Strange Device



  • I have a QUESTION here.
    If you make your character archtype a rogue, sometime in the game you'll find yourself having a STRANGE DEVICE. This has happened to me every time I am a rogue. You apparently can't use it on Seldane doors which won't budge - (well, it hasn't worked for me). If you double click on this so-called STRANGE DEVICE then it says "Feed to whom?" (You can "feed" it to any object!?!?)
    I HAVE NOT got the STRANGE DEVICE mentioned in Slayer's Guide to Cythera, which actually DOES work on Seldane Doors.

    A bug?
    I would really appreciate an answer to this mystery which has been bugging me.

    Thankyou.

  • I've heard of a strange device that Emesa hands out that is really a food item. Also, there is a "Strange Rod" which controls the computer's CD player, but that doesn't match your description.

    I'm quite sure I didn't get this so-called "strange device" from Emesa - I think I got it very early on my journeys. And why should it be called the Strange Device? Why should Emesa give it out? After all, you can "feed" it to any object!
    And why am I getting it only when I am a rogue?

    P.S. I don't see the point of the "Strange Rod".

  • Beatrix is right there is a strange device i got it to after i left a cave in the northwest
    of cythera.and i gave it to an item by accident and don't know what it did.

    OK, something really funny is going on here. I think it's a bug - I didn't get my "strange device" from the northwest cave. I wonder why all the "strange devices" we've been talking about all look the same......

    P.S I only just discovered my "strange device" doesn't cure hunger.

  • Yeah it is weird , my character isn't even a rogue.(i wonder if it does something to an
    item if you feed it to one.Its weird also that we both got the same object.also , my
    character just had the device when he left the cave(he didn't have it before)

  • Where's the strange rod? The things you need to get into Seldane's room are two black discs. They are just outside the big archway.

  • If you get a lot of food from Emesa and choose the "divide food" option from the bottom right corner of the screen, you get the strange device in your inventory. However, it doesn't work properly, and you can feed it to you or your party members. It doesn't cure hunger. Yet another bug...

  • And what about the strange rod?

  • The strange rod is propably just a quick way to access your CD drive in order to insert your music CD's so you can hear different background music. I never tried it though.

  • The strange rod is in LKH. Go to the west of the room with the conjurer's triangle. It is in the desk.

    I only know that it ejects the CD in there if you tell it to.
