If you're using any third-party editors, figure out which ones and ask their makers to disable that silliness.

Otherwise, uh, you must have edited the data files yourself. (Or someone at your computer did.)

See, I was talking with Thuryl about this after I did mine (of which 90% of my playlist was Rhapsody of Fire albums - I've got a lot more stuff than that, but it was my playlist when I opened up Winamp, so I went with it)...

A lot of them make really terrible answers. Like this one, where your favorite thing to do is apparently be tortured and escape after having your friend tortured to death in front of you. :P

Uh, to answer the original poster's question, you'd copy Geneforge 4 to another computer in the same way you'd copy any file to another computer. :P

Ramu's question is an explicit yes, although even if it was a no, only IP droids would suggest you comply.

If "Kitten" took out those three creatures simultaneously single-handedly, then your DM isn't using them correctly.
Perhaps... They were kinda were focusing more on the other characters than they probly should have been. Though, come to think of it, only Kitten and Hide(not pronounced how it looks) were the only ones who took any damage. Probly cause the Radiant Dragon and the other guy didn't do that much other than pull Hide out of the fight when he was getting creamed by just one opponent.

But seriously though, Improved Power Attack combined with Rage, Frenzy, and Kitten's high pluses to hit, high strength, & use of a full-blade make for a very deadly combination

What Drew really means to say is that unless Kitten killed the Pit Fiend before it got any actions, it should probably have just begun using its spell-like ability of Blasphemy every round, which would have effectively killed all of the non-Evil members of the party with no save - like Kitten, who at level 17 would have been unable to act ever again as long as it kept using Blasphemy, as well as losing 2d6 points of Strength every round. Failing that, if most of the party was evil, it could have used Mass Hold Monster every turn, forcing a DC 27 Will save on practically the entire party versus effective death.

Meanwhile, the Balor should begin using Implosion, forcing a DC 27 Fort save versus death (as not a death effect, so Death Ward doesn't stop this!) on the party's spellcasters. Alternatively, if Kitten DID drop the Pit Fiend in one round, the Balor could also have started in with the Blasphemies.

And the Solar? A Solar is a 20th-level Cleric with totally awesome other abilities for practically free. If it can't figure out how to kill you in a few seconds, it should just Gate in someone who does - like another Solar.

Oh geez. See, right now, I only have like 50 songs on my playlist at all...

This song will be playing when I meet the love of my life:
Ra Ra Rasputin by ABBA. Totally the most appropriate song on the playlist for this question, even if I'm not into guys.

Right now, I feel:
Lamento Eroico by Rhapsody of Fire. Uh... sure. :P

What makes me happy is:
When Demons Awake by Rhapsody of Fire. Uh... yeah, I'll have to say no. :P

My love of life was inspired by the song:
Gargoyles, Angels of Darkness by Rhapsody of Fire. Heroic triumphs over evil are inspiring, I suppose...

My message to the world has always been:
Guardiani del Destino by Rhapsody of Fire. Um... you should set off on a heroic journey too!

Next time I'm in front of a crowd, I'll say:
Beyond the Gate of Infinity by Rhapsody of Fire. I hate this song, so it'll pass without real comment.

My friends see me as:
Forest of Unicorns by Rhapsody of Fire. Darn it, I said I wasn't gay with the first question.

When I'm drunk I say:
Sacred Power of Raging Winds by Rhapsody of Fire. I guess gibbering randomly is something to do when drunk, and that's how the song starts, but...

My alter-ego is:
The Last Angels' Call by Rhapsody of Fire. Uh, I don't really think MOST songs would be appropriate answers.

My deepest secret is:
Komm, Susser Tod from Neon Genesis Evangelion. *is an emo kid*

My day will be like:
Dust in the Wind by Kansas. Crap. Better go make out my will.

When I'm in the shower, I sing:
The Village of Dwarves by Rhapsody of Fire. Uh... uh... yeah, I'll pass on that.

