    I had something along those lines in a scenario I was designing for BoE again (although I essentially gave up as the plot wasn't coming together smoothly and BoE doesn't really seem to work for Mac anymore, possible I could get a working Windows copy if I had Windows) - basically, one plot point involved an Empire city with a Nephilim mayor being attacked and some Empire citizens were claiming that it shows Nephils can't be trusted and so on.

    Well, hope you can get through this last fight! The sword *only* disappears once you kill Daynlae, so you can get rid of the other bosses with the sword. Hope you enjoyed, although seems you got frustrated with some of the battles. If you're interested in playing again later, I did compile some detailed hint guides, but figuring things out on your own might be just as much fun. At least you didn't have to fight Chaerephon as well... I have a new version of OG&E coming, as long as I can find somewhere to upload it. Fixes a few bugs, and updates contact information.

    I'll give you a free hint to help fight the Faeries: seek out Iezabel and get the spell "Divine Fire". Search for her grotto just outside the Faerie lands, it will appear sometimes. As for the Lich, you might try Natural Shielding again, you appear to be a day past fighting the Faeries.

    In order to save Molidax, you have to proceed there immediately after the Faerie fight, if you enter Genmar it's too late.

    Well, I'll need to fix the bug at Thasmaskon, so the player doesn't get stuck. As far as the Faerie fight, some suggestions, based on what you have: 1) The Natural Shielding ability does make one invulnerable. Your shielding crystal has two uses, so you can make three out of four of your party temporarily invulnerable. 2) Consider going back in the Slith fort and getting War Blessing at Level 5. Not sure about this, but acid could work as well. 3) Continue using the Magic Dice, some of the abilities are more powerful than what you saw.

    Surprised you didn't check the desk in the library room, might find something interesting ;). If you're really stuck on the ROY G BIV puzzle, I might suggest... (spoiler format in case you aren't stuck quite yet).

    It’s been really fun watching my BoA adaption being played in real-time! As you probably know, the scenario branches in two halves at this point. It actually felt really suspenseful watching the video and awaiting to see which path you would choose. I actually did not know about the Paladin plot points so that was interesting. I do know Alcritas’s scenarios were influenced by the works of Plato and Greek philosophy, which influenced moral/grey areas throughout. I thought this decision worked really well, as it really challenges the audience to consider a true moral dilemma. Even in other split scenarios, such as A Small Rebellion or Spears, I never quite got the same feeling, as it seemed more like “two sides are at conflict. Pick one to join.” But here I thought some true philosophical questions were raised. And as you’ll see, there are consequences to your decisions. On a side note, the BoE scenario had the tunnels to the Godan fort filled with basilisks. As you saw, I kept a few, but I switched to hydras as I never thought basilisks were the most fun challenge - they basically seem more like an adversary where your chances are based more on luck than skill. As for the Arcanic Hydras - well some creatures can have anomalously high intelligence.

    There's *holy water* located somewhere on the first floor of the dungeon (not the magic water from the Old Hut). Thanks for playing!

    Any plans for new releases of OBoE?
  11. That has to be a bug. There are 35 days a year, and that is a fixed setting in game (not editable in scenario editor), as far as I know.

    I remember Alcritas said this in an article, back in the old BoE days in 2001.
  13. The Roy G Biv panel is a code. What was in the "_readme" file, pretty sure that's it.
  14. Well I'll have to fix the Windows version not having a readme! Thanks for letting me know. I've actually noticed some similar problems with my copy of BoA recently (I'm on OSX 10.9 and Nobody's Heroes crashes the same way you described. VoDT does though. Perhaps my version is out of date?) I'm not sure,are there any bugs that only apply to Windows and wouldn't happen on a Mac, that I couldn't catch without a Windows tester? EDIT: Where did you download the Windows version of OG&E? I see a readme on Tyran's download site.

    Little off topic, but thought I'd mention that Of Good and Evil, my port of a BoE scenario, is like A Small Rebellion where you pick your path. Noticed you were asking about orders and such earlier in the thread.
