Happy holidays Jeff, come back in one piece.

It workes on 10.4.8. It works for me any way. It's a PPC game but intel iMacs have Rosetta so it shouldn't be a problem.

Yes, we are making Nethergate 2.0!
This makes me happy, though I haven't finished the original. Maybe I should do that when I've got some free time, since I did get the game. Anyone else excited? (what a silly question to ask....)

Nope.

The new area is up a certain remote river (visited in early games but not Avernum 4). The obstructions in it were cleared by workers sent by the king to reach new areas for Avernum's growing population. There are predictable problems arising from this, but they aren't the main focus of the plot.

One of the nice things about setting a game is the underworld is, dude, there are always more caves. :-)

Hmm now where could that be?

Low spell usage in Geneforge 4: Rebellion
Shaper
Member # 247

I played a Servile warrior right through, with no battle magic and no mental magic use. I basically depended on Blessing magic. But even there my top spell was Essence armor. I had regeneration for my top healing spell. Otherwise i just blessed and hacked away. Wingbolts were particularly difficult as they kept running away and I had no way to stop them, save cornering.

The Melee Warrior in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

Exactly. Why would I want major heal, when I don't even have enough points in healing craft? It just seems like there's an abundance of "spell" canisters.

I felt severely underpowered as a servile melee warrior. Even now when I've been tromping around some of the harder areas like Matala (sp?), I still fell like I can't hit. My damage is nearly 200 + after two swings. But that isn't enough to take a wing-bolt down. A third swing however would be perfect for many situations. I just didn't feel as powerful as in pervious G1-G3 games.

And, what's with all the canisters that boost spells? I would rather have +1 to strength or healing craft or spell-craft or dexterity. I could have gotten through the game using no canisters. They simply aren't beneficial to a warrior.
Oh well, I probably just put my skill points into the wrong areas like melee weapons and such. Excellent game though.

The lanterns where fun. I only used them once or twice in the begining. But my character seemed to be glowing any way, so light wasn't a huge issue. :)

I hope you have a scarf too because that wouldn't do much for your ears or cheeks. Toque, that's what you need.

It was cold here. But now it's warmer -14C or so. I like driving in the snow and laughing at people on the coast that don't know how.

Yellow is by far the colour of mod.

I hate words with too manu vowels, Dioecious, perhaps.

Best Game Ever? in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

Excellent! The combat was interesting, sometimes frustrating. But in the end it just seemed more "real" than many games. It was like playing through a story and not playing just to do sh1t.

Every Geneforge game I just end up dieing or something horrible. The first time I played mosly loyal to the Shapers with the hopes of creating a stalmate at the last control panel. But ahhh I gave up the Unbound's plans to Alwan. Apparently that was a huge problem.So the Drakons chop my head off. I really wanted to help the Trakovites but I didn't realise giving the plans way was so crucial.

BTW: Is there any way I could read all of the various endings without playing through multiple times, which I don't have time for. Thanks.
