    Hey Tal. How about sticking a link here to the SotW as and when you put up a new one.

    Hey Shrikant, how about shortening that link so the whole page can be viewed without scrolling from side to side (good idea, BTW)? ;)

    The link is already in the first post in this thread. And since the screenshot is changed on a weekly schedule (every Wednesday evening), I don't really think it's necessary for me to point this out here every week. Also, UBB doesn't like the long url format of the screenshot links for some reason, so it can't be made into a managable link short of linking to the thumbnail (which is what I've done above).

    Do you find this in a section of the game, or is this a mod?

    Nope, it's part of the standard tilesets - the same book appears on a desk too, iirc :)

    How did you get so many planetars, Faraaz? I thought five was max for everything and even just one for planetars and devas...

    I smell cheese... Ahh yes! Project Image; one of my favourites! :lol:

    Images of casters are special in several respects, one of the most abusable being their lack of summon limit. Another is that they have all the spells memorised you do (although you can't get an image of an image), so you only ever need to rest to refresh PI! :shake:

    Of course, I don't need to tell you how devastating PI would be with a cleric/mage, do I? Aerie, in spite of her pathetic exterior, is in fact annihilation incarnate... :eek:

    Cheese is right. Yet, if it wasn't for the fact that summoning all of those planetars would take forever, i might consider doing the same thing... if only just to sit back with an evil grin on my face.

    It looks like a convention of some kind.

    Could all these planetars be here to smite evil?!?

    @Chevalier: The Magpie is right...but honestly, I was soloing a Cleric/Mage on insane, and I was getting annoyed by that dratted Hive Mother and stupid druid with stupid insect plague. :grr:

    @Celesialraven: When you've got Robe of Vecna+Amulet of Power+Improved Alacrity (x2 if you want to prep with Greater Malisons etc :p ) its not THAT big a deal. Especially when you get to kick back, relax and watch your minions do your bidding whilst you laugh at the pathetic attempts your enemy makes to defeat your army of Planetars. :evil:

    Cool screenshot (the SoU one). But I must admit I do not remember this particular battle :o . Very embarassing :) Also, what weapons do your henchmen yield?

    Thanks. :) No henchmen for me and the battle was the sir William Rey story in the book you had to "adjust" when going after the Wise Wind. There was a devil in that temple and the priestesses sacrificed the female lead to him.

    Heh, that explains it. I went through the last chapter quite fast, so those Winds quests are a blur to me.

    So what class are you playing? Looks like you have some protection spell on (protection from evil?) and some wisdom/intelligence enhacing stuff (ioun stone or such). Armor and shield, so it cannot be mage. Yielding a sword, so it's no priest.

    I think there are some paladin levels in that character...

    Nice screenshot :)
