I have to pick Escape velocity override. For some reason flying a space ship, visiting alien worlds, and basically being a free spirit appeal to me.

My second choice is not purely an RPG I have to say MYST based on the fact their the books that lead to other realities. In the game you work for some who writes these books. I would try to learn how to write one of these books.

Revised political-geneforge sympathies poll in Geneforge 4: Rebellion

Well in the part of rebellion led by the Drakons its not much better if at all. The drakons treat anyone who i no t a drakon be he human, servile, drayk, or eyebeast. They are all the same to a drakon, dirt. The shapers are cruel and arrogant but so are the drakons. The human rebellion is all but lost. The drakons grow more arrogant and mentally unstable with each generation. The shaper in that aspect are far more stable. To me the heart of the rebellion (drakons) are just as bad if not worse then the shapers. Sure you can argue how noble the human/servile rebellion how just they are, but they have been mostly destroyed no matter what story line you picked.

Only hell is that old as far as the gods they could be a thousand or two thousand years older. However I will point out I am not the one who made the time line everything just more sort of fell into place.

----------near the town of Halberth------------
Night had just fallen and a priest points at Vertan and says "There is the demon. Vertan slams his fist against the ground with all his might knocking everyone nearby to the ground. Vertan runs off a short distance and checks his sword "Still can't pull it out but curious it budged" Just then the knights, who were quick to react come crashing around him breaking his train of thought. The rest of the army follows but a fog comes in and some yells a blood curdling scream before being silenced.
----------Pantheon at Kirkwood--------------
A woman who looked very ill and was burning a high fever walked into the temple. She was also carrying a strange lantern. Her movements weren't quite right even for someone so ill but everyone around here assumed she wish to come seeks the help of the gods to cure her like so many others. However she approaches an alter in a long for gotten corner not know to many, the alter of Demons, she then pulled an obsidian black orb out of a her pocket and placed it on the alter.Then she starts faintly muttering something in a unknown language the orb levitates over the alter for a brief second then and comes to rest. The woman muttering the spell collapses to the floor dead. Briefly a dark figure leaps from the lantern to the alter and back to the later. A couple of seconds later the candle winks out.
-------Several miles away-----------
Xephel "That was close I knew Geltor's candle system would have been unstable but I didn't predict the demon orb being a booby trap going off. Who ever booby trapped it planned for it to go off during the battle but Geltor must have since something wrong with it. Explains why he didn't use it. At least its fixed now. Also the alter seemed drained of power so The God slayer has been chosen thats a relief" The Demon lord pulls out a parchment and checks of a few things. Then transforms into a bird he killed recently and flys off.
--------In the Jungles somewhere in south---------
A Coutal and his band of demons arrives in a primitive tribal village of some size. The shaman rushes out to great them and shows them to the alter. The shaman then orders some slaves be brought to the alter. When the slaves arrive the shaman, with the help of some aids, ties the slaves to the alter. The shaman mutters a brief incantation and the alter and slaves catch on fire. The fire burns for a few seconds before they arch of to Coutal and pour into him. After the ritual the essence of the slaves have been poured into the demons. The shaman then used magic to tell the shamans in other like minded villages to prepare for war, the had demons to feed.
-----------------OCC---------------------------
Note that Vertan doesn't know any magic yet.
The ill women was under control by Xephel via magic and the spell is very taxing on the victim and can only live for a few hours while under the spell.

Hope this is satisfactory

I went to a public school it was magnet school (sorta of like a gifted program)and I was one of 3 white people of a graduating class of roughly 300 students. It was a good school and I had lots of robotics team. Don't really have any complaints about my school.

Fantastical Thoughts On RPG Game Mechanics in Avernum 4

Member # 7298

Their are ways to do what you want without drastically changing the game mechanics. You could for example make magic healing harder to do and more expensive. You could already make opponents hit harder that die easier. You can what you mention without a massive reworking of the game mechanics. If you where to try this I wouldn't it with a spiderweb game. The game mechanics are so fundamentally different that it requires its own game. Lastly the games I have player where the mechanics come close to what your talking about were good but the fact if a character died you lost them forever. After restarting a game 50 billion times it will old real fast because you

Fantastical Thoughts On RPG Game Mechanics in Avernum 4

I have played some games where technically you could heal or cure. It just was a lot harder and the enemy could easily kill one of your characters if you not careful. It used different mechanics to limit healing and stuff. While I do like the game in question the one thing I dislike about it was the enemy's ability to kill one of your units and causing you to start over. One example is I have defeated all the enemy's on the level and I just have one thing left to do and a enemy comes quite literally out of nowhere and kills my main character (said character was of decent stats in context my progress in the game and was full health) causing me to lose the game.

Now consider they technically could just cast a healing spell or down a potion and get all better the game mechanics just made it a bit harder too; what your posing would limit that even more so. I'm not saying you couldn't get it too work however you need to design game engine with that in mind and not just slap the onto an existing one. The biggest downside you propose is having to restart the game 50 billion times is a tad bit annoying. So unless the game had some other qualities that made it incredibly good I doubt I would play it.

What you said sounds good in theory and might be possible to make a good game with the game mechanics you mentioned, but would be very hard to get it right. Personally I play rpgs and read medieval fantasy because to escape reality. I don't want to be reminded of it and I like to think a large number of people who play RPGs agree. If you go on reality its most likely your character gets killed or maimed horribly in their first battle putting them in bed for the rest of their life if not 6 ft under. You need to find the right balance of reality vs fantasy. I personally I have no problem if reality gets skimped a little bit.

Well the trakovite ending clearly stated that they needed serviles for their mechanicals skills. Also arrogant life crafters generally consider mechanics beneath them. The first guy you can buy spells from at south forge commented that it is useful to have underlings who were skilled in that area. Since arrogant life crafters think that way it wouldn't be to far of a stretch to think Drakons think the same way. This doesn't mean drakons don't have the hand to eye coordination to do such things it just mean most consider any activity unrelated shaping or fighting is beneath them. Pride goes before a fall.

Lest I be misunderstood, I don't think technology is inherently either good or evil. I agree it is what we do with it that is all important. I also think that technology has very little to do with what really makes life worth living as a human being, though I can readily see how debatable that point would be to many. I would also argue that the human being truly began losing its soul 1000 years ago with the invention of the clock.

As I stated earlier, the concern now is that our technological evolution is far outpacing our own social and spiritual evolution as humans, and that is a recipe for disaster without a significant shift in our thinking in this century.

-S-

Technology won't automatically make you better then who doesn't have technology on that will agree. However technology if used right can help enhance and train certain abilities and characteristics. For example give a surgeon a new piece of technology designed to help him treat patients and you enhance his abilities to heal. The same is not true if you give that same technology to someone off the street. Light bulbs make it easier to study at night and so on.

Every nation has its time and its time will past. America will one day fall and another will come to power and have its vengeance if it so chooses. Then it if follows the pattern it will piss off a large number of people and its fall will come and the cycle continues. The question is how do we break the cycle? 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.

I'm not saying what US is doing in Iraq is right. I just think the current political situation is better then one that could reduce the human population to 10,000. Not too say it doesn't have problems, just stop being pessimistic and look on the brights side everyone once in a while. Also blaming America for all the worlds problems no matter how justified won't solve anything. Solving problems takes more then passing blame around. Do you want to solve a problem or do you want something to rant about.
