A lot weird actions seem to effect dex. One time I gained a point of dex after picking up an item.

Anything that would involve the movement of your arms trains DEX iirc.
System would indicate in graphic if person is mounted on horse or not.
Same system also show if person mounted on boar, elephant, polar bear etc.
Or if person mounted on ass.

I think the two symbols are probably just more gods that weren't implemented.

Close - they're gods that actually were implemented and later removed. If you check very early versions of IVAN (where Attnam is the starting location and it's spring there), there were originally 2 more gods. I vaguely remember Terra being one of the actual gods, too.

I may be wrong on some details, so feel free to browse through the IVAN versions and see for yourself

well in .3 and back it looks like you start in attnam. Holy crap, it's like a whole different game!

I dont think so.

Does the genie really stop serving you after 1001 nights?


On an unrelated note, what does it mean when you try to sacrifice a corpse and it says "It's too important for you to be sacrificed."

You can't sacrifice food.

Yes you can, Silva accepts normal food, every single god likes Valdemar and Vodka. I think that corpses are "It's too important for you to be sacrificed." because they can be revived into loayal pets.

Oh, and by the way, Jenny can be brought back to life with Res wand and each time she(/it?) regrow 3 pinaples.

I think it is something the devs put in becuase they have not yet determined the sacrificial value of corpses in the current version. Though I don't really know what it's supposed to imply. Like I can't really think of anything I could do with a spider corpse that would be all that useful.

Also yeah, you can sacrifice food. Silva likes fruit and will accept it, but it has almost no value for any other god and they wont. Seges likes loafs of any kind. You can even sacrifice detatched limbs(of yours or a monsters) for a little bit of favor if you want.

Reviving jenny for pineapples sounds like a waste of a wand charge.

I also think it's like Cow says - that sacrificing is half-baked in that sense. And if it was complete, it could be some funky, detailed system.

Also, when resurrected, she spawns plants! Which makes this VERY useful for us gym rats.
Well I assume that a bolt has a given, numeric, amouunt of perwer. (assi in enegri)... unless it's LAERSER SKISKLS POEWN PEWN!

So resurrected Jenny is your friend -- are her spawns also your friends?

Hell, imagine if Jenny was tameable, portable and the spawned plants were friendly?
Might make IVAN unbearably easy.
And then we'd have a spin-off of that crazy mushroom infestation all over again.
Which reminds me, has anyone tried getting the "kill petrus" (or become king or whatever) ending through using magic mushrooms to screw with Attnam?

Nope, won't work. Jenny can't even take on NA, and that's one of the easier places by far. That should have occurred to you since she is the first boss and the weakest of the named beings.

Also MMs have no chance in hell of killing Petrus.

I was thinking more of the giant carnivorous plants that spawn eventually mobbing the town first, and THEN pissing off the townsfolk.

And in response to the magic mushroom thing, my idea was getting them to polymorph or at least teleportitis the other people around Attnam so you'd only have to deal with petrus himself and maybe that archangel that shows up. Would be easier than being mobbed by the whole town, I would think.

I know you were talking about the spawns.

Also on the MMs, you'd want to be powerful enough to kill Petrus, and if you are, it's just a matter of playing smart to kill the guards and angels. Unless you have gas immunity, the MMs would screw you over as well.

And thats where Ivan and his mask show up Anyway, if you are able to at least give a fight to Petrus, then the rest of the town is just a piece of cake, you don't need MMs all over the town. You only have to worry about taking the archangel before Petrus or viceversa but not at the same time, as they are the only ones that really give a fight once you are strong enough. Oh, and be sure to tame the mystic light frogs before attacking, or fighting Petrus out of their range otherwise as they can be annoying.

About the genie I always wondered the same thing! Is there any way to know if after 1001 nights the genie really stops serving you? I mean, it's crazy to spend 1001 in game days, but maybe there is something in the code...

Only once in a blue moon does a man survive 1001 nights in IVAN.
Thanks in part to the set spawn date for Izzy.

Azhael, the master guard is pretty tough as well. Maybe not on par with the archangel, but close. I've also unleashed hell on Attnam once only to have the smith as the sole survivor, don't underestimate him. Of the service providers he's second only to Merka.
