All of a sudden, when I tried to open the forums page a while back, I went on getting a 502 error. Got real scared then. Fortunately, cleaning Chrome's cache solved it all. Peace!

  • Where's all the fun non-sense activity page talk? Without it, it feels so empty in here... :/

      This is a no-nonsense zone, no fun allowed. Let me see your license and registration.

      The insanity level in the forum is like tides.. Sometimes it's high, sometimes it's low and sometimes it hits the forum as a tsunami spreading through activity, personal walls and threads :)

  • Deadfire appears to have become much more stable now! I think I'm finally going to do a playthrough now. Chosen a Fire Godlike Fury, which shapeshifts into a cool Storm Blight, and has a bonus to Elemental spells. Let's see how it plays out! :smiley:

    The latest patches have also introduced a new Kill Cam, which shows enemy deaths magnified and in slow motion (better turn Gibs off there, otherwise things can look quite messy. Yeah, that boar near the sea cave in Vilario's Rest exploded into gory chunks... :confounded: )

      Is this effect actually used in any spells?
    • mlnevese

      I always wondered how you explain some saves... for instance how can you justify allowing a save against a fireball inside a 6x6x6 room? The spell will literally fill every single inch of hat room with fire.

      On my tabletop games I never allowed impossible saves to be even attempted...

      Isn't that a spell effect from IWD2?

      @mlnevese The Uncertainty Principle is the answer... ;)

      @ThacoBell I extracted it from IWD:EE using NearInfinity. Never saw it in-game, though.

      Hmmmm...so you just blink out of reality due to quantum fluctuation... I should have thought of that... :)

      Huh, I wonder what its used for.

      There are a lot of fancy effects hidden in the game files. Maybe they planned something and then didn't release it?

      Reminds me of an adventure where if the group didn't stop a certain ritual they would have to face a goblin's god avatar :)

      Reminds me of when I was hosting a no reload MP run with several forumites here. Our party was about level 4 and our wild mage had the gate wild surge, but I was an inquisitor so I kept the nabassu occupied with Protection from Evil while the rest of the party hid. We eventually killed the demon with a wand and went on to beat sarevok (much later).

      That was a party with: Tresset (Inquisitor), me (F/M/T), Gotural (Wild Mage), and an archer (CrevsDaak).

  • Google keyboard emojis suddenly appear to be working in the forums?

    I wonder if these are visible...

    I see that we share the same formatting style for posting music videos. I will share a secret with you: I really, really dislike very much left-aligned youtube videos on forum threads (not on the activity page though!!).

    So thank you, I appreciate that a lot.

    I also appreciate that you put in the title and mention the artist above the videos, like I do. Of course it is easy enough to find out an artist by oneself. There is no "need" to put the artist's name above a music video.

    However, I do consider this little extra effort as a gesture of respect and acknowledgement towards the artist. That's why I do it.

    The opposite does not hold true of course. I DON'T see not doing it as a sign of disrespect.

      The artist, I believe, is the most important person for any piece. It's only because of him/her that we are able to listen to the song. An acknowledgement is, I guess, the least we can do to respect them. They deserve it, and a lot more... a lot more.

      And hey, I like centering important things. That way they look good! ;) (You'll know it if you see the monsters I occasionally conjure upon people's walls here. I learnt the mysterious art of monster conjuring some few months back. ;) )
