RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

It would be addictive if it wasn't so freaking laggy on my computer. I had to disable the lighting just so I could walk through town.

Owch. What're your stats again..?

I'm getting pretty good FPS with my 7600GT with HDR and distances on max. Textures look like crap though.

oooh, it's a thread about one of my fav games Biggrin

very addictive indeed. i've started a new character twice now, first one was a thief, 2nd one a plain fighter dude, and 3rd one is going to be a vampire necromancer... (yes i know u cant be a REAL necromancer, but u can get pretty close) Biggrin

it's funnnnnnnnn....

and yeah, it's a bit of a beast on the PC specs. so glad i got my new 3Dcard... geforce 7800GS Biggrin runs ok with some of the detail turned down, though i'd NEVER turn down textures. never. HDR and fancy shadows i can easily live without, though Smile

btw, toucanman, there's a mod for the game that makes the distant land textures look a bit less crappy. search for LandscapeLODTextureReplacement 1.0.zip and Landscape LOD NormalMap Fix 1.0.rar

Oblivion is really fun. However due to the beta patch i lost my level 48 argonian mage with almost every skill maxed out and had around 2 million gp... Uhoh

I had always pick the default mage class. Mages are the way to go. I now have a brenton mage. Stronger than ever im level 37 and i have all spell schools maxed out. I can dish out 240 damage in an instant. My little method of killing in 1-2 hits is simple. Biggrin

Weakness to lightning 100% 10 secs
Weakness to magicka 100% 10 secs
Soultrap 5 secs
(this is a custom made spell its completley harmless but the aftereffect is devastating. I named it "Butter u up")
+
Mages staff of lightning 80pt (40 charges)
=
80*3 = 240

After my opponet falls, I collect their soul with azuras star and keep my lightning staff charged.

Ogres, daedra, EVEN storm atranotches die from this. Fu Storm atranotches are soposto be IMMUNE to lightning. However my spell makes them recieve 160 damage isntead of 240 because of their natural lightning immunity. If in the unforunate event someone survives they probably end up with about 10% HP anaways. So about half a second later i shock them again and put them out. Its so very fun to see people do backflips from getting hit by lightning. Biggrin

Nobody can get close enough to me to harm me. If they do. Im wearing a full daedra armor set with my heavy armor skill at 100, and a daedric longsword that dishes out 40 shock damage per hit with a blade skill of 100. Yes I power level to make sure i gain the maximum HP i can possibly get every level as well as maximum multipliers.

Ive been into elder scrolls since it hit the elder scrolls 3. Great great game!

... I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to RPG and FPS games. Uhoh

The real thing is never what it seems to be.

Yeah, oblivion is a great game, I've probly played it through with 4-6 characters, I wanted to try all the different types(ie Warrior, theif, mage). I play on a 360 too, I love my Xbox. Razz
