Yep. Rand plays Heavy. Almost exclusively.

And he always plays on 2Fort. :smallyuk: I hate 2Fort.

Has anyone else played both versions? When I played the PC version at a friend's house, it seemed to move a lot faster. Everything was all... twitchy. Anyone else notice this?

I've been practicing with Sniper, and i've gotten good with a Pyro, as well as Demoman, even if I rarely play Demoman.

As for 2fort, I like all the maps, its just that I play that the most for some reason. :smalltongue:

I have no problem with them achieving their intended target, it's that they do it too well.

They're too fast to shoot at long or short range, they can circle strafe around anything with a bat and kill it easy, they can leap right into most spawns on independent maps... The only things with any shot at killing the darn things are Pyros and a level 1 Sentry Gun at a fair distance.

That, or a cheat, like aimbots.

But what the hell is this world coming to?

Blow the universe into nothingness
Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We all shall die

Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast
Armageddon is here, like said in the past

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We all shall die

Soon to fill our lungs the hot winds of death
The gods are laughing, so take your last breath

Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

Fight fire with fire x8
Fight!

1) Try reading the system requirements usually listed on the back of the box
2) Get as MUCH RAM as possible! My laptop has 4 gigs, and it handles inkscape AND Vista extraordinarily well. :smallbiggrin:

Threeshades
2008-10-17, 05:39 AM
mine has 2 GB ram. It also gets the inkscape stuff done. The only thing where it ever slowed down, was when i was making the 300 pic.

oh and sometimes when opening load/save windows, those often take an awful lot of time for some reason.

TF2 runs as smoothly as the PC version goes.

green-shirt Q speaks about the game then they hear somebody sig a sad song they then see a drow executer about to kill the singing (another drow) but then he starts to cry and keep sayng "that was beautiful" then the other drow says that he is a multiclass bard/wizard named Dorou. then green-shirt Q says "why does he use a instead of e" (he do use a instead of e) the drow executer then yell that it was beautiful, Dorou then says "woah I didn't avan usa a spell"

Keveak, you already have an undeveloped and kind of strange character with seemingly no reason for appearance... You don't need another, especially if he comes at such a random time... That song didn't sound very sad... Why isn't the executioner doing his thing? I'm just confuzzled... And... Right when another character appears?.....?

Yes, but the formula for a developed character is

Failing that,
2) Backstory comic (either separate thread from ABR or done in a few canon comics)

Wait, you pass ALL the criteria.

@^ I don't understand Gremlin at all really. As far as I can tell , he's some kind of (zombie?) magical cat.. thing.

Huh, I always thought Lying was the only Arcanian character in Abr, I think it was better that way to.

Regrettably, no.
I decided that I'd come from Arcania a while ago, when I was still a god-modding fool. I thought it'd be cool.
And for the record, I haven't god-modded in ages.
Anyways, The Gremlin (also known as 'Nilmerg Eht, because I needed to come up with a reason he'd have a name like 'The Gremlin' when he was not a gremlin at all) is an Arcanian, though if I'd had another chance I would have made that different. He was exiled, for reasons that will be explained in my backstory comic. He got killed, again in circumstances that will be explained in my backstory comic, and Ovu Monobi took his body, made him into a zombie, and gave him a small replica of his mask, which gave him sentience and much power.

