Thanks Scout. That worked. I didn't see the burners once I found the pot with the message.

I am trying to escape the palace and have come to a red cave and an impassable pool of water. I die if I go in. The map says cave worm.

I did get the shoes.

Pokey, look for a note on the floor of the worm cave. It should lead you in the right direction. I liked this last quest. Very nicely balanced.

 

Ahh, thanks Toni. I don't think I've come across a Victim's Hood yet either.

I did find the note. Guess I needed to read it again. Finally found the trigger and excaped the cave. Heading to the desert and plan to explore a bit.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Victim's Hood is found!

Old Watch Tower, "castle" icon directly N of Ostian. First room with beds, black blob that looks like nothing much on table in back corner. [Image Can Not Be Found]

I went through there once and didn't see anything so I checked again. Still nothing. I did find a big hammer call the Frost of something… nothing on that table but clutter.

Arrgh! Now another timed "carry the crate/barrel thing" with the worst gameplay function of the game, the Z key. Ugh. Shades of the opening dungeon and it's a main quest dealie. I've reloaded about 10 times and am giving up for the night. I'll try when I'm fresher.

Scout, I just hit that part as well. I don't think I'll be able to do it. The barrels are awkward to move.

Later… I thought I had all of them but I see there are two I missed. Try again tomorrow.

I got the barrels out of the way this time. The solution is to

keep moving the barrels closest to the fire toward the rock portion of the basement. It helps to look around really well at first and get the lay of the land. Then reload and enter and click through the dialouge screens and head right for the first batch of barrels closest to the fire. Pick them up and drop them down to the landing. Don't try to carry each one all the way to the rocks as the last one will usually blow up. After you get all 3 down down to the lower level, save and then carry them up the other side and drop them or throw them towards the rocks. Go back to the second spot which you'll know because the fire is closing in on the barrels. Move those toward the rocks. Then the third section (again, the fire will be lapping at them) and finally the fourth. You'll buy time this way and beat the fire. You have a little slack about going into the flames but if you run into the main blaze it will kill you.

Back in town and ready for the next quest. I think I'll go back to the Tower and get that hammer and maybe look around for the hood. I wonder if the game is starting to drop stuff randomly. I think it didn't before. My other thought is I went into that tower during the quest to break into the castle and steal the indregdients to make the poision. I didn't go all the way in as I was in a hurry and so I just popped through the door and back out. That might have reset the dungeon. Or I'm just not seeing the hood but I've scoured it pretty well.

I just got it too, on the 4th try. I carried all that would stay in my hands, but several dropped. Still had time to get them to a safe place.

If you go back to the Tower, are the guards still watching? I just went back on an old save, but found nothing. There aren't many rooms.

Did you find a place called Dusty Cavern in the desert? It seems to be just a black doorway, no entrance. Near it, a bit higher is a fancier door, but I can't get to it. There is an invisible barrier.

The hood's on the table, looks like part of the clutter. Only reason I found it was a meandering mouse cursor showed what it was.

If taking a screen shot & resizing & uploading to somewhere & linking here weren't such a major production, I'd take a pic w/ mouse cursor before I pick it up. Lemme reload & see if I can write better directions.

OTOH, maybe it's not the Victim's Hood. I was so excited & grabbed it, saved and quickly exited to post here. Haven't been back.

We'll see….

 

EDIT: ACKKKKKkkkkkk…I was mistaken! It is an Exile Hood. Fortify Magicka 25, Resist Fire 8%. So sorry I led you astray. 🙁

Ah...I was just going to suggest the Exile's Hood. I had that in my trunk and sold it to the blacksmith in Osian who is now wearing it.  No worries, just still out there to be found. I think Toni said he found it up in the Dark Forest which I haven't explored completely.

I just passed a 100 hours in this game. Mod. Game. I'm sick.

Pokey, I got into the Dusty Mine and when I left it said Strange Door on the inside. Don't remember another door above it though I do remember some weirdness when I was trying to get to it. Strange indeed.

I sold a bunch of armor to the blacksmith and later he was wearing a full set including a horned helmet. He looked pretty spiffy.[Image Can Not Be Found]

Not a lot of chance for training in Ostian, so I think I will head back to Erothin and hand off the shoes and sell some more stuff. Then we can move forward on the plan.

When I came back from Erothin, the blacksmith had changed to the exile robe and hood that I sold to him. It is interesting watching his costume changes.

I found another stone circle near the harbor. Below it is like the other one. The creatures in it are pretty immune to my fireball, but I have shock as well. Galleon and statue are done.

Wow. I thought I was in the endgame but no. Another endgame to go. The game is still fun but I'm in the mood less and less. I have to finish it though. Helmut is making me.

That was a bit confusing. I was fighting the wrong people at first but got to the end of the battle. I'm not sure I want to follow Arantheal. He is making me nervous.

