  1. I have gone into the arena and have gone to the left following the yellow banners, which is supposed to take me to the spectators' area. I go out and I see the guy in the hood, whom I'm supposed to talk to, but I cannot get down into the area where he is. He is down on the next level from where you come out of the first arena area, and I can't get to him. I have gone over every inch of this area, and cannot get down to where the hooded guy is. Where is the way down?
  2. Ah. Thanks. I've already completed that dungeon, but I still have the reflective ball, so I hope I should still be able to do it. It worked, and there was a Cheeki there, too! Thanks again. Please don't double post. Just use your edit button to add more information. ~Mopiece
  3. How do I find the Torture Cube, which is supposed to be in the dungeon? I assume that's Forthwrong's dungeon. I can't find the torture cube anywhere. Thanks.
  4. Any hints as to a good party composition to deal with the bears in Busybeak? I can't beat three of them with Boyle, Robin, Ingrid, and Hi'beru! Or is there a particular strategy to use with this party composition that I may be missing? Those bears are tough!
  5. I am hopelessly lost in the Depths of Fire. I think I have moved all the walls. I can't find any more buttons that are still active to move walls. But I can't find where the forge is. The only 2 cave entrances I find are the one that leads out of the DoF and another that leads just to a ledge where there is some money in a bag. I'm wandering all over, and can't find any other exits. Obviously, I have missed something. (I did find the goodie cave, though!) Never mind the above. I found some rocks I could walk over, that I didn't think I could! I think I have found the direction I need to go. Thanks, anyway. Don't double post. Just use the edit button to add more information to your post. ~Mopiece
  6. Is the house Rowen refused to enter (where Miles is supposed to be) the one she keeps saying is locked? I can't get past that dialogue. Is there something that needs doing before she will go in?
  7. I agree with Faerieschyld. I don't pay much attention to ratings. For one thing, I have found that my tastes are not the same as most people's. I like the Aveyond games because they are thinking games more than they are "action" games. Let's face it, the battles in Aveyond are tame indeed compared with a lot of other games. But you have to think to play these games. I also like the characters. So never mind the ratings. That's nothing but opinion, anyway.
  8. Oh! I thought that was the cupcake! Silly me! H'mmm . . . How to steal caramel apples from kids . . . heeheeheeeee! Thank you. (Now I feel really silly . . .)
  9. I have been all over Veldarah, in every house and shop, and I cannot seem to find the caramel apple to give to Jenna! My aging eyes are getting pretty bad! Apparently it is in Veldarah, from what everyone has said. I just can't find the silly thing! Would appreciate help!
  10. Kenneth, yes, difficulties are inevitable as we age. However, you can live with it. Just keep a young attitude. I am in pain every day, but I do not let it slow me down! I'm in my 60s, and back in college! So keep that young attitude, and you can defeat the inconveniences of aging.
  11. Feel free, UntoldReveries! No problem! Found Jebb -- like another poster in another thread, I didn't look behind the shops! D'oh! Found the map and after that the temple! Thank you all for your time and guidance.
  12. That is not the problem. I've been across the bridge and been to Clearwater. I've talked to William, who said he stumbled upon an abandoned temple in the forest. I have not been able to find it. All I can get to is the thieves' cave, the squirrels' cave and the lillies to pick for William's wife. I can't find a way to get anywhere further north, where I can see one squirrel wandering around. Where is the temple? And how does one get to it?
  13. Regarding how I feel about age: see my tagline.
  14. I got the quest to find the temple in Riven Forest, but I can't find it! I've tried everything -- looking for hidden entrances to caves, looking for paths through the woods. Nope. Help?
  15. Hey, I LIKE cheesy disaster movies! They're big fun! Their plots are all the same, involving many of the same characters (such as the President of the US, and sometimes other world leaders) or character types (the brainy outcast who turns out to have the answer, the grouchy old disgraced scientist who helps out, the handsome hero and the lovely heroine. And the special effects are such fun and scientifically impossible in real life. Big fun! How will the world end? Kudzu will take over everything and snuff us all out. [For any who may not know: kudzu is a very fast-growing vine imported to the southern U.S. from Japan to use as cattle fodder. It has no natural enemies here, and grows like crazy, taking over whole trees and whole houses.]
  16. Galahad, driven mad by his inner rage at having been turned into a vampire against his will, and entering the last stages of starvation, finally goes mad and gives in to evil.
