What are the chances of a forum member's 90% everything discount? :P

Don't regard the above question. What web browser do you like best?

Are some kinds of negative emotions healthier than others for shadowlings?

Despite all appearances, this is a serious question.

I noticed a post a bit back saying that Arman will die if you don't pay off Al'al. If you join the Black Rose, does the Black Rose still kill him, or does it let him live?
...For I am his, and he is mine, bought by the precious blood of Christ.

Anyone want to find the rest of the words?

The former, though doing so will have other consequences that I'm not ready to reveal here. :)

Are some kinds of negative emotions healthier than others for shadowlings?

I don't have an answer for that one at the moment. I can say that shadowlings derive more sustenance from some emotions than others, however. As a general rule, the more intense the negative emotion, the more nourishing it is for a shadowling. That is, ultimately, what makes shadowlings so dangerous to humans: they get some sustenance out of mocking and being rude to people, sure, but not nearly as much as they get out of kidnapping them, torturing them, or killing them.

Is there a better way to keep an MC on the top of a Flash game than adding object containers as children, and then adding the MC, and only generating MovieClips within the Containers, or is that the best way?

All the other methods concerning fiddling with index levels and such, I've found to be insatisfactory.

If there is a particular MC you want to keep on top, try using addChildAt() with all the subsequent MCs so they get added below it. (If you want to add them all at a particular index level, use an int variable to keep track of it.)

If Niven can eat pickles (Heh heh. I can't get LethalLaurie's portrayal of it out of my head. :-[ :D) how does the shadowling digestive system work?

What do bronze golems look like? We've had pictures of the other two golem types, but not a bronze golem.

How do you compose your music? Do you use some sort of program? And where can I get the Telepath theme song?
