Finally.

The spamming in RWG was to be expected, but SubTerra deserved a better death than the one it got.

Oh well. Time to celebrate a victory against SPiced hAM!

Oh... joy.

Probably a good thing I wasn't able to post yesterday. My 'Net connection was down (Youpi for Telus!), and even if it got fixed by the time I get home tonight, I'll be busy tonight and all of tomorrow, so I may be a while in posting an IC.

2. A 25$ book can raise your test scores just as much as any expensive class. You just need the discipline to study yourself. (I know plenty of examples of both people who greatly benefited from studying from a book and people who got little use from expensive classes their parents sent them to.)
To clarify for people not from the States, are you talking about that acronym test, or just high school marks in general?

Meh, though I've only read the Book of Atrus. It was okay, but maybe you've gotta be a Myst diehard or something to enjoy 'em. :P

Internet tests are so inaccurate. Except for the one that pegged me at 149 I.Q. That was right on the money. Pay no attention to the slew of lower scores I got.

get_flag versus get_sdf in Blades of Avernum Editor
Guardian
Member # 6670
Profile Homepage #2
For consistency, I'd use get_flag, because there is no set_sdf or inc_sdf, just set_flag and inc_flag. I think JV just uses get_flag.

EDIT: According to the Wikibook reference:
quote:
short get_flag(short a,short b)
Identical to get_sdf.

short get_sdf(short a,short b)
Returns SDF(a,b).
So I'm guessing JV just had get_sdf to begin with, then added get_flag for consistency, leaving get_sdf just in case some of his code still referenced it.

Having just seen episodes 1-13, I gotta wonder what is the attraction. I mean, I realize it is all DnD and stuff and poking fun at TPTB, but really. Is it more than that? Will there ever be some topical episodes that relate to real life?
What character development OotS does have doesn't occur until much later. Essentially, OotS is just your stock fantasy characters running around a standard fantasy environment with an utter lack of respect for the fourth wall. You don't have to memorize the d20 system to enjoy it, but if fantasy webcomics ain't your cup of tea, don't read it.

Or you could just tell players to keep their saves, and put a utility into OBoE to put a SDF from one save to another.

I have no idea how nodes work, but what stops you from using an external file? Something like:
<campaign name="Spheres">
[[array of flags]]
</campaign>

<campaign name="Adventurer's Club">
...
That way, each designer can work without worrying about namespace collision.

Well, it sometimes took us months
to come up with ideas when playing MoS... that RP was very educational what comes to patience. Were just in a slow phase now, waiting for the less active people to catch up and bring their characters back to the spotlight.
Hopefully MoS will be the exception and not the norm. ;)

Though it's true; excessive speed isn't good. Avernum Reloaded had a post per person per day in its heyday, and it burnt out.

That, and the horrific combination of exams and Rakshasi. :P

Let me know one thing before I go:

Why?
- Joth Graffiti
--------------------

“Not another step,” a strained voice came from the shadows to the left. Ashataro stopped and turned slowly to face the speaker, spreading his hands away from his sides.

“I bear no weapons,” he said, peering into the dimness in an attempt to see the other man. The morning sun had not yet crested the horizon, yet he could see the other man held a wickedly sharp object in the pre-dawn light. A second glance made him lift an eyebrow. “Is that... a pottery shard?”

The other man was taken aback for a moment before ruefully shook his head as he placed the shard on a rickety table. “Suppose you don’t look to much of a threat at that. Still, it’s considered rude to walk into someone’s home unannounced and uninvited, even in Joth.”

A home, Ashataro thought to himself as he grimaced. Between the gaping holes in the walls, the crack in the roof, and the trash on the floor, it sure didn’t look like one. “I apologize; I didn’t realize anyone lived. I wouldn’t have passed through here if not for the... reconstruction.”

Only now were the noises of the waking city beginning to drown out the ceaseless scraping of rock upon rock that had droned on the entire night. The other man manoeuvred his way around the debris in his abode to one of the holes in his wall. After a minute of mutely staring at the floating blocks of stone beyond, he began to speak breathlessly. “This one... he’s different. No hidden path to eternal glory, no prosperity in return for servitude, nothing that smacks of the other priests in this wretched city. He just goes to work.” He fell silent for a time, and Ashataro had wended his way to the other side of the rundown building before the other man spoke up again. “Dare we place our trust in him?”

Ashataro paused, searching for words. Finally, he responded, not looking back. “I think not, my friend. This new god may aid you for a time, but the only one who is capable of truly helping you is yourself.”

He hear a snort of derision behind him as he stepped away from the hovel. “Really. What must have I been doing these past decades?”
