Yeah, but that's nowadays. We've had an odd 50 years to reflect on whether Hitler was good or bad. Back when WW2 was around, they didn't have that luxury. We can't really expect them to be as educated about all the facts than we are now.

- Archmagus Micael

Either I totally didn't get this post, or he is agreeing that modern-day Jews are worse than Hitler.

PS I wouldn't delete this forum. You can't shut down every nazi forum on the Internet and it's good to know what some Spidweb members think.

EDIT: I agree that hosting a Nazi forum is bad. I just like this opportunity to find out who the Nazis on these boards are. (I am disturbed, but not really surprized to find out that there are at least a couple.)

I'm NOT a Nazi. I was just saying that now we are more educated about what actually happened. While the war was going on, people weren't quite sure what was going on. The post makes far more sense in Topic. I'm just saying that nowadays, some of the pointless things Jews do are fresher in our minds, and that's what we notice. I'm in no way excusing Hitler or what he did. What he did was terrible, but what some Jews are doing now is wrong. They're both wrong, maybe Hitler a bit more, but we've all had 50 years to decide that. What's happening now we can't talk about as unbiasedly.

- Archmagus Micael

Besides, as far as I can see, this is the only thread about Nazis on the TCoA.

Yes. Just tell the Battlemaster that the Spire Queen wanted him dead (if you don't know that talk to her first). He will then give you the quest to assainate her first.

Don't forget to leech the arena first. ;)

Exile 3: Windows taskbar won't go away in Tech Support

Do you have Windows 2000 or XP? The Exile games (and Nethergate too for some inexplicable reason) do not cover the taskbar in 2000 or XP like they did in 95, 98, and ME. In order to play with the taskbar covered up, you will have to manually change it each time you play the game. Right-click on your taskbar and select Properties. Then, deslect the check box that says "Keep taskbar on top of other Windows". After you're done playing, you will probably want to go back in and check the box again.
It won't be if it's the same computer (game still registered) and it covered it up before. An update in OS would unregister the game (normally).

What Dikiyoba said's more likely, but that's just my advice.

You know, I could very, very, very easily go on a rant here, but I won't.

Just kidding.

Undead Valley is painfully unbalanced from the start. Fireblast still does just as much damage to undead, and usually more once you've got a half-competent mage in your party. Besides, once you get jaded on the hordes upon hordes of undead, Fireblast is just so much more satisfying.

I could also go on a rant about it - and I made it!

Fireblast is the one I use the most against most of the Undead, except for the Ruby Skeletons ofcourse, where Priest Spells are really the only spells that can "zap" them.

In A4 Jeff was focusing on rewriting the engine, so plot and atmosphere got the back seat. In A5 he'll be able to spend a lot more time on the story, atmosphere, and other such elements, instead of tinkering with the engine.
Hmm. That's what we all hope at least. At least he said there'd be no more old villains coming back again, so he'll have to put something fresh into it again. Maybe it'll be as good as A2, but I still expect him to tinker with the engine.

Um,

I think I kinda pressed the wrong button when registering, and now it's insisting that the Administrator needs to activate my account, due to the COPPA.

Please activate it, you'll know which one it is.
Also, unless there's a dire reason for having the COPPA on, please turn it off, as it annoys to no end.

In BOA one arcane summon (at high level) could beat the toughest fights!!! priests little shades are great support but they usialy cant make it in huge fights.

Yes. There was a button (can't remember which) which made me practically unkillable (which is kinda odd when I'm in hte middle of Empire Forts).

But haven't been able to duplicate that. Don't really want to. If I do, I can just set down the hardness.

Even so, the doomguard was rather painful.

Not much more than any of the other satellites did at the time. 2003 was a great year for roleplays. TCoA was not an RP board, but like any good SW forum then it had a section dedicated to RPing.

Like most satellites, it also died. Unlike most, it outlasted the summer - I think it died late in 2003 or early in 2004 even.

Now that I think of it, I did hear something obout TGM's boards when I was lurking (not that I lurked before joining).

Hmm. Well, I suppose I'm interested, if it'll have a good RP section which I can actually pay attention to (a smaller community helps ;) ).

What sort of help do you need?

P.S. For anyone interested in satellites, or non-satellites, you can also check out my forums (link in siggy). Watch out though, it'll be really CRAZY when I get some life into it (after the holidays I can force people to post, and we;ll do it just so we can ignore certain people at school :P ).

Any suggestion?

Yes.

Put one or two on spellcasting (that's more cost-efective for a guardian) to boost up oyur magic. Put about 2 on luck, then distribute the rest on combat skills, especially parry, as it's uber-powerful in GF2 (which I assume you're playing 'cause of the blue colour).

Ofcourse, this is just my opinion, and as I find the Guardian nearly as useless as the Shaper, it won't be the 100% best. But I've won with guardians on torment, so I must have done something right.

Also: Make a creation pack. I note you don't have one yet. A half-dozen cheap Cryoas to distract your enemy will work wonders, and the essence will be going to waste otherwise.

Yeah. It's the right trailer. Just had to test it (never actually needed to use it), and am now uploading it. Go Broadband.

Okay. I'll check out Schro's FAQ. But I swear I've been all over Elderan's USELESS tower.

Avernum 2 -:- Ivory Key in The Avernum Trilogy
Agent
Member # 4506

Guys,

Been playing Avernum 2 recently, and just recovered one of the Crystal Souls from the Pyrog's old cave, and decided that I want to "sort out" the portal issue.

I've taken Mahdavi's advice and blasted that Empire Tower to pieces ages ago. Now I think that I've got to go to the big shiny records place which the Empire has on one of our Northern Isles.

Now I just want to know if there's actually an Ivory Key to go into that Ivory lock. I could just jump down onto the ice, but it would be kinda painful, and trap me inside. Ofcourse, if I'm "barking up the wrong tree", please let me know.

Is that one openable? Unless I'm thinking of a different one (been playing the AT + A4 lately), I don't think that one's openable. Is it the one right in the corner, with just a little bit of town space left to keep you guessing?