The character I'm thinking of Re-entering ABR with
The Vendetta was created as a result of collaboration between the greatest Mages and Engineers in Avbroy. Everything, from the weapons, to the shields, to the crew quarters is the pinnacle of something. Ven is one of those pinnacles. Designed by Scitzotech engineers with the help of dwarven artificers, Ven is possibly the most intresting thing (to an engineer anyway) onboard.
Ven’s creation arose out of necessity, With so many different technologies incorporated into the Vendetta, how could anybody expect to understand the systems well enough to maintain and repair them. The ship would require a large number of repairmen, many of whom would need an in-depth knowledge of the ships systems. The Vendetta’s original creators also realized that training this man people meant that knowledge of the ships systems could get out, making it a security risk. The solution was to create Ven.
Ven is probably best described as a Hive Mind, in fact he is a construct, though he looks more like a really big box. Ven is capable of building and controlling small constructs called “Dettas” which are capable of performing various menial tasks aboard the Vendetta. Dettas are fairly unintelligent, and the complexity of the tasks they are able to perform depends on how much Ven is concentrating on that particular Detta. Most of what the Dettas do is pretty basic stuff, hauling things from place to place and the like, although specialist Dettas can conduct repairs and even fight. Ven himself communicates by projecting an illusion from specially designed “Projector” Dettas. These illusions show a human wearing a dark cape and hat. Ven has a complete knowledge of all the Vendetta’s systems, and could theoretically rebuild the entire thing (If given enough time and materials. A LOT of time and even more materials, very very expensive ones).
When Threeshades captured the ship she placed an enchantment on Ven forcing him to do nothing not programmed in his prime orders (Maintain and repair the ship). She also has her troops guarding him in central engineering, and has destroyed all projector and solider Dettas just to be safe.
Pictured below are the most common varieties of Detta (and Ven himself):
http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w27/bloddyredcommie/Venny-1.png
1: Ven
2: Basic Detta and Basic Detta carrying a box
3: Solider Detta
4: Repair Detta
5: Projector Detta.

He could theoretically build an army of Solider Dettas, but if he tried to control too many at one time they would be fairly useless.

The Mage Wars was the culmination of a magical arms race that ended up being explosively violent. Very explosively.

The causes of the Great Cataclysm are largely a mystery, because no one who witnessed them survived. Some details of the Cataclysm will be revealed in Nobody's backstory.

Let me think...

A number of underground civilizations (including dwarves, moon elves, and drow) survived, although there were a great many casualties due to cave-ins and the like.

Helina survived somehow because of the Super-Confusing TimeSkipTM.

The City of Wind survived due to its desert location, although it too would have suffered considerable damage.

Other civilizations far from the Eternal Valley survived as well.

Any survivors would have thought that they had lived through an enormous earthquake. Those aboveground might have witnessed a great white light in the southwest sky, and a burst of intensely hot, extremely fast winds.

Hm, main thing I was wondering about was the video card (ATI x1200) and whether it would affect game play too much. (want to ask for it for christmas and birthday)

If you're going to get a new video card, I'd recommend a GeForce 9 series. nVidia tends to be better (if only slightly, and not always) than ATI, and the naming system they use isn't needlessly complicated.

Some more alucardian shadow demons, anyone? :smallbiggrin:

Quick comic up!

Alright, when I said he communicates through the projector Detta's I mean that's how he usually talks. First of all they let him convey information visually, also they have components that make them much better at deciphering language. When he tries to talk through another type of Detta it takes more effort, so he usually uses the Projector Dettas for conversation. The Moon Elves didn't know he could talk through the regular Dettas, and couldn't take all those out anyway (since they are needed to keep the ship running)

Edit: That particular Detta was heading back to central engineering after having fed the Kilroy.

Just something I wrote down while bored in history class that I touched up a little when I got home:

Guinoid Racial Traits


+2 Con, -2 Str: Their icy cold homeland has conditioned the Guinoids to be hardy people, but their hollow bone structure has made unable to exert great strength.
Medium: As Medium creatures, guinoids have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
A guinoid's base land speed is 20 feet; their web feet and waddling gait makes them move awkwardly slow on land.
A guinoid's base swim speed is 40 feet; despite their appearance, Guinoids are incredibly graceful underwater. A guinoid has a +8 racial bonus on any swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. A guioind can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. A guinoid can use the run action while swimming, provided he swims in a straight line.
Low-Light Vision: A guinoid can see twice as far as a human in starlight, moonlight, torchlight, and similar conditions of poor illumination. He retains the ability to distinguish color and detail under these conditions.
Hold Breath (Ex): A guinoid can hold his breath for a number of rounds equal to 6 X its Constitution score before he risks drowning.
Cold Tolerant: Guinoids gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against cold damage and cold effects. Guinoids can also exist in conditions between -20 and 90 F without having to make Fortitude saves.
+2 racial bonus on Jump checks made to dive into water.
+2 racial bonus on Hide, Listen and Spot checks when Underwater
Automatic Languages: Common. Bonus Languages: Elven, Gnome, Dwarven, Draconic, Tajiran, Aquan
Favored Class: Wizard. A multiclass guinoid’s wizard class does not count when determining whether he takes an experience point penalty for multiclassing.

