  1. Re-opening my thread from the old site because the questions are creeping up again. Old people are surprised at the age of the youth here and the youth are shocked that great grandma's and grandpa's like to play games. There is so much fun finding out someones age when you thought it was so different. :S So does it matter what age your friends are here? For me it doesn't matter one little bit. I love you all. :love:

    Show and Tell Pet Pictures

    So many of us have beloved pets we'd like to share. I decided it would be nice to have a separate thread so we don't clutter the people picture post with pets. So all you pet lovers bring on the birds, horses, cats, dogs, ferrets, snakes and spiders. Let's show and tell. I :love: CATS http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh216/allybandy/cat3a.jpg[/img] This is my beloved Fatbob. She was a wild cat. I spent a year trying to gain her trust. Now she spends most days inside getting her ears scratched. We thought she was a boy, maybe a bobcat when she first started coming around our house, hence the name Fatbob. She always has that 'Devil may kill' look in her eyes. :evil:

    How do you play?

    I kill everything I can find. I often try sneaking into a harder area, kill a difficult monster, then run back and heal my party. It allows me to level up quicker. Then it is easier to fight in the area where I should actually be in.

    Vagabonds: A Traveling RP

    I like the Tavern rp, but it is limited by 'Being in the Tavern'.(Please don't think you have to stop going to the Tavern if you come here. This is for adding mobility in addition to the Tavern.) This RP is open to anyone who wants to join in on an adventure. Just wayfarers meeting up for a time on the road, come what may. We may decide to go off on a quest or just sit around the fire and share a meal. This RP takes place in Aveyond 1. Feel free to take advantage of the locations and maps, houses in any part of the game. You don't need permission to join. You can come and go at will. Everybody welcome. If you are new to RPing like me and want to get your feet wet, you are welcome here. Rules: No bad language, etc. We are adventurers, Please no random popping in to kill everyone. If you want to make an obstacle for the travelers this is great. Just no killing sprees. -------------------------------------------------- AND THE STORY BEGINS... As I exit the Tavern the sound of laughter and clanging utensils becomes muted. I sniff the breeze, rain is in the air. But still I must be off to find A'lya, my dearest Elven friend. She should have been here three days ago. I set off southeast towards home and the Old Woods. I may look like a child, unable to take care of myself. But that couldn't be farther from the truth. The noise fades into the mist as I trudge up the path into the forest. I'm aware of the animals scuffling into their homes as I approach, and hum a tune of peace to them. Soon they peek out and wander behind me. I do love their company on my lonely trek...

    What Makes A Good Parent?

    So often as parents we wonder Where did I go wrong?. We try to do everything right. Sometimes we go overboard in the opposite direction. Sometimes too strict and sometimes not enough. It seems we constantly are accused of giving either too much or too little. Next comes the "Get out of my private life or You never listen." Where are the ground rules, how do we bridge the gap? (I didn't have these problems as a parent, my sons came to me for everything. The generation gap missed us. I did have these problems as a child.) What constitutes the ideal parent?
  8. How about making some of the afore mentioned items time oriented. Like a special ticket for a shopping spree (allowing you to purchase clothing in shops for free) but only if you reach a particular point in the game by 'x' amount of game-play hours.

    Very nice Aeternus, but I always love your sets
  10. IDK, it might be fun to have clothing stores where your chars could buy different apparel. For example if they are going intp a cold area they could buy winter clothes that up their mp or hp while in the area and in the clothes, or need to purchase climbing equipment to cross mountains. Or buy clothing just for fun because you like different colors or pants vs dress. As for the fishing, perhaps you can buy a pole, then anytime you come to a water source you could choose the pole from the menu to get a fish, but have it random, so you cant stand there collecting fish like money with the cash cow. It would also be fun to have to perform quests to get your pets, rather than just buy them.
  11. Or what if there was an artifact from AV1, that you needed later in the game of AV4. You need to be Transported through time into the tilesets from the previous games for brief periods to track down the item(s). Maybe you need the lamp from AV2 and the mirror from AV1 or some such thing. Place it in the difficult mazes from the games. That way we get a little bit of familiarity, without actually dealing with the past characters. Kind of a walk down memory lane.
  12. I don't know that I would want to see the whole party of eight during every battle, but I loved the use in Everlong of one big party of which you could only use four, but during segments of the game you had two separate parties of four on two separate quests, that both help the main plot. It opens the possibility for whole new scenarios like rescuing the other party. Also, how about a spy among the group, but you don't find out who it is until way late in the game

    Wasn;t really sure where to post this but...

    I bought my first game Aveyond I at BigFish games, but the rest from Amanda here. The thing BigFish 'does' do for Amanda is get her game out into the public's eye. I would never have heard of Amaranthia had it not been for BigFish. So saying she should stop using the portals is not necessarily a great business move either. But I am a die-hard fan and will always come here for the games now that I know where she is Note to Amanda: Don't you dare lower the price and make cheap games. They are well worth the $20. I can't go to the show with my hubby for less than that and the entertainment value of your games is far and beyond that of a 2 hour movie.

    Introduce Yourself (remade)

    Welcome back Nocturnal-dance.
  17. lolz, Dis I was in an RP where I played a 12" tall fairy in love with a dark elf that resembled Vin Diesel in size and character. He fell in love with her too. I :loving: the idea. Oh, or have a Prince that really is enchanted/cursed to be ugly or a toad (as a main char) with a significant amount of side quests needed to get a girl to fall in love with him.

    something bad about google

    Next time you go shopping, buy a plant for your computer. Then you can at least comfort yourself every time you google that you've done your part to balance the CO2.
  19. It might be interesting to be able to mix spells and/or weapons to create something you otherwise cant buy or find in the game. Also have the pets you might acquire, be an accessory item that you can take with you to use in battle or stealth. Like a pet monkey could steal money, or a pet tiger could catch food for the group, or attack the enemy when your MP is gone.

    Wow awesome Aaron, Thanks for the goodies. <3
  24. I have to agree with Aisling here, Elini is human. It is just a cultural thing with the many husbands. If anything her life would be shorter with so many men to take care of...lol.
