I was wandering what was the most interesting things (in a strange way) that you have ever done in G1-3. Mine is probably a common one, I destroyed the Awakened town (I was an Obeyer) with only a group of ornks.

I turned my graphics around in G1 and destroyed every living thing as a fyora. In G3, I somehow inverted my character's robe color. My stunt in #3, as a result of this, was to call myself The Unbound One and proceeed to obliterate every Shaper I met.

Heh. That's pretty fun. It's also fun to have your fyora kill your character right after you use the Geneforge, but this doesn't work for everyone.

I once tried to change the Ornk created by the party into a battle mage that cast Diamond Spray. I did that successfully, but imagine my surprise when I walked into a rural area and found a bunch of mages milling around, mooing, and eating grass.

I think my most "interesting" stunts were actually planned for by the game designer, so they probably don't qualify. The fun for me comes in picturing a flesh-and-blood human being actually pulling this stuff off.

My personal favorite was beating the GF3 Shaper testing grounds with nothing but roamers - which I did by skedaddling when the enemies appeared, running back to the regen pools while my roamers concentrated on one enemy at a time, then running back with newly-created roamers to carry on the fight. I pictured the Shapers awarding me the "Supreme Order of Chateau Generalship" - or at least a commander's coin with the inspiring motto: "A true shaper knows when to lead from behind. And we mean, like, WAY, WAY behind."

But I think that's what you're supposed to do. (And it's probably been discussed when I wasn't lurking here.)

I think I've done one fairly noteworthy one.
GF2, I wanted to reach my high point in power before joining any faction (So I could make a save and get all endings). So, I needed to conquer Gazak-Uss. So, what I did, was, (with a shaper with 6 creations) Snuck my way through all of Benerii-Uss Getting every crystal piece. The problem was, I could not kill ANYONE with a name, or clear ANY of the areas, or I would p/o the takers. (I think the hardest part was getting the piece in the labs without Salgurdar noticing.)

Did you read the little tag that says "base for all ornk imports?"

Yes, but it turns out that the Ornk I changed also is the Ornk that you see just wandering around.

Well, so long as your character wasn't wanting food at the time it would be okay.

Ofcourse, as soon as you tried making ornk dishes, I guess it would start hurting.

That's what Sarasaphilia just said. "Base for all ornk imports" means it will affect all ornks. That said, all you'd have to do is find all the places in the script where that ornk is imported and put the original stats in for them. It'd be tedious, but workable if you knew what you were doing.

Clarification. I meant that the Ornk that your character can create is the same one that wanders outside. I had already made sure to modify everything that imported Ornk so it worked normally.

You're right, my bad. But then where is the "friendly Ornk" type used?

Wherever they may be, Dikiyoba thinks we must keep them from interbreeding with the intelligent ornks, because from there it's only a short step to learning how to talk, growing to enormous size, and flirting with everyone they meet.

I must say Diki, that would be terrifying. GIFTO?

I like gray-scaling the guardians. It just looks cool. Sometimes I draw on the monsters and add mustaches and whatnot.

Oh great. Now a Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Ornk will appear in either this Episode or the next one. :eek:

Maybe, maybe not.

Andraste, do you have screenshots? Dikiyoba is picturing a drakon with a mustache and artilas with tattoos.

No I don't. All my edited files were lost in the great crash of August '06. :(

But, I do have a lot of spare time this weekend. Maybe something will show up...

:Edit: Ugh. I forgot how tedious paint editing was.

Can you send me the data for doing that?

Here's a start on what they look like. I've only done the mustache from this angle though.

From that one angle, it looks like the Fyora has grown large, floppy ears.

Wait a sec. The most advanced piece of technology the Shapers have is the Geneforge, which is essentially working on crude guesswork of how to rewrite a person, and yet there's Fyora running around with iPods?!?

I smell a conspiracy here. :P
