Wishing Well in Avernum 4

And I guess the magic of the wishing well explains how the dropped coins instantly add themselves to the adventurer's inventory, too.

Favorite Class in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

Well now, shaping is definitely the most powerful skill:

Singleton vs 7 Hostile Wingbolts = Dead Singleton (Mass Madness may possibly save you)PC with 2 Drayks vs 7 Hostile Wingbolts = Wingbolt Soup (Mass Energize will make it very easy)Now, given that all classes are now able to shape all creations (thanks to the shapemaster boots), the Shaper's/Lifecrafter's edge has been eroded. But the advantage of numbers still makes the game significantly easier.

Why aren't the blue spore and green spore batons on this list? I know I missed one (no inventory slots at the time) and I can't remember where it was...

Hmph.

There are inaccessible rooms in, for example, Erika's Tower and Blackcrag Fortress.

Don't know if you've done it yet; version on your site still uses LFs instead of CRs.

Sarasaphilia, did you upload your txt files using ftp? FTP has this annoying habit of altering the line breaks in text files, so the file you uploaded may not be the same as the one you originally created. When I looked at the ones on your site, they appeared to have unix line breaks, which are not recognised by GF4. For the versions on my site I converted the files to macintosh line breaks. This seems to work, even on my windows machines.

Well done. And thank you for figuring out the prime factorisation of Hawk King's age, too; I was struggling with that.

G2 Editor? in Geneforge Series
Agent

When you download the editor, you need to right click (Windows) or option click (Macintosh) and "save as". Do NOT open the file directly in your browser and then save it, this causes the line breaks to get screwed up.

3D might be pretty to look at, but I hope the gameplay won't discriminate against those of us with zero spatial awareness.

So your theory is not that a guilty conscience is “directly proportional to the perceived likelihood of getting caught” anymore? Now it’s based on worry about forgiveness and what will happen if you do the same stupid thing again?

It's the same theory. Thuryl's original paragraph went on to mention "100% sure they would never suffer any adverse consequences". It is obvious that if you cannot be sure that you were forgiven, then you cannot be sure there will be no adverse consequences.

In my high school English final exam, the question paper included an extract from a work titled Great Expections by Charles Dickens.

Of all the places for a typo to creep in :rolleyes:

Edit: clarification

Has anyone read anything by Charles Stross?

I've had quite a SF fest recently. Yesterday I realised I had finished all my SF books, so I went and bought some more. Luckily I found a half-price sale at Borders :D

Ones I recently read were:
  • Ender's Shadow, Orson Scott Card;
  • Fallen Dragon, Peter F Hamilton; and
  • Pushing Ice, Alastair Reynolds.
