The original question was: where am I being stupid, at the gallery or at the garage? So if Ephesos doesn't like galleries, he should vote gallery. It does sort of make sense.

I like this poll, although I find it impossible to answer. It would depend on whether I myself liked the vase in question. It I found it aesthetically pleasing, then I would say you're stupid at the garage. And conversely if I thought it had about as much appeal as Tracy's unmade bed, then I'd vote you stupid at the gallery.

Anyone else read the instructions? I got a feeling someone was feeling a wee bit whimsical when he wrote them.

quote:

The Nethergate: Resurrection screen. This is where you will do most of your game playing. How thrilling!

quote:

The Terrain Area: You’ll probably spend most of your time looking here. You can see your adventurers. Handsome little people, aren’t they?

quote:

Delete Character – Bad character! Go away!

Late night was it Jeff? Oh well, better than copying and pasting from the last Geneforge I suppose...

Why's it called 16:10 and not 8:5, anyway?
I guess because a lot more people have 19" monitors than 9" ones.

Though that line of thought raises the question of why the tv ratio is called 4:3 rather than say, 12:9.

Edit: Double D'oh.

I got

"Vaultbrood The Subjugator" and
"The Pieces of Presidents"

One of these was a band name, the other was an evil name. I can't quite remember which was which.

Honestly, I go wow with a lot with books and then a couple of weeks later I am able to make a more balanced judgement.

I suppose the last book that made a really lasting impression on me was The First World War, by John Keegan.

The poll also allows you to tick every box. Somehow, I managed to resist the temptation. Others may not be so restrained.

Exile runs fine under Windows XP. Under Vista, you must switch the compatability mode to Windows XP.

The Awakened founder would be Ellrah, and the Drakon Taker leader would be Easss, I believe.

I voted Awakened (GF2 incarnation), because I liked that ending, although I suppose the Trakovite ending to GF4 was similar in some ways.

I can imagine lots of little imps, living in the fibre optic cabling, who provide simultaneous translation for internet postings. That would be very Terry Pratchett.

I don't think you can edit the monsters. The obvious thing would be to use the editor to leave town and come back when your mental resistance is higher.

A judgement = a decision

Infernal Flamming Muffin = Iffy

Hence:

"Infernal Flamming Muffin making a judgement" = "An Iffy decision"

See, it's a pun, based on your PDN.

Ember flowers were an alchemical ingredient that used to be in the Exile trilogy (in Avernum the herbs were generally given boring names like "spiritual herbs").

If he'd let you judge, it would have been an Iffy decision.
