Ah, alrighty. I'll look there.
Had been to hospital for almost a week, fleeb.
You can use my emailadress here, though.
oh, the_mg, I hope you and your beloved are allright?(again?)
Thanks, I'll send the invite post-haste. In the game, I'm 'A Fleebness'.
It's sent. You should see it shortly.
I've played the game for nearly a week now, I suppose I should describe it.
Glitch is a Flash/web based game that has a series of maps connected by various nodes grouped by regions. I find the artwork endearing... it varies from nice woodsy sort of environments, mountainous regions, and underground areas, to psychedelic areas that seem inspired by Dr. Seuss.
The game has several skills your character (called a 'glitch') may learn.
One set of skills seems to influence your character's 'mood', another influences your character's 'energy', another helps your character learn other skills more easily, another set helps your character move about the world more easily, and so on.
The skills have a kind of deity called a 'giant' associated with them. The favor you gain with these giants influence your ability to learn the higher level forms of the skills you choose to learn. There is a maximum number of skills you may learn, which you can increase with the 'Better Learning' skill to a maximum of 37 skills. You may unlearn skills, though, to pick up other skills if you want.
The crafting skills are kind of integral to the game, unlike some games where it exists, but isn't as important to the game. Almost everything you want in the game can be created by another character or yourself if you improve the associated skill enough to create it.
All combat in the game is co-operative. Although I have the skill to engage in combat against 'rooks', I haven't yet. Just haven't stumbled into a situation where they were attacking an area yet.
The community has a reputation of being very co-operative. To date, I haven't met anyone playing this game who is rude. Most people are very co-operative, and the game encourages this kind of gameplay. If you want PvP, you won't find it in Glitch.
For my own part, I have mostly spent the game exploring the game world. You gain achievements for nearly everything, to include exploration. You can explore people's profile easily enough... here's minee:
(Flaximus is my sister, incidentally... she hasn't played it as much as I h ave, to date).
You can also learn quite a bit about the game through their Encyclopedia:
I have one invite left. Not sure yet to whom I should send it.
I have been the only one in hospital, dothebart. I am a little better now that I sleep at home again. But the doctores didnt diagnoze anything, they seem to be clueless. Calling House, M.D.!!!
Ugh... I hope you get better soon, the_mgt.
hm, though its the wrong time of the year, tick bite infections tend to surpass hospitals (my mom had that some years ago...) so maybe another pointer to have a look at.
get well soon.
The e-mail I sent for you here was bounced 25 hours ago. I do not see a way in the interface for me to correct it to something else.
wow, that channel is still active? Thought it died out for some reason....
Sorry to hear about your hospital stay, the_mgmt. Hope they figure it out soon and get you back on your feet!
Gnaa, second stay in hospital... they know the general direction of the cause, they claim that it wouldn't have happened again, but it did. Twice! And they also have the cojones to give me the same sorry excuses and the "Won't happen again" again. With a "most probably" added this time. We'll see.
They also have no föcking WiFi in hospital!
I registered my nick in the internet-email-aliases file here on my personal vcard and now it seems that i can receive mails there, fleeb. Can you resent the invite, if possible? I am sick at home now, for a week and would be more than happy to toy around in the game.
It still won't let me resend the one. I'll just have to use up my last one.
It wouldn't let me send it here.
You'll need to give me another e-mail address.
Just to continue abusing this thread: I have been to hospital a third time for the same shit :)
Will probably go for a fourth visit to another hospital, since my distrust for the first one is over 9000 now and I need some second opinion. Also, for the protocol: encephalitis totality sucks!
fleeb: The email/invite issue still didn't work out, but I found refuge in Pikmin (New play control) on my wii. :)
Heh, okay sir. Sorry you didn't get in, though.
