New Stronghold Question

Postby vapour » Wed Apr 25, 2001 10:11 pm

Ok, i have a very strange problem.

I just played through for the 4th time as a stalker. I did just about all the quests there are including the Umar Hills Ranger Stronghold quest and completed that.

So, Im thinking to myself, I wonder what a Swashbuckler is like.

Now i don't want to play through the game again, because i've already played though as a normal thief.

What i decided to to, was to make a swashbuckler in shadowkeeper, then import him into one of my last saves before irenicus (right outside the palace).

so I did this, and it seemd to have worked.

What i would like to do is access the Thief stronghold thing. But when i complete the quest, Renal just gives me the gold and the sword like i wasn't a thief. He wont give me the guild.

Clearly, this is because I've played though 99% of the game as a ranger. So I was wondering if there is a global variable or something I can change so that renal thinks im a thief not a ranger????

I think your problem is that you can only get one stronghold, outside of fighter/anyclass, and that's just a bug that has to be executed correctly. Maybe there is some shadowkeeper thing you can do, I wouldn't know I don't like to cheat.

You need to set the GLOBAL PlayerHasStronghold to 0.
There's nothing a little poison couldn't cure...

What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, ... to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if he people could understand it, it could not be released because of national security.
