Oh wow... I wonder what happens if you agument a pile of herbs and make potions with them.... Maybe it does the same thing? Someone should test this.

I have the folders for Valley of Dying Things, Za Khazi Run, and A Small Rebellion in my BOA scenarios folder, but Diplomacy With the Dead is the only one showing up. I thought it might have been one of my other scenarios messing something up, and so I deleted all of those, (since I can always download them again), but I still can't get those to show up. I'm not sure what's wrong, but could I get help?

I'd advise making the stairs a deep blue-green color.

~EDIT~

I did a bit of experimenting, and hex color 00415a (RGB 0,65,90) looks very nice with dark red.

I'm all for the 'encroaching human settlers' and/or 'gold rush' type of scenario.

Like a bunch of miners stumbled upon a secret civilization of ice spirits(NOT undead. I mean "spirit" like nymphs and faeries and stuff), and you have the choice of either helping the ice spirits drive the humans out of their home(or just kill them) and seal the cave back up, or helping the miners by destroying the ice spirits' magical "cold source" so that the ice will thaw, killing the ice spirits and making the gold/silver/iron/whatever underneath readily accessible.

^There's so many places you could go with that. I can think of at least four possible endings off the top of my head, several nifty cold-based pieces of equipment, and five different dispositions that the ice spirits in general could have.

(Note that I've never played BoE, so I have no idea if this has been done already)

I'm sure that a lot of us have one party that we've used the most and spent the longest time with, and I'm pretty sure that by now some of us have decided on personalities, or at least 'courses of behavior' that each of our PCs have.

Do your characters have set personalities? Even vaguely defined ones? How do they like to handle a scenario?

Example(my party):

1. Male Nephil fighter -- "Do not leave the dungeon until you're sure that EVERYTHING is dead, and you've searched EVERY wall for a secret treasure room(get Mycroft to use Far Sight for this. It saves time.)"
2. Male Slith fighter -- "Do not leave town until you have searched all the houses, taking anything of value that isn't NYed(and a few things that are), get side-quests, slaughter and loot town immediately after getting rewards from side-quests"
3. Female human preistess -- "Get in, kill the monster, take monster's stuff, go back to town to collect reward, then get out as soon as physically possible"
4. Male Nephil mage -- "explore map thoroughly for special encounters and secret passageways"

Traits that apply to the party as a whole -- Loyal to no-one but themselves and each other; like treasure; like finding hidden passageways using Far Sight; hate laser puzzles; dislike the Empire but not to the point of fanaticism; like stat-raising armor and weapons; like nigh-obsessively collecting food and potion ingredients, most of which they never intend to use(but you can never have too much graymold, right?); dislike having to pay for things; dislike useful NYed items that are directly in the line of sight of a friendly, non-moving NPC; dislike fish; hate moster generators

Check the automap. The way out is in the square-ish room near the SW corner. And the 'shrooms aren't 'poppy shrooms'. They're called "Morog's Shrooms" in the Special Items list. Poppy shrooms are green and make you fall asleep. And Morog is a girl, FYI
