I had saved him the first i saw him. Why? Well the Melnorme already told me about them and Gorno is kind of a remote area never gave the system any thought. Actually I spend alot of time looking for Zex's Beast little over a year and a half (real time not game time) pretty sad huh?

If you found out about the Shofixi from the Melnorme, didn't you think to buy the location of the beast from him too?  Grin

He only shows up if you've already got the Shofixti Maidens.

Did u find it by trial and error or did u use PN&F? The clues given where extremely vague I don't think it looked like a snake anyway I checked mostly in Ur-Quan space the clues were a little confusing remember I was running the original back in like 1996 and I had no web connection and I seriously doubt PN&F or any similar sites existed at the time anyway

When I played, I finally gave up with the quest of the beast. Reloaded my game (to cut the 2 years I spent searching) and continued the gem. However I found it because the Thraddash told me about it. They also tell you about a rainbow world.

As he said, BUY THE INFO FROM THE MELNORME. It's right there, numeric stellar coordinates.
And if you befriended the Thraddash, the second or third time you ask them for the news, they too tell you its exact location.

 Oh yes, it's nice to know that even if you don't save their lives with tales of swollen moons andsoforth, that they still live.  Perhaps I should allow them to reach the Yehat but in my games, I never have the heart for it.  The idea of Pkunk being blown away by their avianic cousins the Yehat bothers me almost as much as the destruction of the entire Zoq-Fot-Pik race did.


Actually, as I recall it, if you send the pkunk back home, they eventually get wiped out at the hands of the Illwrath. Assuming, of course, you don't sic the newly-named Dill-rats on the Thraddash before then.

Negitive, the pkunk can never be destroyed by the illwrath.

Are you joking? If you let them go back they kill the Ilwrath! Then if you go to their homeworld(Ilwrath) you can find a clocking device for your flagship! But it is clocked so you have to search every pixel over there.... It has a random location over the planet! This item is a must! Good luck finding it  Roll Eyes

edit: also if they get killed by the Thraddash, you can still search for the clocking device in their homeworld!

DJ i've heard this meantioned before as a device FF & PR intended to implement so to my knowledge it doesn't exist.  To be acurate it has been meantioned on these forums many times.

I apologize my spelling sux

I think we shouldn't correct people when they post funny stuff like that.
Let the newbies go searching for the cloaking device, or super weapon or whatever. It'll give them a chance to explore more.

That is sort of funny and sort of not so funny. Anyway here is a thread about the topic with some good ideas.
