Well, if you hate me, fine. Go for it. If you don't want to try to work things out. Okay. You're entitled to that.

On a note: It wasn't the level of suspense I wanted to stop the fight on, but I made James have to run away. You can at least give me some credit on that. James broke Geltor's cheap sword, he'll get another one.

"Oh what the hell," James said with a heavy tone of anger in his voice, "you know what, forget the spells... This turning out to be pretty bad. In my haste I'd forgotten my own ineptitude. Seoth, you are a fool and will probably die, though not by my own hands. Noric, you probably would have been better off running away." James then reached into one of his pockets and pulled out a black orb the size of a marble and tossed it at Geltor, who promptly dodged it. James then said, "Geltor, I apologize for the poor quality of this fight, not that you really care I'm sure, but there are too many distraction here to give you the attention you deserve. We will continue this later. Keep that communication orb. When I am ready and able, I will contact you." With said, James grabbed Noric and teleported off.

Geltor picked the orb up and examined it. "What is this I feel," Geltor thought to himself. The orb had this strange familiarity to him, as if he had seen something like it before. He soon noticed ancient arcane writings on the object, which even he could not figure out the meaning of." As he studied the orb, it resonated a strange, yet familiar dark energy. Within seconds he had the answer. "How would a god have one of those," Geltor thought to himself, "and why would he give to me?"

I rather liked A4, the interface was different from the A1 - A3, and overall was better. Also, the part where there was no indoor/outdoor map thing, was surprisingly nice. It made things more interesting.

I don't know crap about C++, but between me and TGO(assuming he doesn't end up in space with his buick or get thrown in jail... again...), we could possibly do something spiffy cool with this, even though, historically, neither of us have ever done anything that even vaguely resembles useful or cool, let alone a combination of the two.

So the real question is: Does anyone know where I can get a good(and/or free) compiler for OS 9? And, more importantly, for that matter PC?

EDIT: Cause if there's anything that my programming experience with BASIC and JAVA has taught me is that you can code anything if you have enough of the right well-commented out examples to steal from.

BoG... I'd buy it if it isn't as hard to script at BoA. and is as easy to work as BoE. If those were the cases, I'd even go out and get a job to get that game.

"Well, Geltor," James said, "This is quite unfortunate. I wanted to completely destroy you, but it seems my 1-shot kill trick failed. And to top it off, I destroyed your really nice sword, which is currently the most tragic thing about this fight. Really good swords are hard to find. Tell you what, I'm going to put away the sword, before I accidentally drop in a storm drain or it flies out of my hand and kills a small child or something like that, and we'll just battle each other with nothing more than our own bodies with magics, psionics, and raw power." With that said, James returned his sword to his sheath, placed his sheath in one of his countless jacket pockets, and began to cast a spell...

That's equipment and class/racial/character features. Nothing more. In terms of divine power, James is horribly lacking, but that never was his strength in D&D. He's a weak god. Always has been. However, James is epic and therefor, not a complete pushover, just as everyone should be. And Yumi? She was for entertainment value. That's about it.

This is one of the many reasons why I wanted fights to be co-ordinated between the participants. Ever wonder why I didn't care very much about the 'overpowered' stuff Safey was doing? It's cause, while unreasonable at times, it doesn't matter too much as long as he makes it look good and doesn't piss off too many people doing it. REMEMBER: Fights are not the point of this game. Period.

It's about storyline and character development. Plot, people, plot. Great Power is boring without Great Story. That's why we RP, or at least that's why I do it. The story.

EDIT:

Sidenote: For the record, it's not entirely my fault that not one of us has completely established what our characters' powers and capabilities are before hand.

More Sidenote: Seriously, would it kill us to work together on the fights to make them work better?! Oh well, enough talk about it. I'm taking action...

MORE EDIT:

Holy crap this fight is chaotic and quite annoying. Let's try to avoid doing these too much in future.

Geltor swung his mighty sword at James, which James promptly dodged with lightning speed. "Um, Geltor, quick question," James stated, "I you can't hit me, what good is your blade? And your crappy little substance you claim is poisonous?" "If you're so confident that demon's blood won't harm you, then why don't you cower?" "Sorry," James replied, "I expected more from a Demon God. Also, I would like to apologize in advanced for destroying whatever the hell it is you have that resembles a soul." James rushed up to Geltor, drew his katana, and shouted, "Stone Cleaving Sword," as he cut Geltor's sword in half. "Hmmmm," James said to himself, "I'd also like to apologize for the sword. If it makes you feel any better, I actually was aiming at you."

