Sanity Check in General

This poll is completely invalid, because the last question's options should have been select at most 2 checkboxes, rather than radio buttons. And the first question needs a "none of the above option". Besides, there is too many speling and grammatical errors.

MOO (Master of Orion) and MoM (Master of Magic) are the only really old games I've played recently.

Yes, the third option is probably winning an SW game in a contest, which several people have done. (I found BoE to be a fitting prize for SubTerra design contest.) Talking about which, why isn't SubTerra in this poll?

Please, explain to the dimwit.

Just like with other examples of basic research, most of the benefits will be something we can't currently predict. For example, when USSR and USA were "wasting" massive amounts of money on the space race, most people couldn't predict communication satellite networks, GPS, weather monitoring satellites, etc. So while the public is attracted by prospects of Mars vacations, the real benefits will probably come from currently unexpected technological advances.

On the original question, I think Chinese will get to the Moon first, because they are the only ones willing to put required amounts of money and effort into it. However, return to the Moon is just a prelude to the next step: Mars race. And I have no idea how that one is going to turn out, because Americans should get pretty passionate about not being outshined by China. Whether America still has enough of a space program by then to mount a reasonable effort is another question.

IFM, if you aspire to be a writer, you should start by reading real books. It sounds from your scripts like your last exposure to literature was watching afternoon cartoons on TV. The problems with posting stuff that sounds like it was written by an 8 year old for 8 year olds is that nobody here is an 8 year old and it's been a while since any of us enjoyed afternoon cartoons.

It actually isn't. I've counted at some point and the proportion of Jews on Spidweb (about 5%) is the same as the proportion in overall American population. (The way I counted is by counting the number of Jews replying to some "happy whatever Jewish holiday it was" topic and dividing it by total number of active posters that month.)

1. Ephesos can match Lazarus in BoA design, so after days of struggle both contestants will return to our arena, cursing Slarty for making them fight through the most annoying BoA scenarios ever made. In the physical realm, Lazarus’ only advantage (ability to come back from the dead) can be countered by Ephesos’ crickets tearing his body into tiny pieces. So the match will be decided by RETRIBUTION!!!
Winner: Ephesos.

2. This battle will be quite heated, to say the least. In fact, the arguments will get so intense that Alec will abandon his scimitar and resort to good old “Two Fisted Fury”. Unfortunately for him, that attack works much better in online arguments than in real fights, where his fists will be no match for the Demonslayer.
Winner: Infernal.

3. In addition to various writing implements, Nicothodes also has some martial arts training (if I remember correctly). However, neither pens nor fists are useful against dinosaurs, and Sherbiebaby will not be able to even slow them down. Even the cuteness will work against Nico, simply adding more power to Diki’s next script: “Everybody Dies Part 2.1”, subtitled “The Tragic Death of Cuteness”.
Winner: Diki.

4. After Reverend Moon gets squashed by Thralni’s vege-chickens, we’ll be left with two fights: Sailor Moon vs. vege-chickens, and flying Thralni vs. Thuryl’s puns, Kool-Aid and emoticons. With such a wide array of tools to use against offensive-less Thralni, Thuryl should be able to come up with some way of bringing him close enough to the ground to use in his next unethical biological experiment.
Winner: Thuryl.

5. Vlish is a creation. Synergy is a PC. He should know enough about training missile using PCs to destroy any opponent before it gets in a single shot. However, there is a complication here: Synergy’s tendency to deliver long philosophical monologues. If Synergy can delay the monologue until after Vlish’s death, he will win. Otherwise he will lose. I haven’t seen too many long monologues lately, so I am guessing that Synergy will win, leaving the audience to go to sleep under the sound of his voice.
Winner: Synnergy.

6. This will be the shortest match in the tournament, because Tyranicus will stumble and break his neck while walking into the Arena.
Winner: MagmaDragoon.

7. If even the horrifying powers of Homeland failed to defeat Riibu, Alex’s stick figures will not have any effect either. However, they will be able to swarm around their master, preventing Riibu from reaching him. With dangerous Chaos Attack as her only weapon, Riibu is unlikely to survive the number of castings required to clear away all of Alex’s creations without at least one backfire.
Winner: Alex.

