Looks pretty good for a little Lovecraft based board game. I'd love to see someone do a new fully realized 3D game like Call of Cthulu but much better.

Cutter vs. Reality, Chapter 766348: How To Not Know When You Have Lost

CvRC766348HTNKWYHL

Should be in every dictionary, because abbreviations only exist when they're in a dictionary. (From: The World According To Cutter, p. 6346)

Not at all. Language has rules for very specific reasons. None of it would work if it was a free for all where anything goes.

word:

noun

1. a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation, that functions as a principal carrier of meaning. Words are composed of one or more morphemes and are either the smallest units susceptible of independent use or consist of two or three such units combined under certain linking conditions, as with the loss of primary accent that distinguishes black·bird· from black· bird·. Words are usually separated by spaces in writing, and are distinguished phonologically, as by accent, in many languages.

As I said, for it to be considered a word it must convey meaning by definition. It can be express or implied but it's not just made up nonsense. Ergo, an acronym can only be predicated on actual words that actually exist.

How would you know bird is the word if bird had no meaning? Or how would you know if grease is the word without knowing what grease is?

Cutter, have you checked out the mod we made called Eye of the Beholder?

if not you should check it out. its actually pretty good.

Yes, I gave it a go back in the day. And yes it was quite good. You won't be able to do anything like that with this game, I tell you what. This strikes me as more on action CRPG with random map generation that you have very limited control of and can create some fluff quests - go X amount of skeletons - and that's about it. Hope I'm wrong but I doubt it at this point.

Exactly, words have meaning. It's not just a random pronunciation of letters that sounds vaguely word like. MADD is a perfect example of an acronym. Mad is in the dictionary, elex is not. Otherwise we'd all just be spewing jibebrish at each other and no one would have any clue what anyone else was talking about. When I ask you for a glass of water you understand precisely what I mean. If I ask you for a schmarblemoop dwif flassenhoof what am I asking you for?

I'm firmly in the camp that unless it's predicated on an actual word (e.g. MADD) than it's an abbreviation, not an acronym. Seeing as ELEX isn't an actual word it would therefore be an abbreviation.

It's an acronym for, "Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial". An acronym is a word made out of the beginning letter or letters of a series of words and is used as a type of shorthand. It need not be based on an actual word and can lead to an actual word over time. The acronym for the phrase, "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge", being a prime example. An abbreviation is the shortened version of an actual word.

Not so. There's always been considerable disagreement over what constitutes a word and an abbreviation. I believe it has to have an actual word as a counterpart for it to be considered an acronym, otherwise it's an abbreviation like F.B.I. or C.I.A.. ELEX isn't a word, ergo it's an abbreviation.

Why not Gattaca? What good is screening people if you're not going to help them for lack of insurance anyway? If anything insurance companies will use said screening to deny people coverage.

They do have a point. A lot of it was needless time wasting. Driving halfway across the fucking map just to start or finish a mission was just so much needless bullshit. W3 handles that sort of thing much better. At least most side quests and monster contracts are in the immediate area.

Cutter, I know you are just as much excited/Interested about this game as I am. but I'm betting you now, we are not going to get much out of this video streamlining today. I hope I'm wrong. but they have already said that we wont see character creation yet because they are still fine tuning those.


But I want to see the Campaign tools at work. I need to see what you can and cant do.

Nah, it's not going to happen, man. You know it. I know it. If it was nothing but good news they would have spilled the beans by now. Methinks it'll be as I predicted it would be, NWN-lite. Bah! What a shame. For a moment there I was really excited we'd have a new NWN.
