  1. Especially in the Geneforge Series. Shapers in general (shapers, guardians, agents) should be intelligent as a primary requirement, before being accepted in an academy or school of shaping. Remember the in the start of G3, all students have to endure very hard academy work, learning, studying, memorizing all about the shaping arts. Surely no intellectually challenged people can be accepted at school. So, a very low intelligence stat feels and looks weird for someone who should be at the intellectual top of the society. Maybe it can work, if we look at it relatively where 1 Int stat is generally considered as very high compared to the intelligence of the average citizen. But it still looks weird to me. In the game, Int really just functions as a stat that increases you essence and spell energy, so it feels even weirder. Maybe just replace it with a different name for possible remakes? What could be possible replacements? Its really weird isn't it, or maybe its just me.

    GF World Map

    Is the g2 map really within the g5 map and cant be seen because of how it scales with the g5 map? Or is it just east of Gazaki-uss and cant be seen in the g5 map? And there's a giant lake between the g4 and g5 maps? And is it stated in the begining of g4 where greta, the pc and the party came from by boat? The 1st area is in the southeastern most tip of the map right?

    GF World Map

    Yes thank you alhoon. I think this connects g4 ane g5. Got any ideas where the maps of g1-g3 get into this? IIRC I saw a thread connecting the mountains of Gazaki-uss to that of the taker lands in g2. Dunno if thats correct tho. And where do the sholai lands fit into all these?

    GF World Map

    Has someone already tried to piece together the 5 gf maps? If there is already a thread for this could someone kindly link? Or if there is none maybe we can try to put the big puzzle together

    Thats why I put an apology there for not being very specific in stating the question. And I assure you that it wont be changed anymore because what I said when I rephrased it is what exactly Im thinking to begin with. I will just mention one of the many possible bad effect of excessive philosophical discussion. It will consume massive amounts of time tn the point the participants neglect to do other things.

    Vlish in Geneforge series.

    I also think that the name Vlish dont fit it nicely. I think it should be called Squiggles or something...

    I posted this topic here because I had this heated argument with my friends 2 days ago about this. Im on the side of disproving the statement so I had to come up with something but like you, Im also drawing a blank so I came and posted here, maybe to find so fresh ideas. As for goodness, I think that goodness in anything can be abused so thats negative.

    AFAIK there is no statement that says just the right amount is always good, so there is no point discussing things not in the excess. If we are to prove that something is right, then there must not exist any exemption, and any small chance is an exemption. So I think that it is still a good definition.

    Im sorry if the question in the first post maybe too vague. It could be rephrased more accurately as: Is there anything, be it matter, energy or abstract, that can be increased infinitely and still has 0% chance to affect anything in any negative way? If there is something that could qualify this then it can be debunk the saying that anything in excess is bad. Otherwise, the statement remains true. Edit I forgot to state that it must be in excess too. There are some things that you can increase infinitely but still not be in excess (like numbers).

    Favorite and weirdest dishes tasted.

    The pork dish that I've discribed above is not considered weird in my country. Some weird (for me) food here include fried frogs, stir fried worms, and fried 1-day old chicks(hatched chicken egg). Sadly the only one that I have tried is the day old chick.

    Well humans are the ones responsible for the creation of the concept of good or bad, so I think anything that we label as good or bad is valid. I have to disagree that this is simply just a problem in economics because of the fact that not everything excessive is quantifiable and can be measured with numbers.

    Well some things can be bad too without humans in the picture. Take a volcano for example. Imagine it erupted so excessively strong it wiped out everything off the face of this planet. Well thats bad right?

    Favorite and weirdest dishes tasted.

    My favorite dish is called Sisig from where Im from. Its a pork dish using parts from the cheeks and ears, some fat and liver. Sometimes brains are put in it. Lots of onions. Some hot chillies. Everything diced and cooked on a sizzling plate. Perfect with a bottle of cold beer. I forgot to mention that all pig parts are cooked over fire first.

    Yes I totally agree that excess money can also be good, but can also be really bad. Thus, money can also fit the definition of anything in excess is bad. Well if there is a chance that it will be bad in excess, no matter how small the chance is, then it is still bad.

    Well what I mean of excessive here is that a little excess and an excess in unrealistic amounts mean the same. I think that all your examples will be bad in unrealistic excessive amounts.
