Re: Replaying Book I to get ready for Book II

I designed a nefarious rogue character, looking forward to the extra critical hits (nefarious damage). Hiding in shadows works very well, but to make it worthwhile, it's best to have a good ranged attack. Polishing my space bar while waiting for rubes to walk by me got a little tedious. Also consid...

Re: Replaying Book I to get ready for Book II

For a rogue you want to start with light armor, a melee weapon, pick locks, and maybe lore to identify the loot. Then add a range weapon when you can train for those hard to reach monsters. I've never needed Lore until late in the game. I'd rather go with Skullduggery, Spot Hidden, or Move Silently...

Game release plans

Might be a bit of a dumb thread, but do you all have a game release ritual? I usually fire up the game right away and then get a quick look at it and then print and read through the entire manual before I create my "real" character that Im going to use. Its nice to sit outside with a cup of coffee o...

Re: Book II Midnight Release?

Oh well we have waited this long I can wait another night :cry: I completely understand about the difficulty of release at mignight, not to mention your own support having to work at 3am in the morning. I think this just means people are really excited to start playing your game. Thanks again for co...

Re: What kind of character will you use in Book II?

I usually play either a warrior or ranger type. I just liked to be able to wear the heavy plate armour (Which I have a 15 century plate suit in my house by the way) and use the heavy weapons. But rangers with their bows are very cool too. Thinking of trying something different this time around...but...

Re: Replaying Book I to get ready for Book II

Ok I think I will put some points into Dodge and pick up Hide in Shadows. I like my rogue to be versed in both sword and bow, that was while outdoors you can use the bow from distance and use sword indoors. The bow is difficult to use in a dungeon in darkness. Not sure I wanna use magic with my rogu...

Re: Goodies

I would love that too, the more goodies the better but I realize its probably not cost effective for a small studio like Basilisk to do.....

Re: Replaying Book I to get ready for Book II

Hexhammer, your English is just fine, thanks for sharing 8) I would think when you purchase the DVD you can download it at the same time so you can play before the DVD arrives. Unless you just want to wait for the package to start. Im getting the DVD but will start playing as soon as I can download ...

Replaying Book I to get ready for Book II

With book II a few days away I decided to play book I again. Granted I dought I will finish in 3 or 4 days unless I take off work a few days. Anyone else doing that too? I only played the game all the way through once though so I remember parts of the game but not all. Trying a pure rogue this time ...

Re: Quick Poll - DVD or CD?

Im assuming even if we buy from your directly it helps increase your sales to get book II on the popular download sites. I used Direct2drive sometimes and they have book I on there so I will send them an email asking if they are going to have Book II. Yes, buying it directly from us gives us the bi...

Re: Risen (PC)

Interesting write up sirdilznik, now you make me want to play this game now! I have not tried it yet but its on my "to-play" list. I liked Gothic 1 ok, Gothic 2 quite a bit and thought 3 was average after the fan made patch. For some reason I always got bored about half way through them and never fi...
