Grey Crypt - the stairs are gone....

For all discussion on all the previous Bard's Tale games: the classic 1980s games (Bard's Tale, II: Destiny Knight, & III: Thief of Fate) & the humorous Bard's Tale (2004) spin off.

Grey Crypt - the stairs are gone....

Post by john_damon » December 24th, 2018, 7:43 pm

Hey y'all:

So I'm retracing my steps and trying to go back and get to all the wall mouths that speak the five words needed to get the dreamspell. I went to the Grey Crypt and got the mouth, then went through the tedious snare again to get teleported back to the beginning stairs. But, when I got to the stairs that should go up to the wilderness, it is saying that the "Stairs are gone..."

I have no idea what is going on? I cannot get out of the crypt. I have literally spent hours in here trying to get out to no avail. Any one have any ideas or can help me in any way? I would greatly appreciate it.

There are two answers that the Sphinx will accept. One opens the stairs to Level 2, the other opens the exit.

Possible bug, I've tried both words and neither one restored the entry stairs, so I had to use a Ring of Return, which fortunately worked in there.
Another weird feature: The magic mouths and other riddlers will ask their riddles every time the player makes a turn, which is annoying and confusing.

This is no bug, stairs are gone in the real classic version (1988) too. In case of solving the Snare, the stairs will appear again ....
