These monthly updates working for you?

They're going OK for me, in case you were wondering.

So, on to the big news of the month! Ossian's Mysteries of Westgate was announced to be released shortly. Whatever "soon" means, because it's certainly longer than two weeks from then. Of course, this spawned a series of "Yes it is!" "Do you think I'm an idiot?" responses. Personally, I think both are justified. I don't think anyone wants to see Ossian, or NWN2 as the case may be, fail because of this mismanaged debacle (not that the non-release of an Adventure Pack would spell doom for the game, but it's certainly not helping building confidence in the franchise or it's publisher...), even what little support pretending to be excited at this point people are mustering is, I'm sure, appreciated by the guys on the receiving end of the nonsense. Not to point fingers either. Oh, and don't take that the wrong way Ossian, I resigned to casual awareness a long time ago. Expecting excitement is a bit much, don't you think?

But on the flip side, the definition of something stupid is doing the same thing and expecting different results. This is why nobody likes a skeptic.

In other news, our BouncyRock project Shattered Dreams there's a new update out. Also, some setting information can be found here.
