After having to cope with a server hack, which wiped out all of RPGDot and The Locus Inn (luckily we decided once to invest $100 a month to make daily backups) and a move to a new server owned by Jolt, I can finally upload the Official Beyond Divinity Strategy Guide.
The guide is made by Kiya, Barnabus, Raze and myself and can be downloaded in three sizes: 49MB, 33MB or 18MB. They are big in all cases, thanks to the great artwork by Marian <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
They are all the same guide, but have different quality settings.

Download it from The Locus Inn. <broken link, see edit below>

The downloaded file is version 1.1. Raze and I are working on adding some extra information, which will lead to version 1.2 in a couple of weeks.

Enjoy!


EDIT: since the Locus Inn site appears to be down, here are download mirror links for version 1.3 of the guide: High quality 61MB. Medium quality 44MB or Low quality 30MB (still a decent quality if download size is an issue; you'd have to compare it to one of the other versions to consider it low quality).

Thanks, Myrthos! It looks beautiful, and seems to be jam-packed with useful info... I'm looking forward to reading through it.

(Sorry to hear about the server hack, and very pleased you had the backups.)

just downloaded the biggest version of the strategy guide, it's looking very good.

Actually it is on the hat, but everybody knows hats are colour blind, so it's also in red, so you can't see it.

My compliments to the writers of this guide! It's a masterpiece.
How about really printing this book and selling it? I'd buy it for sure. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/kitty.gif" alt="" />

I've updated the guide to version 1.2, with the help of Raze and Rincewind. I've added Raze's graph showing experience vs. level to the mathematics section. Rincewind has gone through all the pages in the search for typos and inconsistencies and found enough to make it a lot of work to add them.

Anyway, the new guide is available at the same link.

The link is currently working. It may have been down temporarily, or there was a problem somewhere between you and the Locus Inn site.

Are you sure the problem is not with your browser configuration, or a firewall / popup blocker setting? (ie you may be able to get to the main page for The Locus Inn, but not any of the pages with a referrer (a '?') in the URL) I have javascript, etc disabled in IE, so there are some site that only work properly in Firefox or Opera.

I've moved The Locus Inn from the RPGDot server to the RPGWatch server. As the RPGWatch software is completely different from the RPGDot software the link to the strategy guide has been changed to: http://www.locusinn.com/show/infopage?infoid=6&gameid=175

I can't edit the first post to change the link, perhaps Lynn can do that.

Hi,
I tried DL the guide and it is corrupted. I even tried it on another PC and it still was corrupted. Is there another site for this guide.

Thanks,

Which version did you try to get? I re-downloaded the 'low quality' version, and it is fine here.

Just in case, here is a temporary download link: BDGuideL.zip (15.2MB) - this will expire if the file goes for 30 days without being downloaded.

Raze went through the guide again a couple of times and made a lot of corrections to the text.
The guide, including all the updates has been recently released as version 1.3 and can be downloaded from the same location as before.
