I cheat all the time. Mostly because I'm not a great player but sometimes because I want to explore the game to it's limits.

I'm dead?

*scratches head*

I don't remember reading that.

Or maybe it's that I just thought I'd be counted among the ones brought back in the raising spree?

I object...

Edit: My memory sucks. I didn't say a thing.

Alec is right because Alec is always right.

I reject the challenge, though, not because it would be pointless to prove once again that Alec is right, but because if I had the time and gumption to actually conduct such a study, I'd rather use it to work on a scenario or something similar that would result in an end product that has a slight chance of maybe being worthy of the work that went into it a month from now.

Instead I propose a new challenge. Write a ten page essay on the one thing that you most want to accomplish in your lifetime. Include short-term and long-term goals and a strategy or plan of action for carrying it through. Then follow your plan and make it happen. And if you have time and ambition enough, feel free to turn it into a scenario.

It's your own fault, you know. What with all the chapters you piled on us in weeks prior it's no wonder we're complaining of withdrawal symptoms. You have us hopelessly addicted. ;)

Now's about the time you start charging for the next dose and watch that piggy bank grow.

Awww. And here I was looking forward to reading the end of the story all week. You really have been distracted, haven't you? I suppose I can forgive you since I enjoy reading your stories, but I'm sure I needn't reiterate my stance on suspense to you.

You know, Constance could really wallop those talking rats for you, as could the rest of the Abbey dwellers in Redwall if I had gotten farther then the prologue with it. Just sayin', if you decide to fix up the summoning machine or something fancy like that, you have options.

Exodus update in Blades of Avernum

If a designer is willing to make their scenairo better, then threads like these are entirely appropriate. A designer can only fix problems they know about.

On the otherhand, if the designer says they don't want to fix it, then it becomes complaining. I think most designers want to fix mistakes if they can be. And many readmes, if not the scenario itself, have instructions for players to e-mail the author if they find a bug.

In the case of this scenario, since it's so big, it's easy to miss things in beta testing. This is kinda like an open beta.

Nothing wrong with a little abstract thinking. It's good to think outside the box once in a while.

It's wierd, but I don't see anything against the CoC here except maybe a hidden death threat in your post.

Girls: would you prefer to lay eggs? in General
Agent
Member # 3364

I'd rather not lay eggs. Chicken or baby sized. Technology has come far enough that women can take medication to stop menstration all together if they don't want to get pregnant, and pregnancy itself stops menstration usually until weening time.

There is one major point that no one has yet to address. Who's gonna sit on the fertile egg to wait until it hatches?

Pregnancy now is not extremely cumbersome but having to sit in one spot for even one day would be torture to me. Sure, the responsibility can be shared and even outsourced to technology. But then what happens if the eggsitter takes a too-long bathroom break or that technology breaks down in the middle of the night? I see marital discorse and lawsuits galore in the making.

Abortion (and adoption, I think) would be a whole lot easier though. Just leave your fertile egg unattended to die of cold or smash it and dispose of it in your own home. With no abortion clinics to pickit, pro-lifers would have to go the route of informational booths on good egg care and where you can leave unwanted fertile eggs no questions asked.

Then there's the whole 'how do you tell if an egg is fertilized' question. But I'll leave that alone for now.

I always wait for the redirect and usually end up editing (multiple times) shortly after. I only have another window or tab open to a topic if I'm trying to quote more then one person in the same post. The dictonary is usually open though.

While I'm thinking about it, did anybody else have a problem with Firefox's last update? My computer will no longer allow Firefox to access the web. I've been without tabbing since.

Since it seems you won't be reading my reply to your reply, I'll summerize. (sorry fluffy kittens)

Kel, you and TM are the best BoA scenario makers and scripters we have. When you're the best, I expect more from you. Not more scenarios, but more determination, drive, passion, and maturity. Don't quit because people thought Exodus was too hard, learn from it.

And that's my very last, final, word on the subject.

In other news I started playing Bahssikava (I didn't even have to look the spelling up.) Two thirds of the way through (I think) and I'm still having fun, which you know, is very good in my book.

We could always say that you were Pangea, when Pangea was around. But you have secluded youself to Madagascar as the continents broke apart and new governments formed.

But it's kind of like saying you're the world back when the world was Pangea, and Imban is the world. Then again, you are Imban so I guess it all works out.

I nominate Arctic to be the Bermuda Triangle. What goes in never comes out.

Congratulations TM!! You really deserve it. I'd smother you with love, too, but I know how much you hate it. So I won't... today.

Congratulations to all the other designers. Keep up the good work.

idk Kel. For all my grumblings, I kinda liked your scenario. Then again I had the fortune of having that engine bug help me out in combat. I appreciate the hard work you put into it. Looking on the bright side, it'll always be better then Redwall. :P

Don't forget, Diki, that the Periodic Table has had countless updates. I just covered up all my old mistakes.

Antarctica is acceptable for Nalyd as I gave the oceans to Salmon.

I will point out again that those bolded are only my suggested countries. My word is not law so go ahead and argue if you want something different. I threw in a few countries when the ones suggested didn't seem to fit.

I see you as Madagascar, Diki. Exotic and unique. Full of life, some of which is found no where else.
