Wham Bam Shizam was a character in a radio drama play by Tom Lopez. His company's name is ZBS, dunno if anyone out there has heard of it, but he produces some fun stuff. He was a teenager who was rude, and drove a 50's car and dressed like a guy from the 50's. I don't identify with him at all, either, I just thought it souned cool, so what the heck. What I want to know is... where did Rosy get her name..?

IDEA: The Pearl Contest in Blades of Exile

I think this is an awesome idea. I think it might spark some new interests for BoE fans and designers. Is there going to be an actual contest? Or is it just in the idea stages now?

Um... out of curiosity, (I am not trying to pick a fight or anything) how come Kelandon's case got so much attention, and Cavanoskus's case is just kind of overlooked? I am just curious, and I am not trying to start trouble.

Okay. Number one, this is the wrong forum to be posting such requests. It needs to go to the Avernum Trilogy boards.

Number two, if you need help, can you be a tad more specific about what part of Avernum 1 you are having trouble with? This way, people can help you out more effectively.

I have to say, I think that Dead Man, by Jim Jarmuch (don't know if the spelling on that is right..) is my favorite movie.

Custom Graphics Inserting in Blades of Exile
Shock Trooper

Okay. You make your scenario, correct? Let's say you name it "The Quest" but the filename is "quest". You make a graphics sheet with the same name as the scenario. The first slot, in the upper left hand corner is slot "0". It progresses as you move to the left of your sheet. Read the docs carefully, and it will help you out. If you need help answering something specifically, then please say so.

Learning To Play Bass in General
Shock Trooper
Member # 4942
Profile #2
Playing bass is not that hard. Playing bass well, however, is. The first thing you need to know is your arpeggios. All bass playing is either arpeggios, or a select riff from the song played over and over. Doing a google search on "minor arpeggios" or "diminished arpeggios" whatever, could help you out. But if you want to learn most of the stuff online, then you need to learn tab. Which is not hard. You can find tab teaching lessons online, but if you need help, I can aid you. If you want.

Root of all evil in General

Desire, I think, is the root of all evil. This is parallel to Garrison's statement.

If there was no desire, no wants, what kind of place would the world be?

What is the root of all evil? Everything seems really slow around here, and I am tired, and just thought I would throw this out there. It will probably only get like 10 replies, but what the heck, right?

Is it just me? in The Avernum Trilogy
Shock Trooper

We were talking in class the other day about the story of Orpheus. My teacher gave a broad explanation of Hades, and the Greeks' idea of death. If memory serves, he mentioned that the cave leading to the underworld was called "Avernus." I think this has some connection to Avernum. "Brilliant, Eintein!" I know that is what most of you are thinking. I just wondered if everyone else knew this, or if everyone didn't.

Corruption in Indonesia in General
Shock Trooper

What do you all think of this? In Aceh province (I think it is a province...)there are not only civillians dressing up as soldiers and stealing aide, but the Indonesian millitary is stealing aide as well. I heard on Democracy Now! that they are also launching raids on cities that were not hit by the tsunami, which is also a problem, obviously. Not only after the tsunami, but before it as well. Aceh is supposed to be a hotspot for seperatists. What do you all think of this?

It probably had something to do with the changing of the Spidweb look.

I don't think Spidweb wants things like this, or even hosts them. From what I hear, and from what I experience, Jeff has abandoned BoE. I know Gizmo has a pretty good compilation of walkthroughs, so you could ask her.

Hey, newb. Please do not make posts if they do not have a point. People tend to get annoyed. Please lock this, someone.

I think Garth Nix had a few good books out. Sabriel is pretty good. The next two in that series are not that great. The first was good the way it was. Shade's Children was also an interesting apocalypse book.

New Breed... in Blades of Exile
Shock Trooper

I think that Johnney Favourite was an interesting scenario that sort of ties in with the new type of scenario. There was absolutely no battle, so it's purpose was to tell a story. It seems sort of parallel to Roots, and NTH in a way. Those scenarios seemed like their purpose was to tell a story instead of making an adventure. I don't know if this was the intent of the designers or not, but it seemed like that to me. So maybe the new type of scenario is more of a storytelling device than anything else. Combat seemed to help the telling of the story. I don't know where I am going with all of this. Just trying to keep the topic alive. There has not been a worthy topic since Shyguy's "Thuroughly Disgusted".

What I think would be interesting is to balance hack n' slash with the tactical combat. I mean, it is kind of fun, sometimes, to fight masses of montsters and get treasure, but it seems more fufilling to actually WORK at killing someone.

Or, you could just use the editor :P

It seems there is a new breed of scenarios emgerging. Maybe it is just the aging of BoE, I don't know.
It seems that more thoughtful combat is being implemented. That is a main factor. More fusing of puzzle and battle. You can't just swing at the "boss" hoping to hit and kill him, which is the norm in most scenarios.

Roots and NTH are the two main scenarios that come to mind when I think of this new breed.

If this is the way BoE scenarios are going to be created, what does everyone think about this?

1984 is my new favourite.

But hey, that ain't exactly light reading.

What genre are you specifically looking for?
