The Lost Chat: Gaming Edition

  1. LightSol: Have you ever larped or role played any other way in your life? Got into AD&D in a big way during grad school.
  2. LightSol: Has one of your novels made into a game? Not professionally. Once, a long time ago, some fan made an online Starfish sexual-abuse role-playing game with rules like “No character shall rape or kill another character without approval from the CEO or the victim’s player.” I don’t think it ever went anywhere, though.
  3. LightSol: Do you hate the managers of homeworld for scrapping your sequel? Nah. There was so much turnover during that time that the guys who scrapped the sequel were a whole different crew than the ones who took me on board in the first place. And while there were certain internal politics that I could have done without, I really had a blast overall. I’d do it again in a second.
  4. Quinion: What level is your girlfirend in wow Last I checked, she was high-forties. Must be over fifty by now.
  5. [Xfire] Artaxs: Yeah, and what race / class does she play? Blood elf. Paladin. She tanks a lot.
  6. AnThRaX: i like the wow questions
  7. █▓▒ ShoTDeaD ▒▓█: yeah artaxs
  8. Cynosure EPR: and whats her name In-game, Khevvren, or Kevlar, or something.
  9. Cynosure EPR: lol
  10. Quinion: and number I don’t know any more. I suspect she had it changed when the restraining order came down.
  11. MÖטζєя: Do you support the horde or the alliance Horde.
  12. Quinion: I wish my gf played wow tho. No you don’t. Believe me. You really don’t.
  13. Hirmetrium: When its crunch time – Sex or writing? Depends on whether it’s with someone or — nah, who am I kidding. It’s sex. It’s always sex.

  1. For The Horde!

    Yup, another WoW-addict here. Goddammit, it’s not called World of Warcrack for nothing…


  2. My gf plays wow, then again, so do I, it’s shamefull, I know. I suppose I should be outside enjoying the rain, but wait, WoW has weather effects !

    Just don’t tell my mother.

  3. It’s like when the Murder, She Wrote Angela Landsbury character guest-starred on Magnum P.I.

    I did not know of this episode. Please tell me that Angela Landbury wears a Hawaiian shirt and rolls under a flashy late-70s sports car while firing a large, chrome revolver at a criminal bad-guy played by Rutger Hauer.

  4. Except something good will come of this dialog. World of Warcraft has 9 million subscribers, of which, I wouldn’t be surprised if 80%+ enjoy SF novels. Strike a chord of acceptance with the players, always good.

    An essay on competitive RNA based life.. please tell me you get payed to be this interesting.


  5. I have indeed experienced Starfish although I can’t remember the details anymore, so you have me there.

    There was a time I tried to keep up with all the works and rants from Mr. Watts but it’s not only too much, iit’s often over my head.


  6. Scott C. said…
    Is murkulescent a word? It totally should be.

    I totally agree.
    What a lovely word.
    Murkulescent, murkulescent, murkulescent…Just taste it.

    And no, I wasn’t being sarcastic…


  7. Just a heads up: you’ve been recommended Bioshock here, but Bioshock apparently comes with a most insidious root-kit and other DRM. I’d recommend the pirated version, when it comes out. Standard time between release and first playable crack is 1-2 weeks, so it should be soon.

    Not nearly enough.

    And Scott started everything rolling with
