Alas, that wouldn't be allowed. The rules are that you can only use ten towns, town meaning the editor definition of town.

1/10 discussion... in Blades of Avernum
Infiltrator
Member # 5132

As we didn't get to it in the chat, I guess we should just discuss here. Plus, more voices can be heard.

Here's what I propose:

Looking back at an older thread, I guess the rules will stay the same.

1. No more than 1 outdoor section, no more than 10 zones. Less is acceptable.
2. The scenario can't have been entered in a previous contest.
3. The deadline would be the around the end of March.
4. Open to both BoE and BoA.
5. I doubt I'll see any BoE entries, but if there are entries from both, we should discuss judging requirements. There won't be too high demand for judges in a short contest.
6. Judging would be done by a straight ranking average. Scoring is done in secret.
7. Scenarios entered in this contest are still elgible for the 9th Contest when it comes.
8. Everything should be official once the 8th Contest is over.

These are proposed rules. If there's anything you'd like to add/delete/change/whatever, or have questions, now is the time for discussion.

Mostly 'details haven't been decided yet.' As Eph said, the chat went nowhere...

2007- What movies are you looking forward to? in General

Diki, I think Robinator was talking about the new movie, not the new book.

That being said, I liked the previous movies. And I can't wait to read the final book (and the title is released, if you don't already know.)

Utility list on Archive in Blades of Exile

I know it's not a huge deal, but when I looked at the utility list, I noticed my Portal utility isn't on. I know it isn't a huge deal, and it's on the P-R page, but for sake of completion...

Thanks.

(It's a designer utility, though I'd be surprised if any designer used it at all.)

As 2007 approaches us, what movies are you looking forward to in the upcoming year?

For me, I'm most looking forward to the new Harry Potter movie. I'm also looking forward to Bridge to Terabithia although I haven't read the book) and The Golden Compass (which I've started reading). I'm not sure particularly why I'm looking forward to the other two. I might also see Pirates 3, but I'm not particularly excited about it after 2.

I hope to see it in the 1/10 contest. May the old days of BoE be remembered always!

(Also, you're forgetting Drizzt. He was pretty important too.)

Also, I think your outdoor section should be called "The Lyceum." Although it still exists today, back then it was the staple board of BoE. Right now, the only forums there that have any real activity are the CSR forums.

Still play it....ocassionally. After all these engrossing stories and technology in BoX scenarios, it feels actually pleasant to come back to a simple plot and some general hack and slash for a while.

Interesting. I couldn't stand the BBC Narnia, but I loved the 2005 version. Different tastes, I s'pose.

And I'm not some geek who cares only about special effects. King Kong had good effects, and I couldn't stand that. I didn't care for POTC 2 much either.

Okay, I guess this is the problem. I don't have AIM, and have no idea how to use a webclient. Heck, I'm not sure what that even is.

(The average score is correct, it's just the hi/lo that was wrong.)

I really should be here, considering that I probably will do the 1/10 contest. I don't have access to AIM at all.

Congrats to all finalists, esp. TM, Smoo, and Lazarus!

E:R for the win! (True, it be nice if I did, but I doubt that happening, and E:R is an excellent scenario.)

If I'm running this, which I most likely will, I'll start it after Contest 8 and make the deadline the end of March unless there are objections.

I'd say #2. 3 sounds a little sloppy to me. Of course, I'd like 90%, but that's just because of the selfish reason that I'd have a better chance of advancing. :P

Do what you want.

Question: is the discussion over who wins preliminary, or who wins final?

Diki - Close enough. Scenarios with Nephil and Nephar (cat people) in the title.

Nioca - Scenarios with punctuation in the title.

The Roots of Tomorrow's Future come as the Times Rob Corporeus, the Defender of Areni, from the Northern Kingdom.

Alright, go into the library, kill Eltus, and search the desk. If you can figure out the puzzle, it should be pretty easy.

Grab the emeralds, and cast your shielding special spell (special items, can't remember the exact name offhand), THEN step on the runes. Hurry!
