Both versions are now available at the database. The cmg works fine for me, but I made a new archive just to be on the safe side.

BoA is already a universal binary. Jeff claims he has never noticed problems running the Avernum trilogy using Rosetta, even though many of us have mentioned it, so universal versions of A1-3 are doubtful.

Why do you say this? The Avernum trilogy sold quite well (and still do), and they were remakes of "dead" titles.

I spend a lot of time here and at Shadow Vale. I drop in at Polaris and the Lyceum a couple of times a week. I visit Desperance once in a blue moon. I think I have 2 posts over there.

Agreed. I can't accurately vote with these choices, so I won't. I really like the graphics and interface of Nethergate and the Avernum trilogy, but Exile's combat is unparalleled in awesomeness As for spells, I think a fusion of Ethe Exile system with the Nethergate system would rock.

Pardon the double-post, but TM has released the aforementioned scenario, named Settlers. You can get it here.

It's a simple database. I'm not going to go in-depth about each scenario. Anyway, recommended levels are shown in the scenario selection screen in BoA itself, and you can use the High Level Party Maker to create a party of any level.

I finally got around to extracting the music. Resource-extraction from 16-bit apps isn't all that easy. Anyway. the music from every Spiderweb game can be found here now.

In the temple of the most divine Gorgantha, High Priest Niorsim prepared for the morning services. The altar had been scrubbed clean after the previous day's services. Gorganthas liked His sacrifices, but worship rituals also involved cleanliness. Niorsim checked to make sure everything was in place one last time before striking the enormous gong that called the people to worship. The doors to the temple swung wide, and the devout filed in. Once they had all been seated, two underpriests came in through a side entrance, carrying an unconscious prisoner. The man was laid on the altar, and Niorsim placed several hot coals from a nearby brazier on the man's chest. He awoke immediately and began to scream and thrash abot. The two underpriests held has arms down as Niorsim began the holy chant. "Almighty Gorganthas, receive the heart of this unbeliever as a token of our great love for Thee. In THy name we will crush all those who do not follow Thy ways!"

There was a resounding "Amen" from the devout.

At that instant, Niorsim pulled out the ceremonial knife and made an incsion in the middle of the coals. He then plunged his hand into the man's still-living body, enduring the terrible heat, and yanked out the pulsating heart. A terrible gurlgling scream came out of the prisoner's mouth and abruptly died. Niorsim then threw the heart into the brazier. The underpriests carried the dead body away as the heart blackened and smoldered in the hot coals. Another unbeliever had been purged from the world.

Gorganthas reveled in the ceremony. At the moment of the man's death, his life force flowed into the God. A deity does not actually need more life or vitality, but Gorganthas loved the feeling it gave Him. Besides, anyone who did not worship Him as the greatest power in the world did not deserve to live.

I do a double-take every time i realize that I'm talking to someone who was born in the 90s. I help out with my church's youth group, and after the current high school seniors graduate, all of the kids will be children of the 90s. That makes me feel incredibly old. :P
