This file changes w/o notice, and anything in here doesn't necessarly
mean that it will be used.or that it is correct. O_o

these objects are references to Jules Verne's Journey
to the Center of the Earth (1864). In that book a German
professor, Otto Lidenbrock, found a book from a 16th
century Icelandic alchemist, Arne Saknussemm (whose
name is partially visible on the plaque to the top object);
Saknussemm claimed to have journeyed to the center of
the Earth. Intrigued, Lidenbrock followed Saknussemm's
path, using his "AS" markers (as seen on the top object)
to guide him. Among the other things that Lidenbrock
found was an underground sea (the "Lidenbrock sea" on
the bottom plaque) and various "prehistoric" animals
(the ichthyosaur seen here). Lemuel Gulliver," the world-traveler
and explorer from Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels.
(Andrew Johnston notes that according to the chronology
at the Gulliver's Travels Chronology site would be 127
in this portrait) (Stephen Johnston notes the presence,
at the feet of Lemuel, of one of the Lilliputian cattle
that he brought back after his first voyage) "The Reverend
Dr. Syn," from Russell Thorndike's Doctor Syn (1915)
and its six prequels. Syn, the vicar of Dymchurch near
the end of the 18th century, was also the notorious
pirate and smuggler Captain Clegg, aka the Scarecrow.
Note: the display code (likert) provides a clear indicator of the
'range' of the base skills. Since the first number is divided by
the second, and 10 is a near maxed value, simply mutiply the second
number in likert by 10 to determine the max range of the skill.
Sucking skills should go below that.
british need 'tea and crumpets skill' which is GOI + p_ptr->paralization.

Game play impression notes:
Suggestions for Mages made by "Luke" <email@example.com>
Make it so that you can't cast spells with a weapon wielded. Impliment
sheathing somehow (in a way that doesn't make the weapon suseptable
to destruction in the inventory, or pack overflow) so that it takes
energy to sheath the weapon, cast, then energy to draw it again.
This would mean that stopping to cast a spell in melee would take
two additional turns, or however much energy you want it to take.
By default weapons could be sheathed while not attacking (make sure
they grant their powers to the bearer anyway), and upon attacking
you would draw the sword. Or, make it a command to draw the sword
that costs energy, so you would stop while something was about a
square away from you and draw it. Hybrid fighter/caster classes
could either learn to sheath their weapons faster, learn to channel
through their weapons as they level, or acquire high level ego/artifact
items with the CHANNEL flag. The BLESSED flag could make the weapon
able to channel - making the priest spell useful. Could also make
that spell available in other ways. Or, you could make casting with
a weapon wielded increase the mana cost and spell failure - then
simply give hybrid classes lower base mana cost and spell failure,
closer to that of actual caster classes. That way a paladin could
hang back and lob holy orbs like a priest, but lose some time when
he is ready to engage in combat.
Giants: A hit of totally useless trivia: Old Finns talk about
"vaski" with which they refer to copper, brass or bronze. For example
"vaski sword" that will most probably mean bronze, but when talking
about horns or pots you could guess copper...
Vae has some cool ideas on timing and traps and stuff for Mold
Stuff to do back into town-
have a garden affect your stats abilities.
change mutations to phernology
add mind bullets and yaks.
Fufie: you could have a Prussian General set NMB_BF1942: ewwww
Fufie: with boots, gloves, a little officer stick, ... VALIS: heh
NMB_BF1942 just discovered a copy of The Sims : House Party in his
CD collection Fufie: increases discipline Fufie: but limits charisma
Fufie: activated for command troops Fufie: then you have the Jules
Verne travel gear Fufie: khaki clothes, rugged boots and a machete
Fufie: increases range of sight Fufie: activated for 'map area'
*** NMB_BF1942 is now known as NightmareBlade Fufie: this kind of
thing you're looking for? NightmareB: dont ya hate it when you know
you have a certain CD, but for the life of you, yoiu caNT find it?
Fufie: also consider the Captain Nemo underwater suit
Fufie: other artifact set: Nansen's Arctic Gear, solid boots, anorak,
big mittens, and skis that cross anything.. all of them resist/immune
to cold and lets you command dogs and good vision
- Mutations don't give enough room for full name of power. Correct
layout issue.Or keep the layout as it is, because it's that way
to insure that there's enough room for all the powers. Decisions,
- Scandinavia refers to Norway, Sweden and Finland. - Nordic (Nordic
countries) refer to Scandinavia plus Denmark and Iceland. - Do not
mix Nordic with Norsemen, which refers mainly to Norwegian vikings
(after all, the biggest group of vikings were Danes...) - Oh, and
Finland wasn't part of "Viking heartland", and Vikings are IMO out
of the era of Steampunk. - Finland was part of Russia for the whole
19th century (well, from 1809) :-) - If you want a racial power
for Finns, I recommend ResCold. I don't know if there should be
one... - Finns are not totally unfamiliar to the subject of this
game (Historical facts, these I can remember from top of my head):
* August Nordensksld was a semi-famous alchemist in late 18th century.
He published a book "A Plain System of Alchemy" in London in 1778.
He died in Sierra Leone in Africa after being captured by some black
some savages who tortured him to death. * Adolf Nordenskisld (apparently
not related) was a Finnish explorer in the 19th century. His greatest
achievement was to be the first to sail to the Bering Streit from
the Norway through the Siberian coastal waters.
-spiders to the list now. And a healing mecha
-spider(?!???) DarkGod: flollows you and heals you when needed DarkGod:
from arcanum too :) Scoth: RE:mecha and potions. VALIS: They should
be able to drink them, just they do nothing. Or cause damage from
electrical damage Long term
Should have poison create flammable methane terrain.
