For clarification:
I use both Windows XP and OS X quite regularly.
My personal computer (where I run any games that I own) runs Windows XP.
The multitrack console and mixing machine that I use for a good deal of my audio work is a ProTools interface, which is only supported on Macs.
Incidentally, I ran a Counter-Strike server off of a Red Hat Linux box for a year. I've decided since that I like having a GUI. A lot.

My all-time favorite OS is Windows 2000, noteworthy for its stability, security, backwards compatibility, and the ability to have tactile control over just about everything without having to manually open the config files.
And seeing as Windows has all but disowned this particular OS, choosing to look pretty and marketing to an ignorant consumer, I chose Other.

--------------------
The Silent Assassin has given up on the OS wars and believes that the next great argument of any significance will be a debate over pie.
He believes that the best way to deliver is by applying the first to the face, and then spreading the rest evenly over the rest of the body.

Risk is the ultimate board game. and everyone knows how to play, to boot.
Parcheesi tends to lead to interesting and unexpected conversation, even if the gameplay is somewhat basic.

I do still have yet to play Settlers.

Apples to Apples is not a board game. But it is the world's greatest party game.

Specific requirements for custom graphics? in Blades of Avernum Editor
Lifecrafter
Member # 6700
Profile Homepage #1
There is indeed a complete list of the requirements: It's in the documentation!

But just in case you didn't read the documentation:
quote:

Graphics intended for different purposes need to be arranged in the sheet in different ways (more on this later), but your graphics have to have these qualities:
They need to be at 72 dpi.
They need to be either 8 bit (a 256 color palette) or 16 bit.
Once your sheet is made (with new terrain icons, item icons, or whatever), you put it into the game. You can create up to 100 custom sheets. They can be numbered 500 to 599. How they are put into the game depends on whether you are using a Macintosh or Windows.
...
All large terrain icons are 46 pixels wide and 55 pixels high. They are arranged in sheets in rows of 10, with a black frame around each icon.
Floor tiles need to be drawn with exactly the same diamond shape and positioned as far down as possible in the frame. See sheet 700 for the shape and positioning.
For terrain types like pillars, table, etc., you may need to shift the icon around in the frame a bit to get it positioned exactly.
All small terrain icons are 16 pixels wide and 16 pixels high. They are arranged in sheets in rows of 10, with a black frame around each icon.
In the editor, the icon is drawn as-is.
In the automap, the automap draws a 4x4 graphic for each space. It gets that graphic by taking every fourth pixel from the small graphic, starting at the upper left. So the upper left pixel of the 4x4 automap icon is the upper left pixel of the small graphic, the next pixel to the right on the automap is the pixel 4 to the right in the 16 x 16 icon, and so on.
...
Look in Item Graphics to see a wide assortment of sample item graphic sheets. All items graphics are 28 x 28, arranged in the sheet in rows of 10, with a black frame around them.
Each item has two graphics: first, the small icon for an item on the ground in the terrain area.
Second, the large icon that appears in the getting, store, and inventory area. Both icons for any given item have to be in the same sheet.
...
Look in Character Graphics to see many sample sheets of creature graphics. For sheets with creature graphics, the icons are 46 pixels wide and 55 pixels high (like terrain). The icons are arranged in rows of four, with frames around them
The graphics in each row represent some pose or action for the creature. There are two sizes of sheet for creatures:
The Small Sheet
First Row - Creature just standing there.
Second Row - Creature attacking.
Third Row - Death animation.
Fourth Row - Four tiny (11 x 16) views of the creature facing in the four cardinal directions, used when drawing it outdoors.
For examples, look at sheets 1450 and 1452.
The Large Sheet
First Row - Creature just standing there.
Second Row - Creature with weapon out.
Third Row - Creature attacking.
Third Row - Creature sitting in chair.
Fifth Row - Death animation.
Sixth Row - Four tiny (11 x 16) views of the creature facing in the four cardinal directions, used when drawing it outdoors.
For examples, look at sheets 1500 and 1513.
To tell the game whether a creature uses the large or small sort of sheet, use cr_small_or_large_template.

