Alrighty then - I slashed orcs and made my way to the Blue Boar Inn - I just found out I was robbed arrggghhhhh - sneaky bugger. Anyway, is there anything to do in the poor section of town besides talk to the residence? I talked to the girl at the inn so I got the quest to take the letter to her uncle -

Oh, just thought of something - do I need to clean out all the orcs? I mainly concentrated on the ones that were blocking the path - I ventured out into the nether regions once or twice and did some in but there are still a bunch hanging around.

Syd,
You're going town-literally! laugh
Yep, you need to get rid of the orcs you'll be finding more, but should try to clean them and other things from around the village back, front sides, as you level you can go back.
Have you met Maria? Talk to everyone, you may be able to find the drunk pickpocket that took your stuff-the rat-I found once and he gave me back my lockpicks. bravo
You're having fun and that's the main thing.
Just talk to everyone and SAVE, find safe places to sleep and stash your goodies and a good person to trade with.
I love reading what you all are doing, it's like playing it again!
Thanks so much for sharing
Ingie

There are a couple more things to do there, but you might want to head to the farmlands to get some easy quests, and the fort to pick up a couple you will need.

Had to surface for a bit and relax my clicking arm. Trying to level up by only killing orcs and other assorted small critters takes a lot out of a person.

I did make it to the farmlands - didn't know I was there until I talked to one of the farmers however laugh Now I just need to find the barracks and deliver my note. The milkmaid said it was on my map but darned if I can find it. Also where does this Dr. Whatshisface go to? I tried to follow him after he talked to the soldier but by the time the game let me move he was gone. Guess I'd best do another door to door sweep whistle

Try picking up repair skill and deadly gift in the warrior category. Deadly gift is really nice when you pick up scorpion traps, mines, and something else. Use the scorpion ones when there are alot to kill and then follow the scorpion.


Never resist a generous impulse.

Don't worry about the doctor yet - you'll run into him (or his house) in a while up north near the trader's market. The bees and wasps are annoying, aren't they? Did you get the quest to see who is poisoning the crops?

Good merceful heavens people, how many quests does this game have??? lol

I talked to the two guys in front of one of the houses last night - somehow missed them the first go around and the one talked about the trolls (I think it was trolls) killing his son. Better check to see if I have that on my quest list. I took the love letter to Gareth and talked to the General who gave me a note to visit Captain Matix - which I did (of course I also brought along a whole legion of orcs that were chasing me and let the soldiers kill them - told you guys I was a whimpy wizard) laugh He got ticked off because I'd opened the letter from the General (I didn't but he said I did) so I have to blow up the supply line and am lugging around a barrel of explosives. Sure hope it doesn't go off on it's own). I found the way into the mines through that guy's house but there is a big sucker down there that I cannot figure out how to kill yet so I headed back up to farmland where I found another teleporter and talked to those two guys.

No quest to find out who's poisoning the crops and I didn't find anyone hiding in the barn that I remember - I killed a nasty that followed me in there however.

Also I went back to have Otho repair some weapons and he's gone, flown the coop, left the building. Does he do that or is he just out on a walk and will return? If I can't find him what do I do? Do I need to find another town and look for a weapon repair man?

Acornia I acually found a scorpion trap but had no idea what to do with it. I also have four trail traps that I'm not sure what to do with either. I'll try to get those two skills from the warrior - I don't seem to be having much luck getting skills for some reason. I'm still not too sure what I'm doing when it comes to that. If you are the correct level how come when you click on them they don't appear in the center box? Does that mean you are never destined to use them?

I did finally discover that you can move the map around and I found where the red flags were so I know where the supply train and the Dwarian Inn are. Not that I'll be able to get there anytime soon - but I know where they are now <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

Try to fight some of the orcs with the guards so you can level up and increase that skill.
Use magic if you can, I always liked the Metorstrike,lighting and flying disc(you'll really need that one much later in the game)
While you're back in the first village explore the outer regions as much as you can on all sides.
Watch out for snakes!
There is so much to this game, but you're having fun so that's all that matters.
Here orcie, orcie

Woohoo, there are a ton of quests! You can do as many or as few as you like at this point, but if you want to be big and bad you might want to do a lot! How I did the quest with the explosives - I used the black potions to make myself invisible, and I ran there, clicked the explosives to the appropriate place, took more potions and ran out of there. The black potions are a must have for us wimpy wizards!
I don't know about your skill question, unless you don't have enough points to get the skill? I never used scorpion traps or anything like that, so can't help you there. Every skill is available to you though, at the appropriate level and if you have the points to get it.
For repairing your stuff - you need to head north when you can. If you stick to the path, it shouldn't be much of a problem. You'll first come to the dwarven town, and north of there is a trader's market, where the blacksmith is at his forge. Once you ask him for help, he'll go to his house, which is just north of his forge, and you have to follow him there.

