  1. Essence Blade isn't temporary. Didn't you Betatest? You should know this.
  2. A similar question that has been annoying me; As recently as G3, it is mentioned that Terrestia is only one of two continents ruled by Shapers. Well, what the hell is happening to the other continent during the war? They sending any help, or just ignoring it all? Do they have their own Shaper Council, and can they een communicate and trade due to the war? Or has Jeff just ret-conned away an entire continent.
  3. The fact that I reached lvl 40 with my Singleton Agent, and managed to kill my first unbound, without taking a single step into Mera proves that a singleton Servile with focused Melee could very likely handle the Eyebeast in Lerman's Pass.
  4. Just did it with my Agent, Lvl 44. Have gone through about half of Stormplains, not entered Rebel-lands except to pick up an amulet and Black Pearl Talisman. I find Agent to be far easier to play than a Shaper, and I am considering writing small walkthrough about it. I did it with two Rotdhizons, buffed. Just lured the eye outside of his room, then ganked him with the Rots in a corner, and my Agent just healed their damage.
  5. Sod - Such a classy guy that he's a class of his own.
  6. No, I haven't been to Gazaki-Uss yet. I'v pretty much just gotten to Stormhold, and the areas around it. I have around 700 Essence, around 550 which is bound up by three creations. Perhaps I should make more, less powerful creations than stick with a few, powerful (and steadily gaining more power) ones? My tactic has worked in every game so far, but alas, I feel that you may be correct. So many rule changes require a new way of handling things. I will try the cheap tactic - Making Charged Thads and bumrushing everything, then approach with my regular force. ..And no, I most certainl
  7. I would have to say in G2, when you adopt the swamprat as an ally. Just so hilarious to have a giant rat as your only companion, and watch it slay armored humans. Plus, it's hella' cute.
  8. I haven't found a single object necessary for creating Artifacts so far (Solified Flame, Unmelting ice, etc), even though they may be in those areas that I as of yet can't handle (all Unbound areas, Western Pass, etc. Basicly, my creations are too weak)
  9. I'm on my way south, but It's a painful trip and I keep running into hard spots wherever I go. I don't have any ghlaaks. since I don't use Magic Shaping. I'v never had a need in previouse games to mix and match diffrent aspects of shaping, and I wonder if this is truely necessary in G5 aswell.
  10. It seems I keep lagging behind. I have made my way into the Storm Plains, and cleared all zones around Stormhold. Playing a shaper, I now got a new Battle Alpha (though it isn't very effecive) and two plated Clawbugs, both around lvl 40. However, this clearly isn't enough. Everywhere I go there's creations that are almost too much to handle. Those damn lightning-spraying dinos have just popped up in some zones, and on Torment they are too much for me to handle without some seriously cheap tacticts (they two-shot my creations), even the cryoas in Western Pass were a pain in the ass. Is
  11. Ah, good, good. Just have to call my sister in Holland and ask her about her streetaddress (she payed for it, and listed her address ofcourse, haha)

What kind of roleplaying game would Geneforge be if it didn't allow you to roleplay a foolish extremist powermonger? And that just made my day.
  13. I'v already payed for the game for my Macintosh, but I'd like to have it on my PC laptop aswell. So, do I need to pay for it again, or simply e-mail Jeff? My serial number is obviously not the same, so if I download the game again for my Mac, what do I do?
  14. Seems to me that having seven creations would seriously impair your leveling-abillity. Poison and Acid has been severly boosted aswell (though this works for your own party also, since Clawbug venom now do real damage)
  15. I always play Geneforge on Torment, no matter what class or what game. And it has always been easy enough, in fact it has been a breeze. From Geneforge 2 up to 4 I could pretty much clean house with my solo agent, only ever making meatshields when a 'boss-battle' was nearby. As a Shaper, I only used one (1!) creation, buffed it to the max, and backed it up with mental magic. It worked fine throughout all the games up till the end-game, when I created an army and just slaughtered everything. Sure, it required some tacticts and hit-and-run methods, but it wasn't HARD. I always tried to play as
