Homeland : The Stone of Night is now officially a freeware game in General

Hodamn i reappear and i've missed something cool. Maybe i should start regularing the forums again...

But I remember trying this game not too long after it was released, and having issues cause my nice, new, Gateway GC-333 w/a whopping 64MB of RAM, couldn't handle it very well. God I miss the old days of Spidweb, before the closing of the Slith vs Nephil thread and when we still had the Misc board... fun times for those who remember them

A/E3 comes to mind when you can't kill the Dragon babies, lest angering the dragon and not getting your cool two-handed special-effect sword (i forget which one it was)

Thanks, I knew i had good portions of that bad, but i didn't know it was approximately half.
However, it was close to how i heard it (partially form TM, and partially from someone else) And i think i guessed at the Ikonboard thing, so my bad at that.

And thinking back on it, it wasn't Imban but it was somebody who very much reminded me of him and im not sure why. :/

Alorael for Admin in General
Shock Trooper
Member # 1152

Alorael, imo, would be a great admin, but keep in mind guys, Forums aren't always (read "almost never") a democracy. Despite my now random and infrequent visits to the forum, back when i used to be a regular, Alorael was one of the prominent figures on the board, probably the most prominent, as Moderator of the Miscellaneous forum. Most of you don't remember that, and weather thats good or bad isn't my call. However, Aloreal is one of the few members from then that i can still see around. The others being Drakey, Imban, *I, TM, and Tails. Tails was soon banned for something goatse-related (if i remember correctly), and Imban was constantly banned then unbanned in those days (if i remember correctly, although i may be confusing him with somebody). Then there was Johnnyfeds, but thats another thread altogether...

Now, for my view on the TM thing. I don't know waht he did to get banned this time, and i probably don't care. However, before my time on the Iknoboards, he was an Administrator. Now, the following story may be wrong, but its how i remember being told. TM was both Admin, and solely responsible for the Nethergate board. One day, (form what i've gathered) a very raunchy banner image appeared one day,and TM was removed and banned. I've been told be some people he had no involvement with it, and others it was him.
When the UBB Switch was made, and he got his prolific Member #4, he was reinstated as a Nethergate Moderator. When i joined, (i believe around the creation of Polaris on ezBoards)he wasn't currently a moderator. But the point is, that TM has had powers in the past, and i have no way of knowing if he was responsible with those powers or not, being that when i last say him as an admin i was about 12 and had just gotten on the internet as your typical n00b (still cant spell though :P ) And, if he's been banned, theres a good reason, and if Jeff says he's gone then he's gone. As much as i admire TM, he's had more than enough chances: most members don't even get as many as he did.

Ok, if nobody's going to say it,

WHAT ABOUT THE PUZZLE CUBE? WILL WE HAVE AN ANSWER AS TO WHAT IT DOES???!!

You realize that up until the Geneforge Series (not the first Geneforge game mind you) that Nethergate was the #1 selling Spidweb game, right?

Ok, i know that there a lot of people who who don't care and a lot of people who do, but our mighty overlord Jeff Vogel has had his latest View from the Bottom post linked to on Slashdot.

I think Nethergate is very owrth tis price. Remember, the world size is actually that X2 because thigns work diffrently as Romans and Celts.
Also, i hope my OS 8.6 box will be able to play the new Nethergate whe it comes out

Goboo was the best charctor, aside from Hiawatha. The 6th char persons kick ass, there is no doubt.

I'd rahter run Mac System 6 if i had a choice, but theres no software for it and colour is limited.

But, theordically, you can compile WINE for OSX or get the FreeBSD Binary of WINE and be all set. Transgaming already makes Cedegea for OSX PPC, so you can game for a price. But, i have yet to get Spidweb games working in a free version of WINE in Linux, bu thten again, if oyu have a Mac, you can run the Mac Native ones. And, that brings me to a very good point about a few x86's: 2+2=4.000000000001

So, i was playing Avernum a little while ago, and started wondering: how many people use Melee and how many use Pole weapons in the games? I also wonder fi the answer is connected with a person's personality.

I beleive he means one tah can only be played with an internal network, like over IPX. I don't beleive any of theese exsist, but pleanty of people play FPS games as RPG online games in clans and guilds.

The answer is simple: make sure Skribbane is on Encyclopedia Etharian, and to make thoose people calling Vanthai fancruft shut up, take EE's Vanthai entry, with proper permission of cource, and repost it on Wikipedia, as most say there is way to little info