I do rather hope that no one will ever quote any of this.
- Hun Lori, a false prophet

--------------------

"You must understand," the head librarian said, "as a rule, the gods do not tell mortals of the ways of godhood. It keeps the power in their favor, I suppose." He chuckled briefly, but the priest and the traveller did not appear amused. "What we do commonly know is handed down through tradition and myth," he continued. "Many bards are fond of romanticising old stories of heroes by causing the hero to ascend to godhood upon victory."

"This vein is more along the lines of what I'm interested in," the traveler in blue said. The priest nodded in emphatic agreement. "If you have any research on, say, trends or studies of cultural works involving heroes and gods, those would work."

The librarian thought to himself for a moment. "Actually, we had a scribe of Ashataro in the area not long ago, doing a study on the mortals' historical perspectives of the gods. He was kind enough to a copy of his notes upon us before he left. I'll see if I can dig it up. Wait right here." He walked off.

Noric grabbed the table for support and glared at Sveltas. "'Do you have any religious texts on the ascension of mortals to godhood?'???"

"The direct approach is sometimes the fastest with a collection like this," Sveltas pointed out. Indeed, the library was a grand, two-storied structure grouped in Narrow Creek's temple area, competing for attention with a carved marble temple of Digirid, a local agricultural god, a shrine to Fallian, god of fortune, and a bookstore dedicated to Yeahyup, a regional protector, among others.

"Fine. Fine. You win this one." Noric raised his hands in defeat.

"So now you'll tell me what the hell happened last night?" Sveltas demanded.

"A little personal space, please?" Noric asked. Sveltas was all but touching noses with him. He realized this, and backed off. "Fine, you want what happened last night, this is it. I saw the thugs in the hall, and knew they were there for you. I didn't care: I was tired, I went to bed."

"I thought you said you don't need sleep."

"I don't. But not resting does tend to make me cranky." Noric forced a smile as one of the assistant librarians walked by. "Suffice to say, I daydreamed a little bit about you fighting those guys. I went through a particularly funny scenario where you actually won, and suddenly you start yelling for help from the hallway. I go out there to find you reinacting that last scenario. That's what happened."

"I didn't yell for help," Sveltas said quietly.

"Yes, you did."

"Did not. Didn't make a sound."

"'Noric, Noric, oh god, help me, come on?'?"

"No. I might have been thinking it, but..." Sveltas trailed off. "Maybe..."

"Here we go." The librarian strode up with a thick leather-bound tome. "I'm going to have to ask you to stay at this table with it, as it's our only copy. Let me know if you need anything." He strode off again.

"'Maybe' what?" Noric asked.

Sveltas disrgarded the question and instead sat down and opened the book. "I think we may have a start here." He pulled a monocle from a tunic pocket and began to use it in scouring the first page.

Noric bent in and looked at the open pages: a map of Kalandha, annotated and marked with locations, names, and dates. "We might as well get comfortable. I don't think that we'll be leaving anytime soon," he said.

Sveltas peered up, removing the monocle. "Why?"

"Because we were followed all morning by the minstrel from the inn last night, and he's still watching us through the window."

What a long strange trip... in General

Member # 6700

As my story is only fourteen months old, it is nowhere near as impressive as some of the others here... We'll see...

I joined two weeks into the year of 2006, intent in learning about BoA, as well as gleaning information for a piece of fanfic.
Since then...

I rediscovered the art form known as the webcomic (actually finding a comic worthy of my attention), forever altering my life and habits.
I performed in a stage production of Arsenic and Old Lace.
I officially changed my major to Film and radio production.
I became addicted to Nightwish.
I went on vacation with my girlfriend's family.
I recreated an old story concept into something that I feel may make an interesting miniseries.
I learned how to lay sign vinyl.
I bought a computer.
I bought a rusted-out Thunderbird and repaired it to the point where it passed inspection with flying colors.
I got a position at the school radio station.
I fell in love all over again. With the same woman, of course.
The Silent Assassin is now taller than me. Jerk.
I tried to put out a BoA scenario, only to lose two weeks of work that I had counted on.

That's the highlights, guess.

I dunno, Riibu. Certain unnamed members may take it personally.

I've been following the "if you ignore it, it will go away" and the "lead by example" rules for this particular wave...
That doesn't make certain members any less annoying, of course. Even I have found myself desiring to take a knife or (heaven help me) an AWP to some particular newbies.

