Say, I went to Kongregate, checked the comments and discovered a cheat! I defeated Corruptor and Magesblood and guess what? They said that they underestimated me and sent more assassins to to knock me out! Ranked One, Invincible and defeating Bloodster! 

andyth0mpz
Actually if you look outside, the grass is obviously purple. We should discuss this grassy problem in a different topic... 

champion
And the grass is green, Captain Obvious.

sirasa
damit i WANT TO BE IN BOM3 BETA!!!!!!! 

champion
Hang out? Okay, guys, time to stop spam...in this forum only! 

shuwan
Hi, glad to see you guys still hang out here :) "Notable mages" is to give credits to those who helped out during beta, when the game is unbalanced and full of bugs. I have been busy working on other projects and porting Addictive Tripeak to iPhone game. I actually have quite a few flash games finished in beta mode, but doesn't have the time to improve on them. Hope to start working on them next week and get some new games on this site asap! 

hybriiid
Best game in a long time. It still have some bugs, but u just can't get enough of it! :) 

champion
I meant enough to be a notable mage, not enough for a lifetime! 

sirasa
ITS NEVER ENOUGH 

champion
That's enough contribution then. 

michl7
I am mentioned there and I didn't contribute anything except some analysis that lead to a better balancing of the different races. I don't know whether Shuwan still reads here. If he doesn't nobody will get noted in the game, even if the discussion goes on. I think you guys are just a bit late, but surely as noteable as anyone else playing the game. Have fun! 

champion
Contribute to the game. 

shmerby
umm how do i be notable 

champion
Na, fars theez ar boodle tammes, dert ya than? 

sirasa
now these are perfect times ehehehe... 

champion
Those were good times, good times... 

sirasa
i contribuited :( at least for the 3 (whit the ideas o_:() 

champion
The notable mages are the people who have actually contributed to the game. 

andyth0mpz
i just noticed...IM NOT ON NOTABLE MAGES!!! I...urrrmmm...urrrmmm...Completed the game, killing everyone? I was i high level... 

kidrobot
Not really... read it over again and maybe follow the instructions as you play the game. 

champion
Sounds complicated. 

kidrobot
By the way, here's a tip for everyone. When, or if, you encounter Oldhealer, Spellsoak, and Graveanger, you should thank Oldhealer, and take Spellsoak's side. Then, when you become a black or white robe, You can recruit them without battle. Also, if you find them at the right time, then Graveanger should already be a Black robe, and Spellsoak should be stronger and "neutral". Therefore, find Oldhealer in the wilderness of Chaos Desert, and Spellsoak, (I think,) in Burning hill's city. If Black robe, just talk to them and they'll join you. After defeating the black robe guarding him (if you're a white robe,) they'll join you. All can use this strategy, but this was for michli7. Thanks for the help! :D 

kidrobot
Thanks michli7! 

kidrobot
Yeah, OK, that makes sense. That Greentwist or whoever guy is hard to beat though. I always just killed Iceshade and captured hawklight. I'll try that way though. Thanks! 

champion
What he means to say is that...wait, I can't teach it? 

sirasa
HOW DARE YOU NOT KNOW IT im the only person the old healer taught me then i taughted champ AND I DONT LET HIM TEACH GREGORIAN OF HOUSE SHAL FEED THE MAX 

michl7
No, I normally don't read the forums. Just when I see something that looks like a question here, then I answer. On which page of the game forum would I find the relevant entry? Thanks! 

champion
Haven't you been checking the forums lately? 

michl7
at champion: no, what do you mean? at kidrobot: yes, but you have to cheat them and clean the poison in you. it's a bit harder than with white (fight against Blodster in the end is critical, before you can report to Skullrig). 

kidrobot
Is it possible to get black robe great mage? Ive gotton white and neutral. 

champion
Did you also learn the Old Healer's language? 

michl7
Yesterday's suggestion is of course harder as only getting to rank 1. After having won Young Mage Contest, get to rank 11 without traveling (fighting one after the other in arena), take the +4-event there, go home and get Magic Master (for mastering all spells of the clan) and declare yourself neutral. Then go where Mysterious Hermit sends you, look up the areas and beat the mages, until reaching rank 1. Then lose to hermit and fight back up to rank 11 at Chaos desert and do the same trick again. You should end up with something like level 240 (the best I reached so far), rank 1 and Great Mage. 

michl7
wanna get to rank1? easiest take Chaos Desert; first train HA, LA, Life and Mana up to 10; also add the multiplier to 2 and level2 HA or LA to 2; that's enough to win young mage contest (level 54, if you didn't miss any event). Afterwards max up everything execpt HD, LD (leave those at 1, use twice) in a round manner. When your mage gets the B (from magic master) and after having maxed up B, you are already kind of unbeatable. When maxed up everything you are more then level 200 and absolutely unbeatable. Also similarly works with the others, you just have to play around to find the best way to use their specials. Very easy are also Burning Hill and Poison Water. 

