Hintbook: how is it? in The Avernum Trilogy

I never saw a point to the hintbooks. It was more fun to figure it out on my own, and if I really needed it there were the walkthroughs. There are also the boards if something is a complete fog.

New Abortion Laws in General
Shaper
Member # 5437

Abortion is usually allowed (here at least) up to the end of the first trimester. After that point the brain, nervous system, and other signs of consciousness start to develop. The baby will jump if it hears loud noises and become restful to peaceful music. I feel at this point it is “alive.” To abort at birth is disgusting.

I think people should have rights to their own bodies. I could not abort a baby, I would be endlessly sad. It would be different if there were a medical reason that would cause the child to have a life of suffering or me to die. I would never tell anyone else it is right or wrong to make this decision for themselves.

which is better? Geneforge 1 or Geneforge 2? in Geneforge Series

I played G2 before G1. In G2 canisters were fairly rare and a treasure once found. Going on a canister spree in G1 was fun after that. I liked using the Geneforge, but the power is a little wasted on insanity. G1's story was better, but G2 had better spells, creations, more areas and features. Overall I guess G1, it made you more of “The Shaper.”

I see, than you will not be visiting the Barrier Tower. You wont be able to return to Avernum via the Tower of Magi until you register.

inside you find a magician circling around the exact same guy, only he is imprisoned in a rune circle. one of them is a demon who pretends being his own guard mage and both will tell you the other one is the demon... then you can decide whom to help. or do nothing.
i think you have to help the right one to get what you came for, a book on teleportation, which you need to destroy the empire mass teleporter (one of the 3 game-winning quests).
was there something more? dont remember.
If I am not mistaken you don't have to help anyone, and shouldn't. Just ask the mage about the book, so most likely you have to know about the book in the first place. Once you get to the tower save your game before doing anything, and read the walkthrough if you need to.

1.You can find a hexagonal bar in the “Watery Ruins”, south west of the “Ruined River Fort”. Battle the hydras, it will be in the north west corner.

2. Each shop has a different buying selling ratio. Compare prices at different shops before selling potentially valuable items.

Wolfowitz to rule the World Bank? in General
Shaper
Member # 5437
Profile #9
I don't defend anything Bush did or is doing now, nor do I support or respect those who put him in office. I can only attempt to justify their actions. My comment was not to say that all should be forgiven or forgotten. The comment was that anger such as that of VCH only causes more war.

The only place we ever belonged was Afghanistan, and Bush failed in his attempts there. The only reason he went to Iraq was for Bush senior. It was also to cover up his failure, and show the voters he was their protector and a strong leader. It was a personal war, and one we had no right to. There were no “weapons of mass destruction.”

True Saddam needed to be taken out of power, but that should have been the end of our presence. Americans are known for imposing their will on other nations, such as Bush going aggenst the UN and starting a war.

Many people died, that includes all those American solders. Many of them were very young and didn't want to be there. Between human nature of retaining bad feelings and brainwashing rampant in America it is no wander the world continues this path.

Lets replace **** with <S.A.P.> it's the same deal at least to the poor countries.
Wishing harm on innocent people doesn't solve anything. I and many others tried to get Bush out of office. We are not bad people because we have a bad leader. The people who did vote for Bush were scared ignorant people.

Bush works hard to appeal to the uneducated, the impoverished, and the hard core religious types. After 911 American's decisions were based on fear and on threats of wars. To condemn a nation for blindly trying to defend themselves is in it self incredibly ignorant.

I like having a big pack of pets following me around. I get to be the pack leader, and With such a large group attackers don't even get a single hit in.

I don't like the idea of prostitution, but I don't see a problem with pornography. I don't watch it or take part in it, but I have no problem in other people doing so.

I have only spiritual prospectives to add to this, and since they can not be physically be proven accurate, or scientifically proven to be incorrect I suppose I have nothing productive to add to this.

I really enjoy the snow, but that is probably because I don't live in it. As a rule people in California aren't allowed to complain about cold. Sometimes it's a little cold, but not compared to every other place north of here. Snow is great though. A warm fireplace at night makes it even nicer.

I would generally assume that statistically females would be more likely to have issues with sex than males. Being that sex is more emotional for women that men, and women tend to be on the receiving end of that sort of trauma. That's not to say that men don't suffer the same abuse as women do, it's is either much less often or not spoken of. "They" could have been in place of "he."

A guy I knew a long time a go would tell me that in Nevada prostitution is legal, but not on the streets. He would refer to them as "classier prostitutes." They would be in a hotel of sorts. You rent a room and a partner for the evening. He said it could get very expensive. The upside to this is that the girls are checked by a doctor, protection is mandatory, and there are guards within earshot. Note that this is secondhand information and I cannot confirm anything.

I agree with Fringy in that the odds of a female president are slim to none. Especially considering that Americans are becoming republican, and in complete ignorance inflicting Bush on the world . Trying to get a female democrat into office will only lead to a male republican. Though they may go the other way and vote for her simply for being female and not for being qualified.

Most typing programs with a spell check are accompanied by a dictionary and thesaurus.

To add on to what was stated above there are many who hate sex simply because they are to uptight to relax. I'll spare you the explanation of that statement. Not getting any and trauma would certainly be at the top of some lists. Also heavy religious groups often discourage theses things. Aside from marriage in which it is conditioned.

For the record I'm not included in any of these groups
