Re: Is that a real score screen?

Sade, how on Orakus did you get 12 challenges? I don't see how you can earn Pacifist and True Mage and still get past the places in Talushorn that require damage dealt to objects (the wooden barrier and the computer door). Trickster Throwing Demon Oil next to an object and thus damaging it indirect...

Re: Suggestion for B3: Pickpocketing [B2 Spoilers]

Why should one meet every challenge by following the main quest line?

Challenges are supposed to be special, additional tasks that spice up the gameplay. There's no need to ever meet any of them if you just want to finish the game.

Re: A dying man is evil?

Exclusive sneak preview of Book 3! :lol: What about changing the text to "You must never allow a friendly aligned NPC to die via another creature or evil aligned NPC, unless there is nothing you can do about it." That, in addition to making the dwarves you mentioned break the challenge if you kill ...

Re: A dying man is evil?

To think of it, the challenge should also break when Korren dies during the ending video.

That doesn't happen, however, so either
1) Korren doesn't actually die, even though "he is reduced to nothing more than a cloud of ash", or

2) Korren is evil aligned, too.

Re: Best Weapon / Armor EVER

I guess you could look at it as a funny-shaped ray gun. I presume it doesn't count as "Kills made using a bow" or "Kills made using Magic?" Just checked it; it does count as a kill, but not either as "Kills made using a bow" or as "Kills made using Magic". I suppose that the game handles the wand a...

A dying man is evil?

According to the restrictions of the True Healer challenge: http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/9136/rulesv.jpg However, killing "A dying man" (whose real name isn't told, AFAIK) in Wolfenwood forest does not break the challenge. In fact, even letting him die himself should be against the second rule...

Speedrunning

I tried to get through the game as fast as possible, without caring about experience or challenges.

Ironically, the attribute Speed is probably the worst one for a speedrunner to invest in. :?

Re: Completion score, place them here! (press P in game)

My attempt at getting the maximum amount of challenges. The first one is with the Wealthy Lord challenge, the second is without it. Pretty funny how getting the missing ~30 000 gp almost tripled my total game-world time. http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/623/maximumchallenges.jpg http://img819.images...

Re: Spoilers! Staying a Level 1 Mage as long as possible gam

How do you get past the difficulty 10 doors in the ultimate challenge? I know theoretically you can charm the nearby tauraxes to get the advanced key, but will any of the others survive to kill General Ghorr? I haven't tested it, but I don't think flask of charm cloud will work on them. You could a...

Re: Spoilers! Staying a Level 1 Mage as long as possible gam

Speaking of "homemade" challenges, an extremely challenging one came to my mind while playing with the level 1 mage: The Ultimate Challenge You must meet all of the regular challenges, except Hellbringer and Jack of all trades , without ever leveling up. Basically, you could never attack anyone, cas...

Re: Spoilers! Staying a Level 1 Mage as long as possible gam

Congratulations! Congratulations!!! Thanks a lot! :) A question about the locked doors: If you have 10 skill in elemental and then wear other items that raise elemental, I think you could get up to 15 or 16. You could then cast a level 3 or 4 lockmelt, I think. Can anyone confirm? It might make com...

Re: Spoilers! Staying a Level 1 Mage as long as possible gam

I decided to try your challenge, tungprc. To make things a bit more interesting, I also tried to meet as many "regular" challenges as I could. All in all, the game was much more tedious than challenging. Especially so during the endgame, since I had to rest after each and every enemy. 85 mana points...

Re: Bells = first experience? (Spoiler)

According to Randomizer's quest list, you get ~30 000 exp for doing every main quest. It's possible to skip a couple of them, but you would still end up level 10 or so.

Re: Bells = first experience? (Spoiler)

You have to turn in Ruel's book to St. Gilliam first to get the door open to the bell tree. Yeah, I forgot that. Pretty sad if that is actually the only thing preventing this "challenge". Also you would need to lockmelt or lots of lock picking and dense nimbus to reach some of the bells. You could ...

Re: Disarming traps without Skulduggery

I think there's one door in Hammerlorne Mine with no key on the way to the Crux. That's right. On the second level of Hammerlorne Mine, there is one door with a level 1 lock in the Bonebiter room which you have to pass to continue. Of course, one could easily bash it down without the Pick Locks ski...
