Tess is evil. Very evil. Because... Destiny/Rambaldi OTP. It's so many kinds of wrong. I think I'll go whimper in the corner now.
Today was a fun video game day. I beat Quest for Glory I with my magic user, Neville. It was funny. By the end, it was all "Cheetaur? I KEEL YOU DEAD? Goblin? ACK! RUN AWAY!" Not because goblins are particularly tough. No, simply because they CRASH THE GAME. Why do I always have one character with huge crashy problems?
After that, I started a fighter character. Who I named Swordy. He's kinda fun. The way he gets through puzzles is, well, he solves his problems with violence. Need to get a ring out of a tree? The thief climbs the tree, the magic user casts Fetch and the fighter... the fighter throws rocks at it. :p Plus, he has a sword, which kills things SO much better than a dagger.
I got kinda bored of that though, because I'd already played the basic story recently with Neville. So I installed QfG II and imported Grig (my thief). It's interesting working with a text parser, I must admit. Also, I HATE THE STREETS IN THAT CITY! I am going to be so PERMANENTLY lost. It took me all of the day just to find the money changer so I can actually buy supplies from the merchants.
I also discovered that Avernum 4 is out! :D I don't like the Avernum remakes as much as the original Exile series, but this is still really exciting because there never was an Exile 4. This is all new story! The single most exciting fact is that the creator finally realized that making people pay gold for training was a royal pain. I mean, it added a certain element of realism, but it also added an element of going to the character editor to get more money. :p
Skills ranged in gold cost from 10 for a level of skill with a given weapon to 250 for a level of mage spells. Your average goblin gives around five gold. You have six party members (four in the remakes).
Starting to see the problem?
But now the problem is gone and I am a happy Ewok! :D
Oh, and Goblins
finally updated. It was worth the wait, too. DIES HORRIBLY WAS IN IT! DIES HORRIBLY WAS IN IT!
