Oh wait, I was answering the question you just asked before.

EDIT: In case that isn't clear, I was saying that you should just absorb your creations and make new ones when you improve your shaping skill or knowledge of a specific creation shaping.

The reason you would evolve them over time as opposed to starting them out with high skills is so as you gain levels (and therefore more essence), you can get them more skills. But we basically all agree that fundamentally, quantity is better than quality.

He doesn't want every tester to be an expert, but they should be able to explain what's going wrong and be able to follow his instructions for a fix.

She was always a seer on the surface too. She disappears after Exile I, though, and I can't remember if she makes a cameo in Exile II.

It would be interesting if she played a part in Avernum 5, though.

Nephil archery bonus: missle and thrown? in Blades of Avernum

But Nephilim are expert archers, not expert javelin-hurlers. While the dexterity bonus will make your thrown weapons do better, Nephilim are not naturally better at thrown weapons aside from that dex bonus.

I believe it only works with missile weapons. Felines are more dextrous than humans - ever seen one slink through a fence before?

That actually sounds really cool.

If you get a chance to kill the night enemy, why shouldn't he have the chance to kill you? Would you be on a time limit (say 8 turns) to kill him, and if you didn't that would be failure?

I'm about to go dumpster diving (aka looking through text dumps of the games), but here's some stuff beforehand:

Linda was not one of the five mages exiled together - Aimee was, though.

X is much younger than those five, possibly even born in Exile.

Okay, I'd revise my original post to organize the ages like this:

Aimee
Erika?
Rone/Solberg
Erika?
Patrick

This would depend on whether or not Erika was the same mage from skylark vale or not.

EDIT: Aran, what happened to slarty's text dumps? They're gone!

I think it happens at the end of the current state, so if you kill them and revive them in the same state, the game won't end.

What about Voyager? Who couldn't love Chakotay and Tuvac?

I love watching soccer games in person and on TV - it's definitely better in person because you can see the whole field. College basketball and football games are definitely better in person too. But I think pro football is better on TV. Cycling is definitely better on TV, though. Track depends - in person you can watch all of the events, not just the ones they show you, but it gets really boring watching a 10k.

There are the five mages exiled together:

Erika
Solberg
Patrick
Rone
Linda

I'd say that Erika and Linda are probably the youngest, followed by Patrick and Solberg, and Rone would be the oldest.

Avernum 3 or Geneforge? in The Avernum Trilogy

In Geneforge I always keep a finger on the quicksave key. Avernum doesn't quite have the same effect. Then again, that's also a result of the real-time movement.

quote:
Originally written by Spidweb:

The new Battlestar Galactica is a masterpiece in progress. There has never been a SF TV series (and very little written SF) that so revels in the way nothing big is ever easy and even the most extreme situations almost always deny us simple black and white choices. It's dark, dense stuff, and it's not for everyone. But it's brilliant.

Now, my favorite TV show is The Wire, on HBO, which covers a lot of the same moral territory, without robots. But I'm the only person in the world who watches it.

- Jeff Vogel

One of the two TV critics for the Newark Star-Ledger loves both shows.

Drakons are worse than the Shapers, in that they want to subjugate everyone - humans, serviles, other creations, and even drayks.

Well, not everyone can be a shaper. That's why you need a Geneforge - to change people's genes so that they're able to learn to shape.

You could use a couple commas, but it's not too bad. The spelling, on the other hand, is pretty bad. But it's okay, because you're Romanian.
