    [GF4] Monarch's motives?

    Monarch was a man with infinite power and no sense of scale--a madman, as we'd call such a creature in our own world. There's a pretty great John Mulaney skit where he says the line "That's the thing about crazy people, they just have unlimited crazy currency, the things they say don't mean anything to them." This was someone who was at a power level where he could lift a finger and wipe out a swathe of countryside with a horde of ravening beasts. If he wanted to be rid of society (either as an end in itself or as a means to get peace for his research) it took comparatively more effort to pick up and go someplace else rather than just raze and kill everything within a hundred-mile radius of his laboratory. We see that canisters erode a user's empathy, and indeed their ability to care about anything but their own pursuits, their ability to so much as recognize the sentience of other life forms. What if Monarch was so far down the rabbit hole that this was just his solution to finding a mess on his kitchen counter? What if everything he did, from his perspective, was no more unreasonable than taking some Clorox bleach spray and cleaning house?

  4. The ring is a special item so you didn't sell it. However you need to have talked to Sloan and got the body's location from him to get the ring. Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your sanity at the door. It's just wasting space that you need to play the game.
  5. I can't seem to find Ginny's ring in Sharimik. I can get to the body in the SW corner, but when I touch it nothing happens - no ring. Or did I find this ring before and sell it? Is that possible? If so, can I replace it with another ring? This is just about the last quest on my list and I'd love to clear it off.

    Another scenario, and we have an inn in trouble that must be protected. Well it sounds simple enough, right? https://youtu.be/GAkwSToXd7s
  7. Have been banging the door and crying for bugs for weeks. No attention. Alas, nevermind then I am done with the game already.
  8. Can you perform the equivalent of a right-click on the iPad? My experience of Mac computers is limited to growing up in a Mac household in the 90s, and I haven't touched one since, so my knowledge is severely limited and out of date.

    Slarty Ranks Everything

    What a fascinating thread. Slarty, you have clearly outdone yourself. At first I thought that I would have pun with this, but the meticulous manner with which you consider each word is more compelling that I remain sane. I am particularly impressed by your dissertatio1`n regarding the McDonalds Coffee Caper. Much of that information was not disclosed at the the time. Too many people jumping up and down try to attract attention to their particular cause` de jour. And now for your rating pleasure I submit my list of words: The White Rabbit, The March Hare, The Jackalope, The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, Harvey (the Pouka), Harry (as in the Jerry Lewis movie The Geisha), The Easter Bunny, Did a rabbit really attack Jimmy Carter? The Harehunter If you put me at the very bottom of your list, I will consider that fair in light of my long absence.

    The Grand Spiderweb Poll, 2017 Edition: Demographics & Favorites

    ADOS, I have finally gotten around to looking at those broken links mentioned, and found there is no way that you could fix two of them. I fixed them today by reaching into my hidden vault , which I made visible,

    Complete Exile 2 outdoor map (massive spoilers)

    Hey folks , Harehunter here. I found myself in a rare idle moment checking on my website "harehunter.info" when I noticed the link to the Exile II maps was broken. The link was supposed to point to Olly Clarks page, which seems to have finally been discontinued. Many years ago I noticed just how transient web sites are. Being an Archivist as well as a Cartographer, I have downloaded many websites for just the eventuality of another site going offline. Soooo... I have added a section to my harehunter.info called The Vault. I have uploaded Olly's page in it's entirety. It was a really useful site. Anyway, if anyone is looking for Olly, enjoy. And now it I must return down the rabbit hole, back to wonderland.
  16. Thanks! I have done it once before by luck I guess. Couldn't remember how. I'll go save my party!
  17. Correction, Kelandon, Minion's statement is not in any way, shape or form accurate. I've been using Macs since the '80s and non-Apple input devices for just as long. Even I know that the default Apple mice of today allow for a right click on the right half of the single-button mouse. All Apple input devices allow for right clicks. I sometimes use a Mac laptop or Apple Magic Trackpad. I certainly right click on those. Apple's non-trackpad input devices are ridiculous, but there are other options. I have a 20-year-old Logitech Wheel Mouse that is still going strong, so additional cost is not a factor. A third-party mouse will work on a Mac without even making an adjustment to the OS settings.

    We know who caused this whole debacle, and now we must deal with her. https://youtu.be/WrmpzvkUHUk
  19. That's not entirely accurate. Macs have had a functional right click for about two decades now. The default mouse has only one button, so you have to use a control-click to access it, but if you use a laptop or a third-party mouse, it's easily accessible.

    poulsbo giants

    The commander is in the office room of the southeast barracks. He wants the ones hidden inside Poulsbo. He's not interested in ones outside the town zone in the area.
  21. I've forgotten who to tell that I killed the camp of giants near Poulsbo. The quest itself says to tell the commander in Poulsbo, but he doesn't seem to be interested.
  22. I am the boss at Bioware and I play nothing but Jeff Vogal games.
  23. If you have move mountains level 3 there is a shortcut to the center. Otherwise I head along the east wall and then go west before the quad beams and work my way through the conduits in fight mode.
  24. Okay, I've gotten to the Upper Golem factory, used the control panel to do what the "hints" guide suggested. But I can't get past the quad beans that run through the middle. They never seem to turn off. I suppose my party will be here forever (sigh).
  25. You are being very rude and obnoxious, and I do not believe that is good for you. It is obvious that Jeff Vogel is passionate about both his games and that the people who play them have fun. Anyway, the only menu I can think of where you would need to scroll very far is the junk bag, and if you just make sure to keep stackable loot in your inventory (I recommend using your lead character for this) instead of placing, say, individual iron bars in the junk bank, it will be less cluttered. Also, the games are for both MacOS, Windows and iOS, two out three which do not support right-clicking.

    Have their been any mods for CS or RW?

    http://spiderwebforums.ipbhost.com/topic/19120-aeftp-avernum-reremix-graphics-mod/?do=findComment&comment=287540 I havent played this mod at all so I dont even know if it's playable.
  27. Also, I’ve read several interviews with JV and seen his interactions with his customers ... he’s certainly a to-the-point, matter-of-fact kind of guy, but nothing I’ve ever seen suggests that he maltreats or dislikes his fan base. On the contrary, he makes a point to be very responsive and willing to share advice. Maybe you’re mistaking his sense of humor?

    Exile III Complete Monster List

    Looking into this...oh, the giants are in BoE twice. Monsters 54-57 are Cave Giant, Giant Shaman, Giant Chief and Mutant Giant, while monsters 155-158 are Hill Giant, Hill Giant Fighter, Hill Giant Shaman and Hill Giant Chief. The normal/cave giants are generally tougher than the Hill Giants, but the Hill Giant Chief has more health than the Giant Chief. I should totally start, lose interest in and abandon a BoE scenario about Cave Giants fighting Hill Giants. There was a Giant Chief unconnected to the Hill Giants in E3, SW (ish) of Fort Emergence on the surface. Always seemed a bit odd, especially as scrying him had him separate to Hill Giants, but I guess it makes sense.