Incidentally, I ran into this earlier today. It struck me as ironic.

What can be said of Kavuk?
Not much.

- Horace Likert, current Imperial Governor of Dorian Province

--------------------

Sveltas's promise of a great hangout to spend the night turned out to be a rowdy inn-and-tavern, and if first judgement proved accurate, -and-brothel as well, in the outskirts of a town called Narrow Creek. Not that Noric expected anything different from Sveltas, but he knew that Sveltas knew that he hated large crowds, even before his ascension. After ascension, well... Noric had made a point of avoiding larger crowds after an early incident where he accidentally setting a merchant on fire just by thinking about it.

"I told you we'd feel right at home, eh?" Sveltas swaggered back to the table with his fifth pint of the local ale. He was attracting much of the attention from the bar, and was obviously enjoying it.

"You know, I could up and decide to become the god of sobriety," Noric quietly said as Sveltas sat.

"Oh, Lord, no!" Sveltas chuckled into his drink. "So what is the plan, oh High God Noric? You told me to bring you to a place where we can stay the night, and here we are!"

"First, you're going to stop eyeing the whore in the corner," Noric growled. Sveltas scowled. "Now, you had a plan to spread worshippers through this valley. Where did you plan to start? Business contacts?"

"Proving your glory through finance, I was, and you had to bring me back and away from my little cloister."

"You were going stir-crazy, Sveltas. Admit it."

Sveltas settled, dismissing most of his half-drunken act. "As it happens, yes, the owner here is a good personal friend and supporter of your priory."

"You haven't played him at all?" Sveltas had a history of conning and stealing from prospective merchants, even while he and Noric had been hunters together.

"No."

Noric could tell that Sveltas was lying, but at this point, it would not matter. All that he needed was a way to find the right people. An innkeeper involved in smuggling would be a good start. "I want to speak with him in the morning, when the bar is closed."

"Nonsense. We will be busy in the morning." Sveltas promptly chugged the latter half of his pint. Noric raised an eyebrow. "Ah, you don't think that my friends and the good company were the only reason why I brought you here, do you?"

"I think you answered your own question," Noric said.

"This particular settlement is home to a particularly nice library. You told me yourself that you needed guidance. Tonight we wine and dine and enjouy ourselves. Tomorrow, we do research." Sveltas stood to get another drink.

"You can party. I'm going to bed."

--------------------

The thugs had been hired by the innkeeper to put pressure on a whiny little bald guy who called himself a high priest. Something about being shortchanged had been mentioned, but the rationale really didn't matter. The innkeeper said that the priest would know why said pressure was being applied.

It was during the first watch that the priest's companion, a man in blue robes, possibly a ranger, had come upstairs. The three had been on alert since then, waiting.
The priest himself did not come upstairs until the middle of the third watch. The bar had been closed for over an hour, and most of the local women had either gone home or to bed.
The priest had clearly been intoxicated when the first thug stepped out into the hallway, intercepting him. "Going somewhere, Father?" he said.
The priest clearly thought it was a joke, and tried to go around. He was intercepted by the other two thugs.
"We're here to give you a sermon, priest," one of the others said.
The third promply rolled up his sleeve and began the lesson with an uppercut to the priest's jaw.
The first grabbed the priest by the shoulders, holding him in place for a breadbasket blow from the second thug.
The blow was intercepted by the priest's waiting hand, which caught the thug's fist and twisted his arm back. The first thug was shocked to find the priest's elbow smashing into his groin. He collapsed in pain.
The third thug simply stared down the corridor as the drunken priest dispatched the second.

The man in blue robes had entered the corridor and was watching them.

The Silent Assassin wonders why there are so many clips from Half-Life and Nightwish here. It's not like I don't listen to them all of the time...

Huzzah for demographic surveys.
How is this controversial (aside from racial choice)?

And so the great god Werien passed on his mantle to the hero Azur, who became like unto Werien.
So it was that Werien passed into the next plane, as is the course of all, both god and man, and Azur took Werien's place in the Pantheon of Lur. And there, Azur played his part in the pantheon and shaped the world for a good many generations.
- the conclusion of the Ballade of Rocks by Arthur Meyer of the Bard's Guild, circ 200 years ago.

