    No, I went in through the tunnels. He's instantly hostile if you've killed Rahul, and I didn't get the quest. I fought my way into the keep so Rahul was already hiding in his quarters when I got there.

    I started a new game with the editor, made it to Rahul in an hour and killed him, couldn't even get in to see the creator. The doors won't open unless you talk to general greiner or do something for him, and he's hostile to me (as is the whole camp)

    An adventurer is I?

    Just finished Geneforge 3! It was fantastic! I can definitely see why people think it's the weakest entry in the series since it's so different from the first two, but even though there are only two sides I feel like it expands the opportunity for nuance within each side (e.g. Khyryk and Learned Darian)! I was slightly less happy about the lack of a neutral option, but that really solidifies the difference in theme between this game (and its sequel, I assume) and the first two: in those you're a visitor, and outsider exploring a world outside of Shaper control. This time, you're irrelevant. Pick a side or get out. You matter less to the central conflict. Anyways, excited play 4!!

    So I know everyone hates the guy that bumps a 5 year old thread, but I wanna provide an update on my... progress??? I finished Geneforge 1, loved every second of it, said I'd start 2 in a week or so, and promptly didn't do it for what turned out to be 5 years. Anyways I just blew through 2 in a week. I allied with the awakened, mercilessly hunted down the Triad, crushed Barzahl, and now I'm on to Geneforge 3 before I forget!! The second game was amazing, and felt like an expansion of the first in every way. I loved all the recurring characters and throwback mentions of them, like Eko Blade and Syros still being around. It felt a lot like a finished story? Sucia Isle had this air of their being so much more WORLD to explore, and Geneforge 2 does as well with it being in a remote corner of the world but it also felt less about discovery. It was absolutely perfect and I'm so glad I picked it back up. I promise I'll be back in a few weeks with a Geneforge 3 update! I'm thinking of finally playing as a Loyalist of some sort this time, and also changing up my playstyle. Usually I'm so brutally squishy that I hide my shaper from combat, so maybe this time I'll play a guardian. Get into the thick of it!

    I didn't understand a single thing any of you said and I still don't know what implants are except that the source material is gone.

    I do love KoL, and... implants?

    Alright so after doing some more research, I'm going to play the 5 Geneforge games, Avadon (and its sequel when it comes out), Nethergate resurrection, and the Avernum series. I'm not really going to bother with the original exile games or the first Nethergate, opting instead for their remakes (is this a good decision?). I'm not sure about the latest remake, Avernum: Escape from the Pit. Should I play it instead of the first Avernum game? Should I do both? Will playing A:EftP and then going to the older Avernum 2 be too jarring? Are there remakes planned for the other Avernum games? Either way, that's 5+6+1+1=13 games, not counting Blades or Avadon 2. By the time I finish Geneforge it'll have been around a month since I started (I took a week break, and I didn't play /every/ day, but it's still a lot.) I have a lot ahead of me. EDIT: Oh, and what ever happened to Richard White/Crystal Shards? Who/what were they? I could barely find anything. Also, what's Subterra? I found it on the FAQ page?

    When I was quite young, my family had a gateway computer, a desktop. On this computer was a program called gateway games, which let you play game demos a limited amount of times. Most of the games were terrible, but there were a few games that I truly enjoyed, namely Fate and Geneforge. On Gateway Games there were demos of Geneforge 1 and 2, and eventually 3. I played the demos until they were entirely spent. They were, at the time, amazing. Recently, years after the computer and gateway were both long gone, I remembered Geneforge and decided to look it up. I got the first geneforge and started playing, and found that the game was far better than I remembered, the story now within my understanding. A few weeks later, exempting a week break, here I am still playing Geneforge (I finally got past the West Gate today, working on Valley of the Wind.) I decided today to look up Spiderweb Software and discovered quite a few interesting things. I was worried at first that the company did not exist any longer. It was rather old I already knew. I found that the company is still making games, that there are, in fact, a ridiculous amount of games by Spiderweb Software, and most surprising at all, we is a royal we and spiderweb is pretty much one person. So here I am. I'm going to, eventually, get to all the Geneforge games. I'm absolutely infatuated with them (and if I remember 2 and 3 correctly, I'll eventually get an item hotbar). And I've looked on his website to see Avernum, Nethergate, Exile, and all of their installments. How many of them are worth my while? In a day of searching, I've heard ridiculous amounts of praise for all of them. Graphics and sound don't bother me in the least(And for all the [censored] i've seen it get, Geneforge looks pretty damn good to me). So is there any single game that's particularly bad? Or are they all as amazing as Geneforge is?