kidrobot
Um, so like hey people! I love this game and I wanna be a notable mage but I know that it will never happen. So, I cheated this time for the Burning Hill dude, and after I came in second, Corpsedusk told me, "Yes! Great job! Now everyone will know that our clan is the best!" Even though I had just came in second. :P Please fix this bug! From Kidrobot 

champion
Well, I can't get to rank one. 

michl7
Just wanted to say hi and tell that I still sometimes play the game. I found out, that you get the most skillpoints with neutral, when going to rank1, losing to the Invincible, and going to rank1 the second time after that and now beating the Invincible. You have to be neutral for that, cause otherwise you can't do that, cause of all the missions. But: When you lose rank1, you lose the ring of all rings, but when you recover to rank1, you won't get it back. 

champion
You did? Weird. That's why I play it in Nobstudio. 

nmm123
man i got all of the titles on kong then i got banned sucks 

champion
And how is he going to post if nobody asks him a question? 

dreamsdragon
how do i ask him if he doesn't look? 

dreamsdragon
and shuwan doesnt look at the comments? that seems a little wierd. 

champion
Ask that to Shuwan. 

dreamsdragon
once skullrig told me "you have learned all clan special magics. you should learn clan special magic instead." 

dreamsdragon
then you have2 give it back or fight...cd and pw r overpowered. 

dreamsdragon
what happens if you take the mana orb and then win the young mage competition? 

dreamsdragon
are there any bad endings? and is there a site that lists all endings and titles(and how to obtain them)? 

champion
Take a guess. 

liamiscool6
Where shuwan? 

liamiscool6
0.0 EVERYONES GONE???!!!! NO!!! 

champion
Now we've lost Red and Andy! 

liamiscool6
where everyone been? 

champion
Yeah, I know. 

liamiscool6
hi guys its been ages =D 

champion
Give me my feed or you'll wind up looking like your 'buddies' out back! 

red123
why canned spam why not freshly made 

champion
Where's my evening feed of canned spam?! Every troll needs to be fed canned spam every morning and evening! 

red123
no trying to feed the trolls 

champion
What do you mean? 

red123
Now now play nice 

champion
Fine until now. 

sirasa
and how have u been doin 

sirasa
il just go to the DEATH times 

champion
You don't need the calories! 

ambareesh
The 9 year old strikes again. 

champion
Seriously, what categories are they? 

red123
Hmmmmm thats true but it sounds cooler 

champion
Ah, but my dreams will fight your nightmares! What categories are they anyway? To me, no nightmare is a nightmare. 

red123
The time of Nightmares has come i shall haunt your dreams forever 

champion
Eh? What do you mean? 

red123
No i shall make the Nightmares Time 

champion
Fine, be stuck in the Dark Times! I'm going to the Light Times! 

red123
that doesn't make sense why would you be a high mage without permission and to the idea of busting your friends out this is the first time you heard about the prison 

champion
One is being caught busting your friends out. Another is killing the leader. And, of course, being a High Mage without permission. 

red123
yeah but if attempt to escape would you just die because of the poison and why would you be a prisoner 

champion
You could attempt an escape or, if you're not a prisoner, bust your friend out. However, if you fail, you get hauled to jail. 

red123
yeah cause if I was a prisoner I mean wouldn't you try to break out during the chaos so thats something to add difficulty to the black robes 

champion
You mean prisoner mages? Great idea! 

red123
Maybe get more people in the prison level to try and break them out and make it so they are slightly stronger.I don't know it make sense cause think about it this way in the game we are seen by the other mage is a really powerful mage those guys are just average mage so its harder for them to even fight us on the same level 

champion
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........................I don't know. 

aeron226
well maybe atleast make the black robe weaker because black robes are soooooooooo over powered which is no fun and kinda lame im not whinning ok i beat the game as a white robe 3 times my last time i was rank 5 and i killed more than 16 black mages but.......*forgets what about to say*ohh ya why not make the black robes job a bit harder i mean like when on the guarding job the white mages that came to help are sooooooooooo weak make black robes guest harder and i mean harder with a capital H A R D E R 

aeron226
well when i chose the black mage as a chaos desert it ended up like a cakewalk whoc isnt fun but i still think both side must be equal because theres no challenge being a black mage i mean like f the black mage was like that beforethe black mage must have killed all the white mages before i even started the game soo it justmakes the black mage loook stupid...... 

