That's great, did I mention you specifically or "those of you who are providing wikipedia links"? please keep your comments on the topic at hand and try to not give a damn if a comment is not relevant to you.

adding only 3% to the greenhouse effect would still increase the temperature a degree or so. A degree may not be too much cause for concern, but even ten degrees would be catastrophic (Americans, remember that a ten degree change in Celsius is almost twenty degrees in Fahrenheit), and our rates of putting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere are not decreasing; they're increasing exponentially.
To quote Augie Auer (all rounded to the nearest thousandth), human related CO2: 0.115%, methane: 0.066%, nitrogen dioxide: 0.047%, CMCs: 0.046%. Added all together, 0.274%

So yes, maybe 3% may cause a 1 degree centigrade shift, but this is, all told, a quarter of a degree. Like I said, negligible.

Also, did none of you read my links? If so, here it is again. To get to the gist of it,
quote:
Four of the top 10 years of US CONUS high temperature deviations are now from the 1930s: 1934, 1931, 1938 and 1939, while only 3 of the top 10 are from the last 10 years (1998, 2006, 1999). Several years (2000, 2002, 2003, 2004) fell well down the leaderboard, behind even 1900.
Like I said, not up, plateauing. Also, to those of you who are providing wiki links, they are of no meaning, much less consequence. Unless you are looking up a proper or otherwise easily proven noun, etc. it is not a source.

Thank you for the welcome, Salmon. :D

How stupid, I forgot to check Spidweb (for about a month or two) before posting this on Nethergate:
quote:
According to Augie Auer, greenhouse gases are made up primarily by water vapor, and by primarily, I mean 95%. Carbon dioxide makes up 3.6%. Of that 3.6%, only 3.2% is man-made, now if you've done your geneforge armor calculation homework, you'd know that that means that humans have contributed 0.1152% of the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Man produced methane, nitrogen dioxide, and CFCs have similarly negligible values.NASA's data happens to be the data used by the civilized world to determine the annual average temperature. Seems they suffered from the Y2K bug, because, after a startlingly large gap was found in the data, starting January 2000, they recalculated the data. Guess what, 1998 ain't the hottest year ever anymore. That honor goes to 1934, hell, 2000-2004 are all behind 1900. In fact, the temperature has been progressively decreasing.

Abilities List in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

No, all creatures are on the same list, and there is only one ability list. All creatures use the same ability list and the ability list applies to all creatures (and weapons).

You could, however, create a new ability with its own number and give that to whichever creature you wish. Just remember to find all creatures that have "import = [whatever the creature number of the modified creature was]" and edit them as well.

Because they were written in Greek and Latin, not Hebrew. Why should they have known?

Also, my understanding is that that particular epithet is reserved for those who come close to being perfect embodiments of evil. Judaism may not recognize Jesus as anyone special, but he was hardly evil.
No, merely for anyone whom it would be preferable to not mention and forget ever existed.

—Alorael, who would very much like to see a citation on your etymology. It seems highly questionable and very close to religious bigotry. Yes, Jews are good at that too.
Latin translation of the Tanach, which translates Yeshu as Jesu, which you handily pointed out is where Jesus comes from.

Y.SH.V: Yemach Sh'mo V'zichro
Yemach Sh'mo V'zichro: Cursed be his name and his memory

This name has been used for at least four separate people in the Talmud.

Just though I should point this out.

Frostbite, Bahssikava, Dilecia.

Exodus misses out because of the god-party game-breaking bugs. Which I got with a level 120 singleton. :confused:

1. Have you found Orrin's Broadsword? Nope.
2. Have you found the Defender's Blade? I think so.
3. Have you brewed a Panacea? Not as far as I can recall.
4. Have you eaten raw nightshade? *Read: have I ever killed myself with raw nightshade?* Oh yea.
5. Have you ever become an unstoppable warrior (temporarily)? RAHHHHHH!!!!
6. Have you found alchemy equipment? Under the sleeping pad.
7. Have you trained with a highlander? Every time, I think.
8. Have you worn rusty armor? Annoying to get and annoying to wear, but superb defense. Some fights are worth it, some it's a liability.
9. Have you discovered the truth about Abominations? Yea. Thanks for all the hypothermia damage.
10. Have you finished the scenario with the prefab? Wasn't easy, but it sure was fun.

..... :eek: 2 year necromancy.

Its maker left the forums so it's unlikely that anybody would still know after all this time, but the essentials of what it does can be done with a little script editing.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that called Exile?

Anyway, didn't Alorael play through A3 with a singleton with only a stick and pants?

Not recommended at all.

EDIT: To clarify, enter with a level 1 singleton. And use the in-scenario prefab party option.

Spells make Frostbite sad.
