How the heck do you even get 20 Woodscraft? Cheating, perhaps?

Edit: Darn! I did not want the fourth page. Sorry.

I've done this two times (as Celt) and haven't encountered anything unusual at all. It's just plain odd.

What do you mean by somewhere along the way? Which PC slot is the character? Did ANYTHING happen that you noticed that was odd?

All right, there's the first one. GF4 shots like this coming soon... IMAGE(http://picasaweb.google.com/thefractalman/Screenshots/photo#5085965485370220898)
Curse the UBB!! Why can't I link this photo? Trying again...

Bah! I was afraid of this. Even if I did know how to link the photo, it doesn't show up as white on black. I wish the screenshot would retain the display formatting. Oh well. But if you do know how to do this, try launching games; I tried GF4 first in Southforge: pretty crazy, I wish I could post it.

To all OS X users:

If you want bedazzlement, try this. In System Preferences in the Accessibility field somewhere you can change the display so it displays as white on black. I at least know that you can do this in 10.4.8, which is what I have. I launched GF4 like this and was amazed. If I knew how to take screenshots, I would post one. Could someone tell me how?

Anyway, if you haven't seen this, check it out. It's very interesting.

This was made for dyslexic people right? I've heard that this can be easier for them to read.

A Perfect Forest for BoA has admirable cutscenes. That's always been a favorite scenario.

Edit: Oh dear. I was afraid of getting the fourth page. Sorry.

Edit 2: A few of the abilities in the older Avernum games were a tad unbalanced. Such as Divine Aid for example. Especially because it's usable once per day. That could be exploited to the maximum. I hope battle disciplines are a balanced new field. They sound very exciting!

I remember you (or someone) talking about odd game-saving problems. What exactly happens when you attempt to save your game in A1 or 2? I never had problems like that with my system nine.

It seems like everyone has been talking about their fathers lately. I would be a miracle if I got my dad into any sort of computer game except arcadey ones.

I had a color-related idea that was hideously misinterpreted about three weeks ago. I've always wanted interesting color variety. It does seem slightly hard to implement though.

How sad. I got the southern treasure. Ah well. I've always had a strange love of teaser areas. They give a nice, mysterious atmosphere to the game. Thanks for the help.

Using a script cheat in G1, I created the true death ornk: ÜberOrnkie was his name. He was about level 50 or so. I forgot. He ate all in just one bite!!!

I was way bored, so I decided to do crazy, stupid things like that. Ah well.

What are the effects in all the other games, for that matter? And why would you want to add a typo? That seems like a fairly foolish manner of getting attention.

How did they die? Spontaneously, or by damage? I certainly don't remember death being part of the endgame. Of course, I have been known to forget minor details on occasion.

Crypt Under Galag-Trav in Nethergate
Warrior
Member # 8872

In the general SW area, there is a secret crypt area with some barriers which I dispelled, the tables with skulls and bones, plus the central area with an encounter that drains experience that I can't get past. This is my second time playing through as Celts. I never figured out if you can get in there. Or is it just another teaser area for Celts? I remember, as Romans, you could get through with no encounter, but there was nothing there.

All help, as usual, is appreciated.

I think I would like it if there was ever something like fatigue that forced you to rest. So that for once, you would need to buy rooms in the inn or have food. Or something that would require you to eat.

I don't know. Maybe I'm crazy...

Killing Gwyar (or whatever the lead crone in hagfen is named) in Nethergate
Warrior
Member # 8872

Since I am playing Celts and I already did the Selkie pelts, I decided to go back with Key V to open some boxes and kill the witches. Gwyar dropped yet another undiscovered Archdruid's Robe! I want to keep it, but I need to know if killing the people in Hagfen marks you as a murderer because I still want full access to everything and no hostilites. Keep in mind that I haven't even done Goagh-Nar yet because I wanted all the Sylak keys first.
