Shaping Spawners in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

Spawners also need an essence pool, which takes a while to grow. And possibly a power spiral. And shaping platforms. It's really not something that would be of any use to an adventurer.

+ creation stat items in Geneforge Series

Throughout the series there are a ton of items with effects like "+1 to dexterity of creations" and so on with other stats and resistances. When is this applied? Is it when the creation is first Shaped, when the item is equipped, or something completely different?

1. Miranda

2. Ghaldring, no question. He's a manipulative ruthless bastard, and deserves to rule the drakons.

3. Trakovites. The drakons have become worse than the Shapers, and the Shapers are no good either. It may just be that I never really see shaping causing prosperity.

4. Mass Energize, it is a beautiful spell for a lifecrafter. Massively increases your damage output while giving healing over time.

5. At low levels, Cryoas and Vlish. Drayk and Glaahk in mid levels, and Drayks and Wingbolts for high levels. Wingbolts are great tanks against kyshaaks and other wingbolts (and other sources of magic damage) due to their absurd magic resistance, and they do around 200 magic damage per hit.

6. Nine. You don't have nearly as much freedom of choice as in GF 1 or 2, which was a bit disappointing.

Playing GF2 as an Agent is something of an exercise in frustration. Sure, at high levels you get cheese like Strong Daze which I've never seen resisted, and Terror which paralyzes any enemy with fear. At low levels, you're really dependent on Speed. Most tough enemies you have to defeat by hitting them with a firebolt and running 4 AP away (out of reach of ranged attacks).

Um, context? Which game are you talking about?

If it's GF 2, I think it's used in the belt the servile in Shath's Waste can make. Not certain.

North- Crate Crate Barrel.

What does that mean?

Where are the goblins the witch wants you to kill to get her skulls back? She said east, but the only goblin settlement I found was Galag-Trav. I looked all around Galag-Trav and didn't find them.

Why does the Blade of Vengeance do extra damage to goblins but not formorians?

Yeah... this is why vampires in BoA are so overpowered.

Vampire casts Arcane Summon. Vampire is summoned. Vampire is summoned. Vampire is summoned. Vampire casts Arcane Summon...

That was the best part of high-level BoA, though. Especially when you're the one doing the summoning. :D

Really anticipated ideas for A5?? in Avernum 4
Shock Trooper
Member # 3513
Profile Homepage #73
What I want most is a reactive plot, like in Geneforge. If I decide to wipe out a few towns, the ending should probably reflect this. Hell, even the old reputation system would work well, and you could only get certain quests/plotlines if you are good or evil enough.

In addition, I'd also like the alchemy system returned and the potions available to expand so that more can be done with alchemy than just vanilla heal/cure/buff stuff.

Originally written by Leftover Sauerkraut:

It means that if you take 100 damage, wearing those gaunlets would let you take 96. But the % is not cummulative. You have to take each piece of armour separately . For example you are wearing 5 peices of armour that each reduce damage by 20%. A monster hits you for 100 damage (without armour) The first piece takes away 20 damage.
100*0.8=80
The next takes 20 percent of that. 80*0.8=64

64*0.8=51.2
51.2*0.8=40.96
40.96*0.8= 32.768

The armour only took away 67.232 damage not 100.

What order are the damage reductions applied in? Largest to smallest, smallest to largest, random, or...?

Finding secret rooms in the Avernum series was not that difficult. All you had to do was check if the inside area of a building and the outside area matched up, and wall-bump around the perimeter of the unexplained extra room.

Avernum 5 Ideas in Avernum 4
Shock Trooper
Member # 3513
Profile Homepage #4
Nurrr, most of what I said I wanted for Avernum 4.
a) Greater variety in the magic system, possibly a new type of magic besides mage/priest
b) reinstating the alchemy system, expanding the usefulness of alchemy
c) being able to make light so that playing the damn game doesn't make me go blind from the dungeon sections.
d) greater variety in what non-casters can do.
e) perhaps something like feats, so that characters can get new traits/abilities every few levels.
f) the old targeting system.
g) a plot that is not totally linear.

Zero Intelligence Creations in Geneforge Series
Shock Trooper
Member # 3513

AI-controlled creations would have a much harder time against mobs or powerful monsters. In GF2 something I found vital was spreading around a single powerful creature, such as a Rothgroth. Each creature moves 3 AP away from the enemy, and generally stuns it with a hit. The creature never really gets a chance to fight back. With AI control, you would not be able to use any strategy aside from "Kill everything in sight".
