A 15 year old reacts to new Gloranthan website

So the MD guys have moved website (and forum) back to glorantha.com. Various folk have squarked on yahoogroups. Its very very tedious.Β  Why can’t you all react to this like 15 year olds? Like when Counter Strike 1.4 moved to Counter Strike 1.5 back in the late 90s. It would be much more fun πŸ™‚

You could all get on get on IRC, I’d imagine it would go something like this:

>Welcome to Gloranthan IRC channel!! πŸ™‚
>Please note DEVs do hang about here on their lunchtime (or any other time when they are mildly distracted πŸ™‚ ). OFFICIAL_GLORANTHA is one of the DEVs and VOICE OF GOD on this channel πŸ˜€
>Please note MOD@Glorantha is not a DEV. Due to previous trolling, this Anonymous user has taken it upon his/her self to play MOD.
>Please play nice and enjoy your stay!
>Users in Channel, [StormTribe] IAMORLANTH, [UZ] MsKygorLItor
>[StormTribe] HumkatBoy_1 has just joined Gloranthan IRC.
>[StormTribe] HumkatBoy_1: OMG thy have changed the website!!!
>[StormTribe] IAMORLANTH: WTF??
>[StormTribe] HumkatBoy_1: They have changed the forumz,
>OFFICIAL_GLORANTHA changes status from Hidden to Visible.
>OFFICIAL_GLORANTHA: Hi there we upgraded to Glorantha v2.0, sorry about the short notice, but it really rocks now. Have funz!
>[UZ]MsKygor_Litor: Short notice, how about no notice asshat! πŸ™
>[StormTribe] HumkatBoy_2 has just joined Gloranthan IRC
>[StormTribe] IAMORLANTH: WTF! One moment I am playing Glorantha v1.6 and now we’ve upgraded to v20?
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_2: No v2.0
>[StormTribe] IAMORLANTH: v2.0 wat evar.
>[UZ] MsKygor_Litor: yeah and they fuked it up. Its crap now!
>OFFICIAL_GLORANTHA: Hi please take the time to check out Glorantha v2.0, all us devs have been working hard on it to make it the best Glorantha evar!
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_1: No its shit. (waves at HumaktBoy_2)
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_2: I stopped playing Glorantha after v1.2, too many Newbies. (waves at HumaktBoy_1)
>OFFICIAL_GLORANTHA: Isn’t that a good thing more people to play with?
>[UZ] MsKygor_Litor: No suckface, we knew how to play it and didn’t want any new players. And if the newbies they could just suck it up and play v1.2.
>[StormTribe] IAMORLANTH: yeah I rule at v1.2. v1.3 i’m not as good at because you made it crap.
>OFFICIAL_GLORANTHA: Wasn’t v1.3 where we added a ton of stuff about areas other than Dragon Pass and Prax/Pavis?
>[StormTribe] IAMORLANTH: Yeah….but I’m not interested in other areas. I don’t RULE there πŸ˜‰
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_1: Nice one bro πŸ™‚
>[UZ] MsKygor_Litor: Stop changing the game DEVS!
>OFFICIAL_GLORANTHA: But we had to improve it, make fixes, heck Glorantha 1.2 wouldn’t even run on today’s computers.
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_2: Don’t care 1.8 was better.
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_1: Listen to HumaktBoy_2 he is right! Except 1.6 was the best πŸ˜›
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_2: No I do, my Sword is bigger than yours πŸ˜›
>[StormTribe] IAMORLANTH: That’s it Humakt_1 you are officially out of [StormTribe]!!
>[StormTribe] HumaktBoy_1: Hey bro chill, that was Humakt_2.

>MOD@Glorathana: MsKygor_LitorΒ  Stop Trolling!
>[UZ] MsKygor_litor: MOD but I can’t help it.
>MOD@Glorathana: MsKygor_Litor we’ve had this argument before. Using the fact that your user name is actually a ‘Troll’ Goddess allows you behave badly here.
>[UZ] MsKygor_litor: wtf! You are a retard MOD, FUK the DEVS! Fuk U πŸ˜›
>[UZ] MsKygor_Litor has been kicked from Gloranthan IRC by MOD@Glorantha

I have a new spirit ally – ALL HAIL BRAX THE BROO!!!

Brought into life by Steve fromΒ Mad Knight Castings

(check out their Gloranthan miniatures line – my jaw dropped when I saw them at Continuum).

Happy Birthday Mr Meints

This fine day I’m taking a moment to send positive birthday vibes in the direction of Rick Meints, the quiet half of Moon Designs who is responsible for the Gloranthan Classics ( a major achievement – updating the layout adding new art,Β  adding related content – basically rescuing these classics from the preserve of overpriced Ebay collectors) and the crisp clear layout of Moon Designs HeroQuest books, amoungst many other things.

So happy birthday Rick ! πŸ™‚
