This is an absolutely incredible talk by Jon Ingold about how to construct a compelling dialog tree: youtube.com/watch?v=_vRfNtvFVR

He takes a scene from Blade Runner, breaks it down into beats, and shows how to adapt it to an interactive context while maintaining the pace and storytelling intention of each beat.

People often wonder why printers are so cantankerous but frankly any device that embeds pigmented runes in the remains of long-dead trees is going to be stricken by an ancient faerie curse from the start

I've set up a new site for The Archiver, a #Myst community fan news magazine I produced with other members of The Cavern Today back in 2007-2008. It covered community news, as well as happenings and goings-on in Myst Online during the GameTap days. Check it out!

It's only parkour if it comes from the Parkour region of France. Otherwise it's just "sparkling wallhax".

"Illium" was another name for the city of Troy

"-ad" is a suffix that can be used to mean "the story of"

Therefore "The Illiad" is properly translated as; drumroll please...

Just for giggles, I loaded the Bevin scene file from Uru into the mockup of the Cavern I've been working on. This is the 1st person view from the balcony, as well as an overhead shot.

Keep in mind, the Cavern is 6 miles by 10 (this is a big scene), and Bevin is twice as far away from the Great Zero point here as it is in Uru. Vertical offset from the GZ and angle are the same.

I like this view a lot better.

Today the Event Horizon Telescope project released its first images and sets of papers in an attempt to directly image a black hole and the material falling into it.

There it is: surrounded by an ultra-hot cloud of gas and dust falling into it lies the event horizon of a black hole several billion times the mass of our Sun. It lies about 53Mly away in M87, and the event horizon is just slightly larger than our solar system.

Hey folks, my friend and amazing VA Illya Leonov/Morgan Freepony needs some help. We almost have the copay raised, but the cost of the surgery will be another thing entirely. If y'all don't mind boosting this even if you can't contribute, it'd be a huge help. Thanks! gofundme.com/surgery-is-magic

So it's been a while since I updated about Widget. She's been doing pretty well lately! She's been more playful than ever, and hasn't had any more wobble attacks or possible seizures. She's very itchy and sneezy lately, but that's about the worst of it. Thanks everyone who's been keeping an eye out for news from her. <3
