Do you think putting in lions and tigers would be kind of good in A3 do you agree?
And as it continues what about putting croks?

No, on the grounds that:
A3 is already completed, and it would be more hassle than it's worth to put such creatures in.There really wouldn't be any purpose to having them in there. A3 already has goblin, wolves, worgs, and a few other wild animals. Essentially, the position has already been filled.It mildly clashes with the story, which is that most dangerous animals have already been eradicated.They would only be a distraction from the story.Besides, you slay enough beasties in this. You don't need to randomly add more to the mix.

Hm... those sound more useful for BoA scenarios set in remote areas of Ermarian, like the largely-undefined Vantanas.

There were tigers in Canopy, if I remember correctly.

But there's plenty of giant reptiles already in existence; crocodiles just aren't necessary. Besides, finding a group of them wandering about isn't very realistic and they would probably be used that way.

Would Dikiyoba say this if the question was about dinosaurs instead of crocodiles? It would be tempting, but the answer would still be no.

Yes. Also, their attacks did fire damage for some reason.

A4 had crocolisks.

Sorry, but dinosaurs in a fantasy setting are not something I enjoy. That, and my instinctive dislike of any creature that has a Swallow Whole ability.

The tigers in Canopy are capable of speech, and you're worried about fire damage? :)

What is a crocolisk? Just a different kind of basilisk, or was it more like a crocodile?

That what Dikiyoba said. Dikiyoba said no to the crocodiles and then no to dinosaurs.

I don't really care what kind of creature I'm up against. I can say with absolute confidence that my BoE or BoA party can beat it to death with their rolling pins from my own homebrew HLPM.

Sorry, Diki, that post was poorly written. I was disagreeing with your statement that dinosaurs in a fantasy setting would be tempting in the least.

The crocolisk is a relative of the basilisk? Come to think of it, I don't recall ever getting hit by one in A4. Does it freeze you too?

So, um, Vaarsuvius, you don't happend to have any of those really nifty spells ready right now? Like, say, "Hold Half-Orc" for example?

I'm all for lions and tigers in future Avernum games as long as they serve tea and scones and do lime damage.

I'd say "felig", but that sounds altogether too much like Bud Selig for comfort.

There are tigers in the Avernum series. They are immune to magic, smoke a lot, and keep cats as pets.

If big felines exist in A3 why aren't they all over the place?

But you don't have strange obsession with dinosaurs. I was just making sure I wasn't biased against crocodiles somehow.

Well, because Rakshasi are always rare and the nephilim have been mostly rounded up and dumped in Avernum.

Although since Dikiyoba plays A3 with nephilim in the party, "big felines" technically do go all over the place. :P

If big felines exist on Earth, why aren't they all over the place?

—Alorael, who certainly thinks lions and tigers and bears count as big. Bears aren't felines for most values of feline, but the other two are.

Big felines have been on earth up until the first world war cause people invented nasty weapons, guns but in A3 there is no confirmation of the dissemination of the felines.
Explain.

You think that the people of A3 don't have nasty weapons? Just look at the Golems, Dervishes, Wizards, Demons, and Undead that can be created, hired, or trained.
