  1. Just got to Pentil, it seems I was mistaken from my assumption that joining the Obeyers would turn me into a lowly servile and that I have to prostrate myself before my fellow Shapers. Looks like they're trying to secure the island instead and keep the Shaper tradition instead. Me still pondering about the Shaper purist run for a better Shaper ending, should I join them? Or should I abstain myself from actually joining any? (Don't ask me about the obsession with the ending, I want to experience the game completely ;_; )
  2. That's a relief, Matt P's walkthrough also mentioned some Learned Darian somewhere (don't tell me where to find him, no spoilers please) which could greatly help you side with another faction, so my opinions for now won't matter in their convos. Well then, I guess I'll have to balance it out for the most optimal outcome. Thanks guys, that's all for now.
  3. Sounds unpleasant, but I would have explored much of the game already to some limit before I could have joined them, so that sounds reasonable. Has anyone tried the Shaper purist playthrough (e.g. no canisters, no faction, no friends)? If so, will my character fare better in the end? Or will the Shapers punish me for discovering their secrets? I guess it is, but that doesn't mean you won't be greeted with hostility in some factions. More questions though, should I sell my gemstones? Or will I get to use an enchanted anvil later in the game? Also, Matt P.'s guide mentioned something about Ellrah giving a gold key if I have enough leadership, I tried raising that stat to 10 with my remaining SP and the options were still the same. (Currently enjoying this game, and hoping that the remakes would still retain its charm)
  4. Hey guys. I'm currently on my serious Geneforge 1 playthrough and I'm wondering which servile faction should I join for an easier first-time playthrough. I'm also planning on doing a Shaper purist kind of style but that would require me using a minimal amount of canisters and not joining any, but that'll be soon after I this. Spoiler Alert!!! End of Spoiler I'm planning to join the Awakened but that would instantly lock me out of the other factions. I want to explore the game as much as I could without siding with any, yet. Unless I've exhausted the game, then I'll go join a faction and end the game. Regrettably, I've said opinions that would make the Awakened grin from ear to ear, but hey, being stuck in an island with no other hope other than living with natives, your stiff-necked pride won't save you; so I've told them what they'd want to hear, does being inclined to a faction though not joining them give you benefits? Other than making them happy, of course. tl;dr Should I join factions (to make my game easier to explore) early or in the endgame? If so, what faction?
  5. Darkest Dungeon would be my pick, where Spiderweb games make you walk on dungeons, this game steps on your existence and forces you to crawl.
  6. I accidentally overwrote my one and only quicksave with something stupid Oops Generally applies to all games ^^
  7. That happened to me before and it seems like the 'bundle' is treated like a single game. Once opened, you will get the games at an instant, compared to when it's gifted individually; which you can keep all others and open AV:2 for yourself, sadly, Steam's smart enough for that.
  8. I was planning to do it, although it is pretty logical conflicts are unavoidable, like that Kill Platano quest, if so, what other quests conflict with what quest? Spoil me if its truly necessary ;_;
  9. Since I played Geneforge 5 again, I noticed it was a larger game than I have previously thought. Jeff proved me wrong, again. I'm planning to start again, and I'd like to know the best side you can lean on at factions. I do know that Rawal, Alwan = Shapers, Astoria = ??? etc. Is sneaking a viable option? At Unbounds, it may be, since the time you spent killing it is not worth the experience. Also, there are no points for sneaking since it might be used to get the sneak xp then kill the enemies later on, or maybe sneaking is just minor. Is it ok to spread skill points? Or is it better to concentrate them on one section? I'm playing as some sort of Shaper/Agent, and I noticed I've got a decent band of creations, and my leadership and mechanics seemed ok. But since I was rushing through the game, I became lazy and just used my Battle Alphas as cannon fodder so I can pass through the hard parts and just sneak my way. I felt really cheap when I kept healing and relied on the Golems to kill the demonic golem and his master. How do I win without joining? Since you won't be siding with anyone, how do you make that final decision of neutrality?
  10. Still can't drink ale
  11. I have my laptop, been three years since I first unboxed it, nothing more I guess. Aaron the Casul +0 [cannot be ascended] (laptop) Intel HD Graphics 4000 mobile/Intel i5/1.7GHz/4GB ram/500GB HD space One of the treasures granted to the firstborn, it withstood eons of reformatting, installing, uninstalling, free Windows 8.1 upgrades, Steam game downloading, visits to Spiderweb and the occasional playing of Dark Tranquillity music along with a headbang. The filthy casul of the laptop belonged to Aaron, it became his true symbol when he in turn endured the abysmal fathoms of 10-5fps, earning him the title of 5fpswalker The object grants basic internet surfing and casul gaming and general usage
  12. ANYTHING for it, I want a G6 so bad that Jeff can already harvest the salt from my tears to make his own dead sea.
  13. I get this habit of reading threads while barely remembering the title. Feeling this was a goodbye topic, tears almost welled in my eyes so I decided to give Alorael my goodbye-post like. The day after, he changed his name, and posting schedule, yet still posted. Congrats on the residency I guess? Oh. I'm taking my like back.
  14. 1.) Be able to go to UK or Germany to study fencing or something, I've always wanted to roleplay irl, there's also LARP but I want to hold real steel, feel its momentum and stuff 2.) To be able to do well in college, impress my parents and stuff 3.) To reach 10,000 post counts and live long enough to see my achievement 4.) To finally find some source of inspiration I've been longing to make my short fiction stories 5.) To successfully make my dream game based on my short fics
  15. I received my first greeting on my first post. Back then, I didn't know it was a greeting, then I got offended
  16. Avernum, I've only played the first remake, the third in the old trilogy and the sixth. Between the three, the third has been the best because you actually get to explore the surface rather than facing a premature ending where your party lives happily ever after. Plus, it feels so open-world that there's a large variety of enemies to kill, the towns feel like towns, and you can even murder them without a "but they kill you instead" dialogue to interrupt your rampage, in short, it's really large. Worst in between the three, in my opinion would be the sixth, there's the blight and all, but it doesn't feel like there's an actual shortage of food since your characters don't get hungry despite traversing every inch of Avernum, but I've played that last three to four years, I doubt I remember much. Geneforge, the best for me has been the fourth, don't ask me why, it just feels like it. I remember playing the demo before the Steam versions were released and I even made my own house by that uncle shaper guy and even desperately tried to bug the game so that it may open up a locked location. It just feels so cool to be some sort of rebel spy Star Wars thing. The worst had been Geneforge 5, it feels so short to me, like WHY DID IT END ALL OF A SUDDEN, there were so many factions too, even the unexplored Letha province, and your past was still unclear. Dear Jeff, If you're thinking of remaking Geneforge 5, please unlock Letha province, I need more Geneforges Regards
