  1. I think that the Grill/ Shed area across the pond could really use an update. Here are some ideas I have for the place: Grill Area The ash-lands. Surrounding the grill there could be a burnt area called the ash-lands. This would be a barren place with no vegetation; no creatures; and no water or food (except for the chicken bone, which I will get to later.) This place could be very useful, as you would have to cross it to get to the grill, and there would be some important resources there. One of these resources would be pieces of charcoal, which could be broken apart by a tier two hammer. These pieces could be used to make a tier three hammer (and maybe an oven and upgraded farms.) You could also find chicken bones there. Break them apart with a tier two/ tier three tool, and you will get chicken fat (which could be used as food, and maybe even as an ingredient for candles/ candelabras!) and bone shards, which would be useful for an armor I will talk about later. Top-of-the-grill-goodies. After crossing the ash-lands, you could parkour your way up the side of the grill. Up on the top, you could find old hot dog bits, some raw science, and maybe a SCA.B scheme called "Smoky." Shed Area These are my ideas for how the shed could become the next big area in Grounded. I'll only share a few of them for now, for the sake of time. Mice. these tough creatures would be found on the floor of the shed. They would be very agile and strong, so people would probably need tier three gear to survive the fight. The resources they drop would would be very useful, though. Things like mouse skin (which you could use two of to make mouse leather,) Mouse fuzz, and mouse ears. You could also find mice droppings around, which could be used for upgraded farms. Resources. There would lots of random items found in the shed, usually in hard to reach places (more on that later.) One thing could be coils of string. You would need a tier two or tier three axe to cut it, breaking it into string fibers (or something like that, I haven't really decided on the name yet,) which you could then use two of at a workshop to make simple rope. You could also find glue chunks lying around in the shed. You would need a tier two/ three hammer to break it. You could then use the glue globs with something like chicken fat or mouse skin to make mega armor glue, for tier three armors and such. Parkour. To find resources like the string and glue, which would be high up on shelves, you would need to do some parkour. Jumping from tools to shelves to climbing up wires, eventually you would reach the very top. The top shelf could have anything from a Burgl chip to more story parts to even a boss enemy! The possibilities are vast. I also think it's worth mentioning an armor I thought of that uses the mouse parts and bone shards- Scavenger mask: 1x bone shards, 1x mouse ear, 2x mouse fuzz, 1x simple rope (Armor bonus- Sneaking speed) Scavenger chest-piece: 2x mouse leather, 1x bone shard, 2x simple rope (Armor bonus- Sneaking speed) Scavenger knee-guards: 2x bone shards, 1x mouse fuzz, 1x simple rope (Armor bonus- Sneaking speed) Full set bonus (Leftover bounty)- When breaking something or pulling the parts off of something, high chance to get one or two extra pieces Those are all my ideas for a grill/ shed update. I would love to hear some feedback!
  2. GLITCHES: If you drop grass planks in areas with water texture they fall through the world, ants can take stuff out of storage boxes that shouldn't be accessible to them at all, larva have a huge spawn rate, ants and lady bugs spawn inside rocks and underneath water, armor dummy's allow you to sometime dup armor and dummy's also glitch amor pieces which switches them to a different type (spider and ladybug head changed to acorn), anything with a lunge attack can faze through walls and into buildings SUGGESTIONS: amor and weapons equipped shouldn't take up invatory space or ability to get a tier 2/3 backpack, drop stack or trade option, sort invatory option, bigger party size, ability to "pin" armor like you can items so it auto equips when picked up, a way to use grass planks (once base is built they just lay scattered around with no use) or let us "scrap" them for even plant fiber It's an amazing game and I'm really enjoying myself I really hope this game makes it
  3. Hello folks, I'm interested in your best and/or most fun party composition(s). Maybe even just one multiclass you had massive fun with. Just write down your comp/class and why it was so good/fun to play for you. Maybe someone is willing to share his/her experiences ? Greetings Dyxx
  4. Goodmorrow to you my lovelies! I have been pondering about builds for a while and started about 5-10 topics to get ideas. I have finally come to a conclusion and would love to hear your thoughts about it. It is also partly for role playing as in that they're basically 5 bodies shared by one person so the same name etc. Kind of like a hive mind. They will all be human. And fill the roles of https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FiveManBand Mike One: The Leader Shieldbearer/Troubadour. Sword and Board: Tank. Mike Two: The Lancer Streetfighter/Forbidden Fist. Rapier and Stiletto. Flanker. Mike Three: The Big Guy Devoted/Berserker. Dual wield Battle Axes. DPS. Mike Four: The Smart Guy Psion/Wizard. Rod, AOE. Mike Five: The Chick Lifegiver/Eothas. Hunting Bow, Healer What do you all think about the weapons and class combinations? I'd highly prefer to not stack any classes nor have a ranger in there. Thanks in advance and have a lovely day! I'm getting desperate for a comment after hitting so many views :D feel free to shut it down if you disagree with the builds as well!
