Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

The log references Vern (not Benjamin) (but you know that :D ) Missing a preposition: "...that was hidden the crack of a large..." Good fun & puzzles. Mike Right. Since Bastion Spire existed for at least a couple hundred years, the original architect would be long dead. But the cabin still belongs ...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

A couple observations, Troy: 1. The book at Humfrey's references Vern Farwick of Nightwood. No sign of Vern Farwick in Nightwood, but south of Nightwood is the house of Benjamin Farwick, whose cellar is inoperative (the stairs do not highlight when the cursor is over it). 2. From the "summer cottag...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

Sorry, I'm probably thick, but... what does the following mean: Note: if you want to use an existing character, you can skip step 2, but it will reset the 2 official maps listed above. What do you mean "...but it will reset the 2 official maps listed above."? TIA. The mod makes changes to 2 officia...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

v0.9.1 is now available! See initial post in this thread for the updated link and a list of changes. This new version should work much better, plus there are 4 new maps (2 outdoor, 1 large dungeon, and 1 small interior map). Enjoy! Of course, when you install this update, all of the mod's maps will ...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

My opinion, as someone who prefers exploring to bashing, is that this mod doesn't need its difficulty ratcheted up any further. Good to know. Thanks! I'll try to balance any adjustments I make. I'm not too concerned with making the Misty Pass map harder, though, because I did NOT want players to ta...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

Hm. Guess maybe I need to add more Taurax to the army. :) Wonder how many more I can add before the engine barfs...? Against Supernova, more Taurax won't help. It would have to be more spread out Taurax so you can't get so many on a screen. And I advise against more Taurax on that map, since it's a...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

I just found a couple of small bugs re: the Trusty Sword Tavern in Western Midlande. I took a screenshot and can send it to you if you want. First, the mini-map goes all haywire when you go downstairs. The areas you walk through work fine, but the whole map has some odd background stuff going on. S...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

So, I no longer have the Chancellor's Sword and I had "to take the long way home", but <grumble, grumble> I was directed to look for "a weapon" and I found what would more correctly be termed, hmm, "the ultimate means of destroying Kuudad (or Mistfell)". Maybe be more explicit about what the goal i...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

You "cleaned out" Misty Pass? Whoa - epic! What character build are you using? I'd love to see the stats on it. I did, too, actually. Invisibility + Supernova + 5 MP/turn regeneration + copious Fortify Mana potions. Hm. Guess maybe I need to add more Taurax to the army. :) Wonder how many more I ca...

Again, many thanks for both the mod and the hints!
I don't think there is one. You should be able to make it all the way up to the throne room in level 5. Just use the staircases to go from floor to floor.

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

5th level? yes: Chancellor's Sword, Base damage: 2, Weight: 1.0 lbs, Value: 100 (sounds rather like an oversized letter opener :D ) Ah, so you did miss it... :) The sword is NOT the weapon the Taurax are looking for. It's the key to finding the weapon. Too easy? after cleaning out Misty Pass, yes. ...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

I got both errors/problems -- the not-opening door in Misty Pass and the endless loop in Bastion Spire (plus a few empty maps). Good to know another round of fixes is on the way, because it's a fascinating secondary game. Thanks! Both of those problems are fixed here, and will be available in the n...
