I would suggest the following:

* Lower essence costs for battle creations, up HP and defense from all damage types relative to non-battle creations.
* Make intelligence actually mean something to non-battle creations higher than Fryoas. A 2 intelligence Wingbolt might only get off two shots before being exhausted. This forces players to invest more here for non-battle creations.
* Quick action and stun for battle alphas, and poison effects for clawbugs, and perhaps a paralysis like effect for war tralls.

Maybe special abilities that require certain levels of intelligence to unlock, or scale with intelligence.
Kinda like battle disciplines with melee and pole weapons skills.

With current technology we might be able to take out the human species with a sufficiently sized asteroid, but that's beside the point.

Natural Mage helps mages (obviously), and Divinely Touched helps priests. Good Education is useful when deciphering magical scripts to learn spells, but that's about it. I think Strong Will might help to resist dumbfounding, but I'm not entirely certain.

Here.
Divinely Touched does not help priests particularly, it gives Lay on Hands, Natural Curing and Call Spirit.
You must be thinking of Pure Spirit from Av 4 and 5.

Xbox Live Arcade? PlayStation Network? DS? in General

The SDK itself is free, it is only the developer program which costs money. The SDK includes the iPhone sim, so he could at least see how feasible it is and how much work he would have to do to port it. If it isn't too much work it really would be very cool.

I think A1-3 + Nethergate would work best (resolution and lower requirements) and depending how file transfer works BoA (probably not the editor though).

You know LT, you really piss me off.
I can barely stand the fact that you are what people who don't know anyone else will think of when I tell them what country I come from.

Sometimes I just wish everybody would shut up, calm down and stop being absolute bastards with each other.

If only just for a little while.

To those who want vengeance I like to point out the story of the Hatfield-McCoy feud. Very few if any people can't say that their people were once a a powerful and ruthless empire.
Mine wasn't.
Australia has never been particularly powerful… or ruthless.

Not particularly an RPG, but Escape Velocity Nova is great for wasting hundreds of hours. There's even a windows version available. And the price is damn cheap for as much as you get out of it.
The first two, Escape Velocity and Override, were better.
Then again, you can download TCs of EV and EV:O for EV:N.

Rage:Eat the Path

Find the right way down through the maze, to the food, then find the exit. Push the exit button. If the food tastes awful, don't eat it, go back and try another way.

They want the same thing that you do, really, they want a path, just like you. You are in a maze in a maze, but which one counts? Your maze, their maze, my maze. Or are the mazes all the same, defined by the limits of their paths?

Existence is simple: find the food, push the button, hit the treadmill.

But sometimes it gets much harder. Sometimes the food makes you sick, or you can hear nearby feet racing you, urging you on. Sometimes the button only gets you landed right back in the beginning of the maze again, and the food won't satisfy.

There is only one path and that is the path that you take, but you can take more than one path.

Cross over the cell bars, find a new maze, make the maze from it's path, find the cell bars, cross over the bars, find a maze, make the maze from its path, eat the food, eat the path.
