I couldn't find out how to combine with my second to get my result, though I didn't look that hard.

Does ripping ants apart count as hurting small animals? I really had no compassion for bugs. A little more now if they don't bite/get into my food, but not much.

Whether or not humans are good or evil depends on the ruleset. Was Indiana Jones evil for killing Nazi's? The Nazi's would say yes.

But I do think that most humans tend to do what is good in their sight. I doubt terrorist think they are evil. They are fighting for their own just cause. There are always exceptions to the rule, i.e. Dintiradan.

I'd erase the memory of every terrorist so they'd forget what they were fighting against and how to make the bombs/fly the airplanes/use the weapons that they've been hurting people with.

Function: noun
Terrorist: a person who uses the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion.

Note 'terrorist', not 'rebel'. While some terrorists can be rebels, not all rebels are terrorists.

Because the conotation of the Bush administration being the stupid ones, as opposed to the troops, is not clear. The troops are the ones that are actually "stuck in Iraq".

Don't know what you have against money. I found pleanty of foreign currency. Here are some others I dug up for you. I could probably be convinced to make you a custom one if these are deemed unworthy as well.

Alas, my camera is still broken. But I have a picture of me wearing what I put on for Halloween.

I picked a different top, but the skirt is what makes the outfit.

Could you be more specific about what you're having trouble with?

- The graphics sheet itself.
- How to number the graphics for the type of graphic it is.
- Where to put the number once you have it.
- Other.

What exactly is happening?

XxX, I strongly suggest that you try to work with Blades of Avernum for a while. It's a good way to get an idea of how much work the design process is on even a small scale. That makes it less of a shock once you realize how much more work it takes to make a game from scratch.

It'll also help you refine your story-telling skills.

Seconded. Really, this is exactly what I thought when reading the last posts of the previous thread. Then I saw that Ephesos already said it, but I want to emphasise that it's a really good idea. Start small, get some practice, gain some experience, train your abilities... just like an adventurer would... only as a designer.

Wait a minute. I'm allowed to do that? :eek:

I thought the moderators shushed the rest of us. :P

Comment on flow: I got a little lost when it jumped to Ephesos. I thought to myself, "What am I doing at RW? I never go to RW. I don't remember going with to RW," and I looked back to find I didn't.

There'd be no trouble if you add 'Back in General...' to the beginning of the sentence.

Looks like I've become more neutral over time, but I'm still a Human Barbarian.

True Neutral Human Barbarian

Alignment:
True Neutral characters are very rare. They believe that balance is the most important thing, and will not side with any other force. They will do whatever is necessary to preserve that balance, even if it means switching allegiances suddenly.

Race:
Humans are the 'average' race. They have the shortest life spans, and because of this, they tend to avoid the racial prejudices that other races are known for. They are also very curious and tend to live 'for the moment'.

Primary Class:
Barbarians live outside the 'civilized' They have tribal goverments, and are often nomads. What they may lack in refinement is balanced by there strength of individual character and ability to survive.

Um, Jewels? Even though FBM is now on Palladium, my description is still on it.
Me knows, me knows. Spent the morning updating the graphics and downloading SmartFTP 2.0, then there's laundry and a 'parent participation' field trip, dishes, grocery shopping, trip to the library, play some BoA, watch some TV... What was I working on? I've gotta finish the file before I upload it. But thanks for letting me know anyway in case it was a mistake.

Edit: There, that should do it. Please no more anti-elements until all others are taken. There's not much more room to put them and figuring out their absolute position takes a lot of time. At least more time then just changing the graphics that are already there. You may need to refresh to view.

Me thinks I'll add a convenient link in this post.

Got through the list and there are 25 elements to update two of which were duplicates. I'll probably just make them anti-specified-element unless someone else has a better idea.

Question: Are not Kingy and GoldenKing one and the same?
