Here I am. Warning: I am (a)old, (b)hideous, and (c)there is no c.

Nice to see everyone, and no one looks anything like what I thought.

I just checked, since I couldn't remember what had to be done at that point. Walk up to the boat that can't be selected, and the dialog for returning to the mainland will then pop up.

Oh, honestly. I'd never actually eat a kitten. Carnivore meat generally doesn't taste very good.

All kidding aside, I am fond of cats. I have not been the pet of a cat in a while though. I hope to remedy this soon.

Finalizing Scenario Ideas. in Blades of Avernum
Infiltrator
Member # 3220
Profile #16
There's been rather a lot going on that has interfered with my working on my scenario and will probably do so for a bit longer, though I am working around it. This, however, is my intent statement for my scenario:

The party is a low-level group who travel to a school for training. They sneak out of the school to go fight a group of bad guys, who turn out to be renegade graduates of the school who decided to use what they learned to wreak a little havoc. The party must defeat them, and then return to their school to be punished for sneaking off.

I am generally available from 9 pm or later (CST) by AIM for chat or private talk, and any time by PM or my listed e-mail.

Their point is to identify which of your friends or relatives are gullible idiots. Strangely once they have established this status, they seem to want to keep reinforcing it. They also get quite offended when you send them links to websites debunking the idiocy in which they believe.

Erm, maybe I'm out of place for offering advice here, but I'd not do that. The original idea was great fun on it's own, and to factor in all kinds of double plots and twists meaks it a little... I dunno, but I get the feeling I wouldn't.

Of course, it wouldn't involve any more work, so go for it if that's what you want!

Hey, no problem. Anyone who wants to advise certainly may. I need all the help I can get, considering I can't seem to make a dungeon with proper back walls yet. Story I can do. I think it may be the other bits that will get me.

Just in time! I've downloaded it and will play it as soon as I get the chance. Anything to keep from going back (starting over, more like) to that other scenario that's my bane at the moment.

My first scenario is going to be fairly short: Party goes to training school. Mysterious stranger tells them of some bad guys to fight, but they must sneak out of school to do it. Party fights bad guys, gets some neat stuff, but gets in trouble when they come back to school.

I'd like to participate in the chat and I'm on CST. About the only time this thrice-blasted connection doesn't drop is this time of day, though. I'll see what I can do.

This sounds like it could be very interesting. I've finished all but one of the BoA scenarios I downloaded, and as it looks like I'm going to have some time (alas), I could get started on the scenario I've been half-heartedly planning. But I have no idea where to start. Most everyone's scenarios astound me, and I wonder if I can produce something even playable, never mind good.

What does everyone name their party members? Just the preset names? Or something more creative?

Dikiyoba.

I change the names. Sometimes I call my characters after people I know, or characters in my novel. Just for fun, I gave Roman names to the party I made to play Lord Putidus.

I generally have a human cleric, human or slith sorcerer, slith or human berzerker, and another fighter or a rogue of whatever race I feel like using. I tend to neglect archery most of the time.

I'm currently playing Diplomacy with the Dead again, with a party of two humans, a slith, and a nephil, all using the most feminine-looking portraits, and with female names. It doesn't matter, of course, but I felt like doing it just this once.

What happens to people who stop posting for an extended period of time?

Dikiyoba thinks that if UBB bugs decide to delete accounts, they ought to at least delete the accounts of people who aren't around anymore.

I don't know if anything happens, as I hadn't posted for nearly a year (or was it more than a year?) before I came back. I've never really made a big noise here, though, so I don't think anyone would notice if my account had been eaten.

I would notice when I tried to come back, but other than that, no.

I just started playing it recently, after being rather bored with another game. I've played most of the scenarios that I downloaded and am a bit stuck at the beginning of a certain one. (That's why I logged in now. I was looking for a hint.) I'll play good, bad, or indifferent scenarios, and I'm even thinking of designing my own. I have a storyline planned, anyway.

I've been a touch dismayed when scenarios turned out to be much shorter than I thought they would. I like long ones best.

Tolkien, naturally, Garth Nix. I enjoy Eddings' stuff but don't consider it good. Robin McKinley is my absolute favorite author, no question. Fantasy. Took my name on another board from one of her protagonists.

I would merely make personal alterations, going back within my own lifespan. While the idea of screwing with the timeline in a major way is appealing, I don't want to take the chance that I really mess things up.

I just don't want the reponsibility.

That is a puzzling problem, especially as it isn't happening to everyone who has AVG. I run it and it didn't mind my installing Geneforge 3 at all.

Maybe it's trying to preserve your spare time?

Not yet. We've already scandalized most of the family on both sides by declaring that we're not getting married in a church, but beyond that we have no clue what we're doing.

I never really know when I'll post. I've changed a lot of my habits in the past year or so, and obsessive board posting is one of them.

Brings out various conspiracy theories about how the nomination was a smoke screen for other activities of the administration. Not from me, though--I'm still sitting here, thinking, "Huh."

Well, in my experience, being drunk is only fun when people can tell that you're drunk. With me, it's apparently not apparent, as B informed me after a night of experimentation in that area. Neither he nor I are obvious drunks. We become random ramblers, which is very much like our usual condition. The only difference is that we like to stay in one place because that keeps the room from moving strangely.

Party animals, we are.
