Eschalon Book II: The Proper Application Of Explosives
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments
Basilisk Games has released its ninth Q&A update featuring answers to one or two questions from forum members about the upcoming Eschalon: Book II, the next title in the company's old school RPG series. This time the Q&A deals with the potential destructive power of powder kegs.
Question #9 [randomizer] In one of the screen shots it mentions in the text below that you pick up a powder keg. Will you now be able to place objects on the floor instead of just containers? If you can place objects on the floor this would make it possible to place a powder keg and retreat to a safe distance so you can detonate the powder keg as your enemies approach it (watch them die as it explodes). Also if you are hit with a powder keg in inventory, will it detonate? Read more about Eschalon Book II at the links provided below.
Basilisk Forum: Powder Keg Info
No, we will still make most items disappear forever if dropped on to the floor; powder kegs are considered special items. At this point I don't know if we will have any other special items that can be dropped. You still detonate kegs the same as in Book I by shooting them or hitting them. I've never thought about getting hit while holding a powder keg, but it certainly would add to the danger of hauling one around! That's a pretty cool idea actually....
[Asgard The Elder] How about placing the powder keg next to a pesky treasure chest or door you can't open? will it help?
Of course! 2 or 3 kegs should be enough to blow nearly any door off it's hinges!
