Martial Arts? in General

A competent and knowledgable designer could very easily make a special script for NPCs to attack using martial arts. It would be much harder to do that for PCs, though.

For example, make sure that cells 2,3 actually correspond to a a location in the town.

Meh. You did the work. If you can't find any Demon Claws just give them to yourself in the dialog script.

Probably the most common grammar mistake in English is saying, "It's me." While, common misuse has made the correct form, "It is I" sound wrong, it is correct.

Sorry, couldn't resist this: It is sounds, with an S.

:P


Sorry, couldn't resist this. It is "sound", without an "s". There is no popular or grammatical justification for changing that verb.

They have Sliths, too. Now that I think about it, it's getting sort of suspicious.

Wizards has been trying to consolidate creature types. Falcon becomes bird and so forth. So the nephlim creature type must be pretty major. Wizards will probably be coming out with at least a few more Nephlim.

When we have a larger sample of the shape of Nephlim, we'll have a better idea of what exactly they look like in the Magic universe.

There is a book containing predicitons of the fate of the Roman Empire when playing as Romans. There's also some low-level spells tucked away with that stuff.

The prediction pictures depict a Roman Emperor participating in Christian rituals instead of condemning them. There's also some bit about the fall of the Empire which I can't quite clearly remember.

A HLPM god-party would have no trouble winning that scenario. A demigod-party that got there by working their way through every previous scenario definitely has the work cut out for them. The problem with god parties is that nothing can hit them, not even a 100-level monster with an obscene amount of strength and dexterity.
Even when I had a god-party (75 of every stat and all spells at level 5), I still found the cave with all the dark wyrms in Nephilim Mystery to be very difficult.

You were probably concentrating too much on the Dark Wyrms then. As long as you're focused on them, they can be replaced endlessly. But once you cut off the source...

"Fangs" will appease him. "Teeth", however, makes him attack you. If I rememeber correctly.

As you can see, those walls are moldy. There's also a secret door somewhere around there.

You can also check out Sweetgrove's scripts in the Valley of Dying Things; look for Bruning.

The key to the puzzle is figuring out that you can't do anything with it. Or, at least, that's what makes me feel better when I think about how I didn't solve said puzzle.

Two copies of the same topic are made when someone clicks the button to make a topic twice, in the same way a double-post is made. Although the two posts of COWboy were not double-posts; he just didn't edit his first post.

Now, as for item lists, Drakefyre already has one here.
He also has a list of special items here.

I keep on mixing up BoA with A1-3. That's probably why I'm always making confused posts in this thread.

That's what I think too. I just wish the remake doesn't require me to pay again.