8. What do you think has happened to Saunders' old account? :eek:
Winner: Schrodinger.

Crap. After a day of trying, Nalyd can't do it. All of his Spiderweb games are on a separate computer, which used to be his mom's but when she got a new one, she gave it to him. He uses a huge multitude of backup discs to port new scenarios from this one, which is the only one with internet access, to his, which the Spiderweb games are on. He has failed, however, in putting the registered version of BoA on this computer, so he can't get to his party, which, believe it or not, isn't in VoTDT. So you'll have to go on his word. So he's going to give up now and quietly crawl into his corner of death.
You can just copy the picture from your BoA computer to this one the same way you copy scenarios from your internet computer to your BoA one:

1. On your BoA computer, open the game that has your super party.
2. Press the Print Screen (Prnt Scrn) key. (Or MAC equivalent.)
3. Open Paint (Start->Programs->Accessories->Paint) or MAC equivalent, and Paste in the picture.
4. (optional) Select the important part of the picture and copy it into new window.
5. Save the picture to a floppy disk, or USB drive.
6. Put your floppy disk, or USB drive into the computer with internet access.
7. Go to http://imageshack.us/ Click Browse button, select your picture, and click Host it! button.
8. Paste the link here.

Zorro is not Zeviz.
You were talking about Zorro in that post.

My method of choosing whom to vote for is:
1. Is there a good joke I can make?
2. If not, is one of the fighters obviously far more powerful than the other?
3. If not, will one of the fighters give opportunity for more fun battles in the future?
4. If not (and only in that case), which of the two would I rather see advance?
If somebody tries very hard to be annoying, I might look for a way to justify their loss, but normally my decision is made long before we get to the last tie-braking question.

I protest that comparison! Some of us (myself and Riibu included) actually play Runescape on occasion, as it is more of an acquired taste than a poorly designed game. The only gameplay in common is comparing countless hours of snake-killing to countless hours of (insert monster)-killing.

Many people simply aren't into RS, but few indeed are masochistic enough to seek out the horror that is Homeland, which simply has to be experienced to truly be appreciated.

Actually, this is the point of my comparison. I know plenty of people who hate Runescape with the same burning passion you reserve for Homeland. In reality, neither game deserves its reputation as a paragon of terrible design. (Neither game is particularly good either, but I've seen far worse, especially among BoE scenarios.)

EDIT: (On a completely unrelated note.)

Seriously, what game is that? Who knows? Somebody tell me.

It's a single-player RPG with gameplay (and reputation) reminiscent of Runescape, and very old 3-D graphics that make characters look like marionetts. However, in Diki's scripts the game is a lethal weapon, so that's what we are assuming for this match. :P

PS The game used to be distributed by Spidweb, when Jeff wanted to try acting as a publisher for other developers, but apparently they disowned it so completely that it can't be found anywhere on Spidweb's webpage now. Here is the download page for the demo from the author's page: http://www.dragonlore.com/Download.shtml

1. WKS begins the match by mesmerizing Jewels with his sutras. Out of respect to CoC, I’ll leave the rest of it to your imagination.
Winner: WKS.

2. The majority of this match consists of Ash running through a maze, collecting gems and massacring rats with a chainsaw, while Christian Rock plays in the background. Eventually, he will find the way to open secret entrance, come out behind Smoo, and push him into the hardest SubTerra level ever made. This Ash-created level is practically unwinnable, so Smoo is trapped forever.
Winner: Ash.

3. This will be an epic battle of ever more powerful spells and missiles that would threaten to tear the very fabric of reality by unleashing forces not meant for our plane of existence. Fortunately, at the moment when destruction of universe seems inevitable Goldenking’s pizza shield will crack, leaving him vulnerable to Zephyr’s barrage of spells.
Winner: Zephyr Tempest.
PS Did I mention that the most valuable skill in this battle will be Zephyr’s god-modding?

