And I already have a question laugh

When I woke up in Joram's hut (and which other game is his voice used????? - It's driving me bugs - it's an adventure game) and I could hear his voice (obviously) but now none of the the other characters I "talk" to have voices - you just read - I can hear them when they talk to each other however. Is this the way the game is supposed to be?

Okay I lied - I have two questions - somehow I gave my whimpy wizard an axe and now I can't seem to put the sucker down. I just got through running around slashing at poor little bunnies - luckily I didn't get any of them rolleyes I cannot figure out how to take the axe out of her hand so she's going around smashing things and pissing people off lol

bravo I know it is going to be wonderful hearing your comments about the game, and already you are showing your delightful wit. To answer - yes, that is the way the game is, because of the huge amount of dialog, only some of it is out loud, which can be a goose out of the middle of silence laugh You have an icon on your interface (uh, just right of center, I think) that shows you ready for battle or being peaceful, and you just click it to change it from one to the other (and you autmatically will pick up the active weapon or drop it). If you forget, no doubt there are several characters who will remind you wink

Thanks nickie - I'll look for that icon. I really don't need to be chasing after small furry mammals with a double bladed axe laugh

I'd just like to know how the heck I gave it to her in the first place. But it did come in handy when I was smashing my way through barrels in the well and I even somehow killed a skeleton (I know, I know - how do you kill something already dead) wave

Hi syd:

I'm glad you're playing DD! It's a fascinating game, with a lot of side quests, along with the main one. It will keep you occupied for some time.

I had the same question about the speech when I started, and, nickie is right, that's just the way the game is made.

Have fun! smile

Syd, the game auto-equips your character if nothing is already in that slot, so I'm thinking you didn't have a weapon equipped already, so the game put the axe in your weapon slot automatically.
Like Nickie said, click the button to get out of combat mode.
If you want to put the axe in your inventory, you have to open your inventory AND your weapon/armor paper doll screen and drag it to your inventory from there.
I love DD!

Watch what you kill by mistake. The whole race will take offense (except rats - they don't seem to mind). You really don't want to spend the game being attacked by cats and dogs.

Hagatha is so right! And don't kill the healer's pigs, no matter what the game tells you to do.

Thanks for the warning - I didn't even mean to kill the bunny - before I knew what was happening I had the axe in my hand and the bunny was dead meat so to speak - I didn't hit a button (that I recall). Just don't tell me I need to kill the rats for food - yech - I was grossed out enough taking the meat, cheese and bread from the well - all I could think of was "I'm not eating that" especially when I saw the critters running around down there.

Haven't seen the healer's pig yet - but I promise not to get a hankering for pork chops laugh

One thing I do have to get used to - this is the first game I've played where I can get caught walking into someone's house and taking stuff. A lizard guy got real upset at me for strolling in when he wasn't home and helping myself to what was on the table, and I also got caught taking a herb from Lanilor's garden without permission - I of course said I didn't know who's garden that was since there wasn't a sign rolleyes Looks like I need to curb my "take anything that's not nailed down" tendencies <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" />

Congrats on starting Divine Divinity, Syd! wave You better be careful that you don't pick up anything around guards. They'll catch you at it even if they're not looking. They also will be a bit nicer to you once your reputation goes up. Mine is at 7 for reputation right now. I also have a level 12 warrior at the moment. Have fun killing the orcs. They deserve every slashing and thrashing that they can get! Good luck with the game! I'm still have fun with my warrior! wave wave

P.S. You are allowed to give your mage anything you want from weapons to spells to the stealth skill.

Hi syd:

The food looks gross, but will help restore some strength. Not a whole lot, but some. Experiment around with different things. I think I remember chicken doing the most. smile

There's a funny thing about playing the wizard, Syd - he/she seems to get less hungry than the other characters, so maybe you won't have to hold your nose and gulp too often! Have you visited crazy Mordaneus yet?

Shocked, just a little. Not very understanding these folks.
I loved this game, it opened a whole new world to me I never thought I'd be involved in, save, save save that was how I got of so many jams!!
Have fun, it's GREAT!! laugh

Syd -

Definitely listen to Hagatha. Cats will make your life miserable if you've killed their kind. Dogs too...it's easy to accidently kill things you shouldn't. Don't kill any thieves in the catacombs or the poor citizens will also turn on you. Stick to killing monstery things. Also boars and wolves are ok because you get meat. I just couldn't bring myself to kill bunnies. There was plenty of other protein available. wave

Hi nickie - yep, I've talked to Mordaneus (he's the one that turned Lanilor into an ice sculpture, right?). I did figured out how to get down into the catacombs but I'm missing a key to open a gate so I came back up. I also talked to otho and just found Goemoe's healing shrine. I think I know what I need to do - we'll see laugh

About the food - I found a piece of cheese in the well and also saw the rats. I thought I could catch the rats using the cheese (why I wanted to catch the rats I have no idea) so I clicked on the cheese thinking I would pick it up - well, I ate it rolleyes I wasn't sure if it was rancid and would make me sick so I started that part over thumbsup

Hi,

You can kill bunnies,frogs,bees,wasps,boars,wolves for experience points.
Boars,wolves will give you meat.
I am level 22 in all 3 games I am playing now and so far, there are very few dogs and cats in the area but they also give you meat if you need it.
Eating is part of this game but you can also buy you meat and bread from merchants.
If you press the letter C you can also equip your weapon and be ready for battle.
Left clicking will make you use your weapon and right clicking is for you magic.
First you have to decide which magic you will be using.
I use Meteorstrike a lot because it only costs 2 to use. The number changes as you get stronger in that magic.

Also, Lightning Strike is good on the Wardrummer's when you run into them. Remember to keep right-clicking to use your magical abilities on the wardrummers when you attack them. They have their own restoration powers that makes them invulnerable weapons. So, I wouldn't even bother attacking them up front and personal. The wardrummers work with the orcs. So, if you ever see one with the the orcs and you're not ready to attack it. The best thing to do is be a chicken and run away!!!!!!!!! laugh laugh laugh laugh

Yes, that little drummer boy was the first one I went after when I leveled up. wink I also discovered, quite by accident that if you in fact face him, not his back, you can kill him faster. I had one that chased me everywhere, even inside a tavern. Left me alone while I was-er-conducting business, but then chased me when I was done. Very polite these monsters, they let you do your business, rather it be talking, sleeping or picking up goodies then on you like a swarm of bees! And no one else seems to notice them! happydance

In the beginning stages, freeze is very good as well - since if you are attacked by something too tough, or too many of them, you can freeze and run!

I got the drummer boy with the life leech spell. It's not a nice one, but it does the job. Suck the life out until he's almost gone and then hit him with freeze or whatever you have.

Ah oh I think I screwed up already. If you drop the teleporter stone down can you pick it back up and put is somewhere else? I put it down by the entrance to the catacombs and it transports me right into the middle of a hoard of skeleton archers and being the whimpy wizard that I am I die immediately rolleyes I also stepped outside the gates and watched Sir Seth (I think that's his name) wipe out orcs and tell me to go back inside the gate. Can I wander around outside or will that tick Sir Seth off? There is gold sitting out there just waiting for me to pick it up and I can't find anything else to do inside except find the key to the catacomb and I can't find that critter anywhere.

Can one of you fine ex-DDer's give this poor lost wizard a nudge?

Oh I also got the gem from the healing shrine - should I have?

Oh again - I'm writing down most of the info found in the books - is it necessary? <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" />
