The Cafe of Broken Dreams
« on: January 20, 2007, 05:44:47 AM »
Talk just about anything here, in one concentrated thread. Like how your day is going, what the weather is like, just general talk like you were at a coffee house.


A thought crossed my mind, one of many I will say, that I always had a fascination with drow elves, but never had the impulse to create a "Drizzt" mod. Thankfully not. I have seen so many ideas about a Drizzt mod over the years.

The weather is quite cold today, in the high teens, low twenties.

Evil hidden everywhere
Evil has a chilling stare
Null and void of any care
Is where the answer lies
It does no good to beg or cry
It does no good to question why
It does no good it never dies

Weather here finally turned cold. We've been having an unhealthily mild winter. Had the first snowfall of the year, and it was nothing more than a dusting. What a bummer. Still, it's better than the years where you have to get up an hour early every single morning to shovel your car out again, and you know that some creep is going to take your parking spot the moment you get your car free.

Anyway, I'm miserable with an earache and a sore throat, so it's time to get another cup of mint tea with lemon and loads of honey.

Can I get anybody anything while I'm up?

A beer?

jk


I'd like some hot cocoa.  It's cold here...probably nowhere near as cold as it is where you are, but then again I am just a CA pansy. ;D

Edit: On another note, does everyone like my avatar or should i use a different portrait of Auren?

That avatar is, by far, my favorite Auren portrait.

Oh, and your cocoa is on its way. I'm out of beer.

I've got brandy, though. Want some?

Sure, thank you very much!

Got a new tutorial posted here.  Hope it comes in handy for beginner modders.  Please let me know if I missed anything.

Whaaaat?  Out of beer?  Oh, these are dark days indeed.  Actually, I'm more of a wino myself, but I do enjoy a good cider or Guinness occasionally.  I had a brandy the other night but I decided I don't really care for it... might be good in coffee or cocoa though.

It's very nice.  Was there a model or was it hand-drawn?

A little spiked coffee is the best way to start the day off.

No clue.  Got it off a neverwinter vault site.  Just thought it looked nice and used it for the mod.
