Hijack. Is nethergate singleton friendly? Ive only just got into playing as a singleton, so should i wait for Windows Nethergate or get stuck into Avernum 2 again?

Well ive never generally cared too much about graphics. I grew up with low spec computers, which when i think about it was probably why i stumbled across Spiderweb games. I do prefer the original Averum-Nethergate style graphics, but that never stopped me playing through a few geneforge demos and enjoying them.

However when Jeff finally got rid of that graphic type in A4 it seemed like the end of an era. I did grow up with them after all...

Anyone agree?

A4 Graphics in Avernum 4

Ok. I am just moaning, and i know its to late to do anything about it. But dont we prefer the old Avernum style graphics? The Geneforge-based stuff just looks like imitation 3D, and while i cant narrow down what made the classic Avernum stylings so good, they did seem to have alot more charm. Anyway, here goes...

EDIT: I can't spell.

A3 Skills in The Avernum Trilogy
Shock Trooper
Member # 3605

Just decided to play through A3 again, and have a sneaking suspicion im missing something. Im pretty sure i rember there being stat dependant skills available, maybe sharpshooter and lethal blow were a couple, which you could obtain through sufficient stat levels in one or more skills. I have a sneaking suspicion im thinking of A2....

If i could have a list of the skills, with the stats requiered (or a certifiate to prove my creeping senility) id be much obliged.

Do you play music when playing Avernum? in The Avernum Trilogy
Shock Trooper
Member # 3605
Profile Homepage #52
I like my downbeat Rock and Hardcore music. Million Dead's melancholy and Reuben's energy (both local bands!) can create an atmosphere which reflects some of the darkness and exitement (read violence) in Avernum.

Then again, music does detract somewhat from my gaming experience, me not being a multitasker.

Edit: Add Biffy Clyro to the above two. Just cuz i like em.
And Mogwai, for that touch of the magical.

For me, the challenge of wading through endless 'party' references in dialog is challenge enough.

These invisible adventurers are taking most of the credit for my singletons work, and i just cant stand it.

Roofs? in The Exile Trilogy

Does the moss ever stop glowing? If it doesnt a roof would be usefull to keep the light out.

Also, i may be a lower class of person, but i might be tempted to throw stuff into your house if it didn't have a roof, just for laughs.

Its hooligans like me that keep the Avernum roofing industry in buisness.

Seeing as the search function simply refuses to go back more than a few months worth of posts, and my 'Check One in Two Archive' pages has brough up nothing, can anyone remind me where all the locations of mithril ore and what all the various items that can be forged are?

Weapons and Warfare in Avernum. in Blades of Avernum
Shock Trooper

I would think that most defensive technology would be much the same. A wall is easy to build, and even if a mage or priest can go right through it, a defender is catering mostly for the grunt. Remember that most of the people attacking you are just sword swingers, not arch-mages. And if we take the effect of say, a bolt of fire, we can see that it would take more than the average mages power to knock down a proper wall.

Added to this is the probability that you have your own mages. Any spell they can do, you can undo. A few spells here and there when your building the thing might solve your mage related problems. And why rely on the rare and expensive mages, when the grunts can just be trained to build a catapult that does the same, or a better (in most cases), job.

I could do with a human characterwith a darker feel to it. Preferably male. Same kinda style as the one in the PC set you made (good job by the way). Somthing along the lines of the mages in the default Avernum set, but with a more melee look to em.

I dont really see the point in this topic. The merits of the ideal, i dont think is doubted by any. I do believe all people should be born equal, and raised equalas long as those that suceed arn't totaly cut off from the fruits of what they have achieved. So, frankly, i have no problem with the removal of inheretence (not that it could happen anytime soon). A socialist state, where everyone is equal, and are offered the same chances, but wealth is not taken from those who earn it honestly would be my ideal. But I also have a problem with the a state being forced to drag people who do not wish to take part (economically and socially). But i havent thought about this practicaly, so ill shut up now.
By the way,i know total equality is impossible. Some are more intellegent, stronger or talented then others. All men are not born equal, but should be treated as such until proven otherwise.

Im just using this as a way to think aloud. These are not rock solid beliefs. Shoot down my ideas at will. I hope this explains for the rambaling and contradictions.

Social pressures have more effect than financial. Society makes the difference between a drug addict and a tycoon, not money. Grow up in a suportive and self-improving society, you have a better chance to do well than by just being rich.

Than again, i might be spouting balls again.
