The Rambles of a Brave New Modder

  1. Going to the BAR

    by on 30-07-2009 at 12:19 (The Rambles of a Brave New Modder)
    Since between record breaking temperatures and a plain old faulty computer I won't be checking out any EUIII, I thought I'd try to stumble through the first entry in the Before Action Report.

    You'll select your settings, with gold inflation only so that we may control it and not allow the player to interrupt an otherwise separate system of inflation. Advisers will be normal, while I'm imagining leaders and monarchs being assigned by events. Those are the only notable settings for ...

  2. Getting settled

    Gave the cosigner a great birthday gift, a $-8000 check. And got my netbook and a home away from home. Just need to get classes sorted out, used to the mini-keyboard, and life will be sorted out for two years bar surprise.

  3. Just need the lease in hand...

    ... and I'll have found not just an apartment, but a place I can call home.

    Fairly large living room, easy to divide into computer and tv/dining area
    Kitchen with a range and places for everything I care about.
    Full bathroom
    Bedroom is kinda cramped but certainly large enough for a bed and dresser.

  4. Factions: The Prequel

    Code:
    	Elite; All upper echelon types. 
    	Learned; All Scribes, Clerical, Bureaucrats... Your 'office workers'.
    	Entrepreneurial; All Production and Business related. 
    	Craftsmen or Skilled; Artisans, Sword Makers, Armourers etc.
    	Spiritual; Monks, Priests, Philosophers,

  5. Inside the Whale, Part I

    It seems I should probably lay out this structure concept as soon as possible to supplement the discussion in the comments of the last blog, or else we may need to spend more time understanding each other and thus less for developing theory and practice.

    The first issue to address I believe above all else is the start and end date. Antracer mentioned something akin to 1200 to 1900. A quick browsing of Wikipedia, since I've yet to acquire good literature on the time period in question, ...
