again. I picked up the necromancer and the vampire to go along with the cleric and the knight. Used the gold I found to purchase level 2 and armsmaster, whatever that is, as well as fire bolt. Is there anyone in town to train in using weapons?

Jeez I'm not sure what I'm doing lol I decided to be a troll because my son suggested it and man is he ugly (the troll, not my son) laugh I have the cleric and necromancer right now. It took me forever to figure out how to find out where the spell book is and to cast spells. These bucaneers are knocking me around but good. I hope I can find an archer pretty soon. At the rate I'm going I'll be in this town forever.

My main character is a dark elf. Wasn't thinking when selected, just wanted to look at the game. Seems she uses both magic and weapons. Is this a good choice, because starting over would be no problem.

I've just been avoiding all enemies in the early part of the game, since otherwise we die quickly.

I've never used a dark elf, Pokey, but it sounds interesting. She won't be able to use an axe or spear & can't wear plate armor. She can learn magic, but not at the highest levels. You'll probably want to keep the necromancer since he can grandmaster Water & Air.

Syd, a troll is a good fighter, but can't use magic of any kind.

Every character can learn Bow. There's a weapon shop in town, True Mettle, where you might be able to learn bow for everyone.

I'm using a Dark Elf too, it's actually a good choice because I think they combine combat and magic the most.
Can they get any type of body armour though? My poor elf is taking many hits. Where can I learn "chain" or "plate" or "leather" or "kevlar vest"?

Hi Lucca, a dark elf can learn leather or chain to master level. You might be able to get the skill at the Tannery in the first village.

Hey, Smiley! Glad you're going to join us. We ARE fun, aren't we? lol You finished this game before, didn't you?

Lucca, glad to hear there is another dark elf to maybe give me some advice. I think she can use chain armor. I found some leather armor but she won't use it. I see Frederick has a chainmail vest. Maybe I can trade him.

WOW, what a great board. Glad to see so many are joining us. I just had Cauri Blackstone join my party and she had armor. Her level is which is much higher then the rest of my part. I had a vampire in the beginning and I wish I knew she could levitate. The Menatour was a good fighter, but do to not being able to where armor such as gloves, boots and head gear he died pretty fast.

All of a sudden I can't cast any spells. This happened since I aquired Cauri B. Does anyone know what the problem may be?
Thanks,
Pat

Well I finished cleaning out the Abandoned Temple and got the snake statue and the book - now I just have to deliver it to the right folks. I now have a cleric, necromancer and knight in my party. So far we're doing pretty good. Does anyone know if you can get into the other three chests in that big room in the temple? I can get one open but when I try for the others I fall through the floor.

If your where I think you are I traveled along the edge to open the chests, I think it's 3. You can't step on the red hot spots. Just go through to the door and if you fall through just go back and try again. You doing well because I had to go back to get the snake statue.

Pokey - a note about armor - your dark elf is ELIGIBLE to wear leather or chain armor, but she can't use it until she pays for the training. Go to the Tannery & pay the guy to learn the skill. Then she can wear it.

Pat - I don't have any idea why you can't cast spells. Having Cauri shouldn't make any difference. Are you still having the problem?

I made it to Ravenshore, then went to Garrote Gorge & got my first dragon. I couldn't handle the Troll Tomb yet, so I went back to Dagger Wound to do some quests there. I don't have the snake statue yet, either, Pat.

Chests? In the room with the red floor? No wonder I didn't find the snakey book thing. Which one is it in?

I just killed all the dire wolves and got horribly diseased. Bah! I'm going to go get meself a dragon and get rid of Simon. He's useless.
I want to sell all those weapons I got but I can't find a place that will buy them in Ravenshore frown
I also can't find a place that will teach me leather. Should I learn chain or leather? Which is better?

A good site to check things up is

http://www.flamestryke.com/mm8/flamestrykes_mm8.html (just klick on which place your character are in) Since it provides maps on where everything is.

You can learn leather and chain at the polished shield (armor shop) in Ravenshore.

It depends actually. some of the party members can become Master and Grandmaster in leather, and those levels gives diffrent bonus skills. Chain provides more armor tho, but like the leather, chain gives its own skill bonuses.
