605 so far. NSpan you still got it. No matter what boards we are posting on. This is the type of shit I've come to expect from you.

Well, damn. My pilot's either drunk, epileptic, combating some killer wind shear, caught in a tropical cyclone, or is being pursued by the monster from Cloverfield. Very possibly all five.

661's my limit.

Very Happy

Between the ages of 13 and 14, me and my friends used to play this game a lot! My highest score ever on this is just above 3000, but I've seen people get 5000+

Would anyone believe me if I said I got 3090??? Shocked

You'd be suckers if you did, I just don't think I was made for video games. 315 was my top score after failing for pretty much 20 minutes. It was a rare occasion that I even got past the first boulder. The number of times my score was 38 is shocking....

I think the game is defective. After 6 minutes my high score was 43.

456! I'm a champion!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Rolling Eyes

I think Donte and I spent too much time in our youth reading comics when we should have been playing video games....

I still buy the hard copies I'm afraid, can't transfer to the digital variety. I've been reading Azzarello's The Joker recently, as well as re-reading Hard Boiled, Gotham By Gaslight, Bone and Flight. And I want one of those T-shirts.

And once you get past the first wall it gets much easier. It's just getting past the first wall that is the big problem....

I think Donte's right. I used to play this on Albino Black Sheep and I got high scores a lot. On the one here, the best I could get is 170 and it's really hard to handle the copter.

Hey SS do you have any Alan Moore Swamp Thing issues. If so, any good? I would love to read those but no one I know has ever read them.

Infernal: Speak for yourself! I don't have 'em anymore (like most of my misspent youth, it perished in a house fire several years back), but I remember well the Alan Moore storyline where Swampie found out he wasn't human, but more like a Pod Pers- erm, Thing, in some ways analagous to the Great Link (Dominion) of later DS9 fame. I remember crafting, over two or three years, an entire AD&D campaign around the concept of a continent that was ALIVE, and I still have those notebooks and maps today. I can't remember how it all played out, Constantine figured in there somewhere, but it was an excellent arc, one of the better non-X-Men stories of the decade, in my opinion, and honestly one of the strongest "awful voyage of self-discovery" storylines pre-Spawn.

Didn't know that. I always have to remember that you and Keyser are a few years older than me and I am a few older than SS. We have to bow to your advanced age errr wisdom.

spoiler alert. The following paragraph is a Donte Spoiler. It shows the true depths of geekness that I am capable of. Read on at your own risk. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items or injuries sustained from uncontainable laughter.



P.S. I would love to have played in that campaign. Sounds fun. You need to scan the maps and let me see the notebooks. Our largest, longest campaign was built around the Book of Swords novel series by Fred Saberhagen. We remade the weapons into other types besides swords (Shieldbreaker was a war maul, Farslayer was a crossbow, Coinspinner was a dagger, etc) and it was a cross dimensional, plane jumping fate of the universe type quest.
Interestingly enough I was a planar guardian of the Prime Material Plane that I fashioned half on Swamp Thing and half on Lukion from the Prison Without Walls episode of the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. Specifically I was a Maelephant Druid who was seeking the weapons to keep them out of the hands of the Demon Army led by a renegade Greater Tanari Lord. I later kicked his ass with the help of the Gargoyle King. Pussy.

Hahahahahah Man that was some geeky reminiscence right there... This was why I went to class my junior and senior year without sleep once or twice a month. afro

Smart-ass. [Grin]

I would love to have played in that campaign. Sounds fun.
The 'Erden Campaign' (Erden is from the German for, "earth") went from 1985-1999. Eventually I DM'ed campaigns on four (of five) continents and a three-year subterranean "side" campaign. I took it to Origins in '87 and '88, and submitted copies of everything to WotC in 2002 when they were soliciting new campaign worlds. I made it to the quarterfinals, I think that was the top 84 or so entries, and eventually they chose Eberron. (Which I thought was terrific.)

You need to scan the maps and let me see the notebooks.
I can certainly do that, though nothing can be posted online or published... It all belongs to WotC now, the bastards.

Every couple of years I think about starting up a new campaign, or more accurately resurrecting and refining the Erden campaign, but I think I'll wait until my daughter is out of the house, or at least in high school. I've been putting together, here and there, notes for an epic multiyear campaign adventure called The Nonacle, but nothing's quite gel'ed yet. If there were some way to do it remotely (via Webcam, perhaps?), I'd jump on that in a heartbeat, and gladly invite you and Shrykey and many others around here to participate. (Light bulbs, anyone?) Be warned, though: I am with regards to D&D, as in most things, a traditionalist. I despise Prestige Classes and insist on PCs starting out at 0th level... I am a ruthless tyrant as DM. However, I'm also damned good, if I do say so myself.

Our largest, longest campaign was built around the Book of Swords ...series by Fred Saberhagen.
An outstanding choice. Erm... Mine drew influence, initially, from the Anne McCaffrey Pern and Chronicles of Thomas Covenant (by Stephen R. Donaldson) novels, as well as the late Roger Zelazny's Amber books, and of course the still-superb DragonLance Chronicles by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman... but probably most from Katharine Kerr's Nevyn / Deverry titles, and, most particularly, David (and, later, Leigh) Eddings' The Belgariad. Though if I had to compare the "style" of Erden to any one particular series, it would probably come closest to two sagas I read much, much later, Tad Williams' Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn and Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth. My campaigns tend to be very gritty, the worlds "used" and dynamic, and death tolls tend to be pretty high among players and NPCs. I am also fond of finding utility in magical items, have my own "spell points" system for both mages and clerics, and encourage players to flesh out detailed, creative, but BELIEVABLE player histories emphasizing noncombat skills, abilities, and knowledge.

We remade the weapons into other types besides swords (Shieldbreaker was a war maul, Farslayer was a crossbow, Coinspinner was a dagger, etc) and it was a cross dimensional, plane jumping fate of the universe type quest.
Neat. I tried Spelljammer for a bit, but abhor Planes and Psionics.

Interestingly enough I was a planar guardian of the Prime Material Plane that I fashioned half on Swamp Thing and half on Lukion from the Prison Without Walls episode of the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. Specifically I was a Maelephant Druid who was seekign the weapons to keep them out of the hands of the Demon Army led by a renegade Greater Tanari Lord. I later kicked his ass with the help of the Gargoyle King. Pussy.
Well, okay, see, that's nothing that would ever happen in one of my campaigns. If you made it to 5th Level without dying and having to "promote" an NPC, that would be fairly notable, and if you made it above 10th Level, I'd probably put that character into semi-retirement, elevate him or her to an emeritus NPC role, and encourage you to draw up a new PC. Once a PC gets above seventy or so Hit Points and starts collecting Vorpal Weapons, or has all his / her scores above 20, or wallpapers his castle walls with portable holes to make his own do-it-yourself TARDIS, I get kinda brittle as a DM, and am likely to crack open an entire continent with an earthquake or a rapidly de-orbiting moon just to kill your pampered ass, then force you to start life again as a six-year-old half-orc sex slave with a cleft palate and no hands. Put another way: In MY campaigns NO player ever owns a Ring of DM Control.

Hahahahahah Man that was some geeky reminiscence right there...
[Grin] No kidding.