  5. Since we have now a few "What game would you like to see?" - topics I thought we could start this topic: There is a lot of talk about stories gamers don't like (biggest offender: "i was bored!"), but where there also any stories you would've liked to rewrite, just because they didn't live up to their full potential? If yes, why and how? Rules for this thread: - Name the game. - Write what problems the story had. - Write your suggestions. - Hopefully have fun writing them. - Profit. I will start with Dragon Age: Origins (and hope you've played this one). While not a bad game, the first Dragon Age bores me to death. The main reason is that the story gets really uninteresting after the origins, because I didn't played my origins character but a Grey Warden from that point on. Thing is: I never got a real idea what a Warden supposed to be. Sure, we got to know Duncan and Alistair, but the infos we got out of them were minimal at best (and let's be honest, Alistair isn't a credit to his order). So the connection to our order was mostly nonexisting and Ferelden really didn't live up to it's potential as a "barbaric" nation. So what could they have changed? Answer: Put the game in the northern nation of Andersfels. Why? - It's the homecountry of the Grey Wardens and their HQ could have been a nice hub. - The nation is very poor and it's king has only power in it's capital, which could have been a good explanation why the farmers depend on the Grey Wardens, with whom the King has some political tensions. - It's close to Tevinter and the Qunari, so the game could have introduced us to these nations, without stretching the plausability of the setting (I mean the mages came down to the south of Ferelden, just for a few slaves. You could have those cheaper, buddies^^). - Killing the king of Anderfels wouldn't have changed as much, as crowning the new King of Orzamar, because Anderfels is a very desolate country. - I could have an explanation why everyone is a Grey Warden and why they are immune to the poisonous blood of the Darkspawn, which was a thing ... at the beginning of the game. Okay, that's for the setting, how about the structure of the story? I would keep the "one adventure per location" - structure of the original, but would have burned down the smaller City after the halfpoint of the game, to raise the stakes. The players should feel a connection to the people living there, before I kill everyone. The role of the main-antagonist should also be divided between - The King of Anderfels (doesn't want to lose his crown and values the independence of his people) - The Grandmaster of the Grey Wardens (wants tighter controls on everything and turn the Grey Wardens in some kind of private army of the chantry and kill pagain traditions that might have survived the centuries). So I wouldn't change as much, just details to tighten up everything a bit and give the player more room to identify which the organisation he's supposed to be part of.
  6. Can't wait to encounter this henchmen/women in questmode legendary. Should be fun. ^^
  7. I got a solid 18 hours out of this game which is about 5 more than I got out of Bioshock Infinite (which was $60) so I'm satisfied. I made 2 or 3 characters to figure out how to play the game, then went with an elven ranger. When I died, at least half of my party was level 5, about 14-15 hours into the game. I was being pretty careful to sweep town centers for quests and thought I was handling what I was coming across pretty well, with one out of area exception I managed to run from (tons of drakes coming from the craters). After a short questline and a battle where I brought some research papers to the compass, I returned to town to find a bunch of clockwork golems of one kind or another had taken over the area. I thought I might be able to walk away from it, but doing so seemed too stupid and disingenuous to the spirit of the game, so I went in to the building and tried to clear it. My party had nothing that I could throw at them. Once I had a party member drop, I was stuck, because of course you know, no man gets left behind. I tried a number of different techniques to split up the enemy, but at the end, I was too low on spells and health and one isolated creature wiped my four remaining characters. So here are my problems with the game for hardcore: Can't retreat from areas during combat. Too many enemies have non-sense run speeds. Can't abandon a party member even when rescue is hopeless. Enemies can't be coaxed around the map AND NPCs won't move to help you. The combination is these silly, isolated battles within earshot of one another. All together, the play feels like I'm in a straight jacket. This game has about zero replay value because everything spawns the exact same way. That's all fine. I was having a ball. I just don't understand why you would bother with a hardcore setting at all when the game is clearly no set up for it without reading spoilers and running from urgent plot points. Like I said, I had a good time with the game. The 15 hours I played continuously with my character were good. I'm just not going to run at this thing again until I look up some mods or something to fix it. Have fun.
  8. I don't see any where to add just random things you come across in the game so decided to start one. I was relaxing and just clicking on various NPCs when I ran across Meredith in one of the inns in Defiance Bay. Not much of a conversation but I did a double take. To be continued.

