I really wish you kids would knock it off. If you want to run around playing necromancers, find an appropriate RP thread and do it there. This brand of inane gimmickry is really annoying.

Maybe the native zip support offered by WinXP and later versions? Although I checked 7zip, I really only use it for rar files.

People have occasionally gotten the games for free as well. For example, one of the possible prizes for the BoA scenario design contest was a Spiderweb game.

It didn't use to be that way. I still remember a time when Ned was a well-meaning, kind, not-overtly-religious man. Now he's just another preachy republican fundie. I miss the good ole days...

As for the creationist museum, if this would happen anywhere else in the world besides the U.S., I'd be surprised. Now I'm just sad.

(I'll act like this wasn't a rhetorical question.)

I'm guessing it's because of media coverage. Exile (the original) was reviewed by the largest Finnish computer game magazine, and a demo of Exile 3 (at least) was included on the annual demo cd for the largest local computer magazine.

The Avernums and Geneforges have probably gotten mentioned in said magazines as well, but I've really stopped paying attention, since by the time they review a Spiderweb game, it's been out for a long time already.

Anyways, getting publicity like this in a small country like Finland is bound to attract a few people over here as well.

(1) What's your main goal in life?
Seeing my grandchildren grow up to be even better people than their parents.

(2) If you won a million dollars, what would be your first thought?
(After a series of expletives) I'm going to have to slow down with my studies.

(3) When you are mad; do you usually stay angry or do you yell to release the anger?
Stay angry. For a month or so. Luckily, I get angry very rarely.

(4) Tell us an anecdote of anything that happened to you today.
Uh, I woke up too late, took the train to the city, had lunch with my mom, and came to school. I'm waiting for an exam to begin right now.

(5) What's your current Philosophy on life?
At the moment it's Go with the Flow. Again.

(6) If you created a deadly disease, what would you call it?
I wouldn't. Create one, that is.

(7) What should you be doing right now?
Nothing, nothing really at all. I've got fourty minutes 'til the exam starts. What I should be doing this entire month, is studying. Thousands of pages of legal text.

(8) If this were Southpark, what character do you think you'd be?
I've been compared to Butters a few times too many. Just don't see the similarity myself, but I suppose that'll have to do.

(9) What occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid ?
I've never really had a dream job when growing up, but I suppose I wanted to be a computer programmer at one point.

(10) What happened to those dreams?
I found a better one.

(11) Describe the last dream you can remember.
A friend recently gave me a new plant for my apartment. Last night I had a dream, that all the leaves had fallen off, and the thing was dead. I still watered it, though. Coincidentally, this is what happened to the previous plant I had.

(12) If you were a supermodel, which supermodel would you be?
The one that made a lot of money, quit, and got a real job.

(13) If you had to live in a hole, what kind of creature would you be?
No idea. A sentient one?

(14) If you could have one thing right now, what would it be and why?
A thing, you say? A piece of good news. Of any kind. I seem to be fresh out of those, since I just found out that I have to graduate within a year, or the course requirements for my Master's thesis will double.

(15) Name one thing about you that embarrasses you.
If it embarrasses me, do you really think I'd write it down here?

(16) Do you usually walk around your house with sandals or barefoot?
Barefoot. If it gets cold, I wear my badger slippers. Nothing says "street cred" like badger slippers.

(17) Have you ever gotten something you really wanted but thought you wouldn't get?
No. Never. When I get something that I really like, it's usually out of the blue.

(18) Name one thing you are presently excited about or fascinated by.
The development of certain relationships.

One small glitch that I encountered: Once I entered the basement, all of the gear from my group was lying on the floor right below my character.

Rats Aplenty: passing the gates ... how? in Blades of Avernum
Shock Trooper
Member # 6666

There's a walkthrough in the scenario folder.

Anyways, about the statues: You need four ancient pieces of armor, one for each statue. They can be found at different places in the lost city. Place the items in front of the statues (they have to be in a specific order), and the portcullises will open.

As for the "eternal rat", I believe you're referring to the curious rat. It mirrors your first character's movements, and was supposed to disappear right after you made it walk onto the rune on the opposite side of the chasm. The fact that you're already at the portcullises, and the rat keeps reappearing, seems to suggest a bug.

I share your concerns about how this will all look decades from now Alec, but you should remember that history is not written only by Americans. With the attention this whole travesty has received, bystanders (meaning countries not directly involved in the war or occupation) will have a whole lot more information to write their history books with. Iraq will be remembered for what it was.

(I just added every single song from my hard drive into a playlist, and put it on shuffle. Am expecting some very weird songs.)
This song will be playing when I meet the love of my life:
Fingers to the Bone - Deep Purple (This was probably the first time I heard the song.)

Right now, I feel:
Your Possible Pasts - Pink Floyd (I feel... bad?)

What makes me happy is:
The Acid Queen - The Who (Okay, some guy with acid makes me happy. Odd.)

My love of life was inspired by the song:
Mr. Jones - Counting Crows (I can live with that. Nice, sorta-positive melancholy.)

My message to the world has always been:
Words I Might Have Ate - Green Day ( :) Well, I don't think I'm that insecure.)

Next time I'm in front of a crowd, I'll say:
F**k Her Gently - Tenacious D ( :D Heh, I'm an emissary of love.)

My friends see me as:
96 Quite Bitter Beings - CKY (Damn you Winamp! You've got my number!)

When I'm drunk I say:
My Little Empire - Manic Street Preachers (I don't get it.)

My alter-ego is:
Helpless Dancer - The Who (Can't argue with that.)

My deepest secret is:
The Figurehead - The Cure (Hmm. I actually own this CD. Okay, that's good enough for a secret.)

My day will be like:
Suicide Solution - Ozzy Osbourne (Oi! It's not that bad!)

When I'm in the shower, I sing:
Hard Luck Woman - Kiss (Naw.)

My favorite thing to do is:
It's Gonna Go Away - Korn (Never heard this song before.)

My parents are like the song:
Twist - Korn (Uhh... Divorced?)

My ultimate song for dancing is:
Brand New Cadillac - The Clash (What? Let's try this again: )
The Pilgrim - Iron Maiden (Okay, this one's better.)

At my wedding they'll play:
Monkey Wrench (Live in Melbourne) - Foo Fighters (So, I'm getting married in Australia, and Dave Grohl's going to be playing? I can live with that.)

The story of my life is:
How Long - Red Hot Chili Peppers (Ouch.)

My innermost desire is:
Born a Girl - Manic Street Preachers ( :D Not true. At all.)

To cheer myself up I sing:
Istället för Ljud - Kent (I don't know the words. A do-over: )
Heart Shaped Box - Nirvana (Will do.)

At my funeral they'll play:
This Twilight Garden - The Cure (Huh? Oh well, I won't be there, so it doesn't really matter. At least it's appropriate.)

Yeah, the topic title might be a tad misleading as well. I for one came here looking for some good ole fashioned teenage angst. You can imagine my disappointment.

This is a celebratory topic for your post count, 1959. Buddy Holly died in -59, Che Guevara was part of a little revolt in -59, Explorer-6 was launched in said year, and Morrisey the vocalist for the Smiths was born then. As for the Wizard of Oz, all I could find was that in -59, Judy Garland was diagnosed with hepatitis and was told she could never sing again.

Edit:

No, that's not what you need to know. What you need to know is how he does it. ;)

Ah, but a true master never reveals his secrets! Plus, they threw him out of the bar before he could annoy us any further.
