Teleportation Technique in Blades of Exile

Ash, I'm not sure you realize the gravity of this method. I don't remember Drizzt's method (I never got far enough in Shadow of a Stranger to figure it out), but this allows teleportation from any town at any time to any town. You could do an easy time machine with it! You wouldn't ever have to worry about it being an all-towns scenario. You get done talking to Mayor Shifty about delivering something to whoever in whatever city, then you just teleport right in front of him to the town!

Maybe you do realize the gravity, and are just better at not spazing about things…

Yeah, soon as I get started on that scenario based around the word "meat" (thank you very much, Thuryl).

I actually have a few options with that, BTW. I could go the route of Kingdom of Loathing (if you don't know, look it up), and have meat be the currency in a ridiculous kingdom. I could have meat as one of the proto-missions in a bigger story ("son, I need you to fetch some meat at the store" then the town is attacked while you're there) that's a rather lame excuse, though. Or I could think of something totally unrelated to the concept of meat and just have something sound similar or some other loophole.

Sweet.

EDIT: I move that Wonko get's the title "Resident BoE Genius" (or that I get the title "Sir Talks-too-much-for-his-own-good").

EDIT2: I got the impression that it might slow it down because of a reference in the help manual that a town timer called too often may slow a scenario down, and I've never really played with that enough to know what it's talking about.

Holy cwap that's pure genius! Wow, you could even have a text input (talking to an orb, say) and it'd be easy to define the key words, because you know the town names! Holy cwap you're a genius!

EDIT: The first thing I thought when I read your post was that it would slow the game down a lot, calling a special that often (every turn). Though I suppose it'd have to be tested to determine that. Maybe I don't know what I'm yakking about.

What the heck do you mean by one conversation? You certainly don't mean one AT A TIME, or one PER PERSON. That would be annoying.

Also, I'm interested in seeing your meat-based scenario when it comes out. Are you going to make the player fight a cult of militant vegetarians? A villainous necromancer who has stolen all the meat from a whole Imperial province to make flesh golems? Mmmh...

Yes, I have to say, it's not a very obvious tribute.

And no, I won't make it on any of those, but I won't tell you what it will be about (also, I can't right now, because I don't know.)

Say one word. It's for the good of BoE.

I'll make a decent scenario out of it by the end March this time next year.

I'm not schooled in the finer details of the two theologies, but I'm specifically referring the the Armenian idea that salvation can be lost, and the Calvinist idea that if you're like Bart here, you never believed in the first place.

If Bart ever truly believed, then i believe I will see him in heaven.

I don't see the big deal (other than the whole free-speech detail), TM gets banned all the time.

Bart's main problem: Nobody ever lectured him on the "Synoptic Problem", even though he studied at Moody and Wheaton for a total of 12 years. Or he never listened.

I still believe he'll be in heaven, because I'm not Armenian (or Calvinist).

Okay, if you say so. is there some interesting plot, or is it just good for real beginners?
I got the plot from s children's storybook. It's different from basic plots such as "I'm the king, my sword was stolen, if you get it back, you can keep it and I'll give you some extra treasure" or "Oh holy crap! There's ogres terrorizing the valley! Help us and we'll give you some treasure!" It's more interesting, but also simple.

And it's still good for beginners.

So, in answer to your question…yes.

TM's - Echoes: Assualt, scenario is an excellent pick.
I enjoyed it from begining to end, a worthy scenario to any BoE player!
:)

Did you understand what was going on, then? If you did, please explain it to me. Please. :P

Don't get me wrong, the combat was very fun.
But I barely could grasp the "finishing" ending, let alone the "winning" ending with someone who is my enemy but also Katothen being the same as someone who killed a guy talking about a guy spouting bilbical references, who then summoned something to kill me that didn't actually exist. I was then told about this by a person that also doesn't exist, who is looking for "The Evidence" and is an enemy of Karl Gottfried, who said he was going to explain everything but just mumbled vaguely and ended the scenario.(/rant)

Basically, the whole Echoes plotline runs like this: TM hates everybody, he tries to personify everybody in his scenarios (even though we don't see it), so that he can kill everybody. And then he goes on an acid trip, and wakes up to find that his scenario has been injected with a lot of philisophical babble that shouldn't even be in scenarios.

EDIT: Oh, and if you're after something uber-simple, try The Foolish Giant . Guaranteed to be one of ten easiest scenarios you'll ever play, ranked up there with Nine Variations on Point B, etc.
