This poll is about forging.

I personally liked the G3, G4 way of forging better than the G1, G2 way. I like the anvil, it was a good idea to add it as it adds a whole new dimension to the game.

I liked the items of G3 the best, specifically the artifacts. In G4 I miss the Emerald Chestguard a lot.

Isn't the Emerald Chestguard an A4 artifact?

The emerald chestguard started in GF3 and was copied with several other Geneforge items to A4 to save Jeff time.

Didn't it start in G2?

I never knew that the emerald chestguard was in G3.
I only knew my favorite armor from A4 from A4.

I can transform into almost anything, though not sanity.

Yes, the emerald chestguard was an artifact in G2.

I don't favor one crafting system over the other. G2's system meant that I didn't have to worry about remembering the recipes. G4 lets me enchant equipment, but not many of the effects seem worthwhile (and I didn't even bother with crystals and wands).

Did G1 even have any forging besides the crystals/wands in the mines?

In G2 and G3, it is hugely more powerful: the emerald chestguard in A4 pluses another 2 action points bonus.

I believe that in G5 all the more powerful artefacts should be crafted and a few maybe found and awarded - but very few.
I think it'd go well with the story where there's an all out war and a huge destruction (even weapons and armour shattered).

USA is evil!
Europe is bust!
Wars are elsewhere!
Unity is a must!
