Help...i Just Started And I'm Dying Of Poison!



  • Well, this game looks cool, and so I start off. Hello, Hector, let's hang out together. Hey, look, there's a hole in the floor of this cave! Wow...ratlizards? Hey, we're poisoned!!

    Yes, i managed to get myself poisoned twice already, and have barely left my room in the castle. Is there any way to heal in this game? I found and used a healing and antidote potion in the central hall, but now that they're gone there seems to be no way to a) neutrilize this poison, so I stop dying! :cool: heal my and Hector's wounds, so we stop dying!

    Thanks...

    p.s. As I said, I just downloaded this game, so am not even registered yet...is that why?



  • Well, until your character gains a bit more experience, there are a few areas you might want to avoid, such as ratlizard caves and swamps. Later on, there's an item or two you can pick up that help out a lot with poison. You can also learn to make antidote potions, or cast healing spells. Some people that will join up with you can help, too. Once you register, Alaric can heal you up in a jiffy.

    If you get really stuck, Slayer's Guide is an excellent resource. Solving the game yourself is a lot more fun, though.



  • If I get poisoned, then I generally cast the Directed Nexus spell and get Alaric to heal me, but as has been stated, you can't do this unless registered. I believe that the Unguent item has a chance to cure poison, but I'm not sure (these aren't too hard to find, though).



  • Thanks, all. I'm heading over to register now...healing is good to have available!

    And hey, here's an oddity...I found a dead body in a collapsed room, and a secret passage. But I can't talk to anyone about it to see what it might mean. And he had some wierd liquid on him...I can't talk about that, either? It is just a red herring, or am I missing something in how to talk to people?

    Well, the dead body with the liquid on him is kind of an omen of things to come... the rest you have to find out on your own, it's more fun that way ;)



  • I believe that you can talk to the Odemian judge for some clues, but I don't recall exactly what information you get at that stage.

    The entire game is in fact a mystery. Essentially, your job is to figure out two things: 1.) Should you support this weird Alaric guy, and 2.) If you support him, how do you heal him, or if you don't, how do you destroy him.



  • If I recall correctly, there's a potion that cures poison in the room you appear in after casting directed nexus. Not sure which color though, and it's only good for one time.

    Aye, many things have changed, many things have stayed the same, and somehow I find myself here again.

    Nice seeing you, cache.

  • According to Slayer's guide, it's the purple potion (the Nexus room is also the one you start the game in).
