So I had quite a bit of fun with this update! I guess I'll list some pros and cons again, since that always is useful to people, apparently!

PROS
1) Dialogue is still nice. A few uhmms and stuff could be taken out, but otherwise solid.
2) Enemies still look great (despite me still thinking them rather large). Encyclopedia entries are still good.
3) Leliana, Mardek's mom, and Polly, Deugan's Mom, say some funny stuff that I think I requested a while ago. GOOD SHOW!
4) The way you weaved the story together was nice, if not a little odd. I liked it.
5) Warp stones are so convenient, yah! However, I wish I got them a bit earlier. Also, 15 of them seems excessive. Maybe that's just me.
6) I like how all the people Steele talks to are rather crazy in some way. Or most. Anyway, I got a new favorite line from the update, which is "You look like a fag."

CONS
1) The dream seemed a bit unnecessary, if not disgusting. Perhaps you could shorten it? Also, the girl who says for him to wake up turns into a reptoid briefly. Odd.
2) Spelling errors here and there, like forgetting letters and such.
3) I went into Mereador's house, and talked to him. He said the same thing as Polly did. And recieved the same response. Odd. Also, the Metal Man says something about a cave which is seen later. Maybe a funny comment from Steele would liven up the mood.
4) Another thing: Steele, while his dialogue is great, seems to convey a compassionate side later on in some of his P dialogue monologues. Maybe that's just me though.
5) That fairy is hard to catch. Make it easier. I spent a literal 2 hours trying to find the right spot and positioning I had to stand to get it. Ugh. Otherwise, that part would be quite enjoyable.
6) Zach's appearance with that mystery man was nice, but he says too much. Perhaps add a few ...s at the end or something? Again, that might just be me.
7) The water slime things can only be killed with a strong physical attack. This, for some reason or another, bothers me, because I could never seem to hit them...
8) So once I beat up Vehrn, I couldn't exit the cave unless I used a warp stone. Very odd.
9) It'd be nice if there were a few more save crystals. Sometimes, I felt that encountering a save crystal took too long.
10) STEELE DOESN'T DO FAT CHICKS, YO! NOT COOL, YO!

Anyway, that's all on my part. I'll play it again for fun and for extra stuff, but that's all at the moment.

So, I was hoping the game would come out soon, but I guess I'll have to wait for an update from smega. *Sigh* Oh well, I can wait for Mardek 4, so I can wait for Steele...

Rating Orb Brock, Lawful Good Artist – joined 7 years ago Saul's lines: the roleplay!..XXX.XXX4 years ago
Since some of you guys on the other site can't post in my thread, I figured some of you might have interest in posting in the thread here! :D

Anyway, the rules are simple: You act as Saul and speak in his manner while sticking to the plot and not interfering with the main quest of Mardek. Just don't put in random characters from nowhere and don't kill Saul, and you should be fine! ^^

This is what I posted:

"NEHEHEHE" Chortled Saul as he got away from the puke colored paladin and whitey mighty knight. "They honestly thought they could shake off me, the lustrious and oh-so-handsome Saul?!? Well, they were wrong!"
Saul then heard a noise and moved behind the house, spying to see as Whitey knighty and his companions walked out of the godforsaken lovehole he disillusioned to call himself a home.
But it was only a matter of time before his undead would RISE AGAIN!
It was only a matter of time now, Saul thought as the gleaming baldness of his head sparkled in the sun, only a matter of time before he would rule! Those pale skinned heroes never knowest what should befall them next as he got his revenge. Yes...

(Continue, someone else. I don't think I did a great job, but this is only for fun, so have fun with it! :D)

I may as well post that I recently found a fun little text-based game in the app store. It's an old game, but it is frustratingly difficult. Besides that, I figured anyone who played it could perhaps... discuss? I don't know. I just posted this to say that I had a lot of fun with this game and you should try it too, if you like reading, that is. LOTS of reading.

I was also wondering if there would be crafting. I'm sure there is, but I may as well mention this rather obvious statement anyway. Also, as Mania said, it would be nice to have more interaction between the time you enter the Glens to the time you get the ring... maybe an NPC would greet you there or meet you by the arm breaker breastplate chest? I know both those things are unlikely to happen, but it is still worth mentioning. Also, it would be cool if you got a 'secret key' in the game that lets you go into any house... :P

Next, in the demo, I noticed that Tybalt says 'Get lost' without a period. You might want to fix that, unless I am mistaken, which I don't think I am...

It would also be nice if we got ANOTHER demo on what happens to Deugan after the saucer crash, and though it is revealed in the Dreamstones, it doesn't tell us much... Anyway, that's my two cents, take it as you will...

EDIT: Welp, turns out I was wrong about the 'Get lost' thing. But I DID find a relevant bug that will need fixing. When you go to the trilobite cave and click the 'P' key (Monologue) Rophoph (Unpictured) will complain about the smell. It would be nice if you could fix this, as Steele should be saying something, and not Rophoph.

Okay, well, I found something that you may want to fix, but isn't really a bug. When Steele is walking in spriteform, it shows a flicker of gray which I had to observe carefully to notice it was something that was a little too skinny attached to Steele's arm. Was this programmed in, or is it possible to fix it?

What's wrong with giving out ideas? I understand that you 'have this', but you could still consider ideas. But if you don't want them, fine, I'll stop. Just please don't answer so angrily and brashly to an eager fan. When Megabdi posted the link on the new site the mods said they almost banned him, but didn't want the drama. So please, ignore friendly ideas, but DON'T give me that 'we don't need help sh*t because your idea was in jeopardy. I didn't want to say it and I'm sorry, but please be careful....

