No idea if that actually leads to finding out more about it, though. All I know is that theres an imperial spy in the tavern that I can talk to once I figure out a way to weaken the dragonclans to allow the imperium to reclaim Salum for themselves.

anyone else annoyed that you can't have 8 authority even with passive buffs? Can't get all the deputies,which is pretty stupid.

boys, never play late at night.
i saved *after* recruiting the tough guys in lumen instead of before, now their quest is just too tough and i'm stuck carrying them around forever. at least they pack quite a punch in fights.

Spending 10+ days finding the correct node out of 34 that contains the outlaw camp. Ofc its right on the edge of the circle so I didnt scout it until I spent way too much time in the wilderness, costing me most of the profit of the contract. :negative:

Managed to steal 2 Beasts of Burden from a random encounter on my way back.
:dealwithit:

Ahhh also make sure you take the companions from lumen when doing the dwarf quest. If you tell the that you will take them later they will disappear and you won't be able to finish the quest. Fuck....too many buggy/broken quests,it keels the fun of the game.

Eh, its not that bad. Just means you have to pay a few more wages, which are usually made up for by the random trade goods you find while exploring. Overall I find myself savescumming a lot less than in both sunless sea and battle brothers.

So, about the bounty in Avernum that you solve within the city, there's a haunted Warehouse and, once inside, theres a Skillcheck that requires a Dwarven Background, having Garrik or having >10 Perception. I fill 2/3 of those, and it states it only requires one of them. I get the line about noticing the draft of air, but nothing else is happening, and after leaving the warehouse (which is the only option), the quest simply fails. I still have the option to ask around in the neighborhood, but I gain no new information whenever I try that.

There is two lines,then you detect that there is hidden room with some weirdo that summons demons. You need scrying or what eva was called. A wizard skill and maybe the item equipped on the caravan.

The higher tier merc contracts that have a huuuuge radius and 3~ fights you have to do are awful. It just makes me never want to do them again. They really need to find a UI solution to that whole rigamarole of finding the fights with multiple nodes and being able to keep track of which nodes you already cleared.

It works fine. Did you actually succeed with the dreams?
What dreams?? I don't get any. I get some even that take -1 morale and vigor when successful checked.

You should eventually get an event where you have a dream where you're wandering in a wood or whatever. You have to face the entity and succeed at a massive will check. This continues until you succeed it (well it continues when you succeed it too, but that's besides the point).

I remember it from the early access version that i played a year ago. But that shit doesn't trigger now. I am like 1000 days in the game. Could be place specific or something.

I've gotten it on every playthrough just wandering around. The lore does say the wind fades off as you get further away from the SW, but I've seen those events all over the world.

I get the wind events but not the dream ones.

Ah alright, will try to come back at a later point then. Companions are still all Level 2 and I havent finished any of the companion quests yet. Just picked up Skornar and Nedir, I fully expet Gorgoro to piss off sooner or later, so its nice that Skornar can take his place.

The best mage is a dragon girl,she is on the road that goes to devin,north from the crossroad. But don't go there with transport missions since you will need to take her south,fast.

Crifta will also tell you about the secret room. Not sure if it just requires having her or having done her storylines.

I picked up all 8 companions, only one missing is Eylani (unless they added new ones recently, I think there is only 9). I went into the warehouse with all combinations of companions, so maybe its an issue of loyalty or needing to progress their storylines a bit more. Not a big deal, not much to do in Avernum or with the tribes right now anyway. Will go investigate the Yrgs a bit and see if they make suitable mounts for a combat/slavery oriented comitatus. Lizards don't seem worth it at all, sadly.

What's the best location to pick up a dwarven compass? Saw a few locations where I could sell one, but haven't found one for my caravan just yet.
