    Grand Poll Results, Part 2: Game Ratings

    I don't know why you keep repeating that, when I've obviously read your explanation but don't it explanatory.

    Grand Poll Results, Part 2: Game Ratings

    Edit: I am interpreting this as a scatterplot of respondents scores against number of games they have rated. So you can visualize correlation between those two. But I think I am missing something in the construction here because that doesn't account for the colors?

    Grand Poll Results, Part 2: Game Ratings

    Crikey, that's an impressive set of charts. On the 'Ratings by Player' chart can you explain the coloring of the blobs?

    Political Compass - Round Infinity

    (I plan to ignore the present conflict, simply record my results: Quote: Economic Left/Right: -1.75 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.51 and duck back out of sight again, before the next missile comes over.)
  5. Well I admit I didn't analyze it deeply, it was an impression I formed from playing. As you say, the one-shot kills aren't guaranteed; but then nor is the second attack from haste, and it's still useful when it happens. You're probably right that it's a false comparison with the first playthrough; I certainly wasn't getting this many critical hits this early in the first game. For sure it makes the demo area less tedious, and that's welcome.

No, I read that and I understand what the intention is. I think in the later game it will mean bows/melee are genuinely competitive. But in the early game, it's now unbalanced. It's absurdly easy to play the eastern gallery with an archer character with a cavewood longbow. I think you could tone down the effect on the weak bow types i.e. crude and cavewood, the ones available at Fort Duvno.
  7. I decided to replay A:EftP with the Remix, for variety. At least this time there'll be more than one battle discipline that's actually worthwhile. But is there any timeline for a 1.2 release? Btw, I'd say bows are now almost too powerful; my level 3 archer just hit an unfortunate goblin for 178 damage. That's WAY more damage than the other chars can do at this point.

    The *other* age poll

    Nice poll. Although I'm curious as to how the third question has 251 votes, while the other two each have 8 votes.

    A4: Hotkey for selling items

    There's no keyboard shortcut for selling items in these older games. Selling is also uncancellable, so if you make a mistake and sell the wrong item, you have to reload a saved game

    A Simple Question

    I would think he would most likely make the doomguards the same way as Avernum 5.

    Storing Items?

    Perhaps he meant desks.
  14. There are actually four different ways to reach Spire without going via Fort Spire.
  15. I think you are stuck with it now. The solution is to find another route to Spire, so you don't get searched
