    Welcome to ENWorld 2

    does no one else miss the news? Not having it available at a glance really seems to defeat the purpose. And really, that's the only disappointment i have with this otherwise good upgrade.

    Old Master Bug List.

    There seems to be a problem with the front page of the site. All of the text is overflowing the boxes. And for some reason, I can't find the news and updates and such. And the recent forum links seem to be missing as well. I hope you can soon restore this very important functionality. Being...

    Do You Use Different Languages In Your Campaign?

    I've banned common from my dragonlance games. I hate the idea that everyone of every race from all parts of the continent, after a global apocalypse, can speak the same language. You know your regional languages and maybe a few neighboring ones. The rest is up to translations, misheard...

    I really enjoy erf, but i can't quantify why. Maybe its because i live and die by those type of strategy games, and because i get all the pop culture. or maybe its cause i just really enjoy the characters and strangely superdeformed yet western art style. i dunno. It's not for everyone, but...

    Does anyone else not like Anne Mcaffery's books?

    i've always enjoyed mccaffrey's early books, simply because i love the world she developed, and the characters. I grew up with them, and must have read them at the right time to get the most out of it. Gene Wolff, otoh... He's definately an interesting writer. Recommend Latro in the Mists...

    Knife of Dreams - SPOILERS!

    and the whole way he broke their shield by worming a strand of power through the nothingness... god, the last half of that book was fantastic. the pinnacle of jordan. I think dumai's well is why everyone has been so dissapointed with the rest of the books since. They've all just been plot...

    Would YOU play AD&D 2e?

    normally? no, i wouldnt. But here in japan, it's pretty much the only game i have available, and the crew are really good folks, so i'm happy to pull up to the table. Systems are immaterial, as long as there is fun to be had. besides, there's something to be said about playing Oriental...

    Knife of Dreams - SPOILERS!

    personally, i love reading the battles between blademasters. Nursemaid Walking Her Dog counters Three Swans Arguing Politics, which leads into A Man Drinks Oosquai And Gets Really Messed Up Before Beating His Children Causing Them To Fight Back, Take Their Mom And Leave The House etc. But...

    Knife of Dreams - SPOILERS!

    just finished. I love jordan again =) A few notes- The last sentance of the book finally confirms that it really is Taimandred =) (recall Lord of Chaos, where demandred is given the command to let the Lord of Chaos Rule, both in the prologue and the epilogue.) I jumped up and cheered when...

    epic doesnt make the game longer, it just makes you progress slower. it's not all that fun =(

    Civ 4 - Excited? [UPDATED pt.2 - Game is out & now PATCHED! Share your thoughts.]

    my main complaint with the game is that it is too dang short. I should _not_ be able to finish an entire game of civ in one sitting.

    Robin Hobb: Recommendations

    I absolutely loved Farseer and Tawny Man, but couldnt get into Liveship at all. I read like the first 100 odd pages, and just put it down, cause i didnt give a crap about the characters or situations involved. The other two trilogies, otoh, are easily some of the best reading to be had in...

    Civ 4 - Excited? [UPDATED pt.2 - Game is out & now PATCHED! Share your thoughts.]

    i'm running the game on a garbage HP pavillion dx4000 lappy, with a crappy integrated vid card that doesnt even meet the bare minimums. The card shares ram with the system itself, so i just added a gigstick, and BAM, civ 4 works just fine on low to mid grap settings. Runs slower than dirt, but...

    Civ 4 - Excited? [UPDATED pt.2 - Game is out & now PATCHED! Share your thoughts.]

    if you click on the city area in the city screen (any spot not being worked by your workers) it acts as an enter key =) My first game was Gandhi, and second was Saladin, and i'm currently on Persia, which has founded every major religion save buddhism. I prefer playing pacifist, but it's not...
