Been checking for updates. I guess Talanall is on hiatus. If it's too many games, just update the one my character is in :)

I've been here. It's been cold. And lonely. I'm waiting for spring.

I had a computer issue that kept me effectively away for a few days, but that's resolved.

Edit: Incidentally, the Archive had a birthday this past week. We've been doing this odd thing we do for close to 20 years now.

I succumbed to a heady mixture of holiday travel, seasonal depression, and stuff related to venison hunting season. None of those things are unusual for me to deal with from November through January, but things got a little intense this year.

I am now recovering, and will be back to what passes for normal around here very soon.

I'll take your silence on stalking animals bare-chested through the forest with a knife clenched in your teeth as confirmation.

I was not bare-chested. But I did grow a Beard of Sadness.

It's funny. People who find out that I hunt are about evenly split between, "Really?!? Talanall? Hunting? Are you SURE? Is he going to be okay?" and "Sounds like him, alright."

For anyone who's surprised I'd just ask them, "If he doesn't hunt animals, how is he going to get the tallow he needs to fashion his own candles. One doesn't read medieval manuscripts by fluorescent!"

I imagine they'd smack themselves in the head and exclaim, "Of course! It's obvious now!"

That's... actually, that makes a lot of sense.

Tallow comes from beef and mutton. It also smells terrible, and would only be used in inferior candles. The good stuff is made of beeswax.

There you go. Barechested beekeeping. That's a man's hobby right there.

In the preview, I read this as "barechested barkeeping." Having known many, many bartenders in my life, I was both extremely aroused and extremely frightened.