--------------------

A figure in blue robes appears on the skyline.

The man in the cowl cursed the wind and the cold mountain air. Of all the places to establish a priory, Sveltas had to pick a freaking desolate mountainside. If they were going to get this whole thing started, why couldn't they do it in public?
No, of course, Sveltas had assured him that this would work. They would begin as mysterious monks, working in that cloak-and-dagger thing that Sveltas was so good at. Then, they would begin to branch out into the Valley of Kavuk, gaining a following, and then, they would spread to the plains of Array, where the Minstrel's Guild lay. Fame (or, infamy, as Sveltas had proposed) would bring followers after that.

The cowled man finally reached the priory door. Sveltas had insisted on building inside an abandoned mine for the sake of keeping to the cloak-and-dagger theme.
Good Surita - no. No, he didn't need Surita's help anymore. Not that he thought she would give it, anyway.
He banged on the door.

The acolyte brought the cowled man to the Inner Sanctum, a room furnished in stained pine and cherry wood, carved intricately into the living rock.
The cowled man waited to remove his hood until aftr the acolyte had left the room.
"My god! Stephen! I mean-" Sveltas stopped and prostrated himself in front of the cowled man. "Good Lord Noric, how may your humble high priest serve you?"
"You can cut the bull for right now, Sveltas," Noric said, pulling off his traveller's cloak. "It's not like the underpriests are around."
"But it's been five years... how... where have you... by all of the gods, you look younger than I remember."
Noric lifted Sveltas to his feet. "Yes, all of the gods; that's what this is about, isn't it?"
Sveltas backed away. "Where have you been all of this time?"
Noric began to examine the decor of his Inner Sanctum. He noticed a bottle of brandy sitting on a nearby table, and made his way to pour a drink. "I have spent the last five years learning about who and what I now am. I've tried to meet the competition. I've tried to figure out what the hell I'm supposed to do for the rest of eternity. I have crossed from one end of Kalandha to the other and back." He look a long draw of the scotch, directly from the bottle. "And I have learned virtually nothing."
"My Lord, I-" Sveltas began.
"Sveltas, you remember where we were when Kyros Himself caused me to ascend after we defeated the bloody god Saluc? How he told me that it was my birthright?"
"I was with you, My Lord. It was beautiful."
"Beautiful, yes. And then we decided that we were going to have to work on getting a following, since Kyros never told us how it would work."
"And I have brought you a following, Lord, I have."
Noric bounded through one of the pluch sofas and immediately had Sveltas pinned to the far wall by his neck. "I do not wish to be used as a cover for your smuggling operations, Charlatain!"
Sveltas struggled for breath. "My Lord, I assure you, it has only gone to raise funding for your-"
"For your priory, Sveltas!" Noric turned away, dropping Sveltas to the floor. "Kyros told us that the Pantheon would make contact with me. In five years of visiting other shrines and learning nothing but dogma, they have not."
Sveltas stood, rubbing his neck.
"Sveltas, I am a god without a purpose. I have no patron art, I do not bless people, I don't even know how to bless people. Hell, I don't even hear prayers or anything like that." he paused, watching Sveltas rub his neck. "I'm sorry I overreacted, but you don't have to be a baby about it."
"Yes, Lord." Sveltas removed his hand.
"So I have decided," Noric said.
"Yes?"
"You and I are going on a little trip."
"We are?"
"You aren't that stupid, Sveltas. Don't make me force you to be that stupid, either. I probably won't get it right on the first try."
"What are you planning, Ste-I mean, Noric?"
Noric retrieved his travelling cloak from the chair. "Tell the priory that you're going on a pilgrimage. I do know that we thieves and smugglers have never had a patron god. Until now."
"I thought you said-"
"I'm tired of your lying, Sveltas. Now this priory will really be doing my will. Oh... and giving twenty-five percent of all income back to society. Call it social work."
"WHAT?"
"What the hell would we do with all of the money that we're going to make anyway? Hide it? Spend it?"
"Both?" Sveltas suggested.
"Possibly. We'll get there when we get there." Noric donned his cloak. "We leave for the valley as soon as you make your announcement. It's time to build us a religion."
