Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

That's right, I said CHRISTMAS! Not X-mas, Holiday or whatever bullcrap people are saying. If you don't believe in Jesus then don't cellebrate Christmas. That's the day we Christians cellebrate Jesus' birth.

This ain't really meant for the people here...I'm just venting. I do agree with the thought that the rabbi had with the exception of the lawsuit. Buisnesses should display all holiday's, but people shouldn't be offended to the point of threats! Again, Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

I meant what I said to be thought in relation to the upcoming release of A5! Let's just say that there are two portals carrying people to the caves. The FIVE get sent down one portal and help maintain order, while the other one gets noone and everyone ends up being like bandits (like the Cult of the Sacred Item). It would be like Avernum but in reverse. In Avernum, the good live in cities and towns while in the bandits hide. In the other place the bandits rule and the good are hiding! :cool:

There must've been at least 2 per continent, AT LEAST. With that in mind, could there be other places people were sent? Places inhabited that we have not seen or heard about? :confused:

What do y'all think about this in relation to the upcoming Avernum 5? :cool:

Actually, they would probably only need three, if that was the case. I don't think Valorim would have had a portal yet, since it was only just settled in the time frame of A3, and the teleporting stopped shortly after A1.

However, it's a definite possibility.

Valorim was probably settled near the time the portals were shut down. I do agree with you on the number of portals though! That would make two portals going to other places than the Avernum as we know it.

I believe I am one of the VERY few who use the message icons (albeit I only use the :cool: symbol). Look through the posts, everyone only uses note with the tack in it. Has anyone else noticed this?

I had this thought some time ago, but it wasn't until I went through my notes recently that I now bring it up. Now bear with me.

Aydin's Tower was in the west part of the Northern Islands, Aimee's was in the east. Aimee's tower wasn't a town you could enter, just a special. Aydin's tower was COMPLETELY destroyed when the Empire invaded and Aimee's was demolished to make way for the Hall of Records. Both Aydin and Aimee are present or mentioned in A2 but not after. :cool:

About the new route... is it

3. On the river near Almaria going south?
4. On the river near Silvar and Fort Avernum going east?

"visited in early games but not Avernum 4" rules out 3 and 4, I believe, although I could be wrong about that. My money is on 1, myself, but only because the basis of the would-be Northern Kingdom series was going to be that very location.

Your right Kel, I forgot about that rule when I posted! :o :cool:

I believe the question everyone wants to know is :confused: ...Are Rone, X and I still alive to lend our support to Avernum? :cool:

I'm pretty sure that it's impossible, but if I'm still here I have a few suggestions!
1. Move me back to the Tower of the Magi. (preferably Administrator)
2. Give me a cat pet to replace Cheeseball. (doesn't need to talk)
3. Let me be able to give some sort of magical training in either spells or special traits.
4. Quests. (enough said)

I like how this game sounds already. About the new route... is it
1. In the Northern Waters going north to new caves?
2. On the river near Erika's Tower going west?
3. On the river near Almaria going south?
4. On the river near Silvar and Fort Avernum going east?

Four Vahnatai Tribe War
Empire Civil War
Un-Banished Sliths Discovered
Reinsertion of the Darkside Loyalists
Bandits (again, but way stronger)
Nephilim, Goblins, lizards, and some weak bandits (for the beginning)
Dragon Brood unleashed on the Empire

This is just something that if included with some other sub-plots would add up to what I would say is a good game! :cool:

The name carries infamy here. You may want to reconsider shortening to the same name. (You also may not be able to.)

So that is what the Solberg Incident was! Someone about 3 years ago asked if I was the one involved in the incident. I told him that I had no idea what he was talking about. And that's the first (and last, until now) I heard about that. About the name, maybe just Solberg is not good. I'll have to think on it. :cool:

-EDIT- Who'd have thought that my name changing post would revive a list of pre-#501 members!

That's true, but this is FANTASY Baseball! A season has 30 games and lasts for about 46 days. You play a game about 2 of every 3 days (about there). You play one game a "week". Every day is one "week". I know it's confusing, but it's really simple once you get hang of it! :cool:
