Great waste of time

If you’ve never tried it, try the “Blades of Avernum”: game. It’s a role-playing game that’s not too big on graphics, but _very_ good on plot. This game, based on the Avernum series (which, in turn, is a remake of the Exile series), is broken up into different scenarios. The game itself comes with four good ones, and anyone can create new scenarios with a free scenario editor. Some third-party ones are pretty good.

At any rate, I’d like to ask any future scenario designer to refrain from making a character who has most of the following characteristics:

* is heavily clad
* says “mm mmmmmmm, mmmmm” a lot
* gets killed
* people respond by saying some variation of “you bastards!”

It’s getting old. Really old.
