  1. Umm... time for a new progress report, I think. Er... we're not done yet. Yeah, that's about it.
  2. The good news: the mod is closer to completion than it has ever been before! The bad news: due to some bad planning from my side, and the fact that August didn't have six weeks this year either, I haven't quite been able to finish all the writing yet. I have gotten far enough that I don't mind other people looking at it, though, so I'll start posting the texts in the team forum for review and eventual coding some time next week. There will (or should...) not be any more major changes, so I can keep writing the later material while the earlier stuff is being worked on. There will
  3. I've posted something to this effect twice already, but I just realized that if someone's interested in the progress of the mod, this is probably where they'll look first... After I got started again in June, there has been slow but constant progress, but I want to finish all of the writing before I let anyone look at it. This is mainly because I'm a difficult and unsociable person; I'm even a bit reluctant to speak about things I'm currently writing. At the moment, my goal is to finish all of the writing before the end of August, and there will probably not be any new progress reports bef
  4. Progress Report, June 30, 2004. I just wrote "haer" instead of "hear" in a totally unrelated piece of writing. I don't know if this is progress,but I figured I would report it anyway.
  5. Progress report, June 3, 2004 Ladies and gentlemen, we have Progress! I am currently: Blowing the dust off old topics Integrating the quests with the romance Combining old and new ideas into a Unified Field Theory of Everything Plotting and/or Scheming During the forced break, I've also had time to think about a couple of things. In fact, some of the things that I know how to do now would have taken me more than six months to figure out in November. Really.

    Developer Diary

    Don't worry. Sometimes the choice isn't so much about whether you should neglect your duties as about knowing which duties to neglect. And as a semi-proffessional neglecter of duties, I can say that you've got your neglecting pretty well sorted out. Umm... what I was going to say before I got carried away with all the neglecting was "take your time, we'll still be here when you're done".

    Aklon's Bio

    Yes, but 6' 7'' is very tall (around two meters, for those of us who use a more rational system ). That doesn't necessarily have to mean that Aklon can't be that tall, though...
  8. You're probably going to think that I'm not focusing on the essentials here, but: Yay! Rapiers! I can't wait
  9. Note, June 1, 2004: This introduction is in the process of being edited. If something doesn't make sense, please be patient. If something does make sense, please let me know so I can change it... Another note, June 23, 2004: I'm locking this thread to keep the introduction uncluttered. If you have any comments, either post them in this thread, or start a new thread for them. This mod started as a discussion on the Unfinished Business forum, when it turned out that the game designers had planned a romance for Haer'Dalis but then dropped it due to time constraints. As far as possible, w

    Aklon's Portrait

    Definitely an improvement, especially the hair. But he doesn't look 37
  11. Report 4 – December 7, 2003 It seems like I've neglected updating this for a while, but I blame it all on society! Err.... or perhaps not.... then I blame it on the badgers. The devious little creatures, with their dancing and their ... their... no, this isn't working... Things were standing still for a while, but then they started moving. At the moment, they're standing still again, but I hope that's just temporary. We have sort of reached an agreement about Haer'Dalis' past (that means that I've said what I think and then said "no" to everybody else's suggestions ), so I
  12. Third report – October 25, 2003 Well, it seems like we agree on the preliminary plans for the romance, so I'm going to start writing the actual lovetalks now. I've got a busy week ahead of me, though, so it migth take some time before I manage to finish anything. And it's been a while since I last wote poetry, so that might lead to some additional delays. Almost makes me wish the Solaufein mod hadn't already used the easy way out (using real world poetry, that is). Hmm... is "contains only previously unused poetry" a good sales argument? JPS
  13. Second report – October 20, 2003 Ladies and gentlemen, there has been progress! For the last few weeks, I've suffered from a bad case of Real Life, but things have not been standing still. Important issues have been discussed (by Tam, Bibbi, Barren Fischa and myself), files have been coded (by Barren), the same files have been neglected too long (by me, I'm afraid), and my first outline for the romance has been posted (by me, unsurprisingly) to be evaluated and possibly challenged (by... no, this is just getting ridiculous). I've written some dialogue, which has not been pos
  14. First report – September 30, 2003 We've just moved in and started to make ourselves comfortable. Currently Barren Fischa, Bibbi and myself are working on the mod, but there's certainly room for more people (please contact Barren Fischa if you are interested, Dear Reader). At the moment, we are trying to figure out the basics for the romance, deciding what it should generally be about. As of now, there are quite a few things that we have not decided on, but things are looking good. We are gathering information, throwing ideas at each other and generally having a good time (I hop
  15. Alright, I thought I'd start a new thread just to let potential visitors know that we are in fact working hard, even if it doesn't show here in the public forum. I'll add a new post every now and then to let you know how we are faring. I'll try to avoid direct spoilers, but if you see something that you think will spoil some of the fun for you, just let me know and I'll tell you to forget it... JPS
