Re: Some issues

You have to have the lycanthrope pelt in inventory to get the dialog option. Does not matter. I had the pelt. The original quest is forfeited the moment you claim to believe the Magick shop owner. I can see why this was done (Xed does not want him to know anything), but still thing it is the wrong ...

Some issues

Played on wine waiting for the linux version to be posted. Just some things that came up. Do not get me wrong, I love the game, but I still have some remarks. - Love the ambiance in general, even the the game sometimes seems to much hack n' slash (perhaps i should try a more stealthy char). - The ni...

Re: Hardcore mode, diseases, curses, and cures

It would be more interesting, however, if you would be allowed to save with disease inside cities. This way you could at least timely suspend the game while at the same time not losing challenges like true healer.

Re: [Resolved] Not working under wine

Indeed it works under wine 1.0.1 on debian as well. I feel dirty for downloading the windows demo though. Another comment: I guess it has been brought up before, but a 1024x600 resolution would be nice for all the people with netbooks. I got it to work by using the hack 1024x768 emulation available ...

Re: NEWS ITEM: October 20, 2008 - Third monster profile is up

Scary plant... Don't forget to change "long-rang armor piercing" into "long-range armor piercing" in the final version. I think "in only most remote" sounds better if changed to "only in the most remote". Also I'd change "7 Armor Rating" into "Armor Rating 7" but that's debatable. Oh..getting pedant...

Re: NEWS ITEM: October 27, 2008 - Final monster profile is up

Thanks for the reply BW. Yeah I noted some names were made up (and the grammar of the Latin is sometimes probably wrong too, although I forgot most of that). Somehow the lay-out bothered more than that though. But OK, I won't go on about it :) But I do like to say, more generalizing, and especially ...

Re: NEWS ITEM: October 27, 2008 - Final monster profile is up

This is nitpicking a bit, but I'm a biologist and I just have to say it... Could some learned and diligent scholar maybe do some editing of the Encyclopedia and change the format of the scientific names to some more accepted format? The genus names are traditionally written (except in bad gardening ...