champion
Besides, the good side's got to win in the end, eh? 

red123
exactly I think it just makes it more satisfying when you beat the bad guys cause you just intensionally picked the weaker side an prevailed 

champion
It makes sense. Evil's got to start off stronger before being toppled by a hero or anything. 

red123
I don't think an endless game is good, I like how the game ends so no not really interested in an endless game.Also to you aeron226 I think its just a matter of skill I was a white robe who became Number 1 mage easily, There seemed to be no difference except that at thee end The black robes you might have a more skill point count but with good strategy and and thinking you could make both types of mages equal.Besides its make slight storytelling sense in that evil has it easier and good has to work harder to defeat evil thats why I think it was made slightly out of balance. 

champion
You mean to choose to continue playing after the end? 

markarontos
I think it would be great if there would be an endless game 

champion
No we don't! 

aeron226
this game becomes too easy if youre a black mage!i think they should make both equal..........................................................................you know do you guys agree do you do you do you c'mon i know you guys wanna agree! 

red123
I guess also guys I want to ask you guys what happened when you first played the game both BOM1 and BOM2 

champion
The player's overpowered, but the computer's not. 

red123
I think burning hill is so overpowered 

champion
I like Burning Hill! Follow the tips and you would be an invincible Burning Hill mage! 

red123
so I really liked how the clans are a lot more balance now don't you champion also whats your favorite clan to play mine is Darkwood 

champion
I couldn't agree more. 

red123
alright this has gone far enough we should get back to discussing the game 

champion
Or the you-are-the-worst-namers-ever ring! 

red123
Or the You-know-what-guys-i-give-up ring! 

champion
Or the I'm-really-leaving ring! 

red123
or the Screw-this-I'm-outta-here-ring 

champion
Or the seriously-name-me ring! 

red123
or the Please-just name-me-already-ring! 

champion
Or the we-can't-name-it ring! 

red123
or the great whatever-it-is-called ring 

champion
Call it impossible-to-name ring! 

red123
it makes sense though if it were sneaky ring it sounds much better 

champion
Never mind. 

red123
Oh all right my bad 

champion
It's the Spy Ring, actually. 

red123
Yeah! with Sneaky ring is like gives one Counter bolt or Sneaky orb increases the power of your Counter bolts 

champion
Definitely! If you have a good relationship with him you can choose to have either a Spy Ring or a Sneaky Orb. It will fit right in! 

red123
meaning you want money in the next one I think that might make it a bit gamey what if instead you have a good relationship with him he so proud of you for being sneaky he gives you an orb or ring or something if you have a bad relationship with him your father decides to teach you a lesson and fights you with you winning makes you the new great mage or if you lose be exiled forever or something 

champion
If you don't get away with it, you can surrender and be a Black Robe, or kill him and be the Great Mage (Black). 

champion
I know! If you have enough tuition from your father, you will get away with it! If you do, you can either sell it to make a quick buck (and get the title 'Shady Dealer') or keep it a secret so you can use it to your own advantage (and get the title 'Secrets Keeper'). 

red123
Get it HAHAHA but it would make the game play more interesting n that the prior games everything is because of your choices what I would like to have is some more random event or thing slightly based on chance.That would make each game play possibly different than the last which is a good thing cause then you get a lot of player replaying to do every single thing. 

champion
You're his son! You know every trick in the book! Get it? Hahaha! 

red123
That makes sense but what if you get caught then what 

champion
By eavesdropping! When you overhear your father talking to the High Mages, that's when you can rechoose your path. 

red123
but how would you find out that is the question 

champion
red, you can still change your alignment. For example, imagine I'm the Great Mage's son. I find out my father is evil and decide to turn good to stop my father. Or I can be evil, helping my father. Or I can even stay neutral, knowing my father became the Great Mage by being the most powerful. 

dex567
I'll thin of it tomorrow. 

champion
dex, you said tomorrow, but that was yesterday. 

armaged0n
I WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the most incredible is that i was wanted,exilied and trapped! 

armaged0n
I have done something really hard,i have won the rank of wanted! It remember me to a movie. 

champion
Not short enough to remember. 

