Abydos Ghost



  • I was in Abydos at night and I saw this ghost who wouldn't say anything to me. Has anyone else seen this and who is he/she/it and does he/she/it have anything to do with the story?

  • The ghosts only respond to input about their former leader, and the city they lost. They just add to the effect really, and aren't necessary to complete the game. :)

    And so the problem remained; lots of people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches. Many were increasingly of the opinion that they had all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that the trees had been a bad move and that no one should ever have left the oceans. - Douglass Adams



  • Yup... you know where the secret entry to the underground part of Abydos is, right?

  • Oh, yea, that reminds me, after you do go down there is a passageway to the right (characters left/east). At the end of the passageway there is a secret door to another room, but I could never find another door or anything off of it. What purpose, if any, does the secret room have?

  • Whoa...can anyone read my question? I posted, by I can't see it. Not ony that, but on the main Cythera Web Board page, it says I posted. I also get cut off on the New chronicles/New file 3/5 page. Is this happening to anyone else?

    Sometimes this happens to me, and 50% of the time it's because the page was cached. Press the 'reload' button. However, sometimes I've found that my post is gone - it can be very annoying, especially if you spent some time writing it. (I recommend copying every message you post, and then checking. If it's not there, you lost nothing.

  • Wierd, I can see my posts today. Maybe it was just that one bit of time that it didn't work.
    (but now I can't see any of the New chronicles/New file 3/5 page, dangit)

    Anyway, does anyone know what purpose, if any, does the secret room have?

    Also, now that I think of it, is it possible to harm a ghost? I would swing with the Sword of Heros, and always miss. I can't remember if I tried the Mystic Spear or magical damage of any kind, but I think I did.

    Also, does anyone know how to kill Alaric? What about Magpie, the "fool"? I heard some talk about it when I first joined, but when I try for Alaric, he just runs up and casts a killing death strike. Then I run from the delta-room, ask him to heal me, attack him again, and get killed again. Repeat. With Magpie, he goes into a casting spree and I can't ever hit him to hurt (if you understand what I mean). Any suggestions?

  • The ghosts will respond to words about their former leader/killer (a topic of much discussion (double sp?) here at the webboards.) they will also respond to words about the little red-headded fella downstairs.

    As far as I know, the extra doors are just to keep you on your toes. i've basically searched the room top to bottom (in 2d terms :) ) and there are no secrets (just another red herring i suppose)

    As far as killing Alaric... (disturbed voice) why???
    Ok, if you really wanted to, I suppose you would have to blast the guards with fireball/heroe whak'em.
    Then try to deathstrike Alaric up close or (better yet) shoot him with those mystic arrows that were conveniently left for you in a little room somewhere in LKH (i forget where, just keep looking) and shoot'em/fireball'em.

    Go Get'em!!

  • I killed a ghost with the Sword of Heroes. It just disappeared, like a demon.

    I'm back!

    Speaking of the spell Fireball, for some reason, now whenever I cast it, it kills only me.

  • You have to cast it far away, or else it'll just hurt you and your teammates.

    "Fireball" is for crowd control only ;)
