Just look at his little face! :wub:

That is just awesome! Did you break out a play of Ray Parker Jr... or maybe even Bobby Brown?


Are you asking if he blacked up?

I just started Torment:Tides of Numenera and managed to kill my character at the start before you even finish the character creation :lol: .

I even got an achievement :slol: .

All I know is it was a bloke but now he's a puddle in a crater having fallen from space to his death :toot: .

Not a bad start.

The game starts at the character creation and has you falling in a sequence that I thought was character birth as it talks about being in a dark place that opens up (it sounded like the birthing experience) and you select a gender and it gives you the option to go faster so I said "Yeah lets get this over with" and it turns out you're actually falling from space and I'd decided to speed up and plummet to my doom.
I didn't even get to select my stats or make him look like a freak show before his organs were liquefied on impact.

I enjoyed a spur-of-the-moment day out at Hastings yesterday with a couple of pals. Great weather, a bit of grub and a few laughs.

Worst-ever "I have a friend" post etc.

Ya know, when we were travelling down there I thought that a GRcadian or two lived in Hastings. I think the place is great! It feels like some coastal places have suffered a little in recent years but Hastings seems to have evolved and remains a fine place to visit.

> I love that my beard made me feel like one of the many arty type people chilling near the craft and book shops! :toot: ;)

I really like Hastings and I'm quite envious of folk who live there. I don't drive so I only visit a couple of times a year with friends... and I always enjoy it. Disappointed not to see any GR logos about the place though, obvs.

Glad you liked it :D

Yeah, it is a good place for Hipster bearded types especially around Warrior Square and George Street.

I like the idea of living near the sea (even though I have to really cover up from the sun). Do you find that the place is a wee bit cold in the winter though, Errkal?

Not really, we have central heating now so it's all good.

I grew up here so it is what I'm used to so can't say I really notice it being super cold or anything. Can be bloody windy though, the seafront is "interesting" when it is like that as the waves can splash over the road and stuff.

You should look at moving down pretty much guarantee you will get way more house for your money (you may even get one without wasps)