michl7
Hi Shuwan, after having paused with the game for some months, I recently played it through 20 or 30 times with different kinds of mages. Many thanks for putting an effort in better balancing out the different races. Now it's possible to win the black game with Poison- and Ice-Water at maximum ranking (Satan, invincible, great mage). Now it somehow seems to me that Burning Hill is kind of too strong, but it will never be possible to balance this with 100%, and Ice-Water is still the hardest (still can't win it without repeating at least 1 fight, but that's lack of ability on my side :-)). Poison also is very strong now and can beat everybody by just 'Poisonous Wave --> Paralyze'. As this raises opponent's poison by 1 every round (after the paralyze), that's only a question of mana to succeed. After all I have won the game now about 100 times with different races, black, white and neutral. The game is great. Please let me know, if there'll be a bom 3?! PS.: If you don't know civilization 5 yet: It's by far the best civilization ever and for my opinion the best computer game ever. Have a look at it, if you got time. PS2.: The invincible fight of poison is a good example for the 'Wave --> Paralyze'-method. It takes 100 or more moves to take away his 1000 life points, but he never has a chance against. I am quite sure, that there's no other way for poison to ever win this. 

dex567
OK I'll think of it tomorrow. 

champion
Make it a shocker! 

dex567
Sure I'll think of something funny 

champion
Sure, but add in the description in brackets. 

dex567
So I'll just invent a new title? 

champion
It's your turn now. 

champion
Unknown mage: Burp! Have you heard of Theoden? Drunk mage: I know him! He drinks like us! Burp! Unknown mage: Oh no! I accidentally beat him up and took his bottle! Burp! Drunk mage: You took his bottle? Burp! So did I! I'll run away and leave you to get killed! (fainted) 

champion
How about some funning around with the titles? First title: Heavy drinker (you don't care about magic, you care about the gossip. you are truly a heavy drinker) 

dex567
Or maybe they will if you kill mages BEFORE the war... Or you don't even go there... hmm... 

champion
Really? Weird. 

dex567
They don't say anything even if you are "bloodthirst" 

dex567
The guardian of the grave was "awesome"! (so to speak) If I remeber correctly. 

champion
Great idea! I still don't know what they say when you're Nobody, Thief or Bloodthurst. lol very funny when Grave Digger and Punished. 

dex567
We should do a forum of what the two mages say when you get a title! 

champion
I got Bloodthurst at the battle! However, I was also the White Mage, and it showed the drunk mages gossiping about me being the White Mage, not a Bloothurst. Put White Mage first, will ya? 

red123
I don't know about choosing your path at the beginning cause it would kinda ruin some of the choice question where you have to pick that choice cause it is part of your path. 

champion
(yeah, you may have noticed I didn't spam there) 

champion
And I don't think bugs get in the way of 'perfection' if that's what you call it. If it wasn't for imperfection, we wouldn't even live. (or am I watching too much educational programmes?) 

champion
That and the rest of the ideas. (I'm turning into shuwan now!) 

champion
Some bugs really are powerful. In the final battle, Hawklight was killed by Skullrig before but was in the battle as a White Robe! And good idea you got there. Infact, how about choosing your path right at the beginning? How about this: Rogue(evil), Great Mage's son and heir(neutral because you don't know your father's a tyrant), and Refuge(good and one of the last few mages to escape death and capture) 

red123
Actually that would be a pretty good idea starting sort of as the great mage son cause it really opens a realm of possibilities plot wise and make a really intriguing game you should post more in the idea forums 

ichiro97
this game has kept me entertained for hours all separate (not at once) I really enjoyed this game and I hope you will write a sequel(and make it) my own games are very simple and the fact that you came this far with a single game after looking at your last game(chaitic per.) it really seems as if there is a major improvement overall, your original would recieve a 8/10 and this in my opinion would recieve a 10/10 this is why I urge you to continue the series,hmm a random idea might be that you start out as the great mages son? and slowly work your way up and take power yourself(or destroy everything with a roque group that you created) 

red123
sorry I meant There 

dex567
"HERE on Kongregate"???????????? 

red123
Odds are there will be to the series popularity and I don't mean just here on Kongregate there is major talks on how the next one is going to turn out should be interesting 

caprindo
I have been traviling and sick,+ I forgot about this website.The game turned out well.There are still spelling mistakes, though... and i was wondering if there would be a sequel? 

shadow
passed on all neutrial evil and good... i like black robes most cus i can do most of stuff lol and anyway my oter mage "shadow" has bin one of notale mages before new game updated D; 

darren1
hm i still can you need to finish the game on a clan to use the different appearance the next time you use that clan Hope i helped 

killer9696
Why can't you change your appearance anymore? 

darren1
im pretty sure you get it by being a black mage and delivering the three mages heads who tried to rescue wavesurp (i think thats the name) the great mage gives you the stone 

liamiscool6
how do you get the life stone? 

liamiscool6
hi im back been while and shuwan you should show more websites your game maybe go to newgrounds and put it on there 

dex567
Yes I've noticed that too. 

cyw2010
I have not played in a long while so I have a question:Are the poison supposed to repel each other at the end of a turn? Eg: Turn 1)Me:Poisonous Wave=10 poison Turn 2)Enemy:Poisonous Wave=10 poison End of turn 2: Me and Enemy are both cured If one of them is greater, the poison remains after being reduced. 

