I don't think we see Rone in E/A3. Why would he be an enemy of Exile?

Well, seeing as it's quite possibly in the Shortest 10 Complete Scenarios ever, I would agree. And since I had already done lots of debugging before testing.

@Kel: When the heck did the archive happen? I've seen, just never thought about it.

It's definately not a big scenario. It should take you a half hour, at an extreme most, and that's if you read all the dialouge and see every detail. And take forever.

I take less than 10 minutes every time through, because I know what doesn't need to be seen, and because I use a mega-party for testing.

@ ADoS circa Aug 2004: Lot impregnating his daughters was not made out as a positive thing. They created the Moabites, who were not a good nation, in general.

I would so love to introduce all to fundamentalist dispensational premillenialism, once I learn it hardcore.

EDIT: Sorry, I find it hard to back down from even the oldest of challenges. I'm horrible.

And, to make this topical, I pity you, Ben. Love your mother.

So far I've got TM and nothing more. Ben, you'd be good for a newer member (in BoE years, anyway. BoA doesn't exist in my eyes, is heresy :P ), cuz I don't know if you've got BoE scenarios.

Thuryl, would you be willing to test instead of warn about TM's almighty wrath?

Finally, after what seems like year (well over a year, in fact) I get to put out a call for beta testers for The Foolish Giant.

I'm looking for:

2 reletively new members (who haven't designed, or at least released, any scenarios yet)

2 experienced members (who have released two or more "good" scenarios, you know who you are :cool: )

Email (PM me if you like), is all I really need.

Which reminds me, why are/were some Vahnatai in league with the Empire in E2?

Don't push, I had this same problem. You have to actually "search" (look at) the wall. You don't have to get into any cells. It's in the north wall of the hallway.

I don't see how abducting the Crystal Souls is more immoral than capturing, for instance, the members of the Vahnatai council. Anyhow, it's certainly no excuse to exterminate all specimens on the surface world, while those who where guilty of the crime were already dead.
It's more immoral (to the Vahnatai, and even to humans, as Crystal Souls have wisdom that all benefit from) than kidnapping the council members because of what they are to all Vahnatai everywhere. Council members are mortal, Crystal Souls are undying (unless killed?).

Sadly enough, I've never done the Gumby mission. Though it's rather pointless, I must say.

I have, however, found what you're referring to with Willy Dawson. The wall escape isn't actually in his cell, it's at the north end of the hall of jail cells. You'll have to search the wall to find it. Be prepared to fight a little.

If we accept Drakefyre's theory on Vahnatai creationism, it would make sense that they're stronger magically than humans, etc. I find no reason to not believe Drakey's theory.

I'd still like to smash some alien head, though. EDIT: Just the evil ones.

:eek:

I don't hate them THAT much. And why wipe out Ghirka?

Killing Rentar as a sidequest isn't such a bad idea, though not something that should be an early mission. Vahnatai, as dead as some of them should be, aren't weaklings.

Quite true, except for the statements "Exile is the past" and "A3 has enough vahnatai carnage fun." (Though I only speak from the perspective of E3, and I have yet to beat it, as I only got teh full version a few weeks ago, and all I know about the end is that you kill Vahnatai in your quest to nail Rentar Ihrno.) One mission of killing Vahnatai (or two, or three) is definately not enough to satisfy the bloodlust of the Church of Plah. And your former false statement pegs you as a HERETIC! :P

*slight topic resurrection, slight pain*

So I'm just hoping he'll make it into an Exile version as well?

And also that it's a big huge Vahnatai-slaying fest. Just because I've hated them after reading Drakey's theory…and because they're evil.

Don't ask about the hatred, it's just irrational and random. Sort of.

That's logical.

Though, seeing as it was used by priests who no doubt handled poisonous snakes, there's also the reasonable possiblity that it protects against poison.
