Yep, but that precludes getting the map from the guy in town - that quest either isn't accessible anymore, or is terminated. Same type of map however, a world map.

If you think face cloning is bad, listen to the game's voice-overs sometime. You'll hear less than 6 males, and probably 2 females for all of the game's NPCs. Even Oblivion (which is criticized for…

Sword & Board (shield) has far more utility than a staff in Risen, sad but true. There are no staffs with stats that equal a comparable combo of sword/shield, at least not that I've found. Add to…

I've got 60 separate saves covering all of Chapter 1, and the character has a Mage recommendation, and the ability to volunteer to the Order (Order 4/4). I also have earlier saves all the way from…

One comment regarding money: if you plan on going the Mage route, save up and don't squander it. Training your skills up at the start of Chapter 2 is a serious drain on LP and gold. True, it is a…

I was under the assumption that mages also had training limitations on things like swords. i.e. they can't max them to 10, along with some other select weapon types. Read that in the forums here,…

Have to agree there JDR.

Had they made it a first tier Rune, at least you'd have to expend resources of some type to use it. As it is, you find a ring, and put it on/take it off at will. …

I'm playing through as a (semi) pure mage this time, and said Yes to Lockpicking and Alchemy, and No to pickpocket and gut animals.

I think if you deny him payment, he may refuse to fight you (regardless of whether or not you defeated all the camp fighters first). I didn't try however - I challenged him and beat him, and then…

I get that on some doorway edges mbuddha, and I don't even have AA on. Probably a symptom of NVidia drivers, or somesuch.

Risen still runs better on my computer (with this improved graphics tweak) than even Oblivion, which is years old now. I think it does take advantage of some newer GPU functions, which is a good…

Yes, there are respawns of flora/fauna within the same chapter. However the rarer ones do not respawn, ever (like crown).

Leveling - From Casual to Completionist

Posting this just as much for discussion as to satisfy a curiosity I have about the game's chapters, and how fast the player progresses.

I've seen other people post that they were afraid they'd…
