A few small issues that I've noticed whilst playing through v7 with a very average point buy party of 5 + Elmo. Welkwood Bog (Level 1-2), The Lareth Moathouse fight + ambush (Level 2-4) and Hickory Branch (Level 4-6) have all been very interesting thus far. Lots of nice subtle and big changes noticed over v550. I'm just at the point where I can start basic enchanting/making wondrous items. I probably should've taken on Hickory Branch after Nulb in retrospect. The Dire Wolves (+others) and Ogre Shaman hit hard - AC 23 on my fighters wasn't enough. I chose to take the risk of resting. Does Survival / Spot / Listen affect the chances of resting in a dangerous area? Lord Hungous and Co - weren't quite as difficult when webbed (x2) and silenced. Strangely I don't believe he even tried escaping from the Web. Decimated my party when I didn't win initiative though Give him a Freedom of Movement Ring / Cape if you want to be really sadistic. The fight with his Sergeants outside the cave was a simple affair by comparison. Stealing Farmers You shouldn't be able to confront Otello about stealing until after you've received the “Stealing Farmers” quest from Filliken - after solving the “Cupid’s Arrow” quest. Should you confront him before - Otello will stop stealing - whilst Filliken will later mention he’s being stolen from. The quest is still solved normally though. Maybe if Otello only appears at night once you acquire the quest? Black Jay’s Dead Sheep Could this quest be offered only after you’ve returned his wife’s wedding ring? Black Jay would continue to be anti-social until the point where the ring is returned. The “How’s your wife, Jay” line which initiates this quest - is an odd opening statement to make as you’ve never found out his marital status. Not so after returning the ring. Agent Revealed / Traders Revealed / The Traders’ Courier Option 1 - the perfect scenario Force Jayfie to reveal why he’s altering the castle orders then claim the bribe from the Traders (Money, “Traders Revealed” quest) You can then get the Courier to confess and claim the second bribe (Money or Magic Shortsword, “The Traders’ Courier” quest) Option 2 - the bugged scenario Force Jayfie to reveal why he’s altering the castle orders Immediately get the Courier to confess You can only claim the bribe from “The Traders Courier“ quest (Money or Magic Shortsword) You lose out on money and don’t get the “Traders Revealed” quest entry Agent Revealed / Lareth’s Gear / Assassin Trigger Wouldn’t it be better to change the conditions that trigger the Assassin? By the time the player has cleaned out the Moathouse - it’s likely that “Black Jay’s Dead Sheep”, “Traders Revealed” and “The Traders Courier” have been solved or partially solved in the case of “Agent Revealed”. The point being that it isn’t too difficult to expose Rannos and Gremag early in the game. Solving “Agent Revealed” for Burne and Rufus flat out blocks the Assassin encounter as they’ll no longer deal with you. The player misses out on reading the Assassins note and can’t accuse the Traders but can still force a fight with them for the Nulb encounter. As the Assassin is triggered by selling Lareth’s item(s) to the Traders - this means the player who’s solved the above quests would have to deliberately sell the item(s) – it seems like an artificial way of triggering this “surprising” encounter. I’ll often finish “Agent Revealed” after I’ve sold Lareth’s Boots, blackmailed and double-crossed the Traders. If that isn’t enough to annoy them you also gain the Moathouse Cleaner reputation - is it far-fetched to believe the Traders would pass that info on? Even the Courier mentions his report will be interesting. As it stands now it seems like a less-competent party has more chance of triggering the Assassin than a party which is more of a threat to the Temple – and that seems illogical.
