Re: The Bard - Intro Guide

Great list rakenan!

I’m about to start a new game with 3 bards, a rogue (to be Dragoncaller), and 3 casters. This info will certainly be useful! Just for fun I’m going to RP the three bards as having horn preferences of fire, ice and holy.

Re: Thoughts so far...

The game actually has a fully fleshed backstory that plays almost no relevance in the game, except maybe to help explain some of these things! The island we’re on was once a prosperous kingdom. There were gods and race wars. Then everything went to trash, kingdom fell, survivors fled, and so much ti...

Re: Cannot level up or save

I’ve had to rely on the auto-save many times! The game glitches every now and then for me but that seems to fix it all, I should probably have reported when so Icetear could look into it but once I figured out the game has an auto save of sorts (the first time scared me because I hadn’t saved in a l...

Re: Do I Need a Bard?

The great thing about Paladin spells is that they don’t expire, except for camps and anti-magic zones. The Warrior’s few extra hits isn’t enough to overdo the Paladin’s spells, in my experience, and this is especially true in the expansion where things have massive HP and can take hits. I think it’s...

Re: One Character Party?

This question still intrigues me. I was going to make another attempt at save-scumming a solo rogue but there is no way I see to get around the infamous lava walk without magic. A paladin wouldn’t have enough SP to cast that many full heals, Bard’s song won’t cut it, item usage is insufficient if la...

The game is based on the Bard's Tale 1-3 and the Bard's Tale Construction Set.
What was the thought behind half-elves becoming high-men and half-orcs becoming barbarians? Is that a translation thing, or just done for the illustrious backstory which is barely mentioned in-game?

Re: Force open

I'm pretty sure it's just strength. Luck helps reduce damage taken from traps. My low-luck Paladin brute was usually able to force open random post-battle chests when my rogue was KO'd and I didn't want to spend spellpoints on trapzap.

Re: Quick starting monk guide as of Silver Sword 2.5...

Icetear may have to give the definitive answer, but I'll take a swing based on my play experience. Dwarven to-hit bonus does not stack on monk's unarmed attack because the bonus acts as a modifier on an equipped weapon. It likely doesn't qualify for the monk fist weapons, either, since fist weapons ...

Re: The Rogue - Intro Guide

I think it should be added that in spite what the guide says, humans can’t be rogues in the current version of the game (2.75, no expansion bought, yet) - could be also a change that happened as the game evolved? It’s a pity that no good ‘ranged’ races like humans (add the + to dex) or elves can be...