My favorite thing to do is:
Epicus Furor by Rhapsody of Fire. Go totally non-fitting answers.

My parents are like the song:
Shadows of Death by Rhapsody of Fire. See above.

My ultimate song for dancing is:
Flames of Revenge by Rhapsody of Fire. Clearly they mean, uh, *dancing*, as the Orz would say.

At my wedding they'll play:
Lord of the Thunder by Rhapsody of Fire. I... hope not.

The story of my life is:
Emerald Sword by Rhapsody of Fire. Cool, I get a magic sword?

My innermost desire is:
Symphony of Enchanted Lands by Rhapsody of Fire. Um... not really appropriate.

To cheer myself up I sing:
Miko Miko Nurse by Ruzarin Kashiwagi. I'd fall over laughing at any guy who tried singing it, including myself. Which, uh, I guess would cheer me up?

At my funeral they'll play:
Tears of a Dying Angel by Rhapsody of Fire. The title is more appropriate than the song.

Huh. They usually don't remove things. The PRC pack works fine for me, by the way.

Um, the main reason a Dragon Shaped Druid is unstoppable is that Dragon Shape gives you a MASSIVE bonus to Natural Armor, which means no one in the world can hit you.

—Alorael, who objects to having a shaper class that is essentially unable to do anything. It's really just an excuse to bring creations into the fray. Besides, Geneforge doesn't seem to have any shapers who don't throw magic around too.
Now there's an idea: how about the Shaper as a spellcaster prestige class that sacrifices a few levels of spellcasting progression for the ability to Shape?

You might want to look at animal-companion-focused druid/ranger PrCs like the Beastmaster for inspiration.

Sacrificing spellcasting for, well, anything is usually a pretty terrible trade. It'd have to be reaaaaally compelling, and even then it's a bit dodgy to give up more than a level or two at most.

Yeah, this belongs on the WotC boards.

(EDIT: After some thinking, I've decided to reopen this. You probably won't get real constructive criticism here, though.)

I play Neverwinter Nights a bunch - used to play it more, but haven't for a while - and, um...

No, I don't really know a good place for strategy discussions for it, but... Red Dragon Disciple is pretty bad for actual sorcerors, since its benefit is basically nothing compared to the 10 levels of spellcasting you're missing. It's usually fighter-types who want to use Devastating Critical that take that class.

Yes, some domains are particularly better. No, I don't remember which ones. Sorry. :P

By the way, the appropriate form for that - if there can be said to be such a thing - is P.S., then P.P.S., then P.P.P.S., etc.

You want a post-postscript, not a postscript-script.

I found Exile 1 and 2 on a demo CD and hated them and never thought of Spiderweb again.

Then I got Blades of Exile somehow and found out about the Arena. I've been stuck here since.

Please don't talk about cracks on the boards. You can very well be banned for it.

(Sure, cracking a game you own is a bit of a moral grey area, even if it's still frequently illegal, but Jeff can verify the person in question actually owns the game, whereas you can't.)

You left out the horrible taste. Alternatively, it's also cold. Coffee is nice and warm and makes me sleepy.

Uh, have you tried playing it in a DVD player (or CD, apparently) as the audio DVD it is? If you're wondering why the music doesn't show up in Explorer, it's because music tracks aren't data tracks, and you need to use CD ripping software if you want to convert them to mp3s and such.

I almost never drink carbonated beverages, although I'll occasionally drink a select few - for me, though, it's mostly milk, iced tea, or fruit juice.

I am, sadly, reliant on energy drinks to get me through crunch weeks at school - my body is unnaturally tolerant to caffeine, and while coffee does nothing but make me more tired, whatever's in energy drinks manages to keep me going for a little while.

That is hardly a common trait to all religions. If you wanted to call me out on my statement not applying to the Christian conception of God, you could easily have just called it at the "Why would God care?" part.
