Re: The Hero-U Help Thread

Hooray! Datadog, after trying again three or four times, I finally got through everything that you mentioned and took the Stealetto for my very own. Yay! \o/

Should I try to take anything else? Like the cloak or the other thing from the treasure hoard? :D

Yes, I definitely have OpenOffice. Feel free to send me a PM and I'll check it out! :) Would you mind if I add some comments? ;) I'm part of a critique group with other authors and we share comments and critiques all the time. If you'd like, I can do the same for you. No worries! (As we say here in ...

Re: SierraChest 10 Year Anniversary.

A wonderful show. Thanks Rudy and everyone! :) Jan Rabson is male? *shocked shrug* And all these years, I thought that Jan was a female name (because in Australia, it is - short for "Janice"). I saw "Jan Rabson" in the LSL7 credits and I thought "a woman voices Leisure Suit Larry?" *shrug* I remembe...

Re: Designing Gabriel Knight 4.

Actually cutting off body parts as a trophy has been a nasty part of humans in many cultures - and not just the primal scalp hunters either. In Japan there are mimizuka , temples enshrining cut off noses and ears of conquered enemies. There's mokomokai - collecting tattooed heads of Maori. In the U...

Huzzah for finished work! :D *offers Tawm a high-five*

How long did that take? It looks... complicated. :?

Re: Break The Spine.

Just read the first GK novel... can't say I'm impressed. "Germany is surrounded by land." :shock: It's been a long, long while since I read the first GK novel. I can't remember reading that! :lol: Any land-locked country is, obviously, surrounded by land. Take Lichtenstein, for instance. But German...

Re: Police Quest at Science World

I wonder if there were people who didn't know what it was. I heard jokes about how kids think 3.5 disks are "the save button", but to be fair, we all carry cards, flash drives, and assorted chips that we plug into things all the time, so it's not a stretch for a kid to understand what a 5.25" is. E...

Re: Police Quest at Science World

I'm sure this is an old joke. I tried playing Myst, but until I figured it out, it always Mystified me. :P

Yes, quite an amusing tale, Datadog. Nice one.

(By the way, I see there an illustration of 5.25" floppies. Did anyone at the museum ask what those were? Just wondering...)

Re: The Hero-U Help Thread

Thanks, Datadog! I hope you enjoyed the wedding! :) I did go through the serpent room once, knocked him out, re-potioned him and got the all-stats-boosting ring. I just couldn't bear doing that again, since I'm so close to being in Katie's good books. ;) And Tawm ... :lol:! We don't want to spoil yo...

Re: The Hero-U Help Thread

Is that the end of Katie's quest, then? ;) Sorry for the late reply (was on vacation), but no, beating the pirate captain isn't the end of the quest. All he does is give you the key, and maybe his hat. :D The whole point of the treasure hunt is to help Katie get past the locked door beyond the sea ...

Re: What are you playing now?

I don't mind building a fort, I just don't want to micromanage my fort. For that, I will play Warcraft III. Hmm. Am I the only one who found Warcraft III - well - comical? ;) I always got a good laugh out of the non-undead Arthas jumping across the landscape. It was like he had hidden springs in hi...

Hmm, it may not do much for the game's popularity if gamers who haven't played it think that the salesman is a rat. :(

Re: What are you playing now?

It would be a lot of fun to play GK1 if you could go down to the hounfour and come back up with lots-o-money. ;) Then Gabriel will be rich! He's rich! He's wealthy! He's independent! He's socially secure! Yahoo! :D He's comfortably well off. Woo-hoo-hoo! :D He's a happy miser... ;) (Of course, there...
