Okay, I'm reliving an old, old Dragonlance trilogy I wanted to. You know, AD&D before Baldur's Gate?

I'm in the third game of the series and I'm stuck in the Luminari Tower, after you get out of the city of the sea elves.

I've found the basement of the tower with the first hidden teleporter, but I can't find the second teleporter leading to the wizard Fastillon at the top of the tower is.

The hint is to look under the porch, and I've been trying to approximate where another hidden door must be to be under the porch, but I think my guesses are wrong.

Anyone remember?

Hmmm... guess no one remembers! :)

Hm, I had many responses to my Bard´s Tale I question. That means the guys here are old enough. But I never heard of the game you mentioned, sorry. Was it popular?

Hey, everyone knows the Gold Box series. My recollections on that particular puzzle are vague at best, however - except that everyone who's ever played the game seemed to always have trouble passing it.

The only bit I remember is that your group had to have that 'flashback' thingy three times before you could proceed - heck, I just don't /remember/.

I have absolutely no idea, but I was a DragonLance fiend for about 3 years (and have about 75 books to vouch for it). Where I can I find a copy of this game?

Rakso: I'm sure you can find a walkthrough somewhere on the internet... just search with Google or something

By Rakso, Patriarch & Rules Ayatollah (Rakso) on Monday, November 19, 2001 - 12:05 am:

The walkthroughs aren't clear, and I found ONE obscure post on Google that finally helped from a Dragonlance forum.

You can download all these old games free at www.classic-trash.com

i didnt even know there was a DL game?

I remember the original Pools of Radiance and it's sequels, and the Darksun and Kara-Tur (sp?) games, but not DL...sorry

btw, you have to remember that Bard's Tale was far more popular than the later AD&D games, that's why responses are easier (ya know, i never did finish 2...those riddles in that one dungeon baffled me til I gave up)

By Rakso, Patriarch & Rules Ayatollah (Rakso) on Tuesday, December 04, 2001 - 10:00 am:

Hmmm... I finally found it.

Wasn't THAT old at the time, so I never caught anything except Buck II and the last Dragonlance.

Funny thing, you could finish the game without that dungeon. :) I did the first time.

AD&D goldbox games were the shiznit back in the day. I still play em over and over again. The FR series were balls out mostly.

Anyone ever, for fun, use a hex editor on one of those things and give your characters full stats and levels?

Bards tale was MAD old, a few years before the gold boxes time. That was back when Wizardry and Dungeon Master still had some fight left in it.
(Wizardry just put out a new game BTW)

Now Ultima, that series went through mucho changes. Ahhh old school 'puter RPGS. The crack my early teenage mind used in between game sessions on fridays nights before MTG existed...

Hey, Dungeon Master (FTL) still kicks ass!

sorry I didn't look here before I could have helped out, next time you need this type of help I will help as soon as I can

By Rakso, Patriarch & Rules Ayatollah (Rakso) on Tuesday, December 11, 2001 - 03:17 am:

Well, I finished the game.

You have any Civ3 tips? ;)

By Kirdape3, the Court Jester of Beatdown (Kirdape3) on Tuesday, December 11, 2001 - 11:47 pm:

How is Civ3, btw? I've seen screenshots, and am a devoted fan of Civ2, but from what I'm hearing the third go-round isn't as good as the second.

It's okay and I like the new unique strengths and units. I just don't like the lack of movies every time you build a wonder, and I think Alpha Centauri was better.

The combat system is still too simple, but I think the people who don't like it prefer the old emphasis on combat.

By Serra (Serra) on Wednesday, December 12, 2001 - 10:01 am:

I assume you mean the new Alpha Centauri? Ever play the old one? The combat system was odd...you were on a game board almost with hexagon shaped spaces I think. I can't even remember if it was fantasy or sci-fi, but I had it on my Apple IIc.

Anyway, if anyone loves old-school games, try Wizards and Warriors (if you haven't already)...modern day graphics and interface, but with the older feel (made by whatshisface from the Wizardry series...I think SirTech canned him, so he went off and did his own thing...Bradley (Yeldarb).
