    Yes my grandparents are scotish background. Farrrrrr from home,not as bad as the Scots in Dunedain,New Zealand..a tad further from me.

    I just got the dialogue option after helping the girl,waiting for the items to arrive..

    back to Thrommel,I think in my testing,please check..Hommlet is OK at 'North' near Temple of St Cuthbert but not working if youtake him elsewhere-South&East. Crazy..

    The male line in my family goes back about 350 years to just outside of Glasgow, near Renfrew. So, we are looong time away from home.

    I never got a sword of answering in my party until humbe npc's came out.

    Mine are KIETHS I have been told...near Edinburgh...

    As for TOEE...same here with Humble NPCs...you can though without that,pick pockets when he joins to get some items of him. As NPC he doesn't attack when failed. I have to check this Thrommel glitch out more though.

    Highlanders! Where we came from, we were our trews. Though we can wear dresses if we have to...;)

    I generally recruit Thrommel for a couple of fights, then let him. Sans coulots, nowadays.

    Hah only "Kilts of persuassion +4" nah?? I don't have him fight only rescue,as for game challenge and xps,I prefer my Party has the fun not a part time warrior...^_* If desperate have him hack into the WOWisps as useful there since to darn hard to hit. Solution in party was to use 'Wands of Magic Missile 4/5(?)' created by Wizard. Very useful.

    Never heard of that place, altho I have heard of the city of Dunedin who's name comes from Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh ;)

    Edinburgh is the Saxon name, isn't it?

    The woodcutter had a shop that sold Excalibur once?

    Maybe I have used all the wrong dialog choices but after clearing deklo grove and finding the swamp lotus for the cure for amy quest I don´t get any dialog option with Tarim the woodcutter to buy stuff from him. Only a question for some reward and he answers that he has nothing...?

    If Excalibur was removed because it was too powerful for a game that ended at level 10 - wouldn´t now, with the level limit raised to 20, it be no longer overpowered for the late game?

    I think we can safely assume the woodcutter's catalogue business got removed from Co8 NC sometime ago......

    Adamantine plate armour kind of renders the drinking contest a farce.....

    I don't think you'll ever persuade Gaear "a +2 weapon is a nice reward for an 18th level pc" that Excalibur isn't overpowered....

    Yeah, it was never even in the original game. We'd catch so much hell for putting that in there.

    I thought the woodcutter still did offer good stuff for sale (at considerably longer wait times than the typical masterwork dude) after you fixed Amii. Just not Excaliber.

    I have never had him offering anything for sale.

    Looking at the script of the woodcutter 00025woodcutter.dlg in my game I had jumped from dialog line 633 (Reward?) to 660 (I´m a poor woodcutter and have nothing) with my lawful neutral party.

    Both the deklo grove and the cure for amy quests are completed in green.

    What else would I need to do to get him saying line 640 and offer me the items from his relatives shop?

    The woodcutters scriptlines are:

    I see no option that leads to 640. All lines before jump to line 660 (I´ve got nothing as reward). Has there been a change that prevents the woodcutter from offering the rewards? Or am I missing a condition that needs to be fulfilled for getting line 640?

    Upon reflection I think that that whole node was disabled, with the intention of getting back into it later. So yeah, there's likely nothing going on with Tarim's rewards atm.

    I think if we do re-enable them, they'll have to be toned down dramatically, and certainly no excaliber will appear.
