Love Life Poll in General

I had a bit of trouble with the "serious" relationship thing...
I'm not sure how that's defined, if it by thinkin' about the whole marriage thing, well, I basically said I don't think I'd ever get married, that is until I saw my wife at a cafe on Maui...
Love at first sight, spirit partner... you bet...
Before meeting her, the whole "love at first sight" thing I totally blew off, I figured that it wasn't worth it and my life would be better off solo. But now, couldn't imagine being without her.
We actually made lists of what we wanted in our ideal partner, I had mine finished two months prior to the meeting but my list was stolen the day before we met and I said that the spell was cast to my friend. She was just finishing up her list when I walked into the cafe and she told her friend that I was the guy...
Yes, the ultimate love story... I'm living it...

Grew up in Cali, had my fair share of Rockin' and Rollin'...
Now I'm on South Beach, Florida, where the weather is amazing, but every once in awhile hurricanes just glance us... Have some cool pics of the last one that blazed thru...

Just download a few demos to try them out...
The Avernum series is my fav... Geneforge is pretty sweet as well...
I'm right now doin the Nethergate thang...

Once you're in though, be forwarned by Jeff's own admittance, you get sucked in, time keeps on slippin'...
Low tech, High story-line... Old school RPGin...

I'm a huge fan of the genre and the folks at Spiderweb put out some of the best stuff out there! have fun!!! and welcome onboard...

What have you been reading lately? in General

Jeez,
I jumped to the last page of this topic and really would have no clue what the question is...
Books...
aaaahhhh...
Favorite all-time Fantasy... George RR Martin, amazing stuff!!!
RA Salvator's stuff is top notch as well...
right now I'm reading David Gemmell's books which are a good find for me cause he has quite a few out and I like his style...

And as for the school topic...
American school system is by far the worst in any "developed" country... It was designed by a German guy "back in the day" to create perfect soldiers and factory workers. Take away individuality, keep one person in control with all of the answers and study from a text book. Keeps creativity out of the brain... Breaks down the human... Add florescent lighting which damages the eyes and causes the brain to slow down and whammo, numb the children and our future...
And as far as the curriculum, please, everything is so outdated it is a joke... And all college is really good for is to get you connected... Once you get out in the "real world" nobody really gives a hoot about what you've done in school. "Show me what you can do, don't tell me what you've done"...

I'm not finished yet, but in the last area, so Randomizer was correct, you just have to get permission to leave before toasting him...
If there are any problems later on I'll be sure to update this posting...

For Mac, Realmz used to be pretty darn good...
I heard they were going to carbonize it, anyone have any word on that?

Thank you Fractal for the understanding pump, it is my first run...

Sorry for the triple post, I did it for dramatic effect but understand that it can be super annoying...

or if the spell points get a little low...
or there is a magic item I just can't seem to find...
or I need some gold for that extra spell... or just edit the spells...
or if my fighter gets poisoned, diseased, or feels drowsy...

Basically, I don't play the game, I just edit...

Okay, to be totally honest, a bit...
But it was when I started, bumped up strength of one of the fighters to 8 to open up doors...
So yes, I did, but not outrageously...
Don't hate me cause I'm a cheater
:rolleyes:

Cool, as a Celt, I buffed up, speed up and blessed up my fighters then went into combat mode and attacked Bel. He died, and I got those goodies. So it is possible to kill him.

I don't know if he's dead, dead... but I got a dagger of the sun, a blessed long sword and a robe of the archdruid from his corpse. Does he come back?

Was wonderin' if anybody has gotten behind Bel in the Halls of the Dead into his chambers where the temp quickly kills you. If so, how? and is there anything back there worth the trip? Also, if you kill the God of the Dead, does that haunt you later in the game?
