Wait for Next Version, Use current (.40.24,) or use older release (.34.11?)

Wait for the next release. I want usable mugs damn it!

We can use the current one. I like the big trees and slightly smarter dorfs.

(Yay, I'm on two days in a row)
The danger room thing sounds hilarious. Did anyone else read this in Cave Johnson's voice?
"For our next test, we will be simulating a close-range enemy encounter with an unknown neurotoxin being flushed into the room through the air vents. I'm not quite sure what the unknown neurotoxin does, but it probably isn't universally-fatal. We'll be finding out how deadly it is shortly, in any case. Happy training!"

Also, way to go, PBT.   I didn't expect you to have your turn finished so quickly - that's awesome. Kind of puts a bit of a bind on the canon, though - good luck to everyone attempting to explain where the year went. :P (I had to edit the following chapter/part/journal entry because of it.)

WHY ARE ALL YOU GUYS SUCH GOOD WRITERS? You could turn Spearbreakers into a good movie with the amount of information you guys have been throwing off.

You see, here's how I think this works:
Overseer: Welcome to the military! You need to wear socks! Dorf: Oh, I should get military socks. My socks are civilian socks. Dorf discards socks Dorf: You know, I need a whole lot of gear now. I should get socks... last. Oh, but these steel boots with the white goo on them are nice!

There is absolutely no way in this world I'd make a good director.

And Spearbreakers practically begs to have stories written about it. Think about it - you've got tons of "bad guys" who aren't really bad guys at all, but are simply on their own side - Parasol, Joseph, Ballpoint, the necromancers, and if you want you can simply write from a different viewpoint and make the good guys into bad guys. You've got a huge history, you've got constant battles just to protect caravans passing through, you've got a sci-fi war going on at the same time, you have no shortage of "good guys", and even the middling characters have enough meat on them to pass as protagonists if you wanted. You've got plenty of space for romance (generally of the epic failing variety, leading to awesome drama), and more than enough room for betrayal - everyone in Spearbreakers is basically on their own side, as it's so hard to survive that if you focus on anyone else you wind up zombie food (figuratively speaking). And when someone nears becoming zombie food, it's a perfect opportunity for a hero to emerge and save the day (or a villain to emerge and ensure their downfall). It's a writer's paradise.

Spearbreakers has good writers possibly because it attracts them. A story about a happy aboveground fort with unicorns and rainbows and no problems to speak of begs for nothing to be written about it... and Spearbreakers is the absolute opposite. Nobody in the fortress is happy. ...except perhaps Draignean.

Actually, !Story Spearbreakers! is probably really close to a civil war.

Yeah, we had a couple feet-draggers. That's taken care of, though.

finally home from work. And Talvieno, you summed it up perfectly, though you forgot the part where, as Hans said, everyone in this shithole is heavily boozed up and medicated just to deal with the background noise, let alone the hell they've gone through.

I never thought I'd care about anything TVTropes-related ever again, but the community games page features a link to this thread, along with a pothole to Main/Spearbreakers.

Main/Spearbreakers is currently blank.

Rectify this error. Now.
