I'll just have to write about my amazing Kyshaak mount/pack animals instead of seeing them ingame... Ah well.

Rock on, Your Jeffness. ;)

Less having to dump stuff in some location.
Or less having to sift through your personal inventory.

Also, y'know, realism.

GF5 = WIN.

Do we have any word on pack animals?

Okay, for the record I don't know a thing about script editing, nor do I have the time to try to learn. I merely figured whoever was responsible for said changes would like to know their side effects.

Ending the series with a stylish boom. Props to His Jeffness if he can pull off all of the abovelisted features.

As much as I'd love to start as a Drakon, I don't think it's going to happen... too overpowered from the start. Although, no canisters, presumably. Hm...... Either way, the missing 6th character is probably a reference to the one combo of strength and weakness in magic, melee, and shaping that was left out last time.

I personally beg for pack-Ornks. Realistically, if the Shapers can make modified drayks for boats, they can also make faster Ornks suitable for carrying heavy loads.

I note with glee that you've upgraded the Ur-Drakon to an Unbound One. Yay!

It's been a long time... did the Unbound drakon at the endgame have a single breath attack, or did it do the spray effect that normal drakons have?

Edit1: Erk... and now I've created the Shaper Monarch instead of a cyrodrayk. Yikes.

Edit2: Um... Some of the Ur-Drakons are Unbound Ones now. If there's a way to fix that, I suggest you do. It kinda detracts from the game as a whole.

Also, all the cryodrayks are Shaper Monachs. A wee bit disconcerting.

Unbound spawners? Now *there's* a horrifying idea. As if trying to kill five of them in G4 wasn't hard enough...

Definitely need the full-powered Geneforge.

And for the record, I'd love to play as a Drakon.

Creation Combo! in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

The general consensus appears be to fire and magic, which I also support.

I tended to keep a Wingbolt and some kind of fire creation to keep my poor Lifecrafter alive from long ranges.

I kinda liked my insane, glass-cannon lifecrafter. I had a sweet team of two creations (Beta and Wingbolt) that utterly annhilated anyone I came up against in the latter half of the game. Sometimes I needed tactics, but my 9 in Blessing Magic worked wonders. It was good stuff. ^_^

Canister usage in Geneforge 4: Rebellion
Warrior
Member # 3746

Spoiler!

.....

.....

Okay, you've been warned.

I used as many canisters as I could because I craved powerful creations. This had rather detrimental effects for my Pro-Shaper lifecrafter. Shaper and Drakon alike tried to help my poor sanity with little effect. I didn't appreciate the ending one bit. They spared my life! Oh, joy! Clap hands, dance around exuberantly!

/sarcasm

Anyway, the most of the canisters seemed to be worth using if you didn't mind the going insane part. They tended to give you powers that you wouldn't necessarily be able to get otherwise at that point in time.

The combination I ended up using for the last half of the game (as a Lifecrafter) was Wingbolt/Battle Beta. After I magicked everything to near invincibility, the beta distracted whatever it was I was trying to kill while the Wingbolt took chunks out of it from afar.

I only added a Kyshakk near the end because I was afraid I'd need more range support. In retrospect, I really should have subsituted a Drayk. The irony would have been delicious.

I agree. I generally dislike long series, because quality tends to degrade over time and even if it doesn't, I prefer to read/watch/play something new. Even the best story gets stale if it's milked too much. I'll probably try a demo of Gf4, but it would have to be better than any previous games (a very high bar to cross) for me to register it.
I dunno. I think most companies where the long series got dry and stuff were large ones, y'know? Jeff could pull it off. With a lot of effort.

D'oh. And there it is. Cheers, Alorael. (butchers Tolliver)

I currently have 8 tool use, so I guess it's not 8. Oh well.

I wonder what the "green sphere" on his belt was..

I have done a stupid. Shame on me.

So, couple questions.

I've found the main entrance with the apparently übertraps, and I didn't want to blow my characters to smithereens (I'm rather fond of my party). So the question is, how high must your tool use be to deactivate those traps.

Secondly, Commander Anford (in Fort Draco) said there was an escape tunnel that led to the spot where the guy was hidden. It was supposably free of traps because Tolliver didn't know it existed. So where is this tunnel?

Thanks, folks.

Who knows?

I'd kinda like to see people react to my creations. I mean, okay. So I play a loyalist to the Shapers in GF3. And yet I'm walking around with a Drayk. An illegal Drayk. So... shouldn't they get mad at me for that? Or at least suspicious? Shouldn't ordinary people become nervous when they see my mighty companions? Honestly, I could kick their butts without too much effort. So why no creation effects?

I have a spelling/grammar error to report. When you meet up with Master Hoge for the second time in one of the marshes with roamers, he talks to you. One of the responses to his messege for you apparently makes him join you.

It is phrased: "I will try and meet with the rebels and at least see what they have to say and you shal go with me!."

Not to offend, but you may want to rephrase it slightly. Perhaps making it two sentences, like "I will try and meet with the rebels and at least see what they have to say. But you should come with me." Or something of the like.

Edit: the permanant radient shield and blessing effects are a nice touch, by the way.

Edit two: I came across an odd messege while taking down the spawners in Madness Mire.

zspawner30.txt Error. Bad term in expression in line 52

I have no idea whether that has anything to do with this cheater or not, but it happened while I was destroying spawners.

I'm playing a Shaper. No, I'd say it's probably that I was at too low a level to have the capacity for enough essence. At level 13, I've got 366 essence, so...

At Lair of the Creator: Is the Shaper Shadow supposed to join me after I talk to it a second time, or is it in the script that I suddenly have a spawner in my party? A spawner that's in danger of getting killed by the hostile one right next to it.

Edit: btw, the spawner doesn't seem to do anything, and there's no image in its stats.

Also: At Fort Kentia, you might want to have Captain whathisface join you after you do stuff for him. He seems to have joined me nearly as soon as I got into the fort, which kinda killed my chances of talking to him. I ended up dismissing him and leaving the town, then coming back and talking to him.

Unfortunately, Abbadon, I still don't have enough essence. Perhaps it's that I'm using 1.0 and or that I got my gift as a level 4 character.

(grins) Ah... the joys of having a book of answers...

There are three canisters total.

The first is in Icy End.

The second is in Benerii-Eo Labs.

The third is in The Geneforge.
