December 22nd, 2012 06:07 PMGideon Jeremiah... I LOVE the Princess Bride! :D
It's right up there with Pride & Prejudice for me (I swear I'm not even joking .).
What are you currently reading?
December 22nd, 2012 06:05 PMLokiepieHaha thought as much
and ahs I will keep that in mind when I go back to uni and have some free time then still working through various different books however haha
I have to admit though it is not something I seek out but enjoy when I stumble across it
I mean my favourite book is the princess bride, a comedy and quite old but absolute brilliant The original has underlying politics when you analyse it too but it's not the strongest component of the tale but there non the less :D
December 22nd, 2012 05:58 PMGideon JeremiahYes! :D
If you do not already know of it; I recommend you read Issac Asimov's "Foundation".
Now the entire series is split between 7 books, but the original alone is worth reading.
Note: I love Dune .
December 22nd, 2012 05:50 PMLokiepieYeah, love Dune which is riddled in it amazing book!! guessing this is a subject within books that is a particular interest for you then??
December 22nd, 2012 05:44 PMGideon JeremiahHmm... do you like science fiction, or anything involving political intrigue?
December 22nd, 2012 05:32 PMLokiepiehaha I tried when i looked through Lovecraft's short tales but I just cannot settle with it I can barely get by one of the scary parts in my favourite book xD I know a lot of people like them though
December 22nd, 2012 05:29 PMGideon JeremiahOh no, it's alright.
I've made my peace with it.
... please, for the sake of all that is holy (or unholy, whatever floats your boat), read something of his. Like... "The Shadow over Innsmouth" or "The Color out of Space". :D
December 22nd, 2012 05:23 PMLokiepiesorry to hear that.
and wow definitely starting to sound like a very interesting game indeed! XD
and regrettably I can't say that I have read their stuff, though I have heard of them. Just bought Lovecrafts short tales for a friend of mine's christmas present xD
Flicked through the pages when I first picked up the book but couldn't settle and read it
December 22nd, 2012 05:17 PMGideon JeremiahIt's funny, I actually got turned on to it by my sister, before she passed away a few months ago.
Oh it is immensely interesting!
Especially the religious take; they essentially have one religion which is a contrarian's perspective of Buddhism (they have the same journey [Koslun of the Qun & Siddhartha of Buddhism] & arrive at two different points; Siddhartha advocates personal isolation & non-violence in Buddhism, while Koslun advocates submersion & militarism in the Qun).
While the Elven religion is clearly the initial concept that the Human's religion of "The Maker" was stolen from. Similar to Christianity & other denominations having many similarities to much more ancient & well documented religions.
I read a few hours everyday :D .
My favorite writers are still Leo Tolstoy, Issac Asimov & H.P. Lovecraft.
Have you read any of their works?
December 22nd, 2012 05:13 PMLokiepieoh cool, that sounds really interestin! I have never played Dragon Age though watched my brother and bf play but never really tried myself
but like the fact that you are getting to see both sides of the story, is it interesting then?
and well types of books, I read an awful lot but I have a tendency to read a lot of fantasy books such as LotR as well as Sci-fi like star wars and Dune :D love comedy too though, I am an avid reader of Terry Pratchett's books as well as the Skulduggery Pleasant books by Landy makes me giggle to no end xD you??
December 22nd, 2012 05:06 PMGideon JeremiahDragon Age 2 :D .
Since the 3rd game/last game in the trilogy is coming out this fall, I am finishing my first of 2 files on this one.
In this play-through, I imported my save from the previous game, where I was a Elven Mage (more dialogue about the elven culture & the mages wanting freedom from the templars) & am siding with the mages on this DA2 file.
On my other one, I will be play as a human who always acts snide towards mages & side with the templars. Putting humans & non-magic above all else. That way I will see both sides of the story .
Hmm... what types of books do you read/enjoy?
December 22nd, 2012 04:56 PMLokiepiewell forgive me for asking as I am a lil slow at times what is DA2? never come across this before,
and well my conversations just tend to evolve as they go a long can range from anything like cup cakes to why penguins look like they are always wearing suits so easy going really,
anything you wanna focus on??
December 22nd, 2012 04:52 PMGideon JeremiahHaha, well not particularly.
But thank you .
Hmm... well I will give that a shot later this evening.
As it is, I need to practice my mapping skills for the Gen V games (as well as scripting, though that's a bit easier to grasp) & finish my current campaign on DA2 :D .
Anything you'd like to chat about in particular?
December 22nd, 2012 04:50 PMLokiepieyeah true dude but I am sure you pull it off
well why not just give it a fresh start here and try your hand at one of the on going rps?? they're good once you get the hang of it and practice makes perfect after all
December 22nd, 2012 04:46 PMGideon JeremiahEeyup, truth be told; my only gripe is the issue with my hair & still going to school XD
Those all sound fantastic! :O
I have been asked, but never really been able.
I always have that "beginner" issue of accidentally breaking immersion.
