    surreal is a good adjective to describe it

    like, a bunch of 27-28 year old professionals just absolutely going crazy and destroying a benihana

    the entire time my girlfriend and i are just looking at each other like "what the fuck is going on!"

    "shit show" is the preferred term

    The guy doing that posts on SA. I'm not overly confident about the project. He seems really resistant to the idea of terrain playing a part in the battles of an SRPG. So everything will be on a flat grid, with maybe a few impassable squares.

    oh hmm

    it looks like it's going to be lovely
    I was originally pretty excited myself.

    Still, I'd avoid pledging until he explains exactly what "Chapter 1" is.

    Kinda soured on the holiday since I lived in Ireland. We went out to eat and had the most hilariously sexist waiter in history. I shall tell the tale now.

    Kinda depends on what specifically you're referring to with terrain. Like, in the old shining force games the terrain bonus for standing on different types of terrain was pretty unimportant and could mostly be ignored. Moving tactically around impassable terrain and bridges and whatnot was pretty important though.

    An SRPG where terrain doesn't factor is sounds rather boring. Unless the game has some other crazy new mechanics that make it interesting.

    Haha, whilst doing baton drills (read screaming, and waving around a stick) a Public order K9 got loose.

    Decided its duty was to run right up to every trainee and bark at them. The guy next to me was about a split second from running and presumably getting mauled when it got called back.

    we went to four bars

    started at fado at 8 am, hoping to have breakfast and beers but the place was already packed

    so we went to a different place called frank's (a hot dog joint) where I had a waffle and chicken sandwich and coffee!

    then to the tavern, where we were the first customers of the day, and finally the black sheep lodge

    and I passed out at 4pm

    Yeah, but if he's not doing something as simple as 'high ground' or 'it's hard to shoot arrows at people in a forest' then it's kinda.. well.. dumb.

    Also called Berner Sennenhund or Bouvier Bernois, the origin of the (snip)Bernese Mountain Dog(/snip)breed is not well documented, but many believe they are descendent of the molossus war dogs, a mastiff type dogs brought to Switzerland over 2,000 years ago by the Romans legions.

    So, high ground doesn't matter, flanking doesn't matter, no cover bonuses, no enviromental bonuses.

    Wow. Way to turn the SRPG genre on its edge by removing pretty much all its standard conventions.

    The caravan part could be interesting as some kind of meta-game, but they've not said much outside of it being important and a bit like Oregon Trail or whatever that famous dysentery simulator is.
