    ...Okay, but why, though? [G5]

    Your persistent unwillingness to play original Geneforge never ceases to amuse, Alhoon. Your dedication is impressive. 😂
  2. I, for one, am neither a piano tuner, an Eskimo, or a septuagenarian. Just to be clear. Hmm...I wonder if there any interesting demographic categories of which I am a member? LOL.
  3. Vahnatai! More evidence for the old Vahnatai creation theory! 😱 That feeling when Jeff has been in business for decades and someone tells him to use social media and do interviews. 😂😂😂

    Geneforge 3 How to save the 2nd creator?

    When you enter the chamber of the second creator monster, a scene will play where the creature talks to you and an NPC Shaper shows up. You'll need to click on some of the nearby machinery and select the dialogue option to repair it. Then you'll have to kill the Shaper. As best I can tell, no matter what you do, you will always lose one of either Greta or Alwan after the third island. Help the creature and lose Alwan, kill the creature and lose Greta.

  6. Jeff almost never reads these forums, so if you have a question like this, your best bet is to email.

    No one has posted in this thread in four years and the creator, Jerakeen, hasn't been around in a long time. You aren't likely to get any answers. Also, in the future, please consolidate your questions into one post rather than spamming posts in a row. Thanks.

    Slarty Ranks Everything

    That John C. Calhoun ranking...ugh, I can't stand that man. Talented and successful politician, sure, but plenty of awful people are successful politicians, so Calhoun has plenty of company. However, this ranking blunder does give me a convenient opportunity to share this delightful story about Mr. Calhoun that is unfortunately fictional but totally deserves to be true.

    Reactivate Taygen Questline?

    There's a cheat in most (all?) the Geneforge games that can reset the hostility of an individual zone (e.g. turning Icy End friendly after you made them angry). That's different from failing a quest so that an NPC will no longer hire you. I'm pretty sure it's technically still be possible to change you access to Taygen's quest line, but a bit more complicated than entering a cheat code. You'd need to dig in the scripts to identify the flag triggered by this Camp Dranir, then alter a zone script somewhere so you could change the flag to whatever Taygen's flag-check requires (e.g. add text so that when you, say, click on a sign, it sets the flag to the correct number). Disclaimer: I've never done this, nor played G5 (except the demo), I'm just going off what I've seen of various other posts on the Geneforge games.

    Huzzah! I'm NOW Dr. Triumph! - edited

    No, Randomizer's prognostication is accurate. I want to teach college history, so that's what I'll be looking for. However, jobs are scarce and seem to be getting scarcer, so I'm open to other possibilities if an opportunity appears. In the short-term, besides looking for jobs, I plan to work on fixing up my dissertation and trying to get it published.

    As of Saturday, 16 December, I am officially Dr. Triumph, PHD, and no longer a college student for the first time in forever!
