Ok, then I broke the quest. Just re-checked with an old save and cheats. Since in Sorona I got a lot of quests leading me to Blackwater, I went there and cleared the whole map BEFORE even getting to the Necromancer's guild. Now Blacknor doesn't spawn at all :(

To appear Blacknor you first need to take a task to find it from the necromancer Sandro. Without a quest Blacknor will not appear behind bars.

I took the task, Blacknor isn't there.
  • Some pickups need their size increased, as they can't be taken easily from the shelves. For example, the secret Quartz Flask in Blacklands can't be taken at all.

This was not the case in tests before. There may be an error in the script, we'll see.

The Quartz Flask can be taken from the side of the bed if you bend down even with low characteristics.

Spoiler:
If it does not work, then please write in detail exactly where and in what sequence you went on this map and further before taking the quest.

My apologies for the change of subject, but where can I find the Cowardly Satyr's key? This door in the crypt requires it and I don't want to use cheats to know what's beyond it.

This is one of the secret quests in Ascension.

Amazing TC! Just two comments:

1. Would it be possible to pick up armors and keep them in the inventory, until they are usable, just like with weapons/spells?

2. I don't know if shotguns fit inside this DnD-like universe...

  • There are 3 unreachable "1024" secret sectors in the sewers
Just finished it yesterday. Had a blast. If this doesn't get a Cacoward, I'lll be pissed.

1.No. But you can go back and get them when you improve your stats.

2.Why not? This is fantasy!

No idea about the dramas, have been away from that crap for 20 years. Probably it's as stupid as they were back then. Anyway, easy Cacoward, best of the year so far.

Also, the eruption attack from the final boss also cripples performance, you should also consider removing the lightmaps it generates.

It really didn't had to be a scandal to start with.

Having said that, the quality on display is obvious, both here and in Shadowman's previous projects.

Script error, "AscRes.pk3:actors/objects/homeobj.txt" line 2348:
Invalid parameter 'a_startsound'

I have tried launching the 2 provided files in different orders via a custom .bat, but this error always shows up. If I load only the ascens.wad file, all the textures and things are errored in-game.

What GZDoom version are you using?
