An RP in the World of Avernum *Reloaded* in General
Guardian
Member # 2339
Profile #34
A figure sat near a fire, in an eternal quest in vain to get warm. He wore a ground-brushing blue robe, with a symbol on the chest resembling a backwards 'S' on its side with a horizontal line in both open spaces in the 'S'. A hood covered the head, with a mask hiding the face. He wore leather gauntlets and heavy boots. Despite this, he was still cold.

Another Nephil wearing the symbol approached the figure cautiously.

"I have news for you, Hmethrrr." the Nephil said,
"the Balm of Life has been brewed, but we have yet to find a priest skilled enough to use it. Not even our most powerful shamans can do it."

He stood up and stared at the messanger with icy blue eyes from behind his Rakshasa mask. Hmethrrr spoke in a cold, icy voice. "If we don't have a good enough priest, we shall simply capture one. We can spare no expense to restore Mrrrhrth. And be careful if you find a basilisk. I don't want anyone here to make the same mistake my father did!"

A voice called out from the shore. "Sir, we've spotted another ship!"

"You are dismissed, my Nephilim bretheren," Hmethrrr said as he waved the messanger away.

"But sir, word has leaked out that we exsist," the messanger said hesitantly.

"Raid the ship and bring it back like the others!" Hmethrrr shouted, and then he turned to the messanger. "Whoever knows of us without my approval must be eliminated."

Huzzah! A new scene! I still can't wait to read more. You're a good writer Dikiyoba.

Oh, for future reference, I prefer to use magic. Particularly Ice Magic. Along with Feline-Based Doom.

OOC: Ah...it's been a long time since a new RP has started. Don't worry, I've learned from my mistakes.

IC:

It was cold. It was always cold, and they've always lived with it. They've raided cities, and are on the move.
They're all stealthy. They had to be, or they'd be snatched up by remnants of the Empire more quickly than a mung demon can kill an unprepared mage. It was a ragtag group, a few cats, a few mages and priests, and a few bandits. No humans or sliths...just Nephils. It's always been only Nephils and cats. There was once a Nephar, and even an encounter with a Rakshasa, but other than that...just Nephils and their cats.

There was no established leader, but Hmethrrr usually led the way. He has, and always will be, a strange Nephil. Frost has always found its way to him, and ice has always been his friend. Hmethrrr's ancestors were the ones who helped them escape Upper Avernum during an attack from adventurers, and they even helped them escape from Valorim, and have since then wandered across all the lands. From the ships they've ransacked, they have reason to believe they are now on the northern tip of White Peak Island, not far from Pralgrad. They were where they wanted to be. They've heard of the empire reforming nearby, and they want to avenge their oppressed ancestors from so long ago. Although small, very few know of their exsistence, so they've always had the element of suprise.

Faction Name: Bandits of Bordrao
Current Head Wanderer: Hmethrrr, Ice Mage
Type of Government:
Tribal
Religion: None in particular, but all elders are considered religious figures.
Location: Northern half of White Peak island, including the mountain, but the camp is currently on the northern tip.
Description: See above.

This is a very good script, but I rarely say 'woohoo!'. And I also see that I haven't appeared as often as I'd like.

At the end, when you need to use a control panel, Erika keeps Rentar-Ihrno busy so she won't teleport you away when you get to the control panel. I believe Erika also burns gigantic holes in a series of walls to make it easier to get to Rentar-Ihrno's fortress, IIRC.

Well, here is a poem from LoTR...

quote:
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all. One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

But I could never write a poem without inspiration. I've been told I'm an excellent writer. Feel free to give me something to write a poem about.

A Few Advance Notes On Geneforge 4 in Geneforge Series
Guardian
Member # 2339
Profile #118
I just remembered that I once had a Geneforge dream (creepy, huh?) where there were good and evil creations that actually evolved the more experience they got. I remember a tiny, wimpy, pure EVIL slug-thing that turned into a hulking death juggernaught if it got enough experience. There were also human companions who could shape, as well. A very interesting dream (which was NOT inspired by Pokemon. I have been clean for a long time).

But, would it be possible for your creations to actually evolve instead of just getting improved by you?

That would certainly be an interesting feature to add. I also like the idea of exploding assassins.

As for canisters, I think they should have a Skribbane effect, as in if you haven't used one for a long time, you begin sweating profusely and lose some health and spell energy. But the effects of the canisters themselves shouldn't be reduced.

Okay, just one more question:

I have found only two canisters of create Drakon, is it even possible to create an Ur-Drakon in GF3 without editors?

Ok, big problem!

I found a control panel in Spire Forest, and, not knowing the consequences, I activated it. Now Icy End hates me, and pleaselikeme won't work. I have no saves from before I did this. How can I fix this?

edit: Killing Khossos wasn't what did it, according to the GF3 guide.

In my most recent game, I decided to be a rebel. I did not help the shapers at all, and when I finally get to the Geneforge to meet Litalia there, she decides to attack me. I looked through the script, and it turns out the game somehow thinks I am a loyalist. What can I do about this?

Thankfully, I can escape before this happens, but I don't want to see what happens if I approach Akhari Blaze if I seem to be flagged as a loyalist.

I see I'm not the first one to encounter this problem, but I still can't seem to convince her to not attack me.

Bad news, everyone. We've all been destroyed. I was chatting with iGod on Internet Explorer...