cyw2010
This game changed a lot I see. I played it again :) Being number 1 means you skip many of the fights,etc make the game more logical. I still love this game very much, and the bugs are, well, not really annoying 

dex567
Nope. You won't gain a title in that way. 

steppenwolf
I thought that you gain that title by just staying neutral. 

dex567
Hey guys I just played the game over again and now I know how to get the "neutral mage"-title. I just rememberd how good this game actually is!I can't realice why I even bother coming to these forums! The game... It's just so good. (If you're wondering I meant BOM2(Duh!!!)) 

champion
You do? Cool! 

dex567
I agree with that champ. 

steppenwolf
I remeber when Shuwan used to tell us what things were changed/ad in the updates... Still, haven't found any bugs for now... YET. 

champion
Ok. Anyway, the music is 10/10. Storyline= 10/10 Graphics= ?/10 Speed= 10/10 

vcordie
Few bugs i've found. When an enemy is doing a low defend, on the little screen that appears when you hover over the enemy it says high defend. Occasinally, if you are doing a combine attack the enemies bolts will slip pass yours despite being on the same "level" 

emanresu
I'm saying there's speculation an impossible badge may be added some time in the future. However, it's not likely. Just wanted to put it out there. :p 

champion
I see you've made friends with Kong, shuwan. And emanresu, what are you saying? 

emanresu
Champion, depends. If you're dealing with Kongregate, it helps to keep the latest version on there, or they're less likely to give you badges (especially). Also if you're nice, and don't just want site views. :p The achievements were great. :D A mod I spoke to briefly on the Kong forums suggested an Impossible for getting 100% of everything. I really hope that is actually made... And I saw Liam a page back. o: If he reads this, does he know how to get the title "Neutral Mage"? 

champion
I thought the latest version of a game was always meant to be in the website it was created in. 

shuwan
Hi guys, book of mages the dark times has finally received badges on kongregate! I am really glad it gets a pretty good score on kong. Also, Jayisgames has done a review for bom, yay! http://jayisgames.com/archives/2010/10/book_of_mages_the_dark_times.php ps. I will update bom on nobstudio soon. Kong actually has the latest version now! 

champion
BOM2 is pretty fun, but got old for me. 

sissebabe
I havn`t used any codes, still I think this is one of the best games on this webside :D 

darren1
well if the develpoers did not take away the achieves i got when they were updating it i would be prob halfway and yeah i know its basicly inpossible to avoid that 

liamiscool6
talk about the game =D anyone finished all the achivements? 

emanresu
According to his religion (allow me to assume an Abrahamic religion) God is beyond humanity, thus can't be counted in "Everybody". And I happen to know that your religion is wrong, because it suggests that I am not perfect. And I am perfect, which means it's wrong. And since I'm perfect, when I say it's wrong, it must be wrong. Thus I'm perfect. See? It all works out. :D 

darren1
played it again became black mage this time yay and again great game only thing i have a complain is the spelling and sentances can but i know it isent your fault :) and like my new pic WOW is awsome (World of Warcraft for you champion :P) 

emanresu
We hate bugs because they stand in the way of perfection. :( And some of them are poisonous. 

shuwan
Thanks. Will change it in next patch. :) Dang you Soundinghorn! I hate bugs too they just keep appearing. 

steppenwolf
Why does everyone hate bugs? 

champion
Pretty good bug to fix. 

steppenwolf
Oh, what the hell... I'm playing this game for the... let me see... 23rd time (not kidding) to get the titles. 

emanresu
Yes, like I said. And it's a simple enough mistake to make.. Soundinghorn probably automatically inherits the title, and your character can unlock it. But yes, good bug to fix :p 

champion
Actually, whatever the scores are, there are 2 white mages. You and Soundinghorn. Fix that bug! I doubt you put enough work into this! (sorry about that) 

emanresu
Also, it's come to my intention that Soundinghorn always has the White Mage title in the final battle....even if you're the White Mage. 

emanresu
Thanks for all your help, have them all now except 25. How could I ask Liam? 

dex567
Also I've found a bug.When this game was launched there came (achievments)I haven't got any of them.Still I've got the (thing that I'm not going to spoil) 

dex567
8: Nobody:Champpion told you 15: The Fearless Be a white mage,and lose the battle against the antidote maker or (maybe I'm not sure)the assasin,and refuse from the poison 20: Avenger:kill the one who you refused to learn stuff and who threated you. 25: ( I haven't found it) Or then It's if you refuse to join either robes.(Ican't remember) 28: Great Mage (White):Champion told you 

steppenwolf
outsidebox: Thanks for clearing the doubts of what does 'RPG' stands for. 

