Hey! Why not an ambush when you are going between sections at certain places?

Because technically those little lines aren't land at all, they're there to make the world look bigger. There's not any actual space between the zones, or extremely little. Besides, you get ambushed enough in the regular zones.

By the way, it is Nalyd's impression that Shapers Shape by creating the zygote of a base creature, bombarding it with different types of radiation, and accelerating the growth process.
Judging by the PC's reaction to those magical microscopes in every game and a book in G2 (the one in Drypeak), Shapers don't know about the existence of DNA or even cells. (I have no idea how much they understand of heredity--probably not a whole lot.) I don't think they'd know what a zygote is. They'd need a more-developed creation to experiment with.

I found on he Loading screens were too quick for me to read the Creation information except that Battle Alpha Loin cloths were not stickily necessary, but advised to avoid shocking Townsfolk. :eek:

If you want to read this information, find the relevant graphic in the Files folder. On the Mac, it's in the file "Geneforge 4 Graphics" (or 3).

Thanks Celtic, that is informative. Where do they take their stem cells from? Or do they just manufacture the cells themselves as well?

Dikiyoba: I don't think anyone can disagree that shapers did not know anything about DNA and stuff, but I believe they could manipulate Genes without understanding the mechanisms behind it. Similar to how early humans unconsciously selected aurocs into cows without realizing what they were doing.

I definitely agree that Shapers are engaging in genetic engineering. I guess my point is that they go about it very differently than we do. Shapers live in a world of essence and magic, not DNA, cells, and radiation. Our way of thinking about how shaping could work is probably radically different than a Shaper would see it.

Good point. I guess I think of it more like science fiction now, what with all the amazing advances in biotech, its not hard to imagine the near-future containing some very relevant analogies to GF.

Or maybe I've been listening to too much Kurzweil.

I think it's interesting how the Shapers seem to have almost Trakovite ideas about having too much power. Whenever a group of researchers (Sucia Island group, Gull Island shapers, etc) have too many discoveries, like about Shaping each other or the Geneforge, they do everything possible to destroy that knowledge. This is why the drakons know all this stuff about cells and DNA, and most Shapers don't.

So why can't the Shapers and Trakovites get along? Both seem to have similar ideals to some extent. But I guess the only Geneforge character who agrees with me there is Khyryk.

Shapers and Trakovites?I don't know...

Edit-I would like a teleporting spell.That you could from anywhere in the zone teleport yourself to any place in any discovered zone.

A teleport spell could be very difficult to implement.

Supposedly Khyryk can teleport in G3, but only within his tower.

Edit: I never tried to kill him so I don't really know how it works, but that's what I've heard.

Also the imprisoned shaper(i can't remember her name) in G3 at Gull island teleports when you free her.It would be avesome if you had that power.

Agreed. I would so teleport myself to the other side of Turabi Gate.

Why would you need a Teleport spell in Geneforge?
Is zone warping not enough for you?

Why not?I would love a faster way of travel somewhere behind red sections(if its previously discovered of course othervise it would be like cheating)

And as Knobgoblinking said space betwen sections isn't land its there only to make world look bigger.

Nalyd didn't mean radiation per se - the exact wording was "The Shapers Shape a creation and bombard it with different types of magical energy", or something similar.

In real life, that would be called radiation.

Yes, the core difference between the Shapers and the drakons (or Sucia Island researchers) is that the mainstream Shapers used a trial and error system based on tradition, and the drakons/other Shapers studied the genetic code itself and then modified it. The latter, of course, is a main goal of modern genetic research.

That is actually one of the better ideas I have heard.

The lack of character graphics is odd.

What I meant was that the old guardian is pretty simple compared to the newer guardian and the warrior.
