Some turkey breeds can no longer reproduce naturally, so they would die out. Chickens would suffer pretty badly from predation, so they might be gone too.

They do.

Cold resistance seems a bit less common--or at least less annoying--than fire resistance or magic resistance. Magic creations from glaahks up all resist magic heavily (though the ability to take attacks from enemy magic creations is probably enough justification to shape a magic creation, something my party was lacking). And the whole last portion of the game is basically fire-resistant drayks and drakons (not really, but there are a lot). Physical damage is pretty reliable, but rarely spectacular.

Litalia won't instantly die should the sun come out from behind the clouds, though. So unless the battle takes place at night or underground, she will clearly win.

There aren't all that many cold-immune creatures. Shades. A few special enemies. Cryodrayks have a fairly large resistance to cold too, I think. I can't think of any others off the top of my head. But cryoas do have a pretty good melee attack as well as their ice breath.

Dikiyoba has eaten fried spam before. The smell of it cooking was atrocious, but it didn't taste bad. Of course, it didn't taste good either.

I don't know if it's MicroPhage's editor (there are too many for me to keep straight), but it's definitely the result of using an editor. I suppose if MicroPhage's editor is the only one you're using, then yes.

I'll answer the questions I can.

quote:
Fourth, I have piles of special items I probably won't use.
In the GF1 and GF2 I could sell them to stores and still be able to buy them back if I needed them for some reason.
Can I do something like that here so I don't have the piles
I'm afraid not.

quote:
Fifth, it is possible to go through the green areas like in the other games but you can't do that here when going from island to island.
Can that be remedied or must I still go through the endpoints to get to the skiff. (I learned a couple new words when playing this game)
No, you always have to use boats to get between islands.

quote:
Sixth, in the previous games when you picked up a group of items it said, "how many?"
It doesn't say that here so I can't consolidate my tools in one bunch or I'd have to carry around 100 pounds just for tools.
I fix this problem but putting my tools, crystals, and other items in several groups of about 20.
20 pounds is alot light than 100 so I might be able to use my tools without having to not carry any and go back to "home base," that is South End, and pick up all of them and use some.
Hold down shift as you click on a pile of items, and you'll be asked how many.

You could probably find organic and/or local sources of meat, eggs, and dairy. It just takes more work and costs more money. (Which hurts, yes.) It shouldn't be too hard to find, though. If a brand is selling milk without using horomones or eggs from free-range chickens, they will be advertising it right on the carton.

And it's not like soy beans are the only legumes out there. :P

Really, having creations doesn't reduce your experience by all that much, since things are worth less experience each time you gain a level, so you gain additional experience just by having the creations slow your leveling down.

The major problem with low level creations is that they become susceptible to mental attacks in the last third of the game. Tier 4 and 5 creations seem to be immune.
You know, I didn't think there were enough mental attacks to make mental resistance a huge issue. Maybe a few of the mass mental attacks, but mass attacks always hurt if you don't have most of your creations out of the way.

It's very possible. I played a game through as a shock trooper on torment without absorbing any creations, or letting any die until the very end. I even managed to keep my fyora useful up until its tragic death in the Titan's Hall. (After which I got bored and went on a rampage in some major cities and stopped redoing battles if I lost another creation. I think the death of that faithful fyora drove my shock trooper insane.)

It does take some planning, though. You almost certainly don't want three creations before Dillame, because you'll want those spots available for more powerful creations later on in the game. Early on, the shock trooper is more than capable of fighting for herself. And you will want a cryoa. They're very good creations. There's a fair bit of leeway with the canisters, so don't be afraid to use a walkthrough to find a drayk canister or three and use them. (No in-game effect until 5 canisters, and no ending change until 12 or something like that.) Put just enough points into blessing magic that you can cast speed and mass energize as soon as possible and use them constantly. You'll want to be good at casting healing spells too. And I recommend against any early melee creations--early creations have less health and resistance, so you need them to have ranged attacks so they can stay out of harm's way. By the end of the game, my other creations stayed up front to knock enemies down to a sliver of health while my roamer and fyora (the weakest two) hung out in back to finish that sliver of health off.

That's probably more than you wanted to know, but Dikiyoba hopes it's useful to you.

I suspect this has something to do with the intense pressures in their natural environment, and some biochemical reaction to being cooked. Or, more simply, the stuff that binds together the muscles in surface fish is stronger or "morer" (<- that is a new word) than in those fish found at more than 40 fathoms of depth.
I want to say that tasty, crumbly white flesh is mostly due to them being fairly inactive fish and so don't need the same type of muscle as more active fish, but don't quote me on it.

Considering that GoldenKing is in a clan full of people from Spiderweb, Dikiyoba's guess is he was being ironic.

Strengths and Weaknesses of the classes in Geneforge 4: Rebellion
Councilor
Member # 6600

Dikiyoba prefers to play the shock trooper class (average battle, shaping strong, magic weak). Dikiyoba never really liked spells in Geneforge, plus it's fun to lead a pack of creations into battle (complete with wild yells).

Of course not. Bats with the strength of fifty men have only just been developed. You've obviously never had a wingbolt poop on you, or you'd wear a hat too. They're far worse than pigeons or seagulls. :P
