Fractured femur, yo.

Ouch. Hope it mends quick and without pins or too huge of a cast.

Equivalent of fireball? Molotov Cocktails or are those not OOMPH-y enough? I haven't compared them so I don't know.
And yeah, the game is actually pretty bad. Lots of **** nice ideas but holy **** there's a lot of silly issues.

I think they aren't as painful. Or at the very least, I never managed to get as many molotovs out in a short time span. And you don't need throwing for the balls.

Ah, well. Gonna try it again sometime regardless.

Fairy tales aren't there to tell you Dragons exist. They're there to tell you that Dragons can be killed.

True they were lacking a bit. Obvious advantage is that you can stock them up and spam however much you want to when they're necessary though.

If you can find the ingredients.

Smoke grenades always felt kind of pointless, atleast flash grenades had the advantage of blinding people. Although I'm not sure what that actually entailed. The high-level explodey explosive was damn nice though. 

And the gun tree was cool too.

Never got far in the boom departments.
And assuming enough mana potions, you could spam pinpoint flaming death all day long with the spells.
But, of course, Molotovs were just as cheap, given that half their recipe regenerates in pretty much every trash can in the game.
Ah, good times. Looking for tubes to make into flintlocks and rags to stuff into bottles...

Smoke grenades

Yeaaaaaah. No, wait, that sounds like a horrible idea.

Yep. Was fun. Getting fuel was slightly less practical though, but still doable. Although IIRC it was also necessary for the later pyrotechnic weapons and likely also for the flamethrower. :P

Yep. Arcanum. It's pretty old by now and never was super well done but it has some damn nice ideas and other cool stuff.

What pissed me off just now:

Argeus the technician drowned in the lava pit owing to not understanding how that map worked. So close to another HNTR win too.

It also stars one of the more intuitive item crafting system in RPGs. I actually thought it was THE best you can get...

And then I stumbled upon Dungeons of Dredmor's system. Dayum.

What, specifically, was he shouting about?
Getting into people's faces. "What you lookin' at?", "Got a problem?" "Look at that ****, with his bags and ****." still come to mind. Like I said, directed at no one in particular, he was just looking for trouble and/or wanted to be annoying.
"Hey. Hey you. Hey. Hey why aren't you looking at me. Hey.. *repeat*" was the last thing before it made click with me. Bastard kept that up for what felt like eternity and was more likely about twenty seconds.

Best way to piss me off? Make an annoying sound over and over again.

Then again, the rest of it (lying to police, the whole train full of people lying to police) is deplorable. Having been on the receiving end of some pretty bad lies, I hate liars more than anything else in the world. Even more than I hate bad drivers.
Wasn't even lying. Told them he was provoking everybody, then someone shouted over that he started it and the whole thing was out of my control. Heck, I wasn't going to put myself at risk if there was a golden chance to get away without even outright lying. I just needed to shrug and smile a bit ashamed after that and that was my whole questioning.

I don't even think the other passangers where consciously lying either. The train was packed full and it was hard to see what's going on, I guess. And with the other guy getting on everybody's nerves they just assumed. Or so I assume.

Way to go? Badass?
Am I the only one who finds it, while fathomable, more disturbing than laudable??
Thanks! I was starting to feel more than a bit weird about those posts as well. :|
