I'm not sure why you assume I haven't joined any Discords, based on what I said. I monitor a few of them, as they're becoming popular for several open source projects that I follow. I understand that…

Yeah, IRC has always been popular with techies, and served its purpose for those core groups of people. Discord is like a more accessible version, which means you get a much larger clique of people…

Yeah, that's a nice deal. I got a similar sort of council grant when I renovated a place, which used to be part of an old convent.

My only concern would be the roof. It costs a bit of coin to replace thatching.

I like either extreme - give me the bright lights and the big city, or misty mountains and deep forests. It's the bit in the middle - small town suburbia - that I'm not so keen on.

I don't agree that open worlds have to allow for the player to be anywhere on the map at any time. If we look at BotW, which I think is a very elegant piece of game design, it gates content by using…

I think, though, that all that branching and interaction would explode exponentially, to the point where it wouldn't be feasible to map it all out in a predetermined way.

Probably my twenties. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness…"

Actually, I think I might have played through Jagged Alliance 2 more than once. I certainly played it a lot. Just loved that gameplay.

Can't think of any, TBH. Quite often I make a few false starts in an RPG, and then start afresh with new builds, but once I've hacked through to the end, I've usually had my fill. It's why I like the…
