Re: GPLP: Cursed Crusade

You might also consider for your own research checking out some if the lesser discussed crusades. The lead-up to the fall of Constantinople is a fascinating history. You'll have to forgive me I forget the emperor's name at the moment- Constantinople xi 's father- goes on tour around Europe begging f...

Answering from my phone. Fish: didn't see your whole post as a personal attack at all, but i do take personally the assumption that the whole point' of me was to do anything. That is just a bit crass. As to your ire at my assumption that what you know of the crusades comes from your school or person...

Re: GPLP: Cursed Crusade

well, i was entertained by your suffering. however, I dad rather object to the moralising of the last episode, mostly from Kathleen, and the more general assumption that the crusaders were just terrible, bloodthirsty and materialistic people. Bar a few of the crusade leaders, none of the crusaders ...

Wind Up Velociraptor - The Prince George Chainsaw Massacre

New post on windup velociraptor, about my first house when I was at school with Kathleen, and my roommate who slaughtered a deer in the kitchen with a chainsaw.

Re: Star Wars vs Prometheus. (This whole thread - SPOILERS)

Laser swords, telekinesis and starfighter battles. Hands down. What I'm saying in philo-talk (which is not philosophical talk, it is talk covered in delicious thin-crust pastry) is that Star Wars spent the time to establish a mythology by *showing* it to the audience rather than in a giant expositio...

It is an absurdly long game. As I recall, we finished Zara before we called it a day. Still had all of the Constantinople run up and invasion to go. I would love for LRR to come to Europe again - the last time was when I was actually in BC for a visit, and I know K&G enjoyed their time. But as f...

On a somewhat related note, I have a question about armour for Brad, in case he happens to browse this thread. In a museum I went to recently, there were a few suits of armour that had a hinged metal bit sticking out from the right side of the breastplate. Any idea what this is for? I could probabl...

Don't know if I mentioned it in the LP, but an objective marker would be really, really easy to integrate in those towns. Almost all medieval towns have one or more churches in them whose towers rise well above the other buildings - lots of them have "Lantern Towers" so they are visible at...

Gaming and History

For anyone who is interested, I had an article at Finalbossfight.co.uk last sunday on the Dante's inferno LP and my take on gaming and history.

EDIT: Not .com. .co.uk. Britain likes having its own special internet.
