Good fun & puzzles.

Right. Since Bastion Spire existed for at least a couple hundred years, the original architect would be long dead. But the cabin still belongs to his family. Benjamin would be a descendant of Vern.

Regarding the missing preposition... Where was that?

Hehe, no. I meant where in the game? I built a couple dozen maps and can't remember where that was...

Oh! :D

In the log in Benjamin's cellar, where it tells you what you need to know to solve the puzzle.

I just found your tombstone in the Greymurks. Very funny - am really enjoying this mod.

I cannot figure out the wizards tower. I just go up stairs that ultimately go nowhere, I'm having a serious senior moment...lol. I cannot figure out what I am missing or what to do, can I have a spoiler or clue of some kind?

The top floor has a picture of a man in front of a broken barrel. Go back downstairs and smash the barrel on the first floor. Then go back upstairs and walk through the door that apppears.

No, not at this time. I wanted to, but this mod is too huge already, so I had to limit it. Maybe at some point in the future I'll come back and add it in.

I just replayed Book III with all five mods (Alchemist's Tower, Rockhammer Mine, Rockhammer Small Dungeons, Sanctum, West Mirkland) and found it wonderful! The mods double the game length, are clever, beautiful and laden with goodies -- and Sanctum gives a fitting ending to the game.

Are you still planning to add more maps to the Bastion Spire mod?

Yes - I have 3 outdoor maps left. I'm hoping to finish it up by the end of October.

Ok, so I finally got round to starting another play through of Book 2 this week and I'm now at the point were I'm ready to tackle the new content from this mod.

So after spending an hour wandering the new maps killing Taurax I decided to head on over to the wizzards tour to pick up the quest only to find I can't even get up the path.

As soon as I read the riddle a book immediately seemed to be the obvious answer but I have several on me yet nothing happens, I also have variations on that (scroll, partchment, etc).

Slightly embarrising that I seem to be the only one to get stuck this early in the story but I'm gonna have to ask for a hint :oops:
