I can't believe, I had this signature since the beginning of the year, and I had written "Start" instead of "Star". Embarrassing. :oops: Apr 6, 2012

        Oh crap, sorry! I forgot to reply to you last time I saw this message. Anyway, I more or less gave up on "The Star that Shone Blue", because the game was not going anywhere. It wasn't a total loss, because trying to make that game made me understand better how a certain style of game worked, but it also made me realize that I was pursuing too many objectives that are contradictory.

        I am still working on a game, somewhat similar in focus, but giving up the idea of being a "Dying Earth story". That is not to say I won't draw from that well, but I realize now that it would be silly to expect a game that focused on "problem solving" would be able to always keep to that style.

        Bummer. But at least you are working on something else.

      Aparently Sillelak has dibs on the Batlin avatar from SI, and I am pretty sure I have seen someone with the one from BG.

      I am a little bit confused about this new forum software... Is this thing I am writing in right now like that Twitter thing?

        Looks like it. But there's no "recent posts" option. Unless you're following someone. Weird.

        Hey I can now "twit" about small-time Shelter thoughts without trolling the main thread and misleading people into thinking there was a serious update.

    Hello people!

    My name is Alex and I came a long while ago to the Codex, trying to understand a little how role playing games work. I have always been fascinated about them, and what possibilities there are in creating them.

    I am mostly interested about the design of these beasts and what lessons we can take from the past games, whether they are computer ones or of the kind you play on a table with friends.

    I also enjoy other types of games, specially adventures and strategy ones.

    Signature

    All I'm saying is simply this, that all life is interrelated, that somehow we're caught in an inescapable network of mutuality tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.
