    The point of Haste?

    I'm not a fan of nu-haste. Haste in the original Avernums was one of my favourite spells.

    Geneforge - Diablo 3 Makeover

    Eh, I just want to use the setting of Avernum and make it in a Doom map. World design/creation is what I'm into.

    Geneforge - Diablo 3 Makeover

    Now and then I've thought about trying to make Avernum as a Doom map.

    Avadon 1: Should I equip people I don't plan on using?

    Ah thanks. I was wondering if it would be needed to grind to get the level 30 medal after finishing the game. Good to know I have a lot of game left.
  5. Just as the title says. Will I ever be forced to take certain party members with me? Just wondering if I should be equipping them with items or to just continue ignoring them.

    Geneforge on Windows 10: Out of ideas

    No idea, works fine for me with DirectDrawEmulation. Though with the flickering, for me, I found it was because of the taskbar transparency.

    Avadon 1: Should I equip people I don't plan on using?

    Oh, I pick up every item that has a value. I wonder how far I am into the game. I think my characters are around level 17/18. I also lowered the difficulty to normal and I'm having a better time with the game. It makes big fights less stressful and that lets me relax a bit more.

    Avadon 1: Should I equip people I don't plan on using?

    I've been taking Janell along with me every time. I'm using her as a healer and kind of a beastmaster. I'm a Blademaster and I've also been taking Nathalie with me. I haven't had too many troubles so far, but I'm only playing on hard. There's something about he game I can't put my finger on, but this game feels different from Avernum and Geneforge past the different mechanics and a new-ish engine.

    Avadon 1: Should I equip people I don't plan on using?

    Ah, thanks. I'll hand some equipment down to the characters I won't really use. It took some time to warm up to the game. It's a new engine for me, and the skill system is a complete change. Having fun though.

    G2: Creation Questions

    Oh, that makes sense that it's the giving up ending. It was so depressing, though I have nothing against a depressing ending (I've done that before). I was aligned with the Awakened when I walked away. Unrelated, it might take me some time to get used to Avadon.

    G2: Creation Questions

    Just a couple of quick questions regarding creations. - Do I get any benefit for keeping a creation and leveling it up through experience? I know in G1 is was better to make new creations over time. -When I level up a shaping skill, should I absorb the effected creations and make new ones? Edit: Or I could just experiment in game.

    G2: Creation Questions

    The awakened ending was indeed much better. Now I'm done with the game. I'll save some of the other endings for a second playthrough some time in my life. Now I think I'll move on to the first Avadon.

    G2: Creation Questions

    I didn't know I could walk away like that. I just did that and checked out that ending. Kind of a depressing one, so I'll see what the awakened ending is like.
  14. Chopkinsca

    G2: Creation Questions

    I think I must be really close to the end now. I allied with the Awakened, so I just have to do that quest line to finish up?

    G2: Creation Questions

    I'm not sure who I'd join, now. I'm kind of pro-creation, especially since it's who I spent G1 dealing with. I was going to join the takers, but the first quest to kill someone, I just couldn't do it. I'm not sure if I'll do Gazak-Uss. I might end up just wanting to get the game over with, but maybe not. I'll give it a shot.
  16. Chopkinsca

    G2: Creation Questions

    Ah. I put a dent in Outer Gazak-Uss then found out it's a challenge zone. I feel I'm getting somewhat close to the end. I do have a few zones that I'm not sure if I'll ever do. I have also yet to join a sect, so I think I'll get on that.

    G2: Creation Questions

    I'll probably be done with the game soon, but sure. I'll have to remember your little mod for when I play G3. I downloaded it so hopefully I don't forget. Just wondering, are there any challenge zones in the game? Zones with nothing but a challenge for the brave and/or the sadistic.

    G2: Creation Questions

    Ooh, that's a shame. I just found a leader's sword and thought the +2 to creation strength was pretty sweet.

    G2: Creation Questions

    I want to play a guardian. I also want to play an agent. Maybe in the future when I replay the game. I feel shaper is the class the game is meant to be played with, at least the first time through.

    G2: Creation Questions

    Indeed they are. I tried one pair quite a few times before giving up. Just today I've disarmed two other sets. Good thing loading a saved game takes no time at all.
  21. Chopkinsca

    G2: Creation Questions

    I'll try to remember that for when I get to G3. I'll be playing Avadon 1 next, so G3 will be after that. Early on I was treating my creations as disposable. Now I'm trying my best to keep them alive, reloading if one dies. Maybe I'll add a small question here. What do I do when there are two disarm-able mines close to each other? I can disarm one, but I'm close enough to trigger the other one. Is that just more for a character who can take one blast?

    G2: Creation Questions

    Since I went with magic shaping in Geneforge 1, I thought I'd go with fire this time around. I added another Cryoa and found a huge roamer. I also have enough essence left over so I can do quite a bit of healing and blessing. All in all, things are going swimmingly.

    G2: Creation Questions

    I'm playing on normal at the moment. I started with tricky, but felt every place I went was a "come back when stronger" kind of place. I'm running just two cryoa's. I don't really have problems in combat. When I said instant death, I mean things like entering a zone that has a damage aura, or whatever. Before I realize what's going on, I'm dead. The Thahd dump grounds was anoying as well, those thahds with a auras. Then in another zone, entered a house that had some kind of poison going on in it. Dead before I could turn myself around. I do want to get a third creation going. Not sure what it will be.

    G2: Creation Questions

    Thanks for the information. I ended up just experimenting a bit, comparing new creation to one I had for a while. I'm enjoying the game so far. The only complaint is that I keep running into instant death. I'm a shaper. Maybe I just need to play better, such as scouting ahead with my creations.

    A5: I... I'm a monster [spoilers]

    Ah.. well. I'm a bit too soft, I suppose. I wouldn't last a day in Avernum.