  10. I just felt like a bit a brief reviewing of all the games and expansions that have been released this year (and more are on the way - I will have to get back on them in this thread later). As I go first, I've decided to pick a format that was standard in the classic game magazines of the 80s. In particular, I'll borrow a few concepts from Zzap64!, which I adored. In order for me to review the games, I reckoned that my playtime needed to be at least 8 hours (like a day of playing it). However, a drawback is that some of the games have endings that are tens or hundreds of hours away, so this means I haven't seen everything in them yet. Well, here are the concepts that I'll be grading them with, using percentages, 0 being awaful, 100 being absolutely excellent: Hookability (fun gameplay and depth) Lastability (including replayability) Entertainment value (the passive fun-aspect of the game: How fun was it to watch, read and listen to) Out of these three, I'll calculate a mean value and call that the overall score. I won't rate them on graphics, sound or value for money. I'll rate the games in order of my playing them this year. Might & Magic X: Legacy Hookability: 78 Lastability: 79 Entertainment value: 75 D3 Reaper of Souls: Hookability: 81 Lastability: 82 Entertainment value: 72 Thief: Hookability: 58 Lastability: 68 Entertainment value: 67 Goat Simulator: Hookability: 28 Lastability: 14 Entertainment value: 48 The Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure: Hookability: 63 Lastability: 58 Entertainment value: 77 Wolfenstein: The New Order: Hookability: 67 Lastability: 66 Entertainment value: 70 The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2: Hookability: 73 Lastability: 76 Entertainment value: 70 Company of Heroes 2: Western Front Armies: Hookability: 87 Lastability: 86 Entertainment value: 67 Divinity: Original Sin: Hookability: 84 Lastability: 82 Entertainment value: 82 Wasteland2: Hookability: 81 Lastability: 87 Entertainment value: 84 Endless Legend: Hookability: 80 Lastability: 89 Entertainment value: 82 Alright, this results in the following table, using overall scores based on the scores above: 1) 84.0 Wasteland 2 2) 83.7 Endless Legend 3) 82.7 Divinity: Original Sin 4) 80.0 Company of Heroes 2: WF 5) 78.3 Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls 6) 77.3 Might & Magic X: Legacy 7) 73.0 The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing 2 8 67.7 Wolfenstein: The New Order 9) 66.0 The Tesla Effect 10) 64.3 Thief 11) 30.0 Goat Simulator As you can see, a few games released this summer and in early autumn have been excellent IMHO. I can't wait to see how Civ: Beyond Earth and DA:I will score on this list. There is also the possibility of Pillars of Eternity this year. What would your scores be for games or expansions for games that have been released this year?
  11. Here are a few blasphemous opinions of mine concerning CRPGs that I've merrily listed here: -I prefer four characters in a party over six -I've come to appreciate 3D CRPGs as slightly more fun than isometric ones -The NWN2 trilogy is better than BG 1 and 2, and basically any other CRPG in history -A minimalist UI is my cup of tea, not chunky boards and cariyatid-ridden blocks -RTwP is better for CRPGs than turn-based (even if I voted turn-based for ToN) -I actually enjoy the occasional random encounter -Pixel hunting and searching areas can be good fun in a CRPG... -...and the same goes for grinding -Companions are great and all, but I love creating an entire party from scratch even more -Character creation and dabbling with builds is like a third of what makes a CRPG great -Uneven pacing and occasional baddies being out of one's league is often good news -I've never really liked them magic users: I prefer to sneak, backstab, shoot arrows or just bash -The music and the sound effects is not just atmosphere. It's game-breakingly important pillars in a game -Pre-buffing never was fun -Occasional countdowns in combat? Sure Now, good folks, what are your blasphemous passions?
