The Listeners Walter de la Mare ‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Traveller, Knocking on the moonlit door; And his horse in the silence champed the grasses Of the forest’s ferny floor: And a bird flew up out of the turret, Above the Traveller’s head: And he smote upon the door again a second time; ...
Item of slight interest to spamwatchers: there seems to be a new naming protocol for spam accounts kicking about. The good old "First-name-followed-by-three-random-letters" is still very much current, of course, but there appears to be a new one which uses little Danish phrases, all in lower case an...
Is it worth considering a kind of career/development path for a player-owned Rock Hermit? Beginning with, presumably, mining camp: a basic setup that produces a small trickle of income offset by some basic operational costs. With hard work and a bit of luck (a gems/precious metals strike, say, or ev...
I think that was probably to save weight: they wanted to bring as many rock samples as possible back with them, so they had to leave stuff behind. Every gram counts.
It's not really what the book is about, so I don't know if it counts, but The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy begins with the Earth being destroyed to make way for a hyperspace bypass.

Hi iGregory, welcome to the boards! It's an interesting suggestion … as to whether it's possible or not, you'll have to wait for one of the clever people to come along, but I've always been surprised by just what is possible in this game. In terms of gameplay, it might be necessary to allow for diff...
People may already be aware of this, but I didn't see it until today. A very sad story, but I have nothing but admiration for all those involved - and especially for Drew. https://www.theguardian.com/games/2019/jul/04/how-a-video-game-community-filled-my-nephews-final-days-with-happiness-elite-dange...

It's worth pointing out that the highest courier reputations aren't earned solely through grinding; there's quite a lot of zapping involved too. Valuable documents can attract unwelcome attention …

Hi GearsNSuch, welcome to the boards! Your Astromine Convict looks suitably grim and coffin-shaped … As a convict, though, maybe it could have something to make it visible (even if it's faded/degraded over time) - the hull equivalent of an orange jumpsuit maybe? Even a couple of orange flashers?

That depends on whether owning a rock hermit would generate income for the player. Very much this … and something like this would be a long-term investment, so it could take a long time before anyone sees a return on their investment. I think, in game terms, it might make sense to ask what you want...
Yup – that'll do it! Over to you for the next question …spud42 wrote: ↑Wed Jul 03, 2019 10:12 amhttps://tardis.fandom.com/wiki/Red_Dwar ... (TV_story)
does this count?
Ah, OK then - the Ark of the Covenant in the Imperial trash compactor sweeps the pot! ffutures is up next. Other crossovers could include the TARDIS easter egg in Fallout . There was also an eight-issue comic series called Assimilation2 , which was a Star Trek: TNG / Doctor Who crossover. And there ...
