This kitty, too, sympathizes. Now (s)he's asking when (s)he gets his(or her) cookie.

So...I've been revived by Ephesos twice? Perhaps I should reconsider killing him and making him my undead minion (see my bonus script).

And recently, I can cast Ice Rain. Now all that's left for my fictional self to use is that Ice Blast spell from Geneforge, and any other ice spell in existence!

EDIT: Note to selfe, be sure to check for number of e's.

Hmm? Conspiracies? *quickly puts away something resembling a Penrose Triangle*

No conspiracies here, ESPECIALLY not ones involving non-Euclidean shapes!

Hmmm...I haven't appeared very recently. Perhaps the fictional me is planning to bring the glory of non-Euclidean shapes to the boards! Or not...

Anyway, it seems a bit od to be so paranoid about the boards eating a topic. It'd be pretty ironic if this topic were to be eaten, say...right about NOW!

Update: Nope, it's not eaten. This may be a good or bad thing.

I shall become a Genetic Engineer. Surrender your genes. Uhhh...so I may manipulate them!...for the better.

I've also been told I'm VERY good at writing, but I don't plan on living on publishing my writings (I still might write or publish a book at one point in my life).

And I prefer blunt objects or pointy sticks. And superstition makes for nothing more than a good read or for part of a game.

Zero Intelligence Creations in Geneforge Series
Guardian
Member # 2339
Profile #7
Ah, zero intelligence creatures.

I don't like them. They prevent me from focusing fire on the tough enemies, as well as preventing me from forming walls of my creations to prevent them from attacking my Shaper (who, more often than not, only ends up with 1 or 2 endurance, without items). Especially those nasty enemy melee creations, who seem to have some sort of grudge against my shaper.

I remember one time in GF1 or 2, in that place with the ghosts running faster than how quickly their hp dropped, I formed a wal with my creations, and I think I stayed in combat mode to ambush them when they hit the wall. It wouldn't be as easy to maintain that wall with zero-int creatures. They always spoil my tactics. And as a shaper, I could always spare the essence to give them intelligence.

All the fictional Zephyr Tempest does in combat is cast Ice Lances? There has to be more than that! If possible, could you use some ice spells from Avernum 4, Dikiyoba?

Either way...Yea combat!

How could you get to level 32 on a 30 level puzzle?

Went all the way to level 4...and answered that riddle incorrectly. But it did get me to level 20 anyway. Haha!

Great...the clue means nothing to me.

I never met a rat, bat or hawk...but a squirrel once started chittering angrily at my house back in Indiana. And my cat has scared more than a few mice. He doesn't eat with them, he plays with them...TO DEATH. Literally. He's flattened more than one mouse for trying to escape.

That depends on how they use their money, not how much money they have. Seeing as how I have the luck of a footless rabbit, I'm not sure if any 'get rich schemes' would work for me, short of someone deciding to give me the money right there and then.

I have a cat. He is black, and furry. And big...very, very, big. Houseguests have voted him as a 'mini black panther'. My dad believes he is a longer haired offshoot of a burmese. I've measured him a bit before he got bored and wandered off, and he is just short of a foot tall at the shoulder. I've estimated he's about three feet long, including his fluffy tail.

There's also the brain cupcake, but everyone tells me it's not real.

I'd post pictures of them, but I have an Olympus camera, and Olympas Master hates me. And the brain cupcake won't appear on film.

Blaeurgh. Wealthy people. Around 6% of the Earth's poplulation is so rich they control approximately 50% of the world's wealth. Common sense says we should take their stuff and divide it amongst ourselves, but their bribes and wealth-inspired influence make people say otherwise.

I hate wealthy people.

EDIT: By that, I meant people who acquired so much money, and use it to get more money, or use their money frivolously. There's got to be some people who use their wealth for things other than impressing people and buying unnecessary things. It just seems a waste that so much of the world's money is kept by so little of the population.
