If Jeff were to make "Blades of Geneforge", what would you want in it? And what would you want it to be called?

Tidied up.
Uhhh, he hasn't said he's going to use zombies. He said he was considering using crazed/mind-controlled villagers. And undead, in Avernum, can mean shades and ghosts, too, not just zombies.

Avernum is a remake of Exile. There's also Blades of Avernum and Exile, which are both very good. You'll probably want to try Geneforge too.

Most Drakons aren't greedy for anything other than power, with the notable exception of Orios Blaze. If you expand it to Drayks, there's also that weird, old, Drayk, who lived near Darian, who would trade you canisters and equiqment, in exchange for part of your life force.

As soon as a born idiot touchs a keyboard, he instinctively knows how to type Leet like everyone else knows how to type real words.

I hate people who use Leet and/or phrases like "LOL".

Leet is for idiots who can't figure out how to put letters together to form coherent sentences.

Quite possibly, yes. Though I lean toward me seeing my own "personal" monster. My deepest, darkest nightmare. It involves tentacles, and lots of water.

Fortunately, at the moment, it's a product of the lunatic fringe. In a couple of years though, who knows? And yes, I'm from the US.

I slap idiots and/or bullies in public (well, school anyway) all the time. Believe me, it makes your day. Except for the beatings, suspensions, and threats of lawsuits, of course.

1. You should have slapped him. Then clawed his eyes. Then go for his vocal cords, so he can't talk and spread his hateful lies. Though, seriously, let's say we did nuke the Middle East. How would that make us any different from them? Hell, we would be even worse, because we would kill far more people, we would involve many non-hostile countrys (through direct damage and fallout), and we could possibly touch off World War Three, incite riots and rebellion, and/or start a nuclear war.

2. It is very true that 9-11 is not the only premediated attack. Even my country, the US, isn't totally free of blame. Think about Hiroshima. You could consider that a terrorist attack far worse than 9-11. Though you would need a very skewed perception of reality.

I had a very disturbing dream last night. I was walking through school, and everyone that I walked by stopped doing whatever they were doing, and stared at me. In a creepy sort of way. Then, I opened a door, and started screaming. I could never remember what's behind the door.

Still not very good. You would have to hear how the entire saga turns out, and it would interfere with the main storyline.
A better idea is to make "Blades of Geneforge". You could all make scenarios with your ideas, and it wouldn't screw with the storyline.

Also, what survivors? I'm pretty sure they all were killed when the Shapers came in.

Genoharadan, for my Agents. It's an assasin guild in KOTOR. Usually, "God" for my Shapers. Just struck me as appropriate, with all the creating of he does. I don't play a Guardian that much, but usually, Coyote, a refrence to a trilogy of SF books by Allen Steele.

The problems of playing as Danette are:
1. You would be forced to play as a Shaper.
2. You would have to be a Loyalist.
3. Nothing to fight. The island isn't overrun by rogues.
4. If you played GF1, you probably have a pretty good idea of what happened, therefore, no new suprises.
5. You would start out very powerful.
6. There's the part about you dying...
7. Can't choose your own name.
8. No Rothgroths, Gazers, and other, newer creations.
9. You would start out as the Big Cheese. The boss, for those of you unfamiliar with English.
10. No "canister finding" element. They would all just be in a big lab.
11. Drayks are legal creations.
12. You would have to play as a woman.
13. The missions would probably end up as, fetch x of this, fetch y of that.
14. Lots of people know Sucia Island like the back of their hand.

In the trailer, you see a gigantic structure opening up like a flower. What do you think it is? A new Forerunner artifact? A Halo-esque installation, complete with Flood?
Also, where do you think the Chief was? Earth? Some disttant planet?

Most of my dreams (excluding the kraken one and a couple of others) would violate the COC in about 10 different ways. I hate adolescence.

Learned Darian Speculation in Geneforge Series
Warrior
Member # 7002

I really can't figure out how Darian isn't dead. Think about it. In GF1 she lived alone with only a life-eating drayk for company. In GF2, she had her own little sanctuary. However, it seems that GF3 is based on the Loyalist ending, so why wasn't she killed in the attack? The Council surely would've killed her if they had met her. In GF3, it seems like a miracle that she's not dead. She's wandering around a dangerous research facility, populated by pylons, Rothgroths, and other nasty critters. If you chose to kill her however, you see that she has less than 100 HP.

That reminds me of a dream where I dreamed that I was in school, taking a test, and I had only done five out of twenty problems. The teacher called out that there was five minutes left. Next thing I know the teachers shaking me awake, telling me to "get on it", because there was only three minutes left.

I dreamed I was trapped underwater with a kraken. Do nightmares count as dreams?

EDIT: A kraken is a mythical beast resembling a squid. Legends say that they're about as big as an island.
