I like this game and all of the players are great but one thing still interferes with my enjoyment, no Alaric. Especially  when I am reading about his children  and grandchildren. Just seems that if anyone  deserved  a chance to see his grandchildren and be a part of their lives, it was Alaric and I wish he were still with them

DerynifanK, I can not disagree with you. It hurts not to have Alaric in the game. It is an unfortunate fact of life that not all things are bliss. What matters is that you do the best with what you have. Even in this game, we are all doing our best with what we are given... and with what we Roll. I  hope it is still worth while in the time it takes to read.

I agree that Alaric deserved that but then so did Jared, and Bronwen and Kevin deserved the happiness they had waited for.  And I wonder if Alaric had had the choice would he not have chosen to die in defence of his beloved king?
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

There are quite a lot of canon characters who deserved better than they got.  In roughly but not perfectly chronological order, Cathan, Queen Megan, Rhys, Dom Emrys and a whole lot of unnamed Gabrilites, King Alroy, King Javan, Davin, King Rhys Michael, Queen Michaela, Simonn, Ahern, Marie, Zoe, Alyce, Se, Brion, Bronwyn and Kevin, Jorian, Denis Arilan, Maryse, Sidana (Caitrin's daughter, not the one in the game). . .
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Thank you. In my case at least it's more a case of being harassed by my charactet. Good fun though.

Have to agree with Darcy. This is scary, hope they make it ok.

I really hope they make it too!.

I can't tell you how glad I am to see Droghera behind us. Back in post 141 we entered the gates. That was on January 9. It has taken them six days and  us six weeks to move closer to Rhemuth. I am with Darcy on the watch for upcoming traps, pitfalls and delays.

The difference between this and novel writing, is that in Novel writing the author controls(at least up to a point) what comes ahead, this game is completely instantaneous and non of us really know what comes next.

Scary? Agreed!

LOL agreed!
Character nagging seems to be an epidemic. Don't take this the wrong way. I have found that writing epiphanies seem most insistant after a hot shower

Given the weather in revanne's part of the world right now, I imagine she wouldn't turn up her nose at the prospect of a nice warm shower or bath!

By the middle of next week it is forecast to be 32F daytime and 21 nighttime with snow showers. What happened to Spring?

Laurna that is a beautiful picture -typical of British uplands. How did you include it in your post?

I love the picture, Laurna.  Nice way to set the scene for the road ahead.

Laurna that is a beautiful picture -typical of British uplands. How did you include it in your post?

You can link to nearly any photo found online using the icon above that looks like a framed picture.  (On my screen, it's the one under the B icon.)  The coding for it will look like this, except with regular BBCode square brackets where I'm using pointed ones.

<img>http://InternetPhotoHere.jpg</img>

You can either copy/paste the link to the online photo here and then highlight it and click the picture icon above, or you can click the picture icon and then copy/paste the link between the two bracket sets.  Just make sure you get it between the two bracketed codes, not inside them:

<img>Like this</img>

<img Not Like this></img>

<img><Not like this either /img>

Also, make sure it is the photo itself you are linking to rather than just the webpage it is on.  The URL should end with .jpg, .gif, or some other ending that indicates it is a photo file.  One way you can be sure you are linking just to the image and not the page it is on is to right click on the photo and select "View Image" from the menu that appears.  (It might say something slightly different in your browser; I am using Firefox right now.) Then when that photo appears on a page by itself, you can copy the URL in the webpage address and paste it into your post.  Depending on where you found your image, it might be set up to prevent it from being copy/pasted, in which case you might just need to find some other image or upload your own.

There is a way that you can upload your own photo as an attachment also, but the problem I've found with that method is that some people can see it and some people can't.  (I can always see attachments on another forum I'm on, but there have been times when I could tell there was an attachment to a post here but I couldn't see it.)  To use that feature, click on "Attachments and other options" below the edit window, and where it says "Attach:" you click on "Browse" and find the photo file on your computer to attach to your post.  A thumbnail is supposed to appear in the post (once it's posted) that others can click on to view the full sized photo, but as I said, this hasn't always worked for me in the past.  However, if you want to link to a photo that is on your personal hard drive rather than online, and you don't want to have to upload it to Flickr first or some other photo hosting website, then that's the way to go about doing that.

When posting a photo from Flickr (at least if it's your own, since I'm not certain if Flickr will let you post other members' photos), there is a special process for doing that, which I would be glad to share if anyone here wants to do so and needs a tutorial, since Flickr doesn't make it as simple as just copy/pasting the image link.

The picture was in the Ghosts of the Past thread.  Laurna had posted a photo along with her latest scene.  The question had come up (here in the Out of Character thread) about how one goes about posting a photo in one's post, so I was explaining how that works.  I did not link to an actual photo link in the example I posted, since if I'd done so, all readers would see was the photo and not the explanation for how it works.

Or are you saying you are unable to see the photo of Gwynedd's grasslands in Laurna's last game scene?  If that's the case, that's a new problem entirely and one we need to look into.
