Troll Video Q&A

Post by serleran »

Get your questions in now for next week's Troll Q&A. Remember, they want easy questions, like "did you get dropped a lot s a child" or "has Davis befriended any new fences lately?" Or, it can be something related to a game or C&C, but should be generic so they can anwer it... you know, 'cause they're Trolls.

Just passing along what I saw on the FB.

Swahili:

Thats easy.

Its been out in klik and swahili for years. We've been reverse engineering it to Arkansas English, then from Arkansas "Anglish" to American English as preferred by American Psychological Association guides to layout and format. Of course Peter will insist on Queen's English variations when moving it to Indesign, and kerning all paragraphs so that they must be read in the "round", which is a very progressive way of taking a 400 page book and turning it down to about 225 with 2400 words per page, thus passing the savings on to you. Pretty much thats what has taken so long.

Ah, I wish I had known. I was raised largely in Shannon, County Missourah so I am fluent in Arkansan. I have in fact spent more than one weekend hanging out on the river drinking and shooting at stuff.

If I can further save by avoiding the Queen's English version, I will. I like Freddy Mercury, but if I can save a few bucks and get it sooner, I will do so.

Raised in Laclede county MissouRI and now live in Wright County. On a high enough hill I can look south and almost see Arkansass.

To be fair you can look at any densely forested hill with smoke coming up from somewhere on it and pretty much see all of Arkansas.

I think I'd like to see Davis answer questions a la The Askaninja.com Ninja. That would be stellar.

I'm interested in learning what other big projects TLG hopes to publish in 2010.

On a related not, I'd like to what extent the big projects are going to affect the smaller ones (Crusader, modules, etc.). I know the Trolls have said these will take a back seat to the bigger projects, but I'm curious to what extent it will effect the smaller jobs.

I wonder if TLG has a plan to compete with games like Dragon Age (RPG) and the coming Goodman Games DCC rpg. Both seem like they could be threats to C&C.
