I love your challenges, Grog.

I have an idea of how to get it, and I'm pretty sure I've done it in the past. Let me give it a shot and I'll get back to you.

EDIT: Blast, my plan failed. I tried sending the rescuers into rock, but it didn't work. I was thinking of another message I got in the past when I fruitlessly sent rescuers after a rocked character. Anybody know that one?

I'm heading up your way next week, Gutsy. Do I need a passport to cross at the Peace Arch?

I've gotten that a few times, mostly when having to be rescued on lower levels... I'm pretty sure fart is about right.

IIRC I had gotten this message even when sending rescuers down to lvl 3... I think I was trying to rescue someone from the goblin lair there.

you get this message if you send rescuers to a wrong spot (no dead character in the spot), I don't know if you only get this if your dead character is fairly deep though, but should be pretty easy to test it out... wink.gif

nope, if you mess up they're location (and they get there) you get " x was not found at or around the specified location."

i've seen the message a few times on lv 3 as well (way back when i played the demo)

I never use rescuers either, having a fairly tough backup party that can handle short stays on lv15.
But in the recent incident, as my main party was set to teleport out of 15 to lv12, I accidently typed "0,0,3" sending them instead to level 18. There is no level 18 of course.

Now for some emoticons: blush2.gif

How do I get them out of there?

help.gif
First try: send the backups down as a rescue party. Result: No good, Retrieve Soul could could not pull them up from 18.
help.gif
Second try: send Mordor rescuers. Result: "Rescuers never returned..., Don't you feel guilty now?"

So fart642000 is right, and I guess the comment is fairly common, when you ask for rescue and you provide deep coords with no one there.

don't think it matters if they are there or not, the deeper you send them, the less chance they'll make it back alive

if you send them down to lv 18, then they are rocked, rescuers can't get em either youll get "all they saw was arms sticking out of rock" or something

know there has to be a way to get em, not sure how though

If anyone could figure out how to suck characters up out of level 18, I'd be interested to know. Maybe my Seekers spell level for Retrieve Soul was not high enough.

Frankly, though, I don't really want that group back - if it is true that rocked characters always have complications when resurrected. I just wanted to see the items they had found before my stupid teleporting mistake. Then I rediscovered the Exchange items feature on the main menu -- I never knew you could make exchanges with the dead. Handy.

Rescuers can't help with Rocked characters, and Retrieve Soul only works if you're on the same level as the Rocked. So they're gone forever, unless you restore or use an editor to send them back to the City.

I've always felt Rocking was way too severe a price to pay for errant keystrokes. Nothing else in the game is remotely as punitive. Basically, it requires you to either cheat or else never use Portal/Displacement/Teleport in order to avoid a game-ending "whoops". Even if the HP loss from Rocking were removed it wouldn't be so bad -- with enough potions you can recover from all the other effects. dry.gif

^ rematerialling in rock will do that to you smile.gif

may have to use an editor if you want em out (think using it though will also make you have to revive them with the editor as well (thus avoiding complications)

Actually, rescuer never returned has several propabilities:
1. The Monsters kill them
2. They join the monsters.
3. They have been offered a new job, and sick of getting dead bodies, so they took the job.

Just kidding..... biggrin.gif

I got this message today and I actually did feel guilty. I didn't think the "Don't you feel guilty now?" part was actually in the message but I feel bad. It was a shadow sting stud square; they didn't last long. crybaby.gif
