One of the many people who melted down when they heard of the 'thal.

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.

Eagerly awaiting the importation of my party into Grimoire II: Exemplars of the Heraldic Wings

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?

Several studies have shown that the inability to get fullscreen for almost a year after release caused various types of cancers of the brain.
Add the unbalanced gameplay and endless array of amateur bugs and inept programming, and you have a bonafide cancer causing host.

So Grimwah is an effective tool of population control. I appreciate it even more now

What was your end party like?
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).

.....thankfully for him.
Grimoire made less money in sales than Cleve's mom made dry humping teddy bears on OnlyFans.
Disaster. Wow.

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.

The first time I saw the game I thought, "My God Tim would be amazed..."
But then I walked through that shitty, disney-esque starting forest, the little fairies and every fantasy trope known to man just fucking SCREAMING in my face, "HEY LOOK AT ME!". But all I could see was the shitty UI for inventory, the quirky cartoony bullshit, the tone deaf midi music, all of it... SLAPPIMG MY DEAD FRIEND IN THE FACE!!
Then the taunts came, the THREATS! My hometown living in fear from this babbling maniac, this intrepid, middle-aged construction worker who wears a GOD DAMN FANNY PACK....it was horrendous. Others reaching out to me about the BULLYING they experienced.
I bought the game, tears streaming down my face, KNOWING THIS WOULD BE WHAT TIM WANTED. BUT IT WAS ALL A LETDOWN! He promised us an epic game, it was a mobile phone game in disguise. The money donated to crowdfunding...FOR WHAT.
And Stones of Arnhem, oh yes, STONES OF ARNHEM, the game he RUINED with his antics! The game Tim could have played if he had not ruined it with HIS DILDO PRANKS!!!
This Coors Light is for you Tim, fucking Grimoire will RISE AGAIN.....AS THE GAME YOU WANTED!

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.

Just a man who is going to make the game that Grimoire SHOULD have been.

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?

Any update on the follow up content for 3.0? Itching for another playthrough...

It's important to me too. Got a lot of stuff going on right now. I want to release 3.0 as soon as I can.
