    I agree to a point. I dislike when developers listen to their fans because most of their fans are dumb and they changes they want are bad (like all the complaints that ToEE had TB combat and not RTwP being the loudest on its release). But Cleve is a smart guy and knows what is and isn't fucked up.

    This game is an instant classic and a great game, and I have a high tolerance level for most shit, but I'm putting this on hold until at least V2. One of my favorite things about these games is loot, and right now the economy and the loot is broken. It doesn't have bad itemization, it just has really bad item dispersing. Wiz7 did it pretty good. Every new area had at least one good upgrades and chests with good shit in it, and the progression of acquiring these items was well done. The same for Wiz8 mostly. I cleared the mandarin palace and not one chest had anything good, and the ninja guy had nothing I didn't sell back to him after stealing it all. All my characters have way better and have had the same shit for a long long time now.

    I know for certain Cleve will fix every issue and make this game go from great to mind blowing, but there is a ton of content I want to see and this may be the first game I make a mod for if someone gets off their ass and makes a cosmic forge for this game. What this game needs to go from Cleve's mind blowing gem to reality melting mega-ultra-subgenre undisputed champ is an infusion of class and race love like Mad God did with Wiz7.

    The IGG campaign states that Grimoire's NPCs use an 8000+ word vocabulary. In comparison, Infocom's 'Beyond Zork' (1987; late era) has a vocabulary of 1569 words. Incidentally, Google says that "a vocabulary of just 3000 words provides coverage for around 95% of common texts."

    So, conversing with Grimoire's NPCs, compared with said Infocom game, or even using English in general, should provide some impressive conversations. Is this the case?

    You aren't restricted to one word. They're just being accommodating and trying to help the weird guy who's just grunting single words at them.

    The perfect girlfriend would replace it's I/O routine with a I/I routine (and I/I/I on special occasions).

    Out of curiosity, what approx level were you when in The Catacombs? (for the first time, not sure if you have to go back yet).

    I haven't had much luck with long, complicated sentences, but short sentences can be productive.
    Input vs output
    "Bob" - I don't know much about Bob, you might want to ask Bill.
    "Bill" - I don't know much about Bill, you might want to ask Bob.
    "Where is Bob" - Last I heard, he is over in Lower Kublai Axis where he runs the Fish or Cut Bait store.
    "Where is Bill" - Bill runs the general store with Bob in Lower Kublai Axis. They seem a bit light in the loafers, if you know what I mean.


    "Where is Dartagnan" got me a great story from the right npc.

    When I asked Junga Dinn "How did you get here," I got a proper explanation for why he was there along with information about a certain artifact in his possession.

    What is the first area that is not in the superdemo? I've played 55 hours and I'm in the Chamber of the Waters with 14% of the global map revealed, which I guess makes me one of the slower players...