shuwan
outsidebox: Welcome to nobstudio! I'll upload to newgrounds maybe 1 month later. I amg getting lots of good suggestions from kongregate so I'll improve on the game before releasing to other sites. emanresu: I'll let other members to answer the questions :) Maybe We can start a strategy/spoiler thread? oh and outsidebox is right RPG stands for "role playing game" 

champion
I'm wasting my time here. You tell him, liam. I know how to get the titles, but I just can't explain it properly. 

champion
Nobody's the default title. For 28, beat the black robes in the great war and lose against the neutral mages. 

emanresu
Also just made an account to say how awesome this game is... (: I came over from Kongregate, hope to make it as successful as possible over there (3.93 at the moment). I'll ask some people to rate it highly. Anwyay, I could find most of the stuff myself, but if I may ask, how do you get the following titles?: 8: Nobody 15: The Fearless 20: Avenger 25: Neutral Mage 28: Great Mage (White) Thanks in advance. :D 

deadfire13
this game was so amazing and epic! It matched Epos, for me! I loved this!!! WOOT! Good job, man. 11acf2a702fc3947e13bbb546f02c778d1286269390829 and i didn't cheat 

outsidebox
A matter of fact, I made my account just to say how good it is. When are you releasing this on Newgrounds? 

outsidebox
I've never played a game more addicting than this. Good work. I hope you make a new one someday. RPG stands for "role playing game" 

steppenwolf
Anyway, it's good to hear about you again Shuwan. 

steppenwolf
I think that RPG is 'Real Player Game' or something like that. 

champion
My three favourite game categories are: Strategy, Adventure and RPG. Anyway, what does RPG stand for? 

shuwan
champion: I'll probably upload to armorgames a few weeks after. Wow 4.10 is hard to get! But bom2 is getting a good score on kongregate so I am happy about it. After all bom2 is an rpg with lot's of text, not the most popular genre. dex567: No problem :) Appreciate everyone's help~ I'll probably add a page to consolidate all the strategies mentioned in the forum. 

champion
I think you were already a notable mage anyway. 

dex567
Wow thanks! Anyway sorry that I was so rude. :) 

champion
shuwan, they will only make badges if it's rated at least 4.10. Also, are you putting it into Armorgames as well? Armorgames and Kongregate are like alliances over games! Most of their games are the same! 

liamiscool6
Congrats shuwan on getting it on kongregate lots of people probably gonna start going on nobstudio now =D 

shuwan
Hi guys, just updated the game. Nothing major added, just a few typo noticed while translating it (not even 1/5 done! That is really a lot of text). Anyway, dex567, you are in notable mages :) I myself is a firefox user. But I realize firefox is not very friendly with flash player. Crashes a lot and have some cache problem which might cause the black screen some of you experienced. Lastly, the game is finally on kongregate! Hope they will make some badges for it(but i doubt they will). 

champion
You are a notable mage, dex. 

dex567
I mean I told you about the blackgreatmage-cleanensepoison-retreat-bug. 

dex567
And I want to be a notable mage! 

champion
I use Mozilla Firefox. 

steppenwolf
(Champ is obviously going to make an stupid observation about that) 

steppenwolf
Yeah, I agree, IE is too slow and it sucks, I use Google Chrome. 

darren1
Internet explorer i said i dont like and i have to use it to get on games on nob studio 

darren1
fixed need to use IE i hate this program :P 

champion
Blank? Better ask shuwan. 

darren1
ern anyone else having problems opening games and playing them mine stay blank when i open soloution? 

darren1
ah right champion >_> 

champion
How do you know it was from Chinese Zombie? And darren, I already knew that. 

darren1
Brill game if i dont join White and Black Robes and stay neutral i always win :P Much better inprovment than the first and Champion you become a notable mage by helping develop the game (i think) 

steppenwolf
He said it, and his avatar is a pic from the game. 

steppenwolf
Dude, do you even know that Shuwan it's working in 'Chinese zombie'? 

champion
I think it's 'BOM3'. How about calling it 'Book of Mages: The Evil World'? 

steppenwolf
I have reasons to believe that the next game that will come up is 'Chinese zombie'. 

champion
Anyway, when I checked the BOM2 forum, there were plenty of posts from people I don't know. But they're not posting anymore? 

shadow
olmost defeated final oponent on game 

champion
You have to beat the Neutral mages to avoid getting assasinated. 

