My dad is buying a new computer tommorow, so I could really use some suggestions. Requirments are:
-2000 dollars and under
-Processor, Graphics and RAM are priorities
-A windows computer
-Does not need to be Vista ready
-A good security program thats not Norton Anti-Virus, as Norton takes a lot of processor power.

Thank you in advance.

Why Nintendo, why? Why did you delay the GC version of the new Zelda game again? Again! The 3rd time you've done so. The other two times you used the excuse that it wasn't ready yet. Not true this time, as the port to the Wii comes first! The port dammit! I hate you nintendo, may all your controller cords tangle and all yor precious wii version zeldas blow to bits!

Both one strong leader and a multi personed council have their flaws, as has been noted. So, why not combine the two? The leader is able to make decisons on how to run the government and execute policies. If the council strongly siagreed with an action, they could halt it if the opposers won 70% of the councils votes. The council could make new laws with a simple majority. The leader could refuse to sign off on it, and then the council would need a 70% majority. What do you think?

Its just occurred to me that balance based on the G1 model is much simpler, as the amount for skills doesn't change, so advantages are permenant.

Recently, there has been a reel of threads on balence in this forum, all concluding and talking about different things. Is it just me, or is Geneforge a lot more problematic in this respect than Avernum? And do any of you think that balence is possible, considering that there is set classes?

Guardians need help in Geneforge Series

I think the Gaurdians difficulties boil down to this.

-The other charactors can do everything he does the same or better(Missle Shaper, Melee Agent)

-No form of crowd control optimized for him. He can use crystals, but so can shapers, and they are just mini spells anyways(Agent) He can use creations, but the the shaper does it better.

The only situation in which the gaurdian rules the roost is the boss battle in which you can't escape, as this makes the agent's low health hazardous and its hit and run tactics useless, and the shaper's pets start dropping like flies. This situation doesn't occur much.

Thats my point exactly. Why bother being a gaurdian if other classes can do the same things better? The gaurdian needs help.

Seriously, the Guardians need some buffing for G4. In G3, melee was shafted, along with parry, so the hardcore, torment playing people used missiles. Now, as detailed in the deadeye shaper thread, even the shaper is better ultimately in the end at missles than the Gaurdian. Gaurdians don't have any strategys for torment that others can't do better. The creatures that the gaurdian can shape are weak and die easily, using magic is just stupid, melee is a puny 1-4 damage counter, missle is done better by the other classes, parry not longer saves you. Where does this leave the guardian?

Warrior
Member # 5550

First off, I think that the series needs a shakeup in general. Its getting a little stale. But, having seen Jeff's post, stating all the new things he has planned, my fear has been disproven. Some specific changes.

A) Make Drakons worth the investment.

Drakons have always been the weakest of the 4th tier creations. The have a very modest multipronged range attack, and a melee attack that is bested by the other 4th tier creations. The Ur-Drakon is even more worthless, but so is the Rodihizion. The only the Eyebeast is worth it. This brings me to

B) Make it so that second versions of creations arn't just higher level for more essence, ie Battle Betas, Rodizions. I mean, cmon, you can do better than that Jeff.

C) Fix Terror Vlish. They got completely ruined in G3, with their attack . poisoning things, rather than terrorfying things.

D) Give the Fire creation set and the Battle creations some bonuses. In G1, you could argue that magic creations were the best, with Artila corroding, Vlish slowing, and Glaahks stunning. In G2, magical creations dominance was undeniable. In G3, it got a little better, with the addition of resistences, and Glannks becoming too expensive and weak, but Magic still was the most powerful.

E) Fix the Glaahk. Just because it was too powerful before doesn't mean it should be doomed to expensive worthlessness. Drayks were nerfed too, and they were still useful. It can be done.

Finally,

F) Throw Gaurdians a bone. They have been consistently the hardest, with G2 providing a brief jockying for the spotlight against the Agent. The Gaurdian has the hardest time with locks and mechanics due to the weakness of their unlock, they have the same amount of essence as the Agents, which is almost rather small if one wishes to make creations, and they have a hard time dealing with crowds. G1 was fine, with the Gaurdians being harder but managable. G2 provided a viable means of crowd control with its overpowered parry, finally putting the Gaurdian on equal footing. In G3, parry was heavily nerfed. IMO, it could be slightly more powerful, but it would have been fine if, and only if, melee wasn't completely gutted. The base damage for G2 was 1-8. In G3 it was 1-4. This forces Gaurdians on higher difficulties to autimatically go missile weapons, which is unfair. Agents are able to have numerous different things they can do in a given situation, and Shapers have as many options as they do creations. Only Gaurdians are forced into one stratagey. This must change.

I think we all remember the supposed villian of them all, the leader of the Sholhia. He must of been one of the most ethical people on the planet before he took canisters, because, even when he used the Geneforge, he retained humanity. Thats something your personal character couldn't manage. And Gottesch was a bastard even with just canisters.