*EDIT* I apologize for bursting out, I really shouldn't have said these things...

Well, I have some more ideas for you to ponder...

1) Add some new NPCs. To add to Steeles party, you know. Then VIOLENTLY KILL THEM OFF LIKE THE EVIL DOG YOU ARE! No, I mean more that, for this hack, you'll have to be careful, as that while Venificus is a nice addition, you'll have to be rid of him, by making him teleport away with the new NPCs or something, simply because they aren't in the MARDEK universe and will have to fade somehow...

2) While new items are great, I lust for more. Like a SHIRT for STEELE! Make sure they're relevant to the MARDEK universe though, and seen in-game...

3) I got an idea to get new skills to learn for Steele and then be forgotten later on. Steele learns them, then forgets them at the end of the demo thanks to Venifucus erasing part of that memory and giving him the idea of finding the Dark Crystal before teleporting away. Genius, huh? Anyway, on to idea #4...

4) MAKE STEELE ABLE TO GO TO ITEM AND WEAPON SHOPS. This drove me up the wall in the demos that I could barely go anywhere or buy anything, my dosh was useless!

5) Steele will have to find some mirilixers, as he used one in MARDEK 3 and will probably use more in future chapters...

6) New bosses. Need those. How else will Steele get so damned tough? Also, we need more [PROFANITY] from Steele and a level cap to the current level he is in MARDEK 3. It would make no sense if he was a higher level than he was in MARDEK 3!

7) MUGBERT NEEDS TO BE A [PROFANITYIN'] ALLY!

8) Maybe make some sort of way he gets to the south? He IS on the Southern continent in MARDEK 3.

9) Steele should go through the warport by threatening the security guards. That would be hilarious. Also, he needs to get a boot and shirt item like he does have on in MARDEK 3....

And that's all the ideas I have at the moment, sorry...

I have a few suggestions, if you may. Also, I may as well list the pros and cons of this game...

PROS:
1) Dialogue is great, and it feels like I'm actually playing one of Pseudo's games. Steele is as clever as ever, I just wish he'd punch more things...
2) Story is good too. I was not expecting to see a gay shopkeeper behind the 'evil villain' lair, only to propose that he wanted to marry Muriance. Creepy. Also.
3) Bringing back old characters is nice. To see Venificus at the very end there almost made me scream in delight. Even the old characters like Mercutio and Benvolio also have something new to say...
4) The skills system and passive skills are the same, but the difficulty system seems just as high. I applaud you for that. I just wish Arm Breaker and Stunner didn't take forever to master...
5) Did I mention the humor is great? It seems, again, like a Pseudo game. Keep it up.
6) Less lag then all the other chapters. Good job.

Cons (More like suggestions):

1) The enemies seem bigger. I feel like I'm hitting over-sized enemies, would you mind shrinking them a bit?
2) When you enter the cave in Canonia, someone has already mentioned, Gloria will say the same thing she does in Mardek 3... Hmm... that was unfortunate. It'd be funny if she didn't recognize Steele...
3) The experience points you get is the same when using a strong attack like fierce strike on an enemy. This is different and not as nice, because doing power attacks and such and landing them actually gives you more experience. I'm sure you can fix this though.
4) While old characters come back, we hear little to nothing of Mardek and Deugan, along with Muriance. This is unfortunate, as they are key characters. Would you perhaps include them more in future chapters?
5) Many of the enemies can poison you in the beginning, and if you haven't found an antidote, you're screwed. Would you mind putting in some more antidotes?
6) No new skills for our playable characters! I was expecting Steele to learn stuff like 'Venomfist' and 'Lights out!', but instead we get the same skills. Would you mind making a few up later on?
7) THE MAIN CHARACTER IS STEELE! HE IS A JACKASS AND MUST BE TERMINATED! >:C
8) If you wouldn't mind, IMPROVE THE MAPS! Not only are they ugly, but they are quite confusing as well.
9) I'd like to see a bit more light. Some of us with darker computers must constantly check the map to navigate around.
10) It would be nice to see Steele hitting on Liliana. It would also be interesting to see Polly making suggestive remarks to Steele, who recoils in disgust. Unfortunately, we only see Steele hitting on other girls then them. Shame.
11) I can't seem to stop, can I? Why not market this a bit more, it's a GREAT GAME! Probably one of the best hacks I have ever played...

That's all. I hoped you liked my ideas!

Rating Orb Brock, Lawful Good Artist – joined 7 years ago Does rellgion make you uncomfortable?..XXX.XXX5 years ago
I recently attended church to try to get better versed in the whole topic, and I started to feel uncomfortable. Does religion make you uncomfortable? I mean honestly, when someone asks you your beliefs, do you tell them right out? I always felt a little awkward discussing religion, for fear of being shot down. I am agnostic, after all, so most people in church would hate me. I'm trying to 'blend in', but it is just so gosh darn hard, and I need help. I don't want religious guidance or someone telling me what to believe, but I also want to fit in.. What should I do? I know this post is rather short, but I really want people's insight on how to blend in IN OTHER WAYS BESIDES RELIGION!!!! Like I said, it makes me uncomfortable. So please... anyone bothering to read this just ignore me. I am being an introvert again or whatever you call it. Soon I have to get a job, a life... hooooo everything is so tough!!!!!!!!!! >:C

Anyway yes, discuss please. And by all means, DO NOT TURN THIS INTO A RELIGIOUS ARGUMENT THREAD!!!!