Okay, now Keveak's gonna bomb all of you. But a threat is normally not a lie unless you are evil, so Roka is evil.

Use grammer! And stop using the faces! When you do it too often and without meaning it's annoying! :smallmad:

No... Your dude had a sigel activated only if his head was screwed off. As soon as I'm at -10, my whole body would blow up. Of course, none of my characters have the means to do so, except maybe Sorcerer Lich Dude.

I would rather have the guy who killed me die in an explosion than risk the chance that he would get away because he didn't touch my body.
Also, why/how would anyone be specified a friend or foe.

Also, how did your bard/wizard die from one hit with a halberd or whatever? can't have dealt too much damage.

well he didn't have a spell doing that. his friends are Keveak, Bill and Duaf(he aint in any comics). he has been starving and tortured for weeks so his hp was low plus the halberd was magical

EDIT: can we end it now he's gone and will not come back (just a suggestion(not the spell))

Many things:
1. Threeshades cannot afford/does not trust her soldiers enough to have all of them carry magic equipment. It is rare; the only reason adventurers carry it is because they are so frickin' rich. Think about dragons. They horde all the gold their kobolds mine and have tons of money. If an adventurer kills a dragon (which many cannot), they get all of that money, They are rich.

2. Keveak is double posting.

3. Keveak is not using proper grammar.

4. Keveak is not reading the archive and does not understand the setting. I've noticed that over half of his intended canon comics are now non-canon. At least think of plausibility before you post. You've changed your backstory at least 5 times, and you keep doing strange things. I wouldn't want to deliver an amulet to a stranger if their head blew up in my hands. 3S, throw the amulet into the garbage compactor.

5. Icedragons, I'm sure the Vendetta would have some measure of detect invisibility; the creaters are clearly very thoughful and consider every possibility. It's probably heat sensors, wind sensors, magic sensors, light sensors, and all that stuff. It'd probably be pretty hard to fool. Maybe if you used an aerodynamic wafer-thin air-temperature mundane ship, you could get in. You'd have to not be using any magic on yourself, though, and you'd have to be tiny.

Wrong. The Vendetta has blindsense receptors. Those work exactly like the blindsense ability.

Blindsense (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/specialAbilities.htm#blindsightAndBlindsense) isn't perfect, and it usually doesn't have a very long range. I think it would be reasonable for my character to make it on board, although probably with some damage.

Of course! Keveak only speaks Latin! It's so clear now! :smallbiggrin:
Seriously, Keveak, Threeshades's comic is funny. You're the one who killed the guy, and stole her singing entrance, so you should face the consequences.
Also, have a look at Rule 11, Rule 9, Rule 10 and Rule 6 in the art thread. Ahem:



Rule 6: NO SHOWBOATING! in Improv every member is trying to make the rest of the ensamble look good, not to try to make themselves look good. You can still do awsome things, but don't completally overshadow everybody else.


Rule 9: Don't finish lethal or incredibly dehabilitating attacks against other PC's, start them and give the other person a chance to react, its not "I cut your head off", its "I try to cut your head off", it's up to them whether or not you succeed.


Rule 10: accept weakness, we are not all superman, we are not all invincible, its no fun if nobody loses anything.


Rule 11: Get over yourself, there are other people in this plot to, so don't plan more then one post ahead and then get mad when people don't feel like going with what you want them to do, I don't care how awesome it seems.
@TND; Love the comic! I think that Rorka or whatever her name is should have only been dealt the minimum (7 damage) :smallbiggrin:
