THE DICIDULITES ARE THE ILLITHIDS

TOMORROW BELONGS TO ECHOES

---

...let me guess. Dicidulites are also immortal (or extremely long-lived), nearly indestructible, and capable of creating and destroying worlds at a whim?

Races of super beings are annoying.

Plah - Lies. My legitimate party has butchered everything it has encountered in the scenario with ease.

Although having an excuse for fighting (as Gargoyle's scenario seems to have) is better than having no excuse for it that I can find. (as Land of the Damned has)

Eh, off-topic discussion is fun.

Actually, I have a feeling that Plah's comment was rather accurate - this, much like Land of the Damned, is probably going to be a "super-hard" scenario that will turn out to be stupid and rather easy, too. :/

Um... wtf? I've never HEARD of it...

You're talking about BoE, right?

Whoops, on second thought, I actually have it in my scenario folder. I suppose I should probably beat it with my legitimate party now.

seeing Blade's overpowered weapon and armour... in Blades of Avernum

In Blades of Exile, the explosion on space node hitting a friendly is indeed disastrous, as it hostiles the town.

This was probably changed for Avernum.

The explosion node turns friendly monsters hostile. See Doom Moon II for painful proof.

Actually, that +10 area bonus is... enough to make me NOT want the weapon. It does very little unless you're fighting goblins, and has the risk of turning friendly creatures against you.

Um, Alcritas made Falling Stars.

And for what it's worth, Andres Gonzales's first scenario was Medium-level.

Yet another question on items in Blades of Avernum

Actually, if this was implemented, much like items with special classes now (the special class is merely removed upon their exit from the scenario) it would be very easy just to strip out the description text.

An antimagic shield isn't very useful against hot strike of weapon of choice to die.

Okay. 30 strikes then to finish it.

Using TM's A3 data, I get 12 attacks per round.

Hence it dies in 3 rounds.

How about the ability to rob shop keepers? in Blades of Avernum

Err, he's saying that you're capable of using stuff that WILL be provided to implement it into your own scenarios if you choose to do so.

Exile seems to assume that the party fights for good and nothing else. :P

I fear for this thread's life, for it likely shall not have much left. :P

Really, if you're making a sequel, you should just assume that the party successfully completed the previous scenario.

I know this. I just haven't had any particular reason to play them.

Concerning Custom Graphics and Macs... in Blades of Avernum

Unless you go out of your way to mung a document that contains no encoding whatsoever, it's pretty hard to mung .txt. :P

Seriously, though, while I understand it's not an option for BoA, a few Mac scenarios designers ship their graphics in .gif form.

Well, I'll end up playing all of them - having never played any of the Avernum games, it should help. :P
