    Every Spiderweb Character Ranked: Top 20 Worst Characters

    slarty you gotta update this thread too. it's more interesting than the silly rating thread. also you gotta go back and fix every place you said "manifred" instead of "manfred", like you confused the names manfred and winifred

    Avernum EftP v1.1 changelog?

    The EftP changelog hasn't updated, but there's a recent documented change to CS: Version 1.1 - June 4, 2018 Upgrades the game to a 64-bit engine. So I would guess EftP got the same change.
  3. Having a lot of factions is interesting in theory, but unlike in Geneforge where each game is mostly open and you can aid factions depending on your ideological preferences, in the Avadon games you're basically on rails and your options are "do what you are ordered" and "do what you are ordered, but grudgingly". 2 is the only one of them with any sort of actually branching story depending on your choices, and the "branch" essentially amounts to playing through a different map halfway through the game.

    Maybe I'm just burnt out by fantasy RPGs but this sounds so. So generic. I am so tired.

    On the one hand, this is true (Yttrium, Ytterbium, Erbium, Terbium)... on the other hand, is this actually worse than Samarium, named after samarskite, embarrassingly named after a minor Imperial Russian bureaucrat, Vassily Samarsky-Bykhovets?

    Approximately 20 million dead, the population of China wouldn't regain its pre-war population level until well into the 20th century, and you still rate it above Wings, pirates, and Clippy. Rating it above Dickens and Queen is acceptable, however.

    To be fair, Horatian and Juvenalian are Roman satirical modes, while Menippean is Greek and predates the others by centuries. So some overlap is forgivable, I think.

    Well, we can't quite know the exact line of descent of these heresies cuz obviously almost anything the heretics wrote was destroyed. IIRC tho a Bogomilist priest visited northern Italy and southern France to support the Cathars there and, probably, establish a consistent line of ordinations between the two communities. So, the link to Paulicianism per se is somewhat dubious and unknowable (but the Bogomils almost certainly had to have gotten their dualist Gnosticism from SOMEWHERE), but the link Bogomilism -> Catharism is known, and Waldensianism was founded in Occitania at the height of the Cathar heresy, so influence and cross-pollination is likely. Modern "Waldensians" are just Calvinists, tho.
