    [​IMG] I heard people tell me they couldn't get to the other side... It seems to depend on the stats your characters has. It was funny though, I played a mage and could do it (nothing very high except INT), and the other guy played a ranger (I think), but couldn't...

    Or it possibly has to do with how much weight you're carrying, or armour...

    I was the Ranger that couldn't make it, and from what I could tell, the only major difference was I was wearing armor. So perhaps try again after taking your armor off.

    It's your constitution. The weight you're carrying might also have an effect. If you try at first and you get the message about running out of breath, take a potion of endurance (I had found lots by then, and it was the only time I used them).

    [​IMG] Since I was also not able to do it on my first try, I used a potion of endurence which rose my Constitution score to 16; I was then able to make it to the other side.

    For some reason, I had to go back after I had made it on the other side; I therefore took another endurence potion which rose my Constitution score to 14, but I was then not able to make it. I absolutely needed a Constitution score of 16, which I got after the effect of that last potion expired. However, I cannot tell you if inventory weight has any effect on the required score.

    [​IMG] My character had a constitution of 16 (+2 with some magical boots)and he was able to swim through the well even in full plate. I think it's not nessesarry to take the armor off, the game just makes a constitution check to decide that you can make it or not.

    I was a ranger and I couldn't make it, but I didn't try anything else to make it so I just left. It told me I couldn't so I left.

    Hmmm, well. With my monk (who is a halfling), I couldn't do it, though she was wearing no armor, and had a CON of 16, but my Elven fighter with CON 14 and Full plate, made it through easily... Go figure...

    It is quite possibly a random thing (a few of these replies sort of lead one to that conclusion.)

    Now, I'm going to ask the question that I'm surprised nobody did: What is on the other side? Anything special?

    Hee hee. Actually, the 'other side' is rather entertaining. **warning - spoiler below**

    When you get out on the other side, you're in another cave, but much much smaller, with a single door. Through the door is a very old tomb with a few goodies in it. The main part of the tomb is awakening it's eternal resident: a long dead barbarian warrior-chief. He asks a riddle about his 'legend', which you may or may not have found on the dead body in the first cave. If you know the name of his tribe, he exclaims in wonder that his legend has survived this long. The conversation goes on, but you can tell the truth about him being a 'forgotten' legend (at which point he goes on at length in dismay), you can lie about it saying he's famous (again he'll go on at length, this time about the fame) or if you want to just make something up, at which point he gets really irate at having spent an eternity in the tomb, only to be mocked, etc, by someone who was 'hunting bears and stumbled across this tomb'. It was one of the few truly humorous parts of the SP game ;) I saved and tried out as many of the conversation options as possible, and they were all pretty good. The loot is pretty typical stuff though.

    Heh, now that sounds like something that might be worth playing through Chapter 2 again.
