  1. Aaaand he's back! Welcome back @Aarik D! Hope you pick up your old handle.

  2. Hi, since Swift Flurry always procs attack rolls that are done with the main hand even if the offhand triggered it (see Sun & Moon in offhand and Battle Axe with Bleeding Cuts in main hand: lots of Bleeding Cuts from Swift Flurry without the recovery malus) I thought I'd give it a shot* and try if that also works with a ranged weapon in the main hand (and a melee weapon in the offhand obviously). And it does! Forget the times when you thought you couldn't use Fire in the Hole with Swift Flurry - you can! It even seems that Swift Flurry/Heartbeat Drumming procs from the range

  3. has been a long time since we had any exposure to this, so am hopeful somebody more knowledgeable corrects what we assume will be multiple errors. aryan migration/invasion is kinda an explanation for the linguistic commonalities 'tween european, middle-eastern and asian languages, and we are talking 'bout hypothesized events more than 1200 bc. is more o' a semantics issue than anything. if you migrate into places where folks already is having established cultures, then some modern and socially conscious persons, absent any evidence, will wanna call it an invasion. is not a com

  4. I voted yesterday. There was a short wait but no biggie. For President I voted for Jorgensen of course. And no it was far from a “wasted” vote. The winner of the electoral votes of my state is an absolute foregone conclusion. A vote for Trump or Biden would’ve been wasted. Not that I would ever cast my vote for either of them. On the other hand every single vote that Jorgensen receives is invaluable. Not because it will make her president. That is mathematically impossible. But every vote the Libertarian candidate receives improves the standing of the Libertarian party, improves their process

  5. Old thread... https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/119010-politics-2020/ So, was it an Aryan invasion or migration???

  6. The people of the Indus-Valley civilization may have a different opinion Since the Aryans moved through there (not particularly peacefully) and settled in what is modern day Iran (the Iranians being the descendants of the ancient Aryans) Edit: I've been told Iranians gets annoyed when ignorant people call them "Arabs" (which they aren't). Is this still a thing or are people better educated today than they were 30 years ago???

  8. Firstly, I hope that all at Obsidian affected by the fires in California are safe and sound. That said, I made a post for the 0.3.0 PTB that as of that version, I was having immediate CTD situations, and could find no workaround. The patch launched and the problem persisted. None of the subsequent hotfixes remedied this problem, but I was very hopeful that after about a month of not even being able to launch the game, this would be resolved. Imagine my sadness upon downloading the current PTB and finding that the situation is, in fact, still present. I've checked all drivers and whatnot,

  9. It was a migration, there are clear differences between the words " invasion " and " migration" But what a strange way to describe the arrival of white people in the USA when it comes to the actual events of history ...no wonder there is so much misinformation from certain elements within groups like BLM where people literally dont know one historical statue from another and think the history of a country like the USA is founded only on negative developments like slavery and oppression

  10. Just a few pet peeves and suggestions. When I heard signs were added in 0.3, I had assumed that they would allow for labeling. Unfortunately, it seems that the signs are instead merely posters and pictures. As someone who likes to organize their items by type (plants, minerals, body parts, crafted resources, tools, weapons, armor, etc.), the ability to label these places would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps sprig and clover leaf signs you write on with sap? I like to explore caves and tunnels, but something I find strange about them is that entering them spontaneously lowers the bri

  11. Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. I reached Alabastra, the last large area of the main game. It looks nice (aurora borealis and walls of ice), the pacing is good and for some reason (a skill or an item or a Twist of Fate I did not notice) coins drop when hit opponents. So far so good.

  13. Tested a bit further and it seems that even special procs from the melee weapon get triggered by Fire in the Hole's AoE if it gets used by Swift Flurry. At least I see a LOT of Extinction Events from Sungrazer going off whe I use it as my melee weapon in the offhand. Phew...

  14. Students are tested on Social Science in 8th grade, and the test breakdown was pretty much 4 questions on 6th grade content, 3 questions on 7th, and 4 questions on 8th grade content. It has actually shifted quite a bit in the last few years and is no longer the silly multiple guess format. I also teach in an area with a lot of parent involvement and it is predominately Asian, so I am spoiled by not having to really worry about the test scores. I have taught in lower socio-economic schools and it matches that clip from The Wire to a tee.

  15. I think those are pretty conservative bonuses and fit the design of having to rest less often. Is the +1 phrase increasing the +1 Max phrase count? Is the focus for Cipher Max and starting focus? I think those would be strong. Currently +Max Power Pool effects are totally weird. How much of a lift would it be to recode those effects to give some version of the above? AFAIK, they don't work this way (totally worthless for casters, chanters, etc.)

