    Beta for Scenario: Skirmish in the Tunnels

    So sorry for the long delay, been a very busy past couple weeks. Here are the links for PC version and Mac: PC - http://blades.nether...ishBeta1Win.zip Mac - http://blades.nether...ishBeta1Win.zip Just looking for some opinions on how it runs and all Also, thank you Tyranicus for uploading those for me.
  2. First of all, I'm not sure who to ask to upload the scenario (or where it's uploaded for that matter), so I need to get that sorted. Sorry about that. I originally made the "Battle for Gale" scenario (quite awhile ago, im afraid), which was an experiment into more strategic BoA combat. Because, why not? This is another in the series. Again, only one battle, not a very complicated plot. I'm mostly working out some of the scripting, noting some suggestions that were made by BMA. If this one is liked, im going to try implementing it into a larger scenario, for fun battle sequences. That is, if anyone still cares. c:

    Avernum Games

    Well this is just amazing. My scenario had to do with the history a generation or two after A3, and I tried to bring that together with events in the BoA scenarios, especially A Small Rebellion. Knowing that the community has alot of interest in it gives some more reason to actually go and finish it. Very very big though. I guess I'll just wish for Spiderweb to do a pre-history game series for the far future.

    Avernum Games

    I really like the Avernum/Exile world that Jeff Vogel created for the series, especially the surface and the Empire. The underground world is thoroughly explored in all the games, but only one of them goes onto the surface. I know the whole point is exploring Avernum, the underworld, but there seems to be a lot of history for the surface world as well. I've read a few Exile history documents that Jeff wrote, specifically one about the Anama war, and one about the conquering of Valorim. Not actually sure where I got them from, I assume it was written by Spiderweb. My question is, will the world Avernum is set in be explored more, especially the history and future of the surface world? If not, is anyone else interested in it? It's something I've personally tried to explore with a big BoA scenario I've been working on for far too long.

    The name of the maid in A3

    Ah awesome, thank you very much. I should have thought to look for a walkthrough.
  6. I don't remember the name of the maid in Hawke's Manse in Avernum 3. I tried cheating my way into Lorelei to get the mansion, since I didn't want to play through the whole game again, but I wasn't able to do it. If anyone has been playing it recently or still has a save from it, it would be really nice to know her name, for a scenario I'm doing in BoA. (Woo, long live BoA! Never shall I let you die!)

    Wesnoth Multiplayer Anyone?

    Cast Spell: Topic Necro! This topic has been reborn. So, has everyone pretty much stopped playing Wesnoth? or is there still interest in it? (is totally not lurking around these boards, he just wants some wesnoth buddies )

    Blades of Avernum: Nostalgia and Beauty.

    The coals are still smoldering, all they need now is a good blow and a little fuel, then BoA will be up and running with the wind again. Don't let the embers die out! I really like the graphics too, probably because I've spent far too much time looking at them. And I think it's amazing what some people have done in their scenarios to make them look really beautiful. Niemand and TM's scenarios come to mind.

    Movies - 2012

    But which Star Trek? I saw The Hobbit a week or two ago, and I was rather dissapointed with it. Of course, I read the book just a few weeks earlier, so I was able to pick out all the discrepencies. It was a good movie, and I enjoyed watching it, but I liked it far less than the Lord of the Ring films, because it seemed to focus much more on the action sequences. In LotR, the plot was more important than the battles, therefore all the action added to the story. In The Hobbit, there were many added action scenes that didn't really make sense (like when Radagast draws off the wargs and Thorin's company flee into Rivendell). To me, there was far too much going on, and hardly ever a moment of rest, at least, that lasted very long. Still though, I enjoyed it. Also I saw The Avengers, which had alot of action, but I didn't expect much of a plot, so I was fine with that. I saw and liked Men in Black 3, and saw Ice Age: Continental drift, which wasn't the best. The first Ice Age was funny, because it didn't appeal exclusively to kids, but this last one didn't have alot of subtle humor. As far as I can remember anyway.

    Who still plays?

    I'm still hanging on to BoA, writing bits of scenarios I'd like to make, from time to time. I would play this if you finished it. I haven't played much of BoE, but I've heard that Alcritas made the best scenarios. Might even motivate me to do something with the scraps I've got for BoA.

