Middleforest

I’ve recently discovered a new project recently by chance.  On the side of Amraphael’s blog, there was a blog listing I had never seen before called Middleforest.  So, I decided to give it a visit to see what it was about.  I was pretty amazed at the attention to detail he put into his cityscape.  It’s probably one of the most realistic cityscapes I’ve seen in NWN2.  So if you haven’t seen it yet, go check it out:  http://middleforest.blogspot.com/

In other news, Zork has been out for awhile now.  I get to be a lazy area designer next week and finally play this module and perhaps a few others I haven’t been able to play yet, like Subtlety of Thay 2, Dark Avenger 2, and a few other modules I have on my list.

Not much to report, however I’ll leave you all with two screenshots from Shattered Dreams (well one is from SD and the other is test design for an area in the module).

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

A few weeks ago I had been rewatching a series that I had previously finished watching while I was in my dorm (and thankfully I won’t be in a dorm ever again).   The title of the series is an anime called Code Geass:  Lelouch of the Rebellion.   It is only two seasons long (50 episodes), most of which is dedicated to furthering the plot.  There are a few episodes that are there for humor as is the case with many animes. 

Some of you might not be huge fans of animes, but this one in particular is probably the best one I’ve seen.  Its pretty much a no nonsense series that’ll keep you engaged for hours on end, perhaps even consuming your entire free time you should’ve been spending working in the toolset.  But, everyone needs a break every now and again, right?  Getting down to the point:  If you have not watched this series, then I recommend Code Geass highly.   If you have kids that are pretty young, then this isn’t the show to watch during the day, although most of the concepts – philosophical and not – would fly right over their head. 

 Code Geass:  Main Characters

So, what is Code Geass about you ask?  The series is set after Japan’s conquest by the Holy Britannian Empire their powerful new weapons, the Knightmare Frames, stripping Japan and its citizens of all rights and freedoms and renaming their country Area 11. The titular Lelouch is a Britannian prince who was disowned by his father, Emperor Charles zi Britannia, after his mother was murdered, and has vowed to destroy his father, the Emperor and Britannia. He gains an ability through the mysterious power of the Geass and becomes the leader of the resistance movement to fulfill his greatest two wishes: to seek revenge for his mother and to construct a world in which his beloved sister, Nunnally, can live happily in.

You can find all 50 episodes on the internet pretty easily.  If you just want to see if the show is to your liking, I’ve embedded a video to this post for your viewing pleasure.  If you want to see more, you can. All you have to do is go on YouTube, search for Code Geass and look for Bandai Entertainment as the author.  They have all episodes for Season 1 posted there.  

Until next time.
