    It certainly matters -- not only for the gluten-intolerant folks (:D) but also from a descriptive point of view.

    While the ultimate decision lies with each individual GM of course, I would also be interested in the official version. ;)

  • Contours?   11 years 7 weeks ago

    Gotcha, that makes sense Robin. I was curious about visualizing geography in 3D, a la Nasa's Worldwind or Terragen, but I'm so far from giving that a try that I'll likely just inquire again personally should I get to a place where I can make an attempt at this sort of thing.

    Cheers, and Happy New Year!

    I think that an audio guide would be handy!

    ...there was a Penny Arcane article in Hârnlore 15. I still use it today as a handout to new players - it helps them a lot.

    But an audio guide would be really cool. I own some foreign language dictionaries for my handheld computer that offer the feature to speak the actual word out of an additional audio file and that is sometime really helpful.

    That would correspond to a small electronic Hârndex with a working "speak me" button.

    Ok then... I started to do this a few years ago, but lost interest...

    If there are people who what an audio pronunciation guide, let us know.

    Also, if there are words you'd like to hear pronnounced let us know what they are.

    We aim to please...

    That is a fantastic idea.

    ...a file in MP3 (or other) format of Robin pronouncing the (random number) 1000 most common Harnic names/words? If it was downloadable it would instantly(?) solve many problems.

    Conundrum: When is the Past also the Future?

    Some maps will have contours and some will not. Some will have benchmarks (or spot heights). It's all about the context and what provides the best (or cleanest) information yield.

  • Accents & Pronunciation   11 years 8 weeks ago

    I love the accents, but I understand the points here (i.e. confusing and/or pretentious seeming to some). I think the pretension accusation is unfortunate, and I suspect that may come from some experience with (other company's) products that have actually abused them (or other affectations such as the AE in Forgotten Realms, et. al.).

    Personally, I don't want to lose the accents, I like them. For me, an option to display or not display the accents would be far preferable to having no accents displayed in the texts. Frankly, it's too easy to pronounce the names incorrectly without them. But a pronunciation guide, and vowel key, would be very handy I suspect.

    Very sorry to hear about the onc revisitation. :-/
    Hopefully this time, after yet another round of chemistry, they'll get the idea that they aren't truly welcomed.

    Granted, having them over for tea, or a game session, every now and then might not be so bad (old friends, after all), but like most people, they tend to outstay their welcome.

    Although I've been using up most of my good thoughts lately (my re-spawn rate for positive thoughts has somehow been set to < LOW > (not quite sure how that happened)), I'll be sure to send what I have left your way. I'm pretty sure that I left a few under the couch as well (for rainy days)... if the cats have left any, I'll pop those over to you as well.

    My wishes for your good health (now and in the future)...

    "You could immdiately reply to your new topic with an answer that has the same title as the intial topic...then it would come up as a recent comment!!!"

    That doesn't work if you want to know what other people have posted.

  • "New topics" and "Recent comments"   11 years 10 weeks ago

    The software we are using for kelestia.com treats the initial forum posts (the "topics") as website items (much like blog entries, polls or individual downloads) and the replies to them as comments.

    In other words: The first post of a forum thread (the "topic") is not considered a comment.

    We *could* maybe set up a "Recent forum posts" sidebar that lists both the topics and the comments as equal elements.

    Personally, I quite like the way it's handled now -- after getting used to it a little.
