Episode 19

Curious. It seems like the longer I procrastinate, the easier it becomes to continue procrastinating. What an amusing little experiment this has been! But now, back to blogging.

Let's see. What have I been up to? Mainly, I've been dealing with car troubles. First my beloved red PT Cruiser (with the flames down the sides) developed electrical and brake problems. I had those fixed (at the dealership, no less!), and two days later the transmission died. I mean, completely. That has turned out to be hideously expensive. But hey, once I'd opened the veins of my credit card, it became easier and easier to say 'yes' to the mechanic. I'm just glad he didn't suggest that I needed him to strap on some JATO engines, because I'd probably have agreed to that, too.

The good news? The dog's medical issues seem to have cleared up. So I have a much happier doggie. Oh, and Lulu Press, the web-based print on demand service that I use to publish my paper RPGs, just put Living Legends and Quicksilver on Amazon.com. If any of you have played (or at least read) these books, I'd really appreciate it if you'd post reviews:

The Nemesis Games crew is still hard at work on the Semi-Secret Mini MMO project. We're *very* close to getting combat to work, which will be a major milestone. Right now we're having trouble getting both sides in a fight to attack each other. We're not sure whether the problem lies in the AI or in the combat code. Anyway, we hope to be at a point where we can launch our web site [nemesisgames.net] and make an official announcement to the press by the end of June, followed very closely by closed alpha testing.

Have a good one!

Books on Amazon, you say? Wish I had some money.

At any rate, I'm excited to see what you're working on and what kind of MMO it'll be, so I hope you get to the point where we'll know.
