  1. Coffee is a brewed drink. Call me crazy but I guess the hot water needs to be hot so that it can be used for brewing (could that by chance be the reason for water used hot as industry standard for brewing?). In my opinion, however, the legal system is often only used for personal enrichment and even endangers areas such as health care, but I really don't want to start an argument here.
  2. In your link it says: "In 1994, a spokesman for the National Coffee Association said that the temperature of McDonald's coffee conformed to industry standards." And that's exactly what I don't understand. A coffee was ordered and a coffee was delivered, no crime so far, as far as I can tell.
  3. I'm sorry, but what exactly is legitimate about this lawsuit? Both, the lawsuit itself and the judgment, are equally incomprehensible to me. And another giant mystery I'm asking you to rank: Trump.
  4. I haven‘t played Geneforge yet, but since movie adaptions of books and games generelly fails terribly (especially in recent times), I think it would be the best not to devaluate the series name by this.
  5. Thank you Randomizer! And sorry for bringing up this topic again, I overlooked the other thread..
  6. Hello everybody, I just wondered if you already know what Jeff is planning to do after the iPad release of the Avernum 3 remake.. or generally asked: where do you get your informations? is there a direct information flow from Jeff to the forums staff? Since I'm a macOS user, I really appreciate the remakes of the older series Following Wikipedia, Blades of Avernum is nearly 14 years old and there are still fans creating scenarios for it.. I strongly believe, that a good game benefits from an extensive and powerful editor. LoL and all of the other clones originated from a mod of Warcraft 3. I haven't played it yet, but I think there are countless fan made extensions for Skyrim. What I'd like to say is that there's an incredible potential in this community, and I really hope that Jeff is considering a new Blades of ... in the near future. What are your thoughts about this topic?
  7. Thank you very much Raptor! When I have some time left, I will continue my search for the exit. Maybe I don't need to reveal your solution, but it's good to know there is a way out. /Edit: last time I played, I must have been too tired..
  8. Hello everyone, since I'm playing Avernum partly with longer interruptions, I've unfortunately forgot the name of the cave.. But I think it's far in the north and there is a cave with a friendly dragon nearby (the one who likes his cats). There are two doors left but I can't open them at the moment (there is one skill point missing) and the entrance where I came from is sealed. When I try to open it, there is a special encounter saying: "You randomly pull the levers and turn the wheels. Nothing happens. You're still trapped, and you will stay that way until you can figure out how to operate these confounding controls." Do I have to restart the game (all of my save games are in this cave) or is there a chance to leave this cave? Thank you very much in advance!
  9. There was something similar on kickstarter some time ago: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/antonyevans/glowing-plants-natural-lighting-with-no-electricit But I think unlike the guys from MIT, they never reached their goal.
  10. I'm very sorry for my late response.. Thank you very much Randomizer, Chessrook44 and Mr.Tic! I think I prefer general damage reduction to some good chances not to get hit. Unfortunately I haven't fully understood the matter with the base yet.. is it good in the case of ARC to have high INT, or is it more expensive to improve it with high INT? How many points in INT (and maybe in Priest Spells) would you recommend me to spend?
  11. Hello everybody, I'm reading the BoA manuel at the moment and playing with the idea of creating a custom character. But before doing so I want to finish "Valley of Dying Things" and clarify some questions. Do I need to spend skill points in DEX if I want to create a tank? If I get it right an appropriate level of MEL is enough to hit enemies with swords. Jeff is speaking of some "advanced skills" like parry.. is there a list of all possible advanced skills available? Furthermore ARC is described as some kind of cumulative group skill, clalculated by this formula: Cost: 1 skill point, Base: INT / 2 But what exactly does "Base" mean? Are these the base costs? So it would be best to train ARC on my tank with complete lack of intelligence. or does it mean I get for example 2 points as a present, spending 4 skill points in INT during character creation? (same question on that regarding DEX on TUS) Would it be theoretically possible to get invulnerable characters when skilling HRD to 100 points? Is the advantage "Elite Warrior" limited to specific kinds of weapons? And does "Natural Mage" effect priest spells too? It says "all of your spells receive bonuses" in the manual, but I think that's limited to mage spells That's a lot of stupid questions, but I am trying to understand the game mechanics before doing some serious faults when creating a character. I would be very happy if some of these questions could be answered.. so thank you very much in advance for your help and one last question.. is it kind of cheating, when playing a scenario twice or more often with the same party? there are many games out there which requires the player to grind content in order to achieve some progress. Is BoA one of these?
  12. Ah, I see.. thank you for the clarification
  13. Oh, that is embarrassing.. but in this case it‘s possibly gotten around already..
  14. Hello everybody, since I‘m reading a lot in these forums lately, I have often come across posts referring to ‚SV‘ and TrueSite.. By chance I visited the forums and found this thread: https://forum.nethergate.net/index.php?p=index.phpQUERYshowtopic=1693 You may know that already, but I was kind of surprised.
  15. I‘ve registered just a couple of hours earlier, but anyway.. welcome orian! Which SW games did you play already? Besides A:EftP and Avadon 2 I mean.

    Congratulations Kelandon! When I registered myself in these forums, you were at 9.999 posts and I was afraid the software wouldn’t work properly (since many forums are dying these days).. but you finally reached 10.000
  17. Ah, I see.. thank you Lilith and Kelandon!
  18. Maybe I can‘t see neigher of these two buttons because I‘m visiting this board on a mobile device or because of my relatively strict browser settings. But if I don‘t run the risk of spoiling someone, I guess that‘s okay
  19. It‘s really amazing to see the fan base creating such awesome content. Especially when considering the age of BoA. I‘m not ready to play fan made scenarios yet, but I‘m really looking forward to it! However, I would still have a question.. you mentioned what will happen to the party (of the first two scenarios of your series) so will all the progress achieved with it be deleted? And another general question.. if I‘m playing scenarios and gain experience and items, will I be able to use them in the official game also?
  20. Ah okay, that‘s what I thought. Thank you Randomizer! <spoiler>I just figured out, that it‘s possible to walk through the magical barriers, maybe I‘ll find a shortcut there. </spoiler> Thank you for the advice with the energy potions, I will sie them very sparingly. That’s good to know.. and I‘m afraid I‘ll fit right in /Edit: I‘m sorry.. are there any tags to hide content like in my first post? I can‘t find the appropriate button when I want to reply.
  21. Hello everybody, I just bought the complete Avernum Trilogy on GoG and started playing BoA. This game is absolutly great, I can‘t even remember the last time a game fascinated me like this I‘m playing the first scenario now and just arrived in the school. But I‘m wondering if I have to leave the dungeon everytime I need to regenerate my casters SP? Since I‘m diving deeper and deeper, I‘m looking for a better way to rest.. can someone help me with that? Thank you and best regards, Lindwyrm
