am right in the middle of it - playing it on hard ... Well, the level where I find Sheola. And here are some remarkable points. Since it might have the quality of Spoilers, hit SPOILER ... Thank you.
SpoilerShow
- Even, if I hit "import", I get a new character. I did not try it, but would "Toorum" be a valid play-option on this dungeon?

- Sheola is dead when I find here; but she keeps talking. You know, I HATE women talking too much ... ;)
- When I find the Blue Crystal in the library, Sheola won't be resurrected.
- If I drag Sheola into the first line, with my next move she gets pushed back into the second line again.
- Because she is and remains dead, this means three things: a) all skillbooks for the main character, b) no unnecessary food consumtion, c) a perfect mule for carrying stuff without slowing the party daown.
- The monsters in the library are very, very limited in their movement, which makes it pretty easy to beat them down.
=> Are those things probably the result of the latest game-patch by AH?

- Question about the hall with the trapdoors after "I" have proven myself and have become a "prophet" - is it true that there is no way to get out of there and becoming the perfect minin for Malbona? ;)
I keep you updated if more stuff appears. Up until now I may say: very nice storytelling, sweet challenges.

All the best!
Liam
Hi Kiam and thanks for trying this mod!
SpoilerShow
I couldn't reproduce the problem with a sheola that keeps on being dead, but I made a new version where it ought to be fixed. If you have an existing savegave from BEFORE you save Sheola you can use that one to continue. She'll be rezzed with hitpoints and skills. (if what I did was right, but I haven't had any problems yet). So please update your version of the mod and let me know if that worked.

Fighting isn't the main focus of this mod, so people who find out patterns fast can make those kills easy. True, but I didn't want to make it hard for new players.

About the trapdoors: ofcourse there's no way through. You aren't a real prophet, are you? ;)
Please keep me up to date with your progress, I'd love to hear about it.

Will do.

And I am not a prophet? I thought, my mother was joking ... :D

:(

The new file does not solve the issue - maybe, because I am already in a running game-session? If you like, I could send you my safe which is just ahead of the moment in which I would get to her.

All the best!

Hello there.

In the next Spoiler another huge and funny observation:
SpoilerShow
I played along with my latest save, which I produced before your update. So my Sheloa was dead.
Right. WAS.
At some point you have Malboa join your party. When he joins my party, he is dead. So my hero is joined by two dead so far, right?
And then, around the corner a small chamber with a blue crystal appears. When I hit it, Sheloa gets resuurected. Yes, reborn. She is alive all of a sudden! How awesome is that?
And Malbona? D-E-D - dead.
So, I played on with the saving I created on your older version of the dungeon; and in the spoiler things take the interesting course based on gaming on with the updated version of your dungeon.

All the best!
Liam

Hello there,

first of all: the "customer support" was and is EXCELLENT! Thank you, Mahric, for taking care of things.

A few minutes ago I happened to stumble into the boss-fight. Up until then I experienced one of the best, if not best, story-telling in a Grimrock-Mod. Really, I was very well entertained - by sweet riddles, a solid and nice story and background story, a very sweet nad lovely Sheloa. Thank you so much.

And the boss-fight ... In HARD it really is hard, and I wonder if I will be able of doing the job properly ... Looks like I'll have a couple of tries ...

All the best!
Liam

Sorry, just saw it.

Too late to help, but in time to wish you the best of luck with the "breathing dragons puzzle", designed by my youngest daughter!