4. Unfortunately for Marlenny her sex appeal isn’t going to work on Nico and while pen might not always be mightier than a sword, it’s definitely mightier than paper survey.
Winner: Nico.

5. MD’s guardian skills are more than a match for IFM’s muffins. And MagmaDragoon, being a cartoon character himself, can’t be surprised by transformations either. So the match will come down to MD’s persistence and enthusiasm vs. IFM’s flaming, and flamming. Persistence will win in the end, and we’ll have muffins for a snack before next match.
Winner: MD.

6. I should probably avoid judging this match, because I am too tempted to list all EVOL ways of dealing with MM.

7. Niemand’s Jade Halberd gives him a clear advantage in a regular fight. A third dimension would also normally be an advantage. Unfortunately for him, SoT’s elegant functions reduce him back to two dimensions, projecting Jade Halberd into a line. Niemand tries to respond with a complicated script that turns this line into a powerful weapon, but SoT’s Occam’s Razor cuts it back down to a stick. So we are left with Nemesis armed with a stick against SoT’s rocks and trinities. The ice-cream trinity can slow Nemesis down sufficiently for SoT’s rocks to have their deadly effect.
Winner: SoT.

8. Neither of the participants in this match can see the other. This prevents Riibu from using her Chaos Attack, as well as preventing any direct physical confrontation. However, Lurker can still use his ultimate weapon: Homeland. As soon as he starts playing this game, most spectators will scream in horror. Riibu’s screams will guide Lurker’s aim as he throws the game’s lethal box at Riibu’s head.
Winner: The Lurker.

Considering that Nemesis' card says "Mild-mannared" and most of Nikki's skills are non-physical, why did the judge decide that this match should be resolved by physical combat?

If Lazarus can win using BoA skills that aren't even on his character sheet, why can't Nikki win by using poetry to impress, distract, or inspire depression? (Or even by threatening to leave Nemesis out of Project Spidweb? :P )

(Nikki's character gives opportunity for much more fun scenarios, so while I like both participants in this match, it would be more fun to see Nikki in future rounds.)

On the cards, blue border indicates a mod, and red number indicates a non-original account, right?

Also, are the pictures new, or from some older thread? (I guess elements are from Periodic Table, and actors are from recent actor thread.)

5. I call upon the judge for an overrulling of the majority vote in this match if it contrasts my logic. As I am about to explain, Nalyd must win. As per definition of the deathmatch; the match is to the death. Almost every description has stated that Nalyd will kill Lazarus. Many state more than once. The first time Lazarus is dead, the match has ended and Nalyd had won. For support, I will draw your attention to Star Trek: TNG Season 1 Episode 104: Code of Honor in which Natasha Yarr is abducted then proposed to by a big burly black man. The man's current wife challenges Yarr to a deathmatch. Yarr strikes a fatal blow but immediately beams herself and her opponent aboard the Enterprise where the wife is revived. Yarr was still declared the winner of said deathmatch though her opponent was no longer dead. Allowing Lazarus to win in this match, where most agree he will die first, guarantees him the Championship and invalidates the whole premise.

Nalyd must win.
...

The reason your logic doesn't apply to this case is that in your example the winner refused to continue the fight, arguing that it was over. However, (as Nalyd has proven with his multi-edited multiple posts in this thread :P ), he is far too stubborn to be stopped by such a minor detail as his opponent being dead. And when the opponent gets up, it would be far more in character for Nalyd to attack him with increased fury, rather than to stop and think about the rules and the ways of using them to avoid the fight.

Spoon feeding the player: clues in Blades of Avernum
Nuke and Pave
Member # 24
Profile Homepage #20
Thralni, for future reference, you'll get more accurate results from your polls if you don't make one of the answer options sound much more favorable. "Spoonfeeding" is something you do to a 3 year old child, so people are a lot less likely to select that insulting option. More neutral options would be:
1. I prefer direct narration.
2. I prefer puzzles.

With that in mind, while I like occasional well-made, well-integrated puzzles, I prefer direct narration for larger scenarios.