Wolf! Wolf! (I'm the little girl who cried "Wolf" too soon)

Anyone wanna know where the Victim's Hood is really, really?  The hood that honestly & truly when equipped gives the stat bonus for having a full & complete Black (Dark) Death Armor? 

As Callisto wanted me to stay away longer, I decided to follow Sage Toni's vague memory of probably in the Dark Forest. Rode the GhostGuy's horse as it was still on the path.

Ok, here goes: The Catacombs of Lorthing. Sitting on the letter 'A' of THE DARK FOREST label on your ingame world map. To find it in the dark & rain, go along the road until you are just about opposite the letter 'A.' There is a slight break in the rocks up a slight incline – meander in there, eventually find ruins.

I swear, it's the hood. I'm wearing it. Right now!

Sheesh, this game is going to take me forever to finish if you guys aren't near the end yet. Haven't seen my castle, haven't started the poison quest although he mentioned it while I was playing last night. Musta been between my last save & a game lock cause tonight he still wanted to "think." Me too, a whole lotta game->locks->computer lately, couple of times a night. By the 3rd one, I give up & quit for the night.

(p.s. I hope I haven't suffered another brain misfire & reported the wrong hood, again [Image Can Not Be Found])

I'm half an inch away on the map making my way south through the Dark Forest. That was my next stop. Thank God it's somewhere.

Oh, this game goes on and on. I have a pretty good idea what the final battle will be now, mostly by process of elimination. And I mean elimination in the most literal way. [Image Can Not Be Found] Right now I'm touring down through the Dark Forest and making my way south back to Osian. I read in a book that there was a house of pissed off mages in the Dark Forest and I'm sort of looking around for them. I also want to hit the Crater area more thoroughly and then I'll probably zip back to the "far side" and try to stick a fork in it. I never did get up to that castle and have only returned to my "house" in Erothin once but I'm feeling sated here.

Proof being I just installed and played some Fallout: Las Vegas and loved the first couple of hours. Looks very promising. Same in game screen freeze as I get with Nehrim and got with Oblivion and F3. [Image Can Not Be Found] But the setting is very cool to return to after all this high fantasy. It's still the Embryo engine so many of the controls are similar.

Scout, I'll trade you. I too read about the house of evil mages in the Dark Forest but knew I didn't have it in me to find both that & the hood. I found the hood – you find the House of Mages. [Image Can Not Be Found]

You defected already...more like a lateral move. I'm waiting for Two Worlds II preorder (EU edition) to ship from GoGamer next week. I was among the minority who love TW #1.

I swore to myself I would not buy nor would I install Fallout Vegas until I finish a modded Fallout 3 + DLC. Arbitrary rule that might find itself broken. 

And both Mass Effect 1&2 (although Toger's quitting early after not enjoying herself does not give me warm fuzzies) – must muster the wherewithall to create Commander Shepard's face. Get. On. With it, Yap. Not the end of the world if her face isn't perfection. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Deal. I'll get back to you on the Pissed Off Mage House.

You better not install Vegas until you are ready to play it. I think there is a lot in the game that will appeal to you. Careful cause you have to make a character face though. I'm continuing my Nehrim theme of playing as a female and have the Work Hand clothes, the female version which makes me look like a vintage dress wearing clerk at an indie record store. And the Fancy Gambler's Hat, the female version of which is a little cap with a big purple feather. And the sub machine gun I'm carrying sort of creates a nice cognative dissonance. I look like Bonnie in Bonnie and Clyde.

And definitely take the Wacky Wasteland perk to get that occasional absurd encounter. All in all looking pretty fun.

Defected already? Already? I have over 100 hours in Nehrim. I've had relationships that haven't lasted that long.

I'm not the best yardstick to use... You loved Oblivion and I quit not long after finding Martin and closing the first gate. In its defense, I've never been a huge fan of first-person games and attempting combat when the majority of the time I was staring at my feet wasn't helping.

Toger, I don't remember if you played Oblivion on PC but I know for sure you don't mod. One of my essential mods is No More Oblivion Gates. Only mandatory & necessary gates open & absolutely positively no random gates. Plus, when gates are shut, they never ever reopen. [Image Can Not Be Found] Onliest way I could play that game with enjoyment.

I will try to be strong, resist the call of Vegas. Loved visiting there in January with perfect weather, pre-recession/real estate collapse with concomitant local misery & desperation, with no personal interest in drinking & gambling. Want very much to return via Fallout, cheaper than 2(shuttle between airport & the Strip).

Another option is cheesing the game to be always be invisible until you attack. Forgotten details but can easily be done in un-modded Oblivion. Certainly the only way I finished the game. Thealways first gate was cool. Mucking around in the next four thousand, screw that. If nothing can see ya completing the tasks inside takes five-ten minutes. Makes the whole game a pick & choose of what to play and what to ignore entirely. Both Morrowind and Oblivion have a couple ways to easily achieve a non-cheat code, non-mod god mode.
