I'm a bit of a Philistine when it comes to visual art (that is to say… I'm completely uncultured), but I do like it from a musical and literary sense.

Singer/lyricist:

For those who don't know, that's Roy Khan, the lead vocalist from Kamelot. He's pretty amazing.

Author:

And that's George R. R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire. Best books I've ever read.

Well I'm almost done with this one! I mainly picked it up because I haven't been reading anything in a while, and I happen to have these… heirlooms… on hand! Although I am getting quite a bit of sexual content and whimsical child-ness! That, and Mr. Anthony seems to like exclamation points! A lot!

I personally wonder, sticking nukes to asteroids, what would happen to said nukes when they reach the Earth's gravitational field. Usually this does some damage to stellar objects once they enter the atmosphere, correct?

Deathmatch Tournament -- Round Two, Part Two in General

Member # 7538

Match 1: Alorael vs. The Silent Assassin
Between name changes, a seemingly limitless supply of skribbane, and the power of talking in third person, Alorael pretty much had this made. However, on a fluke, one of TSA's previously set traps goes off as Alo is about to take his shot, sending a barrage of rocks falling from nowhere on top of him.
Winner: The Silent Assassin

Match 2: The Almighty Doer of Stuff vs. Arancaytar
ADoS smelled the bacon boi from miles away. But although fluffy kittens are no match for fluffy turtles, Aran also has the power of teh Internets way over the considerable graphic skills of ADoS. As ADoS is busy drawing what is surely Aran's demise, Aran simply baleets him.
Winner: Arancaytar

Match 3: Goldenking vs. Drakefyre
Goldenking stood little chance against Drakey. As Goldenking casts Aura of Flames, Drakey casts Divine Warrior. He then proceeds to use his wave blade to slice up Goldenking's golden gun, pizzashield, and drugs, before finally taking him out. Then, just to be sure, Drakey whacks Goldenking with the Encyclopedia Ermariana.
Winner: Drakefyre

Match 4: Ash Lael vs. Dintiradan
Dinti starts off with an elaborate scheme to see Ash slowly and painfully to his ultimate demise. Surprisingly, all goes according to plan, right up to the end, when Dinti has Ash right where he wants him. Ash is helpless, so Dinti takes the opportunity to describe his evil plans in full detail. However, it takes so long, the Creator comes to the rescue before the end of Dinti's monologue. Good triumphs once again, and Dinti vows to get them next time.
Winner: Ash Lael

Match 5: Nemesis vs. Emperor Tullegolar
"I've beaten him once, I can beat him again."

My Dainslaif companions fight Tully's slaves to a stalemate, and all allies are called off. Now it's my sword versus his slith spear, so he has the reach advantage. I can evade some strokes, but am wounded by others. In frustration, Tully insults my disadvantage. In doing so, he breaks the CoC and is banned.
Winner: Nemesis

Match 6: Zeviz vs. Stareye
Zeviz starts the battle by preparing to cast Nuke. Which Zeviz is preoccupied, Stareye creates a script which inflicts him with Tourette's Syndrome, which will allow him to make use of his admin powers. However, because he hasn't designed for BoA in a while, he runs into Avernumscript complications, causing the script to take longer than expected. Zeviz finishes casting Nuke before Stareye can complete the dreaded script.
Winner: Zeviz

Match 7: Student of Trinity vs. Salmon
SoT begins the battle with a couple of sharp one-liners, which remove Salmon's legs. He then begins work on the most deadly physics equation EVAR! However, Salmon is able to drag himself to where SoT is working and spam up his work. SoT manages to clean most of it off, but misses a spot. When he tries to use the equation, it backfires and causes him to never have been.
Winner: Salmon

Match 8: Jewels vs. Terror's Martyr
Jewels smiles at TM. This angers him. A lot. He immediately begins flaming. Jewels graciously thanks TM for the warm response. However, before TM can react, Imban locks the topic. TM is taken to the admins and banned, and Jewels writes another Blades walkthrough.
Winner: Jewels

EDIT:

set_flag(get_memory_cell(1),get_memory_cell(2),1);

kill_char(who_hit_me,3,0);
As you may or may not be able to tell, if I use this script, you can kill me, but you die too. In fact, you die first, from what I've seen. Luck doesn't apply. Two can cheat, ET. :P

That's all well and good, but Diki's right. ET's stuff is pretty much just an attack at various people's personae.

For the record, I do find it amusing, but it would be a lot better if they weren't just another way for ET to be openly hostile.

No. This thread is clearly about spam, which has no rights.

Discussion of animal rights redirects to this thread. But only if you think it's necessary. I'm pretty sure we had a long enough discussion about it, personally. Especially since all our complaining about either side isn't going to change a thing.

Female Child graphic in Blades of Avernum Editor

Member # 7538

I have a couple of basic (and I mean basic) edits of the original child graphic so that they have long hair and different colored clothing. They served their purpose when I used them, though if you're looking for a dress, well…

Anyway. I just uploaded them here and here.

If you want a different color for the clothing, changing that is easy enough with Photoshop or a similar program.

You might consider adding a dialog pic, too. I think there are a few little girl portraits in the sheet of Band Art Portraits I uploaded at the Blades Forge a while ago.

I hope you find these useful.

Now that you mention it, no. I've vowed never to eat at places like Jack in the Crack or Carl's again. Not even so much because of what I think might be in it, but because I've made the mistake of looking at the meat patties. It just looks… sickly. Plus there's that weird feeling in my stomach after eating there (which might be because of the sick amount of Mayo, come to think of it).

Hot dogs are alright. I'll eat them once in a while, though I'm still not positive what kinds of corpses I'm eating, whether they're bovine or… primate. :eek:

I always save an in-scenario copy when I enter one I haven't played yet, just to be safe. Can't trust these crazy designers these days. :P

On that note, I have been trying to figure out a way to temporarily reconfigure a party without permanently destroying it. The best I've got is obscenely complicated, and probably more effort than it's even worth, since I'm not likely to ever use it.

Alternatively, I've taken to using runes instead of portals. Comes in handy for something slightly less extravagant (although for that kind of script, I suspect you're looking for an attention-grabber anyway). An easy-ish way to make your own, if you wanted to, would be to use an existing door graphic as a base, then edit in a paint program from there.

Also, welcome to Spiderweb. You'll never escape with your sanity. (Bwahaha…)