This depends largely on the type of scenario you are making: something like Zankoozie's Big Mistake (if I remember the name correctly) is intended as a fun collection of puzzles. However, if role playing is supposed to be important, the best way to ruin the mood (and make me abandon a scenario) is to throw in a bunch of lever puzzles, or leave me with no idea where to go, forcing me to close the game and look up hints/walkthroughs.

So if you are making a role-playing scenario (rather than a purely puzzle-based one) make sure that all puzzles make sense from the character's point of view: "Which NPC could be the 'tall man in black cloak with piercing blue eyes and a slight limp' that a little boy had seen last night?" is a good kind of puzzle. "Which four letter word do I say to Jane the shopkeeper to get her to tell me about last night's robbery?" is not a good kind of puzzle.

Member # 24

My favorite genre is TBS, including anything from Master of Magic and Master of Orion to Civilization 4.

I also like RPGs in the style of Spidweb games and Baldur's Gate. Simetimes I play MMORPGs, just to kill time. Those are the main 2.5 genres of games I like.

PS Aran, when will you finally learn that the more you boast about your moderator powers the more people will figure out ways around them.

1. I am assuming Escalibur is a good boy and would hesitate to hit a girl. Infernal has no such disadvantage.
Winner: Infernal

2. Nioca's Quick Action will allow him a first shot, which allows him to fire off his Smite at the start of the battle. However, DV has an impressive aresenal as well. His Daze spells can disable an opponent, while he closes in for the kill. The main uncertainty in this battle comes from the tendency of our favorite vlish to go rogue when he takes significant damage. If he goes rogue before he gets a chance to fire off Daze, Nioca can Smite him to death before he gets in mellee range. According to the episodes, DV can survive some wounds without going rogue, so it's Fiesty Tentacle Slap of Pain time!
Winner: DV.

3. Lord Grim has a ranged attack (Ripper Disks) Silent Assasin doesn't. Lord Grim posts on these forums directly. Silent Assasin doesn't.
Winner: Lord Grim.

4. First Andra clubs the chickens. Then she clubs Thralni. And she doesn't even have to use her "special" attack.
Winner: Andra.

5. Nalyd kills Lazarus with a fireball. Lazarus gets up. Nalyd angrily complains and kills Lazarus again. Lazarus gets up again. Nalyd starts indiscriminately throwing around fireballs, frying himself in the process. Lazarus gets up and finishes badly burned Nalyd.
Winner: Lazarus.

6. Spray Acid!
Winner: Randomizer.

7. Dainslaif can easily beat a mechanical pencil, but the pencil is poisoned. Nemesis collapses next to Nikki's body and dies from poison, in a classic tragic ending.
Winner: None. (Everybody dies!)

8. Saunders' fluffy turtles have no impact, because, being a long-time member, Stew Boy has no sanity left. She could still beat him quite easily, but her motherly instincts prevent her from hurting a little boy, who reminds her of her son. This allows Stew Boy to pull off first unexpected upset of this match.
Winner: Stew Boy.

So you are using "RPG" label for style, rather than mechanic? I guess that makes sence, because it is possible to "role play" when playing games like GalCiv2 and Civ4. There are two different ways to play these games: role-playing a leader, or treating the game like a complicated version of chess.

Your best bet is to e-mail Jeff (spidweb@spiderwebsoftware.com) and ask. I know it's still possible to register RW games, so it might also be possible to register Homeland.

Nioca, and to answer your question, because Homeland is no worse than Runescape, and Runescape has hundreds of thousands of players.

Thanks for the table.

Avernum 2 numbers are actually much higher than your table would indicate, because that FAQ had been mirrored on my webpage in a more accessable format. According to Geocities, there have been 9191 hits on the main walkthrough page. The number of hits on the intro page is about 1/3 lower (either due to people going directly to ch4.html bypassing the intro, or due to some other weirdness), but even that number would be about 6,000, if Geocities hadn't lost old data.

So total number of hits for your Avernum 2 FAQ should be closer to 13-16,000.

The Nethergate page has 1380 hits for main walkthrough and 1284 for the intro, so total numbers for Nethergate would be about 3350, which is still far less than any other game.
