Battlegame Today

I couldn't sleep last night, so I'm gonna try to run a battlegame for early-birds today at like 1. Be there and be awesome.

Hooray for Beta Testing!

The Harvest War Promotional Computer Game completely secret project I'm working on is well underway in the development process, and I'm down to the final stretch in terms of doing work. Over the next few days I'll be having Marcil do lots of beta testing... and then hopefully I will have a finalized product available in a week or two.

Progress List:
Engine ~ 95% done
Graphics~ 90% done
Sound/Music~ 70% done
Story~ 100% done
Levels ~ 3% done

Custom Weapons Available for Purchase

I'm opening up for custom weapon orders from the public. Send me a design of how you want a weapon to look, and I can make it for you, with as much detail as necessary. Swords are the easiest to make, but really any flat-bladed weapon(even throwing weapons) can be done using this method. Those of you who have seen my new(and unfinished) Master Sword(not the old gold one) or my Hylian Shield will know vaguely what the result looks like.

Some things that can be done(not all-inclusive; if you have an idea that is not here, let me know):
*The Hamon on a katana or other similar weapon(that wavy line that comes from the difference in hardness from the blade and back of the weapon metals)
*Runes or engravings into the blade of a sword or other weapon
*Weapons or shields that display multiple colors or some form of heraldry, such as a symbol or pattern.
*Gems, protrusions, or any sort of ornaments set into the weapon in for the sake of decoration.

Making Stuff

"The first five (5) people to respond to this post will get something made by me. It will be about or tailored to those five who respond first.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
⇒ I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
⇒ What I create will be just for you.
⇒ It'll be done this year.
⇒ You have no clue what it's going to be (but feel free to use your imagination)!
⇒ I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you respond to this post!"

So... sign up and stuff...

BLAHHH Holidays

I'm going to be out of town for many days and will probably not be in town next week for the park.

If you need to contact me, tell me here, because google is blocked at my grandparents' house and I can't view my email.

Park Report 6-28-08

We had approximately 20 people out today in all.

Everybody showed up a little after 1:00 PM, for the most part, and we started off with some jugging, as per F'lar's suggestion on the PV list. We haven't had jugging at the park in years. Since most of the people who played never jugged before, it was fairly unbalanced, but we still had fun for the most part. We got 5 rounds of jugging off before everybody got tired of losing so badly.

We had an althing in which people voted for whether or not we were going to pay for our P.O. Box. The vote passed the althing. Additional topics of discussion included Harvest War and GM elections. There is also some hideous rumor of people being able to assault me freely with baked goods, to which I raised serious objection and confusion.

Projects for the Next 2 Weeks

I have a number of projects that I am currently working on(about to start), mostly since the Cub Scouts broke all of my non-loaner equipment and I don't want to be using a PVC sword(all the time, at least). Pictures will show up if I can magically get an adapter so that I can plug my digital camera in(it uses a 9-pin serial cable, and I have no 9-pin serial port on any of my machines). Here is a tentative list of projects:

1) Swords. All my weapons are currently broken and need to be rebuilt or repaired somehow. My sword tech doesn't last more than around 5 or 6 months typically, but I may still include pictures for later reference. Additionally, I would like to maybe build a few flatblades so I have something prettyful for court use.

Frustration

You know, it's just been one of those days, I guess. I suddenly have a lot of frustration and nothing to do with it. It's worse because I suddenly find myself unable to feel legitimate anger, and I feel as though I may have changed drastically from what I consider(ed) myself to be. Every different part of life has its own set of dead-ends, and I'm pretty fed-up with it all, frankly. I would feel so relieved if I had some way to let out some of my frustration.

The Gist of Things: Life sucks, I hate it all, and I want a very large hammer.
