Just looking over the Avernum 3 section, a interesting topic there about "Cheating?":

http://www.ironycentral.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=11;t=002478

Money seems to be the main reson for cheating, therefor, my question:

Is there some way to create a 'Bank' that you can deposit and take out money (gold)????

Just wondering......... James

Should be. You could even make a bank of sorts in BoE, although you could only deposit amounts set by the scenario designer (like, say, 1000 gold at a time). Also, it would only be possible for banked money to be carried between scenarios by giving the party items to sell (which, obviously, take up valuable inventory space).

Thanks for information.

There was a game for the Commodore 64 called Legacy of the Ancients that had a bank where you can deposit and take out gold. You could also have robbed the place -- if you were strong enought that is. :D

Just wondering if BOA scripts could be created to perform these actions............bye

You probably could be able to make a bank, and have an option to rob it. Infact, you can probably do that with BoE.

Someone once made a series of nodes which you could insert into a BoE scenario to create this effect. You could have different places for the bank and if you robbed it you would be attacked by guards.

I've made a bank in one of my too-bad-to-be-released scenarios, but it only converted gold to dM's, (bills).

I had 5's, 25's, 50's, 100's, and 1000's. And they had type flags, too, so someone might be able, with coordination, to carry them to another scenario, and get more of the same type there.

You can never frighten me,

Type flags after 100 are removed when the party leaves the scenario.
