OMGsh!!!!! Colour Of Magic!!

I just got wind that production is underway for a TV adaptation of The Colour of Magic which is one of the best Terry Pratchett books.
I'm a HUGE TP fan and I'm absolutely beside myself that I will most likely not be able to see it because it's being made for the UK and I'm in the USA. I wonder how I can immigrate...
Hopefully it will do so well that it will make it to the USA on DVD.
Incidently Hogfather (released in 2006) went on to break British broadcasting records as the highest rating original satellite commission in UK TV history.
Any of you UK people want to mail the Strumpet a Hogswatch present?

The Gypsy Fortune Teller

What Ultima would be complete without a stop at the Gypsy Fortune Teller? I'm almost finished with the first area of the Gypsy camp and have the fortune teller conversation complete with virtue question finished. I'll be releasing this soon with the content packs.

My Appologies...I had a Crysis

Well, between wanting to actually play through NWN2 & MotB and then finding the Crysis demo, I haven't made an update in a few weeks. That doesn't mean there hasn't been work done...'cuz there has.

I've pretty much finished the custom content packs that I'll be using as well as made some headway on a RoU module that I'll be announcing officially after the Ultima 7:Serpent Isle remake gets out the door. I've jumped on that bandwagon now and will be helping out where I can to get that module finished so they can help me. I've also done a little work with the custom spell system and the Spell Point system that is on the Vault.

If you haven't played Crysis and are a FPS fan even a little, you are missing out. Easily the best shooter I've played since the Half Life series. Once it hits the shelves, most shooter fans will be saying "What's Halo?"

I've also been playing through the NWN2 OC on my way to MotB and I have to say that I'm not really all that impressed with the story or the writing so far. The transition between chapter 1 & 2 was really choppy and seemed unfinished. Hopefully the rest will make up for it. I'll write a review when I'm done with the series.
