  1. So there's something I've been wondering for awhile, and it's about the Aveyond Vamps. I wasn't sure where to post it, so I decided to post it here. Anyway, the question is: where do vampires come from? Obviously a bite will transform a mortal into a vampire (as seen with Galahad) but is that the only method? If so, does that mean someone bit Tei'jal? Also, how would Tei'jal have a brother, then? Were they simply bitten by the same person or were they related before? If this is the case, then I would love a Aveyond game about Tei'jal's origins. And if vampires can be born... then I wanna see baby Galahads and Tei'jals! More importantly, I want Galahad to meet his in-laws. Doesn't that sound hilariously entertaining? Any thoughts on the matter? Or perhaps the Word of God would like to make a comment on the matter.
  2. Yeah, what Argoyle said. I turned her inactive for the fight. I guess I was just used to automatically having all four characters active at that point, so when I didn't see her in the next fight I got into, I thought she had disappeared. So don't worry, it's not a bug. I also agree with Argoyle that if there is a Build C, it might be less confusing to automatically make Yemite active. Although it really isn't that much of a problem. Once again, I'm sorry for hastily making the topic.
  3. Is Yemite supposed to disappear along with Uma and Nox when Galahad shows up? EDIT: Nevermind, it seems she was put on inactive. Sorry for making an unecessary post.
  4. Yeah, I'm not trying to attack Amaranth Games, or anything. Especially since the games were chopped up into smaller pieces and written separately, that tends to cause little inconsistencies. Fortunately it's easily changeable in this downloadable medium. (Well, maybe not that easy, but easier when compared to others.)
  5. Isn't another inconsistency that at the end of the third game it sounded like they were going directly to the arishta isles, and then in the fourth game it takes her a year to agree to go? Hm. Hopefully they go over it all a final time to make it all flow.
  6. Well, I love paper books. My mom is the same, she said she could never stand a kindle. Then my dad got one (for himself) and he hasn't been able to use it, since my mom is always hogging it. (In fact, it was so easy for her to just buy books, that he actually had to ban her from buying anything with it. She was spending way too much money.)So I guess it can be addictive and fun. I dunno. My dream is to have a library in my own home. I've already got four bookshelves mostly filled. (Actually, I'm getting to the point where I almost need a fifth one.) So yeah, I personally love paper books. Plus I heard that if you read the terms for buying books on the kindle, you technically aren't "buying" them but "renting" them. I think amazon reserved the right to call back any book they release at any time. Supposedly this happened when they accidentally released a book that they didn't have permission to release. So after all these people paid for it, they took it back and refused to refund it, saying that they had only paid to "rent" it. Or something like that. I haven't actually looked into it since then, but it does make me wary about it. Actually, that's not the only digital media with that risk. If you look at the downloadable stuff that (mostly) major game publishers are releasing, half the time it's technically just "renting" as well. (Like the starcraft cheating ban? You buy the game, cheat in SINGLE player, and get permanently banned from ever playing it again? How's that fair?) I like digital media, but I think it needs some more time to develop into a fair business. If that makes sense. And that post was way too long! Sorry people.
  7. Yet another goregous looking game.
  8. Wow. What'd you use to program it?
  9. Darn it. What's with all the good looking and free rpg games coming out when I have no time to play them? T^T But yeah. I'll definetely play this game when my life decides I deserve some free time. Also, out of curiousity, are the main character sprites original? They look way better than most VX sprites I've seen for some reason...
  10. Here's one my mom told me. A German company, that decided to try selling chocolate in the US. They spent millions of dollars working out the recipes, building factories, and other businessy stuff. They decided to call the chocolate by the German name. They looked up the name in an English dictionary, didn't find it, and figured it would be alright. It just so happens that word was an informal one that couldn't be found in the dictionary at the time. The German word for chocolate? Zit. They went bankrupt.
  11. @Argoyle: *slaps head* right... that place... I think I remember there being an art gallery of sorts... Thank you for correcting me. @Beginners: Thanks for commenting, glad you like it!
