Let's see... 8 MST. I'll try to be there.

It seems a few of scenarios seems to have gone under the radar. SupaNik's, Thralni's...

And here I was, hoping for a new BoA script...

EDIT: Thanks for the title change, Ed. Stupid words with more than one meaning.

BoA Editor Remake in Blades of Avernum Editor

If you are talking about the 3D editor, it is already done for both Mac & Windows (Windows might still be a beta, but it works fine for me).

Find it here .

--------------------
IF I EVER BECOME AN EVIL OVERLORD:
I will not include a self-destruct mechanism unless absolutely necessary. If it is necessary, it will not be a large red button labelled "Danger: Do Not Push". The big red button marked "Do Not Push" will instead trigger a spray of bullets on anyone stupid enough to disregard it. Similarly, the ON/OFF switch will not clearly be labelled as such.

Oh my. The latest in the AshbyGate fiasco.

I think by now everyone should be aware that protesting JV's habits by misquoting him will result in a ban. What TM did was akin to insulting a dragon after it has gnawed off all but one of your limbs. Hopefully, he'll be back, and hopefully, he'll be more ... restrained.

It's amazing how much time you have to spend just thinking about a scenario before touching the editor, even for a small one. I started thinking about my idea around early January, and didn't start with the editor until early February.

Oh boy. I'm going to be very optimistic and not say anything about the likelihood of this getting finished.

I think I'm the opposite extreme. After every member telling me to create a small scenario, I'm making a scenario with one outdoor section and 6 towns/dungeons (2 of which are VTE).

Anyway, I recommend the Encyclopedia Ermariana.

EDIT: Stupid UBB Code.

I think the best way to deal with this particular crisis is to return to the status quo and forget we ever left it (the technique also known as "sweeping under the rug"). Like JV said, they've both made mistakes, let's fix them and learn from them.

Conventional wisdom states you become an oldbie when no one remembers you being a newbie. Therefore, I consider everyone who registered before '06 to be an oldbie.

Appearing in an Archmage Alex or Slarty comic also helps.

I'm so sad; no more Nephil archer on Torment.

In BoA, it was Nephil archer with Fast on Feet & Brittle Bones, with a disgusting amount of DEX, Bows, and Sharpshooter. Worked pretty good (APF was weird though).

I change him to FoF & Deadeye in A4, and I'm feeling pretty good after mowing down a couple goblins. Then I run into baddies I can't drop in one shot. Stupid eight moves per round. Stupid changing Attacks of Opportunity into "slowing down" (NO! 9AP -> 1AP!). I renounce all claims I made on how I liked the new combat system.

Oh well. Maybe I'll try "Hard" instead of "Torment".

Hmmm. I'll continue the trend with MP.

I'm very happy the job boards from A3 have remained. While I haven't gotten that far yet, I look forward to area-effect spells. The new AP system seems promising: a fighting retreat using your meatshield is now a plausible tactic.

EDIT: Nope, no longer like the new AP system. My nephil archer with Fast on Feet can no longer rely on "Take Attack of Opportunity, move four spaces back, shoot". Stupid "slowing down".

Now just to master the art of playing with a mouse instead of keyboard & keypad. No 'Look' command? Arghhhhhhhhh!!!