  16. Inspired Defense feels mostly okay as is to me. Maybe increase to 4 seconds? The drawback of it changing w/ another type of DMG still applies at 4 seconds, so it doesn't make it too strong, but guarantees it remaining up if you keep getting hit by one DMG type consistently. Spell Resistance @ 15% seems fine to me. I'm assuming spell resistance works like Hit conversion, where all the effects apply independently, rather than being added up, which helps to reduce the value of stacking this with other kinds.

  17. Definitely. The choice of using bows has been pretty much eradicated as of late (which sucks, as I absolutely LOVE using bows.) I wish they would make bows an actual choice.

  19. Liked that and Psych a lot, they were both on/came out around the same time on USA (the network). Ultimately, they are just silly detective shows of which there are about a billion of, but having good humor and non-totally contemptible characters and writing goes a long way, . Sailor Moon update: I'm halfway through the first season, it's unbelievably dumb, and I'm officially in love with it, . I didn't think the first anime show I loved would be...this, of all things. It's an absolutely hilarious and adorable show.

  20. Watched Raised by Wolves. 3/4 of it was good, 1/4 of it was garbage. This whole religious stuff got tired in the end. Also suddenly it went from sci-fi to "magic," which also sucked.

  21. That scene managed something very impressive. It took a joke that always makes me smile because I usually enjoy old, worn out jokes no matter how cliché they have become and made me facepalm. So Stamets is in the Jeffries tube, lying on the floor bleeding out while trying to fix the ship and Dr. Culber comes to them and he's supportive of his husband and says something like: "You need to fix this so I can get you out of there and kill you." Ha ha. Nah, that situation is way too dumb for that Hugh. Sorry. Oh, and cleaning blood. Jesus. Engineering Lady talks about someone cleaning th

  22. I think it's less that they heal and more that they simply... forget the damage you inflicted on them. My guess is that the passive state doesn't actually keep track of their HP; likely to reduce processing time, so when an arthropod exits agro and becomes passive again it simply... forgets that it isn't at full health.

  23. I liked Minsc when I was younger (ie. when BG and BG2 were released). Nowadays I usually take Kivan or Valygar instead.

  24. Baldur’s Gate III: The Black Hound. Icewind Dale and NWN2 + expansions are probably my favorite incarnations of FR, I like how Black Isle and Obsidian, and Sawyer as a game director, approaches the setting and thought BG3 sounding very interesting, even though using the BG name was a bit if a cop out. And even after the game was canceled, I wish Josh had had the time ( / had been allowed?) to finish the NWN2 module he was working on.

  25. Binsc and Moo is the real trawling that went down recently ... leave it to the French to create Boo as a space hamster who controls giant rats named Moo ... but considering the French do satire with puppets on TV I shouldn't be surprised. I am leaving this comment vague because not sure I want to admit I played and beat The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk: Amulet of Chaos ...

  26. Well you can do Watcher's Keep fresh out of Chateau Irenicus (at least up to the Gauntlets of Extraordinary Specialization, farther if you don't mind cheese and rest spamming), and Kundane/Belm is available fairly early. Even with only the normal haste and prior to the final attack per round bonus you can trounce everything and it only gets better from there, and a party size of three or four characters makes sure you dip into HLA level... well, well before the Underdark. Fighter/Mages are better, sure. Whether it is your old buddy Koveras or a home made Kensai/Mage dual class, or even a

  27. Hi, I was recently looking into this same behavior while playing the game for the first time, and I thought I would share what I discovered here in the most relevant existing thread. There are also some other online discussions that mentioned how experience gain would be greatly diminished for characters further down in the list of inactive party members. I was looking at the Assembly-CSharp.dll file, according to another post I had found, and I noticed what I believe is a minor error in the code. It seems the game is intended to give inactive party members 90% experience if they are equa

  28. @Aarik D is kinda like Gromnir kryptonite. oh sure, we may have made a crack or two 'bout ska, (am not made o' stone dammit,) but aarik is just so adorably positive that any attempt to give him a hard time woulda' been analogous to kicking a puppy. as such am unable to interact with aarik normal. am glad aarik is back. we will wait. we will be patient. eventually aarik will slip up and mock the special olympics or suggest ketchup is a perfect acceptable condiment for hot dogs. have been here for decades. we can wait for our moment. mostly kidding. mostly. wb.
