General Discussion / Web Browser Choice
March 12, 2011, 08:07:59 PM
The question basically says it all. I was wondering, out of curiosity, what web browsers everybody ran. Make sure to explain your choice, and tell which browsers you've tried.

For me, Firefox is beyond a doubt the best. It runs smooth, and the add-ons are amazing. The add-ons let me download Youtube videos, have a dislike button for facebook, block all ads (including Youtube ads), and change the web browser to look and run however I want. I was at first annoyed that the download window ran separately, but then I found an add on that fixed that. And it has spellcheck, which is great.
I've used IE, Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.
TSoG / Nelis and Yawah?
January 22, 2011, 01:00:27 PM
There seems to be a widespread theory that Nelis will somehow be brought into the storyline of TsoG. What do you think this will entail as far as the mystery behind Yawah?
I will update the poll when new theories come up.
TSoG / Who is this?
August 19, 2010, 12:22:38 PM
On the TSoG Flyer, the on of the middle pictures is what looks like a ghost. Who is it? Is he the recruitable character Craig mentioned would come up? Discuss.
TSoG / 10 Characters!
August 09, 2010, 10:23:56 AM
Quote from: CraigStern on August 09, 2010, 10:04:32 AM
There will be at least ten playable characters
There are 10 or more characters planned.
1. Duvalier
2. Rahel
3. Luca
4. Griffin
5. Set
6. Malis
7. Arman
Assuming the spearman and red spriggat will be in game, that leaves one more character? Is it Gelf?
Discuss, follow the Rules, and be nice.

During this four day stretch, all of our mods vanished. Discuss this here. Is it for game development? Did the 1337 cult kill them off? Vacation?

TSoG / AI brings unwanted difficulty increase?
June 13, 2010, 07:59:48 AM
With the games new AI, TsoG has undergone a serious difficulty increase. This makes fighting Azma insanely hard, especially on Brutal, where I was unable to complete it without loosing 2-3 teammates. Also, it makes grinding afterwords more necessary than before. My purpose for making this thread was to see if anything should be done about it, lke say, increasing initial character health and Psp, giving everybody 1 more move in the start, etc.
TSoG Walkthroughs / Treasure Chests
June 06, 2010, 04:18:11 PM
Since Craig has added random treasure chests, I thought it would be appropriate to create a thread for their locations.
I feel slightly embaressed, since I only have found one so far.

General Discussion / Are Forum Games too popular?
May 31, 2010, 02:27:33 PM
There are currently 3543 posts in "Forum Games" while the next largest thread "General Discussion" only has 826. While I am as much of a contributor to this as anybody else, I think this is a problem. It seems that much more time is spent on the games then anything TRPG, which I don't believe is productive. Craig seemed to have an idea of this when he made forum game posts not count towards post totals.
Quote from: KZ on February 28, 2010, 09:32:02 AM
By the way, is it possible to completely remove post count from forum games section? 'Cause those posts do not in any way constructively contribute to the forums discussions in general, other than providing a bit of entertainment (which is good), but if the ranking system is to be of any value (reputation/repsect/weight, etc), then if posts outside the forum games count, it will be an indicator of how much a person has been active on the general discussions (as there have been users with posts into the hundreds who have barely contributed anything elsewhere). This would make the attainment of each rank be more worthwhile and something to be even more pleased about.
I can't think of a solution though, and upon reflection this may be a pointless topic. If that appears to be the general consensus, I will remove this thread.

Edit: Just to correct a typo in the title. :) Ert
Harvester / Has anybody else played Harvester?

Has anybody else on this site played Harvester? If not, the link is here
Its a pretty cool game, especially the plotline.
TSoG Wish List / Do you want to see Noctus in TRPG3?
April 25, 2010, 01:56:16 PM
As discussed in this poll:, the forum users seem to have mixed feelings about wether Noctus will be alive. Do you want to see Noctus again, wether or not you personally believe he was/could have been revived? Why/Why not?
TSoG / Strongest Affinity
April 19, 2010, 07:13:20 PM
After notable amounts of testing the elemental blasts' damages, I began to wonder what the strongest affinity was. I'll keep my conclusions to themselves, and intead offer the information I discovered, and let you all discuss:

All of the elemental blast attacks are Damage=Power+3*Skill+2 EXCEPT shadow, which is Damage=Power+2*Skill+3. However, shadow blast costs one psp less, (6 instead of 7)
Area attacks are as follows:
OOXOO                       Damage=Power+1.5*Skill+3
OXXXO                       (cost 13)

OOXOO                       Damage=Power+1.4*Skill+1    (Unsure of the 1.4, but it is definately not 1.5)
OXXXO                       (cost 12)

OXXXO                       Damage=Power+Skill+2
OXXXO                       (cost 16)

OXXXO                       Damage=Power+Skill+2
OXXXO                       (cost 18)
TSoG / Damage formula's
April 02, 2010, 04:17:05 PM
So, I am currently working on testing the damage formulas. Every so often, i will post one, starting with the main, and then I will ask anybody that sees this to test using their character.
PLEASE keep rounding in mind

My current formula is HeroMindBlastDamage=Power+Skill/2 (incorrect on wiki)

Skill is only the whole number given, experience has no effect
Also, the skill/2 is rounded to the nearest whole number

Also, Hero'sMindShieldHealing=Defense+Skill

Next, PyroBlastDamage=Power+3*Skill+2

Next, PyroHailDamage=Power+1.4*Skill+1

Edit: That one is actually FeedbackStrength=Defense+Skill-thanks for that Frosty

Also, VengenceStrength=Defense+Skill

New one: Shadow Blast Damage=Pwer+2*Skill+3
the wiki says its Power+Skill+3, link's here:

Then, correct in the wiki, is DarkVortexDamage=Power+Skill+2

Next, incorrect in wiki, is LightBlastDamage=Power+3*Skill+2
wiki says that one is Power+2*Skill

Next, correct on wiki, is LightBombDamage=Power+Skill+2-that one took SOOOOOOOOO long, 34 light bombs......

Next, incorrect on the wiki: CyroBlastDamage=Power+3*Skill+2

last of the element blasts, and correct on wiki: CyroCrossDamage=Power+1.5*Skill+3
