The membership is full of experienced roleplay gamers eager to guide you towards the goal of a polished campaign world that your players will look forward to taking part in. So what are you waiting for? There's an entire group of people waiting to meet you, all you have to do is take the plunge.

No if I do that you'll know. I'd never just leave without notice or prep.

Right now it's just that I'm in the middle of some pretty heavy school stuff. I'm basically living out of my university's CS lounge right now.

That shouldn't last forever though.
I was more worried that Nomadic had decided to retire without telling anyone :p
My plans for a coup have been uncovered!


No, really, it drops you if you haven't been on IRC in quite a while.
That might just be an automatic thing where my IRC account was dropped from otherworlders. I haven't really been around much except to check in from time to time on the site though so not surprising
How come Nomadic was dropped from the founders list on #thecbg? Just noticed that while I was idling.

Okay bad video timing on Gyorg fight, but the point is both are inhaling, and you have to make them inhale deadly things. (Gyorg the mines).
Okay so there was a sale on 3DS's so I picked on up with LoZ majoras mask. I've been binging the crap out of this game cause it's my favorite, but i got to the gyorg fight. They turned it into the fight with the lungfish from Psychonauts...
Looks like I'll be getting me to the cinema.
Any who haven't seen Fury Road, get ye to the cinema. How often does a crazed opera of carnage get fused with dense world-building and smart social politics, all in a big-budget movie?
Tis ok. Technology is a two-edged sword. Can't complain too much when it cuts you. smile
Sorry about your IRC issues, Rose! My internet decided to be shit at just the wrong moment, too.

My best recommendation is to get a discrete IRC client like IceChat or Smuxi.
Sweet. I'm working on-and-off most of today, but I will try to drop in when I can.
'tomorrow' being Monday, May 11th. Just to be clear.
For those interested or potentially interest in OTP I will extend an open invitation to join me on IRC at #nes on to discuss it with me - or better yet with my players!

If you see ChiefDesigner, Iggy or Morrow in particular I suspect they would be happy to talk about it with you.

The channel is most active in the evenings EST.

Of course, I am also on our very own #thecbg on if you are more comfortable with that.

I should be available almost all day tomorrow for a consultation or just a general chat.
Mieville mentions The Blue World as one of The Scar's influences, I think.
I hadn't heard of Vance's book. That sounds perfect. Thanks!
For oceanpunk: Windhaven (Martin/Tuttle) is pretty good, though it's about gliding, not boats. Vance's The Blue World is great (a prison-ship crashes on a kraken-infested ocean-planet and must rebuild society). Tim Powers' On Stranger Tides is supposed to be good (haven't read it, but I like Powers' other work).
