7 Creation Party in Geneforge Series

I prefer two (sometimes three) stronger creations rather than seven weaker ones.

After playing Avernum I started using my own magic more than wands, and I like being able to do things like unlock doors without living tools. Seven creations might look impressive, but they tend to be weak, and consume a ton of essence.

It looked as though my new pants might have been hastily sewn, but the salesman assured me that every stitch was exactly as it seamed.

Well, first of all I have done this before so it is possible.
2nd go to gf3itemschars.txt
And replace the old shaper thing with this
begindefinecreature 0;
cr_name = "Shaper";
cr_graphic_template = 85; //110
cr_max_health = 20;
cr_max_energy = 20;
cr_max_essence = 10;
cr_regen_rate = 2;
cr_energy_regen_rate = 2;
cr_walk_speed = 24; //base_speed;
cr_base_level = 1;
cr_sound_when_slain = 127;
Now to the right of the 85 is 110 which is the shaper graphics so when you don't wont drakon graphics you can just swap 85 with 110.
3rd It will change the size to make it right.
4th Good luck.
5th My first post!!!! And I already need to edit.
6th (what I missed)Adding a sword or a baton will change the graphics from a drakon. (I forgot what it changed to.)

This makes all NPC Shapers into Drakons, and oddly my PC Shaper is a Drakon in the icon in the upper left corner, but the walking character itself is an Eyebeast.

Ok, I suppose you could read the story and see no erotic undertone, but ask everyone here and see how many did see one. If you see it as just a man being compassionate to a lone wolf, that's great too, I guess you look at things in less of a sexual light than I do. If you do see how that can be construed as an erotic connection with an animal I don't see what your point is.

I never said it was wrong or perverted, but simply that the man with beast fantasy is there.

My honest answer, enlightenment, but I'm not even going to try to explain what that is :P

As for all my worldly desires coming to be. I would like all my friends, loved ones, and pets to be with me. All my favorite foods and drinks manifesting whenever I think of them, an endless supply of Skribbane (and "cookies"), every book ever written/ever will be written, a complete knowledge of all the world's wisdom, a computer of course, and a few things that would violate the code of conduct to mention. :P

I believe Alo gets his Skribbane from Exile rather than Avernum, as he prefers it in potion form.

BoA/AT, but there are some aspects of A4 that are okay; I would just prefer not to see Shapers, Agents, and Guardians in an Avernum game.

I fail to see an erotic undertone in a soldier or toddler petting a cat. You did not fail to recognize the erotic undertone of the furry fiction.
Could be due to our different cultural background not to say attitude towards erotica.

YAP (do you prefer to be called something else?), Aran summed it up very nicely. The pictures you keep posting are not sexual towards the animals.

Note that I really don't care how anyone chooses their romances, but I find it interesting you see no difference between the story Fox wrote and the pictures you posted.

However, if there is not, then I would ask Dolphin to PM me, if not Christianity, what she does believe so we have a solid base to debate about. I would then continue my separate arguments against Ash and Dolphin and leave this thread to GremlinJoe and TM.

I'll send you a PM if you would like to continue, but in the end I'll argue for both sides. Though you've seen me primary argue on the side of God's existence, I see God more as the life force than as a being with a voice and face.

As an aside, believe me I'd love to ask people how they can say that God is "completely right in all that he does". While God does nothing as he watches his devout followers getting murdered, raped, and beaten every day, and dismisses their suffering by telling them that heaven waits for them after the torture ends. A discussion with people who practice completely blind faith won't go anywhere, so there's no point aside from the satisfaction of the rant.

Imban, what happened to your post? :P

I don't think he's a troll, as his statements sound too sentimental. He should note, however, that the prominent SW members are the same people as a year ago, give or take a couple, so he likely already knows our various opinions.

Edit: I'm sorry but a dog sniffing the president's package hardly compares to a romance novel.

Well, we seem to be discussing it in here now, despite ADoS's wishes. :D
In that case :P

Originally written by I Would Have Been Your Daddy:

Suppose a person decides to overthrow the government. They are successful and enjoy a happy lifetime of luxury and opressing people as a dictator.
Presumably after this person dies they will go to hell, and be punished for their misdeeds.
This raises the question: Why would God wait until someone dies to punish them? He could just as easily do it while they're alive. Yet he doesn't. There are numerous records, in history and today, of criminals that were never caught and never punished; dictators that opressed happily for the rest of their lives.

Now suppose, in the future, someone discovers how to live forever. Perhaps cryogenics work; perhaps it's a miracle drug; it doesn't matter. Suppose it becomes widespread. If one
of the people that lives forever becomes a criminal and is never caught, when is God going to punish him?

The thing is I don't look at hell the way the bible does, so I can't justify its doctrine to you. I don't believe you to go hell for doing bad deeds, but rather to burn off hate. I don't want to start preaching Buddhism, so I'm going to leave that alone.

Are you implying the man that lives forever would never suffer in his eternal life? This seem farfetched to me, as everyday we experience something in life that is less than heavenly.

quote:
Aside from that argument, the whole position feels rather phony to me. God says "Do what you want, but if you do something bad, I'll punish you." What is the general purpose of punishment? An incentive not to do something. The police fine criminals as an incentive to not commit the crime again. Punishing us isn't going to do any good if we're stuck in hell and can't reform or fix our mistakes.
Again, all I can offer to questions like this are personal beliefs, as you are asking me to justify theoretical outcomes. The way I look at this "bad deed" and "sins" are measured in severity based on the whether or not the person knows that was wrong, and for that matter what their intent was while doing it.

I don't think people are bound to the laws of other people faiths. Christians made a regular practice of sacrificing animals to their god, and animals are considered lower than humans so this is not seen as murder. To a Hindu, Buddhist, or Taoist all creatures (animals and humans alike) have a soul and will enlighten over time, so that would be considered murder. To a vegan or vegetarian that would be considered murder. Who is right? Did the Christians murder the animal or just make a common offering?

quote:
Okay. The rock was a metaphoric example. Let's switch the "falling flat on his face" with "dying". Let's switch the rock with "cancer". The man contracts cancer and dies. I trust that you would prefer not to die? We cannot learn from our mistakes (if indeed there's anything to be learned by catching a disease) if we're dead.

If God does not protect us from trivial mistakes, he should at least protect us from deadly ones. I'm not talking suicide, which clearly falls under "free will." I'm not talking being shot, which falls under others's free will. Cancer is nobody's fault.

The answer this would be different if based on biblical beliefs or those based on reincarnation. As I see it though not all suffering is a punishment.

Fox's initial post does not convince me that the "relationship" with animals is a distorted sexuality and the post itself contracdicts itself about Fox's nonrelation to humans - Fox is looking for a human response here.
I take it you missed the dog story Fox posted some time ago.

The same thing happened to me after switching to Tiger (while using version 1.02b5). Downloading the same version I had before and throwing away the old one fixed it.

Actually, I had to do the same thing with A3.

Yeah, it's the same person.

I agree, how you choose your relationships doesn't effect others (especially here), and what they think of it won't effect your choices.
