It is a jewel, yes. Triggered by someone who asked for help with 'the Hak-Kahz ruin thingie', which he then changed to 'Khaz-Haz Ruins scenario'. He was playing 'The Za-Khazi Run'.

Don't get mad at me, Lifecrafter, but reading this I remembered SkeleTony who, trying to decode a post like yours once wrote the following (which I saved because I still enjoy it, though Ephesos thought it a bit too strong):
quote:

One is in a box in one of those spider infected rooms you pass shortly after you've come down into the lower level, one is in one of the pools, a third in a secret niche at the north of the goblin infected area. The fourth one across the lava can be a little difficult should your party's health points not be up to walking the fire, but you don't need it anyway.

You'll love your stay. This is a very beautiful old city with a very active modern night-life, so beware. ;)
Did you know that Budapest's metro is the oldest in continental europe? And it's just three hours by train to Vienna.

I guess I'll install phpBB or punBB and just drop the old forum, as it is open to the Invision exploitation bug anyway because of its age.

As some idiot, who probably thought himself funny has hacked my admin board, I've blocked access to the Interim forum. I'll come up with a solution to the problem during the next couple of days.

Saddam Hussein's Execution in General
Guardian

I'd like to quote part of a comment I read on BBC.
quote:
An execution should be the most solemn of ceremonies. More so than church, more so than a funeral. Without respect for the condemned, no matter the crime, witnesses are participating in a lynching... another murder.
The question remains however how that mobile phone was smuggled into the execution chamber, and who ordered the shootage. What looks so spontaneous can well have been staged, so who profits. And how come the thing was on YouTube in almost next to no time.

Our media said that he was executed in the early morning hours of December 30th. Did yours give a different date?

It's so stupid, it makes me wonder if the U.S. was involved in setting the date.
Regardless of whether they were or not, I'm afraid that people in arab countries will conclude that they must have been. And may understand this choice as one of deliberate disrespect for islamic tradition and islamic faith.

Not to be a smartass, but I think his death brought closure to many grieving families in Iraq. That probably recompenses them better than a mere life sentence.

Can't you adapt some of Joaquin Soto's trees or bushes to your needs? You'll find them in The Louvre. Ephesos had a 'cleaned up' png-version of some of them: Topic:Graphics request.

The Louvre hosts custom graphics for BoA. It also has a section that explains how to create them.

edit: for monster stats or terrrain/item definitions read the manual.
