Crius Vindica & Target Practice?

OK, so I'm in the Crius Vindica lair and if you go all the way to the west, there is a room with a barrel of flight arrows and a target. When you shoot at the target, it shows you where your arrows land. In Book 3, there is a place where, if you hit x number of bullseyes, you get a secret something....

Re: Book III Character / Map Editor v1.0.1 (April 16, 2014)

Question: I'm using the Character Editor for Book III on a MacBook, OS 10.9.x. Looking for the directory where the datpak and character files are located. I'm not sure where to point the character editor to. Some help?

Thanks.

Alunder Question: Spoiler Alert!

OK, So I finally got into Astral Range and I opened a can of Whoop-Ass on Alunder and killed him. It was easier to kill him than even cockroaches. Rather anti-climatic after all the hype about him. Anywho, now I'm down in the dungeon and I've hit all the switches on the "second" side, but nothing el...

Re: Book III Character and Map Editor

I'm trying to run the Eschalon3Utils. I've downloaded the Mac version, installed every bloody thing on that page, followed instructions, installed via command line. Then, I installed X11. I already have XCode. But every time I fire up the Utils, it crashes X11. Any clues?

Quick Travel?

OK, I know I'm missing something simple here, but when I get to those globe markers, how to I access them to quick travel? It seems that the quick travel comes up the first time I click on the globe, but when I return, I'm just reading a statue. ???

mobile app please!

I would love to play the Eschalon series on my iPod Touch or my iPad. My biggest request? Map-building tools and a way to run fan-made missions. I used to play "Thief: The Dark Project" and I think fan missions gave that game a 2nd, 3rd, and ....zillionth life.

Re: COMPREHENSIVE Book III 'Wishlist' (List form)

@kreador: Aye. That's much better said. I did not know about the right-click from vendors, but you can't do that in your inventory, as you've pointed out. That needs to be a feature. Thanks for the clarification.

Re: COMPREHENSIVE Book III 'Wishlist' (List form)

Hi All, Just throwing my 2 cents in... I've looked through the Book III wishlist thread and agree with much of it. I've played the PC game "Thief: The Dark Project" and I can say that having a game editor and a place to post fan adventures for download/rating would catapult this game to cult status ...

Re: Stealth and thievery rant

I agree that stealth could be more than it is. Right now, a rogue is not a viable character. It's a wimpy fighter. Combine things like lockpicking/traps and combine hide in shadows/move silently. A rogue requires an @$$load of skill points compared to a fighter, who can just pile on the weapon and a...

UI suggestions

Keep Book II weapon/shield swapping. If you play a fighter in book one, you have to unequip your shield, then weapon swap to fire an arrow in a melee, then go back open inv and equip, re-equip the shield...pain in the neck. I much prefer Book II. One should be able to hit ESC until one has backed co...

Re: Wishes? Okay; a few of mine...

I'd like to see story/plot lines expanded, like many posters here. I've been replaying Book 1 and I'm convinced there is a great story behind Lorus of Eastleaf. Yes, I know there's a Seuss reference, there. But in this world, why does he have such an elaborate tomb? Why was he the greatest? What her...

Re: Now this is a new bug...

I'm running 1.05, on a Macbook, OS 10.6.5, 4 GB RAM. Never happened before, even on earlier version. Quite interesting, but can't leave that area because when you try to point the arrow "up" you get the attack icon (sword). I just quit without saving (I save very frequently, as I just reroll chests ...
