Character Building (Duo, normal difficulty) in Avernum 4
Warrior
Member # 2978

I've just had my first proper run-in with Avernum 4 the last couple of days. I beleive I've done most of the stuff there is do in the demo section, and ordered the full game. Now while I'm waiting I'm wondering how to best utilize my unspent skill points.

These are my characters so far:

(The fighter now has 20 sp, not 18, as he just drank a knowledge brew.)

Obviously I regret getting tool use on my fighter but I'm not gonna start over just because of that.

So where oh where do I invest?
The obvious choices seem to be +1 Meele for fighter which would enable Quick Strike. And +1 Mage Spells for the mage to access Magery. Then what?

What did the buddhist say to the hotdog vendor?

- Make me one with everything.

Edit:

What's brown and sound like a bell?

- DUNG!

I like how around the edges of the screenshots, from the interview someone linked to, it says "GENEFOREG". Or not. Someone should slip Jeff a note about it.

Oh, I like the new design though.

A Hypothetical in General
Warrior
Member # 2978

"This is not an ethical dilemma. Under almost any reasonable ethical system, to kill this person would be unacceptable. The fact remains, however, that they are a stranger to you, and someone you know will die if you don't kill them."

On the other hand, you can go on a government funded trip to another country to kill people there, who may or may not be a threat to you, and come home a hero. (And/or in a body bag.)

Binge Drinking in General
Warrior
Member # 2978
Profile #12
If I go out to a club I'll usually have 5-7 drinks over 3-4 hours and stick to water after that.
A binge for me is 5-6 in an hour or 9+ over an evening. (My "record" is 12 beers + 5 drinks I think, but that very long 'night'.)

It's pretty damn cold and lonely down here in Cocytus...
It's not where I expected to be, coming from a conservative christian family in a quite secular(-ized?, sp?) country.

Quite an interesting test though, if I answer no to "Can you see yourself engaging in treason against your country" I either end up in Dis or in Level 2 depending on if I believe in God or not (which usually varies with mood/weather/time-of-day/what-I-had-for-lunch etc).

Upp, trälar uti alla stater, som hungern bojor lagt uppå
Det dånar uti rättens krater,
snart skall uppbrottets timma slå.
Störtas skall det gamla snart i gruset.
Slav, stig upp för att slå dig fri!
Från mörkret stiga vi mot ljuset,
från intet allt vi vilja bli.

Upp till kamp emot kvalen.
Siste striden det är,
ty Internationalen
till alla lycka bär.

Ah, Teenage Poetry; It's the only thing more useless than angst, and the perfect way to waste good bandwidth. Here's your sideorder of sappy lovesong:

She sits there laughing at the rain
And I wonder if she knows
That the way it comes down reminds me of me
And the way I fall
Fall for you
I could fall into
Those eyes of blue
And a voice like summer skies that smile
Down on me
Invitingly

Frost bites the land, the sky is bleak
And I wonder when she speaks
How moch she knows of how I feel
How much she really means to me
I guess we
Will never know
Even though
I would love to tell her, I'm afraid
She'll say no
Oh, God No!


It wouldn't be legal to post this on your website though. Copyright and such.

"I don't mind someone telling me tht I made a mistake in an RP post and then trying to show me a better way of doing it. But for god's sakes, why do it in a negative way? I have to wonder if you are like that in real life too. That makes for a bad reputation at this site, any other site, and in real life. And I prefer to have a good reputation wherever I go."

One'll get a bad rep here for being a pain in many different ways, but not for having a caustic sense of humor. I can't believe you've stayed around for so long withuot noticing.

"In saying that, you will probably laugh and say that I have given myself a bad reputation already as a complainer and one who gets angry too quickly at such trivial things. And I most certainly have. But then again, I think I have the right to speak up when I feel the need to. And now seems like a good time, as I really do NOT want to leave this site."

You're kicking up a fuss for nothing and the starved ironistas here will pounce on it, but it's just their special way of saying they love you.

"I will go back and change the way I do things in an RP once more, but I WILL NOT put up with constant nagging anymore. It stops now."

You need to stop making everything personal. A criticism of your RPing skills is not an attack on your value as a human being.

"The type of person I am referring to is someone like Alorael or Premonition or Drakefyre, who put other people's feelings ahead of their own for the sake of being kind and courteous and respectful."

Wow, with three people like that in only 4000 members this place is definitely a lot friendlier than RL, innit?

>Sir David. 120 post is hardly a reaon to recognize me is it? I've always been Emsomething, most recently Emmerdale, and my sig, though prone to change might stand out here simply by being a sig and not an essay or a portal-site IMAGE(Who cares anymore Not me (2)_files/tongue.gif)

"If you find that to be constructive and not at all insulting"

Seriously, I do think you're asking a bit much. You're most likely to find advice that is both constructive and insulting. I think both Sir David's and Arancayatar's criticism is partly constructive even if their tone is negative.
I do think you need to learn to deal with that.

Though I dont think anyone else is bothered as much by your "lack of adaptation to the 'ideal' RP Style" as you yourself are.
If people criticise your RPing, you simply do your best to adapt, and if that isnt good enough for them, that's their problem, no need to blow it out of proportion. (It's Role *Playing* ffs)

(My first Post in this thread was not a call for MSW to start a flame war, If you come up against feedback you dont agree with you can 'fire' back an argument.)

I find it slightly surprising that so many people match best with someone I've never even heard of before (Kucinich).

I'm using Windows XP.

Microsoft needs to recognize that user-friendly does not equal beginner-friendly. If windows degenerates further the next version will have video-clips showing you how to push the start button (featuring Jar-Jar Binks as the Paperclip).