  12. (Not quite sure where to post this... there should be a fanart/fan works forum) I got tired of Tei'jal having different hairstyles in sprite and portrait form, so I tried editing the sprite. I only got her front view done so far. So... What do you think?
  13. I USED to live in the seattle area. I wish I still did... For college, I would study programming. Just plain old programming. Indie game development does not promise riches, or even promise that you'll make money at all. Because of that, game programming is a risk. On the other hand, if you studying programming, you can get a well paying job as a programmer and make indie games on the side, until you do well enough to go full time. That's my plan anyway.
  14. Thanks for the help! The first time I went down the stairs I thought it was just a dead end (I didn't see those rock steps.) Got the beanstalk seed now. Thanks again for the help.
  15. That's the problem. I have explored every inch of the area after the pixies, and I can't find the way to the beanstalks. And where in the crystal caverns is the third bottle?
  16. Okay, I'm feeling pretty stupid, but how do you get through the crystal caverns to the beanstalks? I already gave the finger chomping pixies their candy and now I have no idea where to go. I also can't find the third empty bottle. Help, please?
  17. So I just wanted to add my two cents worth on GoN. I may be repeating what some people have already said, so my apologies for that! First off, I loved the huge cities, and exploring them was fun. However getting from point A to point B took forever, because it often involved going around the entire city. I would like it if there were more shortcuts through the city, like little alley ways between houses, that would make getting around faster. It wasn't that big of a deal, but just something that's been on my mind since the first aveyond game. I love the disappearing corpses. That was a nice feature where you didn't have to search the same corpses over again because you can't remember if you’ve already searched them or not. However... in previous games I had been using corpses to remember where I've already been in dungeons. Lol. Oh well. I like it better if they disappear. The cut-off point for LoT was sudden, but understandable, especially because (I think) LoT and GoN were originally made as one game, and then split, right? GoN did a better job at wrapping things up, and I look forward to seeing how the story is organized in chapter 3. I love Mel. She is so cute!!! I love how she's a thief. I wish she could do some more stealing out of battles or some more spying. For the rest of the characters, Tei'jal and Galahad are awesome, Edward was okay, I enjoyed the interaction between Lydia, Edward, and Mel, and Stella could have used more depth, I think, but she didn't bother me in any way, either. The only character I had a problem with was Ulf, and that was because he basically stood in the background for the whole game. I hope he has more character development in the later games. While I look forward to seeing how marriage affects the later games, the attraction point system bothered me. In the first aveyond, the marriage system was awesome. I laughed so hard at the soul pendant and love potion skits. In aveyond 2, each pairing had their own skits and options that developed their relationship and revealed more about the individual characters. (I especially liked Ava and Gavin, as well as Nicholas's character growth.) However, in this game, the attraction point system was... bland. Buy flowers, buy a poem, buy more flowers, buy more flowers, little magic spell from faery, name a star... They didn't flesh out the characters at all. True, av3 had more character development in the actual storyline, but it was still a disappointment. Also, a final little note is that when Mel dresses up at the beginning of the game to find the spy, her hair graphics are messed up from the back. All in all, aveyond3 had the best story yet, and a most loveable main character and I really look forward to the next aveyond game. Er... yeah. Someone mentioned pirates fighting over a rubber duck? I think I missed that. Can someone fill me in? Also, if vampires can't have children, then that would mean that Tei'jal would have had to be mortal before, and then someone turned her, right?
  18. All of the houses in Stormbend cause it. It doesn't happen at Moo Hatchery or Thais though. (I haven't checked the other cities yet.) My sister says it's Mel stealing from the houses.
  19. I'm replaying LoT so that I can get Edward and Mel married, and I just got to Stormbend. Now everytime I leave a house I get 100 gold. Is that a glitch of some kind or did I somehow activate the gold goodie? It's not really an unwelcomed glitch, but I still wonder what caused it.
