    Personal Climate Change

    It's been really cool and rainy for April/May here, but now the nice weather is finally starting. Of course, now people will all complain about how hot it is until September.

    What have you been reading recently?

    Ooh, I just finished reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy, it was very good. I'm looking forward to watching the movie, but I'm sure they'll botch it somehow. I also read The Fourth Realm Trilogy by John Twelve Hawks. It's a very interesting series of books about parallel universes, specifically about travelers who can visit the other realms and about a shady government agency that wants to eliminate them. It's also describes how the government is using the internet and video cameras to watch it's citizens. Right now I'm reading The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson. It's about a man who wakes up in the hospital from a car accident to find a mysterious woman watching him who proclaims that they have known each other since the 13th century.

    Games similar to Spiderweb Software games

    Try Aveyond, it's a huge world to explore with lots of quests and a turn-based combat system. I had lots of fun playing it anyways. There's also sequels and such.

It is the same flimsy justification for having important, powerful people throw fate-of-the-world type quests at nobody adventurers that we have seen from Exile 3 all the way through Geneforge 5 and Avernum 6. Sounds like the plot of every rpg I've ever played, like Neverwinter Nights, Dungeon Siege, Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance, Sacred and yes, the Spiderweb series as well....seriously, you're either a promising student that gets thrown into battles between good and evil or your a lowly adventurer that gets thrown into battles between good and evil. My point is every rpg does this, not just Spiderweb, lol.

    Rats! I need a mouse!

    I usually use a mouse that comes with the computer, unless it stops working, then I buy a new one. Logitech and Microsoft are my preferred brands. I don't like wireless mice, because I end up having to change the batteries every 3 weeks which is not acceptable to me. I also like optical mice and not the trackball ones. Oh and yes, it needs to go into USB too.

    Eschalon Book 2 is out for Windows.

    Oooooh, awesome! Downloading and installing as I type...hehe
  7. Mantracker is awesome, you'll have to let us know whether you get accepted so we can totally watch the episode! As for the question, I wouldn't discuss abortion, the death penalty or sex. I guess it would be a pretty boring dinner party then.....

    recommend me some good fantasy books?

    I'm surprised no ones mentioned David Eddings yet! If you're looking for some good fantasy works to really sink your teeth into, then his Belgariad and Malloreon series are really good. Both series have five books, and make sure you get the two companion novels: Polgara the Sorceress and Belgarath the Sorcerer.

    Eschalon Book 1

    I've downloaded the demo and I liked it a lot, I've considered purchasing it a couple of times. The only thing that stopped me was that I've never finished the demo, I've always been distracted by some other game. But I really did like it, the only part I didn't like was that the traveling seems to be really slow.

    Very nice avatars Diki! I like them a lot, but am still on my X-Files/Scully kick for the moment.
