Only a single game for you to worship, sorry.

Nethergate was really unique and I loved how you could play both sides of the story and each side had its advantages and disadvantages.

And how people would act differently to you depending on which side you were on.

Too bad there won't be a Nethergate 2.

It seems to me that this has been discusseed a few times before. There really isn't a way to make a Nethergate 2. I mean, the story was pretty much final. A new game done in the style of Nehtergate would be interesting though.

Maybe there would be a story about the celts and faeries, where you are either a celt or faerie party yourself.

You know, why the Sliths are green - because of their scales.

Maybe you know why some slith eyes were once red - ´cause the demons, which led them were red.

But why are the eyes of the Slith Lord Followers red? Because they see the remains of their enemies always before the battle begins!

I disagree without any humility whatsoever. Nethergate has Spiderweb's best plot, uses height very well, has a nice spell system and a very entertaining skill system, and has naked people painted blue and howling battle cries.

And there are faeries. With swords. And wands!

I'm the exact opposite. I'll take Nethergate and Avernum over Geneforge or Exile any time.

Me too. Something about the Nethergate/Avernum engine just gets me. Height, I think, among other things.

I, too, feel elevated when playing Nethergate or Avernum. Pun intended. :)

Nothing is final. Take this possible starting point for a 'Nethergate 2':
Vibius got killed by the four Celts.The four Celts got pulled down by the remaining Roman soldiers.Sylak got carved into itty bitty pieces by the four Romans.The hundreds of sidhe coming to use the gate are enraged and kill the Roman soldiers.The Celts plus their sidhe friends end up preparing to take the fight to the Romans.Assuming that Rome ever learns of what happened: Rome and its legions are many miles away - it would take time for them to show up and wipe the sidhe out. This would explain why the sidhe could mount a guerilla warfare campaign.
.
Assuming that Rome never learns of what happened: The sidhe would be understandably ticked off, and out for the Roman's blood. Again, guerilla warfare.

Personally, I thought the ending made it pretty clear that all the sidhe were sent through the gate.

Meh. You can always mangle a game with multiple endings if you so desire. As long as you make it plausible.

Nethergate only has one ending, and it happens to be a very good ending. Anything trying to build on it would lessen the impact of the original.

Besides, there's the pesky problem of real history. Adding Shadowvale is one thing. Getting the entire might of the Roman Empire involved in a war with faeries is another.

—Alorael, who wonders whether any sidhe ended up in the vicinity of Avernum. Maybe tall, slender, gray-skinned, bug-eyed sidhe.

Actually, there's a good and bad ending for the Romans. (Try finishing the game without destroying the wands.)

For the two parallel plots and the shameless inclusion of GIFTS, I love Nethergate. Generally, I'll take Avernum over Exile, although I much prefer Exile 3 over Avernum 3 (for the latter lacks 'scry monster', easily my favourite spell). Geneforge, though it is still wonderful, must be placed at the bottom due to the lack of Giant Intelligent Friendly Talking Spiders.

Anyways...

I agree that another Nethergate would be wonderful, but also feel that a Nethergate 2 would reduce the impact of the original. Why not a 'Nethergate 0', though? A prequel! (And then Nethergate -1, of course ;) )

Seeing how badly Geneforge 3 cheapened its predecessors by rehashing everything, I think a Nethergate 2 would be a disaster.

I read the other thread about improving Nethergate to run in OS X and so on, and hope that's the extent of Jeff's future Nethergaterian ambitions.

I started off with Nethergate and slowly chewed my way up through the games. My favourite would be the Avernum series, because of GIFTS. I don't like Exile though, and I don't know why...

Probably due to the fact it crashes my computer every time I start it.

I feel the same way. After I played Avernum, I never went back to Exile. :P

I never liked Nethergate. It always thought of it as much more difficult than the Avernum Series, and I didn't have the patience to play through as the romans, only as the Celts.