Safey, Yumi has left already. She wondered off to do whatever the hell it is that pure good beings with great power, wisdom, and the mentality of a child do. Thus basically removing her from the game for now. Fortunately, that's not going to be an issue.

Anyway, James basically has this fight won, now. So, Safey, think hard about how you want to develop your character.

Making a scenario in BoA... never could figure out how to do that one. I'm better off trying to learn how to program in freakin' Java than making a BoA scenario.

"2 on one hardly seems fair, Geltor. I was hoping to play the game without a rigged deck. Oh well," James said with a smile and he started doing some strange hand gestures, "Yumi, goddess of butterflies, I summon thee!" With his sentence completed, there was a blinding flash of pure white light and butterflies. James pointed his finger at Shreen, and said, "That guy just killed a butterfly, because he's mean and hates butterflies." Without any more encouragement, Yumi summoned a swarm of butterflies. "Butterflies?! I'm a demon," Shreen said in his stereotypical demonic voice, "what could those pathetic insects do to me?!" "This is going to be a lot more brutal than I expect," James said to himself. Within seconds, the butterflies swarmed Shreen, completely tearing him apart. "What the hell," Geltor shouted, "Butterflies can't do that!" "I know that and you know that," James replied, "but do you want to tell her that? I think not."

Having dispatched the demon, Yumi soon wondered off, chasing a butterfly in her normal, overly cheerful fashion. "So, Geltor, do you want to do this the right way, one on one," James said slyly, "Or do I have to do a repeat of that?"

Or they tried to micormanage and say I should have done this instead of that without offering me any advice on what I should do now. I apperciate niether of those.
That's nice. You should pay attention, though. To solve a problem, you must first know that there is a problem. We told you about the problem. We were also trying to fix the problem, but clearly were not doing in a matter that suited you... Oh well. It's quite unfortunate.

Safey, you and I should talk about what to do now. It's down to Geltor, his random minion, and James. Looks like I'll have to even the odds.

EDIT: Make that James vs Geltor again. Seriously, we should co-ordinate this fight so that it makes the other players feel it was worth all the bs and hype.

That's cool. I hope when I get done with the demon lord thing, I can put James through a scenario that's at least half as interesting what you two are up to. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens there with y'all.

EDIT: At the very least, I intend for that fight I have to do to be interesting. I hope everyone involved puts in an appropriate amount of effort. After all, we're trying to make out drawn out dialogs and fighting interesting so people will look forward to reading it... Or at least that's what I'm going for.

Okay, I wasn't sure where the hell we were doing that at. Thanks for the clarification.

Your character, though powerful, can't be omnipotent,omniscient , or omnipresent;
Tell that to Wizards of the Coast. Multi-deity pantheons and all of them have very keen sense. There's no sneaking up on them, really.

Safey, exactly how does that demon make himself undetectable? Let's just get that out of the way. It's an interesting, though unreasonable, concept, but the details of how it works are very important, because I legitimately have ways to get through some possible methods.

I'm not saying they're not dangerous. I'm not saying that several of them aren't a threat. I'm saying, 1 demon is no match for a god, definitely not on the fly. that's all.

EDIT: Unless that demon is also a god, but that's because it's then a god vs god fight.
More EDIT: I'll continue this discussion at a time other than tonight.

Safey, Let's just establish one basic principle. A demon, even an upper-lv one, can't take on a god, not by itself. Period. Look at Diablo 2, it took the 3 most powerful demon lords to corrupt an arch-angel(the next closest thing to a god), or 2 to beat one down.

I'll break it down to you like this(important ones noted in bold):

regular people < demons
regular people < angels
regular people < undead -usually-
demons > undead -usually
undead < angels
demons = angels
arch angels < gods
demon lords > regular demons
demon lords < gods
arch angels > normal angels
demon lord = arch angel
demon god = god

EDIT: I hope I have been at least somewhat helpful.
