That is why I said "as of today with the tech we have" as even something like this may end up workable if you pour enough money into and into developing tech for it.

Also your avatar looks like something I remember seeing at some point, mind telling me where it is from? I just can't remember anything beyond knowing it looks familiar.

So it seems I accidentally put my canteen in my wheelbarrow and didn't notice... and then I got really thirsty... so right before going to sleep I go to take a swig from my canteen and... end up snorting a line of low-grade meth.

On an unrelated note: What was that MMO that had it's servers crashed by the dev. team because the players were about to 'finish' the game?
That sounds like FF11.  I haven't heard that specific story but it's almost exactly like a thing they would do.

I heard that story, how they unplugged it just as they were about to beat an "unbeatable" boss.

I think that happened in Everquest too...

Indeed they did, I think there's a cracked article on it. Something about 'Dick moves', but all those articles are bascially written the same way.

especially when there was not a single challenge in the game that necessitated it.
Quitting?

that multiplayer dwarf fortress server?

There was an incident in EverQuest where some players were about the kill 'The Sleeper' so the GM's despawned it.

The Sleeper was not intended to be killed, waking him triggers a script where he kills EVERYONE, as in, not just the players in the zone that he slept in, he then rampages throughout the game killing old raid bosses, and lots of other players and such; as a once-per-server event.

The problem was the PvP servers had never woken him; however a new guild intended to do so; so all the other top guilds on the PvP server actually worked together to wake the sleeper instead of the upstarts;and proceeded to nearly win by 'zerg'ing him (having enough clerics to just keep rezzing, and rezzing, and rezzing... players as they died) so that he could never have everyone in the zone dead at once to continue the script...

Since the GM's did not know if that would break something, the force-despawned The Sleeper in the middle of the fight; and there was MUCH rage.

Later, the GM's gave everyone who participated some reward, and a chance to properly kill the sleeper once they checked that it wouldn't break the server. The loot on the corpse at the end was a generic "Cloth Cap" like what drops from level 1 mobs.

The commemorate the event, one of the anniversary quests rewards a different "Cloth Cap" (with a special click-effect).

Another reason for Final Fantasy not to be an mmo, then.

Unfortunately it hasn't been updating for a while. The author is running an exalted based forum game (vaguely similar to Homestuck) though.

   I went and looked, its farther along then when I last looked at it. The change in art is a little jarring but nice and not quite as OoTS as it was. I lost the links to a number of webcomics when my laptop died a while back and even if it is on hiatus its nice to find it again.

Personally, I don't like the most recent art style :(

I like the one just after the sorcerer ritual best. Or the style my avvie is in.

The Banner Saga is done with the Kickstartering, ending as around 720%.

Okay, your right, I was just trying to make myself like the new art. Some of the characters do look okay but most, especially the character in you avatar look better in that style. *sigh*

Yeah, poor Secret D:


Also, the yellow-haired guy's (forgot name xD) most recent hairstyle is too puffy for my taste.
