Personally, I like to actually role play my characters, and it's harder to really connect with the character and get into the game when the character is the opposite gender.
I've found anecdotally that many roleplayers tend to play a variation or caricature of themselves when playing a character of the same gender. Playing one of the opposite gender creates a detachment that actually leads to more "authentic" roleplaying because less identification means the player is more likely to make the character behave as the character, not as himself or herself.

—Alorael, who on the other hand has a history of roleplaying characters of the same genders precisely to get that self-projection. There is a different kind of fun in portraying a form of "Me, but with a huge sword and able to shoot fireballs, heal the sick, and fly!"

This is the precise reason i love games in which there are multiple party membersthat you create, because then YOU are te one with the sword and fireball, and then that woman that is sometimes your alter ego can be there too, amd other characters that are all having their own personalities. Like the female halfling wizard i play in d and d, which is as far as you can get from a big guy. Little girl way different than hulking brock! hehe

sorry for the double post, but i dunno how to quote two different people in one post.
of spmeone could tell me how to quote something while still writing the message, i'd appreciate it.

i do the same thing, in fact i tend to make my mages females, because i've always heard that women are more in tune with nature, and that's how i view magic...natural. I wish that we really could live in a world so rife with mysteriousness and power, ripe for discovery.

ahhh, to live in a carefree world, to wake up in the morning with the fresh tang of sweet fresh air, to smell the mountain dew, and then spend the day exploring...

It would make certain classes viable, be a lot of fun, and missile based characters deserve a little extra oomph for being different.

now THAT is a viable idea... the possibilities are seemingly endless...

note: 4 AP seems more balanced...2 shots but no moving. Theextrafocus of aiming and firing twice makes it more difficult then say, drinking a pod.

now all i want to see in Jeff's games are a way of doing much more damage unarmed. like gloves of unarmed damage or something, so i can make a monk-like character.

Avernum 1 - Mung demons and crystal goodies. in The Avernum Trilogy
Apprentice
Member # 14311
Profile #17
go to your character's info screen, in the bottom right where it has your mage spells and abilities and all that click useful skills, then click willpower. it explains it there. i believe willpower is derived from intelligence and luck, and maybe one of the magic skills. It says in te description what the formula is. 5% resistance per point of willpower i think, compared against the skill of the one who uses it. incidentally, dumbfounding is one of the most difficult effects to resist.

Edit: Let's say a mung demon has a 60% chane to dumbfound, and you have 80% resist. the 60% comes from your chance. 80% minus 60% is 20%, so u have a 20% chance of resisting it. see?

Edit:yay i have been given a 5 star rating by someone!

Its a very complicated matter, but when it comes to it I think the rebels are the lesser of two evils. They have a much greater capacity for change. The shapers have been set in their ways for much too long to change them. The rebels may currently be overzealos due to some of the Drakons, but I have faith that their leader will rein them in and that they will see reason. :D
Sorry, but have you finished the rebel endings? Because I see it hard to believe that with the evidence planted in the game. Can you explain your position more?

Now THAT is he kind of talking i like seeing! asking if he understands, and saying he disagrees in a gentle and understanding way! Go you!

what did you name your characters, and why? in The Exile Trilogy
Apprentice
Member # 14311
Profile #44
i like to roleplay-a lot-and tend to come up with characters who i then write stories about or insert into d and d, so they are usually pretty in depth. unfortunately, I only remember this one, and also exile doesn't have the depth of races d and d does, so i actually adjust for exile instead of the other way around. As follows:

Lana: a halfling girl who has no memory of her life before being left on the streets of Lorelei. she desperately searches the city for a cure to heal a wasting disease that threatens to take her only friend's life. At last, she turns to magic, but not quickly enough to save her friend's life. She then set to travelling. In her travels, she discovers that the disease is affecting other people in many cities, all of them born with an innate ability (divinely touched)...and that it was caused by an old, wise, powerful, totally evil necromancer...deep underground...

I would love to see the revamped Avernum Trilogy!
My wonder is will some of the old spells from Exile ever come back, like Mindduel (especially) and the area of effect spells, flight and the create barrier spells (oh yeah!).

Incidentally, do you think owners of the original trilogy will get a nethergate-like discount when getting the remakes whenever they come?

I know a good free MMO that is turn based but way better than any other turn-based MMO. It is called Kingdom of Loathing and it is hilarious. the atmosphere is funny and fresh, and because of that few annoying people play it. Best of all, everyone gets the same number of adventures every day, so equal opportunity to excel or fail in your own time. try going to-

http://www.kingdomofloathing.com

Edit: were i a bot, i would a) not post on other threads with reasonable answers, and b) not answer people.

Edit: no, i am not comparing Jick to Jeff-I loves em both! hehe

is this thread nothing more than a flame war, people contantly telling everyone else why they are wrong, and proffering a more reasonable opinion, only to be shot down?! I have taken to reading only the very short messages, because they are the only ones worth reading! sheesh, calm down and at least attempt to understand the other person's point of view!

incidentally, if someone would explain how karma works i would appreciate it, i am young and have been on only 1 other board. a...relaxed dungeons and dragons discussion board.

Edit: thanks Kinggolden

The Trakovites are, in a way, looking at the grand scale of things. As someone said earlier, they are the hippies of Terrestria. They believe that the power of Shaping, of creating life magically, should be stopped. This view would, indeed, stop the suffering quite well. However, by stopping the creating of life, they have also stopped a source of happiness. Most creations are happy and content with their lot in life. As the Final Fantasy character Seymour said, you must kill someone to release them from the suffering of life. In his madness, he failed to see the joy that living holds for all of the world's living creatures, especially humans. To end suffering is to end everything else!

Edit: By the way, all, i am a new member here, and i am a TOTAL GEEK, if anyone wants to know more about me

Edit: the last board i was on prefered each point being a separate post, but i an handle that.
