    Even if Vault OS came out you would have to wait for the manual.

    Hit the 100 hours on record milestone this week. Six hundred hours of play or bust!

    A comment about itemization in Grimoire. Most of the time it seems, chests yield average consumables and stocking up on multiple items already in the inventory. But when you do find those unique weapons...

    Show Spoiler

    The sword we got from Ducat is pretty sweet. Gave it to our backstabbing thief. Now when he scores triple damage, he is outputting more melee damage than anyone in the party.

    I have been thinking of it for years but over the holidays finally got around to throwing out threads and replacing all dynamic memory allocation with static heap manager. It now works from ProtoThreads and they are spectacular. You can't tell I dropped threads to answer web requests.

    I am also replacing Lua with a custom BASIC implementation with built-in memory disposal for server side logic.

    I was also able to ditch my windowing library called Sim which doesn't work on IE6. Instead I switched to JQuery UI windows that run in the browser to produce the effect of a full OS Desktop that can be configured and arranged just like windows. I wanted to go to complete vector font library for all icons except coloured images just look so darn good.

    IT's still there, I switched it to private. It's the old version, which works really well but is too complex to compile to really tiny device boards and DOS. I am fixing all this now. DOS will actually be used as the base OS for everything. FreeDOS is free, stable and runs forever without crashing.

    The 'Thals drink menstrual blood for strength and fight gigantic death adders in caves around this time of year to celebrate the lunar cycle. Even sunken chested Sapiens is encouraged to join in the festivities.

    Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy
    So I gather, I didn't miss the release of the manual during my Dominions binge....
    Luckily I have KCD to keep me busy until I can ride the Turtle of Incline again

    Grab the Codex by the pussy Strap Yourselves In
    Where's the GOG version of GHOTWE, you fat fuck?
    I've already pirated your game but I want to use my hard-earned $$$ to honestly pay for my share of DRM-free Incline.

    Get on with it!

    It should be a handpainted classic fantasy picture, similar to the one with the knight. Even the original book background idea was pretty good. The Halloween one didn't fit the mood of the game and even though the current one is okay, I agree that it can certainly be better.

    This scene from The Last Crusade reminds me of a Grimoire-style puzzle:

    Consulting a journal for cryptic clues, making connections with reference to the immediate environment's surroundings, and then USING an implement to break into a new catacomb-like dungeon area.

    I imagine you didn't tell them...BECAUSE..... IT IS NOT IN THE GAME.

    Geez, do you ever shut your stupid pie hole and think for a minute before the diarrhea comes out of your mouth?

    Poor Mordecai. Laying dead in the streets of Crowl after he demanded the first tablet from our party. I guess no one told him Tablet Robbing IS NOT IN THE GAME.

    Hey, faggot, take Cleve's dick out of your ass and realize we are talking about NPCs getting a tablet BEFORE you do.

    Now, you were saying?
