What the hell, Bes?

Unread postby Besyanteo » Sat Mar 08, 2008 1:05 am

Right! So, I IMed lots of different people with a fairly strange set of questions! And now that Dreamhost is back up, I will post the results of that!

Image

It's in the style of a galaxy in the game Space Empires 5, because I've been more or less glued to my computer playying it for the past few days. Basically, a little white star marker notes an empty system, and a colored marker is assigned to each empire and the systems they occupy. Everyone gets one system. No conquering eachother. >:!

If you're not on here, it's because you weren't on AIM and on my buddylist while I was making it. I don't hate you. :(

No, I didn't ask (most) people what to do with their names for the little star systems. Mostly because I didn't want people to guess at what I was making.

If you want to be added, post with two numbers between 1 and 7, and a color! I will update when I notice you've posted! How I place you isn't exact, just a general guideline.

I hope people like it!

I, er.

What is this? Is there some significance to the placement and the links? Is this for a game of some sort? I am having difficulty ascribing meaning to this grid.
"You haven't told me what I'm looking for."
"Anything that might be of interest to Slitscan. Which is to say, anything that might be of interest to Slitscan's audience. Which is best visualized as a vicious, lazy, profoundly ignorant, perpetually hungry organism craving the warm god-flesh of the anointed. Personally I like to imagine something the size of a baby hippo, the color of a week-old boiled potato, that lives by itself, in the dark, in a double-wide on the outskirts of Topeka. It's covered with eyes and it sweats constantly. The sweat runs into those eyes and makes them sting. It has no mouth, Laney, no genitals, and can only express its mute extremes of murderous rage and infantile desire by changing the channels on a universal remote. Or by voting in presidential elections."

Well, he says he tried to make it look like Space Empires V.

(Although he means Sword of the Stars)

I've not played this game. But my mind defaulted to Mario Galaxy. Just imagine your own personal stage.

Priam: It has about as much purpose as the RPGWW Family Tree had.

And by that I mean none at all, but some people had fun with it.

Also, I'm going to assume Christian meant 6,6!

So this is what that was all about. Neat!

Also, I like DM's idea.
Anime is kind of like fish in that it is better the less "fishy" it is.

Oh, yes, well, my brother was supposed to have said 6 as well, but ever since that little expedition off to the twin peaks of Kilimanjaro he hasn't really been that talkative... Not that I mind, couldn't get him to shut up before.


Anyway, 6,6 it is yes.

Is it a freak coincidence that this is the score GameSpot gave SE V, or did you think I was smarter than I actually is? Me is very smarty!


Seriously though, are we given some interactional rights with "our" systems, or do you want to handle that? :3 Either way is gurd to me, I just don't log onto AIM that much.

I'm curious why Priamus is being such an anti-social system up in the corner =(