  12. This is good news! Our favourite game devs over at Obsidian Entertainment is as safe as safe can be in the US. According to Law Street, Irvine is the safest city in the entire USA! That's a relief! This increases their chances of churning out new masterpieces each year. EDIT: Forgot the link/source: http://lawstreetmedia.com/
  13. I just realized that the company name Obsidian consists of three names: Ob-Sid-Ian. Having deciphered this secret code, I can now give you the true meaning. First, I learnt from the absolutely bizarre site kabalarians.com that the name Ob entails this: Your name Ob gives you a strong sense of responsibility in business and material affairs, and the practicality and determination to make a success of anything you undertake. Your ability to organize and direct the efforts of others enables you to excel in any managerial position because you have the ability to grasp the concept of a goal complete with an understanding of the steps to be taken. This name has allowed you to develop depth and breadth of mind. You are able to retain facts, to grasp new information to your existing store of knowledge. You never seem to be out of your depth of understanding. For these reasons others who may not have the same quickness of mind classify you as a "know it all" and, although you may be highly respected, this characteristic is unlikely to endear you to your associates. You have a very responsible nature, are capable and mature, and are willing to assume a position as a pillar of the community. You are quite healthy, but possible trouble areas are found in the generative organs. You can't contradict Kabalarian Philosophy, it's just divine. The next name in Obsidian is of course Sid, and it's not Sid Meier of the Civilization franchise we're talking about. Obviously, it's Sid Vicious from Sex Pistols who set the spirit free and wild. Sid Vicious' true name was John Ritchie, but like Siddharta turning to Buddha, a pivotal defining moment in his youth changed everything: Ritchie was given the nickname "Sid Vicious" by John Lydon, after Lydon's pet hamster, Sid. The hamster had bitten Ritchie, who said that "Sid is really vicious!" The animal was described by Lydon as "the softest, furriest, weediest thing on earth." Obsidian knows this, but their favourite pet is not a hamster, but a badger, so they have infused their sacred name with a vicious badger that last was seen in MotB. The last name in Obsidian Is Ian. In this case, after quite some digging and more or less illegal research, I can reveal with certainty that it's the spirit of Ian Livingstone that is evoked. His brilliant FF-books and sharp D&D contributions makes him an ideal candidate to strengthen any CRPG endeavours. How clever of you, Obsidian! But now your closely guarded secret is out, so deal with it!
  14. The chaff from this morning's work has been the idea of going carolling to collect for Help for Heroes and Age Concern. I was thinking of good songs to sing. I don't think they need to be all trad christmas songs. Indeed I think many folks will give more if we leaven the carols with some fun ones they might actually want to sing to. Ideas? EDIT: Is anyone talented enough to fit Rammstein's 'Du Habst' to the tune of Deck the Halls?
  15. Summer trip planned- let the planning begin... I want visit similar place in Europe, where i never been yet. Spain? Greece? Italy? Please, give advice to me.
  16. Start of old thread. End of old thread. I have no original content to provide to christen this new thread's maiden voyage. So I'll just steal my favorite from the end of the old thread.
  17. What the title implies. What kinds of characters interest you. What characters you ran across that are awesome/badass/funny/great/whatever and you'd love if the develoeprs make something similar. So post here. What are some of your favorite characters. Give the writers ideas and inspirations. Me? I'd want to see something like King and his 2 bodyguards (Niels and Bohr) from Exiern. They are utterly awesome. Here are some of their moments: http://www.exiern.com/?p=1023 And if you're lazy to read to 5 strips that follow..the conclusion http://www.exiern.com/?p=1034 http://www.exiern.com/?p=1040 http://www.exiern.co.../?p=1667��(king being himself - 4 strips) http://www.exiern.com/?p=907 king and guards - 1 strip http://www.exiern.co...rn.com/?p=968�� - king beein creepy (6 strips) http://www.exiern.co....com/?p=1303��- Niels being awesome http://www.exiern.com/?p=2285 - some side humor http://www.exiern.com/?p=1083 - Bhor the maginifcent http://www.exiern.com/?p=1334 - more from king and his guards (6 strips) http://www.exiern.com/?p=1373 - "evil" Niels http://www.exiern.com/?p=2270 - Niels talking
  18. Hello. Rolling-up a character in the old-skool IE games was fun. As Psychoblonde said in another post, re-rolling stats using virtual dice is fun. Not point buy. Not select-a-character-and-go. No, listening to the theme music whilst drinking beer and clicking to get great stats. Now I know some very serious hard-core types like playing gimped characters as a challenge. More power to your elbow, and if you want to donate those unused ability score points to me I'll happily take them. Anyhoo, on to character generation. It should be fun. It should be a mini-game. Look at the personality test in Jagged Alliance 2. Consider the background rolls for careers in the P&P sci-fi game Traveller. What about those crazy background traits in Arcanum? I don't have a load of answers here, but can some consideration be given to making the process of character generation really, deeply cool in of itself. Give it more love than you'd usually expect. Amaze us. Delight us. Indulge us. Make rolling-up a character so cool that I'd want to do it again just for the hell of it. Stats, character background info (even if it is just for immersion rather than tangible performance), personality info, race / sex / class dealt with in a different way (maybe genders from different classes have different roles in their cultures and you get a comment when you go off-piste), starting equipment, money, appearance... Do NOT make it streamlined and 'convenient' (i.e. dumbed-down), a race to the bottom like, ahem, other RPG developers. What do others think?