Well here I am four hours later and almost to Level 10 wimpy wizard laugh I cleaned out all the orcs between here and the farmlands except the orc captain - he is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too strong for me right now - two smacks and I'm a gonner. I did go back underground and looked for Slasher - can't find it anywhere - did pick up some more gold however, so it wasn't a total loss.

I looked at my quests and no quest about the little boy so I guess I either didn't ask the right question or I need to go talk to the guy again. I did get a quest to catch cattle rustlers however lol

I do have a question. When I leveled up I got the repair weapon skill and can repair Level 1 weapons (just not sure which ones they are) - now this has happened twice - when I come across a troll and start to fight him I get what looks like a hammer hitting an anvil when I go to attack him. Any idea what the heck this icon is? My son thought it might mean the game is auto repairing my weapon but I don't have a clue.

I'll head up north nickie and look for the trader. I really need to get these weapons repaired and some traded in.

Make youself invisible huh? I wondered if that's what that one potion does. Now that I'm back in the farmlands I'll go back into the mines and give it a try.

This game is sucking up way too much of my life right now lol

You have just encountered the "attack of the anvil"!

You have to make sure that after you repair something, you return your action icon to the weapon icon, otherwise you will end up trying to "repair" your enemy. Where you now see the anvil icon, click, and select your weapon of choice.

This is also rather embarassing (not to mention fatal) if you have left your lockpicks active).


No fancy-pantsy Elven dagger-twirlers. Just tough guys.

Arggh not the attack of the anvil! I did that so many times...You don't need to go into the mines if you use it, just straight across the board, since they can't see you.

Hagatha was right - that was soooo embarassing happydance

I'm now off to blow up a supply train for real and get one of my quests off the books. I cannot get the quest about the little boy to show up so I guess that's one I won't be doing. I've talked his father three times and the conversation comes up correctly but the quest never shows. Guess I'll live without that one but I so wanted to dig up a grave whistle

Hi acornia - I don't know if I talked to the mom or not but I talked to someone named Carolin and she told me her son was lost over by the Dark Cave - is that the same quest that Ingie was talking about?

I got the supply train blown up and finally found slasher. So far that's it for tonight. I've been roaming around killing things and have made it to almost level 14.

I'm having a terrible time trying to solve the poor scared soldier's delima and the cattle rustler quest. I've been told that the assassin has been seen running through the cornfields but for the life of me can't find him. I've tried day and night and nadda. Does he show up somewhere?

I also stumbled on some zombies (Jake I believe) dragging some poor lady underground. Naturally I followed - naturally I died lol

I did finally manage to find the weapon repair guy in the merchants village. I even sold off a lot of my inventory laugh I still have some stuff stashed around George's place that I think I'll go back for and sell. Do you need the rings and stuff for anything other than selling to get gold? I found a bunch near some "ahem" grave robbers that were pretty miffed to learn I killed their boss and they were now unemployed whistle

That's enough babbling for tonight -
hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to accomplish a bit more quest wise.

good god - I've been following the thread, and by the description of the gameplay, it certainly reminds me of Morrowind... and the almost boundless limit and freedom of the world frightened me away from that... yikes! Dare I enter the world of Divine Divinity...? wink

Oh yeah, go play. Most of the quests are in one (large) area and until get most of them done, don't really want to go someplace else. Syd some of those items have been charmed and if you wear them, will get more vitality, magic, or resistance to poison, etc so have them appraised if you can't identify them. Go all the way to left side of the farming community and talk to someone hiding in a barn. Then around the middle of the farming community should find an orchard, with the assassin in the middle. Find him too soon and only get to talk. Don't worry about the soldier, just say that you will do it. Will be a long time before can find that potion. Carolin is the person need to talk to find the son. Save game once you get inside the cave. Boy does it get harder to level up the higher you get. Need about 900,000 to level up--am at level 26. One more thing, if talk to Hugh about a bill, don't offer to pay it unless you're carrying alot of money.