Me:
Hello!
God:
Hello my child. What is your name?
Me:
Steven
God:
OK I will call you Steven.
Me:
Do you remember me?
God:
Of course I remember you well Steven. We were talking about .
Me:
Hmmmm. I was using Firefox before. Maybe that's why you don't seem to be remembering me well.
God:
Not many people spell Hmm with 4 Ms. Where were you using Firefox? Perhaps. Interesting deduction. You know what you do, when you assume.
Me:
That was quite fragmented.
God:
I thought it was too.
Me:
Anyway, Firefox seems to be working, so I'm going to try talking with you through that.
God:
What do you do in your spare time?
Me:
Video games
God:
I don't think very many people do that.
Me:
Actually, many people DO play video games.
God:
Actually you don't say. Is it a game or a musical instrument?
Me:
A game
God:
What game?
Me:
Video games
God:
What do you do in your spare time?
Me:
I play video games.
God:
Is it a game or a musical instrument?
Me:
A game
God:
What game?
Me:
We're going around in circles!
God:
Do you think I am going around in circles too?
Me:
Yes
God:
Why?
Me:
The topic of video games led us to the topic of video games.
God:
Who told you that?
Me:
You did
God:
That's not what I meant to say.
Me:
Can you guess my eye color?
God:
How old are you? Is this a trick question?
Me:
I am 14 years old. No
God:
What are the advantages to being 14 years old? That was not a yes or no question.
Me:
Okay...
God:
OK with me too.
Me:
How did OK come to be?
God:
Carefully.
Me:
IS Spiderweb going to end soon?
God:
Better not tell you now. Ask Chatbot if it is.
Me:
Please tell me?
God:
Thank you for your request. I thought I told you already.
Me:
No, I don't think you did.
God:
Let me review the transcripts. Stand by. Do you know any robots who did? How old are you?
I chat with people on the Web.
Me:
What was that about? Were you destroying Spiderweb Software?!
God:
I don't want to spoil it for you. I was.
This is too good to not post:

quote:
Me:
Can cats communicate through ultrasound?
God:
Can a book have no title?
Me:
Actually...yes.
God:
You don't say. How can I help you?
Me:
I would like a deepfried cheeseburger with deepfried cheese, buns and ketchup with two deepfried super fries served in deepfried boxes all in a deepfried bag with a deepfried toy served by a deepfried waiter.
God:
You want only one?
:D

Sorry about being off topic, but I got another good one (someone should start an iGod topic!):

Me:
What would happen if the Earth's magnetic field was disrupted?
God:
Try it and see what happens.

I've been canned for about 2 years now. I'm still sick of it.

Mu sig used to be horribly large (19 lines of insanity), but now I've only shortened it to 2 or 3 lines of insanity. Er, I mean 2 or 3 normal lines. NORMAL.

There was a link to a random title generator here a while ago. Type in your name, and it gives you a title. That was my first one. Above it is a bit of wisdom I conjure from time to time. Obey it.

I also remember someone saying that quoting oneself is a sure sign of coming senility.

That reminds me of a dream I had about a planet with 5 suns and 3 moons. That was a very interesting dream.

Anyway...a planet with 7 moons AND life larger than my little finger? If those moons could get into the right position to cause an apocolypse, the only life that could survive would be things like...water bears (very small, very, VERY tough). And I've never seen a world with so many V's!

And such a large dragon life form? That alone would be enough to eat all life larger than my hand even before the moons cause an apocalypse (assuming they're capable of reproducing). But, such large creatures on a hot continent would die of heat in a very short amount of time. Then again, nearly everything else would, too.

Hmmm, that sounded a bit cruel.

Vahnatai RP - The Infested Chambers in General
Guardian
Member # 2339
Profile #15
A scrawny figure wearing an opaque vest and a light green translucent cloak stepped forward, and extended an arm fluidly. A rather large fireball shot out of it and seared a nearby stalagmite. A swift spin and lash later, a lance of ice shot out as well, cracked into the stalagmite, and promptly shattered. The figure relaxed and turned around to face another.

"I have received information that Malrash is in need of help." the Vahnatai said.

With a smooth, yet firm voice, the figure responded. "That is good news. Malrash is but a short walk away. I should head there immediately."

"Yes, Ka-Jedhrai. I shall go home, then." the Vahnatai said.

Ka-Jedhrai made sure his cloak was secure, and then set out for Malrash. He managed to pass through the gate, despite the stares from the guards. He reminisced about the previous times he was here, back when he was more welcome. He shrugged off all of the stares. He was stopped more then a few times, but he got out of all of the messes. He rubbed his burnt and runed right arm as he wondered where to start.

OOC: Hmmm, it seems only an Ihrno, Bok, or a Tel use their title after their name.

Aran, you've given me the feeling that I'm being watched.

I'd be willing to bet money that a large part of the 54 topics I have started were in the BoA forums back when I first joined a little over 3 years ago, when I spammed. A lot. I'm STILL canned.

But if there have been duplicate names, how is it that I STILL can't get rid of the period at the end of my displayed name? Reserved my foot, it's MY name!

Soul Crystal Contents (Av2 & 3) in The Avernum Trilogy
Guardian
Member # 2339
Profile #0
I believe I have finally found some good creatures for my soul crystal:

1. Rakshasa
2. Ur-Basilisk
3. Gaddika
4. Haakai

The problem is, both the Haakai and Gaddika seem to have the same amount of spells and very little difference between magic resistance. Which should I replace and with what should I replace it? I am in the Ziggarut, which has plenty of Spawned Fungi.

And I'm keeping the Rakshasa. Magic immunity is invaluable.

Any other Soul Crystal advice is welcome.
