One trick that helps you with this is to stay the hell out of your own head when talking to new people.

    I'm gonna get me a sammach

    in the meantime someone suggest a game idea that would be fun to play on a tablet and is pretty simple

    Bullet hell shmup. In a space ship. Super generic, but fun.

    I wonder how difficult D&D would be on a tablet. That seems like a fun pet project for me to fool around with.

    A kind of mix-up of Sequence and Symphonica. Frantic RPG rhythm game using gestures.

    another incentive for continuing with the new and better life of taking the stairs, because being caught in the elevator with him would have been... worse.

    On the other hand going up eight floors of stairs might ripen you up some depending on your constitution.

    can't do that much, can it?

    and if it's really bad there's a nearby window to open/throw myself out of.

    Forsyth was the same way. Day of the Jackal was an in depth look on how to assassinate world leaders. Dogs of War was meticulously researched, with Forsyth actually posing as a mercenary so he could personally work with arms dealers. By the 90s, he devolved into "rah rah West and Israel, boo Muslims" just like Clancy.

    Yeah. The books start getting less and less technical and more and more political as Ryan becomes more powerful. He stepped down after one term, then there were a couple of books about his son that didn't have much politics (but were still pulp) and now he's president again. Haven't read the latest book yet, but I assume it's more of the same.

    Clancy clearly tries to make Ryan only a moderate conservative, close to center, but Clancy is conservative enough himself that it doesn't mean much.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! This is indeed for programming. I was working on a heavily 4th-ed D&D influenced SRPG but that ended up being too complicated as I am also trying to get up to speed on C++11. So need something simpler to do first.

    My first comment (allegedly):
    ronya wrote: »
    That's not inflation - inflation is a general increase in prices across-the-board. Which happens a lot in MMO's with bad money management, I'll grant, but not so much in Oblivion.

    The problem with Oblivion (specifically) is that one's ability to earn money increase roughly exponentially* with time invested. As such, prices pretty much have to skyrocket too. As things stand, with some care it's already possible to march into the Market District for the first time with enough moolah to buy Apotheosis, which is insanely overpowered at low levels.

    *okay not actually exponential. Polynomial, degree five or thereabouts. But you get the idea.

    This seems unlikely, so I'm guessing there are just some hidden comments.