    How spammy have you been since UBB.

    I think it's because, as Sylae showed in the graph in the posting topic, most people post around 12 to 7 pm (MDT), the time between lunch and dinner, more or less. Unless of course you eat spontaneously at random times during the day. Speaking of which, I think it's about time I had breakfast/supper...

    The Spider Bus Returns

    Charles finishes bandaging the minors scrapes and bruises he obtained during the raptor fight. He emerges from the bus bathroom to find a dinosaur instructing a smaller dinosaur on the proper method of cleaning spills with a rag. Only they aren't spills, but rather blood stains. The larger dinosaur notices Charles exit from the restroom. Dikiyoba: "Ah, now Dinky Yoda can get cleaned up. Excuse me." Leaving Dikiyoba to that, Charles gets off the bus to see how the others are doing. A few have disappeared, heading off to hunt the raptors, according to those left. He apparently missed some action while he was gone, something involving a box and a doctor. Very confusing. Charles heads off in the direction he last remembered the raptors ran. Traveling for awhile, he soons loses all sense of direction, stumbling once again through the bushes in search of the lost raptor tracks. He hears the echoing gurgle of a stream in the distance, probably amplified by rock walls. He heads towards the sound. At the very least he can find something to drink. Suddenly he hears a loud banging! Crashes and clangs resound around the forest, amplified greatly. He runs towards the commotion, and a short while later the cause is in view. A bouncing, aluminium-covered object is being chased by the same pack of velociraptors as those that attacked the bus. Getting closer, Charles recognizes the object as that strange beast with several eyes. In a moment of sheer courage (or stupidity) he rushes in between the two, at the same time trying to stop the bouncing iBeast and fend off the raging predators. He fails at both. Charles failed to estimate the sheer weight of the metal-covered iBeast, and he is dragged a short distance with it, stumbling onto his back. The raptors, although slowed temporarily because of surprise, eagerly jump onto the prone figure. In sheer panic and adrenaline rush, Charles bursts through the mass of beasts, throwing his sword about in the most unskilled manner, hitting both himself and the velociraptors. Fortunately, the forest ground is sloped, and Charles manages a rolling run down the hill, ignoring his many injuries in blind fear, followed closely by the raptors.

    The Spider Bus Returns

    Charles joins the fighters, swinging aimlessly at the enemy. His blows are inaccurate and wild, but he manages to keep the raptors away from him. He nearly jumps out of his skin when a glowing figure with a sword suddenly appears next to him, attacking a very confused velociraptor. However, instead of retaliating, the raptor runs away, claws in the air. Something about the exchange seems not quite right, as the figure throws down its sword and runs after it. It must know something Charles doesn't. While he's distracted with these happenings, one of the velociraptors jumps on Charles, and tries to claw open his chest. Luckily, that is where the most substantial part of his armor is. A piece of corrugated sheet metal keeps the raptors claws from doing any real damage. Charles swings wildly with his sword, panicking completely. He manages to graze the beast's side and stab its leg, all the while stumbling back towards the bus. The raptor finally off him and retreating momentarily, Charles surveys the battle. The rest of the group appear to be experienced fighters and are doing rather well. At least two have bows, and are landing excellent shots on the raptors. The rest are fighting off those brave enough to advance upon the man with the guitar. Charles takes a moment to catch his breath and think through the situation.

    How large is the group of velociraptors?

    The Spider Bus Returns

    Sitting low in a tree, Charles fends off a couple of the velociraptors that have taken notice of him. He had tried to get behind the pack, but the situation changed dramatically when the beasts got violent and started attacking. The others boarded the bus safely, but Charles opted to get up a nearby tree. He's relieved when the two raptors retreat, and turns to see a robed man playing a beautiful tune on a glowing guitar. The velociraptors are keeping well away from him, and Charles using the chance to jump down and retreat to the bus. There he finds a man lying in blood with a bandaged leg, and several other people (and the hare) preparing weapons. Charles: "What now? Do we drive them off? We could simply escape with this bus of yours. They can't get through the glass."
