    My dead friend Tim has a higher Metacritic score than Grimoire. Honestly. If him dying is what it took to make this game flop, it was worth it. IT WAS WORTH IT MY FRIEND.

    Cleveland Mark Blakemore HUMBLED this man so decisively he deleted all Grimoire related content from his channel and has become another Hearthstone player.



    Makes you think about life, don't it. One day you have hundreds of subscribers, then you get all bigheaded and come swinging with T-Rex arms at the 'Thal... now you're just an irrelevant content creator using his sister's paypal for e-begging to whatever 25 subscribers will listen.

    That's hard times, nigga. And I'm eating beans out of a can.

    This is beautiful.

    Are these the pre-made quick start characters? I recall some of them from when I played.

    I created all 8 of my characters, but relied on Grimoire's random name generator for all but one (Mad Dax), so there might be some overlap with the quick start characters.

    Hello Baxander,

    Why don't you do another play-through of Grimoire, to replace the one you deleted when you were completely shamed? We can also hear if you've improved your pronunciation of 'Grimoire'.

    Thank you.

    Edit: He doesn't like Baldur's Gate. Does that improve his standing within the Codex?

    The same as when I started, because the original release version of Grimoire imposed such dramatic increases in XP needs for level increase that it was effectively impossible to change classes. :M

    Warrior, Berserker, Ranger, Thief, Sage, Wizard, Thaumaturge, and Cleric. At level 9 (class change required reaching level 10).

    It seems Cleve is working on three new games right now. Assuming that he'll work on Grimoire updates (or Grimoire 2) after he releases said games, you can expect to get them maybe after...2080?

    How much money do you think Grimoire made, Baxander? I'm curious to know. Also what you think the total number of copies sold were.

    I'll give you a hint. It made a little more than I earned in an average year when I was contracting in the late 90's. That's about 6 times what you have made in your entire working career as a male nurse.

    I'm not kidding you, if you bring any member of my family into your discussion on this board again I will make your front door my first stop the next time I am in the States. I was just starting to think you weren't worth it. Until then I will go back to informing your employers of just how unsafe you are to be working with the elderly and people who are already ill. Your bug-chasing madness is very easy to document.

    A little bird told me you are on a lot of medication. A lot. It seems here you have stopped taking it because this snowflake hagiography is the gayest thing I have ever seen posted in the history of the internet. Time to do as the doctor ordered and go back on it.

    If you aren't playing on a CRT monitor than you aren't playing in the intended way.

    So gay it deserves to be quoted just for the thrill of the retardedness involved.

    Let me know how that game goes. I think you were still working on your C64 reboot of one of your fanfic text adventures the last time I checked about 5 years ago.

    what black magic makes a borrower need 12 points to be a thaumaturge when the attribute point difference between race and class is 15?
    or is the wiki crap?
    i just made a barrower thaumaturge with 31 bonus points and got 16 left.
    the wiki says i should have gotten
    31-12=19
    19+(30%x19)=24.7
    but what i got was just 15 points less than 31 which means both the multiplier bonus for making borrower thaumaturge is a lie and the table which tells you what points you need for a class with a specific race is a lie.
    who made the retarded wiki?
