The instructions I found on in SunRu and FAQ state that the wiry moss is needed. Are you sure? I sold all the saltweed and its kinda hard to check fast.

Essence shield in Geneforge Series

When I had Alwan in the party, I found essence shield very useful. It worked as +4 bounus to his dexterity. And there is a big difference between 80
% dodge chance and 99%.

Where is my stuff?! in Geneforge Series

Another bug....
I have been cleaning the crypt on the second island. Before combat, I dropped all the heavy things -- some thirty living tools, twenty pieces of lab equipment. I have lived through two waves of attackers. It appears that everything lying on the ground was deleted when dead monsters dropped new things.

Now, where do I report bugs?
And how can I cheat the tools into my inventory or wherever?

I have just checked. If you use only one canister, the ending says that when you look at your hand, it looks somewhat not normal. Everything else is the same.

How do you play as a shaper class?

I have tried to play all three games as a shaper class, and found it impossible to advance in the middle in the games -- my creations weren't powerful enough, I never had enough essence for spells, etc. What am I doing wrong?

G1 and G2 plot summaries plx in Geneforge Series
Apprentice
Member # 5880

You sure you want to hear spoilers? Well, here they are.

In G1 game ends when protagonist leaves the island. If he uses the geneforge, he creates a small state of his own and engages into cold war with the Council. If he does not destroy the Geneforge before leaving, well, that starts a outburst of violence on the continent. I have heard there is no loyal purist ending, even if you don't use canisters. I do not know what happens if you work with either sholai or the shaper -- didn't trust them one bit.

G2 seems to be able to assume an ending with destroyed geneforge.

In G2 loyalist ending causes destruction of Barzites, enslavement of the free serviles and dissapearance of the Takers -- I guess that is the ending assumed in G3. If you side with the serviles, they form a tiny state with great defences and live happily ever after. Didn't try to join the other factions, so ask around.

Greta or Alwan? in Geneforge Series

Eh... different difficulty settings?... come to think of it, all three games did mention something about difficulty from time to time....

No, I only play at the default difficulty settings. There can be no point in increasing it for me, for for complexity of tactics and strategy I play... another game. Guess will check the torment difficulty tomorrow to see how Alwan performs.

There are no rebels and loyalists. Is the tower dweller on the fourth island a loyalist? Examples can go on and on.

Greta or Alwan? in Geneforge Series
Apprentice

I have just landed on the fifth island. I have kept Alwan in the party since the beginning. I decided that:

People who say that Greta is better than Alwan in combat simply don't plan their battles well. Ever since start I maximized Alwan's defences, since I knew he will always be in the first line. Max dexterity, shield, ess shield and armor, augmentation, steel skin. Right now he is a killing machine. He can kill almost everyone we meet. If he can't -- he can hold them long enough for my PC agent to drop all the excess weight and join in the fight.

They both are great, you simply have to use them correctly.

Bravo!

Cmon, we are deciding the direction the world will take in the near future in G2 and G3. Probably the same in G4. A Shaper (with capital letter), the Chosen One understands, controls and directs his feelings.

The diferent factions *POSSIBLE SPOILERS* in Geneforge Series

You all are missing the point.
Have you examined carefully the lady that meets you outside of the school? Read the description, take a look what creations she has with her. The G3 concept is drastically different from previous games in the series. No longer it is shapers justice vs servile justice, it is whether you protect the system you hold a rather humble place in or break it in hopes to gain some power in the new world. Cmon, you don't really believe these slogans about justice and freedom? They are just slogans, propaganda to attract the ignorant masses. The rebels tend to treat everybody just like Shapers, or worse.

The topic is probably to filter out the worst suggestions. No I won't send request to add second mouse button scroll option....

But how come Mac only supports only one mouse button? Isn't it a lot more convinient to have four mouse buttons plus a wheel?
Come to think of it, I would like to have two wheels and three buttons...

Tell me, does anyone that is responsible for development read the forum, or should I send them email with the ideas?

1. Interface
Make more use of "Enter" key.
Scroll the screen with right mouse button.

2. Plot.
Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts completely. Shapers and the rogues are equal powers. The protagonist again is forced to choose between them only to find that there is no longer a difference: Shapers secretly negotiate with rogues to avoid war and direct confronation, to make drayks turn against drakons, while rogues treat serviles and each other just like shapers do

It is obvious that a follower, which development can barely be directed, won't be as effective as the PC. You should praise the developers for making Greta that strong. But you complain instad. What a bunch of ungrateful

Are you using spells from blessing school of magic?

Are you employing creations?

Are you employing followers?

Are you trying to minimize the amount of enemies you face at a time by hiding in corners?

Are you using pods and potions?
