Other Games / Re: Pokemon! (I am totally serious)

I got myself a copy of White, but with very little time to play it, I've not got very far - only up to Nimbasa city (electric gym, 4th badge).

Trying to test myself by only going through with bug pokemon. I had to cheat a little at the start since you don't get bugs for a while, plus I needed someone for cut. But should be fine now, since I've heard you don't need to use any of the HMs to finish the game.

Current team is: Scolipede (level 30), Leavanny (level 30), Dwebble (level 26).

Can't say I really rate this generation too highly, I've not seen anything overly special with it. The story seems a little heavy for its intended audience to properly grasp, but I quite like it - nice not to have an evil team who want to destroy the world.

As for the 3DS, I'm not going to bother until the next gen 3DS. The battery life is apparently very low and the 3D can be rather temperamental - you have to look at a very specific angle for it to work properly. Plus, most forms of 3D seem to give me terrible headaches, so I guess I'll stick with my DS Lite for the moment :)

What we've been told in Madina is that D'Hara is likely to hand the region back to further an alliance with Madina for the war with SA.

Seems a shame to me, some of us worked quite hard to make the region rebel and now it's just going to be given straight back to us - given the trend of giving regions back to their former owners, it'll likely go back to the old Duke too :(

How many hours a week would you expect someone to work on it?

I've got some C# experience, but I'm mainly a C++ programmer (with a specialisation in games programming). At the moment I'm limited to only a few hours a week since I'm coming to the end of university and things are a little hectic, but a break from revision and report writing would be lovely for me, especially if it means I can actually work on a game instead of just tech demos for uni.

I've looked at Unity before and read through some of their documentation, but I've never actually programmed for it (I intended to for a competition, but ended up going with C++ instead).

So even though time is limited for me, I'd love to give it a go.

It's a great shame Madina doesn't have more players in it. I find it quite fun playing there, but it gets a little boring when my character faces off against - or is supported by - the same person all the time.

I think having very little sense of nationalism in Madina is what makes it a great realm. Every man/woman is out for themselves, yet at the same time they realise that they need the other Lords/Knights to prop themselves up. I just wish that the Dukes would take a little more self control. The constitution says they can send expeditions to wherever they want (I think, it's been a while since I read it), but none of them do. I could easily see Candiels duchy raiding Barca, then Fatmilak duchy selling it food because the Dukes oppose each other. But something like that won't happen because the Dukes don't throw their weight around enough.

Candiels should secede, and Fatmilak should join it.

Problem there, Fatmilak is the capital :P

Madina might secede and become, umm... Madina?

Oh dear Madina.  :o
Just declared their position against SA and I'm guessing this is their way to sort out character shortages (refugees).

That's just a side effect. We've had a few bad meetings with SA, I guess the Dogess just remembered them :)

I look forward to seeing how SA takes it though, with Madina being so far to the south it's quite hard for them to declare war. We tried with D'Hara and it didn't go too well, they were only a boat ride away from our capital at the time.

News from Madina!

I recently had a General there and was trying my hardest to get one army to help out Fissoa. But elections came around and I'd (purposely) left monsters roaming around Madina just a tiny bit (5 hordes running around is tiny, right?) and lost. The new General seemingly withdrew support for Fissoa in an attempt to clean my mess (I'm not sure if he has any plans to go back, since my character isn't privy to that any more).

Monsters were defeated and internal politics started to flair a little. The player of our Doge had to leave for OOC commitments. Duchess of Candiels took over as ruler. There was widespread support for the former Duke of the region to take over, but it came from a lot of the Dogess' enemies so it was ignored. The old Duke didn't have a mechanics claim, so someone else was put in his place who did have one. Some people are shouting about the constitution and the Book of Claims (a wiki version of claims that Madina uses for RP) being broken, but not much is coming of it.

There's a little talk of declaring war on the northern regions, but the armies aren't up for it. Personally, I think Madina is on its way out as we're running out of players to support all our regions.

As an aside about why my character left lots of hordes running around Madina: There are three armies (one of them has just one person in, so we ignore it). One army was off helping Fissoa, the other tasked with defending Madina. The Marshal of the defending army was the Duchess of Candiels, someone my character doesn't really like. So I was hoping to let Madinan regions fall, blame her for not following orders and have her power significantly challenged. That backfired and there were cries of "the General should deal with the monsters, not the Marshal" and that's when elections happened.

Is there any news on the Zuma? Madina had some contact with them and got on rather well.
