If you simply kill the rouges and move on, both stay with you.

The same strategies apply. Get a few Artilas, then get some Vlish.

A great addition to G4 would be a little subtle. When you commit a crime, everyone in the area, even those who are on your side, turn hostile. For example, if you're playing as an Awakened in G2, there's a spy outside the gates. However, if you commit a crime, he runs at you like any other idiot. It doesn't make any sense for the entire area to go hostile.
Appearances must be preserved.

But you have to kill him. He acts like any other idiot, even though he's on your side.

Edit: A good idea, though it might be a little tricky, would be to have every character have a "value" depending on your faction.
Here's an "example chart":
1- Will attack on sight; will attack you if you attack them
2- Will attack if you violate any law in area; will attack you if you attack them
3- Will attack you if A.The town's hostile, and B. They see you. Otherwise they'll stay out of the way.
4- Will stay out of the way, unless you attack them.
5- Will fight with you unless you attack them.

Yes, it's flawed, but it would be better than the current system (the entire area goes hostile).

And the values would change, of course, depending on factions and the like.

Nope. He'll run at the thing, wearing a McDonalds uniform, shouting "Wait, wait, you forgot your change!" and get hit on the leg by an exploding chair, thus sending him into a deadly tumble. The tumble will knock out a few SpidWebbers, but will also herald the return of Stughalf.

This is all pure speculation, you realise...

I bow to your superior speculating abilities.

How about this... you go through all the trouble of raising a fyora to say, level 25 or 30, and he goes through a metamorphasis like a catapillar and becomes a charged fyora. All the more reason to keep old creations around. Make it level dependant, not some silly mini game of Dr Mario trying to get the right genes lined up.

Take a Beta or an Alpha to say, level 45 or so and they would become a Gamma.

A vlish would become a submission Vlish or perhaps one of those types of Vlish that heal others, a real asset to a shaper.

Good God no! That would turn Geneforge into Pokemon!

Generally, you really should avoid pissing off the people in the towns.

1. Leave when he tells you too.
2. Even if you had killed Diwanya by normal means, the town would have become hostile, forcing you to kill them all.
3. Don't set off the traps.

A great addition to G4 would be a little subtle. When you commit a crime, everyone in the area, even those who are on your side, turn hostile. For example, if you're playing as an Awakened in G2, there's a spy outside the gates. However, if you commit a crime, he runs at you like any other idiot.

As a stout two-month member of Polaris, I am of course overjoyed.
I'll miss two things though:
1. My title. I liked "Waiting For A Ship".
2. Looking at the Top Ten Overall Posters list and seeing my name in third (With 72 posts since around two weeks ago, when the boards went down).

What's the best avernum? in The Avernum Trilogy

Member # 7002

The first (and last) BoA scenario I downloaded was Bahssikava. My parents, who are stout Quakers, reluctantly allowed me to download it after seeing the mature label. However, after seeing the slaughtered soldiers around every corner, they made me delete BoA and Bahssikava. I only got far enough into it to tell it was good.

I prefer A4, but the general concensus over here seems to be A2. BoA is great, though there are only a few of the near-Spiderweb quality scenarios. Bahssikava, for example.

It's just higly improbable. At some point in time and space, assuming that time and space are infinite, someone will have to eat their entire body.

Logically, anything is possible. It may just be extremely improbable, or it will take a very, very long time.

I kinda meant we could wreck the world in a more or less biblical fasion.

The Seven Vials- Bio warfare. I'm pretty sure if "something" happened, we could unleash plagues that would make The Black Death look like the flu,

Wormwood- Scorching the earth and poisoning the land and water? Sounds nuclear.