  17. I thought that, while waiting for the Lost Orb to come out, I would go through all the Aveyond games in order. I'm stuck with Rhen's Quest. I have viewed the dragon in the cave, solved the nightingale quest and got the dragon bridle. When I go to the island to pick up Jack, I get the conversation about him being a dragon rider, but somehow the option to either break him out of jail or to leave him there does not show up! I'm not given the chance to choose; the conversation just ends with him still in the calaboose. Then when I try to talk to him again, I get the "scum" dialogue, and I can't get him out of jail. I've even gone to the extreme of uninstalling the game and reinstalling it (build , but that doesn't seem to have helped. Any suggestions? Have I missed something?
  18. Aha! I thought I had talked to someone I needed to talk to, but I guess not enough! Found it! Sorry . . .
  19. When I got to Venwood, playing in Build B, someone (or something) that was there before is not there now -- someone referred to by a little girl and an old man who make accusations against one of the party (I'm trying not to put up a spoiler). I'm referring to the one who took the book and placed it under the centerpiece of the town square. Any hint on where to find her, or has this little bitty side quest been done away with? I liked the idea -- it made one character in the party that I don't like very much a bit mad (which seems to be this one's default position). Bwahaha!
  20. At my age, being able to remember what I read would be a super power! But if I had to choose one, it would be teleport without error, hands down. Then I could go to someplace cool when it's hotter than blue blazes here in Florida, and I could go over and research documents in the General Archive of the Indies in Seville, Spain, any time I wanted to. And go lots of other great places, too, like visiting family or doing genealogical research in all those places I can't afford to go!
  21. I also would like to see Mel mellow a little. I would hope her experience would teach her something. I find her remark to the blind fellow on the Sinoa Plain particularly callous. I don't mind leveling up to be able to battle monsters at each segment of the game, or to do the final battle at the end. Heck, I beat Gyendal with just Galahad surviving in one game. It can be done. I like having to plot out a strategy, but I guess that's because I'm ex-military! I agree, though, that more thought could be put into what is in the chests or on the bodies, and that the reward should be commensurate with the effort. It is particularly distressing to have a battle where you get hit really hard and perhaps have one or two die, and then you open the chest and get something inconsequential, or you check the corpses and every last one of them has nothing. I also hoarded the Tinctura Hypericum that I found, to hold for the final battle. Also, it is my strategy to max out on healing potions and food items when I get to the point of having enough money to do so. I try to get through the game without having to use the gold in the gold goodie cave. I might need that more later on! In any battle situation, you have to get through with the logistics and supply that you have on hand, so you want to be sure you are well-supplied.
  22. No, it was her spells that weren't doing 1/10 the damage the others were doing with their weapons (but, again, these were goodie-cave weapons, so we have to factor that in). I didn't try melee with Lydia, but Stella really kicked booty with her Staff of Light. Is one of the strategies NOT to buy flowers or poems until all the ladies are in the party (that is, until after Lydia joins) and then go back to Gheladon and Stormbend and all and collect the points? Seems like that could make the outcome different, for sure! I have other saved games with other parameters all waiting -- some without the goodie-cave weapons and even one that I finished in expert mode. THAT is going to be really tough in GoN. The monsters in GoN KICK!
  23. In the final battle, I was in despair because three of the four got killed. However, Galahad defeated Gyendal and Stella singlehandedly! :dual: How? Buy weevil spells! Give Stella weevils; they drain her dramatically. She does keep pumping out healing spells, but eventually she can't keep up. Have plenty of elixir and have your surviving hero(es) take it often so they don't get killed by Gyendal's powerful spell. And keep hammering at Gyendal. Keep the weevils going on Stella, throw spider eggs every once in a while, and just keep hitting. It's a long slog, but it is possible to beat them even with just one surviving character. Now I want to see a mano a mano between Galahad and that wuss Hercules, to shut Herc up once and for all. I guess I didn't accumulate enough attraction points for a mate for Edward, and was LOL when he ended up having to marry that creature! (The Orc, not Lydia . . .) :laughing: I can see a future chapter: Edward's revenge. Edward forms an alliance with Lord Wallace and Gyendal to exact vengeance on his parents, who made him marry an Orc . . . :evil: Finally, I found Lydia's magic pretty useless. She couldn't make 1/10 the hits that the others can (but they were using goodie-cave weapons and armor in this particular set). Even though she had all the spells (from the goodie-cave spellbook).
  24. Right. There were two of the items instead of the five of before. May I download the LoT patch even though I got my copy of LoT from BFG? Gee -- all these initials and acronyms, I feel like I'm back in the Coast Guard!
