  1. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Nov 18]

    Those decisions are some of the worst ones for me. I wish I could just post my pdf and be done with it :thumbsup2



    I will definitely do some smoothing after November has ended (smooth some...
  2. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Nov 18]

    The ending to part IV is indeed abrupt, and I should look at that more. But for part V it only looks that way because it leads right into part VI (which involves a switch in perspective, hence the...
  3. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Nov 18]

    What can I say, I've got Chapter 5 all finished, and just this morning concluded an "Interlude" mini-chapter that comes after and marks the mid-way point of the story. Now I'm on to Chapter 6, and...

  5. Re: Written in Sand (Nabataean AAR for EBII)[updated: Nov 11]

    Thanks Alwyn! And as ever, your words are both kind and helpful. In particular, thanks for the comment about "circle of life". I hadn't even thought of that, but I'll consider your point there. I...

    Hey Leander,

    I'm doing it now, but with my own (much lower) goal. However, I'm not even managing that so far, and am probably about 6,000 words short of what I would have wanted to have done by...

    Ah, quotes, they too were one of the first things I really loved in these games. I myself came for the history, and those snippets of thought were just excellent. Some of the mods in particular have...

    I so agree with both of these comments. Ripley is just the most awesome heroine of basically any franchise I can bring to mind. There are a few others who come close, but she is so hardcore,...

    Thanks, and I am glad that the conversation worked well. Your estimation of the two characters is indeed what I was aiming for, to show that Tharin is easily goaded and not necessarily the sharpest...
  19. Re: New Town (Carthage AAR) [updated November 9, 2019]

    Very cool indeed! And it is cool to see that you can levy troops from a vassal state. Is this something that you can do specifically because Rome is allied with you, or are you making use of some AoR...
