Re: useless mages?

Yeah... so on level 3 now with still no spells... I have looked up the spells and they dont work without finding them first, and they cant hit with any kind of weapons at all, and my front line guys just died since I am basically playing with only 2 characters. Mages just dont seem to work out at a...

Re: Pretty easy party setup - almost no challenge

2 archers would mean either of the front characters would have to discard the shield, or he'd have to stumble around in the dark (which actually is not that dark at all). Yep, I never realized how much ambient light there really is until I started my Toorum run. No room for a torch or caster weapon...

Re: Pretty easy party setup - almost no challenge

I have nearly the same party, except I've got the fighter as a swordsman (just to have the fun of picking up weapons) and missile/thrower in the back. I agree with others that both thrower is going to make it tough on weapon availability. The strength bonuses from throwing barely make a difference i...

Re: Food Issues

I had troubles again when entering the last 3 levels. I had zero food left and all my characters were starving. I've been running through level 9, but it seems I spent more food hunting the buggers down and kill them than they're worth. Their respawn timer is very slow. But it turned out not to be ...

Re: Reluctantly have to quit this game at Level 4

i would have thought portal required even more manual dexterity,on some levels you had to fire 2 portals whilst falling and twisting. also i cant think of any gate key in level 4 unless you mean the cog key(and you dont need that to get to next level). stick with it. I think she means the scroll yo...

Re: Brilliant game up til Level 9. I won't be finishing it.

I don't know why, but I just hate endless respawning. It's simply annoying. I didn't hate LoG because of it, but I just couldn't believe they had to use it in the game. Although my first playthrough took almost 20 hours (yes, twenty, I guess I was looking for secrets pretty intensively :)), I didn'...

Re: Grimrock with hex tiles

The dungeons in LoG are made of square tiles, because that's how Dungeon Master did it. And Dungeon Master did it because computers back then weren't fast enough for anything else. But Grimrock has a real 3D engine. It could be modified to use hexagonal tiles. Hex tiles are usually seen in top-down...

Re: Reluctantly have to quit this game at Level 4

Wow, thanks for all the offers of help. Will be trying the suggestions today in addition to starting a new game...because my characters are about to run out of food and "maybe" that is slowing them down. Being hungry does not slow them down. Being overloaded can (little snail symbol on their portra...

Re: Any way to recreate a quest item or to locate it on the

Hi there, I am hoping that there is a way to recreate a quest item or to locate its position on the map once you have picked it up. I didn't know that I needed the four scrolls for the level 4 puzzle and I dropped them somewhere. I have been able to find most of them, but I can't find the last one....
