  1. Can confirm. I've played BoA on my Windows 10 computer in the past week. I've also played the original Nethergate, which leads me to assume that only the Exile games will have difficulty running.
  2. I finished The Intended. It didn't suck as much as I feared. I read Marrow which is a bad book that I read because a cute girl gave it me to read. I read some of Amy Gerstler's poetry (Dearest Creature) and it was super good and fun and inspiring. I read Moderato Cantabile again because it is perfect and I wish to hold it inside of me forever. I just started reading a new translation of The Stranger (interestingly called The Outsider) and comparing it to my favourite translation.
  3. Oh no. I think I made a mistake. You should play Three Twenty-Three. That's my Warrior's Grove scenario. You should skip Phew For a Minute, because that's the one which is just Radiohead lyrics. ... This is the problem when literally all of your work can be finished within an hour.
  4. So far this year I've read: Child of God. It was a wonderful holiday read, full of cheer, goodwill, and succinct, biting, and elegant writing. The Princess Saves Herself In This One, which was honestly not that good, and only really worth it if you want to see how not to write poetry. I had to pretend I liked it because it was a gift. And that's sad, because the subject matter was good. It was just tumblr-level poetry. Which is to say, MY level of poetry. We which I've been meaning to read for a while, on Nayld's recommendation, and which was absolutely worth the two hours it took to get through. If I had one complaint, it was that 1984 and Brave New World ruined it for me, but it's brilliant to see the seeds that it planted in Orwell and Huxley, and the breakdown of logic in the face of humanity was probably better handled here than in either of the other two books mentioned. I also started The Intended, but I'm probably not going to finish that because it sucks
  5. Just a quick one - skip Three Twenty Three. It isn't an actual scenario. Also, a couple of my scenarios will trash your party (KH and El Presidente and maybe OoS I can't remember?). Just something to be aware of.
  6. I have come across the term 'hugemassive' before, but only colloquially, and only to mean, well, huge massive - and never in reference to Spiderweb. 'Bob', meanwhile, is something I only associate with the SW/Blades community, and I've never heard of it outside of here.
  7. I'd still play! I sometimes do with older scenarios! And, I'm perpetually plinking away at making new stuff. I'll have a weekend where I'll do a lot, and then weeks where I don't touch it, but there is A Something!
  8. (as an aside, I also have both Windows and Mac versions of Nethergate, should Tyran lose his copies)
  9. Tridash and I ate pizza and explored London this afternoon, which means he's now on the chart.
  10. (Yes, I can confirm it works on 64-bit Windows 10. I had a screenshot when I proved this a while ago. In fact, it may have been Tyran I was showing!)
  11. Now that these are more manageable, I'll tackle some more. I find it stressful when there's too many. 465. Ten Million Pounds of Sludge -- Made the monkey go to heaven ...and there are lots of references I can still see but which I can't match up.
  12. Hmm. 485. The Analysistrata -- Forcing a peaceful resolution through logical retention Lysistrata is, of course, the famous Grecian story of how Lysistrata aims to end the Peloponnesian War by persuading the women of Greece to withhold sex from their husbands. The idea is that by withholding sex, the men will be forced to find a peaceful resolution to the conflict. The PDN/clue also play on anal retention, and therefore psychosexual development, and honestly it's been a long time since Freud and all I really got was anal and retention.
  13. Look on this thread, ye Mighty, and despair!
  14. I'm not sure why I never posted my results to this before, because I sure remember talking it... Anyway: https://cdn.calref.net/files.calref/12/a9d4f065_IPIP-NEO-Narrative-Report.html "Highlights": EXTRAVERSION: 47 (Your score on Extraversion is average, indicating you are neither a subdued loner nor a jovial chatterbox. You enjoy time with others but also time alone) AGREEABLENESS: 97 (Your high level of Agreeableness indicates a strong interest in others' needs and well-being. You are pleasant, sympathetic, and cooperative) CONSCIENTIOUSNESS: 16 (Your score on Conscientiousness is low, indicating you like to live for the moment and do what feels good now. Your work tends to be careless and disorganized) NEUROTICISM: 58 (Your score on Neuroticism is average, indicating that your level of emotional reactivity is typical of the general population. Stressful and frustrating situations are somewhat upsetting to you, but you are generally able to get over these feelings and cope with these situations.) OPENNESSL 93 (Your score on Openness to Experience is high, indicating you enjoy novelty, variety, and change. You are curious, imaginative, and creative.) I feel that Neuroticism should've been higher ('anger', for instance, was only 14?) but I did tick a box saying that this wasn't true or real so it's all okay.
  15. Yes. Micael is in the UK still as far as I am aware. Nico definitely met him in the UK.