sirasa
WTF IN THE YEAR 235 I WAS MURDERED BY A GROUP OF VERY POWERFULL MAGES (THE NEUTRAL GUYS PROBABLY YEAH) WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIGHT EM 

sirasa
IN THE LAST BATTLE (FINNAL ONE BEETWEN WHITE ROBES AND BLack robes) IN THE MIDDLE THE DARK WOOD WAS ALMOST DEAD I WAS GREAT MAGE AND LEADER HE DID TRADE LIFE AND KILLED ME Always like that!!!!!! 

delusion
Great game no doubt. Shuwan, you're a genius. I absolutely love the game. I'm about to play it again once more (4th or 5th time) just cause i'm waiting for a part 3 (: 

champion
shuwan, have you got some ideas about BOM3? If so, say them in the 'Ideas for BOM3' forum. - Champion 

shuwan
ernestlee: Thanks for the great review! lupincito: I have contacted Fizzy regarding putting up the game again on their website. Hopefully they will resolve the problem quickly. 

lupincito
I played the game on Fizzy, I had almost completed all the titles, when the game dissapeared from the page! -.- So I'm almost collected all the titles again. The game's SO great! Good work! P.S: Sorry for my English!  

steppenwolf
ernestlee, you're description was so good, that I feel like I'm going to cry... 

champion
Hello, ernestlee. 

ernestlee
Book of Mages 2 is an extremely upgraded version from the original Book of Mages. The storyline splits into several selections throughout the game which gives a reason to play it again after finishing :P Other features that've been upgraded were the Graphics and the Skills in Combat, The Graphics now look amazing, A very noticeable improvement from the original, And the Combat System has also been altered a considerable amount, But all for the better. In addition to the many new features, It also now includes a more detailed and indepth "Book of Mages" within the game (The Ranking) In which your ranking will actually affect you in game, And it's actually quite satisfying to hear what the game describes you as, As you go through the storyline and become stronger. Edging near the end, You'll find that it's really worth it to get to the Top 10 Mage's Ranking as you'll get special treatment during the War which makes really all of our lives easier! Additions to the storyline include relationships involving people in the game, And also missions given to you as you go on. It's also nice to be able to choose between the 3 types of alliances for mages, Though the missions given are quite similar to each other. While missions were included originally, Relationships now come into play as these also play a part on your charisma during missions which also help or give a disadvantage. Overall, Book of Mages has gone through a very big improvement and will not disappoint a gamer. Upon playing, You'll find also attitudes involving the characters and an implement of feeling is actually given. 

liamiscool6
i need life stone and im done now =D 

liamiscool6
IVE DONE ALL THE TITLES 2 ITEMS TO GO AND IM DONE!!!!!!!!!! =D thanks lebronmvp to get the thief achievement you only have to save arroway and help witchthorn so close to finish just assasins ring and life stone and im done =D 

champion
Try it. I'm not in the mood to try it. Must............ be............. ranking............ one! Arrrrrrrrrhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Too hard! 

lebronmvp
I'm not sure but I think you get thief by taking Sandstorm's first item (Chaos Desert) and then saving Arroway (Burning Hill). Then you go to Witchthorn and help him kill the guy he is fighting. After you say you are helping a friend you get the thief title. 

liamiscool6
does the thief achievement work because ive tryed it for ages?? has anoybody done it? 

liamiscool6
cus its fun =D =P has anybody completed the achievement? 

champion
Everybody: Thank you! Just steppenwolf: You live in the southern hemisphere? 

thegamer657
Yeah, congratz, champ!!! 

liamiscool6
congratz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! champ =D and where have u been steppenwolf? =P 

steppenwolf
You got into the notable mages! 

steppenwolf
Hey, Champ! Congratulations! 

liamiscool6
i cant figure out theif ive been trying for ages ive got them all but that 1 -.- 

liamiscool6
does anybody know what theif is i need it =D!!!!!!!!! oh and to be white robe traitor go see hawklight about his secret and then loose against darktracker then when he takes you as prisoner say i will join the black robes and then just continue on the side of black robes and you will get it and mercenary is when your a neutral mage and you join the fights in the dark alleys and you help the black robes on both wars the wars are at (ice land and dark wood) 

liamiscool6
oh and you know when you get the punished achievement and you go back to rank 99 ive got back to rank 1 again i thought there might of been an achievement for being rank 1 twice also when you become rank 1 again you dont get the ring of all rings back 

red123
How can you become a white robe traitor and a mercenary 

liamiscool6
oh thats the easy bit when your rank 1 keep asking him who should i challenge to increase my rank he gets annoyed =D and says he will send you to rank 99 i cant wait just theif to find out and ive finished!!!! 

ilvonful
its accualy kinda easy to be rank 1,if your not from black or white robes,and how do you accualy annoy that misterious hermit? 

