51st Skeptics' Circle

It's up. See it at See You at Enceladus.

Glad I got a little plug for the Diplomacy game... Need to see if I can contact Brendan to see how the map's coming.

Withdrawing from the game is FORBIDDEN! Otherwise, the thread's fairly open.

Is pointing out that I never actually agreed to play, but only implied so, forbidden?

1. Did you submit something for me again?

2. The post over at See You at Enceladus only mentions the tag team on Erler, then links to my post on Erler, but links to your post about the argument from intimidation.

3. WTF has he done to my nom-de-blog?

Bronze Dog said...

Yeah, I submitted for you.

Think he might have skipped a copy in the copy-paste procedure, or copied the wrong link.

Akusai said...

Having never read that blog before, I was forced to ask myself WTF he did to grammar, spelling, and syntax. I can only assume English is not his first language, but I cannot confirm this anywhere. Anybody?

On the game thing when is the shoot for start date? I'm assuming we're still a few weeks off?

Bronze Dog said...

Right now, the big thing is waiting on Brendan's map.

The next step is designating a moderator. I might end up doing it myself, but I'd like to be able to play without the conflict of interest.

I might try making my own map, instead, if I can pull myself away from Zelda to get the template changed.

Rev. BigDumbChimp said...

You ever gotten your hands on Neverwinter Nights on the PC?

Bronze Dog said...

Nope. I'm just not much of a PC gamer. The last PC game I got, not including shareware/freeware/demos, was Civ4 for Decemberween 2005.

I have been contemplating FF XI or something.

bourgeois_rage said...

Do I have to be a skeptical blogger to play? Or can I get in on the game too? I've never played, so I'd probably be out early.

Bronze Dog said...

Well, you've left enough good comments elsewhere, I'd certainly count you in.

Rev. BigDumbChimp said...

NWN is really good. Based on D&D rules and nice graphics etc.. It takes some getting used to to deal with all of the controls and such but it's turn based ..sort of... so it is manageable.

Brendan said...

18 players, I'm thinking. That comes out to 144 territories (a nice number, actually), 90 of which will be supply centers. Stil working out the exact landmass balnces and suchlike, but it's a start. If anyone wants to offer up a world history, or something resembling it, I'd definitely be grateful.

Bronze Dog said...

I was about to ask you about your progress, except I can't seem to get a way to contact you. (Your profile isn't public, for one thing.)

Brendan said...

I actually don't have a Blogger profile, I've been sing my google account to log in and post. What's the chance of me severely regretting telling you my e-mail in the comments?

Bronze Dog said...

You can just send something to my gmail account. It should be pretty simple to guess.

Glad I chose an unexpected adjective-noun combination, so I don't have to use lots of numbers.

Brendan said...

Now that I remind myself of this: Since when is NWN turn-based? It's nothing like turn-based. Sure, you can pause and give instrucitnos, but that hardly counts.
