    Sounds fine to me, I just thought that since he already had the gauntlets he may have had more.

    This whole thing is your baby so which ideas you implement and how you go about doing it is entirely up to you, I'm just glad when you like my ideas.

    Just a random thought here, how many of us HoLers have made it into the mod in some way?

    I can think of:

    Xiao
    Frigo
    DE (I think, wasn't the Dark Elven Helm is his honour?)

    Add Bunny, Maximus, TONGSyaBASS and Wolfsbane to the list.

    Bunny is with Xiao. The rabbit even has a dialog.
    Maximus is mentioned in the Uncharted Cave as Maximus Stonewheel.
    TONGS is mentioned at the white magic shop in Tarant.
    The Wolfsbane quest wasn't ready for playing but he's already in there. Hidden.

    Although the Dark Elven Helm was a nod in his direction, I've found a role that would be perfect for DE - provided I can make it work right of course. Screw up the quest and you get banished - not to the Void but someplace almost as hard to get out of.

    As for me - so far it's been mentions that'll be removed someday. "rroyo just has me standing here...."
    I'm half-tempted to rename the Wheel Clan smith to rRoyo.

    Also - I offered Theorel a chance to get in on this with the Tesla Pistol, but he seems to have declined.

    At the very least after finishing this you'll need to add a grave for your sanity to the Fan Fens.

    And I completely missed the TONGS reference, so I'm off to Tarant.

    If you have hard time adding your name to the game add it on a grave. There are enough graves with the same descriptions already in the original game.

    Killed Kerghan and got the end slides instead of being sent back to Arcanum.

    Just get the exact url of the image you want to use for example your avatar is:

    http://www.terra-arcanum.com/phpBB/imag ... akatur.jpg

    And place it between tags like so:

    [code][img]http://www.terra-arcanum.com/phpBB/images/avatars/gallery//Arcanum-Followers/Krakatur.jpg[/code]

    And you get this:

    Voila!

    Hey Rroyo. I noticed Faithe has the same dialog as Magnus, the whole "What things can you make for me?" but she has nothing to actually make me. Also, Percilla Penn and Faithe both have identical dialog. Just thought i'd mention.

    Sorry Omnuscraft, I almost missed your post.

    I'll answer the second part of your comments before I head off to see what's going on with Faithe.

    Long before I decided to add Vormantown to my hack, I decided I wanted a female gunfighter - ala Helena Sent from Car-Arcanum. So I basically cloned Priscilla to create Faithe. That includes the dialog.
    There are a few differences here and there, but since I didn't know too much about properly creating a follower back then, I simply reworked a few lines to give Faithe a shady past and called the job done.

    Yes, there will be. In addition to what's planned for Cattan, there's a handfull of adventures planned for the northlands, the area south of the Glimmering Forest, south and east of Kree, Veloren Island, and Isle of Despair.

    Many of these will be simple little adventures to give me a bit of a break from the complex stuff I'm attempting, but will help fill in some of the large open areas of the map.

    In order - Thieves' quests, new followers, and some more work on Cattan. Beyond that, I'm not sure. I add the little stuff as it catches my attention.

    Edit: Looking for feedback about the Arbalest, the Reflection Spell and the Dark Elven Helm. Are they working alright?

    Reflection shield is normal,Arbalest is shooting arrows and is shown as a rifle (in the normal screen, not inventory).No idea about Dark Elven Helm.

    Dark Elven Helm is working exactly as it should. Although you don't get the pentagram animation or cursed sound effect when eqipping it.