champion
Got it?! I can't possibly kill over 20 mages! 

champion
What about thief? 

shuwan
A small update to fix the conversation problem liamiscool6 mentioned. Also I double checked "Bloodthurst" Title. Sorry it wasn't working correctly previously, but it is fixed now. I figure you guys should have gotten it, all you need to do is kill 20 or more mages in the game :) 

champion
Simple! Although it's hard to be ranking one. 

champion
To get Punished, when you are ranking one and keep on annoying the mysterious hermit until he fights you, then lose the fight and get the title. 

liamiscool6
so close on completing it 3 to go does anybody know how to get the titles: thief, bloodthurst and the punished also when you get captured and iceroot saves you when you escape it says you must go report to skullrig when you've got to go to Burning hill and report to the magic master 

liamiscool6
oh and thanks shuwan for adding the names for the titles and items now ill be able to finish it quicker =D getting close =D!!! 

liamiscool6
i agree i think it should be an reward =D but i think you should have to complete titles and items because items isnt a hard 1 but titles is =D as there are some you will get that you never had and thank you ilvonful for your help also ive already got thoose but i jsut checked the achivments i think i must of left the game when i got them achivemsts and the 1 i didnt get was fearless so im gonna try get that one now thanks for that ilvonful 

shuwan
Hi all, An update been uploaded. Version 1.36 1. Fixed the items achievement 2. Fixed Hawklight & double mages in last battle(This bug just keep appearing, dang it!) 3. added a new page Book of Mages 2 Titles and Items Lists 4. Titles and items are updated in Achievements once you received it! Don't have to complete the game to get it updated. champion, your name is added in notable mages :) Anyone helped out during beta, if somehow I miss out and you wish to be named, let me know! What should the reward for getting all the titles&items be? How about the cheat to win or lose battle instantly? 

ilvonful
title 2 is black mage (leader of black robes) title 15 is the fearless,i forgot how you achieve that one (arent afraid of dying) title 23 is guardian of the grave (guard the grave 2 times) title 32 high mage of black robes (get promoted) and yeah hope this kinda helps liam,even though i cant figure out half of the titles you were saying either 

liamiscool6
nononono i dont think that i think you did better than me i didnt mean it like that soz i might be wrong it might be something else sorry dude also has anyone done theese tittles? Title 2 4 8 9 10 14 15 21 23 25 32 wat are the name of thoose titles i need them =D so i can get them all i got all the others 

champion
What?! Are you saying I didn't help at all?! You can't be serious! shuwan! Is it true? 

liamiscool6
yes theres a bug of the items they dont show up but the titles do and ilvonful i dont think its about the game i think its about helping the game on saying about all the bugs and recommending things about the game not if you can play the game but thats just wat i think. because if it was about being good at the game i think everyone be on the list cus its easy to complete the game and be rank 1 and great mage =P 

ilvonful
i think i deserve to be notable mage cuz...just read the ranks:im Darkwood,Neutral,Number 1 in the book of mages and im the Great mage 

champion
By the way, there's another bug. I gained items, but there not in the achievement page. 

champion
And ilvonful, I agree with you. How do you become a notable mage? 

champion
There's a bug. In the great war, some mages appeared twice. Also, Hawklight appeared in the battle when he got killed by Skullrig. Please fix this! 

ilvonful
cuz i want to be one 

ilvonful
hmm what do you have to do to be a notable mage accualy? 

champion
To be a hermit, if you're a neutral mage and refuse to attend the Great Mage election, then you get the title by losing against Shiverhorror. 

liamiscool6
now many titles to go =D i found a new title ive never had and ive almost got them all its hermit =D i thought being a rubish mage and then i became a hermit at the end =D 

liamiscool6
Cheers =D and urs is good too =D im guessing that book of mages 2 is finally finished =D its been fun helping out even though didnt help out that much and the having to complete with a clan as a mage to change the look of ur mage is a really good idea ive done all of that im working on getting all the items and titles now can i also say could you get a bonus if you get all items or titles like starting of with more mana or know all moves or anything like that but its been great =D 

champion
Isn't that something that can make me a notable mage? 

champion
Why am I not on there? Once, I was a Burning hill mage and I beat the Black robes. I was truly strong, despite being beaten by Darklove at the final battle. 

liamiscool6
Thanks for putting my name on notable mages shuwan 

champion
Go to the BOM2 forum, red123. 

red123
Why can't you change your appearance in the beginning because in the beta we were able to.also the item in accompaniment dose not show any thing even though i have quite a bit of items hopefully this is just a bug you could fix Thanks 

champion
I'm so weak without the cheat! And there's still some bugs! You launched BOM2 when it still has some bugs?!
