If Micael manages to patch up this scenario which is far from impossible, I'll give it at least a 2 on Spidweb, so it won't be deleted.

..... You're probably right. I suffer from chronic boredom. If something makes me less bored, then I like it. This made me less bored for a few hours. So I like it.

Quiet, you!! *hits Sathoj with a giant hammer* I think that this scenario is quite good. It just needs a few bugs fixed is all. I give the beta version a 3.0(I would have said 4.0, but I have to take a point off for the bugs.)

Another bug I found: When you exit from the side of one of the Walls, you get stuck in the wall and have to reload. You should really take those exits out.

Second thing: The Winding Wall was annoying as heck. Replace some of those Burning Bones with Icewind Skeletons or something. And take out the message about not bothering to go farther. It's annoying when you're trying to get at a Burning Bones that just moved close to the wall.

Oh, and I don't like Laser/Mirror puzzles. Just so you know.

Ok, I got the updated version.

Problems with Small Cave

I STILL can't get through those secret doors. I think maybe you should just not have them locked.

Problems with the tower:

The spider room exit problem still stands

In the room with the "Room of gathered items", there is a wall on top of a cloak of some sort, making it impossible to pick up.

When I try to speak to the sorceror, I got an error message saying that I tried to start a dialogue, but there wasn't a dialogue script loaded

The message is still cut off when I cast Unlock Doors

Vahnatai Lord is still not Hostile.

And I need to take a nap...........

I found the secret doors. They're magically locked, and for whatever reason, Unlock Doors wasn't working on them, so I could never open them.

Yeah, That happened to me, too.

First Tower problems:

There is no way to get out of the Control Room because of the ledges at points A and B

The door at point C cannot be picked.

When you cast Unlock Doors, you can't see the entire message in the text box at the bottom.

You exit the Tower when you step into the back of the room with the giant spell-casting spiders(point D), causing one to have to enter the tower again from the back in order to get back in.

The Vahnatai Lord at point E isn't hostile.

The scorcerer in the holding cell at point F won't talk to you.

And I'm not sure if it's intentional, but there's also a door at point G that just seems really out of place.

Well, the first thing I ran into was that you can't leave the Wall from the south. You can only go backward. And with my compulsive mapping problem, it really upset me because I didn't get to map everything before I came to the Wall. ;_; I'm not sure if this is intentional, but it's anoying.

Second thing: As soon as I entered The First Tower..., the little text box thing that tells you what is going on says in red, and I quote:

ERROR: Failed to load Boom .

And it says that 46 times in a row. I counted.

I wanted to see if you really wanted to test, so I sent you lot an absolutely **** scenario.

The real scenario should be on it's way to you as I write, so please feel free to play it. The real scenario is called UNDEAD VALLEY.

Sorry to all of those that I tricked - I Had to get rid of the ones who weren't willing to perservere...

- Archimage Micael

And thanks to all of you lot who were defending me, but I was TRYING to make it so bad that it put people off. That way I could select a few people who persevered for testing the real thing... THANKS ANYWAY GUYS!!!

And ***Pig Catapult***, it was worse than 'BAD'. Personally, I rate it as 'MODERATELY TERRIBLE'. And no, I will not release it, not unless there's actually somebody who wants me to...

It's a scenario. I suffer from chronic boredom. I'll test anything. Can I beta test 'UNDEAD VALLEY'? Or have you already emailed it to me? *checks email* If you did, it's not here yet.

And where would Fluffy be?
Maybe in a factory where they melt ice-puddings, draketeeth, herbs and other stuff into medicine. There would be ice-pudding hunters who store them somewhere, before they bring them to the factory. Fluffy could be everywhere.
Because puddings don't talk and look all the same you would bring several times the wrong pet to the princess. You had to steal or to buy them (to a higher price than the factory would pay). And you had to hurry up, because once Fluffy arrives in the factory, it will be manufactured soon, snif.

You're brilliant! *glomps and huggles* Absolutely BRILLIANT!!

Edit: *gets idea* And the guy that hires you to kill the demons could be behind the manufacturing of the Ice Pudding Potions and stuff!

Edit 2: But what would the potions do? *ponders* Temporary fire immunity, perhaps? Or a handful of Skill Points? Or maybe:

Ice Pudding Potion

-1 Skill Point
+2 to Resistance

And

Draketooth Potion

-1 Magical Efficiency
+2 Magery

And

Ice Pudding Elixir

-2 Skill Points
+5 Resistance

And

Draketooth Elixir

-2 Magical Efficiency
+5 Magery

And then they sell the normal Potions and Elixirs made from herbs, too.

OOOH! Here's a question: Is anyone ever going to make any of these Scenarios? I have absolutely zero talent with the editor, but I've got all sorts of ideas for scenarios. It's really frustrating.

Another scenario idea

-- somewhere in Avernum, a demonic princess(visualization: think of a Hordling, only it's a bright blue instead of a bright red, and it has a lot more HP, and can cast Smite, Healing, and Devine Host, and is immune to ice attacks) has lost her precious pet Ice Pudding, and, because she has her parents(Who are very powerful Demons) around her little finger, hordes of demonic creatures are now rampaging through the land, destroying everything in their path in search of it. Of course, Avernum has no idea why the demons are attacking, just that they are attacking. You have been hired to kill the demon princess and her parents, as well as wipe out as many demons as you can along the way. But when you get to the castle, the demon king explians to you that the princess's pet Ice Pudding (who I shall call "Fluffy" from now on, because I don't want to type "Ice Pudding" over and over again) has gone missing, and that the attacks will stop only if Fluffy is returned, and lets you go talk to the princess so that she can give you all the details, and a Special Item so that you can safely handle Fluffy. As a reward for finding Fluffy, the princess will give you some powerful magical artifact or something like that, and stop the invasion. But if you rescue Fluffy, then when you return to whatever Fort or city or whatever, the person who gave you the quest to get rid of the demons turns out to be racist against them or someting, and refuses to reward you, even though the attacks stopped.(so, the choice is: a really hard battle with a large cash reward(killing the demons), or a seires of smaller battles and a powerful piece of magical equipment(finding Fluffy)
