Separate Weather audio from Game audio, so that I can turn the howling wind down without having to turn everything else down as well.

Can you build one with scrap metal, wood, and stone? How do you suggest they be built? Why can't I aim one towards the ground and fire on the inbound tribe?

I for one think turrets are too easy to build. We at least need some kind of microprocessor unit, as well as a motion sensor array, *and* some means of telling friends from foe (programming, in addition to tags of some kind).

I hope that there are well-organized Slave Revolts. Including the slaves arming themselves, freeing one another from their cells, and killing any incapacitated colonists.

Also, Roving Spartacus - AND the Night of Vespers.

It looks as though Voting is done.

We have a tie between:

Theophrastus, Trap-Choice, and Ned Ludd.

Hopefully Tynan will give us Ned Ludd for free (Look him up [ The Historical Figure]). I'm going with Theophrastus.

The game was so awful I had to come here to tell you.

It's a scrolling shooter. I hate those. The title is misleading.

That is the title of the game. How it could be any more accurate than that, I don't know.

I am sorry that you don't like the genre, and that you felt so strongly about it that you decided to make a post about it. I look forward to the release of the game that you designed, coded, and modeled yourself.

Gah! I forgot Scimitars.

Oh - and let's get a Trench Gun (Shotgun with a Bayonet attached).

Human.

Maybe Xenohumans (Gravity Dwarves/Giants) and genetically altered animals (talking dogs and primates, and such).

An idea I got while reading some posts around here:

A change of the raider/visitor/animal warning (maybe only for hard mode?):
-You don't get any warnings from the incidents itself anymore
-You need to place perimeter sensors
-You get the messages when a raider/visitor/animal comes within 20 cells of the sensor

I like this. If/When we get fog of war, this should be included.

I'd be fine with Xenohumans, as per the lore. Just don't make them take up trait slots. I want a Gravity Giant (which should have some benefit, even though they are weaker - maybe reach?)

TERENCE, this is stupid stuff:   
You eat your victuals fast enough;   
There can't be much amiss, 'tis clear,   
To see the rate you drink your beer.   
But oh, good Lord, the verse you make,          
It gives a chap the belly-ache.   
The cow, the old cow, she is dead;   
It sleeps well, the horned head:   
We poor lads, 'tis our turn now   
To hear such tunes as killed the cow.          
Pretty friendship 'tis to rhyme   
Your friends to death before their time   
Moping melancholy mad:   
Come, pipe a tune to dance to, lad.   
 
  Why, if 'tis dancing you would be,          
There's brisker pipes than poetry.   
Say, for what were hop-yards meant,   
Or why was Burton built on Trent?   
Oh many a peer of England brews   
Livelier liquor than the Muse,          
And malt does more than Milton can   
To justify God's ways to man.   
Ale, man, ale's the stuff to drink   
For fellows whom it hurts to think:   
Look into the pewter pot          
To see the world as the world's not.   
And faith, 'tis pleasant till 'tis past:   
The mischief is that 'twill not last.   
Oh I have been to Ludlow fair   
And left my necktie God knows where,          
And carried half way home, or near,   
Pints and quarts of Ludlow beer:   
Then the world seemed none so bad,   
And I myself a sterling lad;   
And down in lovely muck I've lain,          
Happy till I woke again.   
Then I saw the morning sky:   
Heigho, the tale was all a lie;   
The world, it was the old world yet,   
I was I, my things were wet,          
And nothing now remained to do   
But begin the game anew.   
 
  Therefore, since the world has still   
Much good, but much less good than ill,   
And while the sun and moon endure          
Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,   
I'd face it as a wise man would,   
And train for ill and not for good.   
'Tis true, the stuff I bring for sale   
Is not so brisk a brew as ale:          
Out of a stem that scored the hand   
I wrung it in a weary land.   
But take it: if the smack is sour,   
The better for the embittered hour;   
It should do good to heart and head          
When your soul is in my soul's stead;   
And I will friend you, if I may,   
In the dark and cloudy day.   
 
  There was a king reigned in the East:   
There, when kings will sit to feast,          
They get their fill before they think   
With poisoned meat and poisoned drink.   
He gathered all that springs to birth   
From the many-venomed earth;   
First a little, thence to more,          
He sampled all her killing store;   
And easy, smiling, seasoned sound,   
Sate the king when healths went round.   
They put arsenic in his meat   
And stared aghast to watch him eat;        
They poured strychnine in his cup   
And shook to see him drink it up:   
They shook, they stared as white's their shirt:   
Them it was their poison hurt.   
 - I tell the tale that I heard told.   
Mithridates, he died old.

A.E. Houseman - Terrence, this is Stupid Stuff.

I, too, am the King of Kings.

Darn, when I saw the thread title I was hoping it would be about those god-awful dinosaur romance novels.

(seriously, look up Christie Sims on amazon and behold her crimes against literature and nature alike)

Ugh. I just did.

That looks like a guy, selling them for 99 cents under a girl's name in the hopes of making money from people on the internet. And by all accounts, it has worked.

I could never do that. The shame of knowing that selling such crass fodder even made up a small section of my income would be enough to make me put the sword to my chest. Well, not really. I'd probably use a gun.
