The "east" line is missing a semicolon.

Maybe an SDF could be used to chart whether a belt has moved a player yet, with one for each player (6). Set them to a number after moving a player, and reset them every turn. If you want the belt to stop you can set all the SDFs to the inactive value.

Will monsters also need to walk on the belt?

Right now, the way the script works is if the party commits any crime, they will be killed. If the effect is specific only to the hostility of a character, though, you may want to use the character's hostility as a trigger.

The Continuing Story of Spiderweb Software in General
Agent

1. If circumstances allowed for you to meet a fellow Spiderwebber who would you choose to meet?

Myself.

2. What do you consider as the magnum opus of these boards?

Subversion and diversion.

3. Does the recent increase in spam content irk you?

When I first joined (which seems to have been a really long time ago), everything was cool and clever and I thought the place was great and spam-free. And later I realized that I was the cause of spam and stupidity and that's why I had never noticed it before.

But I don't think you're as bad as I was. That's not a shot at you, just a tip that perceptions change.

4. What is the last Spiderweb game or BoA/BoE scenario you have completed.

Er... G3? A1?

5. Explain why you choose to participate in these boards.

Habit. As in, "$60 habit".

6. Are you a regular poster at a satellite forum of SW? If so post the name(s) of it/them.

No.

7. Of all current members, who do you think deserves to be a moderator. (Answer should not be a current moderator)

Off the top of my head, SoT or Bain? But I think they were already offered the option and refused or something. Or maybe I'm just spreading rumors...

8. For simple consensus: what is your current country/nation/territory of residence? What is your native tongue?

USA, English. But it's only a matter of time before all California's young people will be speaking Spanish. They're taking over, you see.

Well that was out of the blue.

Out of the blue? How do people fabricate this stuff?

Why are such things always out of the blue? Why not red? Or green? Magenta?

The sky is usually blue. Not green. The other colors may depend on your local pollution levels.

Arancaytar has been up 20 hours 24 minutes and 2 seconds.
Oh gah.

I've had 12 hours of actual sleep over the past 3 days, although I've also rested my body without actually sleeping, have had massive amounts of caffeine, and haven't had to do any serious thinking.

You may also find this to be of interest. It lists a number of quests in Avernum 1.

The body is northeast of the Faerie Bazaar near the Jagged Aerie. Check out the skeletal bodies outdoors until you find the right one. The quest from Velanna implies that the body is further south than it actually is.
