    Does that mean it's proper to agree to steal the tombstone, then sell out my boss to the dark elves, knowing she'll be brutally murdered in ways I can only have nightmares about?
    I sure hope so....

    You, sir, are an utter cad! How could a man of honour even consider betraying his employer in such a manner?

    Once you find out your employer is bad girl, you must kill dark elves and then return to execute your employer. If she has already paid you, you must return the payment after she is dead.

    Ahem. It is improper to even take the quest in the first place. It would be a grievous crime to rob the funerary stones of the elves.

    Well, quite. Regardless, if a man takes a job he is honour-bound to complete it to the best of his ability.

    And being a man of Honour, you should be able to ignore them.

    Why for slave for Honour when one can strive for Glory?

    Talk about off topic! :p

    I am playing a human-male raised my monks. Persuasive, gun-toting, grenadier. There's nothing I cant handle. Especially with my sacred stun grenades. I installed the Machined Plate mod so the strength is modified as it should be. Much like Power Armor. :)

    One problem I have is the Weight of grenades. 20 stone for 1 grenade is a bit much.

    1. Off-topic happens a lot here.

    2. Don't gravedig.

    3. Intersesting character, I never seen anyone play as a gunfighter/grenedier before. Why don't you try an original character, like a retarded halfling fighter, or a half-orc seducter.

    4. Smilies are not your friend.

    5. Don't gravedig.

    I keep trying to get the Admins to not give shovels to the new folks. For gods sakes, there's a pile of the things in the lobby with a sign that says, "Free. Take one".

    Hey puppy, feel free to bury this one. Just remember to keep it well away from the roses, stupid tends to make flowers wilt.

    Hey Xiao, should I be adding a dog with a whole bunch of pits and graves behind your cottage?

    Male Half-Elf Electrical Engineer

    I'm playing as a half-elf technologist, focusing on electrical engineering. I chose the Sickly background for the increased intelligence and hope to achieve a 20 intelligence soon. I'm curious to see how much the extra 10% helps my other abilities.

    My technologist has also dabbled in some of the other technological disciplines: chemistry for the complementary electric charges, herbology for the early-game benefits of heal lite, and smithy for the quest in Shrouded Hills.

    I am also improving my dexterity to become an accomplished melee fighter and dodger. In the future, I plan on becoming a Master gambler as well. I initially wanted to be a marksman with guns, but thought it would be overextending to try to significantly increase more than two statistics.

    My half-elf is also an experience whore, commanding his few followers to Back Off (with the F5 key) whenever possible.

    I think you also need to put a shovel in the inventory of the dog.

    Better still, put the shovel just behind the dog and script the area so that if you approach it (or anything else) you get a warning growl and his reaction to you very quickly drops. Take another step and you're dog-meat.

    I think he just needs to edit it so that all starting players get a free shovel with which to dig up old threads.
