Wow. This thing really caught its second wind. Let's hope we can go the distance, rather than die halfway.

I defer the question of the city's name to Dikiyoba, as Forty was the mayor.

You just somehow managed to remove all the file extensions before uploading. I'm not sure how this was accomplished. What FTP client and Operating System are you using?

rename 's/$/.bmp/g' * has done the trick. Your graphics are now visible under the normal file names.

Thanks, Aran! I'm on Windows and using CrossFTP, a shareware FTP client. I haven't updated it in a while, though, which I expect is the problem.

Cassius was looking out over the city from atop a high hill. Lights sparkled below him, and zealotous militias roamed the dark streets with torches in hand. They were like insects, crawling around on the earth, desperately searching for a pitiful meal.

Cassius glanced away. He suspected someone was watching him. And indeed, nearby, a frail-looking and snivveling creature had emerged out of the night and was staring warily at him. It was Kuroshin, a stooge of Mervingorix's. He approached cautiously, and without ceremony or greeting began to speak.

"A message from my lord. He invites you to attend a summit of the nearby clans, wherein you will be allowed to testify publically as to your actions before a council, which will then decide whether you merit death or simply ostracization. My lord considers this gesture most generous, but orders me to warn you that your survival depends directly upon your attendance."

Cassius was intrigued. Surely Mervingorix would be curious as to Cassuis' percieved disloyalty, but surely again he would not be this interested? Something of interest to Mervingorix could be of interest to himself, Cassius reasoned,and anyway confronting Mervingorix again might be the best way to persuade him not to bother Cassius.

"The place?" Cassius growled.

Kuroshin glanced around fearfully. "The north end. By the meeting of the river Sonne and the city. Underground, in the sewers." And without waiting for a response, Kuroshin disappeared into the night. He hadn't mentioned what time it would be; but then, Cassius and Mervingorix both knew what time; it was always the same time with vampires.

1. Why did you join the boards?
I saw a forum. I said to myself, "Hmm. A forum." The rest is not-so-well documented history.
2. If you did, why did you change your name?
My first name was on a previous account. I couldn't use the same name on two accounts, so I picked a new one.
3. Have you even noticed that I changed mine (besides now)?
I saw your new name at the same time I saw that sentence, so...

The funny thing is, the given birthdate is February 11, 1981. Almost 30 years old. Maybe some people just never learn.

In A/E2, once you bring down the barriers, you can use the Editor to return to Avernum. More areas will have opened up for you.

Actually, I think Nikki means to bury Dikiyoba. Downfall? Dirt? Hint, hint...

It's possible that IFM was purposely misinterpreting the meaning, for humorous effect.

And Nikki probably meant "dirt" as in incriminating evidence, not a burial.

Barring that, troll better next time. Find some real bait so Sara is forced to have a flame-war with you.

And Sara, why on Earth would you talk about this place in real life? Spiderweb is the sort of thing you keep a dark, dirty secret buried deep in your heart.

I vaguely remember this. I think there's a band of rebels/deserters somewhere on the northwest coast of Valorim; when you encounter them, one of them will blow a horn. That's how I got mine.

But it's probably a better idea to edit yourself a horn.

The portrayal of Xerxes was a low and manipulative attempt to attack the modern Iranian character. And the designer might want to play up either the strength of the Spartans or the weakness of the Persian Empire.

The party could be a group of soldiers or bodyguards of the Spartan king, or could even be on the Persian side.

So. I created a new graphic, I suppose.

IMAGE(http://img443.imageshack.us/img443/8496/g501sr6.png)

But what I wanted to talk about was the way I made it. I drew the picture beforehand on an actual piece of paper, and then scanned it to my computer. I was planning to edit and ink what I drew, but the transfer from scan photo to BoA-compliant graphic sheet seems to cause a loss of quality. (Instead I just modeled my graphic after my picture).

I strongly suspect that if I could get this down, I could produce graphics of some actual quality. I know that the smaller I draw, the less shrinking I have to do and the closer the correspondence between the two pictures. Does anyone else have any tips? Has anyone else even tried this? Does anyone know a better way?

If you want to try this, I suggest you make sure that you're not drawing at a slant, as that means you'll have to edit it out, always a hassle.
