Wise Man pulls out several top-of-the-line computers from a trailer and puts them inside the bus. Then he sets them up in the back. But ADoS interrupted him. "What do you think you're doing?"

"I'm obviously trying to set up a LAN party back here..." Wise Man goes back to his work.

OOC: if you insist on a god-like character, Blade, then LEAVE, goddamn you. super-powerful characters that can take on mine tenfold are not tolerated.

IC:
Wise Man pulled out his cell phone and called up a few elite blademasters. Several men on racing motercycles charged towards GH, trapped it in a web of soul energy, then left. Wise Man then lifted a rocket launcher from the mechanic and fired an AT rocket to blow GH miles away.

OOC: Blade, if you keep it up with the god-like/all-powerful characters (and i'm tight about this), i bring out the endless Wise Arsenal and LF gets his Jaffa back.

With another sigh, Wise Man went out and wrapped the shreds of the being's spirit with soul energy. The energy imploded, destroying the wisps completely.

"There we go." He walked over to LF. "Hey, if you want a drink, I'll buy you one."

Wise Man pointed to a mobile burger joint behind the bus.

"Oh." Sullust said and they went inside.

Wise Man patted LF's shoulder and sighed. "Damned god wannabes." Then he went to sit on top of the bus and ate a burger.

"Stop it, both of you." Wise Man throws LF and JF into a porta-potty so they can fight it out themselves. :P

Wise Man tries to throw shurikens at the dinosaurs' eyes, but most of them miss and bounce off their thick skin. He then pulls out his rifle (yes, it's a crappy old AK-47, so what) to shoot them instead.

Wise Man chucks several grenades out the window, then dashes out to slash some more Frenchmen before going back inside to shoot them with his rifle.

Wise Man shows his agreement by kicking JF off the bus, and beating the crap out of Elton John.

Wise Man forces the demons to back away from LF with a seemingly endless burst of rifle fire. He then replaces his gun for his katana and chops up several demons, again, for good measure.

Wise Man loaded his assault rifle and opened the window to pick off some demons.

OOC: lazy.

Wise Man draws his katana and chops up a demon. Then he smacks LF for good measure, and goes back to meditating, once again.

Wise Man gets up from meditation, looks around, buys a taco, eats it, and goes back to his meditation. :rolleyes:

A man with a katana and an assault rifle enters the bus, through an open window. "Small windows are no match for me, ADoS."

He then goes to the back to meditate.

Ever since I started playing RPGs, I've been somewhat disturbed at the fact that 99% of all warriors were basically slow-moving tanks with gigantic hunks of metal the size of a decade-old tree. Therefore I strongly suggest:

1. A skill similar to "Fast on Feet" trait would be nice. It could be done so that the higher the skill, the higher the chance that you'll get that extra AP. Or at insanely high levels, you have a low chance of getting 2(!) extra APs. However, heavy equipment (BIG weapons, heavy armour) would sharply reduce this chance.

2. A skill like #1, except it gives you a chance to use one less for a physical attack. This works for both melee and ranged. Damage is reduced to about 90%. But then, you'll get a second attack on the same turn if you have no status effects. Again, heavy equipment would sharply reduce this chance.

EDIT: Somebody may have mentioned this already, but anyways:

Different attack AP costs for different weapons. A small weapon (like a dagger or short sword) would cost 3 AP, medium weapon (longsword, spear) 4AP, large weapon (greatsword, halberd) 5 AP. This is because you take MUCH less time to stab somebody with a dagger than chopping their bodies in half with a six-foot-long greatsword.

1. if it's not too hard, mounted combat skills would be nice.
2. Soul Force. this is magic that does not draw energy from divine or arcane sources, but from the user's soul. Soul Force boosts mental resistance, as well as willpower.

A "Sharpshooter" skill that adds to Archery and Thrown damage would be nice. Also, a skill that is similar to Assassination, but only with Archery, would make archers more useful.

I feel that not all people who play fancy, high-budget games would run away on sight of Avernum's graphics and interface. I myself love hack n' slasher "RPG"s and high-budget RTS's, even though they sometimes lag on the best computers (fine, it lags on mine, but I bought it only three months ago). However, I still love Avernum and the rich storylines. Therefore, BoA CAN be targeted to all.

I feel that it would be great if a sort of "minimum [basic stat]" requirement was put in for the weapons and armour. It does not make sense to see some low-strength mage chop people to pieces with a big greatsword that he/she can barely even lift.

Geneforge loading and saving problem in Tech Support
Master

i'm guessing that you are using Windows 95/98, since newer Windows versions do not have these blue screens. i've used 98 before, and it is not too stable compared to Win2k and WinXP.

possible problems:
1. it could be a software conflict with another game, from a different company. trying uninstalling your other games one by one, and rerun Geneforge until the blue screens stop, which means you have uninstalled the game which caused the conflict.

2. not enough RAM. Win98 uses your hard drive for RAM equivalents when there is not enough memory at the moment, making your system very slow and unstable, hence the blue screen and Geneforge crashing on you. the solution here is to buy an extra chip.

3. some vital files in Geneforge could have been corrupted when you typed in the registration code. try uninstalling, then reinstalling the game.
