Losing one's hold...any second chances?

Postby neightball » Fri Nov 03, 2000 2:56 pm

I am a ranger and I am in the second major half of the game (Chapter 6). I earned the ranger hold back in chapter 2, but I mysteriously lost it for not doing something when I thought I answered the pleas from all of the townspeople. I am angered because the pommel to the equalizer was in a cabinet being stored... ...I had not yet discovered the bag o' holding. Is there any way in the
Seven Bloody Planes of Hell that I can retrieve the pommel? I am even open to "cracked" suggestions because the ranger hold has been barred and the people are unfriendly. Any advice is welcome.

Well, you could

1) Start a new game, get the pommel in Irenicus'

2) Export the character with the pommel

3) Go to your game, drop a party member to get an extra slot.

4) Copy the game to multi-player

5) Import the character with the pommel into the open slot.

6) Take the pommel off them, exit, drop them, save.

7) Copy the game back to single-player and re-add the dropped player.

Or your could Download Shadowkeeper and edit the saved game to add the pommel to your inventory.

Same thing happened to me with my thieves guild. Because I was off somewhere and didn't get back in time to pay the quotamaster I lost the guild. Each time I bribe to get it back they take my money and then take my guild again. So i got sick of it after a while and gave up on it.

A strange thing happened to me.

I lost my guild, payed the fee, but my guild is still oficially shut down, yet my thieves are still working.

The result: Get like 2.5k every five days and don't pay anything to the other guild

Has this happened to anyone? I'm not sure if it is a bug or is the way its supposed to be.

That's what's happening to me. Heh, Renal is a bit of d**k to not even notice that I'm running my own guild right in the same district he is and giving him NO tribute. What a dope
