    Also, I meant to comment on this... with what's been asked about thus far, I suspect this would be a nearly impossible task.

    Vahnatai Crypt in Avenum 3: RUINED WORLD

    It's tricky to get out of there because you need to use move mountains spell to open the way to a portal.

    So.. This should be easy, masonic lodge Elks lodge Orange lodge or Odd fellows lodge. Just for fun.
  6. I entered a room with boxes and their was a sound like fire, when I go out of the room there are flames growing everywhere. Is there any way out of this predicament? I don't see anywhere to retreat.

    CBoE downloads gone?

    I may have mistakenly added the 'C' to the 'boes' extension Celtic'. All I know was that I had a version that could not open or run any scenarios save for the three included (Za Khazi, Small Rebellion, Valley...) which themselves had the '.boes' extension. I don't think I want to mess with newer, unstable versions for several reasons : I am on Windows XP and now days fewer and fewer games will run on such and also I don't think I have the time or patience right now to deal with massive bugs.

    Corrupted files, cannot launch, cannot delete. (A:EFTP)

    Scan your system with the good antivirus program or else update the outdated drivers from the manufacturer website or from the Microsoft official website. Hope this help you to resolve the Error 0x80070570: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

    But ligers are real though... Maybe I should give you something more difficult then, like say... Rate the first six StarWars movies.

    Text search functions: I think my feelings on these are well-known. Dead trees: Uh. Uhm. Well, I mean, you can do some pretty great things with their corpses, but I'm not sure that improves my opinion of trees being dead per se. Stairs with uneven steps: I've been trying to think of any time I've encountered this, and I can't think of any. This doesn't seem like it should be that hard to find, and yet... am I crazy? Vancian magic: It's hard to get more arcane than this. I support it on that account. Public libraries: A wonderful thing on so many levels. The Mary Tyler Moore Show: As mainstream sitcoms go, there aren't many that are so good on the details. Also, I mean, Ed Asner, come on. Your favorite nonfiction book: I'll rank this one, but it's remaining unidentified, because it's esoteric enough to be potentially personally identifying. Your least favorite bug: Wasps. They're so big! It's just creepy how big they are. The White Rabbit: Gets more appealing with each new adaptation, but in the original, it's hard to feel great about this guy. The March Hare: Equally crazy each time -- in a pretty generic way. The Jackalope: How in the world did we go from coming up with chimeras and hippogriffs to jackalopes and ligers? Yeesh. The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog: Vorpal bunny FTW. The Easter Bunny: Yet another patronizing, paternal, panoptical icon stuck on a holiday. The Harehunter: Per earlier statement, I am not including any members on the list.

  16. Geneforge 1-4 has the screen pretty zoomed in, but Geneforge 5 in particular, everything is very zoomed out. Solutions?
  17. Yesterday
  18. Hmm. I just walked through the whole thing again - talked to Ginny, talked to Sloan ("You make note of the location"), went to the body... But nothing happens (doesn't say "You don't find anything else" or anything like that). Went back to both Ginny and Sloan for good measure - just the same, original dialog. Not sure how I've messed this up, but I can't finish this quest. Oh, well...

    [GF4] Monarch's motives?

    Well, Monarch says such things himself... Taygen is not much better, he is also a misanthrope. But Taygen didn't act (at least on that scale). Monarch's solution to clean house was "I have to go to the store and buy Clorox. What a bother... it may rain. Oh, wait, I have a ton of nerve agent next to the kitchen counter! It would also clean my place. Yeah, I will go with that. Faster". This detachment he shows, the "I can create life so I don't value it" taken beyond the scale is fascinating for me.

    Have their been any mods for CS or RW? [Update]

    I'm pretty sure It didn't work, if you look I was the next comment after that post. Thanks anyway. I've already started updating the mod myself. I found a few errors in it that I'm also correcting. I'm trying to make it easier to copy the changes into RW so it wont be as much of a chore when the time comes. [UPDATE] While I'm doing this does anyone have any change requests? (Maybe I should start a new topic?) I thought of some changes I'd like to make but I'm not sure if I could do them. 1. Bring back blunt weapons, (Based off the stick, they wont scale with any weapon skill, [?instead scale with Endurance?]. They will weigh at least twice as much as other weapons, good for paladins or tank builds). Not sure how to make it scale with endurance, I'd also have to replace existing items with hammers, any suggestions? 2. I heard slith and nephilm were underpowered. They get less traits right? I want to offset that with items that are somehow exclusive to those races (I would rather make them level the same as humans do but I'm pretty sure that's hard coded).
  23. It didn't when I tried it. You need to get Sloan to tell you where he lost it.
  24. Thanks! I figured it was a special item. But here's the thing - I have talked to Sloan. However, there's a good chance I found the body BEFORE I talked to Sloan. I've gone back to the body. (So many times. So, so many times.) Did finding the body before talking to Sloan mess things up?
  25. Hey all. I've got 48 magical notes. Who the world wants them? Hope it wasn't anyone at the tower of the magi cuz that place got REKT. Thanks in advance. Love these forums, will be looking for ways to contribute.

    [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?

  28. 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.
